We walked along the muddied roads hoping to make it to Freil's cabin before nightfall. As we walked Freil hummed his jolly songs as Linkion tugged at his cap. His father had told him that if he ever had to see those nasty ears again he would cut em' off. Of course, it was his father's fault he had em' in the first place. He had gone off and taken a lady Lycath as his own. Now little did he know he'd gotten her pregnant. She gave birth to a boy who had them nasty ears and them powers his father dreaded so much. When his mum died his father beat him and tried to cut his ears off. He couldn't do it cause it reminded him so much of his wife so he told him to hide em'. Ever since he's worn a cap over em'. One time in the court some lads were making fun of him and pulling his cap right off his head. Me and Freil had been walkin' by and we noticed the behaver. We both marched right up to em' and told the stupid blokes to bugger off. All three of us learned what a beating was that day.
As we walked Freil had tired of singing and moved along to humming then to jumping up on me and Links backs and belting out lyrics. After he tired of that he moved to messing with Links ears by taking his cap off and petting em'. After a while Link got mad and shoved him onto the ground.
"bloody idiot" he shouted before storming off ahead.
"Is he ok?" I asked Freil. Freil was always made fun of by the boys in the court cause he was too loud or too happy all the time. I'd always thought that was what made us good. I was the one who thought about everything and made sure it got done. Link was always quiet but he was smart. The boy was probably the smartest in the court. His dad beat him for it.
"Here we don't need no smart boys we need tough boys" He would shout then spit at him. Freil had always been happy. He could make anyone laugh about anythin', even the tough ones.
"I couldn't tell ya" He replied to me, staring worriedly at Link. The three of us had been called to meet princess Villas. The three of us were top in our class in the court which meant we had to go and have a meet with Villa. Of course, her real name is Vanessa Villas but only the highers can call her that.
So we set out to the main court of Terrence. On the way there we would stop at Freil's family cabin in the Wilders. His folks were known to have loads of money cause his mum was a higher in the castle when she was just a youngling, They had lived in the cabin cause it was closer to the main court. Then his mum got pregnant and they moved to the court of Linktion, yes Link is named after the town.
Anyways his folks had agreed to let us camp out for a few days of rest in between. His dad wasn't too found with Link coming but we managed to convince him.
I watched as Freil walked over to Link. Link noticed him coming and pulled his cap tighter. I heard Freil say I'm sorry before I stopped listening. As soon as we get to the cabin I would busy myself so they could have a nice talk. Which really means yellin' till they both apologize. As I walked I heard the leaves rustle and the wind blow through the trees. Then my vision blurred.
I sat beside the tree in the dark. Then a shadow appeared, a monster by the looks. I looked into the eyes of the beast but the longer I stared the more he changed. He suddenly appeared not as a monster but as a boy. His eyes shone brightly. He screamed my name, then I saw the blood. He was holding his side as blood leaked from it. I couldn't move. Then his eyes lit up white and he froze. Another figure appeared. By the looks of it a girl with a crown on top her head. She held a sword, then another man appeared. He looked to be taller than the first but leaner. He also wore a crown. Just then the first boy screamed. I felt his pain, his heartbreak. I needed him.
"PLEASE" he pleaded with a small voice. His voice shook as he screamed out again. My name over and over again was shouted by them all. Kale Kale Kale. Just then another figure appeared. This one wore a black cloke. They removed it to reveal a small broken girl in the arms of a tall woman. Her face ran with scars. She looked into my eyes, her black ones boring into me. Black tears formed in her eyes and fell down her face. She held the girl tightly as she wept. Then I turned to see Link and Freil. Link held a broken Freil in his arms. His ears out and his blue eyes shining. Then Freils eyes lit up gold and he stood up. I wanted to go to them but I couldn't move. Just then the first boy appeared.
"R U N" he yelled. Name. All I could see was a name.
My eyes opened and I was back on the road.
"Mate?" Freil asked, now in front of me. Link was a few yards back staring at me with a concerned look.
"Another vision?" Freil asked. I nodded. I had been having visions since I was young. They were usually about stupid little stuff like tests. Then I had one the night my mum died. I had drempt that she was killed by a dark man who hid in the shadows. I told myself it was a dream. Then my dad came home hours later and told me mum had been in an accident. That was the last time the visions had been bad until now. As we arrived at the cabin I wondered who they were. There was one thing I couldn't stop thinking about as we entered the cabin. Who the bloody hell is Quinten.
