There was nothing but darkness, and the sound of my own shrill cries. So many people were crowding around me, laughing and spiting on me like I was less than an animal.
"Get away from me!" I screamed through my tears. Everyone laughed louder and cackled like demons from below. My mother pulled me behind her back and wrapped her arms around me.
"Dia listen to me, you need to leave here. Don't come back! Go now!" I slipped from under her arms and scrabbled away, and dared not to look back. But as I ran through fields of various plants, I heard my mother scream. Tears ran down my dirty cheeks, but I kept running as she told me.
"Dia! Dia wake up!" I groaned and continued to sob in my sleep as Chart tried to shake me awake. My eyes slowly opened to see him kneeling at my bedside, one of his soft hands on my shoulder. The moon still shone through the window, and morning hadn't even began to start.
I clutched onto Chart and sobbed into his chest. I wasn't having nightmares, but memories just translated into my dreams. Of all the things one can remember, why these things? Chart just sat there awkwardly, but gently wrapped his arms around me and gently patted my head.
"Shh, its okay Dia. It's alright. You were having a nightmare that's all." he lifted my chin up with his fingers, and wiped my tears away.
"I-I'm sorry I woke you. It's too late, you should get back to sleep." he smiled and pulled a strand of my hair and tucked it behind my ear.
"Don't worry about it. I couldn't sleep anyways. Is there anything else I can do for you?" heat rushed to my cheeks.
"Oh no. I just think I need some sleep." I said as I lay down carefully as not to strain my now broken body.
"Sleep well Dia. I have a surprise for you tomorrow." he winked as he left my room. I looked out the small window, and looked at the glowing moon as I fell asleep.
