Digging her heels into the ground, Willow raced down the side of the mountain in pursuit of the spy. Emmeth was about five yards ahead of her and counting."Halt!" he shouted at the escapee, sliding down a steep part of the mountain. The escapee ignored his shouted words and raced on, faster and faster, kicking up rocks and dust as he fled.
"She is not my "girlfriend". She is a friend who happens to be a lady," he answered.
"Same difference," smirked the traveler."Where am I?" a soft voice questioned from the other side of the tree. The thing tied to Emmeth's wrist twitched, and he realized that their adversaries had tied Willow's wrists to his.
"Will?!" the girl seemed equally surprised. "What are you doing here?"
Emmeth's instincts reacted, and he leaped in front of Willow, shielding her from the girl.
"Oi," the girl poked her head around him. "Will, is this your boyfriend or something?"
Willow rolled her eyes. "No, of course not."
"I'm Prince Emmeth of Tashra," he informed D.
D gave him a sarcastic look. "You're not dressed like a prince," she countered gesturing to his Shadow clothing.
"It is a disguise," he explained.
D arched an eyebrow at Willow, who nodded. "Thank you, Emmeth," she patted his arm and moved around him to get at D.
"Emmeth, this is my younger sister, Darrion," Willow introduced. "D, this is Emmeth. I'm helping him and his group of Resistance to get his throne back."
Darrion looked him up and down, her gaze intense. "At your service," she offered slowly.
His opponent, the taller traveler had walked over and was now speaking with Willow. He had neat black hair and dark eyes.
"Emmeth, this is Cole. He's a representative, along with me, of the Resistance. We're co-workers," Willow explained. "Cole, this is Prince Emmeth."
The boys nodded and shook hands. Cole seemed like a sensible sort, Emmeth observed.Willow grasped her sister's elbow and pulled her out of hearing distance of the boys. "D," she whispered. "I need to tell you something! Something is very wrong here!"
Interesting thing is, I wrote the bulk of this chapter back in October, I believe. I knew I wanted to introduce D and Cole, and so I wrote this :)
Working on costumes, I just ordered the print that I'm going to have Jenna Coleman sign, it's a print from The Snowmen, which I will be cosplaying from!
D and Ammelia are also working on their costumes, but I'm glad I already have mine! I wore it to the Fairmont Fair in October for Awana, so I've had it awhile. I had no idea it was going to be worn to meet the actual Clara!
