Pink hair rushed past my sight as I felt a spark within me. It was as if lightning struck my soul. I tried to call out to the cause, but he was already gone, dust left behind.
My eyes darted in my head, attempting to find a solution. I clenched my hands together as sweat beads rolled off my face. It was impossible; I wouldn’t be able to save them! Suddenly, glass was flying through the air and that same pink hair was back.
He had swallowed the finger. Within seconds one problem was gone, but quickly another appeared. Other than a torn shirt, traces of the demon were almost forgotten. But it was there alright, and I was not about to let that pink hair be taken from this world.
It felt as though I were trapped under water. Pressure pushing my down, indistinct yells calling for my attention. I looked towards the source. He stared at me with determined eyes, pink hair dirtied. Why? Why are you making that face? I want to trust you, but please make it back to me.

You stood in front of me, head tilted with the eyes of a puppy. The wind blew through your pink hair as I clenched my hand together. I spoke the words that had been replaying in my mind for weeks like a broken record. Though your eyes widened, your expression settled into one of the brightest smiles I’ve ever seen, surpassing even your past ones. You threw your arms around my neck and held onto me as if I were your only lifeline. I bury my nose into your shoulder and breathe in your sweet scent.
The sun spilled onto my face, pulling me from my deep sleep. I hazily opened my eyes to see your wide ones staring back at me. I settled into a smile as I cupped your face.
