PostSubject: Chapter 1 - Chains   Mon Jan 21, 2013 11:43 pm

A large crowd gathered around a scaffold, in which dozens of individuals stood atop, their arms and legs in heavy chains. Among them, many shorter-statured people of blue and violet skin, and hair ranging from green to moon white, stood, their starlight eyes glancing sadly to the ground. They were a beautiful people, accompanied by many less-glamorous humans, among many other races of people. Women and children, men and boys were kept in chains, as a man in elegant clothing stood in front of them, negotiating what seemed to be prices.
"And...the Forest Elf with the black hair...SOLD...to Lord Anduin Darrowmere!" A girl of an almost gray skin was pulled down from the scaffold, and so carelessly pushed towards the crowd.

Down the line of the chained slaves was a small group of different looking elves. They stood out amongst the brightly colored Forest Elves, their skin tanned with an almost golden hue. From the crowd, it appeared that there were only two High Elves, a man and a woman, but squeezed between them was a small girl of barely six years of age. The girl shivered and shook, her arms wrapped tightly around her mother’s legs.
The elven man with ebon hair placed a hand gently on his daughter’s head. “Shh… Naminae. It is fine. They always sell us in a set. Do not cry. The slavers may get upset.”
Naminae looked up at her father, continuing to grip tightly onto her mother’s tattered dress. Her eyes were red and puffy with tears. “Okay, papa.”

"Who's that family o' high elves, there?" sounded a voice from the audience. "They look like they'd make real good workers! And tha' woman and tha' girl...mmmm, good in the house, huh?" There came a sickening laughter from the crowd.
"This here is Summersong! In shame, they were cast away from Arndir, and put in chains! Some of the few that our glorious legions did not take beforehand."
"I'll give twenty gold for tha' lot o' 'em!"
"Surely the man jests! I'll give twenty five for the family, though they appear to be easily worth ten!"
The crowd began to name prices, bickering amongst itself as to the family's worth.

Naminae’s mother closed her eyes tightly, biting her lower lip in a nervous manner. Chains clinked together as her husband reached out as far as he could to touch her hand in an attempt to comfort her.
In his eyes you could see simmering anger and hatred at what the people in the crowds were saying about his wife and daughter. Oh if it were not for the mark of disgrace, he would kill them all and run away. Of course… that was what got them here in the first place. Running away.
Naminae began to whimper at the loud voices from down below. It scared her so. This was her first time being sold, and she just wanted to be with her family. Why couldn’t they stay with the master they had so they could be together?

"One thousand for the girl," came a sudden voice, which seemed to carry through all else. The crowd instantly grew silent at the mere sound of him.
There sat a man in chainmail armor, with the black sigil of a scorpion upon his colors. He was accompanied by what seemed to be a small army, his own guards bearing the same sigil, though in a less glorified manner. "One thousand gold pieces for the girl, and just the girl."

The high elves faces contorted into horror. Naminae’s mother began to weep along with her daughter. Her father stood as rigid as a board, his hands clenched into fists. The little elf looked between her mother and father’s face. Seeing the loss of hope in their eyes, she began to wail loudly, falling down to her knees and clutching her mother tighter.

The slaver standing atop the scaffold nodded at two armored men, who ascended the steps and went to take hold of little Naminae, dragging her off towards the nobleman.

The high elf woman went berserk and tried to fight away the men who tried to grab the girl.
“No! Please take don’t just take her! Take us all! Or… just take m-me! Don’t take her away from her family.”

"Bring me the girl, and only the girl. Sell the woman and the man separately, to prevent any rebellion." The two guards continued to drag little Naminae down towards the nobleman. "This one shall serve well." He spared her a look, a hint of concern evident behind two ruthless and calculating eyes. "Power divided...is power limited."

Naminae screamed bloody murder, reaching out for her parents. “Mama! Papa!”
The girl tried to squirm out of the soldier’s grasp, wriggling around as much as she could. She could see her parents in tears, horrified at the fact that they were all going to be separated. The thought of never seeing he parents again caused Namine to cry harder. So hard that the girl actually vomited on one the guards holding her.

"You little...filthy...elven bitch!" The vomit-covered guard lifted his metal-clad hand, and brought it with force across the girl's face.

The metal dug into Naminae’s cheek, bringing bright red marks to rise upon her skin. A few of the mark actually bleed a little. When she was struck, Naminae went quiet out of habit. Her old master had usually smacked her with she was crying and she always stopped when she was hit. The girl’s eyes gazed down at the man who was now her new master, this monster who had taken her away from her parents.

"We will ride to the very edge of Westamere, to the manor of my father, and his fathers before him." The nobleman looked down at the little elf. "What is your name, girl?"

Naminae held a hand over her cheek. It was burning hot like fire. It was one of the worst feelings in the world for the little girl, to feel the sting of a strike. The girl opened her mouth slightly in an attempt to speak. At first only deep sobs escaped through her lips, but finally she was able to choke out. “N-Naminae…”

"Naminae, and they said that your surname is Summersong?" asked the lord in a very cold inquiry.
