The world faded to black and when Shion opened his eyes he was no longer in the room where he had witnessed Nezumi die, there was no chain attached to his collar. It wasn't the tower at all, but a place he thought he would never see again.

He stared quietly around the pile of books. A month ago, a week ago he would have been thrilled to be here. Even though the collar he could feel round his neck meant he was not gone completely from the Towers grasp.

Now though he just stood in numb horror, replaying the scenes of the last... Shion had no idea how long it had been, Nezumi dying over and over again for his crimes, because he wasn't smart enough to save him.

He picked up a book staring numbly at the title. Macbeth...

"If you're looking for a pick-me-up, that's pretty much the worst." Whether Nezumi had been sitting on the bed the entire time, or the dreamspace had created him only belatedly was unclear. In any case, he was lounging there now, one eyebrow cocked at the book in Shion's hands. "Try something by Wilde. Or at least pick one of the Comedies."

Nezumi followed his gaze to the walls, then gave an inward shrug. He was just a manifestation, after all. A compilation of everything Shion knew about Nezumi. He didn't know if this place was safe.

"The door's locked. Unless you get injured children as torturers in that tower, even you can't open it."

Other than that, he seemed to be waiting for Shion to do or say something. It was his dream.

"Why?" Nezumi's voice rang almost harshly through the underground room. "For just blithely picking up all this emotional baggage like it's yours? You really do love this martyred feeling."

"Oi. Don't look down like that." He snapped his fingers, and when that didn't get his attention, he unfolded himself from the bed and knelt down next to Shion. "Cry if you want, but don't use me as an excuse."

As real as you could get in a hallucination, anyway. Nezumi glanced down at the hand on his arm, eyes calm, and reached for Shion's wrist, to move the hand to rest over his heart.

"Not crying in this kind of situation is almost more messed up than crying, you know."
