Sara has been accidentally transported by her fiance to a different planet. Her fiance, Will, has been hell bent on finding a way back to Earth but Sara secretly loves the new planet, Melladore. She has just witnessed Will murdering a magician for his magic and realizes that his plan requires mass killings. She now has to decide whether to tell the authorities and give up all chance of going home, or to keep quiet and get back to Earth.
Sara slowly lifted her tear stained face from between her knees. She had spent all day crying and rocking herself against the back of the training house, unsure of what to do. Would Will come after her with vengeance? Would she even be able to make a difference? She had run without thinking, but as she stopped to catch her breath before going inside, fear rushed in. That small pause crippled her will power. She felt a heavy, emotional hand on her shoulders. She would be an outcast after this. Somehow, she had ended up on the wrong side of things. After several hours, though, of letting her emotions run their course, she knew there was nothing to do but get it over with.
She plucked herself up from the weeds and made her way around the building to the front door. It was already open, which she thought strange. Though she was grateful. If she had been given the chance to stop before opening the door, she might have crumpled again. But now the way was clear with nothing to stop her.
She stepped inside and willed her feet to move forward, no matter what thoughts tried to dissuade her as she went.
Half-way across the gym she found herself running, all fear gone. This was her home now. She was committed to protect it, even at the cost of loosing Will. Tears once again sped down her face, but they were of relief. No more fighting herself.
