Note: This takes place not long before ‘What really happened that day..’
It had been awhile since Elysia had seen her parents. Too long a while, but living with Cynthia seemed like fun. She had it all, a large castle-like mansion in a peaceful forest, the best beds and rooms for ages. So you would expect Elysia would be pleased with Cynthia’s wealth… Well, not quite, she was rather jealous instead.
“Elysia, where do you think you’re going at this time?!” Cynthia demanded, blocking the only exit Elysia knew. “N-Nowhere that concerns you…” Elysia looked at Cynthia nervously, sitting on the steps just past the fountain. That’s right, an indoor fountain. Cynthia smirked, she always used Elysia’s nervousness to her advantage to try and sweet talk Elysia into telling her the truth. “Darling, why not tell me?” She asked, sitting next to the younger Angel. Elysia shivered, she had only caught onto her sister’s tactics three days ago. “Nice try Cynthia, it’s not going to work!” She ran to the door, but to no avail as Cynthia froze Elysia from the waist down. “Hey, no fair!” “Life isn’t fair!” Cynthia chuckled as she thawed the girl out and grabbed her, pulling her into a hug, which Elysia had no choice but to submit to. Just then, Scarlett opened the door and chuckled. “I see you two seem to be strengthening your bond?” Elysia laughed. “No, just a forced hug!” Elysia giggled as she got pinned to the ground by the two women. “I’ll never win, will I?” “Nope!” Cynthia laughed as she looked at Scarlett, who just grinned back.
Kassandra was in her room, studying her book of the Old Religion. “This would come in use to Elysia..” She walked out of the room, only to see Elysia being ganged up on by Cynthia and Scarlett. “Hey now.. Be fair!” Elysia grinned as she backed off, bumping into Kassandra. “There’s no such thing as being fair when it comes to the Lockharts!” Kassandra smirked and grabbed the poor girl. “Ugh, typical, I’m gonna get locked in a room with Kassie… Again.” Cynthia chuckled, trailed a finger down the girl’s neck and collarbone, one of Elysia’s pet hates, and smirked.
Only a short story.
