"Our taste buds can't taste anything unless it's extremely sweet or extremely hot or both. So this is quite tasteless."

My eyebrows go up at that information. That is quite interesting and really unexpected. I suppose Isabel doesn't have any sweet or hot stuff with her either.

"But it's okay, I'll manage. I don't want to be a bother."

I shake my head at that. "You can't fully enjoy the trip when you can't stand the food. I'll see if I can fetch anything from the cook."

Not waiting for a reply, I get up and head over to the cook. "Hey, uhm, do you have something really eh, spicy? Like hot chillis, dips, tabasco ..."

"Why? You don't like the food?"

"Uhm well ..." I can't really say my companion is an alien from outer space, now can I? Glancing back at Isabel once more, I lean closer to the man. "Well you see, my ... partner over there, she loves spicy food ... really really loves it and uh ... especially during ... you know, *those days* in the months."

I can feel my face heating up at that lie but still better than the truth.

"Ah yes, PMS is a bitch, wait a minute buddy." With that, the man disappears for a few moments and I refuse to look back at Isabel again. "Here you go. Hope it helps, man."

"Thanks." I reply as I gather the pepperonis, chillis and small bottle of tabasco in my hands and walk back to Isabel.

"Hope this helps." I say as I put the items down.

"You can't fully enjoy the trip when you can't stand the food. I'll
see if I can fetch anything from the cook."
Alex remarks and jumps
up, I look at him in surprise, "Alex, what're you doing? There's no
need..." I stop mid-sentence when I realise he's not listening and
simply watch as he goes over to the cook

He comes back with an assortment of things in his arms, "Hope this
helps."
he says before putting them down in front of me and I
smile at him, "You didn't have to do that...but thank you very much.
It was very thoughtful of you." I tell him softly, feeling a little
overwhelmed

If it had been Kivar, he would probably have told me to grin and bear
it. I take the bottle of tabasco sauce and pour it liberally over my
omlette and takke a bite, enjoying it at last, "You've been very kind
to me." I tell him

"You didn't have to do that...but thank you very much. It was very thoughtful of you."

Oh thank God, she didn't hear what I told the cook. I shrug at her words as I watch fascinated how she pours lots of the hot sauce onto her food. It's obvious that she really enjoys the food more now ... even though this looks very ... gross.

"You've been very kind to me."

"What? C'mon, it was no big deal. It's not like I had to fight for the tabasco or the other stuff. Hm, maybe we should try to get a few bottles of it so you have some for the rest of our trip." I muse, glancing once more at Isabel's food before continuing to eat mine. "Hey, can't you like ... alter ketchup or something so it tastes like tabasco?" I ask quietly.

"What? C'mon, it was no big deal. It's not like I had to fight for
the tabasco or the other stuff.
I can't help but grin when he says that.

"Yes, I guess I could change it but it's never as good as the real
thing. Know what I mean." I explain before putting the last bite of
the omlette in to my mouth

"Yeah, I guess." I mumble, still slightly grossed out by Isabel's food/taste combination. But at least she looks really happy and satisfied and I'm glad that I could do something that made her feel better.

Finishing my plate, I ask "Do you want to walk around the camp a bit so you can get familar with the place? Or would you rather find Shannon so she can tell us when we'll have to get up tomorrow so you can get your beauty sleep?"

Isabel

Was that last question supposed an attempt at sarcasm? I lift an
eyebrow and open my mouth to speak but before I can say anything
Shannon steps in to the tent, "Hey I'm sorry you guys, that was
work and I couldn't ignore it. Anyway, looks like you found yourselves
something to eat.
she says coming up to the table

"Isabel would you like me to show you to your tent so that you can
settle down, I'm sorry there's no attached bathroom...we only have a
common shower, which is behind our tents."


I shudder inwardly...what have I gotten myself in to? But Shannon is
being such a welcoming host that I can't appear ungrateful so I shake
my head, "That's quite alright...I'll manage." I respond with a smile
and get up "Let's go." I follow her to my tent "You can take a
shower now or after dinner, up to you." she tells me "We leave very
early tomorrow morning so you may like to shower and then get some
rest."

"Thanks." I wait till she leaves before opening my bag and taking out
a clean pair of cotton shorts, a t-shirt and a towel, removing my
dirty clothes and wrapping the towel around me, making sure to grab my
shower gel. Before stepping out I take a quick look around, no one
seems too be about so I walk quickly towards the shower tent.

Isabel didnt seem happy about not having her own bathroom but she didn't complain, I have to give her that. She might not be so spoiled after all.

Hm, I know where the showers are, if I were a voyeur, I could take a sneak peek but sadly, I've been raised to be a gentleman.

I spot Shannon coming back and sit up straighter out of reflex (Shannon can be scary). "Did everything go well?"

Shannon

I grin at Alex as I sit down on his cot, "Seems like as far as I can
tell. Sooo...tell me, what's the deal with her and you? She doesn't
seem like the usual kind of girl you hang out with. She comes across
as being high society and kind of sheltered in a way. Any truth to my
first impressions?" I ask him as I lean forward out of curiosity

"What? I can't be friends with the high society?" I ask in mock hurt. Shannon is way too smart - we'll have to be careful around her.

"Her brother is the ... fiance of one of my best friends, that's how we met and when I told her about the trip, she seemed genuinely interested so I offered her to come along."

I'm still surprised that Isabel agreed on such short notice. "But yes, I normally wouldn't hang out with people like Isabel."

Shannon

"Hmm" I sit back back and pretend to ponder over what he just said and
then cock my head to one side and grin at him "So not physical
attraction whatsoever? And don't lie to me 'coz I will know if you
are."
