Give in. Just relax, it will be over soon.

Tommy shut his eyes against the violent, silken whisper in the dark and fought not to scream. His body was beaten, his head was pounding, and his muscles were screaming even as his insides threatened to cave in on him. He’d woken up to darkness and pain, but as the minutes, seconds, weeks wore on in his head, he realized there was more attacking him than just a head injury stemming from a Bringer’s human servant.

The cuffs weighing his wrists down were forged by the Darkness. The leg irons, too. The only pair of cuffs not mystically made were the ones that ran through the chains binding him and securing him to the length of pipe just over his head.

He’d popped those cuffs without any trouble. Still, he couldn’t move.

It’s easy. Just lay down, close your eyes. It won’t hurt.

“Shut UP!!!” The scream tore through the darkness with a wail of desperation and pain that made it almost unrecognizable as his own voice. He was starting to believe the silky slide of shadows, gliding over his psyche and burning him almost physically. He couldn’t even focus on his restraints, couldn’t get past that veneer of banality and the deadly mundane. Shaking his wrist made his shackles jingle, running his fingers over them gave him a number, but it slid away in seconds and left him at a loss as to how to get free.

The building he was in was abandoned. Empty. He was alone... )

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying...

In her arms, he understood. In her care, he would be whole again.

He didn’t understand about the blade that cut into him days before, the poison that lived in the metal forged by the Darkness itself. The young warrior with the uncorrupted heart didn’t know he’d been infected with the essence of human isolation, nor that it was killing him from the inside out.

She had to call him home for healing before it was too late...regrettably, he was in a public place and had no idea what to do as she pulled him from the world. When he realized it was her touch he felt, however, he was no longer afraid...perhaps the others had explained to him that she knew about her keepers, the ones who fought so hard to protect her.

She was more than an idea, just as the Darkness was more than evil itself.

Even in his confusion, he laid himself at her feet. He calmed his heart, relaxed his body, and fell into darkness to find her. With words he wouldn’t remember later, she explained how close he was to death. He told her in thought what had happened that night and she smiled on skilled with his power, he thought to help himself by healing himself with magic, not knowing he was closing an infected wound.

He gave to her perfect love and trust, and so she gave to him his life again. With her touch, the poison left his soul and in his mind she put the things he’d need to survive his next fight without her direct intervention.

Tommy Karras was going to be a fine soldier against all those the Darkness had at his disposal.

And Hope would make sure that her newest fighter would live to see enough battles to make the Darkness fear her for many generations to come.

NOTE: Takes place about three weeks before Tommy starts becoming aware of his abilities.

“You’re aware this is insane, right? Not part of the dare or anything.”

Tommy swallowed hard, then nodded as he toed off his shoes and stripped off his shirt. “Yeah, I know...but you never said I couldn’t up the stakes on my own.”

“Just...are you sure about this?”

Totally unsure, Tommy nodded and tossed his t-shirt aside, hands moving to his belt buckle and working it free. “Yeah. So you got the stuff or what?”

Naked Dares and Houdini... )

“It’s gonna come, Tommy…the moment you stop being who you were.”

That moment was now, in the noxious jet pits that served as eyes in the face of the man before him... )
