A thunderous scream tore through the silence that engulfed the place as a woman was sent flying across the empty room. The thick, wooden table spilt into two at the force of her slender body slamming into it. She should have, at the least, broken a few bones, but she staggered to her feet. Blood was everywhere. The woman had blazing blue eyes, so dark they could've been mistaken for black, but the way the light hit them made them so light that the magic she possessed was almost visible in the change. Her bright, honey coloured skin complemented her thick black hair that was waving gently past her face, as a soothing breeze passed through the room. A deep voice was laughing and a man swaggered into the room with an evil grin plastered over his face.
"Looks like it's time to kill you, then your daughter. Want me to tell you what I'm going to do to her?"
"You bastard I will kill you before I let you hurt her!"
"Looks like I will kill you right now, then what will you do? I'm gonna break each of her bones individually, one bone at a time. Maybe I should keep you alive for now so you can hear her screams." A sickening laugh came from him, she flinched at the sound.
"Maeve, just give up. Let me have your power and put your own suffering to an end."
"Why? Don't tell me the big bad Reuben is getting tired of the chase."
"Play time is over."
Reuben plunged his hand into her chest and, happily, with a smile on his face, ripped her heart out. Her body slumped onto the floor, into as bloody mess.
Suddenly a purple and white light formed a circle just above her chest where her heart used to be, and Reuben stepped back in confusion. Never had this happened to him before. By the time he could re-focus that strange light had passed through the room, and out of the window. Where to nobody knew. Once he'd gotten to the window it had disappeared, anger consumed him. He wanted her power more than anything.
