Drabble - Nightmare
FF.net / AO3
Warnings: Nightmare situation, panic, gore
Kanda was running. He wasn’t consciously sure why. Fear and panic swirled through his veins like liquid nitrogen as his heart pounded a tattoo against his ribs. He passed figures, human in form but demonically evil in expression with little other features visible.
Warm wetness fell from the sky and formed puddles on the bone strewn ground. Kanda knew better than to believe that it was rain. Rain was not red after all.
The bones gave way to skeletons as he ran, his feet catching on rib cages and femurs as he ran. Skeletons gave way to mutilated corpses. Kanda cringed each time his feet passed through decimated flesh. Corpses gave way to dead bodies and those gave away to dead comrades. Dead comrades he knew were alive. Nonetheless, he saw them lying dead in the bloody mud. He tried to run on but their fingers clung to his ankles, catching on his trousers and the edges of his long coat.
