Of course Caitrin didn’t listen to Richard as he told her that she wouldn’t be able to get the chain off. He probably just wanted to stop her trying to get the chain off anyway. She continued to try and pull it off her wrist and was becoming more and more annoyed when it wouldn’t budge. Caitrin wondered if she could use her magic to get the chain off, but she quickly dismissed that thought, even if she could she wouldn’t be able to do it now would she? She would have to wait until Richard was asleep or something like that to test that theory out. Caitrin pulled the hand with the chain on it outwards slightly and found it didn’t seem to stop in length, it just kept stretching. Furrowing her brows she set her hand down on her lap and just stared in front of her, unable to bear the humiliation of being beaten by a bit of string.
As Richard confirmed what his intentions were, she just felt herself falling into quite a foul mood. The last thing she wanted to do was look like she had been dragged back to Camelot like some naughty child who was being scolded. She had wanted to go back in her own time and show that she had some control over her life. But of course Richard had to ruin that little plan didn’t he? Did he even care why she had run off in the first place? He hadn’t asked so she presumed that he didn’t. Caitrin wondered what he would think if she did tell him, which she had no intention of doing right now anyway so it didn’t really matter. “Why couldn’t you have just left me alone?” She asked him angrily, not looking at him but looking down at the chain on her wrist once more, “I was perfectly fine until you came along!”
Though she was awake, she still felt slightly groggy, but she assumed that was an after effect of whatever he had given her. Caitrin felt slightly dizzy as she sat upright, and, as annoying as it was, let her head rest on Richard once more as it was the only way she could think to make herself feel less dizzy. His next words made her laugh, of course she’d try to escape. In fact, the intention to run off was still at the forefront of her mind if she got the chain off; she still had her coin purse in her pocket, or at least she assumed she did. She didn’t check, because that would only draw attention to the purse. “Run away? Now what would give you that idea?” She asked, half rolling her eyes and setting her eyes back on the scenery in front of her. She wondered just how far they had travelled while she had been sleeping.
He would make her walk? Was he being serious? “Are you this polite with all the women who you kidnap?” She snapped back at him, presuming he was used to doing this kind of thing for a living. Caitrin wondered for a moment whether he would actually make her walk, he’d already kidnapped her, surely that was enough. She raised her eyes to him and glared at him, “You wouldn’t dare.”
