How The Wraith and The Nurse got together.
This is what i think happened in the realm for The Nurse and The Wraith to create that iconic Valentines Day poster. Please keep all "Or the art team" comments to yourself. Thanks.
In the realm of The Entity, The Wraith sat in his own pocket, cleaning his weapon and tuning his bell. He had just come back from a massacre, giving The Entity more souls to feast on. The Entity was a sort of caring god, but at the same time it hated not being fed, sometimes punishing The Wraith excessively should he fail to bring him any souls. Suddenly, their was a faint howl, a whisper, a hum in the dark. The Wraith lifted his head and stopped what he was doing, knowing he was in the presence of something terrifying, he instantly knelt down and could feel the sharp tendril of the being that created this realm, her heavenly humming sending the trees on his head stiff and making his skin crawl. A bloodstained sack fell before his eyes and with that, the humming, and the dark fog was gone. The Wraith opened the sack and looked in awe as he was rewarded for all his hard work. A new weapon and some clothing to resemble that of some kind of ghost, or a phantom, the weapon puzzled him however has it had a big open cup of some sort, as if something needed to be inserted into it. perhaps, it was a drinking cup? The Fog surrounded The Wraith, as he realized it was time for a trial, he put his new clothes on and garnished his weapon as he arrived in the Father Campbell Chapel, only this time. He was alone, Well, Not yet.
The Nurse sat staring at the survivors in the campfire, she wanted to go into another trial and bring more souls to be harvested, she knew that each time she went into a vegetable like state, she would be rewarded greatly. Although her power caused her great pain, she knew that she was doing it for a good cause. But this time their was a whisper, a faint groan. The Nurse turned slightly and felt something was watching her, she knew who it was though, and didn't turn around. She could feel the tendrils taking her pillowcase off, revealing her reddish hair, she didn't open her eyes though, The Entity then gave her something new, a small blindfold, she opened her eyes and instantly grew accustomed to it she looked down and saw a bloodstained sack, the humming was gone and she opened the sack, just in time for the dark fog to appear around her, she put on her sack and looked at her weapon, brandishing it and running her finger across the edge, blunt, but sharp at the tip. She opened her eyes through her blindfold, Father Campbells Chapel, a reminder of what she once was, she floated to the center to see the environment looking kind of shimmery, she wheezed, and with the hit of his bell, The Wraith made himself appear out of nothing.
The Wraith and The Nurse stared at each other, The entity did this for them, it knew of a day that the real world celebrated known as "Valentines Day" and decided to do something special for the two of them, knowing that they both harbored feelings, and since they have been doing good in the trials, felt the need to reward them. The Wraith inched his way towards her, as did The Nurse, leaving a trail of black ash behind her. He rubbed his arm across her cold cheek as he could slightly see her eyes through the blindfold, She did the same, admiring his look, The wraith then showed her his weapon, but frowned as it had something open on top of it. The Nurse then had an idea, it would hurt, but at the same time it would fill the hole. The process was painful, but The Wraith now had something to put into the cup of his weapon, a symbol, that He would always have her heart in the palm of his hands. The Wraith put his right arm around her waist, gripping his weapon with his left. The Nurse put her hand across his shoulder, as the lights around the area turned a bright red, The Entity, while not showing itself, watched, and let them enjoy this wonderful moment together, on this very special day.
