The Girl in Cell 3 (Triple Witching Hour)

Every day SABLE talks to her knight in shining armor, EREN. She says sweet words, tugging at his heart, hoping to steal it. But there is always a barrier between them - a prison cell door. EREN has struck a deal: keep her locked up and his little brother will be out of harms way.

Her cell is inescapable and her placement on death row rises fast. She aims to seduce him and have him break her out. But when truths and lies become one, can she deceive his heart without breaking her own?

14. Chapter 13 - Sable

“You want to break out, don’t you?” 


Sable said nothing. Her breath was frozen, her thoughts white like snow. 


What will Alisa do? Judging by her expression, Sable wasn’t sure what her intentions were. Whose side was Alisa on? There was too little information to go on with. This could either be a blessing or a trap—likely the latter. 


“There is no need to look so scared,” Alisa said. She smiled gently. “I won’t tell anyone.” 


Sable said nothing. She did not move. I won’t tell anyone. These words were nothing but an empty promise. There was no way to make sure that Alisa was telling the truth. 


“From the moment I saw you, I knew that you wanted to break out,” Alisa said. 


“How so?” 


Alisa pointed at her. “It’s written all over your face; you’re not very good at hiding your emotions.” 


“What—“ 


“I don’t mean the emotions that you feel,” Alisa winked. “I mean the emotions underneath the surface.” 


“I don’t understand.” 


“You should see yourself in a pond, Sable, then you will understand. Even when you try to hide how you feel, every part of you is radiating with...a will that refuses to give in.” 


Sable wrapped her arms around herself and peered at the floor. All of the sudden, she felt self-conscious. Was she really that easy to read? 


“I want to help you,” Alisa said. “I want to help you break out.” 


Sable felt a wave of relief wash over her. She opened her mouth to speak, to thank her, to empty out her heart to this kind witch—but she stopped herself. No. These were nothing but empty words. There was no way for her to verify if Alisa was telling the truth. 


“And why do you want to help me?” asked Sable, her eyes narrowed with suspicion. 


Alisa smiled a knowing smile. It was as though she was glad that Sable was suspicious of her. Like a mother was glad that her child had grown up. 


“Of course I want to be free,” Alisa said. “I want to roam the skies with my broom, to fly to the horizon, to taste the winds of summer and the fruits of autumn.” And after a moment she added: “But more than that, I owe you a debt. If you had not nursed me, I would have died. I could feel it. Maybe it has something to do with your magic? I don’t know. But I am alive because of you and I will stay with you until death do us part.” 


Sable couldn’t resist a smile. How ironic. The vow that Alisa used was the one humans usually used for marriage. 


They made eye contact and shared a chuckle. 


“Yes...I want to break out.” Sable spoke these words, knowing that this finally exposed her. She had decided to cross this bridge. 


“And have you found a way out?” 


Sable could only hope that this bridge would hold steady. Betrayal would drown her now. 


Sable shook her head. She told Alisa of the routine of the guards that she had identified and how that information was rendered useless when Senior Officer Galloway appeared and changed the guard routine and mealtime. She told Alisa of the attempted breakout attempt by the other witch and how she died because Sable begged for her help. The final conclusion that Sable had come to was this: so long as these gransia handcuffs were on them, they could not use their magic. And so long as they could not use their magic, the possibilities of action were severely limited. 


“There is a way out,” Alisa said. 


“What is it?” 


“There is a way out without using magic.” 


“I don’t understand.” 


Alisa licked her lips and her eyes narrowed. “You are thinking like a witch when you are dealing with human guards.” She laughed softly. “While you were asleep...I got the chance to talk to some of the guards.” 


Sable’s heart rose. What did Alisa have in mind?
