7. Locked Up and Deranged

He knocked Carrie and Jessica out with blows to the head. He wished he didn’t have to, but it was necessary.

When he got back to Arendelle, Jack first put Carrie into her house, then carried Jessica to her room in the palace. He then laid her on her bed and closed the door, locking it with a key.

Jack walked away. She wasn’t getting out of that room. The windows were doubly locked from the outside. He was taking extra precautions.

After that, he put the Orb into the royal treasury.

Elsa didn’t know that Jessica was being kept prisoner in her room. When she went by Jessica’s door, Jessica didn’t make a sound.

When Jessica woke up, she found herself in her room. She dashed to the door. Locked. She tried the windows. Doubly locked. She was trapped.

7 weeks went by. Elsa thought that Jessica was in Villain Alley. Lila was married off to the Duke of Elsburg, and when she left, since she knew Jessica was in her room, she said through the door, “Goodbye, Jess. I’ll miss you. I’ll visit when I can okay?” Jessica didn’t answer. She was too angry.

Slowly, as days went by, Jessica began to lose touch with reality. Soon, she began hallucinating, thinking that someone was out to get her. But she didn’t dare make a sound, thinking that the person out to get her would hear her and hurt her.

Carrie was able to tell the other villains what happened. However, without the Angels’ Orb to sustain them (since Lilith, who was supporting the Warriors of Hell because Jessica was their leader, had delivered it to them without them knowing to keep them alive, not to make them immortal) they all slowly began to die. Carrie was able to break into the palace and got the Orb. She dashed back to Villain Alley and did the ritual to make them immortal herself, which worked.

They became stronger, and broke into the palace to free Jessica. However, the guards caught them and put them back into Villain Alley. Jack was notified about the break-in and asked, “Did they take anything?”

“No, Your Majesty, but they did try to free Princess Jessica.”

“Well, they won’t get very far. Were they successful?”

“No.”

“Good. Keep her in there. I don’t need Elsa knowing about it either. Because if she DOES know about it, she’ll have a heart attack.”

“Yes, Your Majesty.”

The Warriors of Hell were being guarded by the palace guards. Jack went over to them, appearing at the guarded gates. He didn’t have a guard at his side because he didn’t need one.

Murdera growled. “What do you want?”

“I want to tell you that trying to get Jessica out of the palace isn’t going to work. She will stay in that room until she comes back.”

“What do you mean ‘until she comes back’?” Mudera asked.

“She’s a villain because of you,” Jack said bitterly. “Because you made her into a villain. You showed her the ways of the wicked and now-” he stopped, taking in a shaky breath, “Now she’s gone. All that’s left is her body and a wicked soul, all because of you. Once Jessica comes back to normal, back to the good side, then she’ll be let out. That will be awhile, because she just finished the conversion from bad to good. But I think that the transformation can be reversed.”

The Warriors of Hell looked at each other, and looked back at him. They were all quiet.

“So until the conversion is reversed, either forcefully or on her own accord, she won’t be let out, and I won’t let anyone see her. It will be as though she’s dead all over again.”

The Warriors of Hell glared at him this time.

“That ‘conversion’, as you call it, cannot be reversed. She is who she is. She chose the path of the Warriors of Hell. That was her choice. Everything will be MUCH more easier if you leave her be,” Murdera said.

“I can’t. I want her to rule Arendelle rightfully, and the only way for her to do that is if she’s good and fair, not wicked and cruel. I’m sure you know that, Warriors of Hell.”

“How can you possibly teach her to be a good leader if she already is one?”

“Being the leader of a group like yours doesn’t make her a good leader. Not to me. Good leaders show respect, which Jessica hasn’t. So, until she becomes good again, you will be without a leader. Therefore, you won’t know what to do. I think Jessica has intimidated you enough that you won’t try to appoint a new leader. Am I right?”

The Warriors of Hell nodded silently and slowly.

“That’s what I thought.”

Then Jack realized. Jessica had intimidated them enough that they were AFRAID of her, yet they felt comfortable with her. That was talent. She had something about her that made people afraid of her, yet despite the fact that they felt afraid, they also felt comfortable. He could use that to his advantage. The problem was she most likely wouldn’t be willing. Besides that, he didn’t want to use her as a weapon. He loved her too much for that.

