He was glad that he could cheer ARa up. Seeing her smile and seeing how she giggled and held the bunnies definitely made him really happy. He would hold one onto his lap and then he would smirk a bit, loving how warm and soft this bunny was. He would want a pet at the apartment, but he knew that would add to his daily expenses.
He rubbed the bunny's ears and then he would see ARa taking pictures. He finished eating and would pay for the meal when they were done. Once they headed outside, he held her hand in his and would walk outside, letting her lead the way to the store.
Once they arrived, he would stay beside her, helping her look for a few things she needed. Ara had a full two baskets of things she wanted and he looked a bit surprised to see what she needed. He thought it was excessive though. Ara looked fine today as it was. His eyes followed where hers went and when he spotted the man, he shook his head [b "I'm not that calm. I mean, when those situations happen, I'm scared too. I just have gotten used to it and try not to let it take over. It's taken a lot of practice"] he told her, sighing a bit.
Once they paid for her things, Sylus would walk her back to his apartment to leave the bags. He would sit on his bed. [b "There's another place I'd like to take you to if you don't mind Ar?"] he told her, holding her hand in his and then leading her outside.
They approached a small building with double glass doors at the entrance. Inside was a few easels with different paints and supplies scattered. It was a free space to paint. Other people were there painting. He hoped Ara liked it. [b "I found you a place to paint freely"] he smiled, going over to two easels and he would stay beside her, grabbing a brush.
The cute bunnies truly cheered her up. She felt so happy that Sylus brought her here. He just knew what would cheer her up. She’d hold the bunny and pet. She saw Sylus doing the same. She giggled [b “They are, aren’t they?” ] She watched Sylus play with his ears. They were so cute. She would snap a picture of him with her phone and took a little video. She’d eat slowly and kept thinking about getting a lovely cute pet. [b “This really cheered me up.” ] Ara smiled at Sylus. They shared tiramisu together too.
[b “Thanks Sy,” ] Ara said. She’d dig her fork in and played with a little, getting nervous at the thought of going shopping, and trying out clothes. No one would see…it would be in a changeroom but it gave her anxiety just thinking about somehow somebody spotting any bruises or even the emotional turmoil that last night and yesterday brought. But, maybe there weren’t be that many people since it was the day.
Sylus…was missing a lot of things she needed. He was sweet. He understood. [b I actually would like to buy a few things.” ] She’d check her phone for places near by and saw the messages she was getting. Why she wasn’t there, if she was okay and why hadn’t she been answering. She felt overwhelmed and would quickly looked at the location and muted her phone. [b “There’s one not too far.” ] She said.
Before they left, she’d play with a bunny, adoring how cute and small one of them was. She fed it some food.
Ara would lead the way to a store near by. She bought all the stuff she needed for her skin, even masks. She even bought stuff for her hair, oil, shampoo she normally used, dry shampoo, hair curler. She had two basket full of stuff. She even would ask Sylus opinion and if he wanted anything. Ara made the purchase. She saw a man come in, and she held Sylus hand tight, feeling nervous all the sudden with a stranger around. Her mind replayed the sound of the gun off and she flinched a little. She walked outside with Sylus. [b “How do you do this…how are you so calm? How can you be so okay after that?” ]
He met her eyes and he knew it wasn't his control, but he felt responsible. If Ara wasn't at his home with him, she would have been safer and not have to live through the same trauma that he did. He would sigh and then just slowly wash up with her in the bathroom.
He would kiss her lips and then once they finished, he waited for her in the living room to get ready. He knew he didn't have much, but he really realized everything when Ara stayed over. He wanted her comfortable, but she didn't seem to be, so he would try and cheer her up with a date.
He held her hand in his, leading her outside to one of the cafes he's passed by before. With the extra cash she gave him, he could at least cheer her up. At the start she didn't seem that excited to be going on a date with him, but when she saw the bunnies and when they took a seat, he was smiling because Ara was playing with the bunnies and she was cute. He'd take a few pictures with his phone and then he would reach over and pick up a black and brown bunny when she told him to.
