"How to Cure Nightmares" by kunabee_tiger
Iridesce was rarely home. She was a wanderer, never able to stay in one place for very long. It was why she ended up in the Pound - and that had very nearly killed her. It was suffocating and claustrophobic. The end result had worked out, though. A bed she could always return to, and she was the only one with any say in where and when she went. She was peacefully asleep, dreaming of Maraqua and the see, when something woke her. It was a strange and unfamiliar noise, and she lay blinking in the dark before she realized what it was. Someone was crying. She slid out of bed, feet landing softly on the bamboo floor. The noise was coming from across the hall, which meant it was the new pet, a Stealthy Kacheek named Zabuzaf. Iridesce knocked on her door before opening it, stepping inside. The Kacheek had most of her painted clothes off, only wearing the shirt without its armor. In her hands, she held her helmet. "I'm sorry," she whispered loudly, "I didn't mean to wake you." Iridesce could see the tears still on her cheeks, and the fact hed hands were shaking, the helmet rattling slightly with the minute motion. "It's not a problem," Iridesce said quietly. Her voice didn't quite drop down to a whisper. She sat on the bed next to Zabuzaf, looking at the Kacheek with gentle concern. "I never sleep well, anyway," she lied.
