When I got back to my house I made a call
by an old radio.
“Hello” said a voice on the other end
“Hi it’s John Edwell here to report vital information on an attack on the rebel
“Just wait a moment while I get the Capitan” said the voice. There was silence
for a few monento on the other end.
“Hello this is Capitan Rosko, I here you have vital information” said a main on
the other end
“Yes I do sir” I replied, “Base 5-E will be attacked in two days, and
unfortunately I supplied them with a way that they could track all the tunnels”
“Why would you do that!” said Captain Rosko
“So I could get a higher role in the palace, and it worked! I’m now a low rank
general, or so I’m told” I said, there was a shots amount of silence on the
“Well done you are progressing fast! How old are you again?” asked Captain
“Well good job again”
“Sir you must evacuate a small amount of people, mainly the people that hold
vital information. Make sure you leave most of the kids behind or they’ll
“Righto then, I will take you advice, I and some others will leave before the
two days are up”
“Thank you sir”
“Goodbye” I said, and then the line went dead.
The next day I was I the palace when a maid
came up to me
“John Edwell?” she asked
“Yes” I said
“You are wanted in training room five. Come this way” said the maid
The maid lead me to an extremely large room with large targets all around the
edge. Next to the doors where racks with bows and quivers on them. There where
the two guards I saw yesterday at either side of the door. In the centre of the
room were two people, the Haunted Warrior and General Grovarge.
“Ah good you here!” said the Haunted Warrior as the maid left the room, “Tom go
stand over there” she said as she pointed to a target at the end of the side of
the wall closest to the door.
General Grovarge walked over to the target, “Here” he said with this back
“Yes just there” she said as she drew arrow from her quiver and lined it up.
“Ok” he said then as he turned around the Haunted Warrior released an arrow and
it trimmed some of the hair on his head. There was a little bit of hair
sticking out from where the arrow was imbedded in the target. General Groverge
went white. He opened his mouth to say something but the Haunted Warrior beat
him to it.
“Run piggy run” she said as she notched another arrow. The general ran, but he
obviously wasn’t thinking because he ran in the opposite direction from the
door. She let another arrow fly and it just missed his back, to my surprise the
general sped up.
“Help! Help” the general cried, but the guard at the door didn’t move. She let
another arrow fly, but like the last it just missed his back. She let arrows
continue to fly, they all just missed his back.
“Watch this” she said when the general was almost at the balcony. She let an
arrow fly, but this time it skimmed his chest. The general grinded to a halt
painted, and then he fell over. She walked over to him, stepped over him and
yanked out the arrow imbedded in the wooden railing of the balcony.
“You- killed- me” painted the general
“No, I merely cut your shirt and jacket”
“But- I- feel- like- I’m- dying” painted the general
she laughed, “No Tom, that’s called fatigue, you’re just exhorted from exercising.
And trust me you needed it!” she said as she walked back over him.
“If- this- is you- training- than- I- don’t- like- it” he painted
“No this isn’t my training” she said
“Yeah, mine’s dogging bullets instead, arrows are too easy”The general gasped and passed out.
“That was fun!” she said sounding happy as she walked over to where one of her
other arrows where imbedded
“So it is true!” I said unable to stop myself
“What’s true?” she asked not looking at me, but at her arrow that she was
trying to get out of the target.
“You enjoy causing other people pain!” I said
She gave a soft laugh, “Him” she gestured to the general “He’d have a scratch
at the most! And besides he’s been annoying me for years he deserves that at
“But you were trying to hit him!”
“Look around, dose it really look like I was trying to hit him?”
“What do yo-” I looked around at all of the targets, all of the arrows aside
from the one that she shot first hit dead centre on the targets. “You … what?”
“I was seeing how fast I could hit the targets. I had to wait for him to run by
him first. So I wasn’t actually aiming for him, other that the first but I was
aiming for his hair, and the last one I was aiming for his shirt and jacket. So
I was just scaring him”
“But what about all the people that you’ve killed! They didn’t deserve to die!
Did they!” I was almost shouting. She turned to face me. I flinched; I was
scared of what she’d do to me.
“No, no they didn’t.” she said her voice full of sorrow “Very few of the people
I’ve killed deserved to die”
“Then why did you kill them”
“I wouldn’t if I had choice” she said as she kept collecting the arrows in the
“What do you mean if you had a choice” I said my anger rising
She looked away “You won’t understand”
“What do you mean I won’t “
“No one dose, there is only one person that dose” she said, “and he isn’t here
because this place!” she shouted and stabbed the target with the arrow she was
holding. I was startled by her sudden rage. She pulled the arrow out and stuffed it in the
quiver. Then she slammed the bow and quiver on their racks then stormed out if
the room with the guards trailing her.
This is a part from Mistical's life, she hates it there but you get to see different sides of her. She can be very moody at this time and it is because of her experiences during her time at this place. These event's take place before she escapes the place, but it's here that you can see her at her fullest. This is where all of her emotions come out; anger, depression, love, loss and so much more. So as you may of guessed this is about emotion, but there is violence because of the rage! It will be mainly from other people's perspective of her. And in this place she is often referred to as the Haunted Warrior And so i shall actually present you with what i have done!
I walked into the training room. It was massive;
there was every kind of things that you would need to do any kind of training
or physical activity. There were two guards standing in front of the training
area with some wooden spinning training dummies. A dark figure was weaving in
and out of the dummies with impossibly quick speed. The figure was hitting the
dummies in every spot that could cause a deadly or painful blow on a human.
They dogged every spinning fist, blade, mace and other weapons. I move to enter
“State your name and business” said one of the guards. I managed to tear my
eyes from the figure.
“John Edwell, assistant to General Govarge. I’m here to tell the Haunted
Warrior that the general must see her eminently, it is urgent business.” I said
“I wouldn’t recommend that right now!” said the first guard
“Oh definitely not! She’s in one of her moods!” said the second guard
“But is really important and the general must see her now!” I said
“Unless it’s the queen than it’s not a good idea to annoy her right now!” said
the first guard
“You’re not here to recommend me to do anything and if I’m late the general
will have my hind!”
“Whatever you say! But listen to this first, the last person to annoy her when
she way in one of these moods lost a finger!” said the first guard
“Yeah that’s why we’re her to watch her when she trains! For the safety of
people like you; not for her, she doesn’t need our protection!” said the second
guard, the first nodding in agreement
“Yeah whatever! I need to talk to her!” I said as I walked past them. I was
surprised that they didn’t stop me.
