"It's a long story....."Shade said as he rubbed his neck nervously,his pupils shifting over to Nightmare"But Nightmare has went through bulling and taunting way before she even became what she is now.....The past person that was number one in this school,treated Nightmare and me,like trash since we below him in rank Twenty-four and Twenty-five and also because we didn't fully know how to control our powers since we were still in the stage of training....but soon he got bored of me when I remained neutral to his taunting...He soon trapped me in cell made of unbreakable steel so that I couldn't protect my sister or get in the way of his evil doings to my sister before my eyes....I couldn't do anything but watch as she kept crying out towards me to save her...My heart broke as I felt angry at myself for being so weak and helpless...."He said,wiping away a tear that unconsciously rolled down his cheek before he continued"But something snapped inside of her and before I knew,the guy was on the ground,completely torn apart and Nightmare stood in the center of it all,covered head to toe in blood. Nightmare went out of control from the anger she felt from all the times were she's been bullied and mocked for and went on frenzy for Vengeance....."He said.
Nightmare stared at the ground,her face void of emotion"Now you know what I been through and done....."She said coldly.
Duana was having second thoughts about the siblings. Her prime duty was to protect Angela not bring her into danger. Duana stood, staring at the siblings her thoughts becoming tangled with fears and doubt. Angela, however, had a sorrowful expression. She approached Nightmare with caution before hugging her tightly. ''I'm so, so sorry,'' Angela muttered, pitying the poor girl.
Nightmare tensed up from the hug before she gritted her fangs as the emotions that she kept locked away,soon surfaced as her eyes welled up with tears as they rolled down her cheeks"..........A monster is what I am......"She shakily said as an expression of fear appeared on her face and was visible in her eyes.
"No,You're not a monster! You can't that get to you,Night!"Shade said strongly but it only seem to make her break down more as he frowned.
''It's okay, Nightmare, you can cry but, you can't call yourself names,'' Angela murmured, rubbing Nightmare's back gently. Duana shifted from foot to foot, unsure of whether she should take Nightmare's word for it. I'm not sure, is she really a monster? Do monsters cry? Duana, thought, thinking of her rough childhood. ''A-Angela maybe we should go, have them sort this out,'' Duana murmured as Angela refused to let Nightmare go.
"I vow to protect you and Duana with my f---ing life!!"Nightmare said as gently hugged Angela,her eyes flashing to a golden hue"I sure as hell won't allow either of you two to be harmed by anyone that's a threat to you!! You have my gratitude!!"She shouted,the golden hue in her eyes glowing brighter by the second.
Shade stared at Nightmare's eyes"Night......"he said softly.
Duana glanced between Nightmare and Angela. She approached the two with caution and separated the two. ''I don't know,'' Duana mumbled, looking at the older sibling. ''D-Duana, please,'' Angela murmured as Duana looked over at Shade. ''No, I need time to think, we're going home, now,'' Duanna said, grabbing Angela by the arm and dragging her away.
Shade frowned as he hugged his sister,comforting her as he started to sing the song that he always sang,whenever Nightmare was upset as he soothingly rubbed her back.Nightmare listened as she slowly calmed down.
''Oh, come on just this once. Please, please Duana, they're supposed to be helping me get into a higher rank,'' Angela begged, releasing herself from her sister's fierce grasp. In her eyes, she could tell Duana was contemplating the situation, thinking of ways how it all could go wrong but, also go right. Duana eventually lets out a sigh, normally not able to be easily convinced but, Angela did require their help. ''Fine but, just this once, one wrong move and we're going back to Hell, back home,'' Duana announced as Angela ran racing to the twins with a smile.
''That's good,'' Angela said, grinning, almost out of breath. Duana came up soon after, arms crossed as she watched the three speak with one another. She looked down at her feet and bit her bottom lip, she was specifically ordered to keep Angela in check and safe. She felt like she was violating her direct orders as Duana licked her lips at the thought of it.
Nightmare focused on her hands as her relic glowed brightly and soon a necklace made from her elements formed in her hand,It aligned in rubies of different colors that represted the elements before she stood up. She then looked at Angela before she went towards her" This necklace is made from powers and It shall protect you from harm and give you confidence. Each ruby represents its element. The red ruby represents fire,the blue represents not one but three elements water,air,and ice. The green one represents Earth,Yellow represents Electricity. It will bend at your command. No harm to yourself or others will happen." Nightmare explained as she proceeded to clip the necklace around her neck.
Shade hugged Duana as he kissed her cheek,humming softly.
''Thank you,'' Angela said grinning as her fingers ran over the gems. ''It's very pretty,'' She added, her gaze on the gift. Duana had leaned her head to the side a bit after the small sweet kiss from Shade. She was more reluctant of socializing with the man, they were top of their classes and powerful, dangerous to her standards. Duana took a slow exhale as she watched Angela with careful eyes.
Shade hugged Duana tightly as he pressed his face into her neck"Please.."
Nightmare smiled towards Angela but soon that smiled was quickly gone from her face,her expression dull as she lowered her head"I'll prove that I'm not dangerous and to make sure that I won't hurt anyone...." She mumbled before forming a wolfsbane shock collar as she clipped it around her neck"I want to be someone's hero,Not their Villian......" She said softly.
