Baby Face Monster saw Ellie in the make-shift lab he had setup for her in his cave. He snuck by the lab before she could see him.
“This is one of the toughest things I have ever had to do,” said Baby Face to himself as he walked away. “I need to give Ellie her space. I am foolish if I think we could ever have a life together.”
Baby Face spent the day at the lake. He swam out as far as he could and then he rolled over on his back and floated. He loved the water, even more so since Ellie discovered that he was half-man, half-sea creature.
“I swear Baby Face is ignoring me,” said Ellie. “I miss his company. I better go make sure he is okay.”
Ellie walked down to the lake. She saw Baby Face drying himself off with a towel. She walked over to him.
“There you are,” said Ellie. “How was the water?”
“It was very refreshing on this very warm summer day,” said Baby Face.
“Are you trying to avoid me?” asked Ellie, getting right to the point.
“I am just trying to give you some space,” said Baby Face.
“I don’t need any space from you,” said Ellie. “I look forward to spending time with you. I enjoy your company.”
“Really?” asked Baby Face.
“Yes,” said Ellie. “I have very strong feelings for you. I am in love with you.”
“But I feel I am holding you back,” said Baby Face.
“Not at all,” said Ellie. “Being here with you is my choice. I can’t think of being anywhere else.”
Baby Face walked up to Ellie and gave her a kiss.
“I love you,” he whispered in her ear.
“And I love you,” said Ellie.
Baby Face took Ellie by the hand and danced with her under a canopy of trees with the sunlight beaming down on them.
