"No…" You hear yourself mumble.
Not again…Not another nightmare.
“Stop…No.” You’re screaming now.
“NO!” You try and wake yourself up, these are getting out of control, and you can’t stop them. All of a sudden you hear another voice.
Who’s that? What’s happening?
“(Y/n) wake up!” The voice is closer, and someone is shaking you now. Finally your eyes snap open and you sit up. Tears are still rolling down your cheeks and you’re shaking. You look over, Michael, your best friend, is standing beside you. Without thinking you throw yourself into his arms and start to cry once again.
“It’s okay.. You’re okay. What happened?”
You just shake your head. “I don’t wanna talk about it.” You rub your temples after you finish, your head is pounding. He gives you a nod, “stay right here. I’ll be right back.”
He comes back with a glass of water and some aspirin. He hands you the glass and sets the medicine on the beside table. He raises up the blankets and sits down beside you.
“You sure you don’t wanna talk?” He asks, wiping the tears from your face.
“Well.. I guess.” You sigh. You hesitate.. But then tell him everything. “…. And they won’t stop. I don’t know what to do.”
He nods, and without saying anything he takes your hand. He pulls you to the bathroom, wets a towel, and wipes your face. He then goes and gets your water and aspirin and tells you to take them. “Now come with me.” He walks down stairs and to the living room. He turns on the light and finds the remote. “Why don’t you lay on the couch? I’ll find something decent to watch.” You do as he says.
After about 5 minutes of searching, Michael finally finds a movie. He grabs a blanket from the chair across the room, and lays it across you. He sits down on the floor in front of you after turning off the light.
“Are you still awake?” Michael asks. You hadn’t realized that the movie he picked was already over.
“Yeah..” You mumble. “I can’t fall back asleep.”
He frowns, looking at the clock. “It’s 3 in the morning, you need to get some sleep.”
You shrug and turn over on your back.
He stands up and looks down at you, “c’mon.” He says, picking you up and carrying you back to your room. He lays you down and you crawl under the covers. He turns off your light, then he does something you don’t expect. He tells you to move over, and he crawls in beside you. He wraps an arm around you and yawns. “I’ll be right here until you do.”
You can’t help but smile like an idiot. You turn over to face him.
“Thank you, Michael. For all of this.. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”
He gives you a smile that melts your heart. “Anything for you. I’m always here for you. Always.” He moves a piece of hair from your face, you lean toward him and kiss his nose. Then you snuggle into his chest.
“Hey.” He whispers. You lift your head up and look at him. He leans down and kisses you softly. Once you pull away, he wraps you into his arms and moves you as close to him as you can possibly get.
“I love you. Sleep tight.” Besides that, the last thing you hear is him singing softly in your ear, before you finally drift off to sleep.
