"You say, you care about Edmund, but why did you leave him there with that witch?"

Suddenly I remembered about Maria's existence. She is here. Why? I was ready to pull my hair out by the amount of stress and worries I experienced. The pacing back and forth through the empty room didn't help me to relax.

"Calm down, Thea. He is completely capable of handling her." Victoria made a small smirk. "She will regret her visit."

I sat down on a single chair, which was left in the corner of this lonely room. With sense of defeat I glanced at Victoria and the door behind her.

"How long are you going to keep me here?" I was waiting for her response, while other thoughts of Maria troubled my mind. "Why is she here? It's been a while, since she made herself noticed."

"I am not trying to keep you against your will. If you wish, you are free to go." Victoria opened the door in silence.

She waited and waited for my next move, but I couldn't get the needed courage to face my rival yet. I stared at the blank spot in front of me.

The front, where my and Edmund's throne was standing, a small circle had formed leaving only one person standing in the middle. No body saw me, their curious eyes were focused on the newcomer. I recognized Maria's sun white hair, her dress purest color, almost white. She looked like a bride in some way, but at the same time, her outfit was so much like of any other girl.

All I could see was her form standing between me and Edmund – an obstacle, someone who I should remove from my life, if I wanted my future to hold brighter moments and memories.

"Leave this place right now!" I said calmly, trying to hide my raging emotions.
