For #LineByLineTime : “Disgust”
“Firestarter stick,” Luthor replied. “Magnesium and flint.” The gadget went back into one of his pockets. He carefully arranged some small logs on the growing fire before he stood up and dusted off his hands. “Now to prepare that rattlesnake. The wood should burn down to coals soon.”
“I’m still not eating any nasty snake meat,” Nita declared. The other three turned but could not see her. Her voice came from above them. They backed up until they could see her as she swept the horizon with Luthor’s binoculars while laying flat on her stomach on the flat top of the rock they had stopped at.
“More for us,” Luthor said with a shrug, as he had before. “I just think we need to stretch our supplies as long as we can.” He looked at Harper and Minji, frowning. “Just occurred to me, though. Do any of you have food with you, like sandwiches or such, that might spoil? We might need to eat it with the rattlesnake, so it doesn’t go bad.”
“I’ve got a couple of sandwiches, so I still don’t need snake!” Nita hissed quietly from her perch.
