Watching the girl was not entertaining in the slightest, Masi thought to himself as he closed his eyes to rest. Sure she was shapely, but she had no assets, and her mostly futile efforts to start a fire did little to impress him. Not only that, it was starting to get dark and he did not want to watch the sunset. His parents used to say that watching the sunset would ruin his eyes and while he doubted it, he did not want to test out that particular information. Therefore, he was astounded as he heard her shout in triumph. He quickly opened his eyes to look at the direction of the girl's voice and sure enough, a small glow of a fire was held in her cupped hands. Only then did he noticed her tattoo glow, or more particularly, how strong the glow was. It was the second brightest light next to the flame and as they were in a clearing, it stood out here more then a white flower in a wasteland. His curious thoughts quickly went to his own tattoo and while they glowed, it was a faint blue that only served to illuminate the number on his arm. It would be easy to hide, Masi thought to himself with a relieved smile and turned back to the girl. Although he spotted no wildlife, he was sure that at least some existed, and the dim glow would make his presence to them less obvious, resulting in an easier hunt.

"I'm impressed, but more importantly, I'm confounded on how you just started that fire. Perhaps.... plants burn more easily here." he laid, laying down on the piles of leaves while his mental voice screeched at him.
How was she able to create a fire? Where did she get that stick? How did she force the stick into the grass pile without something to push the stick from the top? Why would she need to place a fruit over a fire to eat it? Silly questions and theories appeared in his head, and he laughed loudly at the mental image of the girl taking out a wand and pointing it to the grass to make it burn.

"Glowing tattoos, night sky, And here I'm still thinking that normal logic works! I wouldn't be surprised if a dragon from the old comes flying above us, with his flame breath creating a sun in the distance." A simple quip, but he carefully observed her reactions. Seeing nothing however, Masi shrugged to himself and decided to trash the theory. No point in being silly. Certainly there are rules, just not in the most logical sense.
Turning one of the banana leaves into a make shift blanket, he propped his head on his arms and laid on more leaves to get some sleep. He had ate before this entire journey, but three hours of walking around would tire someone out and he needed his rest more then food right now. He was calm about his tattoo, knowing that the banana leaf over him would hide it from any observers, but did that matter when they both were illuminated by her impromptu campfire?

"Be careful that you do not start a bush fire." he spoke after a moment's rest. "I'm going back to sleep. Wake me up when you are about to sleep. Basic survival technique. Perhaps I'm being paranoid, but i can't help but feel that this land is not looking for our best interest."
