chocobros having nightmare of s/o getting killed. They wake up to find s/o next to them sleeping peacefully.
I hate those types of nightmares, like I’ll have them about fictional characters and wake up looking for blood.
No, No, No! How did he let this happen! How did he allow the one thing in the world to be taken away from him. He heard you, he heard you screaming his name, he heard you crying and begging for him to “Help”
Yet as he drew closer, as he could finally lay eyes on you again, it happened. A sword, a sword directly through your chest, as your eyes stared forward before all light vanished.
He couldn’t find his voice, no matter how much he tried. Every inhale felt like his lungs were on fire, yet suddenly it came to him.
Blue eyes snapped open, as he lurched forward into a sitting position. Noctis panted heavily, a dream? It was a dream, but where! Where were you?
The Prince panicked as he looked left, then right, before noticing you to his right, fast asleep. Laying facing him, a soft contented snore coming from your lips. Yet was this a dream too? Noctis quickly reached out, gathering you within his arms holding you tightly, as he realized that he was awake.
“Wha…what? Noctis?” You muttered torn from your sleep at the strong arms pulling you into his chest. “Noctis, sweetie?”
“You’re here, you’re here.” He repeated.
Sleep jumped away from your mind, Noctis was prone to nightmares, always had been. Yet lately they’ve been under control, but the stress that he faced and held. You moved from his hold, only to gather him within your arm, holding him tightly, as he buried his face in the nape of your neck.
“Shh shh, I’m here. I’m here.” You’d muttered, you constantly wanted to whisper that it would be okay, but you knew it wouldn’t be. Noctis had these nightmares often. “I’m here, you can let it go.”
Noctis panting seemed to get under control as he held onto your tightly, inhaling your scent.
“I’ll text Ignis and let me know you won’t be available tomorrow, My Noctis. I’m here. I won’t leave you. I’ll never leave you.” You smiled, knowing he couldn’t see it, but you knew he believed these words. “My Noctis, you suffer so much. I’m here with you always.”
Noctis gave shuttered exhale, “….thank you.”
Prompto felt the tears streaming down his face before he even woke up. His worse nightmare, played before his eyes like a movie. No matter how much he tried to move, he couldn’t, his body froze, just like in his dreams. He waited, he waited until his tear filled eyes adjusted to the darkness in the bedroom.
Concentring he managed to move his head, rolling it to the side to see you beside him, lips parted, fast asleep holding tightly to his hand even in sleep. Concentrating harder and harder still, Prompto managed to curl his hand tightly around your own. Making certain that you were here with him.
The blonde man rolled over, wrapping an arm around your waist, pulling you toward him.
Prompto smiled softly, at the coo you released, “I love you.”
You smiled within your sleep as you snuggled closer, “Love you.” You replied, before your face relaxed again.
Prompto pressed a kiss to your forehead, so long as you had pleasant dreams, Prompto knew he could suffer through these nightmares.
He had flinched himself awake, eyes widen in horror at the tricks his mind had played on him. Luckily he was on his side so he didn’t accidentally wake up swinging. Glancing down into his large arms, he saw you resting on your side, curled in your favorite spot.
Gladiolus couldn’t help it, that dream that lied to him, he wrapped his arms tighter around you, stroking your hair.
“Did I wake you?” Gladiolus inquired.
You gave a soft sigh, “A little, everything fine, Baby?”
“Just a bad dream.”
“Do you want to talk about it?” You asked, reaching up to cup the man’s face.
“I’m good.” Gladiolus replied, hugging you tighter.
You blinked in confusion, you could still hear his heart thumping in his chest and the soft tremble within his arms. “Wanna hear about my dream?”
You didn’t have a dream, but you begun to tell the man a story you made up on the spot, slowly feeling his trembling stop. Slowly followed by the man falling back asleep, pressing a kiss to the underside of his chin, you snuggled back into his arms. “Sweet dreams, baby.”
Ignis awoke with a gentle jump, a gasp leaving his lungs as he stared at the ceiling. Weak green eyes looked around his bedroom, illuminated by the dim night light from the bathroom’s door. Allowing enough light within the room to silhouette your figure, your head and arm resting on his chest, while you curled into his side.
The man found himself pulling you further into his side, before rolling over to his side to engulf you within his embrace.
“I do apologize my love.” Ignis muttered pressing a kiss to your forehead. “I seem to have had a night terror.”
“Are you alright?”
“Yes, simply my mind playing tricks on me.”
You reached up stroking his bangs from his eyes, only to see the tears gathered there, “It was so bad, would you like to tell me what it was?”
“I…I lost you.”
You wrapped an arm around the man’s chest, burying your head within his chest, “I will never leave you, Ignis, not even death would stop me.”
“I am aware.” Ignis chuckled fondly.
“We can stay up a little longer if you’d like.” You replied, knowing that the man’s mind could keep going.
So the two of you sat awake, finding ways to improve the recipes within his book, devising ways to get Noctis to eat his veggies, and just generally anything else that came to mind. Only for the two of your to eventually doze off shortly. This time luckily dreamless.