“Don’t say we didn’t warn you!” said the second guard
I walked over to the edge of the area for the spinning dummies.
“Um … Haunted Warrior, the gener-” I was suddenly on the ground with a sword
pointing to my neck. I dragged my eyes away from the sword to look at it’s
owner. A tall, lean, muscular woman with dark bronzy gold hair tied in a
ponytail. She wore a black skin tight body suit with silver lines around the
chest and on the fount of her legs. She wore a black mask with silver where her
eyes should have been, and a knee long dark grey coat.
“What do you want?” She growled
I gulped, “G-g-general G-grovarge w-wants to s-see you im-immanently” I just
managed to force the words out.
“Boys what have I told you about letting people talk to me while I’m training!”
she yelled to the guards
“We tried to stop him, we warned him that you were in a bad mood and everything
but he wouldn’t stop” said the first guard
“Ahh” she growled, “What does he want” she said sounding annoyed
“I d-don’t know!”
“Stupid generals always annoying me” She muttered “Eh, well I guess I shouldn’t
shoot the messenger” she said as she took her sword away from my throat, as she
did the blade retracted into the hilt, then the cross-guard folded into met
each other where the blade use to be, and she put it on her belt. She walked
over to a table with a bottle of water on, grabbed it that came back.
“Well” She said, “Are we going or not?”
“I-I … um yes” I said as I scrambled up “He is in the planning room”
I walked out of the training room a little ahead of her, and the guards.
“Do you two have to come?” She asked looking at the guards
“Yes we do, you were just in one of you moods and we need to stay with you for
at least another twenty minutes to make sure you’re in a good mood” said the
She sighed “Fine!” she lifted up the bottom of her mask so we could see her
mouth, “Oh and next time I’m training with knifes or a bow and arrows remind me
to get General Grovarge to help me
with target practice” she said a cruel smile playing on her lips. She lifted
the water bottle and drained it of its contents. As we neared a bin she tossed
it in like a basketball player,
“GOAL” she screeched as it landed in, I jumped at her reaction, “High-five!”
she said as he held up her hand, I just stared, “Oh come on don’t leave me
hanging!” she said her playful smile slipping a little, so I decided to
high-five her before she threatened me with her sword again. She turned around
with her hands up and the guards high-fived her straight way. Is this really the woman that jumped on me
minutes ago? If so she’s acting so different, and so much happier! This shows that she has no regrets for killing
all those people!
They walked into a large room, with a large table in the middle; there were a
number of chairs around the edge of the room and some around the table. There
was two men at the table both of witch where overweight, one had brown hair the
other blond. There where maids and assistance where standing around the edge of
“Play along” whispered the Haunted Warrior, she had pulled her mask down so no
one could see her mouth.
“What is so important that you had to
annoy me now!” She almost yelled, but she didn’t need to yell for her voice to
project across the room. Everyone froze; she was the second highest in command,
the only one who had higher authority that her was Queen Elian. The ruler of
the world and her warrior where the two people that you didn’t want to mess
with! Lucky the generals where use to her bad moods so they knew how to respond
“We have believe that we have located a rebel base!” said the one with brown
hair, or more commonly known as General Grovarge.
“So what, don’t I capture enough rebels? Is what I do not good enough?” she replied
her tone range with authority and anger. God
she sounds pissed! If I didn’t know better I’d almost be wetting my pants now!
To make it look more convincing I edged way. Oh well seeing the general’s face makes this worth it! The general
had gone white; they were falling for the act.
“N-no it’s not that you don’t do enough, y-you do more than enough but the queen want’s all of the rebels
gone or captured.” said General Grovarge
“We were informed by a spy in the rebel base of where it is located and the
majority of the entries and exits.” Said the man with blond hair, or more
commonly known as General Morbiouse.
“Is the spy on our side?” she asked
“Wha- yes, of course he’s on our side!” said General Morbiouse
“What if he’s a double, spy?” she continued
“No he’s our spy!” said General Morbiouse
“Or a quadruplet spy?” she said
“I ashore you that he’s on our side!” said General Morbiouse
“You ashore me? Are you one hundred precent sure he’s on our side?”
“I- … um I- … No I’m not one hundred precent sure” he said his voice had grown
weaker, unsure, “But I’m ninety precent sure!” he said his voice strong again
“NINETY!” she shouted and everyone in the room jumped “I’d expect you to be
ninety-five, not ninety!”
“W-well I-I’m not sure that it’s ninety, it could be ninety-five” he said, his
voice small, he also appeared to me shrinking, for a guy that big I didn’t
think that was possible.
She grunted “Fine let’s see what information this spy has” she said as she walked over to the table. I didn’t notice
it till then but everyone appeared to be holding their breath and they all
seemed to let it out at once, so it seemed like even the room itself let out a
deep sigh. The table was like a very large iPad, so they could have maps on it
and move it with their hands. The Haunted Warrior threw herself into planning
an attack on the rebel base, and she became serious, not the deadly serious but
the serious that wants to do a good job. I zoned out while they were talking,
because it was interesting but it wasn’t necessary to listen till the end when
they had actually decided on an attack.
“So what do you think John?” at the sound of my name I came back to reality
“Sorry what where you saying?” I asked
The Haunted Warrior sighed, “We were talking on how we could use my hearing to
and advantage to find all the exits to the base” everyone knew that the a
Haunted Warrior had heighted hearing, people just didn’t know how sensitive it
was, and that was the same for me. I thought about this for a moment
“We could bring fans” I said
She cocked her head “Fans?” she repeated
“Yes and we could turn them on and if you can hear the wind moving through the
base then you could tell where the exits will be” I said
“That is a ridicules idea” said General Grovarge
“No … it could actually work” said the Haunted Warrior
“Wh-what?” said General Grovarge
“Oh be quiet your just jealous that you in all your years didn’t think of it!” she
said “ You know what just of that you can now be officially on this team, … sort
of thing …” she threw her hands up, “Ah what I mean is you will now be a low
rank general! And you will help out with our attacks on the rebels! Yay
congratulations” she said as she came towards me and put out hand for me to
shake it. I shook it her grip was strong. And in my opinion the generals took
it well, they were as pale as a sheet and said nothing.

“Bye everyone, have a good day!” said
Adelle as she opened the front door
“Adelle wait!” said Tony, he was muscular, tanned from working in sorcerers
gardens and was a bit over medium height. His dark brown hair was cut short and
his green eyes looked sad.
