Character Quotes from Alton & Velda ~ A Fantasy by Dellani Oakes

They traveled several miles below the rapids before Velda handed her pack to Alton. With a kiss, she stepped into the water, calling out a greeting. The waves and ripples circled her, chattering happily. One last smile at Alton and she dove in.

“We’ll continue on foot,” Alton said, gazing at the sky. “We have another hour or two before it gets too dark for you to see.”

“Can you see in the dark?”

He smiled. “Day or night, light or darkness, I see the same.”

“What else can you do?”

“Many things. You’d think me bragging if I told you all.”

“How old are you?” she asked unexpectedly.

“Far older than I look. I was a full grown man before you were born. In fact, before your parents were born.”

“How long have you and Velda been together?”

“Nearly a decade.”

“That’s a long time to be without your family,” she mused.

“It is. Though we have one another.”

“Is that enough? Revanth and I have one another, but sometimes—I still long for my family.”

Alton nodded, holding a tree branch out of her way. “I miss mine every day.”
