Chapter 1: The Woman With The Bright Green Eyes
I opened my eyes and realized I wasn't in the same place I closed them in. It was dark, quiet and erie, but at the same time I felt someone's presence near by.
I had to find out where I was.
I lifted my arms and then tried to stand, but a sharp pain shot through my skull almost immediately and it forced me back down. Where was I? It was starting to become frightening. I had to keep myself from going insane... the darkness would eventually confuse me... I could go into a state of shock. I needed a plan.
Hoping that the being I sensed would respond to me, I screamed out, "WHOEVER YOU ARE PLEASE TELL ME WHY WE'RE HERE? WHERE ARE WE?"
I waited about 5 minutes. No answer. I hung my head and laid flat on the cold floor that was made of a soft cushion, but felt like concrete at the time.
"Relax. You're gonna be here for a minute." The being finally replied. I jumped up and sat on my knees.
"Who are you? Where are we?" I asked frantically.
"I don't even know myself, all I know is why we're here... and from the looks of it you lost your memory..." It said softly.
"Lost my memory?"
"Yeah... definitely. Oh and as for who I am, my name is Chris..."
"So uhh... Chris? Why exactly are we here?"
"Well for one thing, we were in the middle of a mission."
"Mission? Oh right we're agents..."
"Yay you're beginning to remember." He said sarcastically. I made a face. Not like he could see, but if he was a smart as I thought, he would know.
He chuckled. "I'm just messing around. Anyway, we were sneaking around in a very dangerous place..."
"The Serette Estate?" I cut him off.
"Exactly. The estate is claimed to be haunted, but that's why we were there. To find out what was really going on there."
"Oh oh I remember now! We split up to cover more area. I got a call from you on my radio but instead of it being you, it was someone else... while I tried to learn who it was someone snuck up behind me and drugged me with some kind of drug... I don't know what it was but the minute that needle hit my neck I was out."
He clapped sarcastically. "Congratulations."
"You know what?" I started. He laughed again.
"So do you remember anything else?"
"Well... uhh... I know my name! It's uhh... uhh.." I looked up as if the answer was up there somewhere.
"Oh gosh... geeze your name is Zuri," He spit at me. Man, if only I could see where he was I would beat him to a pulp.
"Ok so anyway my smart ass, after they drugged me I woke up here and that's all I remember. How did you get here?" My memory was now finally restored, and I didn't like it.
"Same way you did, except when they used my radio to contact you, I was already out. I didn't lose my memory though, as you can see," He sassed.
"Oh shut up!" I laughed. "Don't try to make me feel stupid!"
"You don't need me for that, Zuri," He snickered.
We continued to laugh and spit insults back and forth at each other until the lights suddenly turned on and a tall, shapely woman with short hair and bright green eyes stood before us. She looked like a half human half cat.
"Welcome you two. Thank you for visiting my lovely estate this evening." She cooed at us with a mysterious look in her eye. I could tell this was going to be interesting.
She stood in black spiked heel boots with dark green flames on the outer sides, her pants were skin tight, and they started at her waist. Her shirt covered only her bust to the top of the pants. It had an intricate design of vines, roses and thorns woven into the corset design. Strangely enough, the sleeves she wore were connected to the shirt from almost no where, and like the boots, they also had flames on the outsides. She had long dark green nails with diamonds on each tip, her lipstick was of a dark mauve color and her eye make up made her cat-like eyes stand out like moonlight. She was gorgeous, but she looked truly suspicious.
"Since you all are my guests this evening, I'd like to treat you with the utmost hospitality," She purred with a smirk. "I bet you're wondering why you aren't able to stand. All in good time. Now please, follow me..." She trailed off as she wisked around and through the now open door of our chamber. It was a magnificent place. Before she got too far ahead of us, she turned around and looked both of us dead in the eye and continued on. When we began to stand, the sharp pain had disappeared. We looked at each other briefly to check each others' current physical state and then started after the woman.
"Who are you anyway?" Chris questioned cautiously. She stopped almost on a dime and turned slowly.
"Me? Why, I'm Kyani Serette. The heir of this estate." She replied with a sly chuckle.
