Ugh, it's so hard to read this story :(
May i suggest a torture thingie??
The Judas Cradle - victims would be placed on top of a pyramid-like seat, feet were tied to each other in a way that moving one leg would force the other to move as well - increasing pain.
The triangular-shaped end of the Judas cradle was inserted in the victim's anus or vagina. This torture could last anywhere from a few hours to complete days.
This doesn't kill the victim :3 But infection was common xD
Good work on this story! I'm really enjoying it!
