    Lady Lauren landed with a resounding thud on the hardwood floor
    "quiet will you ... this is not the time for mediocre games"
    " i -..."
    a glare thrown over my shoulder at her was all it took for us to continue in silence. It wasn't that i was been particularly rude, no, i just needed silence in order to concentrate so we could make it out of here alive and if i were to slip and miss some minor detail we could not survive in a fight after all she was no help god company maybe but if I knew anything about the young lady of Maddison Palm halls it was that she was far too naive and faint hearted to fight back even when danger snuck upon her. The sound of the wind outside rusting the leaves made my task a bit more complicated as I pushed my ear further into the floorboards ... was that ... was that footsteps I heard or ...

    "cant talk eeehhh...dont worry darling I'll help you out ... wont we Dorian"
    the speaker had a voice as sharp and ugly as the dirty blade caressing my cheek. His eyes though i realized werent aimed at me but further behind at lady lauren and lust seemed to shine from them
    " aaaahhhhh the young Lady .... how we missed you at the butchering party we had in your fancy halls this afternoon ... I'm sure your parents would've loved to see me extend my appreciation , would they not"
    releasing the blade with a stinging cut he made his way behind me where she stood tears streaking her swollen face
