Silently she moved towards him, her body slow. Contrary to her previous actions, she was not doing it on purpose to piss him off. Every inch of her ached, sore muscles and new cuts pulling against her. When she finally reached him and sat down, she was shaking, but kept her expression passive. While he was not looking at her, Lascrea observed the way his aura moved as he read. It was different than before, calmer, though it didn't mean too much. A calm aura could mean several different things.

Until she knew what exactly he wanted from her, Lascrea let her gaze wander around the study. Her eyes flashed almost sadly, more memories surfacing. General taught her how to read, and write in that room. He took his time with her, rarely got frustrated, even if she yelled and threw the books. A frown tugged at her lips before she realized, but she quickly shook it off. Once again looking at her new master, she waited for him to ask questions, then ridicule and beat her for the sheer ridiculousness of her ability. No one believed her. No one ever believed.

After Lascrea sat, the door opened once more. Skella appeared there, the light of the corridor shining behind her as she entered. The round woman wasted no time in crossing the room, stopping a few feet from Tayga, awaiting his approval. "Ahh, Skella. Thank you for coming. What did you find?"

The keeper's eyes moved to Lascrea, resting on her but not piercingly so. "She's not been fed properly in a long time, Master. She needs to eat. She's been abused for a long time. I think she will make a fine addition to your home, Sir."

"Very good," Tayga replied. "You may go."

Tayga watched as Skella left the room, then turned his gaze toward his newest addition. "Not one of my slaves has the authority to dispense punishment unless I say so. But they seem very keen on making your life a nightmare. Any idea why that would be"

Lascrea watched as Skella left, then turned her attention back to Tayga. Honestly she thought his question was stupid. Why would they do that? They didn't like her, the answer was obvious. She didnt say that, however. "They lie. I can see their lies, and they don't like that. They think I am a freak, Master." Saying the words out loud, she could understand why they would think she was ridiculous, but it was the truth. Lascrea didn't expect Tayga to believe her, who would?

After she spoke, she waited for him to get angry at her for lying, she expected a beating, she was prepared for it in fact. Why would he believe her? No one ever did, it wasn't a surprise. "I can prove it, but I don't suggest it. The more you lie, the more it taunts the aura." She gestured to the air around him around if it were obvious that there was something around him.

"I don't need you to demonstrate," Tayga replied, his eyes fixated to Lascrea. "I knew you were unique from the moment I saw you, I just wasn't aware of the scope of your power. It's why I spent so much to acquire you." Turning to the side, Tayga took a glass urn and poured a dark brown substance into his glass. "A lie is a tool. Sometimes you need it, and sometimes you don't. I lie to people I do not respect."

"Brandy, I believe you call it. Not as strong as what we have at home, but it has a decent flavor. Care for some?" It would have been highly irregular to offer a slave something so valuable, but then, Lascrea was not just a normal slave. She was special. She had a talent that would prove extremely useful. A talent such as that was not to be wasted, and if she could pass the ability down to her progeny...

"Tell me, Lascrea. Did you have a mate?"

"No thank you, sir." She declined the alcohol, as it had a negative effect on her ability, watching him closely. Brow furrowed she searched for lies or deception and found none. His belief of her startled her, no one had believed her before, especially not without a demonstration of power. Lascrea wasn't sure how to react.

For a moment she just watched Tayga, the question he asked lost on her. It took a moment, but when it registered what he was asking her, her cheeks flamed bright red. "N-no.. Sir. I've never had a.. a mate." Why would he ask such a personal question? What did that have to do with her ability? Truth was she hadn't been with anyone, but it wasn't really a surprise. The whole city knew that she was a freak, no one would come near her unless they were trying to beat her up, or something equally ridiculous. A mate of any kind was out of the question.

"Hmm... shame. Oh well, it doesn't matter much. There are other ways to divine knowledge." A long sip from the sharp beverage warmed Tayga's throat. When one could generate cold and ice at will, the ability to feel warmth was almost otherworldly, though it wasn't a completely foreign sensation. He had felt heat in many different ways, but never naturally. The back of his neck felt a rush of heat, though he wasn't quite sure why.

