It comes in a sharp flash that knocks the very breath from his lungs, makes him cry out. It is her image that he sees this time, and she is dying. He sobs in his sleep, but then his sobs turn to something worse, more violent. Screams. He screams for her, a wail that bursts from what seems to be his very being. And then he wakes up.
She has slipped into his arms and he swears it's like she's been there the whole time. She is there, right there. She is not dead or dying, or anything of the sort. He brushes away his tears, pulling her to him and crashing his lips against hers. She makes a surprised little noise in the back of her throat as he does, a soft, "Mmph," that makes him grin ever so slightly.
He murmurs her name softly, pulling away and resting his forehead against hers. "Cato?" She asks, voice soft and sleepy. "Hmm?" She smiles softly, offering him her hand. "Dance with me?" He nods, getting up and pulling her to him, arm sliding around her waist gently as he pulls her against his chest.
Soon she is murmuring the words to the song on the television softly, a habit of hers, if she happens to be fond of the song. "So give me hope in the darkness that I will see the light. 'Cause oh they gave me such a fright. But I will hold on with all of my might, just me promise we'll be alright. Ghosts that we knew, made of black and gold. We will live a long life. And the ghosts that we knew will flicker from view and we'll live a long life." He grins down at her, kissing the crown of her head gently.
"That's a habit of yours, I'll have you know." Clove looks up at him, smiling. "I know, Cato. But sometimes I think you know me better than I know myself." He shrugged, dipping her down with a chuckle. "You may be true, Clovey." She laughed gently, the sound pleasant to his ears. "I love you, Cato."Another twirl. "And I love you, my darling Clover."
A/N: Pure fluff. :P Very drastic to what I wrote a while ago, Heaven. Check it out, if you'd please do so. The song is Ghosts That We Knew by Mumford & Sons. Don't forget to review as well!
