Tresspassed: Marianne flies into the Dark Forest in the dead of night to search for Bog.
When Dawn arrived safely at the castle with Sunny and the pair of them relayed what happened to Dagda and Marianne, they sat in complete silence, trying not to react. Then, Dawn had to ask the question.
“What happened to Bog? Why was he all cut up?” she asked innocently, looking from her father, who immediately averted his eyes in shame, then to her sister, who looked incredibly sad.
“A mistake,” sighed Dagda. “A horrible mistake, which we are going to rectify. We’re going to arrest Roland right now.”
“Do I get to punch him?” growled Marianne, holding up a fist, her sadness shifting quickly into a rage.
“Yes,” scowled Dagda. “I only hope we can find a way to reach out to Bog to apologize.”
“But why was Bog beat up?” Dawn looked at her father, repeating the question.
“I thought he took you,” replied Dagda. “He fought back when I had soldiers bring him to the dungeon for questioning.”
Dawn’s lower lip quivered, and her baby blue eyes glistened, filling with tears. “You hurt Bog for something he didn’t do? I’m never going to see him again? I liked him. He didn’t deserve that.”
“We’re going to fix it!” Marianne got to her feet, pounding a fist into the palm of her hand. “But first, Roland is getting what’s coming to him.”
