"How the mighty have fallen?"  She repeated, incensed by the woman's mockery.  "Who are you?  How dare you speak to me like that?!"

The woman in gray laughed, before looking at her companion, a man dressed in extravagant clothing,  "The more she talks the more I think you where right.  She doesn't want to get out."

"I told you this was a waste of time."  He shook his head, long braid shaking with him.  "Let's just leave her and go."

"No!"  She interjected quickly.  "I'll listen.  I'll listen to whatever you have to say."

"Really?"  The woman asked, switching to German.  "So, you'll listen to me, and you'll do whatever I, or my companion here, tell you to?"

"I hate when you switch to German."  The man muttered, "You just do it because I can't understand you."

"If it gets me out of this tower, I will."  The Countess responded.  

The woman's smile grew a bit.  "Good.  We'll help you, but you'll be in my debt."

If the Countess had the capacity to feel fear, she would have felt it build up in her stomach.  "What will I owe you?"

"Your time.  Your talents."  The woman answered vaguely, twirling the man's braid around her fingers.  "It would be interesting to pick your brain, and have someone who enjoys indiscriminate killing at my disposal.  Really Erzsebet, this is in both our interest.  You get your freedom back, and I get many interesting conversations, a few pest taken out every now and then.  I think it's a fair trade."

The Countess nodded.  "I agree."  

The woman leaned against, her companion, nodding to him.  "Then you'll be outside before you know it."

This is interesting...is it based on any previous work? It feels like a chapter/fanfiction of some sort.

Yes. It's a follow up to another 30 days of writing piece (Tremble), and it's bound to it's own follow up.

Oh, alright! They just presented themselves like preconstructed characters - like they had been developed and presented before - and I wanted to know if they came from anywhere in particular. Cool :) By the way, that means you have very well-developed characters and I could really sense a backstory behind them.
