The tap on Edell’s shoulder surprised her, but it didn’t pulse fear though her. The hand that touched her hand didn’t leave her in fear, either. It wasn’t pleasant to be touched, but it wasn’t terrifying.
Yosh’s words came out as a blur in Edell’s mind, but he slowly pieced them together. Her body continued to hurt, and her head continued to spin, and her thoughts started only to be restarted again and again every time she lost track.
"Can’t… not ye…"
Edell was only able to get so much out, before her voice was faded out by a rush of exhaustion. The cloudiness in her head began to fade, and she was able to grasp a small thread of thought. Her head was spinning too much to concentrate too much on the previous problem at hand with Yosh, and her body began to let up after the weight of the fear lifted slightly. Her balance was off, and her vision was undulating and bright, but the terrible feeling was starting to wear off.
She gripped at the floor with her other hand, and clutched tightly onto the carpet. She could feel it. She kept her hold on it, to try to get her senses back to normal.
The girl only could watch the other one suffer and that made her cry a bit more than she already was. ‘’ E-Edell! Edell! P-Please…! B-Breathes calmly! ‘’ she begged with a high pitched voice. Her second hand quickly let go of the hand she was caressing to go to the other shoulder. ‘’ E-Edell! ‘’ She let out when she tried to speak.
Really, Yosh was despicable. She only wanted help but it was probably too big of a problem for poor gentle Edell. ‘’ Heey! Edell! I-I’m the one with cataplexy! D-Don’t faint on m-me! ‘’ Yossua let out, like if it was a little joke. Maybe, just maybe, Edell would feel better.
Edell’s chest suddenly tightened up and squeezed. Her body immediately began to scream disfavor of the situation, and the rushing urge to leave, right now, intruded in.
"It’s… This isn’t some strange dream you had, right..?
It was returning, happening again. Edell had lost her grasp on the situation, and herself. She couldn’t hold back the frightening urges to give into fear. She had become a coward, once again.
Her eyes started to blur up, and she realized that her breathing was uneven rather late. A painful numbness spread through herself, which felt like it was choking at her throat. Edell though that she had said "Hold on" to the other, but even she wasn’t exactly sure. She knelt down on the floor. That’s right, sit down… make sure you’re safe… you have to keep your…grasp… keep… keep what…?
Maybe it was all a dream. Nothing seemed real, anyway. And it didn’t make sense how Edell was suddenly a girl. Maybe nothing’s real right now. Just a terrible dream. Edell sat still on her knees, her hand holding her head. Her vision was flashing as if he was going to faint, and he felt like he couldn’t do anything but sit. Eventually it’ll go away. And she’ll wake up, right?
No matter how many times Edell tried to convince herself, the realness of the fear and pain in her chest simply screamed at her that it wasn’t so.
She just wanted to help.
Being told it might be one of her strange dreams, Yossua lowered her head and lowered one of her socks to show some bloodied bandages. ‘’ … I-I wish… ‘’ She breathes out, hitting her head on her knee to take control back a bit.
She simply closed her eyes, wishing it was a dream as well when she heard Edell breathing. The girl lowered her leg and looked at the pale head in front of her. She quickly stood up before her legs made her fall on her knees and touched the girl’s shoulder. ‘’ I-I’m sorry… I-I didn’t meant to make you feel this bad…. ‘’ she said, trying to ignore the growing pain of her legs that was holding her in this position. ‘’ H-Hey, lie down on your bed o-ok? ‘’ She said slowly petting one of her hand that was on her head.
" I’ll definitely consider it! After not getting much choice my whole life, I’m really willing to try anything.. "
> You laugh quietly and nervously, quickly attempting to keep from remembering some unwanted memories.
> You let out a more relaxed giggle at her sudden flush of bright red across her cheeks.
" I’m glad you have the opportunity then! Also, no need to thank me. I’m just saying what should be said. "
” I-I see… I’m sorry you didn’t have that liberty to have choices… ” she said, playing with the frills of her dress once again. She felt bad for the other girl.
The brunette blinked when the noirette giggled. She touched her burning cheeks to understand what was going on and tried to cover it before hearing her voice that calmed her a lot. ” T-Thanks… ” She let out. ” T-That’s extremely nice of you… ” she continued, taking a small bite of the cake. It was true! The cake was delicious, it almost felt like heaven. ” W-Woah… ” Yossua, or should we say Victoria, exclaimed calmly. ” I agree, this cake is… truly delicious… ”
[ The mun is horribly sick and apologize if she respond slowly and with mistakes! ]
⊰ ✿ ⊱ “Then if you go somewhere warm, does that mean they won’t hurt?”
”They’ll… hurt less… ” he admitted.
⊰ ✿ ⊱ “I’ll carry you out into the backyard!”
” I-I don’t think it’s a good idea to sit in the snow when the cold is what made my legs hurt! ”
"Trust me, I know great cooking talent when I taste it. You’ve really got it." He said with a smile, scooting a bit closer to him. "Don’t worry about it. This’ll be enough for now. Even a small amount is better than nothing, after all."
” A-ah… Do I…? ” he felt like he was repeating. ” I-I don’t know, it just… taste like food… ” he finally let out. He basically never cooked before not so long ago, it was weird being complimented on something he never practice doing. ” Mhm… I’ll try not to worry. ” The brunette said with a low voice, nodding gently. ” What you said is true but I still… feel a bit bad about it…” he admitted, smiling.
”My legs still burns but I want to sit in snow…. ”
”H-Happy birthday. ”
A-Ah Yosh! [Her cheeks warmed up as she was OBVIOUSLY surprised by the kiss.] Thanks…!
” I-I made a cake… ”
… [Staring down at the cake, back up at Yosh, down at the cake, back up to Yosh with tears in her eyes] R-Really…??
” O-Of course! I don’t know your favorite flavour so I made it maple! I work well with Maple! ”