“um I wanted to give you this” He pulled out a sheathed dagger “It was going to
be you mother’s … but considering resent events I’m giving it to you” he said,
as he did Adelle saw the sorrow in his eyes
“Thank you dad! I’ll keep it safe”
He gave a small laugh “No, it’s to keep you safe”
Adelle smiled “Thanks dad, I’ll make sure it keeps me safe!” then she closed
the door and slipped the dagger into her basket. She’d look at it when she was
in the castle. She started walking towards the castle, what would her dad think
if he knew that see was going to fight some resistance today? She hadn’t told
him. She hadn’t told anyone, but if her dead body was brought back they’d know.
God what had she gotten herself into! It was early in the morning and barely
any sorcerers where out, but this was the mortal’s time to get up and go to
work, so there was lots of them scurrying around, trying to get out of the way
before the majority of sorcerers got up. Adelle was walking quickly like
everyone else. They didn’t know she was a sorcerer because she wore cloths like
them and hurried around like them. Adelle didn’t mind.
“Morning Adelle” said a male voice. Adelle turned to see a man in his thirties
pulling a cart of fruit.
“Morning Gorge” she said “How are you this morning?” he obviously didn’t know
the she was a sorcerer otherwise he would of stayed away.
“I’m grand, how about you?”
About to walk into a possible death sentence “I’m fine” says Adelle
“Good to know! … Where’s your mother?”
Adelle hesitated “She’s dead”
“What? But I saw her last week and she looked fine! When did she die? How did
“She died a week ago … as for how” She swallowed as she remembered the other
woman’s dead body, “Well you don’t want to know”
“Was it really that bad?”
“Did you get her body back?”
“Yea, it didn’t look too nice. We had her funeral a couple of days after her
“Ah well I’m sorry I brought it up, I just don’t get news to well because I
only come once a week”
“Na its ok you didn’t know”
They reached the castle gates. The gates where open but there where mages
standing in front of it, as per usual.
“Moring Adelaide” said one of the mages as he and his companion stepped out of
there way. He scowled at Gorge, but obviously recognised him.
“Morning” she responder
“What was that about?” asked Gorge when they were out of ear shot
“Nothing to be concerned about” said Adelle
“Ok if you say so” said gorge putting down the cart “Can you help me open the
“Sure” said Adelle, they were at the back of the castle, the doors where the
loading doors for the kitchen food. They both went up to the doors and opened
“Thanks for that” said Gorge as he went to his cart and started to unload the
“You’re welcome” said Adelle as she walked to the door to go to the storage
area to put what she didn’t knead in her pigeon whole. As she looked back she
saw a maid whispering to Gorge, his eyes locked onto hers. His eyes were wide,
afraid, he found out. Adelle sighed and looked way, another friend lost because
of being a sorcerer. Feeling lonely Adelle put her basket in her pigeon whole.
She took out her coat and the dagger, she couldn’t leave her dagger in there it
would only cause trouble. She walked to the training room, where Death said to
meet her today.
“Hey Dell! Your early” said Death
“Meh well this is the time that I usually get here”
“Are you ready for today?”
“Ha! No, defiantly not! God, I’m gona be luck it I live! Let alone help you
people with your usual success rate” says Adelle
“Do you want to know the real reason for our success?” asked Death with a grin,
“Enthusiasm! That’s the secret … or at least mine. You see if your enthusiastic
about killing people then you more likely to succeed!” said Death with a
Adelle tilts her head “No! Just No! I will not be enthusiastic about killing
“Soot yourself” chimes Deathstill
grinning “You might want to change, we’ve got fifteen minutes to meet Lord Vile
and the rest of the mages near the gate.”
“Ok” said Adelle striping off her dress. Adelle puts her coat on and gets out
the dagger, it was on a belt so she put the belt on.
“What’s that?” Asks Death
“Oh this” I reply pointing to the sheathed dagger, “It’s a dagger”
“Cool where did you get it?”
“It was a gift”
“Ok. Can I see?”
“I guess” Adelle said as she pulled the dagger out of its sheath. It was
wonderful; the metal was one of the strongest metals known. The handle had
black, rubbery stuff that gave it more grip; it was covered in and was moulded
to fit a hand. The blade was only a little longer than the handle but the tip
was flexed up. On the top was a jagged section to cut through tuff things.
Underneath near the handle was a hook like part of the blade that could help to
cut through rope. It was a short blade but it looked so deadly. Dad you have
out done yourself Adelle thought.
“Oh My God! Please tell me you know who made that!”
“What! Why?” Adelle started panicking if they knew her dad gave her a weapon
that could be use agents sorcerers he would be punished!
“So I can get them to make me one of course!” replied Death
Adelle was a little surprised at this “Um … no I don’t”
“Oh, that’s Ok. Can you ask the person who gave it to you?” said Death looking
“Um … sure I’ll ask” said Adelle, but the thing was she actually knew who made
it; her dad. He works in the black smith sometimes because he likes to make his
own tools for gardening rather than buying them. The owner of the black smith
lets him use anything whenever he wants, but he has to pay for the materials he
uses. In return he has to help the owner of the black smith for one day for
every tool he makes. Which is a good deal because if it’s a busy day Tony will
get payed some money for helping, and Tony’s tools are better quality and more
to his liking that the shop made tools.
“Ok thanks for that! God who ever got you that must have a lot of money because
that looks like excellent quality!” said Death.
“Yea” Adelle mumbled as she sheathed the dagger.
“We should head down to where the other mages are” said Death
“Yea Ok, I’ve got to drop my dress at my pigeon hole to!”
“OK I’ll come”
Adelle hesitated “Ok if you want to”
“This way” said Adelle as she led the way to the maid’s pigeon holes.
“I’ve never been through this part of the castle before” said Death as they
walked into a narrow hall
“Hea yea I wouldn’t of expected you to have been here before”
“So are you saying you know your way around the castle than I do?”
“Yea basically. Although I haven’t been in as many of the important rooms that
you have, but I know my way around the halls, so yea I guess I am”
“So are you saying that maids know there way around the castle better than I
Adelle gave a small laugh “Yes, Yes I am!”
“That’s insulting!” said Death, as Adelle burst out full on laughing. Death
gave Adelle a few moments then cleared her throat.
“Oh sorry, I just realise that I know my way around your home better than you
do!” said Adelle with a massive grin “To me that is very amusing” Death looked
at her and crossed here arms
“No knead to point it out” said Death as Adelle stopped at a wide door
“Ok now we put you dogging skills to the test” said Adelle pointing to the door
“Try and beat me to the other side without getting people to make way for you,
so now magic and no jumping on things”
“What’s behind the door? And how will you be able to beat me?”
