Valmae was groggy from being stunned and ennervated several times. Apparently the bastards who had taken her didn't want to cause her serious harm at the moment but their threats had gotten more vicious the longer she declined to be the good girl and cower quietly. The gag they'd shoved in her mouth had made her obey the 'quiet' part of their demands. But other than slapping her about a bit - with her tied to a chair, the cowards! - and repeatedly hitting her with different flavors of stinging and mild pain spells that was all they'd done thus far.
She wasn't completely out of it and knew that something was different when the burliest of the bastards picked her up chair and all and slung her into the corner. About the time she bounced off the wall and toppled over to land painfully and awkwardly on her side, spells were flashing all over the place. Valmae made a sound of pure, pained frustration as she strained against the ropes holding her in place.
