Conflict

Where… am I?

“Mistress, the guest awaits. Shall we give him a warm welcome?”

I hear footsteps in the distance.

“Mistress… Will we be together again? Like how we used to?”

Slowly I snapped out of unconsciousness, only to find myself chained. It’s never easy isn’t it?

“We can be a family again, right mistress?”

As soon as I regained feeling over my arms and legs, I found myself involuntarily flailing against the chains, trying desperately to break free only to fail miserably. Guess the easy plan never works.

“Right here mistress, the white wolf had been dying to see you…”

An unseen door screeched open. A strong draft wafted into what now seemed to be my jail cell.

It’s been a number of years since I last saw her face, or should I say their faces. The young blue mage and the little red witch; I can’t even recall their faces anymore! But as if fate hadn’t been cruel enough, there they are now right in front of me.

The blue mage spoke first.

“Riiya, have our accommodations suited your tastes? Wolves were meant to be chained you know…”

Tch.

“But enough about that, I know you’ve been dying to see the mistress. It’s been... Ten years? Twenty? I can’t even recall how you looked like until I found you. Hasn’t fate been cruel huh?”

“Shiine! Enough!” the red witch interjected.

She approached me, with the caution and grace of a young child. You could suppose the ten or so years hadn’t changed her attitude that much; at least that’s the fa├žade she’s showing me right now.

“Riiya right?” she said, her tone gentle and warm; almost as warm as the touch of her hand against my face.

“It’s been a long time now… How are you? I’ve missed you so much Riiya… So very much…” her smile was angelic, almost making the chains feel comfortable.

“Riiya… Let’s be... A family again… With my magic and Shiine’s magic... We can live forever! We can be happy for the rest of our immortal lives, just the three of us adventuring like we used to… It would be like Mochi mochi again; you, me and Shiine prancing around without a care for the world, only this time, the adventure never has to end!”

I turned my head in disgust. What magic? Magic that requires a payment of blood and life? Disgusting…

The slap that followed resounded like thunder in the mountains.

“Bastard wolf!”

Talk about moody…

“Shiine, dispose of him.”

“But mistress…”

“I do not want a trace of him anywhere in my mansion. The stench of his animal fur sickens me…”

She turned towards me, her face once again a visage of grace with a beautiful smile to boot.

“Oh, and Riiya, it was really nice meeting you again!”
