The next few days go by pretty uneventful. They even post guards outside my door making sure I get no visitors. I pretty much just keep to myself and just work. The weekend comes and I am all packed up ready to leave. As I am passing by the training yard leaving I see everyone huddled around someone. I figure someone got hurt or something during practice. Then I notice Minerva standing with them. She looks my direction and stands making her way over to me. When she gets to me I ask,

"What happened, did someone get hurt?"

"No that's Ariya, she failed another ritual. Apparently she heard you were leaving and was going to hurt herself. Luckily one of her friends caught her before anything bad happened."

"Wow she is taking this really hard."

"Do you want to go talk to her and at least say bye?"

I look over seeing Daniel holding her in his arms as she is crying. I say,

"That's probably a bad idea. I really upset Daniel pretty bad this time."

"I think you should. It might help if she at least hears from you before you leave."

"Do you really think it will help?"

"I do"

We make our way over to her. As I am walking I step in a puddle of what I guess is dragon's blood that spilled out of a goblet she spilled or threw. I pick up the goblet carrying it over to them. People look over at me and get quiet. Ariya is crouched on the ground holding her knees with her head down. Daniel has his arms around her and I crouch down next to them. He looks to me and is about to say something but Minerva stops him. I reach over placing my hand on her shoulder,

"Ariya, I just wanted to come say goodbye before I leave again."

She looks up to me her face stained with tears. Her lips seem to have a slight reddish tint to them probably from drinking the blood. I give her a warm smile and she just lunges at me hugging me. As soon as our bodies touch a huge pulse of energy goes off knocking everyone around us to the ground. We both begin to feel the brands immediately begin burning themselves back on our bodies.

Both of our clothes are smoking and she ignores the pain of the brand as she continues to hug me. Then she just begins laughing which makes me begin to laugh as everyone looks to us dumbfounded by what just happened. Ariya leans back wiping the tears from her eyes still chuckling. I look down at my chest seeing the brand again saying,

"Ow...Well, damn." We look to each other and I smile thinking to myself "Well, lets do this then."

She hesitates then chuckles saying,

"Oh, you are doing this. We are not breaking this again."

I look to her in with uncertainty,

"D-Did you just -"

She grins and says in my head,

(Yep, I can hear your thoughts now bitch.)

Daniel leans over to me grabbing my shoulder saying,

"You are taking extra classes of Mr. Drakes meditation class."

I grin to him,

"Yes dad"

He gives me grin as he stands saying,

"Well I guess you are taking those bags back to your room."

Ariya grabs one of the bags as she stands,

"Let's g -"

Suddenly a loud thunder clap goes off scaring everyone. She drops back to the ground holding her head. It begins to rain even though the sky was perfectly clear before. Quickly I realize we are standing in a field like she said in her dream. I crouch down and take her hand saying,

"Come on we need to get out of this"

She reaches up wrapping her arms around my neck. I pick her up in my arms already feeling my strength returning and start running to get her out of this. Everyone seems to scatter running different directions. As we are running Ariya starts having a conversation with me telepathically,

(Take me home please)

"That's a really long run, we should probably wait inside the school till this stops."

(I just don't want people to see me like this)

"Okay, let me take you some place safe then."

She continues to hold on to me as we make our way into the school. The storm seems to be a bit worse than before. We make our way through the school to the library. I don't think she knows where we were going she just kept her face buried against my neck. I head up the stairs and she looks now noticing I am going up stairs. She says,

"Why are we here?"

I set her down saying,

"You will see"

I open a hidden door behind one of the book shelves and enter. She slowly walks in behind me as I say,

"We should be safe in here"

She looks around at the hidden room. It almost looks like an Egyptian harem room. There is purple and red silk couches and silk hanging from the ceiling. There are a few racks of different type of clothes. Lots of different pillows laid all over the place. It is lit by floating balls of light spread throughout the room. She looks around in awe saying,

"What is this place?"

"It's a hidden room the serfs use as a storage and lost and found."

"It's amazing."

All this stuff is what we have collected over the years that students leave behind or lose."

"Does my brother know about this place?"

"I'm sure he does"

She walks over looking at some clothes on a rack. I grab a towel from one of the boxes and start drying myself off saying,

"Why don't you find some dry clothes to change into."

She looks back to me,

"I am not changing in front of you"

I chuckle and point over to a dressing screen in the corner of the room.

"Change behind that, it's what it's there for."

She gives me a skeptical look. I sigh walking over grabbing some clothes for me saying,

"Fine I will do it, you can change out here. We might be here a while is why I suggested it"

"No, I will go"

She takes a while going through the different sets of clothes first asking me if they are clean. I reassure her they are. She then steps behind the screen to change as I find me some clothes. I go simple and comfortable with just a pair of pajama pants with a t-shirt. While she is back there changing I hear her phone go off. She answers,

"Hello....Oh, I am with Fabien.... Yeah we are in the library. Did you know about the secret room in here?"

Not really wanting others to know about it I ask,

"Who are you talking too?"

"Daniel"

"Oh, tell him I am sorry about earlier."

"Okay... Fabien said he-"

Another loud thunder clap goes off startling her. She ends up dropping the phone and I hear her shuffling around trying to pick it back up. Doing so she accidentally knocks down the changing screen. She looks to me in shock as she is standing there in just pink lace bra and panties. She yells,

"Turn around!"

