Night Terrors And The Joy They Bring

Post by Athy on Thu Mar 09, 2017 11:17 am

For all of his life Glitch could remember the night terrors that haunted him in his dreams. They had kept him awake at night as a child. Though they drifted and faded. It wasn't until he had moved into the twins house that they had become a regular occurrence.

​It had started out as once a month, then once a week. Now it was nightly. Each night he had sent the twins away, said it was fine. But tonight he was so tired, he had woken up screaming...again.

Jiyong sat on the bed beside him, "will you tell us what is haunting you so badly?" He asked as he handed Glitch a cold bottle of water.

"You know..." Glitch said through his tears, as he sipped the water shakily, "sometimes it's just so hard to process all the things that I see. I can't make sense of them. I have a twin in it. We are so cute but everyone is scared of us so they stick us in a tower. Then I hear him crying because dead bodies. Every day. They rain on us and he climbs them to find me. But he never makes it. This lady came and she offers us a deal. But one of us has to die. I die for him. To save him." He said and wiped his eyes, but it didn't help. He started to sob.

Jiyong looked at Taeyang who nodded and left the room quietly. Jiyong rubbed Glitch's back and held him. "I know of this story, it is not a story. More of a legend."

Taeyang knew he could call this number any hour of any day and get an answer, without the recipient being cross. He unlocked his phone and dialled Yuui. As he put the handset to ear he pinched his nose and tried to hold back his tears.​

It was night and so Yuui was awake. Vampire thing, after all. Though the sun didn't do him much harm at this point. He was far too old for it to bother him as it once had. Still, he was almost always awake. His phone was not on him, though. It was sitting on a table. But he heard the melodic sound of the ringtone and picked it up. He didn't always answer depending on who was calling but this was one being he didn't mind hearing from. "Good evening," he said in his cheerful, carefree fashion as he answered the phone.

"How fast can you get here?" Taeyang asked, he didn't say who it was. He didn't even ask how he was. This was an emergency and he wasn't going to leave it long. Not for Glitch. Not even for Yuui. He could hear the poor boy sobbing and not understanding. He couldn't stand it.

Yuui was not fazed by it being an emergency even if he could tell that it was since Taeyang was skipping all the pleasantries. "I am not very close to your house," he said. "But....if I travel by wind then I can be there in...oh...possibly twenty minutes." He'd have to go very fast.

"Try and be faster if you can...you're going to want to be here." Tae said, he hated that he had skipped pleasantries. "I'll be waiting outside." He said and hung out so that Yuui could get moving and he did just that. He opened the front door, closed it behind him and waited on the doorstep.

"Well that was cryptic..." Yuui commented once the call had ended. He wrote a little note to Wall and sent it off as a little bird origami to let him know that he'd essentially been summoned by Zekrom. Then he took flight and summoned one of the four great winds of the world to help carry him faster to Unova and as close to Taeyang's home as he could be.

He lightly landed outside the house and folded his wings against his back and looked for Taeyang. He was right there. "Hello," he said cheerfully. "What's the big emergency?"

"You need to come and see for yourself, Yuui." Taeyang said sadly and opened the door, "you may want to tone yourself down though because it's about to get all kinds of heavy up in here."

By this point, Glitch was on the sofa, he had a cup of tea in his hands and a blanket and Ji was sat next to him, "Yuui, it's so wonderful to see you I am sorry it could not have been at a better hour. Well I guess for you this is perfect, hm?"

Glitch paused then, because Jiyong had warned him that Tae was bringing someone who could help him with his dreams. He looked at Yuui with wide eyes that filled with tears. "I have been dying for you in my dreams since I was a little boy," he croaked out.

Yuui wasn't sure how to tone it down. He was hardly ever serious. He wore his mask so well. It was second nature really. He didn't exactly want to drop it. But he wasn't sure what he was walking into either when he saw the teenager on the couch.

"Oh...well that's unfortunate," Yuui said, completely thrown off by the teen saying that. "What's going on now?" he asked the twins. "I'm so lost."

"It appears that Glitch here, has been dreaming of you since he was a very small boy." Jiyong said, because he didn't think Glitch could manage right now. "He has very vivid dreams, memory like almost, of him as a boy trapped inside a tower and sacrificing himself for his brother."

"That brother, obviously being you. Yuui, I am not sorry to tell you that I am pretty sure that Glitch is..." Taeyang looked over.

