Elle and Erraline

ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She stared at the ceiling, nibbling on her lip, she still felt the blood on her hands and rubbed the back of her hand with the palm of her other hand. "Hey...are you awake?" She whispered, not looking over. She barely fit into the small bed and the cotton blanket provided no warmth. The room gave off no other furniture except a small chest at the end of each bed. They were both hard metal with thin mattresses. They were deep underground and the lack of water made her skin itch.

Erraline woke up. She had only been asleep for around three hours, since the bed made her uncomfortable. On a comfortable bed, she probably would have had much more sleep. "I am now."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She blinked, "sorry," she muttered, "you can go back to sleep...it's okay." Lucky girl. Elle wasn't able to get a wink. "At least it wasn't my nightmares." She probably shouldn't have mentioned it but her dreams, that made her wake up screaming, had been getting worse the past few nights.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"It's alright. I can't get much sleep now anyway, since this bed isn't the most comfortable." She then sat up. "Nightmares? If you don't mind me asking, do you remember anything from those nightmares?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She finally looked over, "sometimes, sometimes not. I don't really try to. Usually just memories. They're no big deal. I'm use to them."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"If you say so." She leaned back against the headboard of the bed that she was in. "I have nightmares as well."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She looked at her, with wide eyes, "really?" She didn't expect that. "How bad?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Sometimes severe. The latest nightmare I had was a flashback to when I was shot, but one of the cult members succeeded in killing me. But that's nothing compared to the nightmares I get about..that day."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I was shot before," she mused before asking, "what happened...?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"To answer your questions from now and from before the ball, the reason why I wear that Lunar necklace all the time in the Academy isn't because I'm patriotic of being a Lunar. It's because it was the last gift I received from my parents, before they were killed." She finally opened up. "It's one of the only things that I have to remind me of them. I didn't really tell people about this, until I ended up making friends for once and getting a boyfriend."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Were you close with them?" She asked quietly. She wasn't going to say she was sorry for her loss. It wasn't appropriate.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"According to my brother, I was. I loved them." She looked at the blanket that was scarcely covering her. "Luckily for me, I don't remember everything about the day when they were killed. But unfortunately for my brother, he remembers all of it."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Were you...young?" She asked. "When they were killed."

