It had been two days since her last look into the crystal ball, and Alex was almost afraid to look into it. Almost. But it wasn't enough to keep her away from it forever. She knew that unwanted things were seen, and as a slave almost everything was unwanted. But perhaps gazing again would give her more information about the Death Eater that her brother was planning on selling her to soon.
After the botched escape attempt two mornings ago, thoughts of leaving had lingered, but they hadn't been as strong as figuring out more about the Death Eater than James was planning on giving her to. He hadn't even bothered to come and tell her about it yet. So she hoped she had time, maybe enough to figure a way to escape before she was put to work for some narcissistic woman that was one of her brother's friends.
The most recent attempt at seeing anything in her crystal ball had done nothing. The orb was on a small matress where she slept, and she was seated next to it, her eyes locked with the swirling contents. She wasn't getting much of anything from the contents. It felt like school again. And then a small flash. Alexandra tried to stop her thoughts for a moment, but then she heard movement outside of the door to the small room where a few slaves slept.
The teen moved, throwing a torn up blanket over the still-glowing orb and getting to her feet before the door opened. Who was it? It couldn't be James, not this early. She needed more time... But who would be barging into the slave quarters at 10:30 at night?
