21. Chapter 20 - Sable

After Eren Galloway left, Alisa pulled Sable into a corner of the cell. 


“That was dangerous,” she said. 


Sable gave her a confused look. She didn’t understand. 


“You couldn’t tell that he was trying to draw information out you?” 


“What?” 


Alisa sighed, shaking her head with disappointment. “He controlled you throughout the conversation...it’s as if he had been trained by a spymaster.” 


Sable was crestfallen. For a moment, she thought that she had handled the conversation well; she went along with the flow and did not adopt a hostile attitude. She was expecting praise more than anything else. “How did he control me?” 


“He used a tactic that merchants and royalty use during negotiations.” 


A tactic? Sable tilted her head slightly. She didn’t feel that Eren had manipulated her. 


“It is very subtle and hard to notice—but that is the genius of it.” 


Sable waited for Alisa to continue. 


“I suspected that he was using this tactic when he told you about his brother—what was his name?” 


“Kolin.” 


“Yes, Kolin,” Alisa continued. “There was no reason for him to tell you anything about Kolin and where he came from. Why should he? He is only responsible for keeping us imprisoned—not trading tales with us.” 


Sable opened her mouth to answer, but no words came. Alisa was right. There was no reason for Eren to tell her such a story. None at all. And come to think of it, he had volunteered to tell her that without her asking him to. 


“Then why would he tell me something like that?” 


“The only reason why he would tell you this is because he wants something from you.” 


“Something from me?” 


“Yes. It’s a common strategy to gain the trust of a stranger; if he tells you a story first, then it is likely that you will tell him something in return. It is in our nature to trust the people who share secrets with us.” 


Sable’s heart sank. The entire flow of her conversation with Eren was laid out right before her. It all made sense now. Alisa was right; she had been manipulated the entire time. She had refused to speak to Eren before he told her about Kolin, and after he had told her about Kolin, she had felt a sense of trust—even if she wasn’t aware of it. She had told him about her little sister Claire and had Alisa not interrupted, she would have told him where to find her. 


Sable sank against the wall, her breathing uneven. How could I have been so foolish, she reprimanded herself. Her breathing turned rapid. She shut her eyes. No! No! 


“It’s all right,” Alisa said and patted her on the head. “I stopped you from saying more, so your sister Claire is safe. He won’t be able to touch her.” 


Alisa put her arms around Sable as though she were a bundle and cradled her. In Alisa’s warm embrace, Sable found a little comfort—a sense that not everything was lost. 


“Besides, we can now use this to our advantage.” 


Sable lifted her head. How? She then remembered that Alisa was about to tell her about the breakout plan that she had in mind. 


“When a man is clad in armor, their most vulnerable part is their heart,” Alisa said. “And that is what we must make use of if we want to break out.” 


Alisa pointed at the cell door with her thumb. “As long as this door is there and our magic is sealed by the gransia handcuffs, we can’t break out on our own.” 


Sable agreed. She had come to the same conclusion. Without her magic and with the guards watching day and night, there was no chance for any kind of tinkering. 


“So what is your idea?” 


A malevolent appeared on Alisa’s lips. 


“We have to make use of the vulnerabilities in their hearts...have you noticed how so many of the guards are young men? Many of them probably don’t have a wife. If we can make use of that, then...” 


Sable drew a sharp breath. She wasn’t sure if she should feel shocked or disgusted. “You want me to seduce… a guard?” 


Alisa shook her head. “Originally, this was the idea, but now...” 


She told Sable about the nights when Officer Galloway had come to their cell and watched her—and only her—with silent intrigue. 


“I don’t know why he holds such interest for you, but we can use his desires to our advantage.”
