His laughter echoed through the empty space she occupied, making it hard to understand where exactly it was coming from. Maddie stood in near darkness, a very low light causing everything to look gray, a mist blocking out any view past a foot in front of her. The color didn't matter at the moment, it was the laughter that mattered. She knew that laughter. She had heard it before, it would never fade from her memory.
It was Blue.
The laughter was getting louder now, and although she couldn't tell the direction Maddie knew it was getting closer. He was getting closer.
"Maddie the Chaste put in her place..." the voice mockingly said in a hear singsong tune, accompanied by yet another chuckle. "How appropriate. I was wondering when you'd show your true colors."
Maddie was turning now, looking for him, the voice so loud now that she was sure he would appear from the mist at any moment. "True Colors?"
"Yeah, that famous Peep reputation... you could play the saint for me... but we both knew you'd give in to temptation sooner or later." The voice continued to mock her. "How did it feel to become tainted?"
"I'm not tainted." Maddie growled out. "I didn't..."
"You did... Took a Wolf to trick you into bed... If I'd have known I would have put on a tail years ago."
Maddie started breathing heavy. "Thats enough..."
"Not even close." The voice was over her shoulder now, a breath on her ear as it whispered. "He used you... played along with your game and then got what he wanted..."
"It wasn't like that!" Maddie yelled angrily, turning quickly to look at Blue but still there was nothing but the gray. "He... He loved me!"
"Sure he did." The voice said from over her shoulder again. "Bet he loved every inch of you..."
Maddie turned quickly again, gasping. "It wasn't like that! It was special. It meant something to me..." She wiped away a tear.
His voice came from behind her again, this time a pair of arms came from the mist and wrapped around her middle, holding onto her tight, so close she couldn't turn enough to see him there. "I'm bet it did..." he whispered, his grip growing tighter. "Maybe you'll let me show you something special now that he's 'broken the ice'. I'll make you melt, Maddie..."
"LET ME GO!" she screamed, fighting against the hands now, trying to turn and twist out of his arms but the arms held tight, moving with her like a second skin. Next she knew she was sitting up from the ground, throwing her blanket off of her, gasping, covered in sweat, cold tears sliding down the side of her face.
