Tessa had calmed down. She was resting on Alek’s chest, and everything was very quiet. It felt safe.
"Are you stressing out over the temple thing?" Alek asked, finally breaking the silence.
Tessa cleared her throat a little. Her lips felt dry from the kissing. For some reason, she was having trouble remembering why she’d been stressed out in the first place.
"Because they had it coming, you know," Alek said, "What with picking on you and Barry—"
"Perry," Tessa butted in, and then she laughed a little.
"Yeah, the little guy." Alek smiled a little, "You were just getting them back."
Tessa smiled, and she nodded, and forgot that she’d ever doubted their actions. She wasn’t a kid anymore. Kitty and Alek were strong, and stood up for themselves, and Tessa had just done the same. Right?
She shifted forward a little, kissing Alek before any doubt could take hold. Alek smiled against her lips, and Tessa relaxed, smiling back.

Time passed, and they were pressed together, still kissing. Tessa’s mind was blank, and she was happy. Calm. She felt… wanted. Special.
Then, Alek rolled her over, and he was in between her legs. She felt… something through the fabric barrier between them.
Suddenly she came rushing back into her mind, and panic hit her. What was she doing? Rolling around in the grass with some guy she barely knew? She was fifteen, right? That was… this was…
"Hey hey," Alek said, and Tessa realised she’d frozen in his arms, "What?"
"I just…" Tessa said, and she tried to relax but she could feel him pressing and she had no idea what this was.
"No, hey, that’s cool," Alek said, and then he smiled, and rolled off. Tessa was left feeling cold and embarrassed, but relieved.
"I uh," Tessa began, even though she had no idea what to say.
Alek huffed a little under his breath, then pulled her back on top of her in a more innocent position. They kissed again.

Tessa’s mind seemed to empty as she pulled close to Alek, and thoughts of her brother, the burned temple were soon gone.
Alek didn’t say anything. He kissed her again, and it was surreal. The moon was out, and it was sort of cold, but the wool of his sweater was surprisingly soft.
The tumbled onto the grass, in front of the tent, and kissed.
