Chapter Twenty-Two: Nightmares

596 22 2

Kagura's POV

It was in the middle of the night. I could tell.

Dreams clouded my mind.

No... Not dreams....


Everything was red. I could feel my arms and legs. I looked down, they were covered in blood.
My white clothes were stained with my blood.
There was so much pain coursing through me. So much to were my body felt numb.

Right before my was Simon. He was being held to the wall by shackles.

I tried to move, but I couldn't. Shackles restrained my every movement.

Thud. Thud.

And then I heard another child scream, and a sickening sound of blood splattering.
The sound echoed through my ears, making me shiver.

"You're next..." A voice said.

"No..." My voice trembled. "No... No, no, no!"
I yanked on the shackles, which only caused searing pain coursing through me.
I yelped and a cold, blood covered blade was held up to my neck.
"Where should I start with you...?" The voice rang through my ears.
The person before me. It was a woman.
Her eyes were an onyx black and her hair was as dark as the night sky.

This can't be the end? Can't it?

It was a dream. All of it.
I sat straight up, alarmed.
My head pounded and my forehead was lightly coated in sweat. My heart raced. I looked over to Rogue, who looked as peaceful as ever.

What have I done?

"I'm sorry, Rogue... For making you stay here." I whispered.
I stood up, gaining slight balance and took a robe off the hook.
I opened the glass door to my balcony and stepped out and submersed myself into the chilly night.

There were not stars within the city. Everyone must've been sleeping.

"Kagura?" I heard a deep and raspy voice come from my room.
I blushed slightly, not saying anything.
Just then the door opened.

"Kagura, what are you doing out here?" Rogue looked at me gently, but he was obviously tired.
"It's nothing." I looked down at the city below.
"Are you sure?" He stepped out. "I don't believe that. Now tell me." His voice was stern.
"It's just my dreams..." I trailed off, trying to stay vague.
"Nightmares?" He stood next to me, leaning a bit on the fence of the balcony.
I widened my eyes slightly, and sighed. "Correct."
"I thought so..." He smiled slightly, but it quickly dissappeared and was replace by a genuine look of concern.
"Rogue, I'm sorry for bringing you here. Or making you stay. You should leave at dawn... And just for your own sake, don't return." My voice drowned in guilt.
I can't believe I did those things yesterday. It was so unlike me.

"Kagura. I'm willing to take that risk."
"Rogue. Please." I was pleading now.
"You and I both know it's impossible to fall in love again. Especially after everything that's happened to us in the past..." My voice became close to silent.
"Kagura, that was the past. This is the present."


"Please... Please stop trying..." My eyes were squeezed shut.

Just then he took my hands into his, pulling me close to him, and he tipped my chin up.

"Kagura. I don't care. I really don't." His voice, his eyes... They were so genuine... And gentle.

I surrender.

"Fine..." I sighed, and wrapped my arms around his neck.

You're falling... A voice inside my head whispered.

"Yes I am..." I whispered. "I am falling..."
Rogue gave a soft and genuine smile.

And honestly, looking back at it now, I don't know how this happened or why it did.

I really don't. But sometimes... There really isn't a reason for anything.

I don't know why he refuses to leave.

I don't know why he cares so much about me.

And most of all, I don't know why he's falling for me.

But do I care? No.

In the end it only makes us both happy. So why try and stop that?

I leaned in so our foreheads were brushing.

So close...

He let out a shuttering breath. Oh you idiot. I said to myself.

Sorry for the short chapter. I just needed to update
