“Didn’t you plan on this?” he snarled, yanking his fin away from her when she reached out to him, her eyes showing the torment she was feeling. A moan bubbled out of her throat.

“I don’t… I don’t know what you mean… Please, Ambrose, whatever you did to me”—her voice cracked and she gasped for breath—“make it stop.”

His mouth lifted into a sneer, even as his chest began to thump with sorrow. He could sense the pounding of her heart, and didn’t know whether to attribute it to the fact that she was possibly lying to him, or just going through the agonizing transformation.

Her eyes reddened and she lifted a hand to her cheeks, as if searching for tears.

She choked on a sob and covered her face. “It hurts. Take it away…”

If she really were with the gods, she would not be feeling this. They contained the powers to heal at will, and it took an enormous amount of damage to make them feel pain like she was.

Ambrose crept forward, reaching out a hand, eyes narrowed. Mari had shown real concern for him in the cave, had stayed when Ceto had appeared, and had helped him to the water. It might all be an act—she could have easily taken Ceto if the goddess had spotted her, if Mari really were of the gods—but he sensed that Mari was true at heart, more than any person he had met before.

She grasped his hand, breathing a sigh of relief before her body seized up, her shoulders bunching behind her and as a heart-wrenching whimper burst from her throat. 

Oh haaaaylyeaaaah. The moment you've all been waiting for has come! *moves the curtain dramatically, giving a great Whoosh!* 

Chapter 6 is out and about as an Easter Present, posted early. >.<

No,he whispered, shock ridding him of rational thought. “This…this cannot be. Not now, not when things are so prosperous.”

But alas, the proof was in front of him. The Soul of the Sea was blackening right before his eye, and he had no clue--

The pages stopped flipping.

In the dim aquatic glow of the spacious room that honored the book, the pages that it had spread open to were blinding. He could barley believe what he was seeing, but as he registered the words and their meanings, the danger was prominent.

And…good. Desired.

Kai could not comprehend why he felt this way, but as the story began to unfold before his eyes, the tale of a deceived king who’s life was stolen from him by the jealousy of one woman…the redemption at the end of the tale was patent.

You guys got a little taste of Ambrose, so now it's time for our hysterical friend Mari. 
So, anyone else curious about what Ambrose looks like? Well, there you go! 

Just thought I would take a moment to point out the amazingness of this moment....lookit the votes. Just lookit 'em. And make sure you read the latest chapter! Clicking the picture will bring you to it. (:
The moment you've all been waiting for is here! Chapter 5 of Captve has been posted.

Haven't read it yet? Here it is! http://www.wattpad.com/14316073-captive-5

PLEASE vote and leave a comment about what you thought, yeah? Ambrose would be mighty happy if you did.(:

Leave me a comment on here too, if you want.(:

So I get in the shower and start thinking about how I'm going to edit chapter 5 and write chapter 6, and consider posting chapter 5 and all that crap...then I friggin get out and I do no writing at all and now I'm at the mall. Sorry guys ):
Chapter 5 is past being done...meaning, I wrote past the limit that I'd planned, and I'm STILL writing. You guys are going to get lucky. 




I can honestly say that I'm shocked I have 880 votes on Captive. Partly because there are only four parts, but also because like...I had no clue you guys liked it so much.

Thank you, to all of my fans, even though most of you won't read or respond to this. Only 20 more and I have 900, and how amazing would that be?!