Dwelling on that question would have to wait, however, for he had another purpose for their meeting. "We will explore the depths of your ability later. But for now, we need to speak about you hiding from me earlier." Tayga shifted in his seat, setting down the drained glass. "I'm a patient Kin. I can be very kind, ask any of my staff. But I have no tolerance disrespect. I could beat you. I could kill you myself. But i'm feeling generous today, so your punishment will not be lethal.

"I have heard about your fears... what could possibly horrify you, who have had a rough life, based on the scars that decorate your skin. The slaves in the pen spoke of one in particular. I think you know what i'm talking about, yes?"

"Yes, Sir." Lascrea felt a pit in her stomach, dread rising within her. He was talking about the dark. It was foolish for her to think he wouldn't find out about it, but the question was, what was he going to do about it? She couldn't let him know that it was accurate, that the dark terrified her beyond belief. Her expression fell back to passive, blank. He wasn't going to ever find out, she couldn't afford for him to know and use it against her.

As long as he didn't ask a direct question, she could talk around the answer without lying. Lascrea hated to lie, it messed with her ability and if he found out the punishment would be far worse. Even if he suspected that there was a chance of something she was afraid of he was going to try it, she was sure.

"They were going to lock me away, and lie to you about my escape, Master."

"Sssssp!" Tayga's tongue hissed sharply, cutting off the girl before she could speak further. He had no need for excuses or explanations. The guards had already told him what he needed to know. "This isn't about the scuffle earlier. This is about you running off, in defiance to a direct order from your owner. This is not something I cannot and will not tolerate."

Tayga stood then, slowly walking around Lascrea's chair, his fingertips trailing along the top of the backrest. "You see, I run a very tight ship here. My workers respect my position. You may not know this, but my name is notorious among other Kin because I treat my slaves much better than the others on a regular basis." He leaned forward, speaking softly but with a tone that could cut iron. "They also know that I punish severely when punishment is needed."

Swiftly he took a handful of Lascrea's hair, clenching his fist tightly and pulling upward, effectively yanking her from the chair. Whether she started walking with him or not, Tayga pulled the girl across the library and through the door.

"If you hide from me, it means that you do not want to serve me. If you don't want to serve me, then I have no use for you. But I don't grant the luxury of death just because someone is unhappy with their lot in life." Several servants peeked around corners or looked through windows at the commotion, but not one of them stepped in, or even seemed to care at all about what was happening.

Lascrea yelped at the sudden show of force, grasping at his hand with her's, as she struggled to keep pace with him. Wasn't the beating she got from the others enough? Why drag her somewhere new to continue her torture? She didn't fight against him, or try to free herself from his grip as that would have been futile. All she did was try to keep him from ripping the hair out of her scalp.

From her position she couldn't see where they were going, she just hoped that it wasn't somewhere that was dark. If the guards had told him what they'd heard, then he knew her only weakness, the only thing that truly frightened her. Silently praying that he wasn't going to lock her in the dark, the only thing she could do was to follow him and obey.

With girl in tow, Tayga rounded the last corner of the manor, then stepped inside a large dumbwaiter, large enough to fit a few people at least. He pulled a lever toward him and slowly the car began to descend into the lower level, a large basement that only a select handful of the staff had ever seen, most of which for the same reason that Lascrea was about to see it with her own eyes.

When the car reached the bottom of the shaft, Tayga righted the girl onto her feet, using the top of her arm to guide her where he wanted to go. It might have been more embarrassing if he had used a leash of some kind, but he decided to wait before pulling that out of the closet.

