Lego: Hello everyone! Unfortunately, Tears of a Lotus is still being difficult. In the mean time, I decided to pick up the 100 themes challenge in order to motivate myself to write (heavily influenced by the fact that one of my favorite fanfiction authors, Joey Taylor, is doing it). I've decided to post the canon ones I write (no OCs and such) as separate oneshots here on my account to show that I actually am writing. I hope you enjoy this one! This was intended to be short and creepy. If it gave you chills or grossed you out, THAT WAS THE POINT.

Disclaimer: The YuGiOh franchise belongs to Kazuki Takahashi. I own only the story.


A figure rocked back and forth as he sang, cradling a half-rotten skeleton in his arms.

"Hair as dark as earth, the blue sea in her eyes. But now they see no more, they don't shine with the light."

Moonlight streamed into the room from the uncovered window and illuminated his black hair. The dye that once colored the edges of it and his bangs had long since faded. Plum-colored eyes stared out of his gaunt and pale face. He no longer saw anything around him. Not since she had died. Not since that attack. Her life had slipped through his fingers. But now she only slept, slept in his arms, waiting to be awakened once more.

He kissed the rotting corpse's forehead, oblivious of its decomposing state.

"Beautiful girl, dance down the streets, dance across the sky, dance until you can no more."

His lips split into a wide grin. He pressed the corpse against his chest as he took a moment to hum. His eyes slipped closed.

"Now she dances not, she sleeps, she sleeps as though day comes no more. Let the sleeping dancer rest, rest from all the world."