Sylus held the bunny on his lap and then he would pet him, running his fingers over it's fluffy fur. [b "He's so soft. He's really cute"] he chuckled and then he would play with his ears. Sylus ordered an iced coffee and and they'd share a tiramisu cake. He would grin and hold her hand in his. [b "I want you to be happy with me. Comfortable with me. If you want, we can also go shopping so you can pick up anything you need to leave at my house? I know I don't have much....but I do want to keep you safe and stay with you Ar?"] he admitted, hoping she didn't find his place or the way he lived something she would break up with him for.
Ara shrugged [b “It wasn’t within you’re control.” ] She really felt like her life was making turns she didn’t like. But what could she do when Sylus was involved into this. She’d rise up and Sylus held her in clothes in the shower. She felt him washing her skin and she noticed he was being gentle. IT made her feel good. She would kiss him back and wash him up too. She would have enjoyed this a lot more of things hadn’t gone so wrong lately.
She’d cover her bruises with her clothes, besides the slight one on her cheek she would use makeup. She couldn’t bare anyone else seeing them. She’d come out and heard Sylus’ question. She’s make herself smile a little [b “I’m…fine.” ] She still felt bothered and restless. He hugged her and she held him back. She liked getting a kiss from him. A date? She didn’t feel that excited as she would have been before. She wanted to hide herself. But he looked excited. [b “Sure.” ] She said.
She followed him out. They end up in a bunny café. She watched the bunnies and thought they were just so cute. [b “I can?” ] Ara reached out for a little bunny and picked light golden brown one. She would pet the bunny and it looked like it seemed to enjoy it. It was so cute. She’d smile and hug the bunny. [b “This is a really fun place Sy. I didn’t even know something like this was here.” ] The waitress came in. Ara got some tea, a sandwich and a muffin. In the meantime she took pictures of the bunnies. It really started to cheer her up.
[b “I would really like a pet.” ] Ara said, wondering if she was even able too. She worried about what life would be like later, if she could take the pet around. Well, it wasn’t like she didn’t have the movie to have the pet taken care of while she travelled. She’d sip on her tea slowly. She’d reach out her leg to touch his. [b “Thank you, for bringing me here. It really is making me feel better...sy, why don't you hold a bunny? I'll take a picture,” ] She said, getting her phone out.
He would let out a sigh and then he would snuggle up into her, falling asleep. They were both sleep deprived and had an eventful night. Sylus was just really glad they were both safe and that Ara was unharmed.
In the morning, he woke to LUke, having a chat with him before heading back to the room. He climbed back into bed with Ara, hugging her, but then he thought about the fact that he was putting her in danger and wanted to talk about it. She said it wasn't his fault, but he felt like it was. [b "Yeah, but you wouldn't have been traumatized or afraid. I mean....it caused us to move..."] he sighed and then he headed to the shower with her.
He saw the bruises on her skin and he would hold her close, lathering her skin gently with soap as he kissed her lips. It still made him really upset her father did that to her. It wasn't fair. They were both living through some rough times. He'd wash her hair and then finish up as well before heading out and changing into something warm. He still had to unpack a few things, but he wore some jeans and a shirt as he headed outside and then he would sit on the couch, talking to LUke about their situation and how he felt about it.
When Ara came out, he saw that her bruises were all gone. She must have covered them up. [b "You okay Ar?"] he asked, hugging her and then he would give her a kiss [b "Would you go on a date with me today?"] he asked, knowing it was Saturday and he did want to pick up both of their moods.
He had already planned a few things during the last two days, so he hoped she enjoyed it. Sylus held her hand and led her outside of the apartment, walking with her towards their first stop. He would lead her inside of a small cafe, but it was a bunny cafe. There were bunnies around the tables and around the shop as they entered. He would walk her inside and he'd take a seat at the table. [b "You can play and hold any one of them AR!"] he said excitedly as he leaned down to pet a bunny.
