Their eyes met. In that moment, the birds, chirped a little louder, and Olstavo walked a little lighter. The sun shone a little brighter, it's warm rays melting the snow that much more. The girl, Anya, new nothing of Olstavo's mind set. She saw a bearded man gazing on her with much more affection than she could ever return, and it frightened her beyond despair. She quickly looked away, pressing out the creases on her school uniform.
Olstavo's heart stopped. But he would not be deterred. "Maeden, Maeden, Maedste du ein pöppiet ender mein!" Olstavo greeted her. He came up to her. He was loyal to her, and was her faithful servant. A look of admiration filled his eyes, which roamed over the entirety of her feminine form. But all this attention still, startled the school girl, who as yet was unaccustomed to the power she would soon wield over other men.
"Please, how is it you come to be out here by yourself? It is dangerous here in the Kedlstamach, at this hour!" Olstavo meant to speak with the utmost of protection, not knowing in the slightest how the girl would take it. And she did not understand this either. The words seemed to her, a threat, rather than a reassurance, and she trembled underneath the man's large form.
She trembled, delicately speaking, which to Olstavo, made her all the more beautiful, "Unt dass de du, Michnier? Wo ist dass kamste du ender hier?" Anya felt compelled to ask, to find how the man himself had come this far into the Kedlstamach. This deep into the forest, there could have been no good reason.
Olstavo blushed, and took out his book, upon which he had been making notes of herbs and flowers, their properties, and their medicinal values. Anya felt flush, and more than a little embarrassed. Ostavo bent low to the ground, writing in his book some properties of a new species of plant simply standing in plain sight. He beckoned her to sit by him.
“Kamste, Kamste, Maeden! Sitste Sie Hier!” He said eagerly. She, now slightly less nervous, did come, and did sit there by him. Olstavo talked to her rapidly, of the plants in the Kedlstamach. He had plans for the little space rock. The ecosystem was in its infancy, but, nurtured by colonists, such as he could bring, it could become a bustling space port. He waved his long arm up through the air, pointing it in the direction of the sky,
“Für ender die teime, Ich shael maede ein lacpührte, de dass dere bin mein Kaedelstadd...” He became quiet after saying this... as if his dream was something long and far away. Anya laughed, not in a mean way, but in a way that was infected by his dreams and optimism. To build a colony out of the Kedlstamach. To build a ship in the proportions that he was talking about... A great, grand, Kaedelstadd...it made her love this man.
“Unt Michnier, Shael du maede alle dass alön?” She asked. By now they were lying in the grass, comfortably and quiet. But in that moment their eyes met again, and there was no need for them to speak their vows, for both had said, “I do.”
“No. I shall not do all this alone, Maeden,” Olstavo said, “I shall do it with you.”Wo Kammen – 563 words(Not including Title)
