Garnet and Damon stood by the large castle window.  This was the place they stood to reinforce their pact to each other every day.

Now, after six years of captivity they were still fighting for their freedom. Having been kidnapped by Mr. Marshall when they were eight years old, they knew very little about the real world.  Their world consisted of constant training to fight, and they were soon to be assigned their first mission.

Even at the young age of eight they knew they didn’t want to be forced into the militia. On the first day of their captivity they made a secret pact between them.  It was to be strong, learn everything they could and prepare to use that knowledge against their captor.

They stared down at the lifeless body of Mr. Marshall and neither of them had even an ounce of remorse!
