Deviation Actions

At night, in the dark, when the fear comes creeping in, she can feel every inch of empty space at her back. The twisting shapes inside her head flow out to fill the night and send their claws and tendrils to reach along the covers and slip down behind the bed. What makes a monster afraid more than the thoughts of herself she tries to turn down deep away buried into her heart, the constant sense of all the eyes which rest on her with the unspoken violence the hands long to deliver.

Alone in the dark with nothing to stop her heart from breaking, she finds her guardian. Her protector, daring the eyes to look, daring the hands to fall. Curling up, filling that empty darkness and pushing away the demons for one more night. Where does a monster find love, where does a monster find her guardian? In the smallest places, where somehow we live.
