because of you // kelly clarkson
my heart can’t possibly break
when it wasn’t even whole to start with
You purchased your books — a small biography on Anne Bonny (who was one of the greatest female pirates to sail the seas), a science fiction novel — and stuffed them in your backpack. Grabbing your coffee you smile quickly at the cashier (not bad looking, you think) and walk out, the small bells on the door jingling.
It wasn’t a bad day, per se, only a bit on the chilly side. You were grateful that you snatched up your hoodie before you left your apartment. Making your way to one of the benches against the bookstore you set your pack down, unzipping it. Rifling through the contents your fingers brushed against soft grey cotton, and you yanked it out of the backpack.
In the process of shrugging it on a flash of purple caught your eye. You glanced to your left, and spotted— No. Why him? Of all people, why Eridan? The blood drained from your face and you forced a smile to grace your lips. “Eridan. Long time no see, huh?”
You hear your name and turn in a circle until you see who uttered it. “Oh, hello Vriska,” you say. “Long time indeed,” you smile charmingly at the familiar face. Just who you were looking for…

You sat in the corner of your room, you didnt like being watched like this, cameras on you 24/7. They knew you were dangerous, they didnt want to get hurt, you wanted to hurt them, and in doing so, you wanted to let go and finally let death take over. They had to stop you a few times, you were not aloud a bed anymore as for that could be used as a weapon against others or you. The bastards, you didnt even like sleeping in beds anymore.
This place had been driving you crazy for the past while, you were too deadly to have visitors, they didnt want you hurting yourself, or more importantly, anyone else. You had already chopped off your hair in an attempt to choke someone and escape to get alone without cameras and people to try and stop you from doing what you thought was right to stop her from killing the ones you loved; that attempt sadly didnt work. You as well had been chipping your horns, the anxiety killing you on the inside.
Isolation, your biggest fear, the thing you tried to prevent from hurting you this far, making your insides turn to darkness.
It was funny, you heard whispers every now and then, it had brought memories from your lost childhood, the memories with Gl’bgolyb… No, this time it was yelling. Your ripped fins flicked at the sound.. It was familiar, it made you feel warm… There were “No“‘s and “You cant go in there!” outside your door. It didnt take long until the door was broken and steps started closing in on you. You held back a sob, curling up and trying to hide.
"No… please… Im a monster… Just go away.. let me destroy her…once and for all… forever…"
Your brow furrows, but not in anger and more in thought as you continue to observe her silently.
You let few tears slide down your cheeks as you start to pick at the bandage surrounding your horn, your anxiety now starting to reach its peak.
Your expression softens and you gently reach out to wipe her tears.
