I was supa busy these weeks, so I figured I would make up for it while I was at dance. Here's another chapter!
Chapter 8: I'd rather die than lead a life of horrible adversity
Sabrina silently walked down the stairs. She watched the steps, making sure she skipped the creaky one at the bottom. On her back was a backpack with band aids, blankets, water, snacks and socks. She wore a heavy coat and black jeans and a pair of thick soled tennis shoes.
Sabrina had known that Mirror was the Master and that they had her parents under that spell. Goldilocks wouldn't do any good, but she had heard that the spell would wear off from Baba Yaga. Soon, too.
In the midst of the night, she slipped out the door and into the forest. She ran in and waited, stalking. She stood for what was near an hour, and then sat. She fiddled her backpack straps restlessly.
Suddenly she heard rustling in the forest, near her. Too loud for a squirrel, too quiet for a deer. A little human or person, most likely. She burst up quickly and quietly. She pulled out a sharp, lengthy knife. It shone brightly once when Sabrina breathed coolly on it and used her thumb and pointer finger to wipe some dust off. She was ready.
But not really for the fact that it was Jacob.
He came up behind her and tucked strong arms under her ribs, hard. Savrina was caght by surprise. And she didn't like it.
Think, how did that Miss Congeniality hit that guy again…the SING? Her eyes widened and a smile crept upon her face. It something like… the Stomach? She elbowed him hard in the tummy. Then… the foot? She stomped on his foot. Next the nose. She used the back of her hand to smack him in the face. Jacob's hands escaped to hold his heavily wounded nose. Last…that part. Her hand, without the knife, she whacked his guy part. The Scarlet Hand fort guards must've heard the commotion, because four burly men flew onto her.
When Sabrina stopped thrashing, there were scraped and cuts and fractures and hair in faces.
With one man holding each arm and one in the back as well as front, she blew a piece of hair out of her eyes. Her skin was caked with dirt and mud. The men took her to a majestic castle-like fort. One man with a dog head barked an order, and the man ruffed back. She was taken straight to Mirror.
"Starfish!" a welcoming voice shouted.
Sabrina glared at the pudgy face. (I haven't read the stories in a while…pretend he's in his mirror, not in the Book of Everafter.)
"I'm NOT a starfish." She said flatly and hard.
"No small talk, eh? I miss the old you, Starfish."
"I've grown. And learned a lot at the same time." Learned that you're the devil of my life.
"Oh really? Great! Let's learn the plan for getting your family dead, shan't we?"
Sabrina glared again.
"Let's start by killing off a few protectors of your little irritating, annoying family. First we'll start with this guy…" he held a remote and pointed it to a projector above Sabrina's head. A picture of Puck appeared, with grime and soil matting his hair. Sabrina's heart welled and her eyes began to tear. I will not show weakness. Her back straightened and she wriggled against the men's strong grasp. She growled when she remembered they had taken her knife.
"And how lucky! He's with us right now!" a few guards pushed in a weak, heavily breathing Puck. Their eyes met.
I think I'd rather die than live this life of adversity. Sabrina thought.
OK, I know that's really not a good thought, but it's a transition thought. I'll tell you, it'll get better for Pucky and Sabrina. Tomatoes, I will make sure to write longer and update faster… maybe. Review! I know this one was kinda suckish (at least on my terms) but bear with me! I don't have a lot of extra free time. Still, REVIEW!