She nodded, "if it's anything...I don't remember either of my parents as well. So I get it."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"I guess we have something in common then." Erraline sighed in sadness. "I try to be sociable and friendly, but I tend to have severe trust issues sometimes. Living in Japan made me that way." She couldn't stop opening up.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I've never had friends before you guys," she whispered, "I don't think I'm that sociable or friendly, though. I thought Japan was bustling with people, though."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Yeah, it is. I say that because of the guardian who looked after me and Derren. She was mainly traditional and wary of others. I looked up to her, so I ended up gaining some of her traits."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Oh, I see," she murmumured, "I suppose it helped with being a duchess and all. Derren....what's your last name?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Dange. It's French."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I think I met him, ages ago. He doesn't really look like you."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Really? That's new. When we came to Elementrium, people thought that we looked like twins."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Really?" She asked, "sorry for killing the streak."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"It's fine. You're entitled to your opinion, after all."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Do you want to hear my sob story?" She asked, "you don't have to. Just...I know every time I open up I get a bit...uncomfortable."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Yeah, I guess. I told you part of mine, so it's only fair."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She smiled, "seems we really do have stuff in common," she said. She took a moment of silence, gathering her thoughts. "My mother sold me off. For three bags of heroin. When I was three. We were living on the streets and...she, according to the guy who took me in, never really liked me. So it didn't really bother her to...just sell me off for the stuff she loves. I hear that she use to be a prostitute and thats how I was conceived. Don't even have a name for my father. One thing we don't have in common, I wasn't born out of love."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"That must have been rough." She replied, genuinely feeling sympathetic.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I didn't find out until I was thirteen," she replied with a shrug, "I was loved by Jordyn, though, the guy who brought me in. He treated himself like he was my father. I grew up surrounded by soft toys and books."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"That's good. Is there more?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Erraline, Jordyn was the one who sold her the heroin, do you really think my life would a happy one with a drug lord as a father?" She asked, slightly laughing, "I don't see him anymore you know? He's in jail. Attempted murder." And it was out. She'd never said the words out loud before. Not to anyone, not even Tom.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Then I take back what I said."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"It's fine," she said, "I still love him. Can I ask you somethin?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Sure."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Is being a duchess that good? Like, you might not have anything to compare it too but...I always thought it provided security, you know?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"It has its advantages. Like I've said previously, you get to attend coronations and balls and all that jazz. I'm also financially secure for the rest of my life, thanks to my position. When I leave the Academy, I could live anywhere on Earth with my fortune. But it has disadvantages, especially for those who don't have traditional views or are hated by higher ups in other kingdoms like myself. One of those disadvantages is security. Just like many of the powerful on Earth, we're at risk of being assassinated." She took a break, to sigh. "The massacre that my parents were a casualty of, that was rumoured to be an assassination plot on behalf of higher-ups in the Solar Kingdom. That's what conspiracy theorists love to believe."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Those theories thrive off the attitude of the society. It's the fear and the wariness of a war erupting that feeds that one," she said, theorising herself.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"War. That's always a possibility." She gulped. "Solars are supposed to be our enemies, according to the stupid rivalry. Yet, I'm in love with one." She then remarked.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She grinned, "it's why you probably did fall in love with them. The prohibited always look so tempting. Not even a king could fight it off."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"That's true. It's like the real life version of Romeo and Juliet. Only, I don't wish to die, and I'm pretty sure Alek doesn't wish to die either."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I don't think either Juliet or Romeo wanted to die either until the other died. I think it's a bad comparison. They were like 13."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Well, yeah. You've got a point. I only said that since Romeo and Juliet was the first love story that I could think of."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"What about..." she trailed off, thinking of iconic love duos. "Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Classical literature. Alek likes it. Lucky you, you just managed to guess my boyfriend's favourite type of literature." Erraline sniggered.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She giggled, "maybe I should have him then. You can take Julian," she joked.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Funny." She laughed slightly. She acknowledged that it was a joke, but she didn't appreciate it too much.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Sorry," she breathed out, "I get too ahead of myself sometimes. If you weren't a duchess...what would you do? When you got older."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline forgave her for the joke. "It's fine. And I guess I'd probably be living in Japan and working."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"As what?" She asked. She couldn't help it, people's plans for the future always fascinated her.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Maybe something to do with animation. Or maybe security. I haven't really thought it out that far yet. I made those plans for myself when I thought I was going to be alone, but now I have a significant other who I have to incorporate into plans - unless he doesn't stay with me in the future, which I don't want to happen."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Naturally," she replied, "so...being a duchess. That's not going to last?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Oh that will last until I die, or unless I do something that revokes my duchess status. But I'm not stupid, so I won't do that. While I will be loyal to the Lunar Kingdom, because my mother and father had been loyal and if I wasn't loyal, I'd be disrespecting their legacy, I don't see myself spending my entire life in Elementrium."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She grunted at this, "fair enough," she replied.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Can I ask you a question?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Go for it."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Do you want to be royalty?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
She closed her mouth. She was silent for a while. "What makes you think that?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Not intending to be rude, but you're very inquisitive when it comes to royalty. I remember the questions that you've asked me, so I was wondering whether you'd want to become royalty. If it reassures you, it'd be possible for you to become a Princess. That's if you married Julian."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I feel kind of wrong to do that, though, use him for the title. It's not like I'd really gain anything." She sighed. Rather marry him out of love than for money. "I can earn that money myself."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Nice to know you're not the gold digger type." Erraline commented, not meaning any malice. "I was somewhat alluding to you marrying him out of love, but I didn't express that enough."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"It's a...it's a bit early to be talking about marriage, don't you think?" She asked, laughing slightly at the absurdity of the situation. They might die down there and they were talking about marriage.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"It's just thoughts." Erraline snickered a little, again not intending any malice.


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"I don't like thinking about the future, it makes me get my hopes up, I'd rather see how it plays out without...without really making plans."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"So you're a live by the moment type of person?"


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Surprisingly enough, yeah," she replied. "Are you?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Unfortunately not, with what I've had to go through. But I'm gonna get there soon, since I've turned 18."
ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Everything starts when you turn eighteen, I think it's ridiculous."


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"Yeah. Some of us are not prepared for adulthood yet. Me especially."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"It comes whether we want it or not. I can't really notice it, I already feel like I'm there, you know?"


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"You must be mature then."
ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Hard not to be," she murmured.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
Erraline gave a nod, showing that she understood. "I'm afraid I don't know what else to talk about."


ElleWb2
Eleanor Francis
"Should go back to sleep, at least one of us will have energy," she breathed out.


Erraline 5
Erraline Dange
"True. In that case, goodnight. It was nice to talk to you." She told Elle, as she lay down again.
