And yet: the beginning of another story (its about faries! !)
Finally deciding that I had nothing to lose, I hopped out of the cage. Before I could say anything I was flying through the air, the wind knocked out of me. When I got to looking down I saw that I was taller than the trees and they were getting closer. Panic filled me as I realized this, but then something caught me in the back of my shirt and hauled me up.
"Ewwwww, he was right. You don't have your wings yet, " said the girl who told me to get out of the cage. "What are you staring at? "
I was at a loss for words. My eyes were locked upon her fire red wings. In my stupor I didn't realize that we were flying over the forest at an alarming speed.
"Look, " she finally said taking me out of my trance. "Head Quarters"
I saw a big, no scratch that-a castle. It was jet black and seemed to shimmer. Its walls were the highest I had ever seen. There were tall towers and turrets, there were people holding crossbows up on the walls standing stock still, watching everything meticulously. It didn't scare me though; I didn't know what to feel. As I was thinking on why I felt that way the girl stopped abruptly, and we started to free fall. Now I was scared. So scared that I couldn't even scream. I was paralyzed with fear as I saw that we were going to land on stone. The wind making my eyes water and hair whip every which way. The girl whipped out her wings at the last possible moment, slowing our descent. As we land on the ground I started screaming at her.
"What was that for? You could have killed us! What if you dropped me? "
"First off calm down! Second if I dropped you I would just fly over and catch you. I'm actually kind of surprised; they usually puke and pass out when we land."
"I'm shaking like I've got an earthquake in me! You could have given me a little heads up! "
"If I told you that I was just going to dropp like a bomb on a stone wall would you have said yeah let's do it? "
She was right; I would have done whatever I could to keep from doing that. "Fine, truce."
"Truce, now let's go inside and get something to eat, I'm starving! "
She grabbed my wrist and stepped on the back of my knees making me collapse.
"What are you doing? " I screamed, trying to fight back.
"until we trust you, you will be shown around like this."
"Shown around like what? "
A black blindfold was slipped over my eyes and something was plugged into my ears. In my wrist I felt a shooting pain, I am pretty sure that I screamed. Now I was numb all over and couldn't feel a thing. Then something foul tasting was poured into my mouth, my tongue was numb and I couldn't taste the liquid anymore. She did the same thing to my nose taking away any feeling I had on my body. Then I realized that she had just taken away my five senses. Now I was just floating in a dark abyss, scared and alone.
