Summary: Zetsu's bug comes out! :o Luckily, Stella's there to help. ♥
Warnings: Um..... gore?
His eyes peeled open with a groan soon enough, greeted by darkness, relative warmth, and a burning pain centered in his abdomen, where he could feel the insect busily working away. The exhaustion was palpable, hanging over him thick and freezing like an icy-soaked down comforter, lead weighing down his limbs and head. He would have loved nothing more than to go back to sleep, but the pain wouldn't let him--and he was finding, with something like terror, that he could barely move. He could barely even panic properly--it was largely psychological horror that played itself out now, as his heartbeat still plodded along, so slowly he might have seemed still asleep, having a hard time getting enough air to accommodate being awake at all.
Noises of effort turned into a long, guttural whine as the pain increased exponentially. Zetsu squirmed urgently, hardly even thinking, pure effort and a flood of adrenaline forcing stiff, deathly cold muscles into halting cooperation that his body really wasn't ready for. He managed to push himself out of his nest of blankets at least, crawl-lurching out into the freezing air of the room proper and staggering towards the door. The panic-fueled motion gave out at that point, resisted by the chill in the air and the damage being done inside him; still-weak limbs buckled beneath him, and he collapsed near the door, crying out in pain as the insect reached the outer wall of muscle and flesh to begin tunneling through it.
