"I was leaving anyway!" Anthony protested. "You're paranoid!"
At that moment, her brother was kneeling by some tracks nearby. He closed his eyes and tried to find his sister, trying to see through her eyes where she was.
Alethea heard a twig snap and jumped. "No... Okay. Another deal. You take me on your horse, and..."
(Brother's name, Lydre.)
Anthony gave her a weird look. "What? But you were just threatening me!"
"You d-don't understand!" she said desperately. "Please... I'll do anything!"
Anthony was really confused now. "But...what's going on?"
"I'll explain on the way!" she hissed. Then she jumped up on the horse. "Come one, you idiot!"
Anthony snarled and got up on his horse, kicking it into a gallop. "What the heck is your problem?!"
"I have quite a few!" she spat back as the horse started to gallop.
Anthony allowed his horse to run about a mile before stopping it abruptly. "Now explain yourself!" He demanded.
Thea ignored him, kicking the horse on. "Shut up!"
He gave a loud, short whistle and his horse stopped, standind still as a statue, and refusing to move for anything. "Talk."
She spun around to face him. "Are you mental?!"
"No, but I'm starting to think you are." Anthony growled. "Now tell me or I'm throwing you off this horse and leaving you here."
Thea sighed. "There's a very angry elf following us. He just happens to be engaged to me. He's also my brother. Now move!"
Anthony crossed his arms. "If you give me one more order..." He shook his head. "My knightly behavior only goes so far. I don't take to being ordered around and threatened."
"Well too bad, sunshine!" she spat. "Move! Seriously, he'll just kill you."
(Okay, if you wouldn't mind, I'd rather her not say something like that about her brother. I think it's better for her not to assume he'd go to such extremes.)
"Well too bad, sunshine!" she spat. "Move! Seriously, it's for your own good."
Anthony shook his head. He picked her up in his arms and dropped her lightly on her feet on the ground. Talt."
"He's looking for me! Go!" she almost screamed.
