Demons

I scream in surprise, dropping the box. The blades clatter into the sink, the sound echoing through the bathroom.
"What are you doing?" he asks again, his voice laced with worry. He comes over to me, and I turn my back to him, not wanting him to see me cry. Tears prick my eyes, and I let out a shaky breath. "Eve." I don't respond. He sighs softly after a moment and taps my shoulder. "Here." To my surprise, he hands me my box, the two blades inside. Taking the box from him, I close the lid before turning around. "I know you want it as a sort of security. I'm trusting you not to use them, though," he says softly, touching my face to make me look at him. A tear falls down my cheek, and he brushes it away.
"Why do you..." I trail off, and he bites his lip. My eyes widen in realization. "Adam," I whisper, another tear falling down my cheek.
"They're untouched," he replies, his voice weak as he reaches in his pocket. He pulls out a small packet filled with pills, and my heart practically breaks in half. I want to grab them and throw them against the wall. Destroy them so they can't hurt him anymore. But I realize. I can't do that. He's trusting me not to use my blades, and I have to trust him not to take his drugs. I let out a long breath, and a tear falls to the floor.
"Adam?"
"Yeah?" He looks at me, his blue eyes glimmering.
"I'm not ready to let go of my...blades, and you're not ready to let go of your..."
"My fucking drugs. Yeah," he responds bitterly, staring at the package in his hand.
"Maybe we can do this together?"
"What do you mean?"
"When we're ready, we rid ourselves of these—these fucking—" my voice breaks, and Adam pulls me into his arms, dropping his packet on the floor. "these fucking," I breathe, tears falling from my eyes rapidly.
"Demons," Adam says softly, rubbing my back soothingly.
"Demons," I repeat, my voice thick from crying.
He kisses the top of my head before whispering, "We'll be okay."
