Kiara to Rory: Demons

Eyes are the windows to the soul... Inspired, obviously, by Demons by Imagine Dragons...

"...look into my eyes, it's where my demons hide, it's where my demons hide... Don't get too close, it's dark inside, it's where my demons hide, it's where my demons hide... your eyes they shine so bright, I wanna save that light..." -Demons by Imagine Dragons.

your eyes, dark as they are, 

are so bright, they blind mine.

mine, light as they are,

are hiding dark secrets.

Rory looks over at Kiara as she takes off her jacket, revealing a T-shirt with a tiger's face on it, a tiny kitten below it. His eyes freeze on her wrists and forearms, and he asks about the scars even as she hides them.

"Don't look at them, please," she whispers.

"What are they?"

"The past."

"Was it really that bad?"

"You don't want to know."

"It might help to talk about it."

"What if I said I don't want you to know?"

"Then I'd ask why."

There's a pause as she bites her lip and calms down.

"I don't want you to leave me..."

"Why would I leave?"

"Because you don't want to deal with all the lingering effects it had on me..."

His hand lands on her wrist and she flinches.

"I won't leave. Please talk to me."

"Okay... but I have a lot of demons."