[b “You always do.” ] Ara whispered. Her eyelids were heavy. His song, his comfort and the weight of her tiredness prompted her to fall asleep. She woke to sounds of talking in the morning from Luke And Sylus. Sylus was back, and he was looking at her with all smiles, and even kisses. She half smiled. She didn’t feel entirely safe with him because when she was around him…sometimes bad things happened. Where he had lived wasn’t safe…his life was making her unsafe… Logically, it would make sense not to tarnish her life or reputation by constantly being with him. But…she loved him. She understood him.
She heard him apologize and she’d shrug. [b “There’s nothing you can do about right.” ] Ara said, [b “So it isn’t your fault. Besides, if I stayed home, then…then…stuff might have happened anyway.” ] Ara’s voice broke a littla at the end. She found him leaning in closer. [b “I…guess…I don’t know.” ] Ara said, she didn’t know what to do in these situations. Because they couldn’t just go to the police. It might get Sylus in trouble.
They got up, and head into the shower. She felt nervous for a second, getting naked because the bruises were more clear. But Sylus didn’t treat her any different, or acted like they were there. Which helped make her feel normal. She thought about how she’d go to school, how much makeup she’d have to use to cover that up. It made her so angry. Everything ade her so angry. Her dad. That guy who broke in and shot. Those thief’s…with guns. Was the world really always this unfair?
She wanted to break down but tried to hold it together. What good would a break down do? What could raging would do? She got so lost in her own head as they showered. She end up staying silent, distracted with her own mind. She finished showring and blew dry her hair. It upset her that she didn’t have her usual shampoo and conditioner, nor oil. Not even the stuff for her daily skin routine. Sy…really didn’t have much. She looked at herself in the mirror, feeling frustrated. She’d brush her hair out, and she couldn’t perfect it just with a blow dryer. It still looked really nice, but she couldn’t iron out the little details.
[b “Let’s go eat…” ] Ara whispered. She excited the bathroom, and would just slip on shorts and a tank. When she was going to leave his room and go into the living room, she realized Luke was there. She couldn’t go out there with a bruise on her arm, back and wrist. [b “Sy, you can go ahead.” ] Ara said. She went into changing into jeans and a long sleeve shirt instead she packed. She’d fix the mark she had on her cheek with makeup and then step out into the kitchen with Sylus.
He felt tired and worn out from the eventful night. Sylus wasn't sure what to do because now that his home was wrecked and some of his clothes and merchandise were trampled over, he didn't know where he'd be placed. Luckily the orphanage had a back up place for them, so he felt relieved, but even while he unpacked his things, he thought about how little he had.....what Ara said, and if he even deserved to have a girlfriend like her.
She looked tired and he felt like all of this was his fault. He wanted ARa to be comfortable, but at the same time, he never wanted to drag her into this life of crime. IT upset him.
Sylus just tried to forget about it for now since he was so tired, but it definitely was at the back of his mind. He played her a song and snuggled into her in bed. [b "Well, I do want to look good in front of you"] he chuckled and then he leaned into her warmth, his hands holding her back as he slowly fell asleep.
When Sylus heard the sound, he headed outside and was speaking with Luke. He warned him about being more careful and not to involve Ara. It seemed like he was already feeling a little better, but still.
He climbed back into bed with Ara [b "Morning Ar"] he kissed her soft lips and then he hugged her [b "I always want you to feel safe with me....but I'm really sorry about all this Ara. I'm sorry my life is so dangerous....and that you feel afraid and cry because of me"] he admitted, leaning into her more. [b "I don't want anything to happen to you....but if being with me puts you in danger....I don't....know what else to do"] he whispered softly, feeling defeated that he allowed all of this to happen. [b "I'll be okay. I'm used to this"] he sighed softly as he met her eyes.
[b "We can shower....I'm just...I feel a bit tired still"] he slowly got up and held her hand in his. HE would lead her to the bathroom as he found his towels, his shampoo and soap. HE set them into the bathroom and he would start the warm water.
