okay so recap, eliza had just gotten into an argument with her brother Elrin. they two of them rarely fight so this is a big problem for the two of them to overcome...
She tried to turn around but she felt the grip tighten on her shoulders and she winced with a bit of pain. This person...who could it possibly be? Probably one of Lust's accomplises. Eliza looked up to Lust who had disappeared from where she had just been. When the person turned her around she felt herslef go into shock.
"It's...It's you!" she cried.
The man raised an eyebrow with little emotion.
"You ready to go?" he asked.
"Go?" Eliza struggled. The grip tightened again and she cried as his bare hands crushed her shoulder. He was hurting her so badly that she fell to her knees in pain. She reached for the chalk in her jacket but he was too quick. He swung it from her hand in a seconds notice. It fell a few feet away from her. She gasped but turned to him with anger.
"Who do you think you are?" she cried. "You saved me once before and yet now you..." she took a deep shaky breath, "You traitor, you lied to me."
"I never lied." he said shortly, "I merely saw a young lady in trouble. I can't stand by and watch her, no matter who she is, get hurt."
"Pride really is your soul's tear isn't it?" Eliza asked with a wry smile.
He frowned and Eliza saw his hand go up. Then it came down on her and she flew away from him. She fit a wall and slumped forward. She felt the throbbing pain in her head. when she touched the back of her neck she felt the blood on her fingers. She drew her hand back towards her face. It was indeed her blood. She began to hyperventilate. When he walked forward she tried to scoot away from him. Once again he was way too quick for her. He was near her in a flash grabbing her by the arm she was hoisted up in the air.
"Kain!" She heard the voice from above.
Lust landed near them with a wicked face.
She turned to Kain and slapped him across the face. He dropped Eliza's arm at the sudden impact but when Eliza looked up at his face she noticed his face was the same, emotionless. His pride was too big for him to give up. He looked down to Eliza and she frowned.
"You're not supposed to kill her only capture her and bring her back to the warehouse you dim wit. This girl is the key to the gate and you let her blood run freely. I'm sure I'm not the only one who has noticed that this girl's blood is more serene than any others. Give her to me and I'll take her back myself. Obviously you can't handle this job. Get out of here Kain." she yelled.
It took me a moment to realize that this was just how she and Elrin had fought not so long ago. The man turned around and began to walk off. But before he could leave he turned his head slightly.
"You know as well as I do that the blood that runs in her veins is pure, more than any other. I hope you realize this Lust, that you are not the only one who realizes the power they hold within their bodies."
Lust frowned but remained silent.
Then she turned to Eliza. Eliza watched in horror as Lust pointed her outstretched hand towards her. Eliza knew that they didn't want her dead only alive. And as she was in bad shape right now there was no way she could fight her off.
"Whadda you want from me Lust?"
Lust's expression didnt change.
"Come with me. You and I both know you're too weak to fight me off so there's no use in trying."
Eliza's fists clenched but she stood up carefully stumbling once before catching herself on the wall. Her head was throbbing terribly. She didn't know what they were talking about. She was a key? what could possibly be going on here?"
"I'll go with you then."
Lust laughed once,
Eliza walked forward two steps before she felt Lust stop her.
Eliza grew angry.
'Is this woman playing games with me?'
"Not so fast. We're doing this we're doing this my way. Tie this blind over your eyes and then put your hands behind your back. The place we're staying is supposed to be a secret."
Eliza hated the idea of being blinded but if she didn't do what Lust told her to do then she might end up stuck like a marshmellow on a stick over a fire. She tied the blind fold over her face andwrapepd it around until she could not see anything. She was entrapped in the darkness. She began to feel the pressure in her face. She was going to be enclosed in the darkness.
She felt Lust grab her hands behind her back and tie them swiftly. When Eliza tried to undo them she found them tightly bound. The rope was too strong for her to break.
"L-Lust...Where are we going?"
She felt something touch her back and she gasped.
"Just keep moving forward. I'll lead you. Don't try anything funny or else I'll kill you within the second you dare run."
Eliza nodded barely listening.
She began to hum a tune from her music book. She didn't understand what was happening at first but realized that she was claustrophobic. She had learned this when her brother had locked her in a closet when they were little. They had been playing a game and she had hid in the closet. He locked her in there, thinking it would be a funny joke.
She remembered it clearly.
At first it had been fun and games. Eliza knew that to hid in the jackets would be a great hiding spot. So she ran in leaving it cracked and hunger herself inside the largest coat. She fit perfectly. Her plan was sure to work. Elrin's running steps could be heard from upstairs.
"Eliza!" he called, "I'm gonna get you!"
