"I knew you would come here eventually." She said as she stepped into view, unveiling herself. She had been standing merely two feet before the other woman but she had not seen her. Good to know that new trick had worked. "I had wondered what took you so long." A gesture was given and four of her people stepped forward, grasping her arms and dragging her off. A fifth, a woman about the same height as Cera bowed low. Malis nodded and bade her to rise. From her pocket, Malis withdrew a mask, the same type as the one she had used for Kae. This was held. "You know what comes now." The woman clenched her jaw and nodded. At a gesture from Malis, a dozen people stepped forward and proceeded to beat the woman into submission. Knives and sabers were used, just to make it look right. Malis held her hand up and everyone stepped back. Crouching, she attached the mask, ensuring it would not be removed except by she herself, not even the imposter could.
Satisfied, she rose. The others were dismissed and they bowed to the Emperor's apprentice and left the room. Now for the best part. Closing her eyes, she composed herself, summoned that rage that always sat just below the surface. When she opened her eyes they were utterly black. Fingers were threaded into Cera's hair and she summoned her own portal. Stepping through, she began the deception.
