@dragonsparking @aqua03 @ProjectMyst @alliascompany (Sorry for not being active today, but I spent the afternoon at a friend's birthday party and now I'm exhausted, so I'm heading to bed earlier. See ya tomorrow!) (Also Dry and Sparkle is my new OTP, they are just too cute together )
Shade fell in most of Mimic's traps that included being zapped, soaked and many other things, even having some buckets of chicken nuggets falling over him. After such embarrasement he decided to go back to the Watcher and forget about it. Not like he could beat Mimic either way.
So now he was walking towards his room, still feeling of chicken nuggets after three showers.
"Chicken nugget?" Flare's voice could be heard when he walked past her bedroom.
"What?" Shade opened the door slightly and poked his head. Flare sat in her bed with a jump, surprised by him appearing.
"No! I wasn't meaning to call you, I just thought I was smelling chicken nuggets and I got surprised, that's it" she said sincerely. Though she was looking better her eyes still were a bit red and puffy.
"Are you okay?" He asked, getting closer to check her.
She nodded. "I am now... It's just that, all the stuff that happened today made me think that this is not just a game" she said, her voice shaking a bit. "There are lifes at stake at every moment, including ours. I don't want to loose any of you" she confessed, referring to the travelers.
Shade sighed and sat at her side, putting an arm over Flare to comfort her. She leaned in his fluff. "You won't, we're not going to do down so easily. But the risk is always there" he told her. "With love comes a great loss, always. So be glad you care for someone enough that you are afraid to loose them. Let it be a strenght, a motivation, not a weakness".
Some soft snoring stopped his talking, Flare had fallen asleep with his soft wool. Shade smiled softly and put her back in her bed, kissing her forehead before he left. "Goodnight, mro nuilen" he said as he closed the door on the way out, ready for a well deserved rest.