"I really did not want to do this. Not to you. But you left me no choice. If I am too lenient, the others will start to rebel, and I simply cannot have that." Tayga pushed through a door that lead to a cellar underneath the main structure. It was quite large, with a dirt floor made mostly of red clay. Wooden walls and support beams held up the ceiling. Inside was a random assortment of items, many of them caked in dust and covered with cobwebs; it was obvious the room had not been disturbed much for some time. The only light within came in through the doorway, though it was very dim, and a narrow beam of sunlight through a knot-hole in one of the planks, catch just the few remaining minutes of daylight before the sun would disappear behind the mountain.

Tayga shoved the girl inside the room. "You will stay here until I believe you are ready to come out. Perhaps this will teach you to appreciate my generosity when it is offered." A quick mutter of his ancient language materialized a tangible cord made from shadow, which wound around her wrists and secured her to one of the support pillars. Once the task was complete, he slammed the door shut, taking the light with him and leaving Lascrea in almost total darkness.

Lascrea stood frozen, her eyes trying to adjust to the minimal light, but when she realized that there was no light to adjust to the panic began to set it. Her breathing became heavy, labored, but she remained still. "Turn on the light... please... Master please..." Her voice cracked as the fear began to creep through her veins.

Finally she shifted her body back towards the door, shaking so badly that she could barely stand. The darkness around her seemed to pulsate, shifting, inching closer to her. In her mind shapes began to manifest in the shadows, but every time she tried to catch a shape in her view, it vanished. Logically, Lascrea knew that nothing was in that room with her, but her terror was winning over logic.

"Don't leave me in here... master, please let me out.. Master..." She begged, the unparalleled horror she was feeling evident in every syllable. How long was he going to leave her in there? He wasn't just going to walk away and abandon her in the dark was he?

An unnatural darkness began to settle upon the manor, the kind that no one can see but they all feel within the depths of a their soul, like a cold wind on a winter night. The bitter touch of night seeped through the wooden planks separating Lascrea from the outside, leaving her alone in a sea of black. Shadows faded into the darkness, increasing the scope of their malcontent beyond any twilight hour, amplified by magic that oozed from the Kin, who sat on the other side of the interior wall, watching in secrecy though one of the hidden rooms left behind by General Muzakas.

For an hour Tayga let Lascrea whimper and cower and plead until he felt his point had been made. He had to break Lascrea before he could begin to mold her into something more than a hated human. His plans for the girl went far beyond the boundaries of a slave, or even a personal slave. He was going to make her his, body, mind, and soul. When he was done with Lascrea, there would not be one thing she would deny him. She would do whatever he instructed her to do, and to Tayga, that was more appealing than all the wealth in Ophelion.

Tayga stood and went back to the door, quietly opening it, letting the light from the hallway spill into the cellar like a bucket of water. "Time's up Lascrea. You may come out now."

The time she spent in the dark room felt like an eternity to Lascrea. The shadows seemed to press in on her; at one point she was convinced that someone was in the room with her, taunting her, but out to get her at the same time. She pleaded and begged and cried to be let out, to let light into the room. But nothing happened. She had resigned herself to the darkness, curling up with her face in her hands when the door finally opened.

Light spilled into the room, and the terrified girl shot out of the darkness and into the light faster than should have been able for a girl of her size. Pressing herself against the wall away from the darkened door, she crouched, flinching at the still moving shadows within the Dark Room. Her wide terrified eyes drifted up towards Tayga, cheeks wet with the tears she had shed. Lascrea didn't speak, she just sat, huddled against the wall, her heart pounding. He said she could come out, so she did. Now all she had to do was wait to see if he was going to throw her back in or let her leave that awful place.

Tayga almost tripped backwards over his own feet as a blur of a figure darted past him, though he managed to right himself before losing his balance completely. His eyes followed the path to Lascrea, whose trembling body and wet cheeks confirmed what he had watched and heard from his hidden spot outside of the Dark Room. Quietly he closed the door, then waved his hand over the lock, which clicked sharply.

