Two more days passed. I kept my distance from Anna because I was still suspicious and honestly scared about what had happened with the wolves. But it was hard seeing as I was still locked in a cage.
“Regarde là-bas. Look there.” Felson said. We all looked where his finger pointed, to a large stone building on the edge of a mountain, “Abbey Severac.” We made it past the hard road up to the monastery. My head bobbed to the sway of the wagon.
When we reached the top, the entrance was lined by large stone blocks.
“Hello!” Beheman called, but there was no answer. It was awkwardly quiet. The men looked around.
“Maybe they’re out on a break.” Hagamar commented to lighten the mood. Beheman didn’t seem humored. The men searched the outside of the building to see if anyone was hiding in a corner. Nothing.
“We must check inside.” Debelzeq suggested. All of them but Hagamar went inside. I could tell Hagamar was becoming frightened; he was shaking in his boots. He looked over at Anna and I, his eyes fixating on Anna. She stared back. Her eyes showed no emotion. A thought penetrated my mind; how could she be so sensitive, yet show no emotion? She lowered her head away from his glance and closed her eyes. Her mouth moved, but I couldn’t hear anything coming out of it. I felt my body shiver as she began to sway in small circles. I touched her shoulder.
“Anna?” I said softly. She didn’t even respond. I shook her lightly, still no reply. Then her voice got a little louder. She was chanting something in a language I couldn’t understand.
“Anna, stop it.” I commanded.
“Shut her up!” Hagamar demanded of me. I regarded him.
“J’essaie. I’m trying.” I told him. Then the doors of Severac opened again. Beheman, Felson, and Debelzeq were as pale as ghosts. What happened in there? Debelzeq suddenly threw holy water on Anna. Anna hissed and moved back.
“You fools! I curse you all! You and your damned instruments of worship!” she shouted and spat on Debelzeq. Debelzeq wiped it away. My eyes were locked on Anna; I was shocked at what I was seeing.
“Silence, witch!” Debelzeq commanded. Finally it struck me that no one but the three men had left the building. No monks. I soon realized that all the monks had died somehow. I locked eyes with Anna.