She still felt shaken and with barely any sleep, she felt so uneasy. She felt his arms around her. She held onto him too, closing her eyes. [b “Something like this happened before…remember?” ] Ara whispered. She felt good it was closer, that maybe [b “So it’ll be safer…” ] She said. She pressed her head into him. [b “Yea…we did.” ] She felt so tired. She’d look up at his eyes and then would give a slow nod.
Ara slipped into the bed, putting the blanket over her. She watched him grab his guitar and play the strings. She looked up back into his eyes and listened to him play. He sung nicely and him playing was calming her down. She’d hum quietly with him. Ara would smile back to him, [b “You’re talented.” ] Ara said. He climbed into bed with her. She would snuggle with him and close her eyes. She felt calmer, safer, enough to fall asleep with him. She’d feel his fingers brush through his hair and heard his promise. She held onto him tighter. [b “Me too…” ] Ara whispered quietly. It felt good…knowing he was here and he’d protect her. She’d softly kiss him back briefly too.
Ara had fallen asleep. She flinched when she heard a sound. She woke for a second and noticed Sylus raising up. She watched him with her eyes half open. He left the room. She could hear the conversation from where she was. It made her slightly smile when he clearly sounded like he worried about her.
Sylus came back into the room. He crawled into bed with her. She felt his arm around her waist, and she saw his smile when he instantly shaw her. She wrapped her arms around her, [b “Morning Sy…” ] She whispered. She kissed him quickly, [b “Thank you…for playing the guitar for me, for protecting me, and making me feel safer.” ] She whispered. She felt good he accepted her too.
She would run her fingers into his hair. [b “Are you okay?” ] Ara asked, she caressed his cheek. [b “I guess I don’t have to ask how Luke is doing.” ] Because he sounded okay. She nibbled at her lips, [b “Sy, can we take a shower?” ]
He was frightened on the inside when the man came close to them. He didn't know what he'd do if something happened to Ara. It was scary to know that one sound could have ended their lives. He would gasp and hold his breath, but luckily the cops were able to stop the man before anything else happened.
Once they were taken to the the station, Sylus would stay beside Ara, holding her close and then rubbing her back, trying to calm her down. [b "We're okay. We're safe"] he squeezed her hand and would thank his mother for coming down. He got the keys to his new place and the cops managed to help him move.
He would lead Ara upstairs to his new apartment and he'd slowly start to settle in. Luke was there too unpacking, but he left them alone for now. He would take in a deep breath and then he would sigh a bit as he set up his switch and then put his guitar out and hung his clothes.
HE noticed Ara looking shaky, she would say she wasn't fine and he would frown, going over to her and hugging her in his arms. [b "Ara....we just had an unlucky night. This neighborhood is better than that one and I'm closer to you too. It was scary....but we made it out okay"] he held her close, knowing that this has been his whole life. IT was always in danger, but he never wanted to drag her in it.
[b "Okay. Let's relax. How about I play you a song?"] he suggested, letting her climb into bed as he grabbed his guitar. He sung an acoustic version of Wonderwall. He wanted to calm her down and let her know that here, they were safer.
Sylus would strum the guitar, play a few chords and when he finished, he set it aside and climbed into bed with her. HE was tired and worn out from all that had happened. IT was so scary. He would lay beside her, holding her close. He then would brush her hair back, yawning softly. [b "I'll protect you no matter what"] he told her, kissing her lips and soon falling asleep.
The sounds of a loud crash woke him. He looked at the clock, seeing ten in the morning. Sylus got up and he walked outside, taking a peek. Luke dropped the toaster on the ground. "Sorry" he saw Sylus and then he frowned.
[b "Luke, you know that guy was after you. You have to be more careful leading them home"] he sighed.
"I know I know. It was just hard because of how beat up I was"
[b "Just make sure you're careful. I don't want anything like that happening to us again. We could have been killed. Ara could've gotten hurt!"] he said angrily.
