Edit: since I finished this, I have made major changes to Chesha and her story. I will be rewriting this

Chesha is the elven princess of Aakridi, a planet across the sun from Earth. When heroes arrive at her planet unexpectedly with a human girl who looks oddly like Chesha, weird things start to happen.

Book 1 of Obsidian Series


5. The Body

I was beginning to feel cramped in the four by four foot room. Whoever had created the castle had made secret rooms and passages for if we were ever attacked. The downside was the rooms could only be opened by the outside. At one point a mouse crawled over my foot and out through a crack to small for me. I must've been in there for three hours because it was beginning to also feel stuffy. I began to worry.

Had they forgotten me or were they all dead? I hoped that all of them, even Hawkeye, were okay. Maybe only because I wanted someone to let me out. I stretched my legs and felt the stone that slid open through the outside. I dug my nails into the side and tried to pry it open. I gritted my teeth, straining my muscles to open it. I slumped against the wall, panting.

I stood again and pounded the door screaming, "LET ME OUT! PLEASE!"

At this point I didn't care who was out there. There was a muffled sound from outside. "Who's there? Let me out!" I hit the door again.

"Hold on, darlin'." There was a grunt and slowly the door slid open.

I stumbled out and stood face to face with Wolverine. "Thanks." I breathed.

He nodded curtly and I followed him out. The bottom of the castle seemed relatively unharmed. "What happened? Where are the others?" I asked. "Please tell me they weren't killed. Are my brothers ok? What about my dad and the town? And the teams, where are they? I thought you had powers so aren't they-"

"Sweetheart you're speaking to fast for even Quick Silver to follow." Wolverine cut me off.

I pursed my lips. "Sorry." I mumbled. "I'm just worried is all."

"I know. Don't worry the towns a bit shaken up but it's all good." He placed his hand ok my shoulder as we walked out.

I blinked at the darkness and realized that it had been more than three hours. "Chesha!" Hiwel sprang to me.

I hugged him. "Hello." I buried my face in his green hair.

"It's good to see you're all right." Koquz murmured.

He and Muuko stared at me sadly. There shoulders hung. "What happened?" I asked, getting a bad feeling.

"It's...nothing. Nothing, you need rest." Muuko murmured, picking Hiwel off.

Now I was worried. "No it can wait, tell me what's wrong."

Sveta slowly tried to lead me away. I pushed her off. "Chesha go to bed." Koquz growled.

"No!" I yelled as he tried to bring me inside.

As Iron Man came to help and the teams shifted, I spotted a familiar body on the ground. I ducked and came up beside it. A lump formed in my throat and tears filled my eyes. The body's left arm was cut off and the stomach slit open. "No...no not him." I choked out, falling to my knees beside it. "Muuko it's not true is it?"

Muuko wrapped his arm around my shoulders and led me back. I don't know what he said, all I remember was the pain and sadness. The body was my father.
