Author's Note: And… it's been almost two years. I will definitely admit I haven't been too into the fandom for a while, but I'm making a point of finishing what I've started. I will be finishing this one-shot series so help me, and better yet now that the manga series has been completed! Enjoy and please review! I'm getting the darker prompts out of the way so I can end this series on a dirty/comical note.

Character(s)/Pairing(s): Black Star/Tsubaki

Prompt: Blood

September 23, 2013


There was too much blood in order for Black Star to be okay, for him to have that stupid grin across his face as if he didn't have a care in the world. Tsubaki was worried, so deathly worried for her meister; but no, he continued to smile, to grin, to be tougher than she could ever hope to be. His left arm was surely dislocated, a purplish-blue hue around the joint. That had to be painful—but no, he still smiled brightly at her as if nothing else mattered in the world.

"Black Star! How can you stand? You need to get medical attention right away—"

Black Star laughed, throwing his head back, loud and strong. "Medical attention? Me? You must be kidding! I can still fight!"

A dark shadow loomed behind the man, causing Tsubaki's eyes to widen. She couldn't move. She wouldn't be able to get there in time. "Black Star, look out—"

Her shout didn't stand a chance.

Jolting awake from her horrific dream, Tsubaki's eyes immediately began searching out her bedmate. He had to be okay. Seeing him lying there, fast asleep, the weapon reached out to wrap her arms tightly around the man. She shuddered lightly, shaking from the shock of the nightmare. Tsubaki was mostly relieved that her dreams were not reality, but she was still scared that it could actually happen in the future.

Black Star was reckless, she knew, and would leap into battle without argument. She squeezed her eyes shut, burrowing her face into his bare chest.

As if sensing her inner turmoil in his sleep, Black Star's arm came to wrap around his partner, pulling her even tighter against his frame. The warmth from his body lulled her back to a more peaceful slumber.
