Tamwyn and I rushed towards the prison, just to meet Flame halfway. “You’re coming with us.” I said shortly, and grabbed him roughly by the shoulder and began dragging him along with us.
“Where are we going?” he asked, but we were already there, so I didn’t bother to respond to his question. We stormed right in there, past the guards and straight to her cell. She sat up instantly and looked at us expectantly.
“Why are you here?” I asked, almost angrily.
She raised her eyebrows. “I am assuming that I am here because I am an Earth and this is war,” she replied tonelessly. I began to speak, my voice hot, but Tamwyn cut across me.
“What she meant to say was, why are you in our territory? Why did you cross the boundaries?”
“Ah,” She smiled. “That is the question, isn’t it? But first I must ask a question of my own. Where can I locate a young woman named Starfire, and a young man named Tamwyn?”
“That would be us,” I replied breathlessly.
“Well then,” she said, only looking mildly surprised. “I have a very short but important message for you two, then I would very much like to be given better housing and food.”
“We’ll see” I grumbled. “Message first.”
She looked at us full in the face, green eyes blazing.
Tamwyn’s face blanched, and I am sure mine did too.
This does not bode well.
