- "...None of your business."
Theo turned to look at Harue, taken aback by the iciness in his tone. His question elicited an even worse response than what he had intended to prevent. But he knew overreaction to a small remark meant a sensitive spot had been touched. Where did Harue live before, what kind of life did he have there and why was the mere mention of it enough to make him apprehensive?
Theo smiled. He could sense, taste Harue’s fears. And all Nightmares relish in people’s fears. But the kind that Harue had was so similar to Aiden's; it nourished the Nightmare. Theo's soulless eyes momentarily lit up with a sadist’s delight as he watched Harue fidget uncomfortably. He even moved further away as if frightened by Theo. Harue was like a vulnerable puppy struggling to get away as it was fondled against its will. Theo’s fingers twitched, longing, desiring to pet him.
But Theo quickly took a fierce hold of his senses and forced himself to turn and look out the window. Harue must not see his smile.
“I’m sorry, Harue.” His voice softened, “If it was something I said, I didn’t mean it.”
The taxi pulled over by the hospital gates. Theo took out five dollars and handed it to the driver, with no concern at all if it was too little or too much. Then he opened the car door on his side and made a show of shakily trying to get on his two feet. If Harue still did not help him, Theo would let himself fall to the ground. It was a detestable thing to do. But by doing this, perhaps Harue could forget about what had transpired between them.
