Watch Closely (Don't Leave Me)

Shino watches the bugs running along just under his skin. He's glad they're there. He's glad the crystal meth made them come. Everyone else hates them, hates it when they get inside their skin, but not Shino. He likes them. They have a place to stay now. They're safe and warm, and they're keeping him company. It can get lonely, but he hasn't been lonely since the bugs arrived. He talks to them softly, and imagines he can hear them whisper back. His body has become dependant on the drug, but he doesn't notice, doesn't mind because he continues taking it so the bugs don't leave, so they don't go, don't leave him alone again. He sells drugs to fund his habit. He doesn't view it as dealing, but as raising money to buy the necessary sustenance fro the bugs. He is not destroying his body, he is feeding bugs. He is killing himself, but he doesn't care, as he would rather be dead than have his beloved bugs desert him, than be alone.

A/N: Okay, so I came up with Shino, and had to write it down. His 'Asylum Kids' self fascinates me.

SPEAKING OF ASYLUM KIDS: Okay, so if you have not read chapter 21 of 'Tidbits', here's why I have not put up the promised chapters: I have written chapter 3, and half of chapter 2 BUT… it is on my laptop. And my laptop's charger has broken. I haven't had time to fiddle with it, but my laptop's really old and so I will not find the right charger ANYWHERE. So it may take a while before these chapters actually get put up. But they will. Trust me.

I think I will do the others' 'Asylum Kids' selves as well. In a bit.
