CCSW Chapter 1"Go."
Turning he stood staring as hard at that crack, in that stone, in that wall, that was opposite of her form, as he could. To think she had the nerve to even look regal sitting on the floor. He had to do this. The words felt like acid as they came out.
"I don't want you any more."
He tried a smirk even if she couldn't see his face. Even if it was a lie to himself. Feeling her movement as much as hearing it he knew she stood, heard her breath accelerate. Oh, If he saw her tears he may be swayed to believe her. To think that someone like her could love him. Want him. No he had to block out the sweet poison, he couldn't be weak. She was out the cell's door, he was nearly free! But then she was turning and shouting at him. Staring down the dark one nearly nose to nose.

When Mirana came to check on them, she didn't even frown at the sound of her heels clicking on the marble floor. The racket of a silver setting or the alluring smell of food and tea from it, didn't cause a twitch of her small button nose. No it seemed nothing could touch Alice in the recuperative trance she was in.

All he did was stretch slightly, when he did so his spine torqued and jostled her just the slightest bit. Her blue eyes flew open and she lifted up to watch him.
