tJfaJ: Chapter 28I honestly had no idea how many countless hours passed without my knowing. For so long, all I was even remotely aware of was Miinyx mumbling to herself and growling irritably. Occasionally, she would give a cry of fury, and I felt the jolt of pain through my body that signified she had taken over and attacked something violently.
I begged her endlessly to allow me my senses back, or to at least tell me what was going on. Miinyx ignored me. Every essence of her being was intently focused on the surrounding world that I was so painfully unaware of. She was fighting hard against something. Judging by her shrieking and constant, random attacking, I assumed she was losing.
At last, she screamed, but remained still. I was sobbing, I could tell that, only because the need to do so was so overwhelming it was impossible for me to have been anything but crying hysterically.
Suddenlyso suddenly it physically hurt and made me completely dizzyMiinyx's voice went silent, and the w
tJfaJ: Chapter 27Surprisingly, I slept soundly through the night, with no nightmares or troubles at all. Miinyx allowed me to sleep much later than usual, and I thought her very kind for it, until I awoke and realized she was still asleep. She had simply been too exhausted to properly abuse me.
Still, I took the gift with a pleased smile, and laid comfortably and quietly in the silence for a number of hours before I decided to get up and get ready for the day. I tried on at least fifteen dresses and three costumes, admiring myself in the mirror for a minimum of ten minutes each. At last, I decided on a plain purple gown with pink on the trim, and with nothing better to do, I dug up my sketches for a dress modeled after the Count's book and set to work creating it.
At just after noon, Miinyx had awoken, but rather than yelling at me or forcing me around the castle to do her daily snooping, she settled for laying quietly in my mind and watching me work. I was almost through with the dressall the ri
tJfaJ: Chapter 26"Golly, Dimentio, slow down!" I cried desperately, tripping clumsily after his as he rushed down the halls. "What's the matter with you?"
The jester glanced at me over his shoulder, but never slowed his pace by the tiniest fraction. I was starting to get a little unnerved at his behaviorI couldn't quite recall the last time I'd seen him act this way, or even if I ever had. I could feel Miinyx growing very angry at the back of my mind. I speculated the only reason she hadn't forced me to attack the jester yet was her developing curiosity towards what exactly he was doing.
Finally, we reached Dimentio's hall of mirrors. He quickly found the trick mirror, swung it open, and pulled me inside before slamming it shut behind us. Before I could blink, I was thrown into the jester's bedroom, catching myself on his bed. I only turned around in time to see him slam the door shut. He was leaning against it, his back deliberately to me, breathing rather heavily. I had to admit, I was starting
