You’re eyes shoot open to see nothing but the darkness of your room. Rubbing your eyes you kick the blankets off your trembling body. “Calm down [Name] it was just a dream, its just a dream” you find yourself repeating over and over. After catching your breath, you slowly stand. Grabbing a blanket to shroud yourself in, you make your way down stairs. ‘Just get some water and go back to bed’ you thought.
Finally reaching the end of the staircase you hear the sound of your TV. Slowly rounding the corner you find your matesprit, Cronus on the couch nodding off to his favorite movie; Grease. Tightening the hold of your blanket, you make your way to the kitchen in hopes of not waking him... Failing to do so.... you accidentally drop your glass, shattering it on the floor. Jolting awake he turns to you. “[Name] you okay?!” “I-I’m fine Cronus, I’m sorry I woke you” You whisper almost too quietly. Noticing your shaking figure he walks over to you. “What’s wrong?” You see the worry in his tired eyes, you reach out, embracing the violet blood. His eyes widen slightly before relaxing again, leaning down his frame engulfs your own.“‘nother bad dream huh?” Burying your head into his chest you nod.
Slowly he leads you back to the couch where he sits, pulling you into his lap. “It’s okay, I've got ya.” he whispers, lazily kissing your forehead. A smile playing across your lips you rest your head in the crook of his neck, arms wrapping around his strong torso you relax. The warmth traveling from his body to yours is gentle and welcoming, as you inhale the salt water scent you've grown to love you yawn. The slight flicker of his fins tickling your cheek, your eyelids grow heavy. “You always know how to make me feel better, Cronus.” With your exhaustion taking over, you slip into a light slumber.
“I’ll always be here...whenever you need me, I promise” Lightly kissing your head he reaches of the remote and turns off the TV. Making the room pitch black and silent. Slowly giving in to sleep he mutters softly.
“Flushed for you [Name].”
