"You were having a nightmare," she whispers, kneeling down beside my bed. "I hope you don't mind that I barged into your room like this, but when I heard you yelling through the wall, I was worried."
I sit up, kicking the covers aside, agitated that she had to see me like this. "Sorry," I mumble. "I didn't mean to disturb you."
She sighs, sitting back. "It's okay."
The night-light in the hall is extending a diagonal beam of light from the door across my bed. Though now that she's outside its reach, I can't really see her, but I can feel her eyes on me. I run my hands over my face, needing to reassure her somehow. I don't want her to be scared of me. I don't want her to leave.
