Universe: AU Shinigami!Sheena. And Zelos can see the death?
Characters: Sheena and Zelos. Slight hints of Sheelos, you’ve been warned.
Mode: Zelos’ PoV. Angst for lots. Trigger Warning for Suicide and Character Death.
Long story short, canariae gave me this wonderful idea due to a character (of another series), called 椎菜, which is pronounced as “Shiina” and means “Death”. Also need to thank incoherentelegy and sunset-wings that helped me a lot developing the idea, too!
Anyway, hope you enjoy it!
Velvet eyes have always judged me since my birth. My father’s, my mother’s, my sister’s, the nobles’, and even my own ones reflected every time I checked myself in front of the mirror. It isn’t the kind of nice look I’ve wanted to receive when I was a kid, but I grew soon used to it with how living in a spoiled place like Meltokio was. Always being judged, by every movement I made and how I behaved. Being the Chosen meant being the centre of all the looks, after all.
That chance, though. A different pair of eyes judged me in a very different way, and for the very first time in my life. While I remember I’ve seen them before, during my father’s funeral, it was indeed the first moment I felt them penetrate my soul in a direct, dangerously scarlet gaze; watching me so close, and as if they knew I was afraid of them and what was happening.