She giggled. after a time she began to feel the stuffiness of the room getting to her it was hot. The jackets began to crowd her and she fiddgeted around in the jacket. She became uneasy and sweaty. Her breathing was quick and heavy. She decided at last it was time to get out of the closet. She was climbing out of the jacket and reached for the knob. After a moment she realized it was really dark, then laughed mentally because her eyes were closed, that's why. She opened her eyes and yet...it was still dark. she tried again feeling her muscles work as she opened her eye lids again and again. She twisted theknob in her hand. It wouldn't open. She pushed against it with all her might and began to cry.
"S-someone!" she cried, "Let me out! Hurry! Let me out!"
"No way Eliza!" Eliza stopped crying long enough to hear Elrin's laughter on the other side. "You wanted to hide in there so you can stay in there."
She pounded on the door again with both her fists.
"Elrin! Elrin hurry and let me out! I can't breath...I can't...breath..."
Eliza dropped to the floor in tears hugging herself to the corner of the closet.
On the other side Elrin had left to go get both him and ELiza a snack. He had forgotten to unlock the door for her. He had thought it woudl be a good idea to go grab the snacks that he had forgtten about Eliza. He ut his ear to the door.
"Eliza, you in there?" he asked cautiously.
"Eliza, are you okay?" still no answer.
Elrin dropped the cups of juice and snacks in his arms. The liquid spilled to the floor in a splash as he unlocked the door. When he opened the door he could not hear anything but the murmur of someone. The closet was empty until he looked to the right side of the closet where Eliza sat hugging her hands to her ears and rocking herself in a corner. Her heavy breathing were more like gasps of breath now.
he crouched hurriedly beside her.
"Eliza, what's wrong?"
She was sweating and she wouldn't move her hands from her head.
Elrin, knowing that they were alone at their house, pulled Eliza out of the closet and set her upright against the wall. She began to open her eyes now searching the room. She found Elrin, her brother, sitting beside her rubbing a cold wet towel to her head. He sighed when she finally opned her eyes.
"Hey, it's okay. I'm here now." he soothed. "Don't worry, you're okay."
"Elrin...I couldn't breathe. It was too dark, I couldn't see anything." she sobbed.
She put her arms around him and hugged him close. He hugged her back and put a hand to her head and rubbed her hair. Even though he ws a boy who liked trucks and dirt Eliza was still his sister and he knew how to treat a young lady and to him Eliza was his precious person whom he would always love.
'Elrin will come find me again.' she thought as Lust turned her a different direction. She heard a door open and knew they were inside somewhere. They hadn't walked far so they were within the ware houses for sure. This is where they had been hiding for the past few weeks probably. Their trail had been hidden so carefully, they had probably been on the move from place to place because of Jet.
She heard a door close and the blind fold came off from around her head. she felt Lust's delicate hands touch her shoulder.
"There." she said, "Now just sit here and Kayla will treat your wounds. Sorry about Kain, he can get a little out of control at times."
Her appology was incencere. she wasn't sorry at all.
Eliza looked around. They were inside a warehouse alright. This one was different from the others she had been in so far but still it had the same decorations. except these were all old and torn. Dust was everywhere. And so was the darkness. she reached for the wall and hugged her back against is. Lust turned around to see Eliza fixed on something on the ceiling. She realized the problem at once.
"You're claustrphobic aren't you?" she smiled softly, eyes watching with curiosity. "How strange and yet you plunged into that dark cave to save your brother before. Why now when there is hardly any danger near you or him would you suddenly be so frightened?"
"What do you mean no danger? My brother was in trouble, I would go through hell itself to get him back."
(and that's it for now once again i hope i get your feedback soon! thanks for reading!!)
(okay there is no beginning yet)
Elrin walked into the room with a satisfied smile on his face. Eliza sat in the corner working herslef through her music book. Elrin knew what that was. There was something bothering her, something bad. Whenever she went through that book the music showed her mood. Her flute lay in her lap carefully balanced while she flipped through the music. When he stepped in he took off his jacket and set it behind a chair where it hung to let the water drip onto the floor.
He didn't speak to her, knowing well enough that she would let her anger out on him if he disturbed her. She flipped through a piece of music, not once looking up to him. Once she found one she pulled up the flute from where it lay and put it to her lips. The musc began soft and dark for a long time. the puzzlement of anger and pain seeped through her fingers from her soul. The music transitioned to a soft ballad. A tragic song. One of death and pain.
When it ended she put the flute down and began to piece through the book again.
He took the opportunity to speak to her now.
"Something wrong?" he asked casually sitting on the bed.
She didn't look up to him.
"No." she said shortly.
"Are you sure? You seem mad at something or someone. Was it Jet? Did he do something to make you angry? If he did then you tell me," Elrin sat upright. She stopped piecing through the book to stare up at him. "C'mon Eliza i can't read your mind. You have to tell me what's bothering you."
