27. Shrieking Dragons

Emma:

/Maulduen!/ I called reaching out with my mind, searching for his familiar mind. Touching his subconscious I yelled his name once again, breaking down his mind wall. /Maulduen!/ His answering call was like wind on a summer day.

/Emma, are you alright?/ he asked urgently, assessing my mind. /What did they do to you?/ I swallowed hard, thinking of how to explain what had just happened to me.

"I was tortured, I can't move, my body is too much in pain. They tore off layers of skin./ I swolled, trying to move my hand but cringing in pain as I failed.

/Oh, little one!/ Maulduen said in a coo, and I felt that he wished he knew where I was to come and protect me from any danger still arising. /I will send word to Jura, maybe Patten, Romnly, and Tomi are already with them, and they can rescue you./ he said, and I felt his mind outstretch across the land, searching for Jura's. /I'll contact you after I have talked with her, for now, rest little one; and stay strong./ He left my mind then, and I let the pain cover my body again. During my torture session, I learned to hide most of the pain, but it made me tired, and after I did it I always hurt worse than before. They gave me new clothes - more like rags, but I was thankful nonetheless. And I waited, and waited, and waited.

 

Melanie:

Aslan visited me again in my dreams. We were standing on a rooftop in the middle of a city. He jumped to another roof and motioned me to follow him. I followed and we jumped across the rooftops. The city seemed to go on forever until I started to fall, I don't know if I missed the next roof or if it ended but I did know I was falling. I awoke with a jump. The sun hadn't even risen yet. I got up and walked around the camp, taking deep breaths to calm myself. A low rumble emanated from Jura. /What is wrong?/ she asked mentally, searching my mind for what was troubling me. 

/Nothing, nothing. Aslan just took me to another site in my dreams./ I said in a matter-of-fact tone. Jura's eyes opened slightly then closed again, as if dismissing her thoughts. I walked over to her and laid a hand on her soft scales. /I wish Emma were here./ 

/As do I. Her companion, Maulduen is a strange dragon./ I smiled.

/You like him./ I said nudging her.

/Maybe I do, but he doesn't show any interest in me./ She said laying her head between her front legs.

/Oh, I doubt that./ I said laughing. Jura made a low rumble that shook the ground along with my body. 

/Now, go back to sleep Melanie./ She said changing the subject quickly. After about an hour of trying to go to sleep, Jura blew fire from her nose and jumped to her feet. Everyone woke up, and taking their weapon in hand looked for danger. Jura roared again  "Maulduen! Emma!" she yelled in anguish, clawing the dirt making big gashes in the soil. Her eyes were fierce, like blue electricity, searing into anything she looked at. I slowly made my way back to her, trying to calm her. "Torture!" she yelled, wings flapping wildly.

"Jura what is going on?" I asked in a shaky voice.

"Torture! So much blood!" she repeated, backing away from me like a frightened animal. "Maulduen! Emma!" she yelled than roared loudly, clawing the earth again.

"Jura!" I yelled, making her stop in her tracks and stare at me. "What is going on?" I asked again, placing a hand on her chin. Her body trembled. She flinched at my touch as if I had just touched a fresh wound.

"Maulduen is injured, as well as Emma - they were taken from the castle." she said with disgust. Patten bolted out of his bed, his jaw clenched.

"Tell me where she is." He ordered Jura, and I knew right then and there, that he would do everything in his power to get her back, he is not a man to be trifled with. Jura reached out with her mind and told him the directions to the prison she was being held at.
