Bella saddled up the siblings' two horses, Berwald and Tiina with supplies for the travel.
After helping Abel onto Berwald who was a large blond-colored stallion, Bella climbed onto Tiina who was a smaller and lighter blond-colored mare.
She glanced back at William.
"You be safe now, alright? If Arthur comes by, tell him I went on trip and don't tell him where." Bella said.
"Alright. I got it, Bells." William replied as he waved them off. "Be careful you two!"
The brother and sister pair rode on, before evening fell as the two found themselves deep in the woods.
Bella shivered, pulling the red cloak closer to her body.
"Whoa boy." Abel said, pulling the reins of Berwald rather suddenly.
"Abel, what's wrong?" Bella called.
Abel slid off his horse and stepped forward slightly before kneeling down near the side of the path.
"Rabbits." he said rather abruptly.
Bella sighed loudly, seeing the three young and small white rabbits sitting beside the path.
Abel gently lifted each one up and placed them in an inner pocket.
Abel had a habit of rescuing rabbits, despite his scary appearance.
Bella sighed, adjusting the red hood over her golden blond hair.
As Abel returned to Berwald, now with three baby rabbits in his coat, the two froze up when howls were heard in the distance.
Bella glanced around, her green eyes widening upon seeing dark forms in the woods behind the siblings.
Abel quickly climbed onto Berwald.
"Bella, move!" he screamed, snapping the reins and galloping away on Berwald.
Bella snapped the reins on Tiina's reins and galloped after Abel.
Bella felt the branches scratching through her cape, as if to halt her from fleeing.
But she pushed Tiina on, eventually spotting Abel waving from an iron gate.
Bella snapped the reins, forcing Tiina to leap down the steep mound to reach the gate.
She felt her heart beating fast as she made it past the gate which Abel slammed shut with a loud clang.
Bella hopped off of Tiina and hugged close to Abel as a pack of wolves snarled at the metal gates.
Bella glanced to see Berwald nuzzling close Tiina to calm her down.
"So where are we anyway?" she finally asked.
The siblings glanced behind them and froze up.
A darkened stone castle rose above the pair, as if it were silently judging them.
Suddenly it began to rain, soaking the sibling pair.
"Damn." Bella cursed under her breath.
"You find somewhere to keep Berwald and Tiina out of the rain. I'll go investigate this place." Abel said.
"Alright, Abel." Bella said, tugging on the reins of the two horses and leading them away as Abel approached the large wooden doors of the castle.
