Cedrick frowned. He knew immediately it was his daughter they were after, she was the only one who had been that far away from their camp. Cedrick cleared his throat, "I believe sir, that it is my daughter you are after. I shall fetch her for you immediately!" he stated, and immediately bellowed out, "OASIS! Into the clearing.... NOW!" he shouted. It was so loud, the ground trembled when he spoke.
Oasis stepped out of her den sheepishly and tiptoed into the clearing. She immediately noticed the government officials, they were the ones she had lied to in the forest today. Gulping, she walked until she stood in front of her father. "Y-yes dad?" she murmured.
"These men here told me that you lied to them today about a federal investigation. I will leave them to punish you in any form necessary. Just make sure you are back for your wedding tomorrow afternoon." Cedrick ordered, shoving Oasis toward the government officials.
Zayne strode across the forest, believing he was the most handsome creature to have ever walked the planet. After a few minutes of walking, he arrived at Oasis's camp, just to see her standing in front of government officials.
Ted didn't pay any attention to the man who had walked into the clearing. "Sir, we do not require her to come with us, just to answer some questions." Ted turned to Oasis and glared at her, "So missy, where is that elf? He is very important to sciene. Did you know that occording to all records of the desise, it gets worse the longer they have it? That elf, he should be dead." Ted watched carefuly for her reaction. "We may be able to save him."
Percy squinted into the darkness A squeak, who squeaks when they hit someone in the head? Percy's eyes widened as he felt his left hand freed. Aloud he said, "A squeak. Sneakiness." his right hand was freed, then both feet. "Lucy...?" A little girl through herself into his lap and Percy smiled with happiness. then his brow furrowed, "Lucy, it's not possib-" Lucy leaned back with a finger to her lips, and whispered, "They can hear!" Percy nodded and tryed to stand, just to fall back down.
Cedrick just rolled his eyes and watched from a distance.
Oasis was nervous, but she tried her best not to show it. "Listen I'm sorry, but he's trapped in our cellar. He's to be executed tomorrow morning." she stated, hoping Lucy had freed Percy. If it was anytime to make a quick get away, it was now. She knew they wanted him for testing, they weren't good people. But she didn't know that the disease was growing more severe.
Zayne saw that the government had come. He stood from a distance, looking at each banshee and thinking, wow, I'm the best looking one here. (( As you can tell, he's very obsessed with his appearance!! ;) ))
((Really? I had no idea he was obessed with his appearnce! :) ))
Lucy looked up at the cellar then back at Percy who lay doubled over on the floor. "Common Percy, we have to go, the mean desise people are here!" She whispered quickly trying to pull him up.
Percy lay on the floor, his breathing heavy. It's never been this bad before. Percy struggled up to his feet, usiing Lucy and the wall for support. He grabbed onto the lader and pulled himself up, just to fall back down.
Ted's eyebrows raised, "You cannot excute an elf! They are very rare!" Ted waved at his men, and several went to the celler pulling it open. After a second, they pulled an elf out who seemed frozen in shock, then she started to struggle. "Look, there are two!" The man said excitly pulling the other elf out, he was limp, but seemed to be trying to get to the other elf. Ted smiled and walked up to the limp one, "We have you finaly, no more running."
Cedrick stormed up to Ted shoving his finger pointedly into the man's chest. "The execution is taking place whether you like it or not! He commited a crime against my daughter and he needs to be punished!" he bellowed loudly. Noticing Lucy, he became angrier. "There are two?! Then she must be executed as well for sneaking into our camp!" he shouted. ((Hope that's okay, he's on an angry rampage!))
Oasis saw Percy and Lucy being exposed and tears began streaming down her face. She ran up to the government man who held Percy. "Let him go!" she shrieked trying to grab Percy, who appeared very weak. She was only shoved aside, the man was stronger than her.
Zayne was in awe of everything going on around him. He was simply, fascinated! He sat down and watched everything. How did these government people keep their suits so neat and tidy? He had to get himself one!
