I may have dragged the prompt on way too long but I finally finished it OwO now no more series for a while XD I am too lazy for these lately
Here's the first part, here's the second part
[WP] Dreamcatchers need to be emptied from time to time, but with serious caution. You accidentally misread the instructions and can’t contain the...things...anymore
[WP] The dreamcatcher you bought seemed to work, and you never had nightmares again. Tonight, as you prepare for bed, you hear one of its strings snap. Then another. And another…
[WP] Dreamcatchers enable people to sleep well by catching all the nightmares. Dreamcatcher disposal is a dangerous job.
“Holy f*ck Nick, I know you had really bad nightmares but what in the world went on after the car crash” Charlie growled under his breath as he kept lunging towards the black creature. Slash after slash, nothing seemed to damage this one, whereas most creatures he and Sam took care of usually vaporized after a few deep slashes. With this one… Who knows how long he’ll have to take before it’s finally dead.
“Sam! I could use that incantation right about now!!!” As soon as he spotted Sam from the window, he yelled out while backing away from the creature.
“Be down in a sec!” She yelled back as she carefully took a step out of the window ledge. She steadied herself at the edge on the roof. She took a deep breath and let her eyes flutter shut. The moment her eyes opened, they glowed a blinding white and a foreign language poured from her lips. She never once stopped to catch her breath yet when she leapt from the roof, she made it that the pointed end of her staff would plunge deep into the creature.
“I don’t think it’s working!” Charlie grew impatient. The staff was the most powerful thing in their possession and if that wasn’t enough to dissipate this creature, nothing probably will. He took a long look at Nick who seemed to be struggling as well. He probably could feel the creature sapping away all his happiness again “Don’t worry, buddy. We’ll take care of this so that you don’t have to suffer through those nightmares again.”
Charlie soon made a dash for their house. In a panic, his gaze wandered until it fell upon the leather sheath. “Never thought I’d use you” As he pulled out the blade, the crystal embedded sword came into view. “Let’s hope you really work” With one final look at the blade in his hands, he then charged while reciting the very same foreign incantation Sam had been reciting all this time. As the crystals touched the black mass, sparks of electricity shot up and white lightning like flashes soon came after. The crystals and Sam’s high level incantation were working. A few minutes of the mass bubbling, and the black mass exploded, spreading its strings and thick sludge everywhere.
A pained groan could be heard from the mass's larger body. Charlie really thought there was more to deal with, but when Sam’s hand came to view, he let out a sigh of relief and helped his sister out.
“That was the worst thing I ever tried to kill-” She said in a whine as she trudged over to Nick who still lay unconscious on the ground “You better make sure you clean up this mess when you wake up”
Charlie could only chuckle as he made his way to the sleeping figure. They hoisted him up and carried him to the couch where they allowed him to rest. As they both gazed at their friend, they couldn’t help but feel proud that he finally had such a peaceful expression on his face.
“When he wakes up, you have to explain what we do to him”
Charlie nodded “Yeah but when he wakes. Right now… we should get this gunk off. The ones outside will evaporate anyways”
Cleaning up took a while, Luckily Nick woke up when the black mass was gone and it seemed like nothing ever happened on their front lawn. It was a curious event but they still struggled to explain that they cleaned dreamcatchers and other negative energies that come to life. Charlie felt bad that he tried to deny this side of his life from his best friend but when Nick insisted that he be taught what they do, Charlie then understood that he should have done so when they first met. Nick was determined to learn their ways. Years later, the trio became known as the most fearsome groups of shamans in existence. There was no nightmare nor creature they couldn’t counter.
Okay, the ending was rather rushed but I really couldn't think of another way to end this and I was too lazy to go into detail about his training orz ;;-;;
