Delusions?

Kiras sat in front of the fireplace, gazing at the flames in thought… his depression had spiked again and he was doing his best to remain positive and fight the urge to hurt himself… the voices in his head were restless…

As he stared, he blinked, thinking he’d seen something in the fireplace… in his mind… the flames had taken the forms of the faces of those closest to him. Avery. Xylia. Lilith. Dararoo and Kil-Azar…. The faces spoke but their words slurred together, only allowing him to pick up bits and pieces. They were yelling. Throwing insult after insult at him. Good for nothing. Useless. A burden… A freak.

Kiras panicked and he tried to shoo them away… but they wouldn’t leave. He backed away into the corner of the room and pulled his knees up to his chest, putting his hands over his ears. Was this it? Was he losing his mind finally..?

The fear and the insults hit him hard. Tears slipped down his cheeks as the flame beings still danced around in his head… they were only illusions… right…? He couldn’t tell what was real or what was just his imagination at this point…

The figures seemed to speak in unison to him.. speaking clearly. Once they finished their sentence… they seemed to try and rush at Kiras. He screamed, pressing himself into the corner further.

Nothing…

When he opened his eyes after having been expecting to be hit by a blast of fire, he looked around the room… nothing had changed. The fire was still going but barely after not being tended to in awhile.

Knowing that he was just seeing things terrified him… and what they said… was it true…? He certainly seemed to think so…

( @library-of-the-forgotten I told you Kiras needs hugs)
