19. Three Days and Then Some More


Three days. Three days passed and we are still chained up. What Even? The witch (we found out that the woman was a witch) would give us food if necessary, and water. And I found out that we as humans need a lot of water to survive. We didn't talk much, and I mean how could you when there was a witch breathing down your throat the entire time. She had chained us standing up - such a great torturing device if you ask me. My feet were hurting the first day in, she has us on the third day. I can't really feel my feet right now, but I know they are there - thank God. I drooped against the chains holding me to a post, almost passing out from being sleep deprived, and food deprived, and everything deprived. 

"What can we do to make you let us go?" John asked. 

"I will let you go, though with a little price." the witch said. 

"'N tha' would be?" Lanna asked. 

"Two of you kiss." The witch said with a sly smile. Anna's eyes widened and looked at Hutch. - He was looking a me. 

"You two may try..." the witch said snapping her fingers - there bonds broke and the two walked over to each other. Hutch looked back at me, then back to Lanna, leaned dow and I looked away. I could hear Lanna press herself closer to Hutch, and Hutch pushing their bodies apart, but their lips still were connected when I looked back. I looked at my bonds, they didn't break. "Ah! It didn't work!" the witch clapped her hands and Hutch and Lanna were back in chains, being drug back to their posts. 

"We kissed didn't we?" Lanna asked. 

"Yes you did... but I suppose it was the wrong two people." the witch looked over at me, a wicked smile on her face. 

"Who do you want me to kiss? I asked. "And it better not be Maggot!" I yelled. 

"No, its not maggot - though that would be entertaining. No." She looked back over to Hutch, the same smile on her face - I looked at Lanna, she looked horrified. "I want you two to kiss." Both our bonds broke. I fell to the ground, not having the support of the chains, and looked at my now free hands. 

"Lanna," Hutch started slowly. 

"Just kiss her... Kiss Tomi." She said sternly looking away from him. I looked at the witch, the evil smile still there. 

"And make it a good one!"  she yelled as Hutch made his way over to me, and helped me up. I shook my head, he did the same. "Come on! We don't have all day!" the witch yelled. Hutch looked over at her, his two different colored eyes stern. 

"Fine." He said, looked back at me, closed the distance, and then his lips were on mine. I was frozen, but my mind didn't want to stay that way. My body took over, my hands flying to his hair, his hands on my back - holding me to him. He was so much taller than me that he had to bend down in a crutch to kiss me. I tried to make it easier and go on my tippy toes, it didn't help much. So hutch did the only reasonable then. Well maybe not the most reasonable - we could have broken the kiss, but no. Hutch picked me up so he didn't have to bend down. 

"Bravo! Bravo!" The with yelled. Hutch set me down on the ground, and the bonds broke on everyone - Hutch and my foreheads still connected. I pushed him away, but not before I herd him whisper 

"I'm sorry." I walked over to the witch. 

"You better be happy... Now where are our weapons?" I asked jabbing a finger at her chest.

"Oh, I'm extremely happy. Here are your weapons." she snapped her fingers and our weapons came flying from any opening the room had, and landed in front of the captain, who was speaking to Hutch. I walked over to the weapons - got mine and walked away, not looking at anyone and everyone at the same time. Lanna was against the far wall looking at me, I went over there. 

"I'm sorry - I wasn't planning on doing that." I said.

"You like 'em. I like 'em. 'N Hutch, he I th'nk like's you." I began to protest but she put a finger to my lips. "No - I d'nt want to hear your petty excuses." I pushed her finger away. 

"I don't like him -" I was lying, and she knew that. I did like him. and he was my first kiss... wow... I walked away from her as Hutch cam up - he grabbed my arm and forced me to look at him. "What do you want?" I asked not making eye contact. 

"I'm sorry - can we talk later - up on the look out?" his voice was stern, but when I looked into his eyes they were soft. 

"Fine - but you better talk with Lanna." and then I walked out of the store. The sun was down , and the stars danced around the sky. 

A week passed - I didn't talk to Lanna or Hutch the entire time. I spent my days training either in my room or on the higher end of the deck. I would see Hutch walking with John or Lanna, he didn't seem to talk to them, only walking with them. He would glance at me though, and his eyes were always sad. 

I found that I was getting more fit and could easily walk now with no problem. I was now making my own moves after perfecting the ones Hutch gave me, but I wasn't changeling myself - I needed to spar someone - but no one here would spar me. They all saw the things I did to the practice dummies and targets - always refusing when I asked. 

And I can't hide from my friends forever. I have to face Lanna and Hutch sometime. But I have no clue how to start a conversation with them after what happened at the witches. Hutch said he wanted to talk to me... but... uh... when is or was that supposed to be? 

"I climbed up the rope ladder to the crows nest and sat there for who knows how ling before Hutch finally came around. "Hey!" I said making him jump a little. 

"Uh, hi?" he said sitting across me. 

"I'm here to, uh, talk..." he nodded, rubbing his hands together. 

"Yeah, I kinda guessed that." it was silent for a while, then Hutch said, "So John offered me the spot as captain." 

"Really? Thats Great!" I said a little too enthusiastic. 

"Yeah, I said I would think about it. I don't know if I'm ready to be captain - I'm only 17, and John is 27. He became captain when he was 25. That's 8 years older than me." he covered his face with his hands. 

"So are you going to take it?" 

"I don't know." he moved to sit next to me - I looked away from him. "Tomi..." He said softly I looked at him. He looked down at my hand, which was laying between us, and took it in his hand. A shiver ran down my back. "I'm sorry for not talking to you sooner." He squeezed my hand. 

"It's okay." Hutch didn't say anything, only set his head against the rough wood. He still held my hand. "So are you and Lanna still a thing?" I asked. 

"Aye, we are still a 'thing'." I squeezed his hand. 

"Then, we should probably not be holding hands." He nodded and let go on my hand. 

"Sorry.... again, for everything." I nodded - and the first time sense I came to Narnia I thought of my boyfriend Jayden. Ugh - why am I falling of Hutch then? Do I not like him anymore? No, I don't like him anymore - I like Hutch. Jayden, I officially break up with you!... but you don't know about it..... Ugh....

"It's okay... Did you talk with her after the witches?" 

'Aye, we did. And everything is good between us..." He said slowly, and I could have sworn there was a hint of sadness in his voice. We didn't say anything for a long time, and the sun was starting to set. Somehow, our hands intertwined again and we sat there just holding hands. I ended up falling to sleep leaning against Hutch. 

I woke in the morning, the sun rising slowly I walked around the room and found a note. 

Thanks for talking with me. I'll be there at training today. 


I got dressed slowly and walked to Breakfast not paying much attention to anyone. Today would be a good day.
