A familiar hand had clamped down on top of his head as Neive forced him to the ground. Mid-word, he hadnt had the change to close his mouth and was rather effectively gagged by dust for the next few minutes.

my tears inside wont dry
it's too dark to see the day
years have gone by my feelings have not changed
Your unwelcome touch
but i want to be free
tell me why you did it when i was so neive.
Why didnt you listen
when will i make it
how many days do i have to cry
when will i feel you are not worth it
I hope you will always feel my pain
soon i will find a way
but you willnot do it again
because actions are always followed
by a price you may pay
Listen to my words cause the pain you gave me
will never go away
Your unwanted touch burned me
but i want to be free
tell me why you did it
when i was so neive!

The secret technique to pacify my new employer had escaped me until that point, yet it proved remarkably simple. Zachary held up a pendant of sorts, obviously old and sporting engravings I absolutely itched to get a closer look at. The golden metal reflected the greed in Neives. She looked as if she would have snatched it had pride not kept her from it.
Ill trade you one piece of hocus-pocus for anoth
