"What time is it?" Eva asked sleepily.
"5 am," he said. "Come on, I have a surprise for you."
"Why?" Eva asked, wincing and trying to burrow under the blankets.
"I wanted to show you something,"
Eva sighed. "If I have to be up right now I can think of only one thing I want to do..."
Eva yawned. "I could go back to sleep," she said contentedly.
Nathaniel smacked her on the backside. "No! Come on! Get up!" he said as he hopped out of bed.
"It's a surprise. Dress comfortably, wear boots!"
"Boots?" she asked as he hurriedly dressed as bounded from the room. "On my honeymoon?"
"Come on! Daylights wasting!" he called back to her.
Nathaniel laughed. "Has anyone ever told you that you're persistent?"
"Come on!" he called back to her.
"I'll show you," Nathaniel said, pulling out the gear.
"Now we just wait," he said with a grin.
Nathaniel scowled at the water. "Typically you can inspect the water, but I seem to be having trouble with it right now. Maybe we should check out another spot on the..."
"Oh wait! I'm getting something! It's tugging! What do I do?!" she shrieked. "Omigod! Omigod!"
Nathaniel laughed, "Just reel it in! Steady!"
Nathaniel grumbled. "Beginner's luck!"
He rolled his eyes. "I would've caught something if you hadn't been yelling and screaming so much!" he teased.
"Careful or I won't share with you!" she said as she slipped a piece of the fish meat on the stick to hold over the fire. Thankfully Nathaniel had cleaned up the fish for her, so she didn't have to deal with the yucky stuff.
Eva laughed. "I think it's time for sleep!"
Nathaniel raised an eyebrow. "I think we should zip our sleeping bags together," he suggested wickedly, pulling her into his arms.
Eva giggled as she raced into the tent. "Be sure to close the flap!" she called as she threw her shirt through the opening.
