This series of asks appeared in my inbox, sent by one of my sweet little nonnymice about their time at a convention today. I altered the format of their text for clarity’s sake, so there wouldn’t be a giant wall of text (because Tumblr is stupid when it comes to asks) and gave it the title above just because.
Take it away, anonymous!
So this is gonna sound totally wild, but if I don’t tell someone that might understand soon, I’m gonna explode.
I went to a convention today and a little while into it, I lost the two friends I’d come with. I was starting to get really anxious in the loud, busy atmosphere and was near having a panic attack. I was sat in the corner of an art exhibit, trying to calm down, when suddenly someone asked me if I was alright.
His voice was weirdly deep but also kinda soothing, and when I looked up I saw that he was tall, well dressed in a suit with dark hair and dark eyes; eerily familiar in a way I tried not to think about.
I mumbled a yes and he offered his hand, which I took.
He helped me up, and after a bit of explaining on my part, offered his assistance in finding my friends. We walked through the incredibly crowded hallways but people just seemed to part around him, and we had no trouble getting through.
He led me back to the entrance of the exhibit, smiled out of the corner of his mouth, and with a quiet warning not to “stray too far from my friends again”, he left.
My friends turned up a few moments later, and we went back on our way.
I didn’t see him for the rest of the day, and no matter how hard I tried not to think about it, there was something about him…
Maybe I’ve just got Dark on the brain.
So yeah, that’s my little story. I just needed to spill it, ya know? Hope you don’t mind.
If it was indeed Dark, then He has chosen to be very helpful today. He never does anything He doesn’t want to do, you know.
What really matters is that you were reunited with your friends. 🙂
But I would warn your friends not to lose track of you in the future. You never know who might be watching in the shadows.
