In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye--
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
Thus doth Love speak...~
Despite the unbearable weight against your body, despite sharp points burrowing into your skin, tearing, ripping away the flesh from your bones, the constricting of your lungs,
despite the throbbing, the beating of your desperate heart throughout your body,
it did not hurt.
No aching, not soreness, not even a hint of irritation.
On the contrary, you could almost say you were satisfied.
"Is that good...?"
"Do you need more?"
"That's just fine."
"Take all you need, my love."
~How does Love speak?
In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher...~
So much blood...
The stench of the iron melding with bodily fluids wafted through the room. The darkness thic
“(y/n), I’m going to join Aogiri.”
“You can’t. No, you just came back. Kaneiki don’t, ever-”
“Just let me leave. We’re done (y/n). I don’t love you. I never did.”
“Then leave! I never want to see your face again. You know what? Just go, die for all I care.”
Then he turned around and left.
Every night you dreamed the same dream. And every morning, you gasped for breath, crying. The look in his face, there was no sincerity or hurt. It was the honest straight truth, he didn’t love you. If he really did, something in his face would have given away indication. But it didn’t. His cold grey eyes looked down at you with disgust and hate.
Even at Anteiku, you couldn’t help but cringe at the many memories you had shared with him.
You were upstairs working, until you heard a plate shatter. Sighing at her
You gasped for breath, your lungs burning from the lack of oxygen as you lay crumpled on the ground. Just a moment ago, you were being strangled by a ghoul who had decided that playing with their food was in their best interest. Next thing you knew, you were thrown down the dark alley against a brick wall with a sickening crunch. Something had broken and you weren’t entirely sure which part it was. The pain was all over your body, sharp and immobilizing. All you could do was gasp for breath and squeeze your (e/c) eyes shut as you tried to ignore the stinging pains that shot through your ribs and spine with every breath you took.
A sinister chuckle pierced your ears as the dark haired ghoul lumbered towards you, red eyes glowing like rubies in the pitch black alley. “My, my. You’re pretty strong for a human.” He slowly sauntered closer, “Most u
Touka frowned and continued cleaning cups and saucers as she rambled about the two boys to Irimi, who just smiled and shifted her gaze towards them. Kaneki and [M/N] were standing at one of the tables, facing each other as they talked about God knows what. They had cups of steaming coffee in their hands, smiling and taking small sips of the hot beverage as the other talked. Kaneki was scratching his chin nervously as [M/N] broke out in a quiet snicker, obviously humored by something the dark-haired male said.
“What? Kaneki and [M/N]?” Irimi cooed, her eyes gentle as she observed the pair, “They sure enjoy each other’s company, don’t they?”
Touka stifled an annoyed sigh and picked up a miniature plate, washing it with the cloth in her hand, “Obviously. But Kaneki barely talks to anyone but him. He’s
