Fading Away by Reyniki Fading Away by Reyniki
"It felt like I was falling apart, like my mind was being shattered to a billion pieces. I could see pieces of me fluttering away and for one long moment, I didn't know how to process what was happening. I just kept staring blankly at my hand as these weird pink bugs started to crawl out from beneath my skin then flying away. They never seem to fly far though, as they circle around me after they let my body. 

My body grew weak and I felt tired. I knelt down on the forest floor, my eyes half closed. For a split second, I figured this was all a weird dream and if I fall back asleep, I would be back to normal. Yeah. It was just a dream.

However, before my eyelids could fully close, a sudden cold chill went down my back. My breath became uneven and I started to cough viciously. Every cough spat out mouthfuls of blood, spilling on the floor and creating a pool in front of me. Every inch of my body screamed in pain as more and more bugs teared their way out of my body. This was not a dream.

I cried out through the mouthful of blood, choking and sputtering out pleas of mercy. I turned towards the direction I knew was home and dug my fingers into the ground, dragging my bloodied body across the floor. Soon, my hands were reduced to nothing but bones and the buzzing of the bugs around my head drove me close to insanity. I didn't make it far before I touched someone's shoe. A quick rush of relief washed through me as I thought someone has heard me and arrived to my aid.

But when I looked up, all I saw was her."

UPDATE: Took out the lighting effect, did a minor line edit on the nose not that it fixed anything, and added blur effect

This piece is incredible! Like your art in general :D
I adore the colours you used and the expression is awesome.
The little snippet you wrote is super intense and it has a strange, but good pull, with the way it goes from surreal and somewhat peaceful to nightmarish within just a few paragraphs. It's very well written ^^
I'm curious about this guy and why this happened to him, but more so, I'm curious about her
Great job as always!
