Robin flinched as he felt a surge of energy the moment he grabbed the others hand. He watched the other carefully, waiting for the signal to pull his hand away— but Sebastian kept holding tight.
After several more minutes, Robin pulled his hand away finally, letting out a shaky breath.
"You… You okay?"
Even after Robin pulled away, the visions lingered before finally fading away along with the slowly dulling pain. Sebastian’s eyes remained vacant, pieces still falling into place before he wiped at the dampness a few pained tears had left on his cheeks.
The young man remained silent a little longer, voices echoing in his ears and sensations lingering still before he smiled and breathed out a soft laugh, the sound almost like he wasn’t all there just yet. “Warmth and joy… Love. So much love. I could feel my heart pounding like hummingbird wings,” he breathed out finally before realizing that he was asked a question. “What?”
He nodded slightly and stepped forward before realizing the other couldn’t see his actions “Okay… I’m gonna hold your hand for a couple of seconds” he spoke gently, stepping closer.
"I’m gonna do it now…" He breathed, taking the others hand in his own.
Licking his bottom lip, Sebastian nodded his head and tried his best to prepare himself for the contact.
"Okay," he breathed out before feeling the other take his hand. The effect was instantaneous. Visions flashed across his mind like a cerebral lightning storm accompanied by agony. Another cry of pain escaped his lips as he forced himself keep from letting go, trying to see as much as he could.
Robin frowned as he stepped forward curiously “Maybe… We could try it again? And find out what you see?” He questioned, tilting his head “Maybe you can see the past and future… I don’t remember what they’re called though…”
"… We don’t have to try if you don’t want to…"
Just the very idea of trying again had Sebastian wincing, but after taking a good long moment to think about it, he nodded. “O-okay…” The younger male paused and cleared his throat before giving one stern nod of his head. “Okay. Let’s try.” With that, he blindly held out his hand, unsure of exactly where the male was.
He smiled weakly “I don’t know how you saw that… But I’m sorry you did.. No one should have to see that” he replied, looking down at his shoes.
Robin frowned, letting out a quiet chuckled “You’re not a freak… Maybe.. What are they called— and oracle? Or wait… They only see the future… Uh…”
"It’s fine," Seb mumbled with a small frown, wishing he hadn’t see it.
Furrowing his brows, Sebastian nodded then shrugged. “I really don’t know. What good is seeing the past? It’s the ferret thing all over again. I think someone is out to get me..”
"That’s kind of freaky. Ugh waking up… as a… not your gender’s creepy… my god what is with this place? I mean, I’m… I’m a vampire. I literally got thirsty earlier today.” She pressed her lips together and shook her head. “No, I’m sorry. I haven’t. I hope she’s ok, too… and your kid.”
"You have no idea how much of a mindfuck it is. The nurse told me sleep would make me feel better and I woke up with boobs and other things. Then some male nurse tried to rape me. It wasn’t a good week. I’m pretty sure it’s really hell," he stated, widening his eyes a little. "A vampire? Whoa…. Are you, uh, thirsty now?" Frowning, he sighed. "They better be."
Robin looked down instantly, a shaky breath escaping his lips “I think… You can see the past…” He replied, looking up at the other, his expression somewhat sad “That’s the asylum fire…”
He chuckled “I remember… I was a cat and now I’m a dog… Werewolf I think” he replied “Maybe… What does that make you?”
Listening, Sebastian frowned deeply. “Fuck…”
The male widened his eyes a little. “Wow.. Uh, I don’t know… I can’t see shit, but when you touched me, I could…. A freak, I guess.”
Robin took another step back, his eyes widening slightly “Fire…?” He questioned cautiously “What? You saw fire? How?” He frowned, tilting his head.
"I won’t touch you— I… I think that demon-fairy-bitch-thing struck again…"
Sebastian nodded his head, gaze dropping as he thought, mumbling. “So much fire and screaming. Not hell. No. Something closer. It was everywhere, but there was…joy?” Looking up, he pressed his lips together and shook his head. “I don’t know. I saw it. Like I was there, but.. I don’t know.”
"Thank you. Great. First I was a girl. Then a ferret and now blind as fuck and can’t be touched… Are you okay?"
Nicole sighed, looking to the other man on the ground who was standing up and brushing himself off. “He’s fine.” She smiled sadly. “But it’s ok. Weird stuff’s happening I guess. Does this sorta stuff happen a lot here?”
Seb nodded as she said the other was okay but sighed a little. “Yeah. Once I took a nap and woke up a girl and then this other time everyone turned into animals which wasn’t as fun as you would think. I was scared to sleep ‘cause my wife was huge compared to me.” Speaking of Jamie, his eyes widened a little. “Have you seen Jamie?”
Robin flinched and pulled back, taking several steps away from the other as he looked down at his hand— no claws, so what the hell just happened?
"I didn’t do it…" He replied, looking back up at Sebastian "I only grabbed your arm— what happened? You okay?"
Shaking a little, Sebastian breathed in and let it out to avoid panicking as he looked in the general direction of the voice.
"So much fire," he muttered quietly before shaking his head. "I don’t know.. Just.. Don’t touch me. Please.."
Robin turned quickly, his instincts on high alert “Seb?” He called back, frowning as he rounded the corner to did the source of the voice— momentarily distracted from his own wolf issues.
At the sight of his friend his eyes widened “Sebastian? What happened?” He moved over quickly, gently holding one of Sebastian’s arms to hold him straight.
Hearing his name, Seb turned a little, reaching out to touch the wall so he could have some sense of where he was.
He could hear someone moving closer, recognizing the voice now and opened his mouth to speak only to have a small cry of pain escape his lips as the other touched him. Instantly, flashes of images flooded his mind along with pain. Stepping away from Robin, he stumbled, hitting the other wall. “What the fuck?!”