"I get it. I'll be more careful. But hey, look check this place out. It's nicer than the other one?" he smirked.
Sylus just rolled his eyes and would walk back to his room annoyed. He wanted Luke to take things more seriously, especially since he had Ara over often now. HE would see her in bed and he'd crawl in beside her, his arm moving around her waist, smiling as he nuzzled back into her warmth.
He stayed with her in that secure spot. He held her and even gave her a kiss. It was comforting, to see his eyes, to feel his warmth. Shew as still scared but she felt good when he tried to make her feel safe. That didn’t last long because it got serious, until the cops came.
Ara would dry her blurry teared eyes, [b “Yea,” ] She’d half cry. [b “I’m okay.” ] She’d feel his finger sthrough her hair and she’d squeeze his hand, and was not letting go, like her life depended on it. She wanted to cling onto him like a little scared kid.
Sylus opened the door for them. They were met with the cops. She felt nervous talking to them. She didn’t know what she could say and what she couldn’t. She’d just say she didn’t know much, and that all she heard was that he wanted money. She didn’t have to convince them that that was the truth because tears were coming out and her fear was real.
Ara would gather her backpack quickly and go with Sylus to the station. She felt nervous. She knew they’d call her dad. Then one the cops realized who her dad was and was surprised because he thought she was just another teenager living in a bad neighborhood. Happily, her father didn’t pick up the call and she assured them that she was fine with Sylus. She suspected her dad was too drunk.
Ara was still rather shakey, always holding his hand and staying glued to his side. His dorm mother came in. She’d give a quiet high. She was exhausted. Her bruising was starting to show and then she was asked other questions, which she said it was due to sports. She wasn’t sure if they bought it.
Finally, they got to return to Sylus’ new apartment. It was six thirty am at this point. She felt restless. Ara and Sy got int his room. She’d sit on the bed, staring down at the floor for a moment. [b “It was…terrifying.” } she’d whisper. “Yes…I’m…no, I’m not fine.” ] Ara said, shaking her head, [b “I’m not. You’ll always be in danger. That can happen again and, I can’t do anything about it. I can’t protect myself either. That was scary Sy. He could have shot you, or shot me. Or maybe you’d shoot him and you’d get in trouble or be traumatized,” ] She rambled. She covered her face for a moment. She was…so tired.
[b “Please…” ] Ara said soflty [b “Please sleep in bed with me. I can’t sleep alone.” ] She’d say, looking at his eyes, looking really effected by what happened. It was a lot to take all in one day, or…now two. She’d reach out to hold his hand, [b “I really am naïve…this stuff really doesn’t just happen in movies.” ]
He didn't think that ARa would think of him so lowly, but when she mentioned that there was nothing to rob, he felt a bit ashamed. He told her it wasn't nice. [b "I guess so?"] he stayed quiet and still as they sat in the trapped door of the closet.
Sylus was nervous mostly because he wanted ARa safe. If anything happened to her, he wasn't sure what he was going to do. It would mean that he couldn't protect her and he never wanted that. His eyes looked over and gave her a kiss, hoping she'd feel safe with him.
As soon as the crash was heard, Sylus felt a bit panicked on the inside, holding the gun to the door just in case. The man kept getting closer, searching through the closet. Luckily the cops came and managed to cuff him up. Sylus breathed in relief as he faced Ara [b "I'm fine. Are you okay?"] he brushed her hair back and then he heard the cops. Sylus opened the door and slowly stepped out as he helped Ara out. [b "We're okay, just scared"] he admitted and they were taken to the living room for questioning, Luke was also there.
Sylus mentioned how someone came in for money as well, playing off Ara's story and Luke backed him up. Once they were done speaking with them, the police spoke with Luke and Sylus about another temporary home they would be staying in. This neighborhood wasn't safe and the orphanage had another apartment open for them to stay at.
Sylus would hold Ara's hand and they would be led to one of the cop cars. The thieves were captured, but two managed to escape. There was one casualty, but the rest of the neighborhood was okay.