Her fingers gripped the edge of the book. She could feel her music crinkling under her grasp. She released it and took a deep breath then turned to her music.
"If you're such a genius then you tell yourself what's bothering me."
He frowned, "Don't play games with me right now. I haven't done anything."
Elrin saw her freeze and before he could see it coming she threw the music book at him. He dodged it in time to see it fly over his head. The music book hit the wall with a large thud. The music flew everywhere while Eliza was breathing heavily.
"You stupid boy!" Eliza cried, "How could you go off and act like one of those dogs? They rape women and drink so much it's enough to know that you've just gone off and hung with them." She knew she was right. Elrin was acting like a fool today and he should realize that women aren't any different from men. "Elrin, from now on stay away from those men. If you go with them I'm afriad people will see us differently and treat us differently. I won't have you messing up the reputation we have worked so hard to build here in the Military world. You understand that right? So don't go-"
"Shut up!" Elrin shouted at last.
He had been so quiet up until now. Eliza drew away from him. Never before had he ever yelled at her with such cold eyes. Eliza looked down. She was being controlling again like the Leutenant had told her once before. It was not right to be controlling when you are equals. But this was his fault! He was acting like one of those Military scums who just came on to women to mess with them and worse was that Elrin knew this. He even rode with them in their truck back to the apartment.
"Okay, then I guess you don't need me telling you what to do. You've got it under control right?" Eliza asked, looking to the floor. "Become like them then! I never want to see you again if this is the way you're going to treat women. We're not toys, we're human beings. Remember that and come find me when you're head is screwed on right again!"
Eliza took off and bounded out of the apartment.
She ran far away not once looking back to the apartment. Elrin had said nothing to stop her. He had let her run out without any thought of stopping her.
'Stupid Elrin, let him go and get some weird girl to take him away.' she thought but the thought left her mind quickly. She didn't want that. She wanted him to stay by her side forever and then one day they would have a family of their own and their kids would be cousins and grow up together. Not for a long time. As long as either of them lived they would not be without the other. Their bond that had inscribed itself on their bodies made them realize this.
"I have to go back and tell him I'm sorry for being so controlling." she said at last.
When she looked up she found herself around the warehouses. The fountain was just between the next alley. It's so dark out here now, she thought, looking around the darkness the alley had taken in. There were no working oil lamps around this part. If she got to the other side then it would be no problem getting back to the apartments. She could see the light already on the other side.
When she was turning around she made her way a few steps when she heard something swish past her.
She jumped aside in time to see Lust's long fingers stab the ground next to where she had been. She dodged again as the daggers stabbed the earth, easily breaking through the brick road. Eliza drew out her chalk and drew the circle. She slapped her hands on the circle to see the red glow.
"Lust!" she ried out, "Get away from me!" she warned.
Lust stood up on the roof top with a smile on her face.
"I've come to get you girl."
"My name is not girl, if you haven't realized by now it's Eliza. So get it right and memorize it."
From the circle came a large brick wall zooming into the air where Lust was. Lust dodged this instantly. Eliza knew her power was weak without Elrin but she had to try. She was on her own here.
Lust raised her eyebrow.
"You're so helpless without that brother of yours. He is the stronger one of the two of you but that doesn't matter, or does it?" Eliza paused with the circle she had redrawn to listen to Lust, "He wants to live his own life now without anyone to hold him down. That includes you too, doesn't it?."
Eliza inhaled a large breath.
"Wha...?" How did she know that? She thought wildly as Lust's smile grew more confident when she realized she had hit a delicate spot. Eliza grinded her teeth and frowned, "You shut up!" she cried.
"Oh, looks like I was right. That brother of yours really only wants to be free from you holding him back all the time right? He even proved that today by hanging out with those men and seeing those older women today at the bar. Face it, you're not worth much importance anymore. He's off on his own and he's loving the freedom already I bet."
Lust's words hurt her more than ever. She felt the tears running down her face. Lust was manipulating her. It was only manipulation! She was lying to her. Elrin loved Eliza with all his heart...But, he was mad at her. He had wanted her to leave, he hadn't stopped her from leaving the apartment. Lust was right.
The circle's glow vanished and Eliza's head dropped.
"You...you're right. He is mad at me. He even yelled at me." she laughed once which choked out into a sob. "I wasn't trying to tell him what to do I just wanted him to stop hanging around with those jerks. I just didn't want him to stray away from our goal..."
"Hmph, well that's not my goal right now so get over it." She said hatefully. "I could care less what your problems are. Honestly i have my own but you don't see me complaining. I'm moving forward with my plans."
Such hurtful words. How could she live with herself?
Within the next moment She felt two arms on her shoulders.
(and that's it for now, please give me feedback asap people!!)
