The Legend of Yennefer: Chapter 11

The Legend of Yennefer: Chapter 10

Written by - TheFoxBride

"That my dear, is for your Ciri"

The chair next to Yennefer was similar but set atop a pedestal and angled upwards.

Dimeterium shackles and chains strapped her tightly into frigid restraint. Despite being beaten and taken prisoner, Yennefer could recognise Vilgeforz's voice as it rumbled throughout the excessively bright chamber.

She spat on the floor and slid her tongue over her bloodied teeth.

"I have waited long enough" growled Vilgeforz, but I can wait no longer

He methodically pushed several Iron needles into her scalp as Yennefer grimaced in silent pain

She could feel magic pulse through her mind as it dug deeper and deeper.

"Once we capture the girl, perhaps I will have Rience remove one of those pretty green eyes of hers. Oh how much he loves to use THOSE fingers of his."

Yennefer looked over ot seer Rience rub the burn marks on his face, bringing a moment of joy. It left quickly as even larger needles dug into her hands, some hitting their mark. While others tore through her bones. Throuugh gritted teeth she held her composure and maintained silence.

"The only way to find Ciri must be through an emphatic probe.  Sure I could have abducted Triss Merigold, the 14th of the Hill. Oh that hill, do you remember Yennefer?"

The likeness of the man infront of her was in stark contrast to the mage that led the defence of Sodden.

His disfigured face was emphasies by a reghenerating left eye which was must smaller than the other.

The sorceresses eyes glazed over and became cloudy but her memory of that day was anything but. The trust she, and others placed in her torturer filled her with silent rage.

"Such innocense in those days, the brotherhood..."

Vilgeforz laughed to himself as he pulled a large megascope close to her face.

"This will be very painful but your cooperation is neccesary. I want to see Cirila, now show me where she is."

Yennefer clenched her teeth and felt she was going to break them clean off. She released only to let out a final retort. "Go to hell pig"

"Rience,"  The torturer belowed "tighten her wrists.... slowly."

The mental jousting of the sorcerer and sorceress continued for some time . Yennefer did everything she could not to think of Ciri, but this unfortunately led to thinking about her other love.

"That's enough" hissed Vilgeforz  "Take her away"

Several men strode in and dragged the unconscious woman out of the room.

"What did you see?" a tall half-elf with numerous sharp blades hanging on his belt was the first to break the silence.

The mage snickered "The Witcher. I was unaware she had feelings for him but nevertheless I have his location and that of the Nilfgaardian traitor, that imbicile poet....and some Woman. Now which of you do i send to put an end to the Witcher question once and for all?"

"You won't find many that will say Stygga castle was where that climactic battle occured, but it is truth"

Nimue's words were returned with sceptical ears and wide eyes.

"The lodge was tricked into thinking that Rhys-Rune was the location, but they were mistaken. Then where is Stygga Castle? It was removed by several sorceresses so that the legend would be a false one and lose the power that would undoubetdley come from it. Those who seek power usually do so in an attempt to control information and  through that, control the masses. Perhaps it has worked as you have never heard the truth until now. Even so, do you believe me? 

Legends and their lessons flow thorugh us and even at a metaphysical level they can dictate actions and beliefes.

Stygga castle is no longer a physical place to visit but rather an event that changed the world forever. We live in a reality that is the result of the actions fo that location., So if you ask em where stygga castle is, it is nowhere and it is everywhere"
