In This Nightmare

I looked at her with an raised eyebrow.
"And if I don't let you go?" She starred back, furious.
"You will die." I laughed, before my eyes became serious.
"No. You will." I was glad I just had the knife sharpened. It would have been a lot messier to cut her throat with a dull one.


11. Chapter ten (Laelynn)

Curse you Vas, curse you and everything you have ever done. The sword collided with the poor tree, which had done nothing to provoke my anger. Now that the ball was finally over, I was once again free to do…..mostly as I pleased. However, even so I was not at all happy at the moment. Since the ball the people…..and especially my parents seemed to adore that little sicko even more blindly. 

Slash, crack, thump. The branch fell onto the ground, though I got no happiness from cutting this tree into pieces. “How much easier everything would be if I could just bloody decapitate you right this moment old friend,” I mumered. It was not hard to imagine him standing by my side snickering. “Talking to yourself is never a good sign dear. Might be you’re going mad”

Teeth clenched and insides boiling with badly concealed rage I sat upon the ground underneath the newly massacred tree, my sword lying across my knees gleaming dangerously in the patches of sunlight that made its way through the thick dark green leaves of the forest.

This place had always helped my calm down somehow. It felt like the forest around our estate was….well the only place everyone else could not….reach me. It was my own world, a place where I could be entirely myself….always.

Leaning my head against the trunk of the tree I sighed and looked around breathing in the calming smell of autumn air and earth.

We had played here once, I remembered with sudden clarity. Back when the two of us still had our baby teeth and our swords had been made of wood. Hacking, slashing and stabbing at each other as mercilessly as it was possible while getting chocked on our own gleeful laughter. If this flashback had concerned anyone else, it might have made me laugh. As it was….it only served to make me feel sick.

That…..that…..thing had somehow managed to convince everyone he was still just an innocent little boy…..a hero he was being hailed all around as some kind of protector of women. Well he was not…..not one bit of it was true.  I had repeatedly asked his sister if he could not just have an….accident….but no. She said that only evil played that unfairly.

In truth I admired her for her noble way of thinking, but I wanted this dealt with quickly. Of course as clean as possible, but this was Vas we were talking about. I was not sure that there had ever been anything clean or pure in him. That he had not always been tainted by madness. How Cairistíne had managed to not all be touched by said madness was beyond me. She had always been one of the wisest and least mad people I knew.

But of bloody course I had gone and made friends with her younger brother first. I guess the universe just loved to spite me. Let me make friends with a nice boy, then have him fall off his rocker and make the entire universe believe that I’m just being selfish and cruel for trying to keep him as far away from me as possible.

Someone had even gotten a rumour started stating that I was mad at him because he had left me for another girl. Well clearly there was no evidence of that. Vas and I had, as I was forced to grudgingly admit to myself several times a day when I cursed him into oblivion and wished him all ill been very good friends once. However that was it, no more and sadly no less. With a groan, I hid my face in my hands. Suddenly this place did not seem at all calm. Instead I just felt more alone than I had felt in years a sudden hallow feeling sweeping over me….nothing I EVER did went right… could I even catch myself hoping that we would get him?
