Chapter 18: A Special Evening

Ariel was starting to get तितलियों या rather knots in her stomach she never had felt something like this before was this something that only happens to humans "Are आप ready" Nakoma asked she nodded "Ok follow me" Ariel took a deep breathe it helped a little bit but the nervousness was still there she slowly walked behind her as she opened the front door "Excuse me John she's ready" she looked to see if Ariel was behind her but she wasn't when she went back into the house she found her back up agains't the दीवार completely फ्रोज़न "Oh come on sweetie don't be it ok come on" Nakoma gave her a smile and offered her hand Ariel gratefully took it giving her a smile back as she lead her outside with her head down.
As soon as she looked up she saw John's smiling face all her nerves went away as he walked toward placing his hands in hers "You look beautiful" giving her a किस on the cheek he turned to Nakoma "Thank आप for helping get her ready", "It was my please John sir she's such a sweet girl", "That she is please let one of my men escort आप back to your village", "Thank आप kindly John but I can find my way back" "Are आप sure it would be a comfort to the both of us knowing that आप made it back safely" John replied turning to Ariel she nodded in agreement "Very well" कहा Nakoma "If it would make things easier for the both of you", "Wonderful Lon would आप please escort Ms. Nakoma back to her village oh but why me I wanted to meet that pretty girl of yours John", "She'll still be here when आप get back आप half-wit" कहा Ben "But but...", "Get goin the sooner आप leave the sooner आप get back" Ariel couldn't help but giggle and neither could John "Haha on सेकंड thought Ben why don't आप go with him", "You mean आप want me to tag along with that loon? he's a big lad he can take care of himself", "No I can't I'd feel much better if I had a buddy buddy", "NO WAY I'M NOT MISSIN THE CHANCE TO MEET THIS GIRL ITHER", "She will be here when आप both get back now I believe I gave आप both an order",
"Yes Smith" Ben and Lon कहा together "Come on आप we have a job to why do आप always have to drag me along hey", "Oh Ben come on आप know there's no one you'd rather do a mission with", "Oh hush आप Twit."

"Haha oh those two I've never had finer men आप learn to get use to them please have a seat" John led her over to the आग and helped her sit down on one of the logs then came and sat अगला to her "There we are here let me get आप something to eat all we have is biscuits, beans, and मक्का, मकई that Nakoma's people gave to us I know its not much but its all we have I hope that's alright" Ariel nodded she didn't mind at all.
"Oh where are my manners Thomas this is Ariel she's going to staying with us for a while" John कहा as he was getting her a plate of खाना placing it on her lap along with a fork "It's a pleasure Ms. Ariel" कहा Thomas as Ben and Lon were coming back "Where's the grub man I'm starvin" कहा Ben "Me to" कहा Lon "Well John Nakoma made it back to her village safely just like आप asked", "Good Ben job well done आप two", "Thanks Smith" they both replied.
Ariel handed them both a plate and a fork "Why thank आप miss", "Yes thanks um what is your name my dear", "Oh I'm afraid her she can't talk her name is Ariel" John replied "Can't talk how did she have her tongue cut out of something?" Ben asked Ariel nodded no "Well then maybe if has something to do with her pipes हे I don't know maybe they were stolen या something pssh like that's possible" , "So Smith if the girl can't talk how do आप know her name" asked Lon "Just a lucky guess" he कहा winking at Ariel "Ah well she certainly is a lovely one आप did good Smith" "Thank आप Lon" he कहा and Ariel bowed her head a little as a way of saying thank आप Lon smiled back at her.

Ariel was about to start eating when she noticed the fork she remembered that scuttle had told her it was called a dinglehopper and humans used them to comb their hair she grabbed it excited and started running it through her hair when she noticed that everyone was staring at her strangely she immediately put it down and was ashamed when Lon and Ben started laughing "Haha well that's new one हे Lon", "Haha हे Ben would आप mind helping use my fork to comb through my lovely locks haha", "Why of course Lon what's a pal for हे haha" John could tell that Ariel was embarrassed she didn't mean to act so foolish she completely forgot what they were used for it had been so long since she dinned with humans he was just about to say something when she started to laugh with them now that she thought about it it was kind of silly soon everyone was laughing it made John feel good seeing his men having a good time it had been a long hard couple of weeks for all of them.
"Haha here आप Ariel" John कहा handing her a new fork so she didn't have to use the one with her hair on it she took it from him and mouth thank आप and started eating and found that खाना was actually quite delicious it was new texture and taste that she had never experienced before it was better than eating seafood and crustaceans for sure but what she enjoyed most was listening to the conversations as they ate hearing about all their families and adventures they had especially when they talked about going to Virginia just last साल together and meeting Pocahontas. Ariel remembered when she first heard about her the night she saved John from drowning and how sad he was then but now when he talked about her all she could see was happiness it made her happy to knowing that she helped in some way to help him let go of his past and knew he would never forget her just like she would never forget Eric he would always have a special place in her दिल forever.

Once everyone was done with रात का खाना the men started to play संगीत with the musical instruments they'd brought with them the संगीत was so beautiful that it made Ariel want to dance Thomas was the first one to ask her followed द्वारा Ben and Lon until there was only one left "May I have this dance" John asked Ariel nodded with a smile on her face he took her hand and placed the other around her waist while they played soft संगीत to create a romantic mood.
It seemed as if they were the only two people in the whole world as they glided across the camp ground coming in and out of spins and as he lifted Ariel they're eyes never left each other प्यार was starting to form the men were so glad to see John so happy he deserved it after all that he had been through and they wanted nothing और him than to find his true love. As the संगीत was coming to an end they both stopped and just gazed into each other's eyes for a moment "Your a wonderful dancer Ariel thank आप for dancing with me" she smiled at him and mouth your welcome she was getting quite tired he could tell instantly "You should get some rest I'll be right back men" John walked her back to the केबिन "I hope this evening was pleasant enough for आप I wanted to make it as special as I could" आप did she mouthed he smiled again "Well आप should get some sleep आप can sleep here tonight my tent is over there if आप need anything goodnight Ariel" goodnight she mouthed.

Ariel went inside and changed into a गुलाबी nightgown that was left out on the बिस्तर she figured it also belonged to John's mother also but she didn't mind and went over to the window to watch John a little while longer he waved to her and she waved back with a smile on her face. Grabbing her fork from रात का खाना she brushed it through her hair and set it on the night stand climbing into the बिस्तर everything was so comfy and soft just like a sea sponge she pulled the covers over her and blew out the candle as soon as her eyes closed she replayed everything that happened that night in her mind dreaming of her special dance with John.
