(living room/dining room)

Asha and Alex sat barefoot and crosslegged on the floor in Asha's loft, some time around seven in the morning.

Asha had dropped by La Maison Du Café a little earlier, just as Alex finished her shift and offered to drive the honey blonde home. Much to her surprise though, Alexandra suggested they'd head out for some breakfast and coffee.

Asha was so absorbed into their conversation that she hadn't realized where she was driving until she pulled up in front of her own apartment. It was too late to turn around so the red headed elder had decided to throw caution to the wind. If anything, it was Alex that should have protested but the human was oddly at ease.

By the time the sun came up, the two of them had been sitting there for hours, talking about anything and everything that would came to their minds.

"Are you still having nightmares?" Asha wondered as she took hold of Alex's hands. The honey-blonde averted her gaze briefly before nodding.

"It's not just the nightmares Asha, it's like he's possessing my every thought, like I can't get away from him..." one of her hands subconsciously moved to cover the spot where the bruise had been. Though it wasn't visible under the thick layers of concealer, it was still sore and sensitive to the touch.

Alex winced as she laid her palm flat against the bruised area as if her hand could protect her somehow, or detach the bruised flesh from her and cast it far away where she would no longer feel it. but alas, Alexandra knew that wasn't possible.

The redheaded vampire shifted from across the blonde, pulling her into a tight hug.
"It's okay Lex, soon he won't bother you or anyone else ever again" Asha soothed as she smoothed down Alex's silk golden curls.
