‘You should probably get that checked out.’
He looked at me for a second then focused on the road again
‘But then you’d miss the opportunity to nurse me back to health.’ He said with a smile in his voice. I ignored his sassy remark.
‘Are you sleeping, eating well?’
He looked around at her again, a smile tugging at the side of his lips
‘That’s nice, you care about my welfare or is that sarcasm I hear coating that sentence.’
‘I’m being completely serious Elias, are you?’
He sucked in a deep breath that answered my question. He hasn’t.
‘Alright you Devil, if you must know. I haven’t been exactly sleeping well for quite a few nights now.’
‘What’s keeping you up?’
He glanced at her again as his hands tightened on the leather steering which made his knuckles appear bigger.
I sleep for a good half hour and then this intense light just comes and pierces me with its sharp rays. It blinds me and I stumble around with my forearm over my eyes unable to see anything, nothing is clear and everything is chaos, I’m lost, vulnerable and weak. The air is hot and warm thirsty for hydration. I finally fall to my knees, surrender I can’t take much more of this knife like light and like a victorious champion it finishes me off choking me on its light, its warmth, Its fire the heat burning my skin until I burst up in flames, Then it is pitch black, Dark and I am the light surrounded by shadows.
Khloe applauds “Excellent performance.” She continues to clap “Encore, Encore.” She says as she imitates the sound of a large crowd going wild at a concert.
“Are you serious? Are you being totally serious right now? This isn’t funny” He shouted “I knew you’d act like this” he says in a much lighter tone.
Khloe clears her throat and lowers her head, fondling with her hair lying on her lap, twirling it between her fingers. She looks up and clears her throat again and turns to him.
“I’ve been having dreams too but it’s the total opposite of yours, it’s like the dark swallowed me and I was made of shadows.”
“It’s not hard to believe you’re associated with darkness.” Elias said with no remorse
