…and so… he dreams with his remaining auburn eye shut of the present…

…of a room with stark and blood-stained chessboard tiles… a floating, mahogany table cabinet passes him on a slow and steady path, and a fluted leg barely misses clipping his shoulder… an antiqued grandfather clock shrieks instead of chimes when the hour passes… and the girl who controls it all tugs delicately and compulsively at one of the light blue flowers tied to her neck…

…of raspberry-smeared, toothy smiles by his little, golden-haired charge… and the terrace overlooks the cloisters of the Rainsworth's estate so high above… he closes his hand gently over hers coated with the sticky, red jam… and feels a pocket-swelling of warmth in his chest when her golden-colored eyes light up at him with lovely and brilliant and naive trust…

…of sidling alongside another Pandora member down the corridor of the suffocatingly decay of building… the man with oval glasses and the long, dangly earrings nervously pushes up his glasses with his index finger and blushes in a cross manner when his companion purposefully fingers and rubs a silvery, beaded end of one of those earrings…

…And so dreaming continues until he awakes to the present… a multitude of events and persons has touched his cursed life briefly… but none mars his intentions or colors his soul…

…And he is blind when it does happen… during a private conversation at a banquet hosted by the Nightray household, a drunken Liam hiccups and holds the back of his soft, human hand against one of his companion's marble-still cheeks and murmurs his name "Xerxes…" so mournfully and so urgently that there is a twisting feeling to accompany it...

Pandora Hearts belongs all to Jun Mochizuki who also makes gorgeous-gorgeous-GORGEOUS oneshots as well. And this challenge was brought to you by the mind of xXxSebastianXCiel4everxXx. Because she hates me. X3 I joke! I joke! I love her! I gave her a bad challenge last time in the Vampire Knight challenge a month ago so it was her turn to take her revenge. And she got it spot on. I can't write Liam/Break for shit. Hence this tiny ass piece of fanfiction. Her challenge is probably better. From my list of words/phrases/concepts I was given… I used: Pandora, blind, and Nightray.

And… because I am entitled it… I'm just putting my opinion out there btw… and that is that I doubt that Liam is dead. There isn't enough evidence given to me as of now to convince me of this. Just because someone considered an enemy told me? That makes me SECOND-GUESS his death if anything. If he IS dead… it is admittedly very sad. Because he was sweet in his awkward way. If he isn't… it was good to question it. I love how this manga makes me think. IT IS TEH LUFF.
