Title/Song: Concrete Angel {By Martina McBride}

Pairing: NightmarexAlice
Words: 122

When he lay awake late at night, Nightmare often wondered if he should regret bringing Alice to the Land of Hearts. He tried to feel guilty for it all, considering he had let both Peter White and Blood Dupre steal her away from her whole future. But when he did, he always remembered what she had really left behind.
Bruises from her Father that she hid with her dress.
A mask over her emotions so that society didn't talk.
A little heart battered into cynicism by lies and loss.
After those thoughts ran through his head, he always felt he had done the right thing. He had given her a dream to set her free, which was all he could really do.
