Chapter Twelve: Faelan
“Sir, she still won’t eat.
“What are you feeding her?”
“The rice bowls.”
“Hmm, if she doesn’t eat, she’ll die. So, leave it and I will take care of it.”
“Yes, Sir.” The Reaper says and runs off.
I strut over to the tent where the girl is staying and head in. Her once luminous skin is now yellow and pale.
“If you won’t eat, you’ll die.”
“That’s better than being here with a Reaper.”
“Now, you stay calm. Or else.” I drop an apple down into her lap and leave.”
“Aala, my name is Aala.” She whispers so quietly I can barely hear.
“Aala.” I whisper to myself, the word rolling off my tongue. It has a melody so soft and sweet.
Later that evening I head back over to check on Aala, I unzip the tent to find her asleep with an apple core in her hand. She looks so peaceful, an overwhelming urge to kiss comes over me. I shake my head trying to get rid of, but it latched on strong. I kneel down a brush my lips against her forehead. She stirs in her sleep and turns over. I take one more longing look before I leave. Back in my own tent I start to write another letter to Loki. I start with the boring news about the battle. Then I get to the news about Aala and sign the letter. With a wave of my hand I send over the letter to Loki. No more than a minute later it comes back with a response.
If you really sparked with this girl Aala then she must have too. Now you have the power to keep her so make sure you use it. Fiona says her mission is going successfully. The ploy she created for her death is working just as we hoped. The girls are on their quest and one in need of help, will come for the girl. The other still has the gauntlets which YOU failed to get but Fiona will be working on that. Wearing the disguise of Aala she will try to get the gauntlets from Ma’at’s champion. When she succeeds you must get them to the map and revel the path to my prison. Then using them set me free and I will rule Midgard, er, Earth.
I finish reading the letter and put it with all the others. Then I close my eyes and fall asleep.