"Fai." Glitch said before Taeyang could. "That's what you called me. Fai."

"That's not..." Yuui was shocked. "That's not possible..." he said weakly. But he knew that wasn't true. There was such a thing as reincarnation. He knew that. But he had let Fai go a long time ago, been forced to. How could he be back now?

"I don't lie," Glitch said then, feeling defensive.

But Taeyang cut it off, before Glitch went too far. He was shaken and he was confused as well. "You're both going to need time to process this information. But know that Glitch is right, he doesn't lie. He couldn't make up the things he told us, Yuui..."

Jiyong nodded, "how can we help you guys figure this out?" He asked, looking between them both. perhaps they just needed time to talk it out.

"I'm not saying that you're lying. I'm not saying that he's lying," Yuui said, first to Glitch and then to the twins. It wasn't that. He just didn't understand. Even if Fai had been reincarnated to the teenager, why was he still haunted by their curse? Why have those terrible memories still?

He couldn't answer them. He didn't know how they could help. He didn't know if he could be helped. Fai had always been his weakness, his trigger for the darkness he carried to lose control. And he couldn't lose control. Yuui had enough power inside him to absolutely destroy an entire kingdom, if not more than one, if he ever lost the grip he had on his darkness and sanity. He covered his face with his hands but that didn't stop the tears from overflowing from his eyes.

Both the dragon twins stared at each other, unsure of what they should do. They didn't get a chance to do anything about it though.

Because Glitch got up and walked over to Yuui, he just hugged him. "I'm sorry that I hurt you."

"It's not your fault," Yuui said. It felt so strange to be hugged by Glitch. He was a stranger but at the same time, he sort of wasn't either. It was very confusing. But either way, it wasn't Glitch's fault that Yuui was hurting.

"I know you feel like you don't know me, but you do." Glitch said, he didn't know when he felt his brain just decide what and when. But it did. "I know who I am. I think I've always known I just didn't understand."

"Kinda makes sense that's he's the master of ghosts now..." Taeyang said quietly to his brother who shook his head.

Show some tact.

Yuui only winced. Master of Ghosts, like that was a good thing for his brother to be. "I wish you didn't know me." He was furious that Fai was still haunted by their life. There had been no happiness in his time alive. There had been nothing but pain. Why should he still know those things? Why should they still be there?

"I am very glad I do," Glitch said, he didn't really want to forget something like that. "I chose to die for you to give you life. You're special. Dumbass."

"I should smack you for that," Yuui said. He wasn't in the least bit happy that his brother had chosen to die so that he could be free. But he also hated the one that had forced such a choice on them.

"No, you should thank me for it." Glitch sassed but then he just shrugged. "I'm a rockstar now. And I still have you."

"Do you?" Yuui asked. Fai, his most important person, his other half, had missed out on all of his life except for the worst parts. Yuui had never fully recovered from losing his twin, nor gotten over the guilt of Fai having to make that choice in the first place.

Maybe Fai could pick up where they had left off easily but it wasn't so simple for Yuui. Still, he couldn't deny the guy either. He didn't have the heart to do that. "I suppose you do," he said quietly.

That stung and Glitch tried to hide it but, he was still young so the wince still showed for a moment. "Whenever you're ready."

"I'm sorry. I mean that...I know you and you know me, but not really," Yuui said. "Not as we are now." Glitch was the Master of Spirits. A rock star. A teenager that lived with the dragon twins because presumably he had no other family.

"We can figure it out. I know of you, the twins have spoken fondly of you. They told me you were a good role model for Nel. For me. Because we have darkness we don't understand, I have it from a life so long ago and I'm still young. It's hard to keep it chill. They were going to ask you to help me," Glitch said and looked to the dragons who nodded.

"before this arose, yes. Even so I thinks it's a good way for you guys to bond." the twins said, but they looked at Yuui then. "We will all be moving to the manor soon and I won't be leaving him behind."

"Well it would be rather awful of you to just leave him here after taking him in," Yuui said. "Or did you mean something else?" Because at this point, he was never really sure when it came to them. He wasn't surprised they thought of him when it came to helping others tame their darkness.

"We are saying if you need time to think about it, you have it." The twins said.

Glitch just let them talk. "I would like to see valeria, when you're ready to take me."
