Okay, so I am rewriting this. I will try very hard to keep it going. You'll just have to bare with me.
Claire had been called to Amelie's office as she was readying to leave the lab. For what, she did not know. When she asked, she was hung up on. So, Claire made her way over there, hoping it would be a quick meeting. She didn't want to have to call Eve to pick her up.
When she arrived, the ice queen was standing in front of one of the tinted windows, facing outside. Just as Claire was about to open her mouth, Amelie spoke softly "I need to know I have your full cooperation for this. It is of the utmost importance. You will have to follow my every order. Is that clear?"
"What is this about?" Claire asked cautiously.
The Founder turned from the window and looked Claire in the eyes. "The safety of the town. Now, was that clear?"
Claire shifted from one foot to the other, uncomfortable under Amelie's steady gaze. She wanted to tear her eyes away, but could not find the strength. Claire swallowed loudly and nodded. "Y-yes, ma'am," she stuttered out.
"I am glad to hear that. What I am proposing is purely experimental. I'm not entirely sure it will work, but it's the best plan we have, without killing you outright. Do not run." Amelie got a dangerous look in her eyes, as if daring Claire to go against her. The icy blonde approached the young girl, slowly at first, almost hesitantly, then sped forward, just a blur of pale color.
Claire felt a burning pain at the base of her neck before she could comprehend what was going on. A shriek caught in her throat as she fell limp.
Tell me what you think...
