"I didn't think that zi would do such a thing. How cold!" Renee said with an exasperated tone of voice.
"Though zi isn't human, zi certainly gives me the shivers like Gavria does," Mariei mentioned.
The two girls sat on the metal ledge, swinging their legs and watching the sea undulate below them. The sky was slowly turning crimson as the sun bowed down into the horizon.
Renee turned to Mariei and sucked in her lips before speaking. "What do you think will happen when we go to fight to Risenen dogs?" she said rather hastily.
"I can't be sure," Mariei replied calmly. "I just know that those Raeges will pay for the dilemma they've put us through." Her hands, resting on the metal ledge on either side of her tightened, and her knuckles turned white. Renee looked towards her, but did not dare look into her eyes. She knew what Mariei had gone through. Even though she appeared calm, there was a hurricane brewing inside of her, Renee could tell. She did not want to mention it though. Instead, she changed the subject.
"Mariei, how's your invention going?" Renee asked cautiously.
Mariei's eyes were blank as slate, but she replied, "it's fine. It's almost finished."
After that, she was silent, staring out at the horizon.
Renee nodded slightly trying to show that she understood, but at the same time she did not want to speak because of a sudden fear that took over her mind. It was not that she did not like Mariei, it was just Mariei was sometimes difficult to approach. Renee had been her friend for a very long time, but as time passed, it seemed like they were getting farther and farther away from each other. Renee was not sure what to do any longer. Being friends as soldiers was more difficult than she had imagined previously.
