In the Darkness of the NightPairing: Tenten X NejiCategory: Angst/Comfort/RomanceWords: 2,407Rating: TIn the Darkness of the NightFaces.They were everywhere around me. Mostly unclear, like shadows, but a few were so vivid I could do nothing but stare. And then I screamed.Sitting bolt upright, the scream came out of me until I recognized my bedroom. My curtains. My dresser. Everything around me was familiar but I couldn't stop the shaking.My palms and face were dripping with sweat. It was hard to breath. Air was only slowly getting into me by the gasping deep breaths I was trying to make.Those faces. I could still see those faces even now that I was wide awake. Which were more frightening, the clear ones or the shadowy ones, I didn't know.Once I was breathing somewhat normally, I got out of bed. The blackness outside my window meant it was still a far cry from morning. And crying was exactly what I was trying not to do. Grabbing my robe to fight the chill of the fall night, I went to the kitchen.
