Dominic found himself bound and gagged, and being dragged through the desert. He had gotten careless and slept out in the open. Some of the empire's stragglers had found him and they must have recognized him. So here he was, being forced along by a Gothitelle and a Scraggy. There was also a Yamask nearby as well, it had used disable on him, rendering him immobile. He could do nothing. He felt helpless, completely helpless. It was an odd feeling, being able to do nothing to help himself. He was left at the mercy of his captors and the elements. He knew that he would be shown as much mercy as he had shown other soldiers. It was over for him. He had no escape, no one who would want to help him, and he was helpless. Yet, he felt perfectly at peace.
He felt weak, and he had begun to hallucinate. He saw Damon and a younger version of himself walking towards a pokemart. It was a sunny day, and everywhere it was cheerful. A shot rang out as Damon opened the door, and his friend fell to the ground. He saw himself trying to help Damon up, and then later, fighting the people who came to take his body away. He was alone. All alone, and he felt helpless. His thoughts turned to darkness as he passed out again.
When he came to, Dominic was being forced up by the Gothitelle. “Get up, worm, and watch what our emperor can accomplish. It will be one of the last things that you ever see.” she told him. He heard a horn, followed by yelling voices.
"You heard me! Blow the castle to bits!"
"But lord Dracul, why are we doing this?"
"Isn't it obvious? The piece of rock is in the way!"
"Destoy it or I destroy you!"
"Yes, O mighty master Dracul!"
Dominic struggled again, but was still unable to move. The Yamask must have renewed the disable while he was asleep. He was helpless again, so he just watched.
