Ash finally wakes up, but decides to stay in, reading another book in the comfort of his bed.
Ideruba sits around in his maid costume Wonder how it is like to get branded....
OOC: I see what you did there...
Ideruba muses more Huh. I haven't fantasized about Alice recently... Man. That's an achievement. Probably would have been broken today
Oliver held Ash in his sleep
Ash smiled and pet Oliver's head as he read his book.
Oliver cries out in his sleep, remembering things he had done, how he had to run with his co-workers...
Ash drops his book in fear and hugs Oliver. "Shh, shh . . . it's okay, I'm here."
Oliver cries, "no...I didn't know she wanted that..." He mumbled in his sleep
Ash rests his forehead against Oliver's. He starts humming a soft tune as he thinks, Please, whatever's happening to you, remember that I'm here to help if you need it. It'll be okay . . .
He began to wake, looking quite shaken
Ash stops humming and looks at Oliver's eyes. "Yeah," he whispers to himself, "something really shook him up."
Oliver hugged him, "I want to forget," he whispered
Ash hugged him close, his markings feeling a bit warm. He stayed quiet, afraid to ask.
Oliver nestled against him
He felt a little warmer and his tail wagged gently, but his face looked a bit somber and worried.
"are you okay?" Asked Oliver gently.
"Are you?" he asks back softly, holding back the fear in his voice.
"i-i remember something..."
"Yeah? What is it?" His voice was both curious and wary.