Adelle grinned “this is how I learned to doge so well. On three, One two –“
“three” said Death bursting open the door to the kitchen and started to make
her way through the crowed. Adelle smiled and plunged after her into the sea of
Adelle lost track of Death but she knew Death wouldn’t be able to navigate her
way through the people. Adelle twisted and danced her way through the crowd to
the other side passing Death on her way. When Adelle reached the other side she
waited for Death.
“Wow that was a work out! But now I see why you were good dogging when you
started training!” Death said panting a little, “But that was fun! Can we do it
“Yea maybe another time, because if we’re meting the other mages at the gates
it will be quicker to exit through the door near the loading area.”
Death pouted “Please”
“Sorry no, not unless you want to explain to Lord Vile why we’re late! Cause
hell as I’m not!”
Death hesitated, “Fine you win”
“Good” said Adelle grinning “This way” Adelle walked to the hall with the
pigeon holes in. “This is mine” said as she put her maid’s dress in it. Adelle
saw people out of the corner of her eye staring at her, she ignored them.
Adelle led the way to the fount garden from there Death took the lead and led
them to the gate. There was about fifteen mages, about seven of them where
physics, Adelle could tell by the white cloak. The rest where other mages where
probably good fighters.
“You took your time!” said a mage a bit louder than necessary. He was short,
and not particularly good looking, he probably shot lasers or had a ranged
attack because he wasn’t wearing a white cloak nor did he look well built like
the other mages.
“Well we were busy” snapped Death
“Actually if I might point out we’re on time, or at least according to what I
was told” said Adelle pointing at a pocket watch she held in her hand.
“Wha- but I-” started the mage
“Enough they’re here now let’s go” It was Lord Vile that spoke, so everyone
“Ok everyone let’s walk” said Death assuming a commanding role. And everyone
“Why are you leading, you’re not even twenty” said the mage, “And you” He said
pointing at Adelle “You’ve only have, what a week training at the most so you
shouldn’t even be here!” Lord Vile glared at him but the mage didn’t notice.
“I’d shut up if I where you” whispered Adelle in the mages ear and nodded in
Lord Vile direction. The mage started saying something but saw Lord Vile and
stoped. Adelle grinned and walked ahead of him and caught up to Death who
obviously didn’t think the mage was worth her time.
“What did you say to make him look like that?” Death asked
“I told him to shut up because Lord Vile was giving him a look”
“Ah that explained how you got him that white! He’s name is Alevin Dagger”
Adelle sniggered at Alevin’s name and Death grinned, “and he thinks that he is
the best and one of the most important people, other than Mevolent and his generals.
Although that’s not true, he in the actual rank of things is a low rank mage
with in the castle, the only reason he’s even in the castle is because he has
can throw daggers of light. And that is useful for ranged attack. That is the
only reason he’s here”
“Yea I can see that he’s not really much of a use anywhere else, unless he
starts working out!”
“Exactly” said Death as they stopped in fount of the barge. “On we hop!” said
Death gesturing to a ramp up to the barge.
Um yea this is a story i had a dream about a little back. Yea but i think it's more based on the 'Hero's of Olympus' series by Rick Riordan and the 'Fallen Moon' series by K.J Taylor.
I hope you like it so far!
woke up somewhere in a thick forest. I pushed myself up. My left arm eked, then
I looked at it
“Shit” I said, “Oh crap”
My shirt sleeve had three long gashes at the top with blood all over it. I
looked under it dreading what I would see. There was dried blood all over my arm;
it looked no more than an few hours old. I took of my fur vest and pealed of my
shirt. I saw no cuts, no gashes. There was a small stream nearby, I could hear
it. I trudged over to it, my body felt exhausted. I washed off the blood, and
all I saw on my tanned skin was three scars where the cuts should have been.
Now I was confused. Since my arm was all right I decided to wash off some of
the blood that soaked my sleeve.
It was then I realised that other than not knowing where I am, I don’t know my
name! Have any memories of my life! There was some, but when I tried to grasp
them they slipped even further away. All I could actually recall was that I was
eighteen, and a male … but that part I could figure out just by looking down. I
could remember how to read, wright, and all the skills, but just nothing
“Dam it” I mutter, as I get up I look at myself. I’m wearing denim jeans, and a
belt around my waist, there is two pouches on it a larger one, use to store
thing in and a smaller one for money. No weapon, dam. I feel a little naked
without a weapon especially in this forest. I put on my shirt and start
walking. I let my body go where ever it’s going, because my mind has no clue. I
count the money in my pouch, twenty dollars, a good amount to be carrying
around, while it might not be able to by me a weapon it will be able to buy me
some food. The rest I’ll keep.
Soon I glimpse the edge of the forest … or a clearing, ether way there both
good. As I get closer I see that it’s a town. Not the biggest town I’ve seen, … if it’s not than what is, I try
to grasp the memory but it slips away.
Rohard, that’s the name of the town, I can see all the way down the main street
to the massive sparkling lake, the lake that is the largest know in the five
kingdoms. Kinofen, Lanage, Angafor, Grangofo and Dilliane. In the lake was so
large that it was the size of Dillane, the smallest kingdom of them all. All
five of the kingdoms had land at the edge of Finder Lake. I currently know I
was in Kinofen, the largest and the most powerful of all the kingdoms.
“Well at least I know where I am” I mutter
The town is a decent sized town the buildings look weather beaten but still look
sturdy. Most of the building where made of wood but most houses, where made out
of stone and wood, probably to prevent them from burning down easily.
I walked onto the main street, I got a couple of odd looks but I was otherwise
There was a bakery close to the docks. I could smell the bread, oh god I was
hungry! I stood in front of the bakery trying to decide wether to get a big
loaf of bread or to get a bag of pastries.
“HELP ME! SOMEBODY HELP ME PLEASE!” somebody cried out. Everyone spun around to
see where the screaming was coming from. There was a girl in the lake, with a
water dragon surrounding her. It tugged her under. Then let her come back up
“HELP ME PLEASE!”
I didn’t think I just started undoing my vest and ran to the dock. I threw it off
and pulled my shirt off. I looked around as I undid my belt, nobody but me was
“Dam it” I muttered, I went up to a guy that looked to be in his mid-twenties
and ripped his knife out of his belt.
