I groan and wake again for the third time. Nero places the bucket under my chin and I cough sputtering blood into it.
"This is so unfair" I say moving the bucket to the side.
"Yeah well, it seems like you are sort of his main target" Nero mutters stroking my hair. I look up at him and sit up.
"Nero..... No it doesn't matter" I say looking away.
"Are you sure?" He asks leaning slightly to see my face.
"Can I have a hug?" I ask. He smiles and gesture for me to come over. I go and sit down in his lap. My eyes feel heavy but the pain in my throat burns.
"You can have a hug when ever you want" he whispers. I smile.
"Nero..." I say looking up at him.
"Hmm" he mutters his eyes meeting mine.
"I love you" I whisper.
