Marcel awoke with a start, groaning at the sharp pain in his shoulder. What a way to wake up from a very traumatic nightmare. He glimpsed towards his bedside. Reiner, who was sitting in a chair next to his bed, had a concerned look on his face. Marcel stared in embarrassment. "Uh... so. How much of that did you see?" He asked. Reiner giggled, "Only all of it. What was your dream about?" Marcel sighed, "You really don't want to know." Reiner sat next to him on his bed. "It's ok. You can tell me." He insisted gently. Marcel looked away, "No." He said, "I really can't." Reiner fiddled with his bandages. "Why not? Don't you trust me?" Marcel ran a finger on the bandages on his eye. "It's just that... I just can't tell someone what I've got in my head." Reiner stopped. "Am I just 'someone' to you? Am I not your friend?" Marcel paused in realization at what he just said. "N-no... You are my friend. A-and I do trust you! It's just that... The dream was..." Reiner looked at Marcel with growing concern. "What?" He asked. Marcel looked at Reiner. "It was about you. You were... In pain. You were dying, screaming. I guess I'm just afraid that you'll get hurt." Reiner held his hand. "I-its ok. It was just a nightmare." Reiner said reassuringly, "I'll be fine, Marcel. Don't worry." Marcel squeezed Reiner's hand. "I won't let that nightmare become a reality." He looked a Reiner passionately, "I'll protect you no matter what. Even if it kills me." Reiner looked back at him with the same affectionate look. "Really? You'd really die for me." Reiner then grabbed both his hands. "No! I don't want you to die for me." Reiner moved slightly closer. Marcel sighed. "I'll do it if I have too." Marcel paused and slowly moved closer and closer to Reiner's face. "You're... not just my friend... You're so much more than that to me..."