“HEY!” he said, “GIVE THAT –“I spun on him and had the knife to his throat in
an instant, I coked my head
“Nobody touch my stuff” I said in a clear stern voice “Or they’ll regret it” I
whipped of my belt and put it and my pouches in the pile. I pulled of my shoes
“HELP ME!” the girl cried
“I’m coming” I shouted out, as I ran on the dock. I put the knife between my
teeth and dived into the deep blue water.

Oh God, part 8 all ready! Wow! If I totaled up all of the words that I have written on this it is: 12,309 words! Lots of words! ... not nearly enough to fill one of Derek's books, but still! This is probably the most words that I have written on a story! Thanks to Death, the person that always reads this!
Oh and this one is shorter than average! I tend to try and have at least 1,200 word in each part, but I don't think I will be able to divide the next part up that well! ... although the next part may be a long one! So it could make up for it!
A few days had past, Adelle still cleaned
Lord Vile’s room, but in her spare time instead of cooking she did training.
She was seeing less and less of Sarah, and Sarah was keeping her distance.
Adelle opened the doors to the training room, Death was there standing in fount
of the boxing ring as per usual.
“Hi Death” said Adelle
“Hi Al!” replied Death
“… Just call me Adelle”
“… Ad-elle” Adelle said slowly
“Noooo, My name is Adelle”
“Dell” responder Death, as Adelle face palmed
“Fine whatever, you win!”
“YAY DELL” squealed Death “So Dell,
how are you”
“Meh, I’m alright I guess. How are you?”
“I’m good, I’m great, I’m wonderful!”
“Oh yea I forgot to mention yesterday, but you’re going on your first official
mission in two days!”
“What! Why? I’ve barely had any training!”
“Yes, but you’re doing really well, and I sort of told Mevolent that you were
doing really well and that you should be good to go on your first mission
really soon! So yeaaa”
“What! I’m not that good!”
“Well you are and you can use your abilities really quite well, especially
since you haven’t had any training till recently!”
“Yea but that’s because I would practice it really often!”
“Well you’re going, and don’t worry I’m going with you so you should be fine!
Oh and your friend Mr Grumpy is going to! So you should be perfectly fine!”
“Hu, who’s Mr Grumpy?”
“Mr Grumpy is Mr Grumpy”
“No what’s his name?
“I call him Mr Grumpy”
“I know that but what’s his actual name?”
“Um … I don’t know his true name I’m sorry! … although I don’t think anyone dose
… so that’s not that bad!” as Death replied, Adelle sighed
“Ok then what’s his taken name?”
“Oh his taken name! It’s Lord Vile. He is your friend is he not?”
“Um … I don’t know about that”
“Didn’t you hear,” Adelle swallowed “He killed my mother”
“Oh yea he did to! … sorry!” said Death looking guilty
“It’s ok, I think it was the worst for my dad, you know going home and telling
him that his wife is dead, then telling him that I made a deal with the man
that was responsible for bringing my mother into the situation. And also
explaining that I’m a sorcerer” Adelle looked at her shoes, “And explaining
that I’m responsible for my mother’s death” Adelle remember the look on her
dad’s face, it was of pure shock, then despair overwhelmed it. She hated it; she
hated hurting her dad that way! She hatted hurting him full stop.
Everything was quiet for a couple of moments.
“But you didn’t kill her”
“No, I didn’t but I feel responsible, because I-I was there and, she was the
because of me.”
“I’m sorry about your mother” said Death
Again there was silence
“So what did you do to Lord Vile to get him under your thumb?” asked Death
“He’s not under my thumb” Adelle said sharply
“Right the whole mother incident … but I heard that he did something’s for you,
and he’s fond of you isn’t he?”
“I-I don’t know” said Adelle as she though back he saved her mother, and she
hugged him, he didn’t kill her, he hugged
her back. God what had she gotten herself into, “I didn’t do anything to him”
“Riiiiight, so if you didn’t do
anything to him then how come he likes you?”
Don’t mention the letters said the voice in Adelle’s head “Um … I talk to him,
and I guess he liked it?”
“… Ok” said Death, there was silence for a few moments, “Today you’re going to
try and take me on when you’re smaller”
“Why? I can become bigger than anyone else”
“True, but what if your magic is bound or someone has the same abilities as you
and can be bigger than you? Your will need to know how to defend yourself”
“Ooook then” said Adelle as she walked on the mat
“You have muscles!” exclaimed Death and started rapidly poking Adelle’s thigh
“Ow, ow, ow” said Adelle as she tried to get away from Death “That Hurts!”
Death stopped poking Adelle, then looked at her with a pleading face
“No, you’re supposed to be training me not poking me!”
“Ohhhw, but it’s fun!”
Adelle sighed “Maybe we can use it in training?”
“Yes! We shall!” exclaimed Death obviously pleased that Adelle gave in, “But
Adelle shrunk so she was half a head shorter than Death “Shrink” said Death,
Adelle crossed her arms
“You do realise that my strength will stay the same as what I would be at
“Ah, but this isn’t about strength, this is about height and weight, so shrink”
Adelle shrink till she was a head shorter than Death
“Is this good?”
“Yes” said Death “Ok since your shorter you should go for the areas that you
can hit better, currently that would be the stomach, and if it was a man, the
groin, but I’m not a man so let’s focus on trying to hit the stomach”

Um the offer is still up for all that want to be in this fanfic! If you do want to be in it please post a coment containing this infomation:
Their age, what they looks like and what they are
Their powers, or magical abilities
What they looks like, like what colour hair etc.
What they tends to where
And what side they are on, (Risistance or Mevolent's)
The next day Adelle went to the storage
area, where the maids store their belongings. It’s a hall with pigeon holes all
along it. Only the Pigeon holes hold an individual maid’s belongings in it.
Adelle noticed that today everyone was keeping their distance a little more
than usual. This was not a good sign. Adelle saw Sarah and walked over to her.
“Hi Sarah! How are you?” Adelle asked, Sarah spun around startled, “Oh I’m
sorry I didn’t mean to frighten you! … Do you know why everyone is keeping
“I-I’m good Miss, and I don’t know about them keeping their distance.” replied
“Miss? What’s with the Miss?”
“W-well you are a s-sorcerer are you not?”
“Yes but” Then it occurred to Adelle why everyone was acting so different to
her, she was a sorcerer the maids where mortals and mortals fear sorcerers.
They were all scared of her! “Sarah please call me Adelle, I’m still your
friend I all ways have been and whether I’m a sorcerer on not that’s not going
“I-I’m sorry but it’s going to have to, you can’t have me as a friend any more,
people will think of me a suck up, and my family might get hurt a-and I can’t
risk that, a-an-and I-I’m scared. I’m sorry but we can’t be friends anymore” said
Sarah, she said it so softly, and she sounded so scared.
