The Return of Petros

Petros grins at you, ignoring Seth's fierce glare. "Well well well," he says with a smirk on his face, "Look who's back. I see you've changed since last we met, but no matter. I knew you'd return eventually." He snaps his fingers and you find yourself being levitated into the air. You are then pulled quickly through the air toward him, and he catches you in his arms. You try to struggle, but find you cannot--it is as if you are tightly bound hand and foot. He mutters something under his breath, and you both disappear just as Seth runs at you with his sword.

You reform in a small clearing in the wood. Petros drops you on the ground. You try to move but find you are still bound by the magic. Petros waves his hand and your dress is whipped off and over to the side. Petos approaches you...

And a strange blur tears out into the clearing and slams into Petros. It is Seth! Petros is thrown to the ground, and you feel a sudden shock that shocks you into an upright position. You find you are able to move again, and you get dressed again as Petros stands up. You watch as Petros's piercing brown eyes meet Seth's cutting blue ones, as both men stare each other down.

Petros draws his gigantic blade and crosses it with Seth's sleek one. "How dare you!" Petros hisses at Seth.

Seth continues glaring at Petros with his cutting icy stare. "Have you no honor, cousin?" Seth responds. "But then again, you never did have any honor. You always were a sneaky, lying, cheating, perverted asshole. Its no surprise you would do something like this. But it ends here. I will not allow you to bring any harm to my friends. And furthermore..."

Seth continues talking, but you don't hear what he is saying. Seth is one of the first people you have ever seen (even back in your own world) who is so noble and honorable. You find yourself admiring and respecting him even more. People like Seth are exceedingly rare, both in this world and back home, and you feel honored that Seth considers you to be his friend.

"...and so, Petros," Seth continues, "I renounce you as my cousin. Don't ever let me catch you around me, or my friend here, ever again. Because if I do, I will kill you without a second thought. Understood?" Petros, clearly nervous, nods hesitantly. "Good," says Seth, "now get out of here!" With one swipe of his sword, Seth knocks Petros's giant sword out of his hand and off to the side. Petros scrambles away, grabbing his sword as he flees.

Seth turns to you and, noticing your awed and shocked expression, lets out a laugh. "Are you alright?" Seth asks, "Did he do anything?"

You shake your head. "I-I'm fine," you say.

"I'm sorry about Petros," Seth says. "This did remind me of something though. After we get you your weapon, I need to teach you how to resist magic so an incident like this doesn't happen again."
