Warnings: First thing I wrote in awhile. >.> Cutting it down to 100 words took a little
time. It was 113 words when first written. No spoilers really. This written yesterday but
fixed up today so missed the #17 dream Challenge.
Gently you rest, curling in my lap, so small and delicate.
Your brow is not furrowed this time. The soft, slow breath
of slumber stirs the quiet as I shift my hand through your short hair,
black silk to my rough fingers. Breath mixes, yours, mine.
I watch you as it’s the nature of the dog to watch over his master.
I always do even if you don't want me to, because this is the time you
let me get close. You spun a dream in my head that I can't let go.
Nothing matters, Akito-san. Nothing matters but that.
