OOC @Stargazer @~Happily.Ever.After~ Located in the center of a wide valley was a single castle, the only building for miles. It was large and made of white stone. Dark clouds hung over the valley, water pouring down from them. The storm didn't seem like it would pass for several hours, the only thing to be seen in the sky were the clouds. Cold rain hit the walls and window panes of the castle, creating a light lullaby of their own. On the ground floor of the castle was where the dining room was located. Inside was a long table, which sat twelve people on each side and one person at each end. At the further end of the table, facing the door, sat a young and beautiful blonde. Only four servants stood around the room, though there were many more inside the kitchen in the other room. The blonde's striking orange eyes were turned towards the windows, and she watched the storm with a blank expression. "How much longer?" The deep voice came from the hand held mirror, which was laid on the table beside the blonde. Her eyes flickered from the window, to the mirror, and then to the door. "Not long now," she replied, resting her chin upon her fist and crossing her legs beneath the table. She wore a black low cut gown, and bright red lipstick which complimented her fair complexion. "They'll be making their way here soon enough." "Have you considered what happens if they refuse to do as you say," The mirror questioned, a hint of doubt in his voice. "In my experience, children are not too keen from being taken from their homes in the middle of the night." "They'll listen," The witch replied, sitting up straight in her seat as she heard footsteps. "They'll have no other choice."
