((Awww, I thought you might get right on :( ))
(( Hehe sorry I was tired and being lazy :p ))
"NOO!" Oasis cried out as she watched Percy being taken down into the cellar. As her father strode into his lair, Oasis stormed after him. "Dad! You can't do this it's not fair!" Oasis shouted, face a boiling red. Oasis' father (I'm going to give him a name! :) )) just chuckled snidely to himself. "Don't worry sweetheart, it'll all be taken care of in no time. The elf will be dead, you'll be married to the finest banshee around, and we'll all live happily ever after!" he cackled with an evil grin upon his face. Oasis, now crying, stormed out of his lair. "Dad, I knew you were evil, but I had no idea you'd ever stoop this low!" she shrieked, storming out of the camp and into the forest. She ran a ways until she stopped, and dropped to her knees crying. While wiping away her tears, she knew she had to divulge a plan quickly, or she may never see Percy again.
Percy sighed down in the celler. He couldn't excpect Oasis to go agaisnt her dad, it would be unfair to her... but he hoped she would.
Lucy peered out from behind the trees. She was lost and up early, very early, the sun hadn't even set yet. but she had heard crying. Lucy wanted to go help, but she didn't want to get hurt... mabey this banshee was a murderer!!!! Lucy gasped before she could stop herself, and clamped a hand over her mouth.
Oasis whipped her head up. What had she just heard? Had her dad sent someone to spy on her? No, she was too far away from camp. He had more important things to worry about. But she had swore she heard someone gasp. Looking out into the forest, she called out, "Is anyone there? I propose no threat." she stated. She didn't want anyone to be afraid to approach her, but if danger was approaching, they would most likely attack in silence.
((Love Lucy by the way! Just adorable! :D ))
Lucy's mind was racing franicaly, a murderer, she has to be! Why else would she be crying... wait that doesn't make sesne. What if she is the desise, and doesn't want to be the desise and thats why she is crying? Got to be it! Oh no the desise! Lucy tryed to turn and run, but tripped over her own feet into the clearing. Seeing the banshee, she flung her arms up and cryed out, "Oh desise, don't hurt me!"
((I'll leave her description up to you, just remeber she's an elf :). I know I love her right!))
((La, lee, la, de dum, a bump so you can find it :) ))
As an elf stumbled into Oasis's view, her eyes were widened in surprise. Another elf? I thought Percy was the only elf left, hadn't the disese killed them all? "No, no don't worry, I'm not the disese, I'm Oasis. I know, I'm a banshee I must appear pretty scary. But it's alright, I'm friendly, and I won't bite." she joked, and smiled. "And you are?"
Lucy scrambled up and her head darted around, her body following her, like a puppy chasing their tail. Seeing a stick, she dove for it, scooping it up, Lucy turned back to Oasis and held it out in frount of her. Hearing her, Lucy tilted her head, confused. "Wait, but if you aren't the desise, then why are you crying? Oh wait you aren't now, are you better? Oh no, I asked the desise if it was feeling better, I hope the desise isn't! It'll come after me again. But you must be a desise, there is no other reason for you to be crying. Yes you are the desise. I'm Lucy! Oh no, I told the desise my name!" Lucy's arm holding the stick had dropped while she rambled, but she pulled it back up as she was remebered of the danger.
Oasis watched Lucy as she picked up a stick and rambled on. She couldn't help but chuckle to herself. "No, I'm not the disease. I was crying because my dad is going to execute someone tomorrow who means a lot to me, more than words can explain. He's an elf, like you. Though I thought he was the only one left. He said the rest of his kind was killed by an awful disease. I guess not, since you're here. I wonder if you know him. His name is Percy." Oasis told Lucy in a softened tone.
Lucy's jaw dropped. She had had so much to say... but it was all gone. She dropped the stick and ran foward, wrapping her arms around Oasis's waist. Lucy dropped back and looked up at Oasis, with her big gray eyes, the exact same shade as Percy's. "Percy... You know Percy?" Lucy's big puppy dog eyes pleaded with Oasis to say yes. All of a sudden Lucy dropped back, and turned around, wrapping her arms around herself. "No. Percy is dead. He died a long time ago." Lucy said with a seriousness an eight year old should never have.
"Lucy, I swear I know Percy. In fact, he's being held hostage in a cellar at our camp. I've been trying to come up with a plan to try and save him, but I don't think I can manage alone. Do you think you could help me? Please? The cellar is being guarded by the strongest banshee. I don't know how to sneak past him to get to Percy. Listen, I know we just met, and you probably don't trust me... But please, if anything do it for Percy's sake." Oasis begged, as her eyes began to well up with tears.
