Tanis paid careful attention to what she said; she truly DID consider it, but alas she couldn't place her life on hold like that! Besides, Tanis couldn't
"I can pass by often and check up on you..." The took a brief pause, "But I have a lot to do out there," she'd cock a thumb over her shoulder, "I can't stay here for two months! Though I don't know why you would want to. If something were to happen to you — well, forests aren't known for their health care!"
Tanis cave a curt nod, "I DO work pretty hard; I'm on my feet all day, save when eating. Though I'm seventeen at the moment."
Denim breathed in and out slowly then let go of Tanis' hand. "I understand I suppose. It's a lot of me to ask but I suppose I'm asking since I'm all alone in this matter at the moment. I haven't a clue how my parents will react even though I'm far older then someone like you and they'd probably expect this to happen one day. I've not had a boyfriend or really many friends I can rely on outside of a small monastery I once trained in South City. So it's hard for me... to ask... for help."
She let her hands fall to her sides then add, "But you sound like you would like to give it... Just promise to visit me either once a month or every other month and I'll take the time to head back to civilization and find a city I can live in. I want to stay out here a little bit though to continue living the martial artist's life and understand just a little how women like us might live out here by ourselves based on our physical abilities alone. They always say men can do it with ease and it often shows yet I want to attempt to do what they can if only a little."
She gave Tanis a smile then shooed her away with her right hand. "You can go if you want now and check up on me in the coming months. I'll be starting a training regimen soon today and will probably be moving my ship towards the nearest city I can." She didn't want to state this directly but her intentions were to literally drag it from where it currently sat to the closest area of populated people as part of her training. She felt she might be strong enough since both Plaid and her had moved it before on the desolate planet they were on before. She didn't also want to admit that Tanis had likely been right about her ship and that it needed to be traded in or repaired. She had just fixed it up after all and to have to send it back into a shop was troublesome.
Tanis gave a swift nod at the girl's comment. It made far more sense to her.
"I wish you the best of luck with your parents." She mumbled, scratching the back of her head. From what she'd been led to believe her parents didn't exactly seem like the nicest of folk. Then again, she'd only been hearing her side of the story. "If you're going to be here for a while you'll probably be needing some food or supplies, huh? Unless you just want to hunt for berries or meat." Tanis paused, "Hey, I know; I'll go out and get you some stuff!"
Tanis leaped through the door of the ship, "I'll be back with some food!"
"I-uh," Denim began to say as Tanis nodded and spoke of her parents. She didn't get to finish though because Tanis told her she was going out to get her food. Denim appreciated the thought and made that abundantly clear when her stomach let out a loud, "Gurgle! Gurgle!" noise.
She blushed and cried, "Wait! Wait for me! I may be pregnant but I'm not invalid!" She found as she soon ran to the front of the ship's hatch, that despite their difference power, Tanis was long gone on her mission. Denim sighed then turned and walked back into the ship.
Her stomach continued to growl and she thought, "Might as well get a snack..." her hands swiftly moved to the few pantries in the ship's kitchen that hung over its stove and moved to grab everything from hard tack to crackers off the shelf. She then used her bare hands to rip into the plastic and boxes they were in and began to eat. Hopefully Tanis would come back soon sometime because poor Denim felt this food was not going to last as she munched through her foodstuffs.