((It's fine, totaly what he would say! Oh, and I love Zayne!))
Lucy kicked and flailed her arounds around, but they were holding her away from their bodys and off the ground, she was conecting with nothing. "Percy.." She whimpered.
Percy strained towards Lucy, he could barley make himself think. He hadn't been in doors in eight years, the cellar combided with the desise, he couldn't do much. Still he pulled out towards Lucy, the government man just held him, needing to do nothing more.
Ted snorted at the girl. "As you can see he is very weak. It won't take long for him to break down." Looking to the leader, "Well you can't stop us. Take 'emin boys." The men started to haul the elfs into the woods.
(( Haha thank you! I am having fun with him! :D ))
Cedrick grumbled. "Fine, do what you must. Just make sure you kill him off as soon as you can." he muttered, then sulked back into his den, feeling somewhat defeated. At least it was out of his hands at this point.
Oasis jumped onto one of the government officials, sobbing. "You can't take them! Please! At least take me with you!" she cried out, voice straining in desperation. (( They are going to take her because she lied about Percy right? ))
Zayne stood up abruptly as he Oasis, his fiance running after them. "Don't leave me, my love!" he exclaimed running after Oasis. He grabbed her by the strands of her hair. "I'm your fiance by the way!" he added, stroking her hair and tattered clothing.
((Oh, duh! Sorry, I forgot!))
Ted looked at the girl. "Right forgot about you. For impeading a fedreal investigation, we will take you in." Turning to her fiance, he said, "If you want to be arested, you can keep with us, and we will charge you with obstrecting justice." Ted singnaled to the men and they took the banshee and the elfs, and dragged them into the woods. Tad called in for a helicopter.
Lucy trembled and screamed at them, "Let me, uh, us go! You mean desise people, don't infect us!" Lucy scrambled and kicked, but got nothing except chuckles.
Percy tugged on the man, but was weakening by the mintue. Black spots filled his vision, yet he shook them out and gathered his strenght. Throwing himself at the man, he toppled him and quickly he ran to Lucy, jerked her out of his grip and went to Oasis, he reached out to touch her, and was jerked back by several hands. He cryed out in pain.
Cedrick went back to his den and closed his eyes. He was now at peace, now that that treachorous elf and his disgrace of a daughter were gone from his presence.
As she was roughly grabbed by one of the officials, she went limp. She saw Percy reach out to touch her, and she held out her arm, only to have it thrust away from her. "P-Percy." she choked out, still crying. She attempted to kick and punch the officials, but it did nothing. "Stop it! You can't hurt him it's not fair!" she cried out, as a helicopter was circling above them, creating a loud whirring noise.
Zayne shrugged. "Sure why not! Maybe I'll get on the cover of Mystical Creatures Weekly magazine!" he exclaimed, jumping into the arms of one of the officials. He tilted his head back and cried out, "I'm famous world! I'm famous!" Then, he laughed a creepy psychotic laugh.
(( It's ok! :-) ))
The officail back up a little under his suden weight. Ted looked at the banshee, then rolled his eyes. "Take him in." He waved the helicopter down and they landed in a clearing. Ted opened the door, and the men shoved the two elfs and two banshees in.
Lucy was frozen now. They had never gotten this close. What was she to do? Sneak away? It was possible, Lucy could get away, but... she couldn't leave her brother. In fact she couldn't leave her new friend either.
Percy dropped back, complety out of energy. Black spots filled his vision and dispite his attempts, he finaly passed out.
((I'm just going to do Lucy now until Percy wakes up!))
(( Sounds good! I'm going to just do Oasis and Zayne for now :) ))
Oasis was shoved into the helicopter in between Lucy and Zayne. To be honest, she was rather disgusted that Zayne was even here. Who did he think he was? She gave Lucy's hand a small squeeze, in attempt to comfort her in the slightest bit. Soon the helicopter flew off and her breath quickened. She hated heights, at least she wasn't on the end. Trying to distract herself, she glared at Zayne. "Why are you even here?" she hissed. "I. Don't. Love you!" she cried out.
