The Thief's Curse (Part 4)He began visiting more after that day. First once a month and I longed for his visits, he could keep me company, made my life worth living again. Then eventually he visited once a fortnight. I would sleep, take something and sleep more the days he didn’t come. Eventually he’d come once a week and then, 9 months after Cyr died, he started visiting once a day.
He’d stay for hours; he’d make me happier than I had been since Cyr died. He made me realise that I could live without Cyr in my life again.
Then the nightmares began again. “You’re replacing me with a shinigami, Jess! How could you?”
“Cyr, I’m not! Y-You asked him to look after me, not replace you!”
“Jess, wake up.” It was Grell. “Please, Jess, it’s just a nightmare, wake up.” He shook me and I woke up, panicking. “Grell-niisan, he said that I was replacing him with you…” He pulled me into a hug and stroked my hair. “

I fell onto Cyr’s body and sobbed over him, soaking his body with my tears. “Please wake up, Cyr…” He didn’t, I knew he wouldn’t.
“Mum…” Christofer had walked in, looking concerned. “You’re awake…what happened?” I tried to explain but I choked on the words and began to sob again.
“He’s dead, Christofer. The thief inside of me killed him. It should have been me! I should have died!” Christofer grabbed me before I could do something harmful to myself.
“Mum, stop it, you have to calm down. He’ll come back.”
“He won’t! This is the first part of the curse, I kill him and then in two years she comes for me.

“Cyr,” I pondered out loud. “What actually happened to me?”
“Your eyes were pink and you were in a lot of pain. Then you just stopped. You didn’t move until you woke up now.” He stopped, the memory painful in his mind.
“Jess, your eyes are pink again.”
“I don’t even feel-” My body was overrun with hunger from nowhere. “I don’t understand, I’ve only just got back, I can’t be this hungry already!” I panicked, trying to get away from Cyr.
“I’ll get you a donor.” Cyr disappeared but immediately reappeared, alone. “I can’t leave, Jess, can you?” I tried but I just found myself back again.
“No…Cyr, kill me before I kill you.” I growled, the hunger overwhelming me, I just wanted to kill whatever I could get my hands on.
