Stumbling through Castle Oblivion, he knew he was dying. His marred skin screamed in agony as the wind whipped through his wounded flesh. The pain never seemed to end it just grew and grew. Pain… it was the only 'feeling' he could really remember from his past life, the only one that he ever really 'felt'...

Blood… it never seemed to stop flowing…

God! Look at all that blood!

Smeared all over his black coat… on the walls he had used to keep him standing… on the floor where it trailed behind him leaving crimson rivers…

It dripped from his fingertips… ran down the corners of his lips… slipped down his cheeks… poured out of his skull… it was amazing he wasn't dead yet…

Swaying with every step, his breath became hoarse and harder to take in but he was determined. He wanted to reach his room, desperately trying to maneuver his broken body through corridors of endless white; he believed he would make it. Fumbling through the halls he desperately wanted to conjure up a portal but he was too weak.

'So weak…'

His lilac colored hair was now torn and bloodied, plastered to the side of his face. His cold, hard eyes were bloodshot and wide with dread as he began to lose focus on his surroundings. The room spun wildly before him and soon the floor rushed up to greet him. He never felt himself touch the ground but as he faced the wall he knew he had fallen.

'So close…'

He coughed up more of the red liquid through broken lips as he began to convulse on the ground. His arms lay uselessly at his sides as he felt that sudden coldness rip through him. His vision began to darken and his body began to go numb…

'It's so clear… so close…'

"I want to hear you scream. Got it memorized?"

As the world began to melt away and his pain slowly disappeared he remembered the other Nobody's voice. That mocking tone that had destroyed him…

"Don't worry, Zexion. It'll all be over quickly. You won't even feel yourself fade…"


Author's Notes: Yeah so I edited this piece since it always did bug me a bit. Wow it seems way shorter now. Anyway review if you want it won't bother me too much but it'd be nice.
