30. Calling all Avengers!
"Hello, everyone." I whispered as everyone gathered in what used to be my home. "I'm sorry that I've been gone so long, even with the cars. I need your help." Anna looked at me with curiosity while everyone else sat in silence. So, I told them what had happened in the time that Zayn and I had been gone. Their expressions went from curious to shocked to horrified and then, on some, to rage. "What should I do? I don't want to believe Sasha, but Zayn seemed filled with guilt... Like he had done something wrong or had something to hide..." Anna came up and hugged me tightly, attempting to comfort me. "I'm sure that there's an explanation for this. You just have to give him some time to explain himself." Harry nodded as he came up behind her. "She's right. Zayn loves you and this doesn't sound like something he'd do." I smiled as Liam, Niall, Louis, and Haley walked up, offering support. "I have a favor to ask, then. I have to make my decision on what to do with the two and I have to find a way to say it that will appease my people. This can only be done in my realm. Will you come with me?" One by one, until they had all agreed, they nodded. "Ok, hold hands and don't let go. I'm porting us all in."
"And the next thing I knew, I was waking up in bed with her trying to..." "I get the picture, I assure you." Ty said quickly, cutting me off. "Sasha has tried once or twice to end up in my bed, but I never allow her to. That and I'm a light sleeper." He chuckled and, oddly, I found myself smiling. "How long do you think she'll take with gathering people?" I asked, wondering when I'd get a chance to explain, if I ever did. "Well, that all depends on who she summons. Some of the people must be present and you will be punished one way or another, according to the ancient rules. That's how it has to be." I groaned and then jumped as someone unlocked the door and opened it, revealing Lu. Ty was on his feet in a matter of milliseconds and then by her side. "My Queen." He whispered as he bowed to her. She rolled her eyes and motioned for him to arise. "None of that nonsense, Ty, we're friends. Now then, bring Zayn to the throne room. Everyone else is already waiting for us there. Put some irons on him or something and make it look convincing." She whispered and then walked away, saying nothing to me as she left me with Ty. "Alright. Give me your wrists, out in front of you." I did as told and then there were heavy chains around my wrists, pulling me towards the ground. "Just play along with whatever she says and whatever I say. Act lie you're afraid. The people have to think that you were in the dungeon or else Lu will be in big trouble. She broke laws when she locked you up in here and big ones. No one can know." He said quickly and then grabbed the end of the chain, pulling me along roughly. As he walked me to the doors of the throneroom, I began to get anxious and quite nervous, not knowing what to expect. Ty knocked twice on the doors and they were thrown open. He pulled me in so hard that I hit the floor and I looked up just in time to see Lu flinch. But, then I noticed something worse. All of the other avengers were here and both Louis and Liam looked ready to rip Ty's head off. "Bring him forward and put him next to the maid." She called out across the room. There were about ten demons in the room watching, just enough so that Lu could get away with it. Now then, let's get this thing started..." She whispered as the doors banged shut behind me.
