GENRE: YA fantasy
"Good afternoon, girrrl," said a smooth yet startling voice.
I did not speak, not wanting to give away the panic and fear inside me.
Footsteps approached, growing louder by the moment. I stiffened. These villains... what will they do to me?
"Speak up, ye idiot." The same voice spoke, sounding rougher this time. Two strong arms shoved me and nailed me to the ground.
"Who are you?" I howled in anger as pain pierced through my back. "Why are you doing this to me?"
"You'll find out soon enough." His words were followed by the sound of cruel laughter.
I bit my lips, trying to calm down. "I am the Dark Emperor's sister. How dare you treat me like this?"
My comment earned me more sharp kicks in the stomach. "His Majesty ain't carin' who ye are. Neither does I."
"Leave me alone." I tightened my fists, ready to fight back if he hurt me again.
"You killed my pals. You ain't gettin' away with it." But I could hear his footstepts fading away. I sighed heavily and fell back to sleep.
