Vesperia, Karol, Bare Skin

Title: Break the Cold
Author: walking_forward
Canon: Tales of Vesperia
Spoilers: Blades of Zopheir - First time
Characters: Karol
Rating: G
Warnings: none


Never before had Karol felt such cold penetrating invasively into his skin and gnawing slowly down his spine until it rattled his bones in hopes of breaking his heart.

His hands felt numb and never before had he felt so bare as he ran alone.

I can't run away; his lips chapped.

He thought about it; why run when all he had was here?

You could only live a life that was worth protecting.

Karol felt their presence behind him and their voices reaching through binding frozen cold.

His heart beat faster.

Blood burned.

Karol soared and broke the cold.
