Ember smiled as Fabienne's eyes opened with a snap.
"What am I doing here?" Fabi asked. "Where am I?"
"We think you'd be a valuable edition to our team."
"Team?" Fabi asked, eyes widened. "What team?"
Ember smiled and invested her energy into healing her. "We can't allow Mevolent to rise. You managed to escape, and I've done my homework on your abilities, so our leader decided to let you join our little... rebellion, if you will."
Fabi sat up straight, blocking the healing process, and Ember sighed. "Tell me more about this rebellion," she said, eyed narrowed.
"All right then. Let's call it a revolution. I hate the word rebellion, it's so negative... Mevolent, when he rose to power so many years ago, caused destruction and havoc like we've never seen before. We need to stop him. There will not be another Truce."
"Besides," she sighed as she looked away, "They don't make warriors like they used to."
Fabi lay back down and Ember started to heal her again. "So what do I need to do?"
Ember smiled. "You're a clever bunny, I'm sure you'll figure it out. And one more thing--never think for one second that our leaders aren't as ruthless as Mevolent. They're not doing it for the greater good, they're doing it for revenge. The only reason you SHOULD join is because of that... safety in numbers thing. You wouldn't last for five more minutes by yourself."
She curtsied, and then she left the room.
