into the woods



"See there aren't so many bugs." Ravi looked back at Roger on their hike into the woods. It wasn't like they'd stopped on a dirt road and said Lets go there. They were at a state park. Anyway, he and Doyle were lugging the heavy stuff. The tents.

"We should have gotten a cabin." Roger fretted slightly as he followed a bit behind. Olivia was head of the pack like a scout. It seemed she was really good a camping. Something that Ravi didn't really know.

"You know you have to call, like a year in advance, for those." Doyle reminded him.

Roger gave a little bit of a huff butt went on as if he had no choice in the matter.

"We should camp there." Olivia pointed to the clearing. It was flat and looked as if that's where campers usually camped. She put down her backpack and made her claim.

There were things Ravi wanted to talk to just Olivia about. Like the writers group where Steve lived. It was funny that she hadn't wanted to bring her netbook or something. She had left it all behind. But Ravi looked at Roger and noticed he had earbuds on.

"What are you doing?" Did he have his iPod?

"Nothing." Roger winced. "Just a little radio I haven't used since middle school. I have to know whats going on in the world, somehow." He gave Ravi a pout.

Ravi rolled his eyes. He knew who wasn't going to be setting up for camp.