Over the next few hours, Sylus and Ara were released from the station, getting an excused absence from school. His dorm mother met him at the station and gave him a hug, feeling so glad he was safe after getting the phone call.
He was given the keys to his new apartment that was a little closer to Ara's house, so the cops were nice enough to give him a ride there, along with bringing a few of his essentials.
Sylus walked up to the run down building and would head inside the second floor apartment. Luke was already there unloading his things. When they entered his room, it was about the same size as his old room. He would put his things on his bed, going back to the cop car and unloading the rest. A bed and desk were already set up, so it wasn't too bad.
He would glance at Ara [b "I'm really glad that we won't have to stay there anymore. It was a scary neighborhood. You sure you're okay AR? You can take a nap on my bed? I just have to unpack a few things.
Logically, it didn’t make sense to be robbed here. They wouldn’t find much. That selective thought was comforting. Not nice…? [b “It’s a good thing not to be robbed.” ] Ara reminded quietly. She’d whisper a thank you when she was under the warmth of his jacket over her shoulder.
Could Sylus be scared too? She’d look at his amber eyes. His eyes appeared more determined than showing fear. Ara paid attention to the blaring sounds of sirens, gunshots into the atmosphere outside. It sounded close enough to her….but sounds that were even closer came in.
The sound of footsteps on metal. Ara tilted her head up to catch Sylus, wondering if he heard it too. A whimper escaped out of her lips when the sound of shattered glass filled his room. Her stomach plummeted and she held her breath, staring into the darkness, at the door in front of them. Sylus had them backed against the wall. Her gun in his hand aiming for the door. Her mind ran in full speed as they noise kept getting closer, and shouting. She worried for Luke. She worried for them. Sylus covered her mouth. Tears rolled down her cheeks onto his hand when she heard the gunshot go off into the room. He kept getting into the closet and it had her scared.
Police came in, shouting at the guy to put his hands up. Ara felt such relief come over her that it was over. IT was safe now. That man couldn’t get Luke, or them. She’d breath-finally. Ara’s tear filled blurry eyes looked up at him when he asked the question. He released his hand from her mouth. She’d give a small nod. She faced him and hugged him tightly, pressing her forehead against his chest tightly. Then she’d look up at him [b “Are you okay?” ] She half cried.
She heard faint chatter outside of the room, and then someone coming in the room.
“Is anyone hiding here? It’s safe, we want to make sure everyone is okay.” The cop said. Ara looked back at Sylus, wondering if they even should. If he’d nod to her, she’d go outside with him, for some questions. The questions would consist of, “Are you harmed? Do you know the man? Why did he come into the apartment?” Ara felt so emotionally drained. The only thing she knew was that he was calling out for Luke, and that he was looking for money. But, she wasn’t sure if she should even be saying that to the cops, so she didn’t if they did talk to them.
This usually happened sometimes at night in this neighborhood. Not only was it a run down place, but it was all the orphanage could afford. They didn't have much money to begin with, but this complex had a majority of the teens almost to the age of eighteen. By that time, they could move wherever they wanted.
He locked down the house, taking a peak to see Luke still in bed. He went back to his room to make sure Ara was okay, slowly taking her hand and leading her into the closet, helping into the trap door. This place was saved for extreme situations. Sylus was smart enough to know that what he did wasn't safe and he knew that he had to take counter measures. He stayed with ARa in the closet. Her words made him realize that she was hinting at the fact that he had nothing. [b "Um, that's not nice Ara"] he told her, putting the jacket over her as he stayed quiet.
He told her to keep her voice low as the sounds of the police sirens entered the scene. There were a few gunshots that could be heard, but more importantly, he could hear footsteps on the fire escape. Sylus backed up against the wall, holding Ara close as he heard the sounds of a window shattering. Someone climbed down from the window and was walking around his room, each thump of a step could be heard.
