Fred had no idea what the odd, oily-looking youth was reading, or what he
was reading it from, but he instinctively knew it was no good. If he'd
been able, he'd have run screaming from the room - or lopped the boy's
head off, whichever seemed more practicable. Instead, all he could do was
stand there, trapped in the frail form of a young teenage girl.
Similarly frozen, Belboz could only seethe inside. Blast Elaine - he has no idea what he's dealing with! He could easily wind up obliterating us, himself, the entire kingdom! He and the Amazons are playing with fire!
Finally, Elaine stopped his chant, and a hole appeared in the air a few feet in front of the two girls. It formed a portal which glowed with a variety of colors.
"Recognize it, o comely former master?" Elaine sneered at Belboz. "It's the Transform Door! Anyone who steps through it will instantly be whisked away - and when they arrive, they'll be changed. Im sending you and this other little doxy through it, and once I do, I'll be forever beyond your grasp - providing either of you even remembers me, or your old lives!" Elaine laughed in his irritating cackle. "Yes, I've worked out something special - very special - for you and your girlfriend here. And while you two live your new lives, me and my Amazon allies will be busy running the kingdom! Now - walk!"
Immediately, Fred and Belboz began to march toward the portal. They walked slowly and stiffly and against their will - but still, they walked.
"So long, master!" Elaine laughed. His laughter rang in their ears as they marched into the portal.
As he entered, Fred felt as though he were being pulled in a million different directions at once. Where are we? Where's Belboz?!? We've got to get back! Have to stop - to stop - oh! Wha- what's happening? Feel so - so dizzy! So strange. I - we - uhhhh.
How long it took, neither of them could say. Finally though, they emerged from the portal. They staggered and then looked around trying to remember who and where they were.
