Four days had past.Nothing.I was begining to loose all hope.How...How am I going to get out of here? I kept on thinking, How I am going to get out of this God forsaken place.Then I remembered they couldn't have taken ALL of my weapons. My hidden blade was still on my wrist. I flicked my hand. I sighed. It was useless. Broken. I was trapped in this dark,dingy place with nothing but the chair that i was sitting on and a small, wooden table with a small , dim candle upon it.

I tried screaming and calling people's name's.Nothing.I tried praying.Nothing.There was nothing I could do.Not even my trusty hidden blade could help.

About an hour later

There was a knock at the door. "Come in." I said sarcasticly.

"Well there's no need for that sarcasm."

It was that complete and utter moron Robert de Sable.I hated him so much. My sister was probably dead because of him.

"What do you want?" I looked at him with anger.

"We are going to move you to a cell were you can have a bit of space and you will have a proper bed."

"What's the catch?"

"Nothing.Nothing just... well."

"Well... what?"

"You tell us were your Mother is."

"Why do you want my Mother? She hasn't done anything and she's not even an Assassin so why do you want her?"

"That's where you're wrong Crystal Amasi. Your mother IS an assassin. And she HAS done something very teriible."

"Oh yeah," Like I was going to believe HIM of all people. But I always had a feeling that my Mother was hiding something from me."What has she done then?" I said quite sarcasticly.

"Your Mother killed my brother."

"Well that was probably because he did something.That's if, what you say is true."

"OF COURSE IT'S TRUE. WHY WOULD I LIE ABOUT MY BROTHER'S DEATH? YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT IT'S LIKE TO LOSE SOMEONE." I looked down to hide my face. My eyes were filling with tears. "But you have, haven't you Crystal?...Your father."

I looked up at him, "Don't you dare mention my father-"

"This is the thing though, my brother did nothing he was a good man, he did everything by the book ,the only reason that I turned into .... what I am today, if it were.... is because I loved my brother dearly and I wanted revenge on the woman who killed him.Your Mother.I've traveled all across the world just to find her.. with the odd invasion and killings.Now I'm going to ask you this one more time before I move you to another cell.Where is your Mother?"

I couldnt believe it.I wouldn't.I won't.My Mother wouldn't kill an inoccent man.I knew she wouldn't.Would she?No. Of course she wouldn't.

"I'm waiting for an answer Crystal."

"I don't know." I said with a look of complete anger at him."Even if I did know where she went she would've moved by now, and even if she didn't I wouldn't tell you anyway. Why would I?"

"Pathetic little girl!"

"Just so you know,  I am going to be 22 in Febuary."

He just rolled his eyes.


Next thing I know they untied me from the chair and I fell to the floor.Their meals aren't exactly good for my energy levels.I got up, then they tied my arms behind my back.

"Don't you trust me to walk without my hands tied.I mean, you took all my weapons and I aren't exactly full on energy to kick all of your butts am I?Plus even if I had the chance to run I wouldn't know how to get out of here would I?"

".... I guess so. But I'm not taking that chance."


After a few minutes we arived at the new cell.They opened the door, pushed me in and untied me.

"Hey no need to push. Jeez." I rubbed my wrists.

"Welcome to your new cell." Was that a hint of sarcasm I detected?

"Snazzy.Nice place."

"Isn't it just?"

I sighed.  Oh Amala. I was alone.Again.Well at least I could walk around a bit and I had a bed. And the candle that I had was much more taller and lighter.This way I could plan my escape.
