The Wild's God: Hallowed Blues 4

Length: 57 pages47 minutes



Javier's second fall to the sacred cenote hastens him to his true self, that of a godling. He is discovering everything anew. He is most curious about his distance from what used to govern him when he was human — emotions.

Unlike his first awakening, he remembers everything now with crystal-clear clarity. He remembers every emotion that went with each memory and each person he's ever known. But there is the human female, the beautiful Camila. As he helps her and her companions survive the jungle on their quest to get back to civilization in the aftermath of the hurricane, hidden in the shadows, he is reminded of everything they had shared when he was human, and feeling.

In him is a curious desire. He wants good things for her. He wants her to be happy, most of all.

And he did what he should do — let her go back to a home she has always wanted to come back to. Even if it means she will leave Mexico and the jungle.

Meanwhile, he is on his own journey of awakening. And he wonders if he can also leave his jungle to explore and find... what?

INCREDIBLY ENOUGH, they all fell asleep... only to be awakened by great, fat drops of rain falling onto their faces.

“Huh, I guess the jungle does listen,” Drew said.

Camila was already wrapping leaves into cones the way Drew had done the day before. Now that they were no longer under the thick foliage of the jungle, they got drenched quickly. And it wasn’t long before they all pressed against each other, back-to-back, trying to stay warm and collect as much water as they could.

The rain tasted metallic and warm, but it was liquid, and they were parched.

They stayed where they were while the rain poured down around them, drinking as soon as they managed to collect a full “cup” of water, even though they were no longer thirsty. Even though Camila didn’t think their bodies could actually hold onto the water – they were not camels, after all; and even though Drew confirmed to her that short of catching and recycling their sweat and the moisture they lost through breathing (the water would just pass out of them), she still felt compelled to drink. Feast and famine, she thought, as she drank down her third cup.

And then she saw him – Javier, standing on the road. She started and then scrambled to her feet to run to him. She didn’t know what she would say or do once she reached him but the long grass hid tough tendrils, and her foot got caught in one, and she fell.

By the time she extracted herself, he was gone again.

“Camila!” Drew shouted as he came up behind her. “What the hell do you think you’re doing?”

“I saw him,” she said. “I saw him – Javier.”

“You saw him, too?” he said.

“You mean, you also saw him?”

“I saw him,” Drew said. “I didn’t want to believe it. I was afraid he was going to try to kill you, but I couldn’t be sure he was real.”

Camila shook her head. “He won’t kill me,” she said.

“I wouldn’t be so sure,” Sam said.
