"But he needs me," she said to Arkasel weakly struggling to get off the bed. "I'm his only friend. He can't live without me," she protested. "He's my only family Arkasel," she said with a sob that made her wince, her face hurting from the last beating he had given her, although it was just one of many since she was a child when her vampire companion had abducted her.
"Alright sir," the man nodded as he exited the room again to return with some clothes for the girl. They weren't appropriate for a woman her size but with draw strings the pants would fit for the most part. Once he settled it beside Arkasel he left quietly, leaving Arkasel and his injured friend alone.
Even as battered as she was she occasionally muttered things like 'no, please... I' and 'what did I do?' as she occasionally jerked from his touch. It was more a whimper of a past memory that did it. It would be hours before she even became partially conscious.
For Charlotte it was hard to open her eyes which made her fight harder and try to push herself up. "Where is Elijah?" she said immediately reaching out to find out about her long time abuser out of habit.
Charlotte nodded as his siblings stayed soaking. “You’re next to Mistress Violets room,” she said as she lead him to his room. It was expansive and filled with softness and his meager belongings. “She’s right through that door if you want to see her,” she advised him.
As Charlotte started to waddle out of the room she looked over her shoulder toward him and wanted to say something taking in a breath in but just let it go.
Donnie looked good Laria and Red who were lolligagging. “She lies to you about the fiancé?” Laria queried her elder brother. “I wonder why,” she said simply standing up to walk out with the limping brother.
They would be transported to the new estate which was as big as the other but instead of being escorted to slave quarters they were escorted inside and to baths with healing bath oils. “When you are done,” Charlotte started. “I’ll show you to your new rooms,” she finished as she left them to soak.
Laria gave Red a look as the pair reached the door toward the garden. “I was not expecting to see that from that man,” she said.
Charlotte side-stepped from the bump but leaned into him holding his arm. “Admit it, you’re pretty excited too,” she smiled to him.
