The two of them have been making out for a long time. To them, it seemed like there was just the two of them, and it was feeling so intense, so amazing.
He was holding her as tight as possible, feeling their bodies caressing each other at every kiss.
“So, what happens next?” he asked.
She chuckled. Another kiss. “I don’t know, what if we find that out?” she asked back. Another kiss.
He stopped for a few moments, admiring her features. “You’re so beautiful.” She blushed again, and kissed him again.
“How can someone be this beautiful, Acorn?” he asked, stroking her face.
As they kept making out, however, she laughed, then pulled back her head. “Wait,” she said.
He was confused, but she caressed his face, still laughing.
“Do you know why they call me Acorn?” she asked. He frowned his head.
So, out of curiosity, he decided to ask. “Why do they call you Acorn?”
As he waited for an answer, he caressed her body. He was ready for hours and hours of moments like that one.
Her eyes widened. Then, she started giggling quietly to herself. She had a cute laugh, and he was going for another kiss.
However, before their lips could touch, she popped like a bubble.
He widened his eyes, out of confusion. She was not there anymore. Yet, as he looked down, he noticed something. It was an acorn, so he picked it up.
“What is…” he started saying, before realising it. “Oh my, I’ve been making out with an acorn this whole time!” he exclaimed, before laughing so loudly he got everyone else’s attention.
“Well, that is so funny, because…” he started saying, as he too popped like a bubble, revealing that he was an acorn as well.
Then, they were close to each other, even in acorn form, as the Sun was rising. They were all alone together, and it felt so good.
Suddenly, they both burst into laughter.
“What is going on?” he asked.
She giggled. Then, finally, she answered him.
“It’s an acorns and rainbows joke.”
He looked at her, puzzled. “What kind of joke is that?”
She, however, did not reply. Acorns are seeds. She laughed again, as the two of them continued to make out in the jungle.
Acorns. Silly and fun.
How did something like that happen? Even the monkeys stopped swinging around, scratching their heads as the parrots were chanting songs about rainbows and giggles.
“Tell me more about that joke,” he asked her, as he held her hand tightly.
“Well, much like rainbows, we can make every colourful thing happen.”
“I see,” he said. Then, a tiger picked them up, putting them in its back. “Now, let’s ride away!” they both said. They held hands as they ran through the jungle.
No one else in the animal kingdom gets this joke. Everyone else looks at them with confusion, or giggles. But not them.
