His breathing was soft. Sometimes, it would get pretty agitated, as his heart rate would increase drastically. But for now, was soft.
Wondered if he was having a good dream. Sure hoped so. Life had never been kind to that boy, not one bit, so maybe at least like that, asleep, he could get a taste of sweet.

Almost looked as if he was going to wake up, but this just wasn’t the case.

“How long are you going to stay here?” A girl was standing on the doorway. Hadn’t noticed her “You should rest”
“Yeah” nodded, but had no plans to move. Outside, the battle was raging. The very battle that put that boy in that bed, sleeping.
“I mean it” She looked a bit angry, entering the room “He will be taken care of”
“I’m aware” Distantly gazed upon the red sky. With a sight, stood up, and whispered to the boy “I guess I’ll fight for you while you sleep”