Zayne just smiled showing off his pearly whites. "I'm here to follow you my love, so perhaps one day we can get married!" he exclaimed, deciding not to add the part about wanting to become famous. "And don't worry dear, you'll soon love me. You've hardly met me yet darling!" he said putting his arm around her.
((Yea, I'll only post short liners for Ted, he is a very small part of this, or big, depending on how you look at it. :) ))
Lucy was squiched between Percy and Oasis. She bent over Percy's limp body and shook him slightly. "Percy..? Percy, wake up!" Lucy shook him harder, then turned to Oasis, tears in her eyes. "He isn't waking up. Why isn't he waking up?"
((Whoops, forgot Ted!))
Ted leaned back, telling the copter to take off. He sat back with a smiled and drank his coffee.
Oasis shoved away Zayne's arm. "Do not touch me!" she growled, turning her back to him. She gave Lucy a small hug. "It's okay Lu, he's been a cellar for a day, he's probably just tired. I'm sure he'll wake up soon." Oasis murmured, praying that she was right. What would she do without Percy? She felt terrible, this was all her fault.
Zayne's eyes were filled with hurt, his ego slightly rejected. How could she not want to be touched by him? He was beautiful, how could she not want someone as beautful as he to touch her? When she turned her back to him, Zayne crossed his arms, and stayed silent.
Lucy gluped and took a deep breath, trying to make herslef believe that Oasis was right. She turned and looked over at the weird guy. "Hi weird guy. You look mad, you could be... no one good ever gets mad, right?" Lucy asked Oasis then turned back to him, "Then if you are mad, you are bad. Being mad is really bad. You are a really really bad boy!" Lucy's eyes went big and she gasped, covered her mouth, and hid behind Oasis, "Y-you, must b-be, a really really bad desise man!"
Oasis laughed at Lucy's remarks. "You've got the weird part right. And he's creepy." she added. "He's upset because I don't love him. And don't worry he's not a disease man. Just a creepy man obsessed with his appearance!" Oasis joked, still making sure to keep a careful eye on Percy in case he woke up.
Zayne narrowed his eyes toward Lucy, and gave Oasis a hard glare. "Don't worry hun, I'm not a disease man. And I'm not mad... at you. Just Oasis. " he mutttered, continuing to stare at Oasis. They would be perfect together, he just knew it. Why oh why didn't she love him like he loved her? "Hey! I'm not obsessed, I just.. think it's important to look your best." he grumbled combing his hair.
Lucy still trembled behind Oasis espescaily when she heard he was mad at Oasis. "Don't you be mad at my friend! She's nice and wonderful, and lovely, and - and - um... everything!" Lucy frowned at him, he was a bad boy.
Ted let the helicopter land, then blindfolded all the prizoners, even the unconsious elf. He had their hands tied behind their backs and each had a gaurd holding their arm. They all walked out and through an ealbort series of tunnels.
As the helicopter landed, Oasis was grabbed by one of the officials, blindfolded, and hands tied behind her back. They were then led somewhere. It troubled her that she couldn't see. She relied on her vision for everything, and now it was taken away. "Where are we?" Oasis muttered, becoming agitated.
Zayne was blindfolded after Oasis. "What's this for? Now I can't see how I look! A sacrilage I tell you!" he grumbled, as his hands were soon after tied behind his back. As was led away, he tripped over what he guessed to be a rock, and fell in the dirt. "My pants! Ruined!" he cried out in distress.
Ted sighed at the banshee. "Get. Up." The gaurd draged him up and pulled him foward. With a sigh, Ted kept walking until they got to cell. It was obviously perpared for one elf, but he shoved them all in. He cut off the male banshee's bonds, leaving his blindfold, and left it to him to untie the rest.
Lucy fell as they shoved her in and yelped as she landed wrong. She started to cry, this was a very bad day.
