The darkness of isolation was inviting even to those most tragic of beings. There was a calmness in such a way of simply erasing yourself from the memories of others, in this dark abandoned rotten building James found peace, or so he wanted to believe. Every second spent in this self imprisonment was a testimony to himself proving that here, where no one would even look twice, this was his only safe haven. James wouldn't mind if this place turned into his grave, surely felt that would solve all problems. He sat against the cold wet walls that took lightness in this man but soon he realized he wasn't alone. Often times some homeless men would make rounds but this wasn't one of those times. James was attentive and the intruder was silent but made enough noise to blow their own cover. "I don't know who you are or who sent you. But if you're here for me, well that's not gonna work out well for either of us." Out the darkness where the figure was swallowed, out came an angel. James stared at her realizing it was Natasha. The look on her face said more than words could ever. She saw the man who preferred to suffer in darkness, a man who simply saw the monster in him. He was unsure how to react, instincts told him to rush in and embrace her but he froze. Lost in those eyes of hers. "Natasha. You shouldn't be here. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. I.....I" words couldn't even find structure as James was lost in her gaze. The moment in where he was most alone and figured no one listened to his silent screams, here she comes. James stepped closer holding his hand out. His heart beating quick, then as quickly as hope gave him a chance it was snatched away as her body collapsed into what seem like a million pieces. He panicked running to the fragmented pieces as it slipped between his hands, his suffering only growing as he awoke from his nightmare falling into the same routine every night, searching for comfort in a living hell.
