, prompt #281 "Damned." Spoilers for the King of Swords arc. "Naraka" is the Buddhist equivalent of Hell.
Sometimes Eileen wonders about hell. Is it like in the pictures, lakes of blood, furious oni ripping apart tormented sinners?
Maybe hell is quieter. Maybe hell is Eileen and Tsubaki, never free but never together. Hell is Eileen reaching for Tsubaki and finding only herself. Hell is feeling her heart pound beneath Tsubaki's skin.
In the morning they will be Tsubaki, who understands nothing but knows more than she wants to. But the night is for death, and that belongs to Eileen.
Eileen's stolen heart quickens, and she places her fingers to her mouth. She tastes blood on their lips.
