Title: Heeding me now
Author: Me! nova_bright
Pairing: Percy/Cedric (Deadric, really...oh I am mean.)
Rating: Let's say PG-13...
Word count: 105! Yeah, that's right!
Percy wakes every night with Cedric's cold, pale eyes glaring through him. Being a ghost suits Cedric, he is glorious in his opaque, morbid beauty.
His lips are as cold as ice.
His hands burn like frostbite.
It replaces the love they used to share.
Cedric does not speak much, but sometimes he lays his head against Percy's chest and cries translucent ghostly tears.
Those nights, Percy prays for his own death.
And then he waits for morning, and breaks his promise, his resolve.
To speak to a ghost is to give it power. And Percy keeps on bowing his head to the dead boy.
