The Collector collects Luar
Permalink

A girl appears on the grass.

She's struggling, wrapped in a silver net she can't escape. The net seems to burn her skin everywhere it touches. 

She makes a soft, pained sound.

Some realities touch often. Some never do.

This particular intersection is unusual.

Someone notices and decides to watch.

Another girl, sitting by the shore of the lake, turns around at the sudden noise. She frowns at the sight. It... doesn't really look like Serik's style. Well - maybe. The girl certainly fits the profile. But silver? Why silver? And if it's not Serik, then it's someone or something else, and maybe she has a chance to improve the situation for once.

She gets up and goes over to untangle the net.

When the girl realizes what Luar is doing, she stops struggling. 

The net is tricky to untangle. At several points it is held shut by silver clasps that need to be pried open. But, if Luar is willing to be patient, she'll be able to free the girl in a few minutes.

Patient might not be exactly the word, but she keeps at it until it's done.

When the girl's been freed she sits up and hugs her knees and opens her mouth to speak-

They won't understand each other of course. 

But that's easy enough to fix.

"What happened to you?"

Permalink

"I don't like killing people and my master needed a test subject. He thought I'd be the safest one to send I guess, but not safe enough not to wrap in silver."

She shivers.

"...that's... not..."

She trails off, then shakes her head slightly, refocusing. "A test subject for what?"

Permalink

"Reverse summoning. Farrar, she's one of my master's friends, thinks there are other dimensions. They were trying to send me to one."

Permalink

"Well. I think they succeeded. And now you should go back there immediately. It's not safe for you here."

Permalink

"I can't, not until he summons me. But I'm fast? I can fly if I need to, though my master won't be happy if he calls me back and I'm a bird. Are you okay?"

Permalink

 

"—be a bird, and go be somewhere that isn't this mountain or anywhere near it. And—and we'll just have to hope he's not watching." She hugs her knees and shivers.

Permalink

"My master'd be really mad, maybe enough to kill me. Who's watching?"

Permalink

"The lord of this mountain. We generally wish he would kill us."

Permalink

"He likes to torture people, particularly pretty girls."

Permalink

She flinches.

"I'm sorry. I... I could probably kill you? If you wanted."

Permalink

"You can't."

Permalink

She changes into a small blue bird.

"I can try anyway? My magic can destroy a lot of things."

Permalink

She shakes her head. "He'd probably notice."

Permalink

"I can't just leave you. Will it be worse for you if I try?"

Permalink

"You should just leave me. Then he might not get you."
