“No not really. Nothing here is interesting.” you said in a sour tone, this seemed to offend the young man, though he tried his best not to show it.
“You don’t want to do anything?” he said to you, concerned. “Well listen, we don’t have to do anything at all. We can just go and chill at my house!” he said with excitement, something about his tone kind of made you feel a bit more excited, though you couldn’t help but think that this ‘peasant’s’ house would also be nothing to take a second glance at. When you considered it though, it seemed a lot better than to stand out in the sweltering heat in a shanty village where it was obvious that no one could afford air conditioning.
Your dark black coat shone under the bright midday sky, and you wondered if his house would at least be cooler than outdoors- others seemed to like it, and when you looked around, you seemed to notice how the other residence of the unimpressive little village were enjoying themselves as they took a swim in the more shallow parts of the lake. You bit your lip in anticipation and concern, wondering how your next move may impact your life.
