Random Rael and Aden scene
Rael could feel his mind wrap around her thoughts; anger flooding through her veins. She wouldn’t-no! She couldn’t let him in. she knew this information had to be sealed away, but no matter how hard she fought his power, it was useless. He was like a title wave crashing against her mind. He would know everything. In that moment she couldn’t believe that she had ever stood up for him. She couldn’t believe that she ever thought that there was one ounce of humanity in him at all. Jerevon was right all along. Aden was a monster.
The shields Rael put around her mind were shattering like glass. She couldn’t feel his hands around her head anymore. She was in a complete mental state. She knew he would have everything he wanted from her mind whether she wanted him to or not, so she mentally blasted her thoughts at him. Opening up completely, she threw all the power she had into his open mind, hoping it would cause him pain. Rael could feel Adens anger in my mind when she did so. It was working, or so she thought. She kept lashing out at him with her mind until finally, everything went black…
Rael awoke to what sounded like a hundred voices screaming into her ear. A cascade of images filled her mind at a rapid pace that almost made her nauseous, they were going faster and faster, she couldn’t even tell that they were images anymore, just a blend of colors; she tried to focus her mind to block them out.
Suddenly the images disappeared. Rael sat up, moving at a slow pace. She was very dizzy at first, but quickly recovered. She was no longer on the balcony with Aden. She was in a rectangular room, which she assumed she was still a part of the castle because the walls were lined with Esyth markings. There was a small table in the center of the room. On the table, there was a well-lit lamp and several scrolls, all of which were completely exposed. There were book cases covering almost every inch of the small room.
Rael noticed that the books on each side of the room were very different. The binding of the books on the left side of the room were written in the silver-black style of the Esyth markings. On the right side of the room, the bindings were written gold-white style of the Nero. Both sides had their own distinct glow, but collectively, they were emitting far more light than the lamp on the table.
As Rael started to walk toward the table, she realized that she wasn’t alone. In the corner, there was someone she hadn't noticed before; she had no idea who the dark figure was, much less why he or she was in the room. As she looked closer, she noticed the figure trying to pick the lock of a small safe.
She wanted to hide, but there was nowhere in the room to conceal herself. She thought of quickly hiding under the table, but as soon as the thought came to her, the stranger turned around and was now facing her. It was Aden. Somehow, he was very different.
“Aden?” she asked.
”How did we get in here?”
He didn’t seem to be listening to her, nor did he seem to care that she was in the room with him. He just kept staring at the table.
“Hello?" she asked, with an obvious tone of frustration.
“Where the hell are we?"
Still, he remained quiet.
“Fine, guess you won’t mind if I leave then.” she said, turning toward the door that was beside her.
As soon as she placed her hands on the doorknob, someone knocked. She turned to face Aden, wondering what to do. As soon she turned around, Aden phased right through her body, as if she wasn't there at all.
She instantly spun around in shock to face him wondering what just happened.
