"Ugh," Milo smacked his head into the table he was sitting at, "Board games are dumb."
"What do you suggest, then?" Lixa asked, hands on hips sternly looking at him. Cecilia stared too, albiet not being in the conversation.
"Something not dumb. We're at a summer camp, let's go do outdoorsy things." He got up and headed for the door, "I am bored, and I am going to the lake. Have fun playing your board games." He left, tensly, leaving a bad feeling in the room.
Lixa or Cecilia didn't speak, than Cecilia broke the silence, "One of us should follow him..."
"Yeah... You go."
"Cause, I'm not a fan of the water."
Cecilia just sighed and muttured, "Fine. Come get us if something happens..." with that, she got up and walked out, heading for the lake.
"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
