Her roar shakes the earth. Animals scream and flee before her. She wriggles. She pounces and brings down one of countless flying beasts underneath her mighty paws. This beast, however, has a familiar look in her eyes. Her voice, as she screams, is also familiar, bringing memories of another life, another time, another being…
Still, she bites. She bites into flesh and then bone. The pterodactyl screams again and writhes underneath her paws, but it’s useless. She can’t escape her.
Kimberly breaks Trini’s scream. Panting, she looks at her through wild eyes. “Kim! I -- I -- “ She wants to sob, but she can’t find the tears. She’s too scared, too shocked --
“Whatever you’re dreaming,” her girlfriend responds calmly, “I’m fine, and so are you. Now come here.” She kisses Trini’s temple before laying her back down beside her. Her body curls protectively around hers. She nuzzles her neck, kisses her again.
“Try to get some sleep,” she says, but Trini can’t sleep, not again. She still hears her own roars, still feels Kimberly writhing beneath her. Despite the protective comfort of the arms wrapped lovingly around her, Trini knows she won’t sleep another wink tonight even as Kim dozes back off.