Turning back to Lascrea, Tayga's face softened significantly. That particular kind of punishment was not his favorite, but he felt it was necessary to solidify the relationship between Master and Slave. If she knew what he could do to her, she would be less likely to act out. Crouching down in front of her, he placed his hand softly on her shoulders, fully expecting her to recoil away from him with fear, though it would not surprise him if she did not.

"Now you see," the Kin said, just as softly as his touch. "The horrors that await anyone under my care are mountains compared to the hills of inconvenience this life will place on your shoulders. I sincerely hope that we do not have to come to this room ever again. Now dry your eyes. Let's go upstairs and eat. I'm sure you must be starved by now."

It may have been difficult for anyone but Lascrea herself to make any sense of what was happening. Only a short time ago, Tayga was dragging her by her hair across the manor of the fallen General, the only man to show her any kindness whatsoever. Yet there he was, speaking words so soft they would rival the down of a little duckling, even offering her his hand to stand and be escorted to dinner as if he were courting her.

What might have been stranger still is that there was no indication that it was not anything but him displaying his true intentions. He was not false in the least. He meant every word he spoke, and was committed to every action he took.

For a moment the frightened girl just stared up at her Master, but it would have been rude and disrespectful of her to decline his offer to help her up. Fearing repercussions, Lascrea took his hand and allowed him to help her to her feet, reasoning that it was because of fear and not the fact that she was shaking so hard she could barely remain upright on her own.

She had searched his words as he spoke, to see deception, but she found none. He was sincere. Lascrea wasn't sure what confused her more, that he was being sincere or that the Kin in front of her was the same one that had thrown her in there in the first place. Like she always did, Lascrea remained silent, using her free hand to wipe the tears from her eyes and cheeks. Before completely out of sight of the Dark room, she cast a glance back at the door, a shudder ripping through her entire body.

Lascrea vowed to do whatever it took to stay as far away from that room as she possibly could.

Pretending not to notice the last glance back, Tayga escorted the young girl back to the elevator. It was a quiet ride back to the main floor, the only sound being the quiet whirring of the gears and cable as the car was pulled up the shaft. When the doors opened, Tayga walked Lascrea down the hall to the dining area, where he sat her down in a chair next to his own. Like magic, the staff began to appear with flatware, glasses, and plates.

"Master Tayga, welcome sir. What will you have today?"

Tayga smiled slightly. "I'd like some fresh bread and some fruit." Turning briefly to Lascrea, it was obvious that she wasn't going to speak up for herself, given the entire day's interactions. "A little bit of everything for her, hmm?" The lady nodded happily and trotted back into the kitchen.

"Mrs. Brantley. She's a jolly thing, and she'll treat you nicely if you are nice to her. I think you'll enjoy her friendship."

Unsure of what to do, or what to say if she were allowed, the young girl stared at her Master for a brief moment before averting her eyes. If he caught her trying to meet his eyes, as she had earlier that say when they had met, he might slap her again, and she wasn't mentally stable enough to handle that. If Lascrea had been sitting with the General she would joke with him, playful banter exchanged between the two of thwm. But the person sitting beside her was not the General, he was not her friend, and he did not care about her like the General had.

Her gaze moved around the room, noticing that she was the only one seated with him though she was a slave. In her mind she hoped that word did not get to those in the pen outside of his different treatment of her. They would not be happy, and would find any excuse to corner her and take out their jealousy on her. Though normally non-verbal, the silence in the room between them felt off, like she should speak to him, respond, and acknowledge that he was talking to her. On the other hand, he had not given her permission to speak, and she had been a slave to others long enough to know that punishment awaited those who spoke before getting permission to do so.

Lascrea's silence made Tayga almost feel uncomfortable, though he was not exactly sure why. Perhaps it was how he had treated her up to that point, or the way she actively avoided speaking to him. She was no ordinary slave, not a tool to wield and discard as soon as she had worn out her usefulness. It was not the magic that she possessed. There was something else about her that perplexed and excited the Kin.

It was then determined that Tayga needed to try to get her to understand. He just hoped that he had not already broken her completely. He waited until the servant woman returned, coming out more than once with arms full of small plates, each one with a different finger food on it.

