"No, please let me go." Ella was being dragged by the men showing no mercy.

Her most horrid fear was coming true. She was being dragged by those men like how she was few years ago. The town members who would never sin by touching her was holding her in tight grip.

"Bryon, leave me. Please let me go. I was like your sister till years ago then why are you doing this to me? You are taking me with no good intention, right?" Ella begged him but in vain. The men kept on dragging her like an animal.

Ella tried to free her hand from their hold but the man who was holding her from one side, stopped walking and slapped her harshly. Ella stumbled back and eventually fell down on her knees.

Though Ella didn't know why they were hauling her, she did understand that it was for no good to her. She knew that the villagers think of her as a bad omen and would not dare to touch her unless it was for their sick contentment.

Married women used to close their eyes when she would come in their sight and mother used to cover the eyes of their children so I couldn't cast evil spell on them.

The men continued to haul Ella to the other side of the hill where other villagers were waiting in a baited breath. Ella didn't know where Gode went but she was thankful that her friend was not there. Villagers would've taken advantage of her affection towards her friend and might have hurt Gode.

On the other side of the hill, the villagers and the people from the surrounding villages were standing in and whispering to one another. Ella could feel the happiness waving from them. They were looking extremely pleased probably because they and their family were safe from misfortune.

Ella could only cry when the villagers were smiling brightly at her. How can someone's misfortune make them so pleasant?

The men took Ella further into the woods towards the lake, followed by the villagers. She got scared but for once she was feeling peaceful too. If the solution to stop the calamity was drowning someone or killing someone, then for once she was pleased by it. She hoped they drown her or if needed kill her like they killed her family at the least she would not have to live with the constant fear every moment of her life.

She could be free.

On the shore of the lake, there were two boats and the town head, Knox Garrick waiting. Knox immediately smiled at Ella and walked towards her with excited clap.

"Ella, dear, here you are." Knox caught Ella's shoul

espect. Knox and the men bowed down to him and Lord Knight nodded his head curtly asking them to take their seats. He threw a sideways glance towards the unconscious Ella and the grip on his cane tightened slightly.

"What was so important that you asked for an assembly at this time of evening?" Lord's dark authoritative voice sent shivers through the men and Knox's hands shivered a little at the power. Biting down the sudden fear arising inside him, Knox stood up and bowed down to the Lord once again.

"My Lord, we are extremely apologetic for visiting in rush of time but the matter in hand cannot wait till the morning." Knox apologized briefly and noticing the grim nod of the Lord, he continued, "As you know the floods has struck havoc in the Shadowvalor and the other villages around it and took many lives, we stumbled upon a solution to calm the nature's anger." Know continued to tell the whole scenario of the rituals and the solution given by the sacred witch.

Lord Knight grew grimmer and his breath was coming out in rage but the villagers are too frightened to look up and notice it. His hold on his cane tightened further looking at Ella's comatose body. Suddenly the atmosphere changed and the Lord looked at the men with a leer. Knox mistook as the smile of approval and the other men did not even dare to look up at the Lord's face.

"It is excellent that you are doing so much for the town, Knox. There is no reason for me to decline it." Lord said with his signature smirk and Knox released a sigh of relief. "But, I have a condition here." The Lord's further clause made the men spring up in bewilder.
