The door wasn’t supposed to be locked when Kefi went to go back inside. They hadn’t been that far behind Ronin, and it was already raining. They tugged at the handle desperately, glancing up at the sky in panic. It was strange, how something that used to promise so much freedom and life could instill such terror in the earthbound fae.
“R,Ronin? Sir?” Kefi knocked on the door, glancing nervously around. House was their only shelter, the only safe place. The stained glass of the windows glowed with warm, inviting light, now feeling like a cruel mockery. It was dark, their surroundings feeling threatening in comparison to the warm home they knew was the only guarantee of safety.
It started raining harder, water and wind feeling harsh and cold against their skin, already soaked through their clothes and chilling them.
They shrieked when lightning struck overhead, feeling like everything was caving in around them. Their palms slammed on the door in a panic, eyes wide as they begged, voice trilling in fear.
“Thille,” They begged, choking on the force of their sobs. “Mháistir, thille lidom,”
They couldn’t stand this, they needed Ronin. Ronin meant safety and warmth and outside was dangerous. They couldn’t stay out here, they’d die, they’d be hunted and hurt and killed because the outside was full of nothing but people who wanted to hurt them.
Kefi was more than happy to rush inside when that door finally swung open, barreling into Ronin without hesitation. They were wrapped in towels, whispered reassurances of I had no idea, I thought you’d gone in to rest
Kefi sobbed against Ronin’s chest, dripping wet, shaking like a leaf in the entryway of the home. They gave themself freely to the comfort offered, the sense of belonging and being wanted. This was where they were safe, with Ronin. They were never safe without him.
