(Y/n) pov

My captor is back but isn't the same look to it, they seems burnt in several places with speckles of blood dribbling off the mask and face. A look of tiredness and woe is being reflected in the dark pits of its eyes. But they're back with a particularly fresh smelling piece of meat.

It hobbles over to me, using an axe to keep itself steady. Before I lowers the meat into my mouth I just barely squeak out something

"A-are you o-okay?"

It stops for a second before dropping the meat into my open mouth. I swallow after taking it the strange taste of charred but tender meat. It looks at me with its eyes full of fresh pain.

The bed buckles suddenly as new weight is added onto it suddenly, and I can feel it tucked into my shoulder...crying? I can feel the tears wetting my shoulder and pillow. I'm still. With no idea with what to do in this situation I just roll my head gemtly onto theirs. In a way of trying to comfort it, whatever it experienced I could not comprehend...

Huntress pov/Flashback

The man with lightning was dead, the blots of lightning were silenced from his body. My own body was in pain but that didn't matter. I knelt down to slice a piece of meat off his front, as I did so my vision was disturbed by a bright light. The girl in my care, gutted, nailed to the wall with her head on the end of her bed. She was killed and I was too late to save her. I took too long getting her a gift when I should've been protecting her, ensuring her safety.

Then I was back in the hospital over the corpse of the strange man, with a slab of meat in my hands. Terrified I started moving as quickly as I could down the strange doorframe that allowed me to arrive here. As I ran through it i noticed the sky was off, everything was blood. Then I heard a strange voice like mamma, like the men with funny looking tools.

With those words infound myself outside of the door to the girl in my care.

(Flashback end)

My heart was racing as I opened the door scared of what would be on the other side...

Only to find her the same as she was before I left. My heart was in pain but I was relieved to find her safe, worried she'd suffer the same fate as the others.

I gave her the meat but after I heard a soft quiet voice come out

"A-are you o-okay?"

I dropped the meat into her mouth and just found myself crying into her shoulder, all the fear I had now gushing out of my face.

Relief was my only feeling.
