Inside Elena's mind was a losing battle. The true Elena was stuck in the back of her own mind, imprisoned there by the Mara. She had strained against the bonds that kept her from gaining back her own control, but she was weak. And now, she was feeling rather sick as Mara used her body to flirt with a human boy. Demetri...
she cried, but her body would not obey her. Her body only followed the commands of Mara.That's a cute boy you have there,
Mara mentally said to her prisoner. Too bad I might have to destroy him... though, maybe I'll keep him as my own personal toy. I've never been able to have a boy to myself, and that's all due to the stupid vampire who changed me so young in the first place.
Elena gave a feeble snarl. Don't you dare touch him. It wasn't my fault that you were changed at your age.
Her mental voice was tired, and quiet.And what are you going to do if I do touch him. He probably wouldn't know the difference, and you don't have the ability to stop me.
Mara gave a evil girl laugh. Besides, if I have you under my hold long enough you won't need him anymore. In fact, you will hardly notice anything I do with you. You won't exist.
With that, Mara shut Elena tighter into the back of her mind, leaving Elena to panic. She was going to disappear? She struggled against her imprisonment with more fervor. A while ago, all she wished was to disappear. She had nothing! But now, she had friends, and people to care about.
Mara turned her attention from to the human in front of her. He was totally making an idiot of himself. He was practically drooling! She waved off her disgust, and started thinking about Elena's Demetri, noticing that he wasn't in the group following her. She would have to get him for herself later, but for now, she had something else to do. Mara faced those who had followed her, or Elena's body, and with a sigh of impatience asked, "Is everyone ready yet?"
((People in the castle: There are four of Mara's henchmen in the castle. Feel free to do whatever you want, you can even give them whatever characteristics you want. They are basically there for your entertainment, and I've been purposefully vague about them, so use your imagination.
