"Easy there, I'm a friend." You say to the shadow, its head tilting the other direction.
You had expected something more impressive than a shadow, its throwing you off a bit...
Slowly you approach, holding out your hands in your best friendly demeanor. Hoping it doesn't rage out and scorch you like it seems to have done to the walls.
"I've got your mind, right inside my head." You tell it, standing close now.
Slowly, ever so slowly, you extend out a hand. The shadow raises one of it's own to meet it, a single finger extended. It pulls back for a moment, as though cautious.
"Relax, just trying to help..." You say soothingly.
The next moment, the shadow leaps up from the ground, jumps into the air, and wraps its hands around you.
For a moment, nothing.
The next, the shadow itself is boring into you, seeping inside of your flesh. It isn't painful, but it feels pretty god damn bizarre. You flinch at the cold feeling, hoping this is all going according to plan.
After a few seconds, you are standing alone inside the small room.
"That's it?" You ponder.
Until something lurches right out of your head, it feels as though your skull is being split apart. You howl in pain and drop to the ground, grabbing at your head as though trying to hold it together, to prevent it from being split open. It feels as though it goes on for an eternity, agonizing, until all at once it ceases.
"Do stand up, mortal. I'd prefer not to dwell here any longer."
You look up, squinted eyes and gritted teeth, hoping the pain doesn't return.
Kiara stands before you, or floats, as you notice her feet don't appear to touch the ground beneath. Her hair floats as well, whipping about as though in a fierce gale. Purple eyes glow quite vibrantly now.
