Aki's POV

'Witch, witch, you are a witch!'

'Watch out for the Witch's trap!'

'Damned witch!'

'Get out of here, you witch! Get out of this city!'

"NOOOOO!" I screamed waking up in cold sweat. I tried to remember where I was, breathing heavily.

"Aki, are you ok?" I heard a familiar voice near me.

I didn't answer. I tried but when I opened my mouth my voice was stuck in my throat. It's been years since the last time I had those nightmares. Why I have them now? I didn't fear my powers and I wasn't angry or frustrated anymore. My whole life has changed thanks to this man who was standing next to me. The same man I fell in love with all my heart and I shared my life and my bed. The only man to whom I had given myself completely, body and soul, and I knew in my heart that he loves me in the same way if not more.

But those dreams…

Their words were still echoing in my head and I covered my ears with my hands, in a desperate attempt to stop them. But I couldn't.

"Please stop!" I begged closing my eyes tightly.

"Aki please, what's wrong?" Yuusei's voice was full of agony.

"I… I had… those nightmares… again." I whispered allowing my tears to roll down my cheeks.

He put his arms around me in a warm embrace. "It was just a dream," he tried to comfort me, "it was just a dream."

"Why I had them again?" I asked him but I knew he wouldn't know the answer either.

He locked me protectively in his arms, as he was gently stroking my hair. He bent down and kissed the top of my head. I felt his breath on my hair as he started speaking.

"Don't worry, I'm here for you and I will always be. I won't allow anyone to hurt you again. I promised I will look after and protect you from everyone and everything, when I asked you to marry me, didn't I? You won't have to cry ever again." and he wiped my tears away.

"I love you so much Yuusei," I whispered, lifting my head to look at him.

"I love you too Aki. More than my own life." his cobalt blue eyes captivated me, as he bent down kissing me fully in my lips.

His kiss awakened something strong and powerful inside me; a need that only he could satisfy. I kissed him back with the same passion, feeling the need growing and I forgot everything about my nightmare.

After all I wasn't a witch anymore.
