Evie’s beginning to see their point…

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

THWACK!  Something struck the back of my head. “Don’t try nuthin’ humie!” the leader snarled. 

“OWWW!”  I cried, putting my hand on my head and looking for the source.  A spear point poked into my cheek, dissuading me from making any other sudden moves.

“Git ‘at gear off’n ‘er,” the leader commanded his squad.  “An’ watch ‘er close, hold ‘er down!”

I felt the top of the net loosen slightly, yet it remained taut from my rear to my ankles.  Tiny hands moved through and under the net, unbuckling my armor and sliding it off.  One by one, my pauldron, gauntlets and bracers were removed and stowed into the snotling’s packs.

My scarf was pulled away and my long gloves were slid from my arms.  I didn’t resist, not with the spearpoint at my cheek, but all their tugging and pulling on me still rolled me back and forth in the snow.  Soon my blouse and bustier were soaked through and I shivered in the cold.

“Git ‘er arms together an’ bounded tight,” the leader commanded.  “Youse just knows she’s itchin’ t’ fight ya.”  He leaned down and looked me in the eye.  “Ain’t that right, Ranger?”  

Aw, crap.  There wasn’t much point in denying I was a Ranger after he’d seen all my gear.  

He was right, I wanted to fight, but the odds were clearly not in my favor.  I winced as my wrists were crossed in the small of my back, lashed together and cinched tight.  I was theirs, for now.

Ewwww…

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

Another creature responded to the first’s lewd comment with one even creepier:  “Yeahhhh…an’ I want sommeh ‘er ‘air for me special prize box.”  That drew laughter.  “She pretty.”  This one was running his hands over my leather-clad legs, too–feeling his hands through my boots was gross enough.  I got a chill, and not just because I was pinned down to the cold wet ground.

“Look, uh….sirs,” I said deferentially.  “I didn’t mean to trespass and I’m sorry if I insulted you.  You caught me, fair and square.  I will pay whatever toll is fair if you let me leave your woods.”

The squad leader gave me a disdainful look.  “Arr’gant humie.  Try’n tells me what fair is.  We’s gonna takes whatev’r toll we wants, an’ youse gets no says innit.  That  what fair is, ‘ere.”  

I nodded in acceptance.  “I understand.  But you don’t need to tie me up, Sir,” I repeated hopefully.  “I’ll cooperate, I’ll give you my gear and everything I have, I won’t resist you.”

Finally the snotling boss’ face broke out into a wide grin.  “Ahh, but youse sees, girlie.  We’s likes how humie girls looks all bounded up.  An’ nekkid.  An’ bounded an’ nekkid,” he cackled.


‘Aww, fork me,’  I muttered.  ‘Not again.’  Well, at least my hands were still unbound.  I slid one hand up my body near my head, and prepared to push myself up to go on the attack.  It wouldn’t be easy with bound ankles, but I figured I could take out a few of them from my knees.

One-track minds…

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

‘Ropes??’ I thought, suddenly alarmed.  Getting untangled from the net while trying to reason with notoriously unreasonable creatures was one thing…I couldn’t let them get me fully restrained and vulnerable until I had a better handle on the situation!

Wait!” I cried, writhing in the net.  “You don’t need to tie me up!  I was just trying to help you!  There’s an ogre in these woods, and I don’t want to see you all get hurt.  I’m no threat to you!”

“Youse?  A threat t’ us?”  The snotling leader cackled.  “We’s th’ only threat ‘n dese woods, girlie.  We’s da threats to youse!  Ain’t no ogre ‘round ‘ere none, neither.  This’ our  woods.”

Hands gripped me while the net lifted off my lower legs.  Other hands held the net taut over my upper legs and body, keeping me well controlled.  My booted ankles were brought together and wrapped in coils of rope.  I tried kicking with my feet, to which the leader replied, “tighter!”

‘At least they’re not stripping my boots off,’  I thought. That was a good sign.  I’d heard stories of snotling depravity, especially with human women.  ‘I’m going to be ok,’ I thought for a moment.  I just needed to be patient, and wait for them to make a mistake or leave an opening to escape.


Those hopes dimmed a little, though, when one of the little creatures grasped my inner leg and squeezed it.  “Hehe, ya think the bossll give us a taste, eh??”

Uh-oh…Evie’s in a little bind now…

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

“Quit callin’ me ‘li’l guy,’ girlie!” he snarled in a lower, more commanding voice.  “Youse the pris’ner of th’ Snotling Squad nows!”

Snotlings?  I thought.  I’d heard stories of creatures called snotlings before.  They were like goblins, only smaller.  And while goblins were impulsive and horny and self-destructive and generally unpleasant, snotlings were supposedly driven completely by their most base desires, with no impulse control or self-preservation at all.  I could actually be in a bit of real trouble here.

Looking up at my green captor and his orange mount standing over me, he now looked a lot less like a cuddly little goblin youngling, and a lot more like a gnarled and greasy little wretch with malicious intent.  What a difference a little perspective made.

And now—as the creature said—I really was his prisoner!

He also seemed to be the leader of his little squad of snotlings, because he began barking orders at the others.  He warned them to keep the net taut and keep my body pinned down until they could restrain my limbs.

“Tie dems ropes nice ‘en tight!”

Uh-oh…Evie’s in a little bind now…

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

My chest burned as I tried to catch my breath.  I wanted to get my hands underneath me and push myself up, get the net off me, but I couldn’t get my fingers and hands untangled.  And something seemed to be holding the net down to the ground.

“Hey!” I called out when I got my breath back.  I craned my neck to see my little green captor standing over me.  “I was only trying to help you, little guy!”

I heard high-pitched laughter all around me.  I sensed movement and felt tugging on the net.  Again I tried to push myself up off the ground, but weight on the net pinned me down.

I writhed about anxiously, looking all around, to see more of the little creatures surrounding me.  There were several of them, and they were holding or standing on the net to keep me trapped.

For the first time since I met the youngling, I began to feel like I might be in some danger.
Worse, the cold snow was chilling my bare flesh from chin to knee, and soaking through my white linen blouse.  I was never going to get the mud out of the fabric!

It’s getting good!

Evie scouts the northern woods for a troublesome ogre. But there are other creatures besides ogres lurking in the forest!

~~~~~~

My confusion made me pause…and I paused just a second too long.

I was still straightening and turning to see who the little guy was shouting at when something whizzed by my head…and something else struck me in the back, knocking me forward.

I gasped out loud as I realized it was a weighted throw net!

Someone or something behind me had cast a net over me.  I was already off-balance from leaning over the little guy, so I couldn’t prevent the net carrying me to the ground.

My knees landed first and slid on the snowy ground.  I tried to put my arms out to break my fall, but my hands tangled in the net.

My chest hit the ground hard, knocking my breath out and stunning me for a moment.
