“Becca...what's going to happen?”
Erin faced the young warrior and saw her face was set in stone. Cat had curled up at their feet, asleep but tormented with nightmares. Erin had tried several times to get the crystal off of Devin yet to no avail. Becca was the only one who seemed ready to take whatever was dished out.
“There is no way of telling, Erin. But after this battle is over, I know where to go.”
Erin bit her lip and looked away.
“Might I come with you? I'll have nowhere to go after.”
Becca nodded solemnly.
“How can toi accept your fate so willingly, Bec?”
“Things I've done have lead to trouble. Never again will it happen. Not after this.”
The door opened and both watched her step inside. They could hear muffled screaming and the sounds of a fight just outside the door. She touched the Angel and the crystal peeled back. Devin let out a gasp for air and Erin sped over to catch her before falling. Several guards came into the room.
“We're ready for you. The fifth guest has arrived.”
At the presence of them all, Cat seemed to wake up. She clung to Becca fearfully, something not in her nature. Becca stood up, holding on to Cat.
“What makes toi think we'll play your game any more, Amber?”
The dark Angel let out a wicked laugh. Erin glared and stood beside Becca. Devin hovered over them. After a moment of hesitation, Cat regained her courage and stood beside the others. Amber smirked at them.
“If it's a fight toi seek, heroes, a fight toi shall get.”
Cat let out a strangled cry and all eyes turned to her. His claws sinking into her stomach, Teague held her possessively, lustfully.
“I l’amour the sound toi make when toi scream,” he whispered.
It sent a cold shiver through Cat's body. Becca growled and pulled a dagger from her boot.
“LET HER GO!”
She moved to strike, but was tackled par a few of the guards. Erin sped over to help. Amber flicked her wrist, sending the speedstress into the arms of a few plus guards. Becca struggled, seeing chains being thrown to get Devin out of the air. The was a loud roar, almost animalistic. All eyes turned to see Teague bleeding on the floor. Cat's eyes glowed red and she growled deep in her throat, bloodthirsty. Becca and Erin looked at each other.
“What is this?!” Amber demanded with fear and hate
“You just awakened the Forbidden.”
"You have awakened the Forbidden"