“Please Sarah, I lost my mum yesterday I-I don’t want to lose you to!” said my
voice as soft as hers
“I-I’m so sorry” she said before she turned her back and hurried away.
“Miss … Miss Shifter … um … Miss Adelaide Shifter”
“Hu … Oh sorry” I said turning around to face the person that called my name,
“Hea yea, um I’m not use to that name yet, Sorry!”
“It’s quite alright Miss” said the maid, she looked to be in her thirties with
long black hair in a ponytail. “Lord Mevolent wants to see you, follow me”
“Um … ok” said Adelle as she followed the maid.
They walked to a room somewhere in the middle of the castle. It was a large
room, bigger than Lord Vile’s room. In the middle a boxing ring. All around the
edges of the room there was mates. In the right corner there was two rings
suspended from the roof. To the left there was balancing beams and other
equipment used in gymnastics. Majority on the right side there was equipment to
do boxing with. The back there was some racks with wooden weapons on it. The
front was also covered in mats. In front of the boxing ring was Mevolent and he
was talking to a girl that looked to be about the age of 17. She was thin, with
Golden brown hair with copper and blonde streaks with blue eyes. She was wearing
white leather jacket with grey skinny jeans and combat boots. When Adelle got
close enough she bowed and waited to be acknowledged.
“You don’t need to bow like a mortal anymore, you’re a sorcerer and sorcerers
only bow a little.” said Mevolent, Adelle stoped bowing, but didn’t make eye
“Yes My Lord” She replied, Mevolent grunted.
“This is Death Rose” Death rose Adelle thought, I’ve herd of her, “She is one
on my deadliest assassin’s, but she is also the youngest, she will be training
you, so that you are better at combat. I thought you might like someone more
“Thank you My Lord” Adelle said inclining her head to Death
“You’re a sorcerer you can call me Lord Mevolent, not ‘my lord’ that is for
“Yes My- uh um I mean Lord Mevolent”
“That’s better don’t you think Death?”
“Yes it is” said Death
“I got someone to go to the tailor that made your undergarment, and got him to
make you some pants and a coat that should a just to your size like your undergarment.
I thought it would be better because I don’t want to see you in just that dress
“Yes Lord Mevolent I will agree it is too short to wear on its own. But it was
only meant for emergency, and having it is better than having nothing at all!”
said Adelle grinning, as Death giggled.
“Yes I’m glad you had the sense to get something like that!” said Mevolent, “Anyway
I shall be off, Death you know how to start, and Adelaide your clothes are over
there” said Mevolent as he pointed to the corner of the boxing ring, “And the
cloths will be your first day’s payment”
“Thank you Lord Mevolent” Adelle said as she inclined her head as he left,
Death did the same.
“Hi, I’m Death Rose and I’m your trainer!” said Death
“Hi Death I’m … um Adelaide Shifter and I’ll be your student!”
“Why did you hesitate before your name?”
“Oh um … well I’m still not use to it! I only told some people my name yesterday”
“Did you make it up on the spot?”
“No but it did take me some time to pick a name that felt right. But I have only
actually be called it today, so yea I’m not use to being called it yet, so if I
don’t respond to Adelaide then call me Adelle”
“Ok then, an you put your clothes on then we’ll start, and you can get change
in here, because there’s only me!”
“Ok” said Adelle as she picked up her clothes. She slipped her paints that she
was wearing under her dress off, and then put the new paints on. She took of
the maid’s dress and laid it over the rope around the ring. The she put on the
coat. Her paints where light grey, skin tight and ended not too far below her
knee. Her coat was the same colour grey and ended mid-thigh. They looked good
with her short white dress.
“So what is your magical ability?” Asked Adelle
“I can Kill people with a glare and twist gravity. What can you do?” Death
“Oh cool! Um … I can change my size and the further away from my regular size
the tougher my skin is. So the best I could do is probably squishing you!”
“Cool! Can you show me? … But don’t squish me, Ok”
“Um Ok” Adelle said, then started to grow in size, at first the cloths don’t a just,
but as she get bigger the clothes stop staying the same size. The dress that
ended just above Adelle’s knees is at her mid-thigh. The paints that use to end
below her knees cover only half of her knees and the coat that ended at mid-thigh
has ended at her waist, but thankfully the sleeves stay at her wrists.
“Cool! Normally the first tip I would give would be to use your size and weight
to your advantage but I think you already have that covered!” said Death with a
grin on her face
“Ha yea that’s kind of under control! I can shrink to” said Adelle as she
shrunk back to normal size
“so you can be smaller that you are now?” asked Death
“Cool, I take it you want to see my ability now?”
“Yes please … only not the one where you kill people but looking at them!”
“Fine” Death sighed in disappointment “I’ll just show you how I twist gravity,
watch the waits” said Death, as Adelle looked over Death twisted her hands and
the waits lifted off there racks and spun in mid-air.
“Oh cool! Can you change you gravity to make yourself float?”
“You know I haven’t tried that before! Let’s give it a go!” said Death enthusiastically,
all of a sudden Adelle started slowly lifting up
“Waaaaaa” Adelle said as she starts slowly spinning as Death giggled, “Ahhhhh,
put me down, put me down, put me down!” Adelle landed on the mat with a thud,
death started laughing
“Ah-ah-h-ow” Adelle said, the n she sat up and started giggling, “What was kind
of fun! You should try it!”
“Ok” said Death a moment later she was slowly drifting upwards, and slowly spinning,
“Hey this is really fun! Why didn’t I try this earlier?”
“Sarah would love this!”
“She’s … was my friend”
“What do you mean was” said Death trying to sit up right why hovering, she was
failing because while her position was correct her head would slowly spin
downwards so that her legs where above her head, then it would keep spinning
till her head was in the right position then it would spin downwards again.
“She said that we couldn’t be friends”
“Because I’m a sorcerer, and it would be dangerous to be my friend”
“Why would it be dangerous? Wouldn’t it be better?”
“No, you don’t understand, maybe I’ll explain it another day” Death seamed to
understand that it was not a topic Adelle wanted to talk about.
“Ok, we might actually want to do some training, so let’s get to it!” said
Death, and when her feet where underneath her she dropped to the ground. “Let
get this party started”

Thank to all that read this!!!
