False Love...

Carmori grinned as he felt the familiar aura of one's belief in his lingering spirit nearby...the familiar energy of one whom could SEE him...HEAR him...FEEL him...FEAR HIM..and thus FEED his SOUL with their fear...ignoring his previous endeavor to fly to the dock-yards, he flew towards the window from where the aura came...

Grinning mischeviously, he ghosted into the room, remaining hidden in the shadows as he gazed through the darkness towards his prey, waiting asleep upon the bed...oh how he LOVED preparing for a performance, awaiting his unsuspecting audience to even SLIGHTLY stir, so that he may appear in their dreams to transform them into nightmares...so that with screams as his applause, he could fly, high out into the sky...cackling and basking in his accomplished mission...

Hey, he WAS a HORROR actor now! Make NO MISTAKE...

Yet as he crept forward, he suddenly realized his audience was NOT a CHILD (which he was so accustomed to)...

but a WOMAN...a FULL. GROWN. BEAUTIFUL WOMAN...

"...WELL...THIS is INDEED a most interesting turn of pace!" He whispered to himself, peering down at her...indeed, it HAD been a WHILE since he'd seen such a beautiful lady so up close...he grinned...INDEED this would make thing MUCH MORE-

"PLEASE DON'T-!!"

Carmori was thrust out of his thoughts when the woman spoke...yet she was still asleep-!! ...Dreaming, perhaps...? Feeling daring, Carmori leaned in...

"PLEASE...D-Don't laugh at me...I MEAN IT...I LOVE YOu-!!"

"...ERk-?!" Carmori cringed...was she really dreaming of a lover?! ...well THIS certainly made things awkward-!!

Yet suddenly, the woman reached a hand up, pressing it against his cheek-!!

Carmori FROZE, surprised by this action more than anything...as a HORROR-ARTIST and SPOOK, he was (as it had been a LONG TIME), unaccustomed to such an action...such CONTACT-!!

Yet her whisper made it even MORE complicated, "PLEASE...I-I KNOW you love me too...don't you LOVE ME?!"

Carmori gulped...he felt out of place...then again, he nor anyone else living OR dead had ever encountered a woman having a one-way conversation in her SLEEP before-!! Not wanting to leave the woman hanging, Carmori spoke...

"YES...I do...I'm simply...not USED to the emotion...that's all..."

...GOD did he REALLY just SAY THAT to a woman DREAMING and TALKING in her SLEEP?!

Yet she spoke back, "I knew it-!! I KNEW they were LYING!! They said it wasn't meant to be...but I KNEW-!!" She suddenly SHOT UP and GRABBED him in a hug, "I've been ALONE for SO LONG-!!"

Carmori's heart suddenly ached...those last few words were actually true for him...

"I...I know...I've been alone...for a long time too..." He whispered...no longer feeling awkward...but feeling the words coming from his heart...

"PLEASE...let us not be alone any longer-!' She whispered, "PLEASE-!! KISS ME...make me feel loved tonight-!"

Carmori, if he were alive, knew his face would be HOT RED with EMBARRESMENT...and yet, being the helpless romantic he was, found himself leaning in...

"I love you...Carmo-"

"-REYNARD...!"

Carmori blinked..the woman's voice cutting off the voice within his mind with a name unfamiliar to him...breaking the fantasy...with a sad sigh, the Greybird knew he COULDN'T do this. He softly lowered the woman back into her bed...and ghosted away...

And when the lonely woman awoke, realized her dream's false promise and cried, little did she know that another lost soul was sharing her tears...