Sylus held his breath, holding the gun forward against the trap door. THe footsteps approached the closet. His things were being shuffled around and tossed. "Where you at Luke! I saw you coming into this building" the man spoke as he walked around the closet. The sound of clothes could be heard falling down the racks. "Where are you? You owe us some money"
Sylus would cover Ara's mouth with his hand, hearing the voice draw nearer. The man fired gunshots into the ceiling. "Come out come out! I know you're barely able to move"
His heart was beating rapidly in his chest, hoping he didn't find the trap door. He sent a text to Luke to get out or hide. The man ruffled through the closet until a loud crash filled the house. The cops drew inside and one would tackle the man to the ground. He gasped and yelled out "Let me go! Let me go!"
But the cops managed to remove his weapon and cuff him. They dragged him out of the apartment and that's when Luke came out of his room. He spoke with the cops about how there were two others here with him, probably hiding.
Sylus released his breath, leaning back against the wall as he sighed in relief. He would slowly calm down, looking over at Ara. [b "Ar....you okay?"] he asked, releasing his hand from her mouth.
Stuff like this…it didn’t happen to her. It only happened in fiction. She freaked out the second she saw people below with guns, breaking down into a house. She’d sit down on the floor. Sylus came in and wrapped his arms around her. She held onto him, burying her face into his chest. She was shivering. She’d follow him along to his closet. She tried to control her breathing but it was shallow. Too much was happening lately. He opened a door into a tiner room. It made her feel claustrophobic a bit.
He closed the door, and she wasn’t a fan of this space, but was it safer? She could barely stand because she felt afraid. [b “How is that a reason not to be scared? How fast are the cops?” ] She asked and then tried to calm down, [b “Right…they wouldn’t find us here.” ] Ara whispered, and wondered about Luke. They were breaking into a house…not here. Why would they break into a random apartment that was definitely…run down. It wouldn’t like they’d have much to sell. She’d calm down realizing that Sylus’ poorness will safe him from being robbed. [b “Right, they wouldn’t rob you.” ] She whispered to herself.
She felt Sylus jacket wrapping over her. She still had tears in her eyes. She saw him pull out the gun. She hated to use a weapon for the purpose of hurting someone. [b “Oh…okay.” ] Ara said, but was still clinging onto him. She heard the sirens and would still be tense but less tense. Her tears were starting to dry, but her fingers were still wrapped around his shirt, clinging on tightly. She felt him kiss her head and rub her back. [b “Usually?” ] Ara spoke in slight panic, [b “As in sometimes, it doesn’t’?” ] She said.
The second he told her to stay quiet. She shut up, and nodded. Sylus would fall asleep in this closet? Was he scared too? He never looked like he was phased. She’d sit down and rest her head against him. She’d wipe her eyes now and then. She was paying too much attention to every single sound. Her stomach flopped each second that passed. She was afraid to fall asleep… She held her phone in one hand. She opened her mouth to speak but shut it because she was scared. She’d hold his hand instead, and try not to sniffle, but it end up making her nose feeling pretty stuffy.
He would make sure LUke was taken care of before heading outside with Ara into the living room. They sat on the couch and just sat together, cuddling and watching a movie. He really liked that movie because it made it seem like anything was possible, for both humans and pets alike. He would get hungry again and grab a slice of pizza before the movie finished.
He walked towards his room with a sleepy ARa, tucking her in beside him as he snuggled in close. He loved sleeping beside her since she was so warm and it relaxed him. It definitely took away all of the anxiety and he stress being around her.
That moment was short lived though when the sounds of guns raided the night. Sylus would get up and take a peek before making sure their apartment was secure. IT happened every once in a while, but tonight it was loud and dangerous outside. He locked the doors and when he got back to the room, he saw ARa getting off of the phone with the police.
He'd wrap his arms around her and then he'd hug her, trying to tell her it was going to be okay. [b "I know Ar. COme here"] he held her hand and hurried to the closet with her, closing the door and then opening up a secret compartment in the wall.
