You huddle up at the foot of the bed, clutching yourself and unable to stop shaking. You wan't to cry, you've never been this scared from any of your nightmares before and it leaves you wanting to cry. It takes everything you have to hold it all back and only let out choked whimpers and soft whines.
Your head hurts, your chest feels as if it's imploding upon itself, it hurts so much. Your breath quickens.
You don't know anything about that name, you don't know where it came from. But just thinking of it rouses a sudden jab of anger from something deep inside of you. It sounds so familiar, as if you should know, but you don't. The more you try to think, the more you toss it about in your head, the more you hurt. Your head is throbbing, as if someone went to town on your skull with a sledgehammer, your chest is beating and hurting. You can't help how you claw at your own flesh as if to alleviate the pain, to find the source and tear it out.
The dream won't leave your mind. The words, the way your skin crawled. Little Star. Nyx. Death. It felt so real. To real.
Nyx... Nyx... Nyx...
You feel hands on your shoulders, you hear a twisted laughter, one that terrifies you more than anything ever had.
Tears are running down your face as your eyes burn. You need to run, get out of here, get somewhere safe, but where's safe? It'll find you no matter where you run, it found you here, on a different planet, it followed you across space, it'll follow you no matter what. You can't run, you can't- you have to.
It's fingers tighten on your shoulders, it shakes you roughly as it hisses in your ears.
"Kaz! Wake up"
Zyra & Soren ==> You most definitely did not sleep through his scream, wake up and comfort yo boy.
You snap back to reality, the foriegn hands on your body reveal to be Zyra and Soren who crouch behind you. You don't need to look at them, you can feel their concern just from their touch. You're faintly aware of someone a few bunks away yelling for you all to shut up.
Zyra: Kaz, are you with us?
Soren: You okay, man?
Soren: Please say something
Kazel: I'm here... I'm safe... right?
Your heart slows down, your pulse calming as you begin to feel safety in their presence, in the familiarity of the barracks. Your home, you're in Drakken Tor. You're safe here, nothing can hurt you, not here, not with them.
Zyra: You're safe, it's okay.
Zyra: Was it a nightmare? Do you want to talk?
Kazel: Not really... I don't... not now.
Soren: Come on.
Soren wrestles you into his law, wrapping his arms around you as Zyra sidles up beside you, an arm draped around your shoulder as they both hold you close while seated on the bed. You can feel their breathing against your skin, their hearts beating. It's comforting, it's calming. They're warm, they're safe.
Zyra: Just keep breathing, Kaz.
Zyra: We're here if you need anything.
There's still tears in your eyes and on your cheeks, Zyra nuzzles against your face and gives you a kiss on a tear streaked cheek while Soren's soft breathing tickles at the back of your neck. You'll feel guilty later for this, for waking them up when there was a mission in the morning, for making them do this to calm you down. But for now, you'll let yourself have this.
