Status: Late Afternoon
Rod was happy and cheerful at the thought, but something was wrong. He felt Zen energy fluctuating from whatever he was doing. He attempted to contact Zen until Meril smiled and kissed his hand.
"Yes. It is safe to say." Meril was quite pleased and happy about the thought.
Rod would've jumped for joy but instead he embraced her and gave her a hug.
" Thank you Meril." Rod said pleased, " I'm glad you're in my life."
He kissed her cheek and leaned on her shoulder to watch the sunset.
"My apologies Sir. I like to read people to get to know them better. My apologies if this seems rude."
Ozman saw that he made her feel guilty so he had to change her mood.
"Ha, that's ok Moir I like that." Ozman said laughing, " I knew you would try to read me but I know a few techniques myself on how to detect people reading me. I could teach you how to detect a person's personality and all if you would let me."
Styx moved closer and closer to Moir trying to read her. He hissed and bowed before Moir and crawled back into the tree.
" Styx told me you are a friendly person who is kind to all people." Ozman said watching Rod and Meril out the corner of his eye, " You'll protect Meril's life even if it meant losing your own. Also you can't read Rod."
Ozman motioned Zen to come near him as they walked a little farther away from Moir.
" Zen, listen to me, don't say you like Moir and don't say you like anybody." Ozman said with a serious face, " Your powers are fluctuating and it will continue unless you stay the way you are before meeting Moir."
Ozman smiled and faded away leaving Zen and Moir alone.
Zen thought about what Ozman said and decided to take his advice. He wouldn't hurt Moir's feelings and tell her he can't be friends with her, he decided to keep a straight face and keep things the way they are with Moir.
" Sorry about that Moir." Zen said putting his hand on her shoulder, " He said he had to take care of something private. Shall we continue our walk?"
