Companions react #1
SS has a nightmare, how the companions soothe them
Cait: she’s had her own share of nightmares over the years, they are so frequent she’s just got used to them. But Sole was one person she least expected to be bothered by the nightmares, since they go out picking fights with Super Mutants and Raiders all the time, the thought just never crossed her mind.
they had just gotten finished clearing out super mutants from the near by mall, too tried to return to the nearest settlement, the two of them agreed to spend the night there, and Cait would take first watch so sole could get some rest, it didn’t take them long to pass out which made Cait happy, Sole never slept well and seeing them look peaceful, made her heart swell. After what seemed like forever, just as Cait was drifting off to sleep as well, she heard a whimper, she quickly lifted her head up, looking over at sole who looked like they were in distress, tightly holding the sleeping bag in their fits and sweat was running down their face. Cait quickly crawled over to Sole, shaking them gently “Sole..” She whispered gently, which made them instantly look better, their hands let go of the sleeping bag, grabbing Cait’s arm instead, she just chuckled, laying down next to them. for the rest of the night, Cait ran her hands through Sole’s hair to keep them calm, and it worked.
Curie: Curie may be experienced with almost everything the world has to offer, but nightmares, she’s not really familiar with those, not knowing exactly what to do when sole had one.
It had been a long week for the both of them, a very exhausting one at that, the both of them were so exhausted, neither one of them undressed when they got back to the settlement they were staying at. Sole laid face first on the bed, their boots hanging loosely from their feet as they slept, curie laid in a ball next to sole, her head on their shoulder. When sole started mumbling stuff in their sleep, curie pushed it off as something they normally did, but when Sole started yelling, curie almost fell from the bed. She quickly sat up, looking sole over, they weren’t hurt, they were perfectly fine, she was confused and just sat next to them, hoping the whole thing would be over soon, curie would ask them about it in the morning.
Piper: She never really had nightmares, but Nat had them a lot, so she knew what to do when Sole started having one.
Piper sat at her desk, going over the current paper she was writing at the moment, making sure the spelling was correct and what not. Sole had stopped by to just say hello, but they ended up passing out on the couch, not like piper cared so much, she enjoyed having them around, even if they weren’t conscious. piper hummed softly to herself, writing away until a scream startled her, she looked over in soles direction and frown slightly at the sight of sole is distress. she slowly got up from her chair, kneeling in front of sole running a hand through their hair “shh, its alright blue” she spoke softly, making sole look somewhat relaxed “i’m right here, i aint going anywhere.”
Hancock: Ah, nightmares, a mans favourite thing in this entire earth, hancock gets them regularly, but chems always take any dreams away. That’s really the only way that he knows how to deal with them.
Hancock smiled a bit as he watched sole, finally having a good nights rest after all of the traveling they’ve done the past week, as much as he enjoyed his time with Sole, it was exhausting. He tilted his head when he noticed tears on Sole’s cheeks, he slowly reached out to them, shaking them until they opened their eyes. “Nightmare?” When Sole just nodded, Hancock reached into his pocket, pulling a thing of jet out. He held it out to them with a gentle smile, but instead of grabbing the inhaler, they grabbed his wrist pulling him towards them. Once Hancock understood what they wanted, he laid next to them, holding sole close to himself. “This is better.” Sole muttered into his chest, which made him smile
MacCready: ever since he lost Lucy, his nightmares haunted him, they were so bad he’d wake up in the middle of the night sobbing, gripping his pillow out of anger and sadness, they were a never ending nightmare, he understands what sole is going through.
It was probably around 1 in the morning, and Mac couldn’t sleep, he sat in a chair across the small hotel room that they had rented, going through all of the comics both Sole and Himself had collected on their travels, he was extremely happy about all of them, missing the adventures his mind had taken him in when he was a child. As MacCready happily reads one of the comics, a quiet gasp grabs his attention, he slowly looks up, frowning slightly as sole seemed to be fighting with their own mind. He pulls his feet off of the table, making his way over to them, as he sits down he rests his hand on Sole’s shoulder but they quickly grabbed his arm, wrapping themselves around it, mumbling a soft ‘don’t leave me.’ Before looking peaceful as they fell back into their deep sleep. MacCready let out a soft chuckle “not planning on it boss.”
Danse: he had seen every type of nightmare, from every solider in the brotherhood of steel, he of course would have a few of his own every now and then, but he was used to seeing others have them.
Danse was walking around the prydewn, it was currently curfew and the Paladin had to make sure that all the other soldiers were in bed, unless they had work that was given directly from the elder, then it was acceptable to be up. As the Paladin was making his way through the Knights quarters, he noticed Sole squirming in their cot, a thin sheet of sweat cover their face as they mumbled things under their breath. Danse sighed softly to himself, quickly making his way over to them before it got worse, he stood next to them, his presence only seemed to calm Sole down, which made a bright blush appear on his face as he noticed this, he quickly looked away from their sleeping form, mumbling “it’s alright Solider.” Before walking away.
Preston: nightmares…one thing that he never learned how to deal with, they still even mess with him to this day, but he’s learned how to handle them from time to time.
Preston was doing his daily scouting, well, it wasn’t really day, it was more of a 2 in the morning scouting. He whistled softly, enjoying the cold breeze the night air had to offer him. He enjoyed his time alone during times like these, that’s really the only reason why he’s such an early riser. As Preston made his way down the street, his peaceful toon slowly died out as he stood in front of Sole’s house, he could hear them crying softly, crying out ‘helps’ and ‘don’t leave mes’. Preston bit his lip, hesitant about walking into the Generals house but he soon decided that they needed him so he just walked right in. “Are you alright?” He spoke softly as he walked into their room, Sole was sitting up in their bed, holding their head between their hands as they cried softly, Preston set is rifle down into the dresser, pulling Sole into a tight hug. “It’s alright general, I’ve got you.”
Ayy, finally finished it XD
