Naunie gazed through the thick trees, her eyes narrow, and haunting. It was difficult to
spy anything through the dense forest, but Aldrade had said that this is where the
abandoned shack would lie, hidden from the world.
A perfect place to hide... or keep something hidden. She took quiet step forward,
her eyes grazing over every inch of her surroundings before she spotted something strange.
A different texture in the crowded forest.
Naunie adjusted the dead weight on her shoulder, and began to creep towards the shack,
cautious of any animals who might have found their way inside. The door was small, but the
wood was thick and sturdy. Definetly impossible for any ordinary being to break through.
She shoved it open, the smell of dust and mold filling her nose. Inside was a mess of
vines and rough plants clinging to the walls, though right in the center of the shack sat
a metal chair. A strange object in such a nature filled place. She once again moved the
weight on her shoulder to a more comfortable position. A groan was heard afterward, making
She's awakening already. The spell should have lasted three days, yet it's only been
one blasted night. She gingerly lifted the girl from her shoulder and placed her on
the convenient chair, pulling twine from her pocket and binding her wrists behind the
With a sigh, Naunie slid down the wall. She had been walking all night, and was exausted.
The girl needs to lay off the sweets. She's heavier than she looks...
Arionna felt her head spinning, feeling as if she would vomit any second. Her eyes opened
slightly as her head began to burn and her entire body tingle as if it was still asleep as
her mind awoke. Everything was a blurry mess of color. Browns, greens, whites....
everything swirling and mixing into a mess of different tints and shades. She felt groggy,
her mind moving like stagnent pond water.
Naunie........ The thought was slippery, refusing to hold still and stay where it
should. She gritted her teeth, and clenched her toes.
What..... ? Gotta.... focus...
A groan escaped her lips, making the colors that had now grown still move slightly. Red...
white and gold.... those colors stuck out from the soft colors surrounding it. It moved,
seperate from the others.
She opened her eyes farther, making everything spin and twist, but slowly focus. Tiny
fireflies danced in front of her eyes while everything went momentarally dull and fuzzy.
She breathed in sharply as a pain ran up one side of her face, tingling and burning as if
it was on fire. She gasped, closing her eyes tightly before feeling something cold on her
forhead. She opened her eyes, her vision still fuzzy, but clearer than before. Her gut
twisted, making her urge to throw up stronger.
"Naunie..." She whispered, shaking her head.
Naunie grimaced at the girl who struggled to awaken from her spell bound slumber. The girl
whispered her name, shaking her head and groaning.
"Don't make such a fuss." She hissed, grabbing Arionnas' chin and forcing her eyes upward
to Naunies' face. She examined her eyes, the girls pupils tiny and adjusting rapidly.
"You're awkening... how annoying. Now I wont get to rest." She grumbled, releasing her
chin and staking toward the open window, and closing it tightly. She whispered words to
seal it shut, and turned back.
"Now, let's have a chat shall we?"
Arionna stared up at Naunie with wide, confused eyes. She pulled at her bound wrists,
panic raging inside her. The memory of her encounter with Naunie in the Library returned,
frightening her even more.
As did the memory of Orion.
"N-Naunie! I don't know what you're up to... but you won't get far! The castles bound to
know I'm missing by now! And the entire kingdom will be searching for me." She said with a
nervous edge. She ment the statement to be a threat, but it came out weak, and uncertain.
"Yes, I suppose they will. And those fools will be falling over eachother trying to find
you. But, to no avail I'm afriad." She smiled darkly and turned to the door, whispering
words to seal it shut so only she could enter and exit through. Any stranger would burst
into flame, and Arionna simply wouldn't be able to pass though.
Arionna bit the inside of her cheek hard to calm herself. Her breathing had gone ragid,
and she was furiously tugging at the rope binding her hands together.
"What do you want?! Why are you doing this?! Just let me go alright? I promise I won't
tell! I-I'll say that I took a walk and got lost... please you can fix this!" Naunie spun
around, storming over and slapping her face. Arionna cried and and felt a metalic taste
fill her mouth, her cheek burning severely.
"SHUT UP! You're not leaving this shack! You're going to sit here and rot until I can have
some use of you again" Naunie spat. Arionna looked back up with watery eyes, a feeling of
betrayal twisting her stomach.
"Naunie..... what's happened to you..." She whispered, feeling tears pooling under her
eyes and sliding down her cheak, making it sting.
"I..... I don't know who you are... but you're not Naunie..." Her eyes narrowed, her voice
intense. Naunie sneered down at the foolish girl.
"I'll teach you a lesson girlie. Indeed I will. You're not in your safe little palace
anymore." She clenched her teeth and yanked on Arionnas' hair roughly.
"It's me alright. And you'd better get used to it. Because this is the only face you'll
see for a very VERY long time. If you don't want to starve, you'll do everything I tell
you to, including kill anyone who comes through that door, or window. I don't care who it
is, even if it's a damn mouse!" She smiled.
"It'll be easy, they'll already be on fire, so all you'd have to do is make sure they
don't use a spell or burn the place down. You of course cannot leave. It's simply an
unbreakable barriar. Understand?" She gave her injured cheek a good squeeze before
releasing her hair and walking towards the door.
Arionna sat, her face burning harshly. A dread filling every inch of her.
"Hail... Orion... they'll find me...." She breathed meakly, squeezing her eyes shut. She
blocked the manic laughter than filled her ears.
"Sure they will darling."
Naunie turned away from the door, pulling something from her pocket. It was a photo.
"See this? THIS, is what is going to get you're little friends to help me. Not you. You'll
be stuck in here even after they know where you are. Who knows? Maybe I won't even need
you. What'll happen to you then hmm? Maybe you'll just die." She smiled mockingly, sliding
to the ground and crossing her arms.
"Tomorrow morning, I'll set out back to the castle. I'll untie you since you can't leave,
and you can sulk in here on your own." She closed her eyes, the image of the girls eyes,
so empty, and without hope still in her mind.
Arionna sat, still as a statue with her eyes shut, appearing to be asleep. Her cheek lay
on her shoulder, the injured one faceing up, covered by her tangled hair. All night she
had sat without emotion. A feeling of numbness wriggling its' way into her chest.
Movment. Naunie was awake. She stiffened, keeping her eyes shut tight.
Those cold hands reached out and grabbed ahold of her arms, one reaching down to her
Now. Suddenly Arionnas' entire body burst into hot flames. Her eyes open in a flash
to see Naunie falling backwards to the ground, crying out in pain. She held her left arm
tightly. Arionna could see the skin blackening. She had got her.
Naunies' eyes snapped open, and she stood with burning eyes.
"Very good. I see you've been taught a few things in my absense." She smiled tightly,
still wincing from the pain.
"But not enough." She snatched up Arionnas hair, forcing her to her feet, and drug her
over to the wall kicking and screaming.
"You still havn't learned.. tsk tsk." Without hesitation, she smashed Arionnas' head into
the wall, making her crumple to the floor unconcious. Naunie smiled at her handiwork, and
whispered the words that would heal her wound. To her dismay, the burn had left a large
red scar that she was unable to fix.
Shrugging, she checked to make sure the precious photo was in her pocket, and left the
Current, and temporary Arionna-
