Cara had just gotten dragged out of the room by a bunch of trolls. It seemed like she didn't know what they were even thought I'd given her a very precise description of them. She also forgot who I was. I wonder what happened to all her memories. She didn't even seem to know that she was a hybrid because or else she wouldn't have been afraid of the trolls. I wonder what she could remember. Her friends, her family, her previous life? I was worried. Even thought they couldn't really hurt her. This was ridiculous! I groaned in frustration as more thoughts about Cara filled my mind. I was so stupid sometimes! Instead of thinking of a way to escape, I was thinking about a Cara who was completely invincible and not at all in danger. But then again...No! I had to stop thinking about her! There must be a way to escape this stupid cell and then I could think about her.
I was dreaming. I had to be. There was no way in hell that this...thing in front of me was actually real. This was all happening in my head. Wow this guy seriously looked like Slender but scarier. By far. This had to be a figment of my imagination.
Wait did this guy just read my thought and talk to me in my own head. Nope, this was definitely not happening.
"Yes it is happening. This is all real. Not in your mind."
That voice again. Okay, this was starting to seriously freak me out.
"Now, we all know about your special powers so no need to hide them. You will obey everyone of my commands or the boy dies."
What boy? And most importantly, what powers?
"I told you not to lie about your abilities. As for the boy, it is the one in the other room, the one in the room that you were in. Don't tell me you don't even remember who your boyfriend is."
What abilities? And since when did I have a boyfriend? Was my boyfriend the boy in the other room? Well that would explain why he was so distressed when I didn't remember a thing about who he was.
"Still denying your little talent? Well, lets see what happens when we give you some motivation."
Truth serum? Before I could react, I heard the doors behind me open and turned to see who was coming in. Two of the repulsive creatures came in dragging a boy between them. Well he was more of a teenager/man that a boy. Jasper he had told me? He had gorgeous black hair, pale skin and...red eyes!!! Still, he was extremely good looking. So this was the "boyfriend"? Well, he was pretty damn hot. Okay, I was so not thinking that. Behind him was another creature, holding a black box. It gave the black box to the faceless thing sitting in the throne. The thing stroked the lid quickly and the box opened revealing some kind of yellowish powder. I turned back to the teenager behind me. He was staring at the box with wide eyes. I looked back at the yellowish powder. What was so dangerous about it?
"The powder will motivate you to tell me the truth. I will let him inhale it then I will question you. I you hesitate to long or simply if I feel like it, your boyfriend here will feel extreme pain, as if someone was torturing him like he was a mortal."
He wasn't a mortal? Well then what was he. Maybe a vampire? Wait...that was probably exactly what he was! That would explain the red eyes and chalky white skin. The Faceless One (that was my new name for the creepy thing with no face) ordered the other creature to let the teenager, Jasper, take a sniff. The two creatures holding him forced him in a position so that he had to breath the horrid yellow stuff. The they half dragged him across the room so that he was standing two meter away from me. Then the Faceless One asked me my first question.
"What is your name?"
"Cara." I said out loud.
I could see relief flicker across the boy, no, Jasper's face as nothing happened to him. I just hoped I could give the Faceless One the answer he wanted.
"Do you know this boy?"
The question I feared. No, I didn't really know him but I at least knew his name so I supposed that I should say yes. I was about to open my mouth to answer when a metallic shriek echoed across the room. It was Jasper. He was writhing on the ground in pain, a tortured and scared look on his face. The Faceless One was not joking when he said that he would be in extreme pain.
"Yes." I answered quickly.
I look of relief crossed Jasper's face when I said that and the pain obviously stopped.
"What is his name and what type of creature is he?"
Damn the Faceless One and his questions!
"His name is Jasper and...um...he's a vampire."
The last part of my sentence sounded a bit like a question. I just hoped that the Faceless One didn't notice. If he did, he would probably inflict more pain on Jasper and it would be unbearable to watch him get tortured because of me.
"Good,good. Now to the more important questions..."
I felt a shiver run down my spine. This was not sounding good...
