FF: The Nightmare Awakens by ArtemioM05 FF: The Nightmare Awakens by ArtemioM05
The girl within the dream shakes and huddles away, tears streaming down her face.  Likewise, the woman in black kneels before your Hollower, in the midst of breaking down completely.  You do not feel pity for her.  Whatever you are feeling, this naseau...it is a lie.  She is just an enemy.  And so you command, "Let her suffering continue."

...

And so Lilrath obeys, allowing the nightmare to continue unabated.  The door flexes and the crack expands.  The room groans and stone cracks.  The Succubus waits.  Just a little longer and then the girl's mind should shatter completely.  The eye within the narrow slit is burning, blazing, encompassing all in a violent red.  But suddenly, it turns.  And it peers beyond the demon's construct, and straight at Lilrath.  And a cold voice enters the castle's deepest black, as the succubus is surrounded in crimson.

"You...you are the ones who dare to trifle in our business?"

And in that moment, Lilrath is unnerved.  There is the pull upon the dream, as if something else was grabbing hold of it, and ripped it from the Succubus' grasp.

...

She is so close to breaking...but then you feel it.  The control breaks.  The assassin shoots up to her feet in a mad panic and takes off screeching

"HELP ME!  THAZ!  THAZ SAVE ME!"

Shit.

"Hollower!  ATT-  Hollower?"

You nearly double over and nearly vomit.  And just like that it becomes so much harder to focus.  You are fairly certain that Demsdale is saying something as she goes to steady you.  You struggle to think.  Why?  Why is this happening?  You return to the Hollower for a moment.  Your mind shakes.  The hissing.  The chittering.  It is so horrid.  The sound pours into your mind and you feel sick to your core.  Whatever it is...it is the source of your problems.  You try to command your Hollower to attack...but it is too late.  She has already fallen to her knees after failing to strike her foe.  You let out a choking sound.  Whatever you are feeling now must be that must worse for your bodyguard.  You have no time.  You have only enough to focus on one order.

A. "HOLLOWER!  YOU MUST ESCAPE WHILE YOU CAN!"

B.  "LILRATH!  TAKE OVER THAT CRAVEN RAT'S MIND WHILE SHE IS STILL WEAK!"
