Nightmares and hugs
Weiss felt a strangled cry leave her throat as she woke up from that dreadful nightmare the lifeless faces of her team plastered across her mind, she felt her eyes well up bit before the rational part of her reminds her that she’s safe, that her team is fine and that it was just a dream. She feels the bed above her creek as it’s occupant shifts and soon Nora’s head is gazing at her from over the side. Soon the rest of her body joins her as she hops down from the bed upon seeing Weiss’s panicked expression
“You ok Weiss?” She questions her voice filled with concern
“I’m fine Nora it was just a dream” Weiss responds her voice hoarse, Nora frowns at that and sits down on the bed next to her
“It dosen’t sound fine” she presses
“I assure it was nothing, you can go back to sleep” Weiss said but the slight tremble in her voice was saying otherwise, Nora pulled her into a hug in response
“You don’t have to tell me, but I’m here for you ok?” She reassured showing Weiss such a gentle and mature side to her that reminded Weiss this wasn’t just a crazy energetic child but a very complex woman that seem for so reason to care about her. Weiss felt tears fall as she remembered the nightmare
“My, dream was horrible you all were dead, I couldn’t reach you all in time and you were gone” Weiss whispered turning to face Nora more.
Nora rested her forehead gently against Weiss’s as she rubbed slow circles into her back
“I’m not going anywhere ok, I've got you” she soothed looking into those beautiful blue orbs brushing a stray tear off her cheek gently with a thumb as she cupped her face
“I’m sorry, I woke you” Weiss whispered voice still trembling slightly from the nightmare
“No need to be sorry ok, we’re partners right? And partners look out for each other” she replied softly back, Weiss looked at Nora’s eyes and saw how much She truly cared. Weiss felt a dam burst in her chest as pushed her face into Nora’s shoulder and tears flowed freely down her face to which Nora responded by hugging her tightly.
