Jade was grateful when Yrra swept her up into the kiss so that she could focus on Yrra rather than how awkward she felt. She smiled as they pulled apart, feeling her cheeks warm as Yrra reached out to fix her lipstick.
“Thank you Yrra and don’t worry about the makeup.” She said, remembering to thank Bo later when she came back. She found herself admiring Yrra when her thoughts were interrupted by Larffles bounded in demanding attention. It took a second to gather her thoughts before she could get Larffles to calm down.
“I’m ready to go.” Jade said, grabbing Yrra’s hand after she locked the door. “I’d love to fly there.” She bit her lip briefly before deciding to be bold and put her arm around Yrra’s waist.
“Well, well” Yrra said, lifting them up into the air, “someone’s feeling forward.” She giggled as a small blush crept across Jade’s cheeks. ”I’m kidding, Jade,” Yrra said, pulling Jade a bit closer. “You can be as forward as you like with me.” Jade smiled at this. Yrra planted a quick kiss on Jade’s temple. ”Hold on,” Yrra told her, “the restaurant’s across town, so I’m gonna speed up.” They began to dart through the clouds in their path. The beads of moisture rolled off the pink barrier that surrounded them. Yrra just hoped Jade would speak up if she started to feel sick. The last thing Yrra wanted was the date to start with Jade throwing up, especially because it would be Yrra’s fault for being careless.
They landed about a block away from the restaurant, and Yrra gave Jade a moment to catch her breath. ”Sorry,” Yrra said, “I know that was different than the flight to the beach.” When Jade seemed to steady herself, Yrra grabbed her hand and began to lead her to the restaurant. ”You should try traveling at light speeds,” Yrra said, “or not,” she added when Jade blanched. ”I just hope I didn’t ruin your appetite,” Yrra continued, opening the door of the restaurant, “because I’ve heard the food here is amazing.”
Flying always left Jade breathless as she held onto Yrra, even if there was no potential to fall as long as the pink energy surrounded them (unlike her method of flying which she was failing to get to work). It was always amazing to travel this way and see the world pass by beneath.They landed about a block away and it took Jade a moment to get her balance back. The mention of light speed made her feel dizzy a second before she shook her head.
“No, I just don’t think I can imagine it but don’t worry, my appetite is far from ruined.” Jade laughed as they walked in. The hostess sat them at a booth in the back of the restaurant.
