I woke to darkness, opening my eyes and seeing nothing but the endless black abyss that enveloped me. I shivered as the cold air blew past my naked and cut up legs. Still in chains, my arms fought to rid themselves of the decrepit metal that jailed me to this rotting wall. Screams echoed through the door as it opened slightly and let a small patch of candle light into my dark prison. I saw a shadow enter, but nothing more. My malnourishment and deteriorated physical state made it nigh impossible for me to see, especially in such poor light. But when the shadow spoke, I knew who had entered my chamber .
"Ji'unemm," He whispered softly.
." I answered, coughing and continuing to pull on my chains. "Master, please, I did as you asked, and now that I am here in the heart of hell, release me from this torment. Make me slave to you no longer
"You know I can't do that, little one," Said my leader, brushing his fingers across my blood stained cheek. I began to cry, sobbing and fighting my shackles.
"Namsar, don't leave me here! Please! I beg of you! I will never defy you! Don't leave me to the mercy of Rathrulas! I beg you! I BEG YOU!" Hyvar stood up and began to walk out, despite my plea.
"Do not fight it, my child
" He whispered softly.
"NO!" I yelled again.
"You are angelic; therefore this darkness will never fully consume you. You will remain, until your task is done." He began to close the door behind him, and it clanged shut with a deep thunder that rang through the walls. I screamed for my master. I screamed for him for what felt like hours before my voice finally gave out on me and the cold began to set in. I curled up against my wall, trying to conserve what little body heat I had left. The shivers came to me again, afflicting my entire body. I suffered in solitude for hours on end, imprisoned in the dark fortress of my master's rival, Rathrulas. I was tasked with infiltration. Know thy enemy, my overseers had said to me. Know him well. Learn his habits. Learn his pleasures. Learn his weakness and exploit it. Needless to say, I failed.
It has been 12 years since I first joined Rathrulas' ranks and earned the title of Valkyrie. I have spent 3 of which in this ghastly place. My sole company has been Rathrulas himself, who only visits me to satiate his need for physical and emotional intimacy. I am bound to solitary confinement until my lord decides how best to repurpose me. I lost any and all freedom I may have had when I took on this hideous task. What a terrible mistake I made
