The Shadow Queen's Vessel
"Let me go this instant!" Peach shouted at her captor, struggling in the chains that bound her to the wall. She had been captured by the Shadow Queen and taken to this dingy stone room, almost certainly for some nefarious purpose.
"I'm afraid I won't be doing that, Princess." The Shadow Queen said, chucking slightly. She walked up the center of the room, slowly approaching the captive Mushroom Kingdom royal.
"What do you even want with me anyway?!" Peach yelled, growing increasingly concerned as the other woman drew closer, her mind creating the worst possible scenarios. "If you hurt me even a little, you're gonna be in so much trouble!"
"Oh, don't be ridiculous. I wouldn't dream of hurting a hair on your pretty little head." The Shadow Queen now stood directly in front of Peach, looking down on her. "You'll have to be in perfect condition if you're going to be my host." Peach's eyes went wide, not knowing completely what the purple woman meant, but still uneasy nonetheless.
