ever_lovin: (Kid Ben-tough guy)
[personal profile] ever_lovin
 The paperback of War and Peace slipped out of Ben's grasp as the sleep he had been avoiding finally took him and he dreamed.

"Okay Benjy, you wanna be in the gang, ya have ta spend the night in the Warehouse," Micky, the leader of the Yancy Street Gang was saying as the rest of the gang shoved Ben towards the abandoned building everyone knew was haunted. Ben tried his best to stay brave but he had been expecting a beating not this. 

"Fine, I can take whatevers ya can dish out!" He declared though he wanted to run, especially when the alley cat yowled. Several of the gang did jump but Ben managed not to.

Jamie, the most recent member pulled open the board of the fence while Tommy gave a mock bow, "After yous." Ben ducked through the fence and the board slammed shut. He stood there, gathering his courage and clenched his fists before stepping forward. He could do this, he knew he could. It'd just be a few hours and then they'd know he was a tough guy and they could count on him.

The fog grew and made a good try at hiding the warehouse but Ben knew where the door was. Once last look at the sliver of moon and then back to the door with a gulp and Ben stepped forward only to whip around towards the figure he knew he saw out of the corner of his eye. But nothing was there. Shaking his head, he scowled. So they thought they could scare him? Pretend to be ghosts? Fat lotta good it'd do them.

The hinges creaked as he forced the door open and he nearly screamed when he felt something brush on the back of his neck and he spun again but nothing was there. He saw all the graffiti though, the circles with the x's and couldn't shake the feeling he knew them or that they were somehow watching him. He shook his head again laughing at himself. Idiot.

Fifteen minutes later and he can't get the feeling of being watched out of his head. Shadows continue to reach for him and cobwebs always seem to wrap around him. He's coughing too and has decided to hide in an office for the night. If he doesn't wander, nothing can find him right? He found an old desk and curling up in the hollow below, he's almost comfortable. His eyes close as he suddenly feels drowsy but snap open when he hears the office door creak open slowly and whisper of footfalls tantalize.

He was lost, they were in New York for the Fall shopping trip and there were so many voices and people.

Now he couldn't find where he was meant to be and the world seemed to be getting darker as more and more voices kept getting into his head.

Someone else is afraid, he can feel their fear, it gives him something to reach for.

He's not alone though there seems to be something in the shadows and he stops to stare at a symbol painted on the wall; a circle with two lines through it.

The other person's fear seems to be pounding through his head and Charles sits down.

He won't lose himself, he won't but he can't stop crying. He's not mad, they can't put him away because someone else is afraid.

Someone comes running towards him and Charles covers his head and says, "I'm not here. I didn't mean to be here. Don't hurt me, I didn't know!"

Since he can feel that this is the true dreamer and he doesn't want to get caught.

Charles doesn't fight back, just tries to protect himself and keeps saying,

"I didn't mean to tell, I didn't mean to tell."

He looks up and flinches as it seems like there's someone in the shadows.

Ben's words don't make sense to him, he got lost and the world feels like its pressing on him, "No one did. I got lost. Make them be quiet!"

Charles takes his hand and stands up though he keeps looking in the shadows.

He's in this boy's dream, he shouldn't be here, "I'm not supposed to be in here."

He's trying to concentrate on the other boy but something's in the trees and watching them, "We have to get out of here."

There's a press of other voices as the other boy seems to carry New York City with him and Charles holds his head.

"No, you can't have him!"

He yells and holds onto Ben's hand to keep him safe.

Charles screams along with him and holds on as tight as he can.

In his room, Charles wakes up screaming and in a cold sweat, he turns on the light and shivers.

He hopes the other boy woke up in time.
