Alone on the carpet

"Who is she"

"Where does she come from"

"Why is she here"

Muffled voices whispered questions. Blurry red faces leaned over her. Calloused hands reached out to touch her's.

"And Why; did you have to stun her Cadbry?" This voice sounded clearer, sharper. Slowly Sarah's vision returned and the blurry images focused. She was lying on a very itchy blanket. surrounded by many more people like the little old man who had captured her.  When they saw her eyes open they shrank back, as though horrified. All but one that is. She was wearing the same leathery tunic as the rest, but instead of leggings she wore  a short skirt of a shimmery orange colour. Her aubern hair was so long it reached her waist, even though it was plaited very tightly. "Hello,"she said. "It is goodto see that you are awake"  The girl's mouth split open in a wide smile revealing bright white teeth. "Do you think you can stand, we wouldn't normally ask you to but we cannot spend the night here and the rst of the caravan is impatiant to be on the move...."

"That's ok, I don't mind moving"

"Good, cos otherwise we would have had to drug you again"
