"Ah, but you girls are not in charge here, are you?" Jaime says, chuckling. "You will cast tthe spellll, even if it might mean Nikolii and Loren must torture you."
Niko shook his head "Your Highness I won't torture them. That is a line I will not cross." Akalia shook her head "Y..your majesty the spell will kill us both if we complete it. Please see reason. And living forever is horrible!"
"You arre the ones not seeing sense. You are in my home and I am asking you for a favor. You should be honored," Jaime states, frowning at them.
"Your Majesty, these girlsrls are the sun and moon come to life. Think of what you could cause if they are made to cast the spell."
Akalia whimpered, looking at her sister "What do we do?!" She sobbed out quietly
Siren shrugs helplessly. "I don't know, Ali," she says quietly, chewing on her lower lip nervously.
Ali whimpered then looked up St the king "Your majesty. The spell works so that you live until the death of the sun. The one in the sky not me. You will endure eons. See the death of everyone you love. Of humanity itself. You will be burned when the sun does and the world ends. It is a horrible fate. And you kill two young women in the process
Jaime frowns slightly, glancing at Niko and Loren. "Take these girls to their chambers while I consider their words."
Niko nodded, picking up Siren "You will be sharing a room..." he said quietly. Ali looked up at Loren, her pale blue eyes accusing and scared
Siren sighs in defeat, not fighting when he picked her up. Loren hesitantly picks up Akalia, muttering something that sounded like sorry.
Niko sighed, walking to the room they'd be staying in. * Akalia shook her head and murmured "No you aren't."
Siren bites her lip, unmoving otherwise. "I can't believe you're doing this. Aren't knights supposed to protect innocent women and so on?"
"I don;t want to do this Siren. My king... I am pledged to follow his commands. I haven't a chioce."
Siren glares at him, the look full of pure anger and hatred. "Pledged to him. Pfft. And I thought even you fool men here had any sense."
He growled softly, not responding
Siren bites her lip, feeling a bit guilty for saying that. "Sorry..."
Niko just shook his head
"Niko..." Siren sighs in defeat, curling up on her bed. She missed her and Ali's little cottage in the forest already. "I just want to be home without any of this trouble..." she whispers.
( (Bump) )
He nodded and touched her shoulder "I know..." Niko murmured
Akalia struggled in Loren's grip, tears falling "Please just let me go...."
Siren forces herself not to flinch away, leaning into the touch slightly and trying not to sob.
"I can't... I'm sorry," Loren says quietly, carrying her to the room.
