Eyes heavy. Weighted down over her eyeballs like sheets tucked tightly under their bed corner. Limbs weak; a few jolts shot through them in an attempt to regain control, but alas nothing of significance came about. Ruby was paralyzed by her fear, or maybe this was one of those sleeps that you couldn’t wake from. Ruby had had those many times before– the sort where you know that you’re sleeping, only the mind and body disagree entirely. She didn’t remember exactly what happened last, yet she could hear some mumbles coming from those around her.
“Yououer maj ..estey- BYYYY THE GOODS! NNUOOO!” someone was shouting, yet the words came to her quite distorted.
"Excuse me... Lord Cassius…Could you please assist ..” Cassius! Is that his name? Oh dear. I am so sorry, Cassero–ius! I meant you no offense!
Hello?? Why is nobody answering me!? Ruby heard further mumbling, although anymore was indecipherable to her sleeping mind. The next thing that she felt was a sensation of her hair being plucked out of her head. This irritated her ever-so intensely that she might just be able to snap out of it. Time for her was moving at an unreliable pace. One more irritated jolt pulsated through her body, and then she soared upright and out of her sleep.
“WaaOWW!.. LET GO OF MY HAIR, SCOUNDREL.” Ruby shouted in frustration and pain. Shocked, she gazed around at the group that joined her on a blanket in the sand. A new face was present, and several familiar ones appeared in front of her. She vigorously rubbed her eyes to make sure she was awake this time. “Livvy! Oh, it is so good to see you. I– I didn’t meant that.” she blurted out, recalling now that her words were unwarranted.
“What is going on? Did we all get entirely too slap-happy on this beach earlier?” Ruby chuckled in amusement as she strove to remember earlier events. “Hey, I remember!” Ruby pointed at Cassius, who was sitting on the blanket in front of her, and shook her finger across the circle at Olivia and the other fellow as well. “That devil girl, Layla? Is that her name? Ohh, she must have brought some bad juju to this-here beach! I am very sensitive to that kind of stuff!” she said in a high-pitched, concerned-kind of voice. “What about you all? Are you quite alright?” Ruby projected her concern onto her friends, and with complete sincerity, she gripped Liv’s hand and gave it a nice squeeze.
“Thank you.” she muttered. She was not entirely sure as to what she was thanking Olivia for, nonetheless she knew that she had assisted in some way in bringing her to the safety of this environment after that evil witch nearly took them all down. Her eyes were wide with gratitude at this moment. In the next moment to come, Ruby had something else on her mind.
“Did you guys bring any snacks? Any nibblers? This is just the perfect spot for a picnic."