"Thank you Mrs. Brantley. See that we are not disturbed until i call for you again."

"Yes sir. Enjoy," she said with a small smile, and she left the room, closing the door behind her.

"Lascrea, i want you to understand something. There are two ways for a slave to live their life: in fear, or with pride. Your time indentured to me does not have to be torture. That is my offer to all my slaves."

"However, what they did to you... the other slaves... i will not tolerate. So here is your first task. I am going to speak personally with each and every one of them to divine the truth. You will watch from hiding, then report to me wgo lied and who told the truth. The guilty wll be punished. Severely. Does that sound fair?"

"Yes, Sir." Lascrea spoke softly, the same airy tone she used when she first spoke to him. Her fear was fading, drifting far away to the back of her mind. She began to relax, watching him from the corner of her eyes, his words showing no trace of a lie. It was odd to her, for him to not lie to try to test her ability, and for him to even believe her. "They will do it again, Master. You can punish them, but they will never like me, and if you treat me differently they will continue to look down on me. When your back is turned they will try again."

Even though she wasn't technically given permission to speak, he didn't tell her to remain silent either. She figured as long as she spoke with respect in her voice and his title somewhere in the conversation it would be alright. She also wanted to notify him of how the others would react to their situation. Those people had never liked her, treated her like she was less that she shit under their boots. They always would. It wasn't going to change just because they were now dragged down to her level as a slave. They believed they were more than her, better than her, worth more.

Nothing was new to her anymore. Nothing surprised her. It was all routine, expected. Lascrea knew the general rules of being a slave, they only varied slightly between Masters. A slave she had been, a slave she would always be. It had been a long time since she expected anything more than that out of her life.

"Sometimes it is better to be feared than liked, Lascrea," Tayga admitted, as somber tone laced in his words. It was a bitter lesson, one he himself was forced to learn early in his life. The cold, arrogant Kin that sat next to the girl was not always so. Memories caused his eyes and aura to momentarily glaze over but he quickly pulled himself out of the dazed state. "You will learn this soon enough. I will make sure that it never happens again. Now please, eat."

For a few minutes, Tayga did not speak, but planned ever single move that would show just how severe his punishments could be. Everyone involved would receive the harshest punishments possible, retributions that would bring terrible suffering to those who inflicted pain on the future mother of his children and fear to those who were lucky enough to avoid his horrible gaze. But first...

"Lascrea, I have made a decision. It is clear that having you sleep in the slave quarters will not do. They will just hurt you again. Rather that subject you to that danger, you will sleep in my bedroom with me. There I can keep you safe. I will arrange to have your clothing and necessities moved immediately." The way Tayga spoke, it was as if it were just another conversation just like any others. The sun shown on cloudless days. Humans needed to breath oxygen to survive. Lascrea was going to sleep in his bed.

Lascrea was hesitant to eat at first, not ever having enough free will to enjoy food as she pleased, but after a few moments of just staring at the delicious assortment of food in front of her, she began to eat. As she did so, she watched Tayga. He seemed to be thinking about something, and while she was looking towards him, it was directly at him. She observed the way his aura moved around him, colors changing depending on the thoughts moving in his head. She couldn't read his thoughts by any means, but she knew different colors meant different things.

Kin auras were different from human auras in many ways, but they were also similar. The colors were close, but the shape and way it moved was different, and it interested her. Lascrea was so caught up in the way his aura moved that she almost missed what he said. Almost.

As soon as she caught what he said, she nearly choked. Lascrea coughed and sputtered, her mismatched eyes wide and locked on Tayga. She was what?! No. There was no way he was serious. But he was. It was evident in the way he said it, nonchalantly, as if it was just something normal, obvious. "I'm... I'm sorry?"