Lucy peeked around her shoulder and saw the tears. "Oh don't cry!" Lucy cried out, and flung her frail arms around her. "Percy's alive? He's my brother, but I thought my family was dead. Of corse I'll help." Lucy smiled, truly happy now. She pulled back and said, "Well, I have a sneakiness tallent. You know all elfs have a specail talent, Percy's is a bow and arrow... whats that called, aw never mind. ou never see him without his bow! He made that himself you know... oh right, mine is sneakiness, I can sneak in and get Percy out!" Lucy beamed, proud of herself.
((Ding dang, I forgot Percy again... he breathed! Its a mirical!))
Percy looked down, there wasn't much he could see, it was too dark. He gasped when a sharp pain hit his stomach, and he leaned back agaisnt the wall. It was just the desise, getting the best of him, not for the first time. He wondered what Oasis was doing right now, Percy hoped she wouldn't go against her dad... although deep down, he knew.
Oasis wiped the tears away from under her eyes. "Really? You can do that? Oh yay!" she cried out, embracing Lucy. "Okay, when evening hits the sky, I'll sneak you into camp and show you where the guard is. Then you can sneak Percy out, and we can all leave for good." she explained, and then heard a rustling in the bushes. Grabbing Lucy, she silently ran with her and hid behind bushes. Voices then emerged, " I think the camp is just up ahead. I can't believe that stupid banshee lied to us, did she not think we wouldn't find out? All of his stufff was just lying in the middle of a clearing.... ridiculous."
Oasis's eyes were widened. It was the government. They knew she had lied, and they were going to the camp to get her into trouble.
Lucy knew better than to speak, she had been in these types of situations before. Lucy knelt next to Oasis and held her breath.
Percy listen as noises came from above, he couldn't figure out quite what it was but, it was loud.
((I'll do the government people if you do her father (and the banshee people) ))
(( Sounds good! And her father's name... Rats I really liked the one you mentioned today..! You'll have to remind me :D ))
Oasis waited for the government to be out of hearing range. She knelt down next to Lucy. "Alright, we'll stick to the plan, though it may be a little harder with the government in our way... I trust you with Percy. Let's get going, I don't want to run into any more trouble..." she murmured softly, and stood up. She waited for Lucy before she began walking in the direction of her home.
Zayne ((this is going to be her "husband". just picture him as a strong, handsome, kinda dumb.. man! haha ))
Zayne combed his hair in the mirror. Fairies tended to him, making sure he looked his absolute best. In a day he was to marry the most beautiful banshee in all the land. He decided to head over to her camp to meet her. Most importantly, he wanted to make sure his attire for the wedding matched his soon to be wife's eyes.
((Okay, oh, I was going to use that name for the government officail... that okay? It is Ted O'Reily))
Percy strained in his bonds, but only got a kick in his stomach from the banshee. Percy doubled over best he could, as he was already on the floor. What is going on up there?
Lucy nodded and walked with Oasis to the camp. She saw it through the trees and pulled Oasis behind some bushes. Putting a finger to her lips she silently moved her way around the bushes towards the cellar.
The leader of the government offcails straightened his tie and walked into the camp. He called out, "Hello respectful banshees. We have cause to search this entire facilty for one banshee."
(( Yeah haha sorry that's what I meant! :) ))
((I looked up boy names from England, I found one I liked for Oasis's father! It's Cedrick. :p ))
Cedrick stepped forward. "I am the leader of this camp. Who are you looking for sir? Surely no one here has caused you any problems!" he stated in a firm tone.
Oasis nodded silently, and watched as Lucy made her way toward the cellar. Hopefully everything would go smoothly from here. Oasis walked into camp, hoping to go unnoticed by her father. She walked into her den, since her father was the leader she had her own private den for sleeping. She sat down on her bed, and kept the cellar in view from the corner of her eye.
Once Zayne finished getting pampered, he checked his appearance in the mirror and smiled. It was time to meet his fiance! He left his dwelling, and began walking toward the camp of his beloved.
((Sir Cedrick, that works!! :) ))
The government leader introduced himself, "Hello I am Ted O'Reily. We are looking for a young female banshee who was out in the woods this morning. She lied to us, and impeaded a fedral investigation." Ted looked the leader in the eye and said, "We must investigate her imetiatly."
Lucy snuck around the perimeter. Great, everyones attention is on the weird guy with the tie. Oh, I hope he isn't dangerous! If I get caught down there..." Lucy shook herself, she had to do this for her brother. Quickly, quietly, she snuck around, weaving between the houses, and zipped into the cellar.
Percy looked up. The hustle and bustle seemed to have stopped, and there were muffled voices from above. Sundenly the cellar door opened and closed. The banshee frowned and called out, "Hello? Whos there? No one is allowed to be down here." Sundenly there was a sqeak and a thump, the banshee fell to the floor. Percy's eyes widened, who was down here?
