“Is he alright?” Riddian asked Diane concerned.

“So far, yes,” answered Diane. “Hopefully his memories will return soon.”

“I hope so, too.”

Diane walked off into the passageway below the single staircase to search for the kitchen, wherever that is in this huge house.

Riddian sighed, gazing up at Luka. ”What should I do with you?”

Luka fell from the ceiling and like a cat landed on his feet and glared at Riddian angrily. The furniture’s in the room was tossed at Riddian, and he stopped them. Placing them back in there correct order with telekinesis.

“Luka, snapped out of this,” Riddian ordered.

“I can’t,” Luka grunted. “I don’t want to.”

“Please Luka, stop this right now.” Luke in a flash confronted his brother, holding on to his shoulder with a sad expression.

“Stay out of my way.” Luka used the back of the palm to hit Luke aside into the breakfront. He grabbed Luke by the neck and stabbed a hand into his chest, holding on to his heart. “Why don’t you just die?”

Telekinetically, Riddian carefully pulled Luka from Luke and bashed him to the wall. Making him unable to move. “Have you realized what you just did, Luka?”

“Why should I care?” Luka asked.

“He’s your brother, your twin, your other half, and you almost killed him.”

“Luke.” Luka gazed at his brother, who was lying on the floor. “I have hurt Luke.”

“Yes. You have.”

“Why would I do that?” Luka looked and sounded confused.

“You are ill and there is no way to cure you than to kill you.”

“Would it stop me from losing my mind?”

“Yes, it will.”

“Then do it Riddian.” Luka grunted painfully as his bloodlust fight to take control of his body. “Kill me! I can’t fight myself any longer.”

“No Riddian,” Luke shouted. He then in a flash stood in the path of Riddian. “I won’t let you kill him.”

“Luke,” Luka said to get his brother attention. He smiled at his brother, whose eyes were drenched with tears. “It’s OK. Riddian will be saving me from loosing myself and so that I won’t be able to hurt you or anyone.”

“I don’t want you to die.” Luke tried to hold back the tears as he looked at his brother, but he couldn’t for long. “I can’t lose you too. I can’t bare living life without you.”

“Could you please tell a girl at school name Caitlyn, I like her a lot for me.”

“No! You can tell her yourself.”

“That dryad,” Riddian uttered while in deep contemplation. “Maybe he can be helped after all.”

“How?” Luke asked, fuelled with hope.

“A dryad song is a very powerful attacking mechanism. As you know, it can cause pain or even death to those who hear it. But if used by a dryad who mastered his or her song, it can be used to undo compulsion or made someone insane, sane again.”

“Are you saying those girls from school would be able to help make Luka better?”

“I’m not sure, but it is worth a try since we have no other options.”

“OK, I’ll go find them, but I don’t know where they live.”

Riddian implanted the location of Tamarin and Caitlyn home which he stole from the girls’ mind earlier into Luke’s mind. “Now go get them.”

“I will,” Luke said. “But promise me you won’t hurt him.”

“I promise now go.”

Luke gazed at Riddian dubiously. As much as a part of him doesn’t trust his sire words, he had no choice but to do so if it means saving his little brother. He then dashed out the door in a hurry.
