did was wrong, forbidden. But it felt so right.. How could that be,
against all nature laws?

spoke louder. But they didn't feel comfortable. It was all so wrong.
don't know if this is the right thing to do.. My father will kill you, and
said worried. But he interrupted her by kissing her.
The kiss lasted for a few moments. She opened her eyes and she saw him,
She just knew that it was the right thing to do. She had never felt this
for some one else before.
Alexander kissed her and he felt so wonderful. He never wanted to stop. He

He grabbed Alexander and left, leaving Marianne alone. She couldn't leave
him, she had to free him and let him run away.

slapped her. She fell on the ground. Tears rolled over her cheek. 'Look
She looked at him. 'You're going to your room and tomorrow he will be burned. And you will
have to look at it.'
He left. She stood up and went to her room. She would die if she had to
see his death.
She had to help him escape. She felt her cheek. Blood was slowly running
late in the evening, everybody slept, only Marianne didn't. She walked
slowly in her room, she was dressed and was planning to leave. She had to
be still, else Fride would notice and she would never let Marianne go.
She sneaked passed the bed of Fride and she was at the door, her hand on
the knob, almost out of the room; until a voice said 'What
are you going to do?'

Marianne turned around. 'What did you say?'
going to help you... Now you have to trust me, You wait outside, do you

Tell him that I'm waiting at the place we first kissed.' Marianne
was still a little startled that Fride helped her.

I know, But I love you to much to let him hurt you like this. Go now and
never come back.'
Marianne ran to her and hugged her. 'Thank
you. I will never forget you.' She
whispered in Fride her ear.

eyes had some sort of spark in them. 'Why are you doing this?'

smiled at him. 'Now go on. Go to Marianne...' He sneaked past the guard and left.
was all alone now. It wouldn't be long before the master noticed that they
were gone. She just hoped they had enough time to leave. 'What
are you doing here?' a
voice from behind her asked. It was the guard. 'You
helped him escape?'
I did. So what?'
The guard got mad. He hut her on the floor. But the hit was to hard for
the old woman. She screamed once and when she fell on the ground, she had

She looked up when she heard a scream. Who was it? Was that Fride? She
fell on the ground and started to cry. It was all her fault. If she listen
to her, non of this would have happened.
She didn't know how long she stayed there on the ground; but suddenly she
heard a crack. Some one was running really fast. Alexander she thought.
But then she thought that it could be some one else. She hide herself and
saw a man coming in the moonlight. She felt relived. It was Alexander. She
got out of her hiding place and ran to him. She hugged him.

looked at her. His eyes were so worried. She searched in her pocket
and found something. It was rapped inside a paper. Marianne opened it.
There were herbs in it and then she saw that there was a writing on the
peace of paper. It was from Fride.
She wrote: Take these herbs and leave this place,
this planet... There you will be safe.

hugged her so hard.

don't know... Maybe we should ask it...'
what if this is still the hold. We can't take that risk..'
He took her hands and leaded her out side. She didn't recognise the place. 'We aren't in the hold anymore.'
He was so happy. He felt relieved and happy. He kissed her.
Marianne didn't know how to react to all this. But the kiss made her calm.

girl almost ran to them, she was exited.
Marianne made a little jump.

protected something from under her wings. The mother wasn't to happy that
the father wasn't with her. She looked at the sky and when she noticed him
she said: "Ssssee
our draklings." He landed beside her.
The first drak ran from under the wings and went to a girl near Marianne.
Marianne looked back at the mother and another drak ran to the candidates.
Now it ran towards Alexander and Marianne. "Weskiis." said
Weskiis stopped before them and sat protectively before the two. He wanted
to protect them. Marianne saw the joy in Alexander's eyes. She felt more
safe from that moment.

could see that he wasn't going to move one step away from him. When
everybody was looking to the mother, he walked to Weskiis and gave him a
for your protection...' he whispered to the dragon. The dragon looked for just a second to him
and then went back looking for any enemies. But you could see that the
drak loved to help Alexander.
other candidates had impressed a drak, except Marianne. Marianne looked
around and her eyes rested on Alexander and Weskiis. She smiled and
thought that she would be happy with the protection of Weskiis. But she
still felt a little envied. She went to Alexander and than she noticed
that there was still a drak. It looked just like her mother and that was
why she hadn't seen her.
The little drak was almost falling asleep, but when she noticed Marianne,
she made a happy sound and said: "Valeiski." And
walked to Marianne.

Marianne started to laugh. 'Why are you laughing? It'ssss not funny..'

couldn't stop laughing.
She was just so happy.

was thinking of Fride when Alexander called her. 'Marianne!
Come and see...'
Marianne was worried and ran to Alexander. 'What is it?' She thought maybe
something had happened with Valeiski. It was a little clumsy drak, but
still Marianne would never want to change her with another.
She saw that Valeiski and Weskiis were lying with each other. It was so
