Shadows and Sickness

Everyone was too busy taking care of a sick persona to notice the person in the shadows, waiting to make the perfect appearance.


7. Nightmares

Roman’s POV

I was actually surprised how fast Virgil fell asleep. He woke up after two days then fell right back to sleep. After Patton went to the kitchen I went into my room. I wanted to plan another adventure, but I might have to put it on hold because Virge is sick. Taking care of the darker trait will be an adventure on its own.

“I’m just g” I mumbled to myself. Turning on the Tv I heard a scream. It took me a moment to realize it was Virgil.

Not caring about anything else, I ran to his room and opened the door. He was staring in a corner of his room and mumbled. A look of pure terror was written all over his face. I turned to where he was looking at, and seeing nothing I walked towards his bed.

“Virgil, what’s wrong?” I spoke softly to him.

“He..he’s,” Virgil gasped. Virgil tried backing away from something.

“What’s wrong?” I asked. I sat next to him on the bed.

“He’s here. please get me out of here,” Virgil sounded frightened. He was against the wall still staring at the corner. I looked from the corner to him.

“Who? Who’s here?” I questioned. If Virgil was really that scared of something, it had to be something big.

“Please get me out of here,” He cried. I picked him up and carried him bridal style out of his room. As I walked out Patton walked up looking worried.

“What’s wrong? Is he okay? What happened?” Patton asked.

Shrugging my shoulders I replied, “I don’t know, but I think he might have had a nightmare. He looks like he’s still half asleep and he kept saying that someone was in his room. Someone he was scared off.” I explained to him.

“Virge looks like he’s ready to fall right back to sleep,” Patton explained. “Let’s hope he and Thomas does,”

“Thomas woke up?” I asked now walking into the common’s with Virge still in my arms. I could see him starting to nod off. Patton nodded his head.

“He woke up because he had a nightmare. Logan is helping him right now, explaining to him why nightmares are unrealistic or something like that.”

“Let me set Virge on the couch then I can go help Thomas,” I replied.

“Okay, I’ll go get some water and a damp rag for his fever,” Patton walked off. I tried setting him on the couch, but he just clung onto me.

“No,” He mumbled. His voice sounded like he was half asleep.

“Virgil, I have to help Thomas,” I stated softly. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw Patton enter the room.

“He’ll come back,” His voice sounded frightened again. I looked at Patton and he looked worried.

“Who will come back?” Patton asked coming over.

Virgil slightly shook his head. “He will,” I sighed and sat on the couch putting Virgil on my lap. He leaned his head against my chest.

“Who is he?” Patton asked. Virgil shrugged and just laid there.

“Thomas is asleep,” Logan stated walking into the room.

“Did he say what his nightmare was about?” Patton asked. Logan came and stood next to the couch and Patton.

“I think I know,” I replied calmly. Virgil looked like he was asleep again. I put the rag Patton got in the darker persona’s forehead. He was still burning up with fever.

Logan and Patton looked at me. “It was about Dayal wasn’t it?” I asked. Logan slowly nodded.

“Do you think-” Patton stopped talking.

“He can’t come back. We got rid of him,” Logan explained.

“Are you sure?” I asked Logan. He looked at me and nodded his head.

“Positive we made sure he never would,” Logan informed. We all knew that. But what if he can come back?

“Well, think about it this way,” I explained. “I’ve had a nightmare about him. Thomas had a nightmare about him. And Virgil most likely had a nightmare about him, even though he knows close the nothing about him.”

Logan sighed; he looked like he was debating with himself on what to say.