I quickly look the other way and I can hear Daniel calling for her on the phone. She picks it up telling him she is okay. I grin actually seeing her where most of her body isn't covered with clothes and think,

(Wow, she does have a great body.)

I suddenly get hit in the back with a pillow. I start to turn around and she shouts,

"Don't you dare turn around!" She then finishes up with Daniel saying, "Oh, nothing. Yeah we are fine... Okay I will, bye."

She hangs up and a couple second later another pillow goes flying by me as she says,

"What about my body?"

I chuckle still facing away saying,

"You know, I really hate that you can read my mind now."

"Now you know how I felt. I am dressed now."

I turn seeing her in small pink and white what I guess is sleeping shorts with a white tank top with a weird pink symbol on it. I just grin and nod thinking that looks good too. She just squints her eyes at me. She begins walking around again looking at all the stuff asking,

"So you got this from all the students that went here?"

"Yeah and some teachers. I guess when you are rich stuff like this is easy to dispose of. None of us could ever afford anything like this."

"Why don't you keep it?"

"Some people do. I don't really see the point of it. I will never go anywhere nice enough to wear anything like this."

She looks to me asking,

"Have you ever been anywhere else other than the school and where ever you moved too?"

"Not really, most of my life was spent at this school. I mean we were allowed to go to the beach or the amusement park. But no I have never been out of the city."

"Wow that's kind of sad."

"It's the life of a serf."

She tries sitting across from me on a chair then another thunder clap goes off shaking the school. She immediately stands and sits next to me grabbing a blanket covering her legs. She looks to me asking,

"Are you mad that you got bonded with me again? I know you really didn't want this."

"Actually not really, I thought I might be but I would rather it be me than some other guy getting bonded with you."

She chuckles,

"So you were worried about me getting bonded with another guy?"

I hesitate realizing what I just said,

"What, that's not what I meant."

She chuckles,

"Uh huh"

"Whatever, I just want you to be with someone who can protect you."

"So what if I got bonded with a female?"

I grin,

"That depends, is she hot?"

She pushes my head laughing,

"Perv." She then gets a serious look "You know Elizabeth really likes you. She thinks you like her too."

"Well I did, I mean. Do you think it's possible to have feelings for more than 1 person."

"Yeah I guess." She looks down at the blanket fiddling with it saying, "You know we can't -"

"Yeah I know. That's the main reason I didn't want this bond."

I feel a slight bit of reluctance and jealousy as she says,

"Why haven't you tried to get with Elizabeth if you like her?"

"We have talked about it actually. She is actually already engaged and her parents would never allow her to be with a serf."

She looks back to me,

"She is engaged? How come I didn't know?"

"It's an arranged marriage, I don't think she wanted anyone to know."

"Well my parents wouldn't allow me to date you either, I mean a serf."

"Yeah I figured that."

Another thunder clap goes off and she leans against me. I place my arm around her and we talk a while longer before falling asleep.

That night I have a nightmare where it's storming outside like last night. I am standing in the middle of a huge field. Covering the field are a hundreds of dead bodies. Among the bodies I see Daniel, Minerva, Donovan and Samantha. Then I see Ariya leaned against a huge piece of stone debris bleeding from her head. Standing just in front of her over the dead bodies is a completely black figure with glowing blue eyes. All his veins in his skin seem to pulsing blue energy as.

He turns towards me as he begins laughing maniacally. Electricity begins to flow through his body as lightning begins to strike him from the sky. He begins to glow brighter and brighter as a loud thunder clap scares me awake.

I wake up and can still hear the storm outside. Ariya and I are both lying sideways on the couch as she cuddled up to me facing towards me. She is shaking and moaning in her sleep like she is having the same nightmare I was. I hug on to her whispering,

"It's okay, it's just a dream. You don't have to be afraid."

After seeing her dream I begin to feel a little nervous about it as well. I look down at her with her head buried in my chest. I kiss the top of her head and quietly say,

"You actually make me wish I wasn't born a serf"

She squeezes me a bit more as she moves like she is waking up. Barely awake she looks up to me saying,

"Did you say something?"

"No, just go back to sleep."

She closes her eyes and sleepily says before falling back asleep,

"Liar"

I smile and we both end up falling back asleep. The next morning I wake up and she is gone. The next few days end up going by then summer vacation starts. All the students are allowed to leave to visit their families. We all have about 2 months to do whatever. Since I have never known my family and pretty much only lived here this is where I usually stay. One day Minerva comes and visits me in my room. She asks,

"So Fabien, what do you plan on doing for your vacation?"

"Probably nothing, I usually just stay here till school starts back up. This is my home and all of you are pretty much my family."

"Would you and your two friends David and Jason like to go on a cruise?"

"A cruise? Like on an airship?"

She smiles,

"Yeah, and yeah, we still have the tickets we were planning on giving out at the tournament. We figured you could use some fun and relaxation away from this school. The tickets were just going to waste here anyways."

"Wow really? You would do that?"

She pulls out the tickets from her hand bag saying,

"Of course, here take them."

She hands me the tickets and I take them hugging her. We talk a bit longer then I quickly run off to find the guys letting them know where we are going. They seem to be even more excited than me to go. We all get packed and get taken to where we need to go the next day.
