A drabble for my friend @leeroythelusterror as their prize for getting third place in my raffle!
The nightmares that plagued him every night were terrible… usually filled with memories of what his life was like before he had been found by Black Hat. And in normal cases, the dullahan known as Dr.Flug Slys, would probably just had stayed up the rest of the night reading a book or working on one of his model planes. Tonight, however… was the night before a very important meeting and he knew he had to be fully awake. But Flug was terrified of going to sleep… scared that more memories would plague him if he tried. He wasn’t sure what to do…
An idea suddenly popped into his head, and he slid out of bed. This was a terrible idea. This was one of his worst ideas ever, he kept thinking as he walked through the dark halls of Black Hat manor in search of a particular room. The halls were cold… and every noise made the jumpy scientist’s heart stop in alarm. He quickly reached a bedroom door a little more ornate than the rest of the mansion’s occupants’. His idea didn’t require him to knock, however… so Flug gently placed a hand on the door and pushed it open in such a way that it opened silently.
The large bedroom was as dark as the hallway, perhaps more so since the windows were covered with thick velvet curtains. A sliver of moonlight slipped through the crack between curtains and fell on the bed, revealing the form laying under the blankets in the bed. Flug knew the occupant was fast asleep, due to the steady breathing so he slipped into the room and silently closed the door. Walking up to the bed, he slowly and carefully climbed under the warm blankets and lay beside the figure sleeping.
A low chuckle made Flug jump in alarm, sitting up. But a strong arm wrapped around his waist and pulled him back down. “Trouble sleeping…~?” The eldritch purred in Flug’s ear, making him blush deeply.
“S-Sorry s-sir…” Flug whispered softly. Black Hat opened his eye, looking down at the scientist now in his arms. “I-I h-had a nightmare a-and I-I th-thought th-th-that maybe-” But he was cut off when the demon pressed a kiss to his lips.
“You could have just asked…” The demon chuckled tiredly, closing his eye again and pulling Flug closer. “If you need me to assist you, then I would be glad to do so.” He let out a low purr. Flug slowly leaned against his boss, closing his eyes.
“Th-thank y-you sir…” Black Hat only made a small sound of assent and fell silent. Comforted by the warmth enveloping him, Flug slowly found himself drifting off to sleep, the nightmares no longer bothering him.
