Goodnight



The thunder rumbled far off, its tantrum having been thoroughly thrown. Erratic, shallow breathing had steadied into the slow and deep rhythm of heavy slumber. Young Master was finally asleep, his slate hair falling across his shut eyes. His expression so still and peaceful and vulnerable, much like the cursed princess in the book Rachel used to read. The demon butler rose from his seat on the edge of the too-large bed and extinguished the firelight, leaving his sleeping Master in darkness.

In the hall, he paused and listened.

The sounds of nighttime reached his ears, the snoring of slumbering servants, creaking and groaning of the house settling. He wondered if this is what the castle had sounded like when their princess slept. He would have the night to himself to prepare for the following day, as always. Hopefully, to himself.

His pocket watch, the one that was purely part of his butler aesthetic, silver with the Phantomhive crest engraved in it as though the boy who gave it to him dared to lay claim and control time itself. That pocket watch of which he had no particular care for told him it was twenty to the twelfth hour, hardly the Witching Hour. Then again, the Witching Hour was just another faerie tale Humans told themselves to lull themselves into security. Another long night in a seemingly unending series of long nights for the demon that never sleeps. The dragon guarding his prize.

He checked the other watch, the one that did have significance to him. Polished black, the symbol of their contract was engraved in purple. He clicked it open, examining it prediction with a tightening of his lips. This watch did not tell the time it was, it told the time until the contract's completion.