And if any want to be
in the story just tell me! Oh and say what side your on (the Resistance
or Mevolent's) and give me a description of what you look like and
Note you might not be in it a lot or for a bit, I've still got to wright a lot to get up to the seance.
“Wha- where did we … oh right my house”
Adelle said as she looked around. Then she noticed her brothers on the carpet.
“Boys can you please go to you room I want a privet conversation with Lord
Vile” Adelle’s brothers cocked their heads “Please go now!” Adelle said with
more urgency. The boys picked up the almost completed puzzle and went to their
room, “And close your door all the way!” Adelle shouted after them.
“Why are we in my house?”
“Go get changed” he whispered
“Why” she asked, Lord Vile just glared at her, “Fine” Adelle said as she
stormed off to her room
A few minutes latter Adelle came out
wearing another brown maids dress, because the other ripped when she grew. Lord
Vile was still standing exactly where he was.
“Where is Mr Thomson’s house?” asked Lord Vile
“What our neighbour Mr Thomson lives to the left of us” Adelle said as she
pointed to her left. Lord Vile grasped her shoulder and they shadow walked.
“Hey, wha- … are we at Mr Thomson’s?” asked
Adelle as she looked around the two story house.
“Show Adelle her mother” said Lord Vile, Adelle spun around to see Mr Thomson
staring at Lord Vile.
“Um …” said Mr Thomson, then he cleared his throat, “Lord Vile as much as I
welcome one of Mevolent’s generals into my home, I ask that you use the front
door! And as for Adelle’s mother I have not the slightest idea of what you’re
“Lord Vile? What are yo- Adelle a-are you ok? Are you hurt?” said Adelle’s
mother as she pocked her head out of one of the doors, then harried over to Adelle
“Mum, wha- but how?” Adelle hugged her mother, “ I-I saw you before a-and you
were dead! How are you alive?”
“Lord Vile brought me home and told me to go hide! As for me being dead I can’t
explain that part because I didn’t know about it!” Adelle’s mum turned her head
to Lord Vile
“I saw some one that looked like you, so I made her be ‘you’”
“He know about this?” asked Mr Thomson
“Know about he saved me and made it look like he killed me, I think he knew
exactly what he as doing” said Adelle’s mother. Just then Adelle detached herself
from her mother and lunged into a hug around Lord Vile, he stiffened with his
arms suspended in the air looking like he didn’t know what to do with them. Mr
Thomason and Adelle’s mum stiffened, and held their breath
“Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you! OH MY GOD THANK YOU!” said Adelle
from around Lord Vile’s waist. Slowly Lord Vile lowered his arms and hugged
“Um … your welcome” Lord Vile said. Mr Thomson and Adelle’s mother let out a
sigh, and breathed again.
“Now then, did you know that you were a sorcerer?” asked Adelle’s mother
“Yes, I did” replied Adelle as she let go of Lord Vile and straightened up.
“You’re a sorcerer?” asked Mr Thomson
“Why didn’t you tell me earlier?”
“Um … well … because I wanted time to develop my ability to control it, and was
worried that you would reject me because I was different” she said in soft
“Oh Adelle we would never reject you, your mu daughter and no matter what you
are or what you do I’ll love you!” she said as she pulled Adelle into a hug.
“I’ll go get Will and Ben they’ve got to know that you’re still alive” said Adelle
“They already know, they were on the carpet when Lord Vile shadow walked in”
replied Adelle’s mum, she sighed “You can’t tell anyone that I’m still alive,
if the word gets out we’re all dead, … maybe not you Lord Vile, even if Lord
Mevolent turns on you, you could do some major damage and get away. But the
rest of us, including your Tony, Will and Ben will be dead”
“What about dad?” asked Adelle. Tony was Adelle’s dad’s given name, and Debbie
was her mums.
“No y-you can’t tell your father, not yet, not till we can all get out of
here!” said Debbie. Adelle’s eyes widened
“Oh no, oh no I-I’m so, so, so sorry, b-but Dad, Will. Ben and I can’t leave”
“Why?” said Debbie frowning
“Lord Mevolent was going to kill all of us if I didn’t agree to work for him, and
because we work for him we can’t leave the City without telling a number of
mages so they can Keep an eye on us, otherwise if we leave the City otherwise
we will be considered as people from the Resistance and we will be all hunted
down for the supposed information about the resistance we’ll have” said Adelle
quietly without making any eye contact.
“Oh … that’s ok at least your all alive and intact! But what happened? The last
I saw you were beating up some red hoods” Asked Debbie
“I got captured”
“How you attacked the red hoods and live?” asked Mr Thomson
“My skin is harder to pierce the further away from my regular size I am, so I
have a massive bruise on my leg, but that’s all the injuries that I got! … And
I had some help from you Mr Thomson” all at once everyone looked at Mr Thomson
“Wait what do you mean I helped?”
“You taught me how to defend myself, so I use some of the things I learnt, but
my fighting was sloppy and not so good, but I guess it got the job done!”
“Oh yea I taught you how to defend yourself in case you get robed or some guy
tries to do something to you in the street!” Adelle and Lord Vile exchanged a
glance, “Not to go and beat up red hoods!” Mr Thomson continued.
“Yea Sorry about that Mr Thomson” said Adelle
“Well I at least I know that you learnt something from me!” said Mr Thomson,
Adelle just nodded to this.
“You best get going, and explain this to your father, but not the part about me
being alive, unfortunately too many people know already”
“I’ll try to get your mother out of the City as soon as possible” said Mr
“Thank you Mr Thomson, good bye Mum! I’ll seen you soon ok!”
“Yes but don’t come over to often and keep everyone safe!”
“Yes, I will” said Adelle; as if that was Lord Vile’s queue, he shadow walked
them to Adelle’s house
“So you killed someone else instead of my
mother?” asked Adelle as they arrived in her house.
“Would you rather your mother?”
“No, but I’m sure the people she knew would” Lord Vile just looked at her, “Not
that I’m not grateful or anything!” said Adelle quickly, Lord Vile nodded
“Good bye” he said
“Bye, see you tomorrow” after she finished her sentence Lord Vile shadow
walked. She waited a couple of moments to make sure that he was really gone.
“Boys, you can come out of your room if you want, Lord Vile’s gone home!”
Adelle shouted to her brothers.

Thanks to all for reading this!!!
Lord Vile walked in the room with flecks of
blood on his armour.
