Prompt 1: Sleeping
Hey guys! Here’s a little fluffy blurb for the gtjsefanclub anniversary prompt week! ^^ It’s quite short, but I hope you enjoy nonetheless!
The sound of the clock ticking echoed in your ears.
You shift uncomfortably on your makeshift bed. The ticking never reached your former home, hidden away in the walls of the house. Ever since the human had discovered you, however, and insisted on caring for you, you had complied, going against every instinct in doing so.
It certainly wasn’t the worse decision you’d ever made. You had clothes, food, everything you could ever need…and more. You had company, which was rare for your kind.
But the sound of the clock ticking at night was not a change you embraced. This was the third night in a row you had failed to succumb to sleep, and you resigned to simply lying there.
Suddenly, the sound of covers rustling beside sends a jolt of panic through you. You know the human is friendly, but seeing his movements magnified to a scale you’ve been trained to fear, well…it’s taking some getting used to. You sit up slowly as you watch him do the same, his clear blue eyes bleary with sleep.
“Everything okay?” he says softly, his voice rumbling gently in the near-silence.
You nod quickly. “Y-yeah,” you respond softly before remembering to raise your voice for him. “Just…having trouble sleeping.”
His eyebrows knit together, and before you know what’s happening, a pair of fingers as large as your entire body have closed around your frame and swiftly placed you down on the pillow beside him.
“This better?” he whispers as you regain your bearings.
“Um…” You glance into his eyes, which are full of a concern so genuine you can’t help but smile. “Yes. Better. Thank you.”
He slowly eases himself back into a sleeping position, and you follow suit, the gentle sounds of his breathing overpowering the ticking of the clock.
A smile still lingering on your lips, you drift off into the most peaceful slumber you’ve had in weeks.