"You're apologizing?" Tayga blinked, the question more rhetorical than literal. The way she stuttered and sputtered, it was clear to him that Lascrea had never received such a command. Or perhaps she simply didn't understand his reason or motivation for issuing such an order. Another bite preceded a long drink, after which he decided to expand upon the decree. "Where better to keep you safe than in my own bed? No one will dare come after you there. During the day, you will be watched over carefully. You'll be held higher than the rest, elevated to a status that places you many times their value. They will fear you, and they will fear me."

"It is decided," Tayga finished with an excited smile. He was ready to bed her already, and had been since bringing her home. Her spirit, her appearance, and her strange talent made her exotic and seductive, even if she was not trying to be so. He wondered what it would be like, their first experience together. Would she recoil, or would she enjoy herself? The act of mating was something to be anticipated. She would birth many children for him, and he, in turn, would protect her and provide her a life unlike any slave could ever imagine.

Staring in disbelief at her Master, Lascrea couldn't form a reply. Was he really going to move her to sleep in his bed... with him? Among slaves it wasn't uncommon for the master to bed them, and many had tried with her, but she always had managed to slip away and seek refuge with the General. But the General was dead, there was nowhere for her to escape to. That, and she'd only fought off the humans who owned her, never a Kin. Having already experienced first hand what he was capable of if she tried to escape, Lascrea was hesitant to even think of trying.

Another thought surfaced, making her even more wary of the idea. She'd never been with anyone. No kisses, no touching, nothing. No one had wanted that from her before, what if Tayga wanted it from her? She couldn't satisfy him even if she was one of the whores who threw themselves at any passing man. But could she refuse him? He was the master, she was the slave. Even if she wanted to refuse, there was nothing that could be done.

"But.. I-I..." Lascrea stumbled over her words, uncertainty tugging at her. Why her? She wasn't as pretty as some of the others girls, she didn't have the experience they had. Lascrea was, and always had been a slave. A strange slave with an uncanny ability to detect lies. Why would he want her?

"Shush. I will issue the command after the questioning. Now hurry and finished eating, I want to get this over with." Having picked over his meal to his satisfaction, Tayga leaned back slightly in his chair, slouching a bit as he took the crystal glass in his hand and drained the remainder of his beverage. But as he reclined, a darker thought crossed his mind, one that was not quite as agreeable as torturing and terminating slaves.

The one who sold Lascrea to him, the Kin slave trader, was partially to blame for Tayga's current predicament, for he failed to disclose to him just how unusual Lascrea really was. There was a standard to be upheld by the Kin community, one of forthright information that could lead to the harm of another Kin. But the louse failed to share that information with him, for one reason or another, and Tayga wanted to know why.

"Ms. Brantley," Tayga called, summoning the woman almost immediately, as if she had been waiting just on the other side of the swinging door, waiting for his command.

"Yes, Sir," she asked as she crossed to the table. "Finished already, Master?"

"Yes, but I have another task for you. Go to the pen and inform the guard that I want to see every slave, one at a time. Have them lined up to my study against the north wall immediately."

"Yes, Sir." Ms. Brantley trotted off merrily with Tayga's empty cup and plate in her delicate hands.

Tayga then turned to the girl again. "As for you, I want you to finish eating. Take the back way into the library; I know you know what I'm talking about. When we're ready, you will hide and I will question. Do you understand?"

"Yes, Sir." Lascrea responded. She wasn't sure if she had an appetite after what she'd just found out, but she didn't want the food laid out before her to go to waste, so she continued to pick at it until she could no longer stomach it. Standing once finished, she hesitated to leave. As a slave she wasn't used to just leaving dishes around, but he instructed her to go when she was finished.

Hesitating a moment longer, she turned and exited the dining room and headed to the secret path that would take her to the library. If anyone were following her, as she entered the main hallway, they would see her disappear into the wall without a trace. The lights in the secret corridor helped guide her towards the notch in the wall by the library.

It was an odd feeling, using her ability to help someone else. Or help her Master. No one believed her before, maybe being his slave wouldn't be as bad as she thought.
