This the original, i'm rewriting it at the moment.


18. Now or Never

I woke with scratches and bites and blood all over my body. Arthur sat with his back against the wall, my head on his lap. He stroked the hair which blocked my eyesight. When he noticed my eyes were open, he smiled. But only briefly, “Why is it always us?” I humoured. He laughed weakly, “Well it isn't just us,” he looked in a different direction. We were in a different dungeon, which allowed us to see into others, and there I saw Adonis, Zandro, Farron and Ambrosine. Adonis and Ambrosine in one cell, and Farron and Zandro in another. They were all unconscious, except Ambrosine. He was lying on the floor, in pain. He saw me, and tried to sit up, but he couldn't, his arm was broken and his leg had been slashed countless times. He closed his eyes, and turned away. I pulled myself up, and leant against the stone wall, next to the cell wall which was next to Farron and Zandro. Farron head lay right next to the wall, I reached out, and stroked the tangled blood covered feathers. His yellow eyes gazed up at me, as he woke up. But closed them again, and purred. I smiled, I brought my hand back to my cell. Arthur put his arm around me, I felt him shake less when his skin touched mine. He pulled me closer, a tear fell from my eyelashes and landed on his skin. He stroked my hair aside, and kissed my neck. The first time that lips have made contact with my neck, that wasn't for blood. His hand gripped at the other side of my neck, I could feel how he felt. I wanted to be alone with him. He left my neck, and kissed my lips. His hands ran up my body until his hands were in my hair. The door slammed open, and the vampire came in, Arthur stopped kissing me. And his hands slid down to my waist, he looked at his father. I looked deep into Arthur's eyes, watery and red, he'd been crying. Zandro sprung into life and started to growl and bark. The vampire walked to his cell, and he cowardly back into the corner. “That's what I thought,” he came back to me and Arthur. “I'm going to offer you one last chance, leave her, and you live like a prince. With your half sister.” he shook his head. “No, you can never change my mind,” the vampire rolled his eyes. “Fine, but you can't say I didn't try.” He left the dungeons, and slammed the door shut behind him. Arthur look at the floor, in disbelief. “I'm so sorry Erica, this is my fault, if I didn't come into your life. You would be with someone who can protect you,” I sat up and knelt. In level with him, “No, No. It's because of you I have a reason to live, I would of died in the first attack. When he striked you, that gave Adonis enough time to summon Silvana and Ambrosine. I would have died there and then, but I’m alive because of you. And I feel more alive when I’m around you,” he put his arms around my upper back and kissed me. I was lost with him, but I felt alive. In an adventure, as if I was about to wake up, and be in the care home again. I put my arms around his neck and kissed him deeply and passionately. This didn't last more than a minute, for a screaming noise came from the door, becoming louder and louder. Until the vampire came in with Silvana, pulling her by the hair. Ambrosine couldn't believe what he was seeing, everyone was conscious now. Adonis looked over to me and Arthur, his arms still around me. He let me go, and I went to the cell wall, she was covered in blood. The vampire threw her into the cell, and pushed the door close with a swift motion. He stopped at our cell, and looked at his son, disappointed. He left the dungeon, leaving fear in-bedded in our hearts. “He has gone too far,” I declared. It was then I realized, “I'm gonna escape.” They all looked at me as if I was crazy, “How?” Ambrosine asked. Cradling his wife his arms much like Arthur did with me. “I can Shapeshift into any animal, thanks to Zandro here.” The wolf bowed his head as I mentioned his head, I closed my eyes, and spoke very faintly 'Dragonfly'. And I changed into a tiny insect, “See.” My voice was really high pitched, and I flew out of the dungeon window. And changed into the white winged wolf, looked back at Arthur, and flew away from that nightmare. But away from my dream, Arthur.
