New A/N: I AM SO SORRY I HAVENT UPDATED IN ALMOST NINE MONTHS! Please forgive me you guys, I feel terrible. I haven't updated anything since school started, so please don't feel as if I was neglecting just this category. I am so sorry again, Please forgive me!
Old A/N: Like I said this one will also be short, but then they will get longer as the climax approaches. Sad to say this story may have less than ten chapters left. Anyway, please enjoy. And part of this is in Elyon's POV again.
I clenched my fists, straining against the metal handcuffs that held me to the wall as I glared at my brother, waiting for his answer. I knew no one in the cave had expected me to yell. I know I've never been the most confident one in the bunch, but since my friends saved me from Phobos and I took over the throne, I've gained quite a bit of confidence. I was growing impatient as my brother still stood frozen, looking at me. I narrowed my eyes.
"Phobos! Tell me right now!" I shouted, something pulsing inside of me my anger started to get out of control. My eyes became blurry as I felt something like Cornelia had a few days earlier. I knew they were glowing purple and were on the brink of hitting Phobos with a deadly blast. Apparently, he knew it because he frantically tried to calm me down.
"Okay, okay! I'll tell you Elyon!" he told me in a panicked voice. I regained my vision as I calmed down and waited for Phobos to continue. I watched him and Nerissa exchange glances before he spoke up.
"Elyon," he began in a smooth voice. "What if I told you there was a way for you to meet our mother?" I let put a gasp and felt all my angry and logical emotions leave me as I thought of one thing and one thing only: meeting my mother.
"H-how?" I stammered out.
"Well, sister, if you help us with what we want, I may be able to give you what you want," Phobos replied with a smirk.
"But you think about it, dear. Don't want to make any rash decisions now, do we?" Nerissa grinned evilly. "Good-bye." With that, Phobos and Nerissa and walked out of the small prison room, giving me no chance to respond. I sighed before remembering there were still enemies in the room with me. Mel and Caleb were both watching me carefully, although I wasn't sure why. For some reason, Mel seemed fascinated with me and her expression towards me had noticeably softened once my brother and Nerissa had left. What was up with that? Then my thoughts drifted to Weira, the mother I had never met. I longed with my whole entire being, heart and soul to meet her, talk to her, see her, anything. However, what if Phobos was just saying this to get me to do his bidding for him? He was a great liar. I would know firsthand. I was torn between logic and heart. My heart was telling me to do whatever Phobos wanted in order to see her, just once. But my brain and every logic bone on my body was screaming to me that it was a trick, a dirty scheme that would do nothing but harm myself and my friends. What's a girl to do?
"Elyon?" Mel asked quietly, nothing like her harsh tone from before. The question of my name brought me out of my thoughts.
"Yes?" I asked, making sure to keep my voice and expression steely in case this was a trick as well.
"You have a hard choice to make, I can feel it in my heart. Perhaps I could help you with the choice?" Mel continued on in that sweet voice. I was still wary of it being a trick, but I was so torn right now. I was basically on the verge of breaking down and this girl everything. I glanced across to see Caleb standing by the door, his hand hovering over that darn silver sword that had already hurt Taranee and Will and Cornelia. I felt my strong façade begin to crumble as a lone tear escaped my eye and I sighed.
"I don't know. I would give anything in the universe just to meet my mother once. But, I think Phobos might be just saying that in order to get me to help him," I spoke out, watching Mel carefully even as my guard went down. Maybe she really was being nice and could help me.
"Well then," Mel began, her voice still sweet as she turned away from me. I let a small smile appear on my face, expecting advice to come from her lips next. Boy, was I wrong. Suddenly, she whirled on me, her eyes flashing an angry pink shade and her voice suddenly harsh and cold again. "Let me help you with that!" She pounced on my figure, her forehead inches from mine. I let out a shrill scream as images began flooding my head. Then everything went black.
