It was hard for her eyes to focus as the room faded slowly and new imagines were bleeding through, it was as if everything was being covered by a deep black fog and she could not tell what was real.
As the fog slowly faded away a another room materialized around her, a lot darker than the room before, and this time the walls were bare of any markings just rough old stone walls that she did not recognize.
Aden appeared in front of her, she was in the center of the room and Aden was in chains that came down from the ceiling, the chains looked similar to the ones in the sealcai chairs, he was shirtless, with dirt and blood smeared all over his skin, his body looked exhausted as it just hang their lifelessly, “how many times do I have to tell you, I don’t have it” at first Rael thought he was speaking to her, but a voice came from behind, “I told you not to lie to me boy”,
Startled, Rael jumped around and saw two people, one she barely recognized was Enelle, Meleneils second in command. Enelles hair was much longer and she didn’t bare he devotion tattoo yet. Which meant this memory was before she was made Meleniels personal guard. “I’m afraid we will have to do this the hard way” she said but with a look of satisfaction on her face.
She turned toward the dark haired man standing next to her, Rael was taken aback by the deep red markings the man had on his face, and he had short dark hair with matching eyes. She had never seen him before, but she got a strong feeling of fear just by his appearance.
The man stepped forward toward Aden and began to circle him. “Do you know who I am boy?” the man said in a slow tone
“No, But I’m sure your just dying introduce yourself” he said in his unusual sarcastic tone. Not even bothering to lift his head up to face the man.
The man stopped in front of him and pulled up the sleeves of his robe, more dark red tattoos covered his arm, “I have a gift for you” he said as he pressed his hand against Adens shoulder. One of the small red markings started moving as if it was coming to life on his arm. it slithered up the man’s arm and right off his hand and onto Aden’s bare shoulder. it was a outline of a decorative tribal symbol, it didn’t look like the markings of Esyth to her. Nothing happened at first but almost an instance later Aden was screaming out in pain, the red tattoo looked to me burning the surface of his skin; it was hard for her to watch.
She wanted to do something to stop it, but she knew they couldn’t see her, and knew this was probably in the past.
As Aden’s screams died down, the man started laughing as if Adens agony amused him. “Now do you what I am?” he said
It was hard for Aden to reply but he managed to say “I can think of a lot of things to call you right now” he choked
She saw the anger in the other man’s face deepen instantly,
What a stubborn idiot Rael thought as she shook her head. The man’s look of hated turn to another evil smile as he pulled up his other sleeve this time he didn’t hesitate, another blood red tattoo came to life and made its way onto Aden’s arm. It was a snake this time, it slithered its way up Adens arm, It didn’t stop there but made its way a crossed Adens shoulder down his chest to wrap around his torso where it stopped.
An instance later Rael couldn’t decide what was worse, Adens screams or the look of slowly burning flesh, it was terrible.
She couldn’t help it she screamed aloud for them to stop hurting him but it was useless, she fell to the floor sick to her stomach, with tears on the edge of her eyes.
