Deep in the Jungle laying down on a tree a yawn was heard.
"How dull…" A female voice said as she looked around the Jungle as it had been a boring day. "Anything would be a nice change of pace, even a fire." She lamented as it had been the same day after day. She sat up and stretched revealing her scaly snake like lower half which was purple, she currently had it wrapped around the tree to make sure she didn't fall off, the upper half of her looked like a female of twenty years while the lower body was that of a Snake. She had long brown hair that reached to her back and tanned skin due to living in such a warm climate.
She was a Lamia, a race of half woman half snake like creatures. Lamias where rarely seen by normal humans as often they would be accused of being monsters. She was young for her kind as she had left her colony to see the outside world, thus far a part of her was regretting it as nothing ever happened here, maybe she should head back home. She was lonely and rarely got to speak with people as few came out here so deep in the Jungle.
"Time for a nap…" She said and started to close her eyes.
Suddenly she felt something smack her tail getting her attention. "Who's the wise guy smacking my tail?" She asked seating up with a frown. "If it's that Toucan again I'll bent his beak." She said and looked down and gasped in excitement at what she saw. "A Human!" She said seeing a person walking down below. "Finally some excitement." She said with a smile as like all Lamias she was curious about the human kind. She secretly began following her hoping to get closer to her.
Down below a young female human with long black hair with multiple bows in blue clothing huffed and made her way through the Jungle. "Why can't he understand?" She said upset at her father. "I don't want to marry unless it's for love!"
Jasmine, Princess of Agrabah had once again gotten into an argument with her father The Sultan over what was going on, she was nearing her birthday and still unwedded. Being a Female she wasn't allowed to rule her father's Kingdom as due to customs. Suitors and Princes had been brought forth and she had rejected them all.
Angrily she smacked a dangling purple looking vine out of her way as she stomped her way through the Jungle, she had gone off on her own, not telling anyone where she was going as she had gone off deep into it, where few bothered to go.
"That last prince was a pig, he expected me to massage his feet everyday." She said in disgust remembering the Last one. Unaware to her she was being looked down at up above with interest. "I don't want to be a Princess anymore if this is what I have to look forward too."
She was unaware of the purple vine she had smacked sneaking its way towards her. The next thing she realized something had grasped her hand. "What?" She said and turned and saw something wrapped around it. "A tail?" She asked not understanding. Suddenly it pulled upwards and lifted her off the ground taking her into the trees. She nearly screamed as she grasped it with her other hand as she was pulled up past the leaves and branches towards the top.
She reached it and found herself being seated down on a large branch.
"So you're the one smacking my Tail?" A voice said and she looked and saw seated on it with her was a woman who had long brown hair and her entire lower half was like that of a snake.
"A Lamia?" Jasmine asked in shock awe as she had heard about such creatures but only thought they was just a myth her father told her when she was young, now she was seated in a tree face to face with one in person. It would be exciting if it wasn't so unexpected.
"Yes, that's what I am? What's your name?" The Lamia asked her a pleasing smile on her face.
"Jasmine Princess of Agrabah." She responded a part of her unsure if she could trust her. She appeared friendly but it could just be a trap.
"What's a princess like yourself doing here, except for a few birds and Me, there's no one around here." The Lamia asked her curious to know just who she was.
Jasmine frowned remembering why she had come her. "I wanted some time alone, I was upset and needed to vent my frustration's in private."
"I thought Princesses never lost their temper, they where always soft spoken and never raised their voice above a whisper." The Lamia smirked at her and Jasmine scoffed.
"It's a long story," She muttered at her.
"I got plenty of time."
So Jasmine feeling she could trust her began to tell her tale, how her Father The Sultan who was the ruler of Agrabah wanted her to be wed before her Seventeenth birthday, however she hated the snobbish unpleasant suitors who deemed themselves above all others. None of them loved her, they only wanted to marry her so they could become Sultan. Jasmine got more upset as it went on feeling as if nobody understood why she didn't want to wed them.
"And now if I don't select a husband in a week he'll select my husband for me, he just doesn't understand!" She said angrily finishing her story. "…Sorry I shouldn't be venting my frustration at you, it's just I'm upset right now." She said apologizing to her.
"I understand and agree with you," The Lamia said having listened to her and had silently without her knowing examined her.
"I just wish there was a way to get out of this." She said folding her arms skeptically.
A devious thought appeared in the young Lamia's head. "Jasmine," She said with a smile. "If you can keep a secret, I can show you how you can avoid the hassle of being married to some one you don't want to wed."
(And also see to it I don't have to be alone anymore) She thought to herself.
"How?" Jasmine asked skeptically turning to look at her.
"Look into my eyes…" The Lamia responded and suddenly leaned forward at her.
"What are you?" Jasmine said not understanding and suddenly she saw her eyes glow and blue and purple spirals appeared in them. "What's going on?"
"Just look," She replied and Jasmine backed away and hit the back of the tree they where seated on. Jasmine stared into them and slowly her own eyes started to resemble the Lamia's with the blue and purple spirals replacing her brown eyes. Her tail and coils began wrapping around the princess to hold her in place so she couldn't try and escape.
"Look, aren't they soothing?" The Lamia asked and Jasmine could only stare as they stared eye to eye, she began to feel as if something was coming over her.
She was being hypnotized, A Lamia possess great strength for their kind and could snap a man's back if they squeezed them in their coils, but their true power came from their innate and feared ability to hypnotize even the strongest willed person just by looking at them. Making that person drop their guard and leave them helpless, Hypnotized long enough and that person would forever be under their command.
Jasmine weakly tried to pull away and turned her head to look away from the shining colors but The Lamia cupped her face with her hands and forced her to look directly at her.
"Ah, Ah, Ah, mustn't look away." She with a smile responded and wrapped her tail around Jasmine's head forcing her to look her in the eyes. Jasmine could only see the blue and purple colors of her eyes that went faster and faster as she felt her going blank. She felt herself unable to remember anything, Rajah, her father, The Palace, Agrabah, nothing, she could barely recall her own name as her mind was being emptied and how she saw was those hypnotic lights that seemed to go on and on with no end and sight.
Her own eyes where reflecting them as she stared into them, helpless to look away as new thoughts due to the hypnosis where going into her mind, she had lived here, in the Jungle all her life, and her entire life was devoted to being with her Mistress forever.
The Lamia smiled and noticed what she wore around her head.
"What pretty Jewelry," The Lamia said staring at the blue jewel that was in the Tiara wrapped around the hypnotized Princesses' head. "You won't be needing that anymore." She said and reached towards her head and lifted it up off her head and brought it to her face and examined it. Smiling she turned it around and set it on her own head, the Tiara fitting perfectly on her own head. She grinned pleased with it as it felt perfect and looked at her reflection in a nearby pool of water. "I think it looks better on me anyway." She said and continued hypnotizing her making sure she would never get out of it.
The Lamia pulled away seeing how Jasmine's eyes shined with purple and blue spirals in them totally under her control. She was now hers to do whatever she pleased with. She loosened her coils around her as it was no longer needed.
"There, see how easy I made all your problems go away?" She asked with a grin and patted her face playfully. "No more worries about marrying someone you don't want too, no more nagging fathers, it's just you and me." She said wearing the now Former Princess Tiara around her head and brown hair.
"Now then Jasmine, will you stay with me here forever, you'll never have to get married as long as you are with me." She asked bringing her face right up to her own. Jasmine didn't respond only stared blankly and she grinned and her eyes changed color again and made Jasmine bob her head up and down nodding in agreement.
"Good girl," She said smiling at her new helpless pet who would make sure she wouldn't be lonely ever again.