“Ah Lord Vile, here you are! Did you kill her?” Mevolent asked
“Yes” He whispered
“Great where’s the body? I wish to make sure you did it” Mevolent said. Lord
Vile cocked he’s head as if to ask ‘You doubted me?’ Lord Vile gestured with
his hand and a couple of red hoods came forward dragging a body with them. The
body was in a brown maid’s dress and had a hole through the stomach. The face
was mangled beyond comprehension, so much that the face no longer looked like a
face but an area covered in blood and with chunks of flesh hanging loosely in
the wrong places.
“No … No, No, No, No!” Adelle sobbed “No t-this can’t be right! No! Mum! No, No
wake up mum, wake up!” Adelle said as the knelt next to her “Please” she
whispered as she touched the cold skin. She was sobbing loud hard sobs that
made her whole body shake. Adelle’s face had red blotches from sobbing, but she
didn’t care, her mum was dead and she wasn’t coming back.
“You killed her” she whispered to Lord Vile, “YOU KILLED HER!” Adelle roared as
she leaped at him. The two red hoods caught her in mid-air and tried to drag
her away from him.
“I HATE YOU! I HATE YOU” she struggled the red hoods made her face Mevolent, then
made her kneel, “I hate you” she whispered
“Now you’re a sorcerer that’s a little unexpected. But I haven’t seen a person
be able to change their size before! Tell me how long have you known that you
were a sorcerer?” Asked Mevolent his voice soft
“A-about a y-year” said Adelle still sobbing
“Mmunm so not that long? You seem like you have a good amount of control over
“N-no I don’t, b-but my emotions m-make it easier t-to do”
“Yes I would imagine so. How did you find out that you were a sorcerer and why
didn’t you tell anyone beforehand?”
“Well” Adelle said calming down a bit, “My Grandfather di-died about a year
ago, a-and when I found out about his d-death I-I was devastated, h-he was the
best gr-grandfather anyone could e-ever have! I-I went to my room and curled up
on the floor, I-I felt so small, and I-I don’t know when I finally stopped
crying, I-I found that I w-as s-so small.” Adelle took in a ragged breath, “It
took me half an hour t-to g-get back to about regular size. A-and, and-” Adelle
burst out crying; she brought her knees up to her chest and sobbed. She
couldn’t take it anymore her mother was dead and she would never forgive
herself, it was her fault, if she didn’t give Lord Vile the messages that maybe
her mother would still be alive!
Mevolent sighed “Ok, why didn’t you tell any on earlier? You could of gotten
respect and you could of gotten a better job than being a maid”
“W-with a-all due respect I-I didn’t want t-to get involved t-till I was
eighteen, the I-I would have been a legal adult, a-and I though t-that I-I
could keep my f-family o-out of it, b-because I though i-if I was an a-adult
then n-no one from the r-resistance o-or your sorcerers w-would n-need to
contact my f-family.”
“Your under clothes, they still seem to fit you, why is that?” Asked Serpine
“W-well I told a-a tailor a-about my s-situation, h-he made m-me this d-dress,
h-he made it f-for free b-because he wanted the c-challenge. He s-said that I-I
could pay him back w-when I w-was older.”
“So he just wanted the challenge? Who is this tailor?”
“Mr Cotes, h-he’s a sorcerer, j-just an elemental. He w-works on Jamison
“Your leg is still in tacked even thought I saw a red hood’s scythe hit it, how
is this?” Asked Serpine
“W-well the further a-away from my o-original size I get t-the harder my skin
is t-to pierce”
“Mmmmm … well I have come up with a generous offer, that you can either accept
or refuse, it’s you choice” said Mevolent with a wolfish grin, “The offer is
that you could work for me and be one of my mages, you will be payed when you
work of course, the right amount, and we can forget this thing ever happened”
Adelle opened her mouth to scream something like ‘You stupid bitch, my mother’s
dead how can I forget this’ but she quickly realised who she was about to well
it to, and she figure her family would have had enough deaths for one day, so
she closed her mouth again, then opened it,
“And my Lord what if I don’t accept?”
“Well then it’s quite simple really, you and your family will be considered as
resistance and be hunted down, captured for information, if you don’t tell
information then we shall force out of all you, physically or mentally. So it’s
your choice” said Mevolent still grinning. Adelle wanted to wipe the grin off
his face so bad! But she knew that that had won, and so did he. Adelle sighed
“Ok I’ll agree but I only want to work part time, the rest I’ll work as a maid”
she said. Mevolent considered this for a moment.
“I have no objection to that. But you and your family can’t leave the walls of
this city or you shall be considered part of the resistance. Although you may
leave when you are instructed by me.”
“My Lord I mean no disrespect, and I understand your decision but we have
extended family outside the walls and we tend to visit them every few years for
Christmas or New Year. And it would be nice to be able to visit them”
“You may leave the City for those occasions but a number of mages must be
informed which town you are going to and when you are leaving, from there the
mages will keep an eye on you and your family but they will stay a respectable
distance away from your family meeting”
“Thank you My Lord you are too kind” Adelle said as she bowed her head.
“Lord Vile please assort this young lady home” said Mevolent as he gave Lord
Vile he keys to the cuffs “Oh and I expect your full cooperation from now on,
considering how generics I have been to you. You will start tomorrow”
Adelle nodded and stood up, her leg was sour from where the red hood’s scythe
hit, the looked down, the was a massive ugly bruise forming. Lord Vile remover
the cuffs, she felt her magic flood back into her, it made her feel good and
strong, she barely managed to stop herself from punching Lord Vile and
Mevolent. She tried not to look at her mother because every time she did tears
threatened to spill everywhere.
“What is your name?” asked Mevolent
“Given on taken?” Adelle replied
“Both if you have both” he responded
“My Lord my given name is Adelle Gent and my taken name is Adelaide Shifter”
“Why did you chose that name?”
“Well my Lord I liked the name Adelle, and Adelle can be short for Adelaide, although
it’s not for me. And I chose Shifter because I’m a size shifter.”
“Interesting, you may leave now!” said Mevolent, Adelle gave a bow, collected
her dress and shoes, then followed Lord Vile out of the room.
When the doors had closed Adelle slipped on her shoes then started walking to
the kitchen. Lord Vile stepped in her path and reached for her elbow. Adelle
“Leave me alone!” she said her voice harsh.
“Where are you going?” he asked.
“I’m going to the kitchen” she replied and tried to pass him, but he stepped in
“Well I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’m in a short sleeved dress that
ends just above my knees and it’s snowing outside!” she said with anger rising
in her voice. Lord Vile just cocked his head, and then grabbed her shoulder but
before she could pull out of his grip they shadow walked.
