eragon b4 chapter 5Chapter 5. Rescue and attack.
Eragon groaned as he woke. He was hurting all over from the previous round of torturing. He was laying on the floor in the circular room. The day before, Eragon had seen Oromis for he had attempted to rescue him. They had failed though. It had now been three days since Eragon had spoken to Oromis through Saphira's mind.
Galbatorix stood over Eragon and grinned at him. "Time for you to be whipped now." He said pleasantly. Eragon fought back the temptation to groan or yell. Galbatorix picked Eragon up by the shoulders carelessly. Eragon winced and screwed up his face in pain. He was glad that the elves weren't watching that day. He was dragged over to the post where his hands were tied so that he could be whipped.
He bowed his head before the whipping started. When the first whip hit his back, he closed his eyes and tried desperately to ignore the pain and to think of Saphira who was near Uru'baen to rescue him. He opened his eyes and found himself standing
eragon b4 chapter 4Chapter 4. To the rescue
Saphira let out a mournful keen as the image of Eragon disappeared. She didn't know whether or not her rider would survive this sort of torturing and Eragon had fallen unconscious at the same time that the image failed. Saphira couldn't tell if Eragon was already dead or not for the spell that Galbatorix cast stopped her from telling unless someone told her or she saw for herself. She didn't know whether Eragon had just fallen unconscious or died.
"Is he..." Arya trailed off. She couldn't bring herself to ask whether or not Eragon was dead. All the elves were looking at Saphira for her answer. She expanded her mind so everyone could hear.
'I don't know. The spell that Galbatorix cast stops me from knowing.' Saphira sounded really worried.
Oromis ran his hands through his long silver hair that shone in the light from the setting sun.
Saphira receded from the connection to the others and only stayed in the minds of Arya, Oromis, Glaedr and Blodhgarm.
'We should g
eragon b4 chapter 3Chapter 3. Connection
Eragon groaned as yet another whip hit his back. It had been two days since his attempt to escape and Galbatorix was torturing him worse than ever. He was absolutely furious that Eragon had stolen his dragon egg and sent it somewhere that he knew not. Galbatorix sat in front of Eragon and was looking into his eyes. "Tell me where the elven sanctuary is." He repeated for the millionth time it seemed to Eragon.
"No." Eragon gasped as five whips were given to him. Galbatorix had decided that the spell he had cast to show the elves what was happening to Eragon should stay and it continued to run since Eragon's attempt at escape. His bandages hadn't been changed since then, having the same ones put on after being tortured, just making his wounds hurt even worse. He hadn't eaten in that whole time either. Murtagh was over at the wall as he usually was.
"Tell me." Galbatorix said yet again.
"No." Eragon only managed to murmur. He bowed his head with pain as he received a
eragon b4 chapter 2Chapter 2. Dragon egg.
The first thing Eragon knew when he woke up was that he could no longer feel Saphira's mind. He felt a jolt of grief as what had happened last he remembered began to come back to him. The next thing was that he was on his knees with his arms chained up above his head by his wrists with iron chains. By the feel of it, Eragon suspected that his wrists were taking all his weight. He didn't have a tunic on and his bare chest showed. He couldn't find the energy to move. He tried anyway, despite his exhaustion
Eragon struggled with his mind, willing himself to be able to find energy to at least find out where he was. He eventually won the mental battle with himself and finally opened his eyes to find himself in a stone cell. There was a stone basin in one corner, a cot in the other while the only window was one on the door to his cell that had bars on it. Galbatorix sat in front of him on a wooden stool. Eragon raised his head and looked Galbatorix in the eye. He was s
nejisasu 3Nejisasu continued #3: chasing Uhiha Itachi
Sasuke just stared at the screen of the camera, not believing what he saw. He knew now that their secret would be known by the whole village with Itachi flashing the pictures around everywhere. He knew that people would go against them and that few wouldn't care.
Sasuke looked to Neji with determination. "We need to find Itachi and fast!" Neji nodded and together, they stood up and ran out of the house. They split up at the edge of the front garden, planning on combing through the village the best they could.
Sasuke walked through one street of the village. He passed by the usual people of the village, some children mucking around too. He headed towards the closest place that Itachi could get a film developed.
He walked inside the shop, looked around briefly before going to the counter where a rather hideous woman stood, wearing too much make-up and obviouly trying her best to look younger.
"Excuse me?" Sasuke asked. The woman turned to him.
Nejisasu 2 - catching Itachinejisasu continued:
Sasuke pushed Itachi's bedroom door open, searching inside greedily. itachi looked at Sasuke with a sheepish grin before leaping out the window, the film from his camera in his poket.
"ITACHI!!!!" Sasuke yelled after him, running and jumping out the window too. Sasuke took chase as Itachi started to run out of the village. "Itachi, wait!" Sasuke yelled stupidly as Itachi ran around the vilage.
Sasuke knew that Itachi was just trying to exhaust Sasuke before he went to develope the film and flash the pictures of him and Neji around. Sasuke wouldn't let that happen and he continued after them.
"Let's use the power of youth!!" Sasuke heard Gai sensei yell from ahead. He stopped in his tracks as he reached the clearing where Itachi had stopped, Neji standing with Lee, Gai sensei and Tenten in front of him.
Itachi started running to the side, and ran on through the trees. "Come on!" Sasuke yelled to Neji and together, they started to run after Itachi again.
"Hey! Where a
Nejisasu - Itachi's descoverySasuke blushed as Neji walked through the door to his room. He couldn't help it when he was only wearing his boxers and Neji was wearing pants. Neji smiled sweetly to him before sitting next to him on the bed.
"How have you been, Sasuke? I'm sorry I couldn't come earlier, I had a bit of trouble getting out of the house."
"That's alright. It's only one AM. I've been fine." Sasuke replied. He looked over Neji, studying his bare chest and his perfected face with his beautiful white eyes. He felt himself going even redder as Neji noticed that he was checking him out. Sasuke looked away quickly, hiding his embarassed face and looking out the window into the dark silent night.
Neji placed his hand on Sasuke's cheek and turned his face towards him. Neji leaned in and kissed him, holding him tightly against his chest. Sasuke returned the kiss, holding him just as tightly. Neji was first to pull away. But they remained in eachother's arms for a long time.
Sasuke shifted and raised his head as h
