Kissing Australia

Page 2

He turned to me, amused, and leaned back precariously on that old steel frame.  “I like to watch the boats come in, I guess.” He answered, his thick Ausie accent coated the air, thrilling me at its unusual commonality.  I folded my arms and walked gingerly towards him, that small crooked smile in my gaze.  “Well that’ not how we talk around here…you are from a different land all together…somewhere much farther than that bridge.”

He smiled, his eyes guarded slightly by the bridge and the shadows of that thick moonless night.  “Do you cook wombat and ride wild kangaroos; dance around fires and play with the great white sharks…or is that all the thinking of naive Tennessee legend?”  He laughed as I now neared him, holding my hand out for a warm and hungry hand shake.  “I’m Desseray…but you can call me Dessy for short.”  He smiled with a slight twinkle in his guarded eyes.  “You can call me Mac.”

“Desseray, if you weren’t always goin skirtin off  into the middle of no-where…I swear girl, I think I’ve saved your life half a dozen times; at that’s just counting this last year!” Trent said, eyeballing towards Mac’s amused gaze.  “Trent, I swear, you are the most impertinent and annoying fellow…if I weren’t a woman I’d slug you!  Always following me around like you do, I am a grown woman you know!  I can take care of myself…and maybe I should just slug you if that’s what it’ll take to drive the point home to your thick skull!”