He bowed his head, and tears began falling. Just remembering Jess made him upset. She had come so far. He remembered that Jess would watch him in the throne room, listening closely and hearing his judgement. He decided to see her. He had to. She was trapped in that room.

He went to her bedroom and said, “Jess?”

No answer.

He grabbed the key and turned it in the lock, unlocking the door. Then he opened the door.  

He saw Jessica sitting on her window seat. He said, “Jess?”

She saw him and charged.

He quickly backed up, but it wasn’t quick enough, and Jessica knocked him down.

He landed on his back and grabbed Jessica’s wrists. He pushed her away and Jessica stood there, a low groan escaping her lips. He got up and brushed himself off.

“I have something to say to you. I locked you up for your safety. So that you would see just who you’re meant to be. A royal. A crown princess on the verge of becoming a queen.”

Jessica seemed to come back, but she said nothing. She reached towards Jack, taking his hand into her own. She began to feel his fingers, slipping her tiny ones through his own. Then she pinched him. Jack cried out in pain and snapped his hand back, looking closely. She’d pinched him so hard that there was blood coming from his finger.

“Jess, I never thought that keeping you locked up would have this kind of effect on you. I want to avoid you becoming a villain again, but I also want to avoid you becoming deranged. So, I’ll let you go around the palace without a guard. However, I don’t want you going outside unless it’s with one. You can go the distance of the docks both ways without one. But if you’re going farther than that, you’re going to have a guard by your side who will put shackles on your wrists, and the chains will be as long as 5 feet long, so you’ll be able to be 5 feet away from the person who’s guarding you. You can go as far as the border of the woods, and you can interact with the other villagers. I’ll tell the villagers not to be scared of you.”

Jessica stared at him. She said nothing.

Jack said, “Think of it as restricted freedom.”

Jessica watched him closely.

“I know you’re not happy about it, but I need to put some restrictions on your freedom for your safety. I want you to be safe, Jess. I can’t lose you again.”

Jack went to her and sat beside her on the window seat.

“I cannot, CANNOT, Jess, lose you again.”

She stared straight ahead, not looking at him.

He sighed and put his hand on her shoulder.

“I expected more of you, Jessica. I thought maybe raising you to be a mix of your mother and I would create a princess that understands that villainy is wrong.” He took in a breath, and said, “I guess villainy got the best of you.”

She looked at him.

“They were right. I can’t make you change your mind about villainy.”

She looked away.

“But I CAN restrict you, and that’s what I’m doing. Locking you up simply proved to not be the answer. I’ve heard you’re the queen of the underworld, who’s one of the most feared people in this world, Jess. They don’t need a monarch that’s like that, and right now, you’re being feared. They’re terrified of saying your name.”

Jessica didn’t answer.

“Jess, I don’t want you to be feared. If you’re going to rule successfully, you must know how to rule fairly and not be feared in the process.”

He looked at her deep in the eyes. “You’re acting strangely. You haven’t said a single word, and usually you would have defended yourself by now. Your eyes signal something dangerous. You look paler than usual. Come on. I’m taking you to the infirmary.”

He grabbed her arm gently and took her there. The doctor asked her a few questions, but Jessica didn’t answer. She looked so confused. The doctor then told Jack, “She has psychosis.”

Jack’s heart sank. His daughter, a psychopath? It couldn’t be!

“She’s disoriented. She doesn’t know what’s going on. Sadly, this cannot be reversed easily.”

Jack then said, “Will she become who she was before, as long as she’s given time?”

“Perhaps. I cannot say.”

Jack then thanked the doctor and brought her to the library and gave her a few books that he knew she liked.

“Why don’t you go ahead and read these books? It’ll give you something to do, since I know you won’t want to go outside because it’s raining out.”

He then kissed her on her forehead and smiled at her. “I love you, Jess. I always will.” He then turned and left, walking back to his office, closing the door behind him.

Jessica then stood up. She was going to walk around. Her memory was fading fast, and she didn’t remember everything. If anything, she remembered her family. She didn’t remember her way around the palace, and she’d been living here for 17 years. She had to remember. She had to.
