I wanted to run, turn around, scream, but those eyes held me in a medusa glare. No, please, no. The figure scooped me up, as if I was weightless, something I'd always wished I was. Fingers like steel could be felt under my back. I was motionless , I was helpless, I was
Somehow, I was at the table. Strewn across the table. Creepy woman looked at me, assesing me. I whimpered. She tossed her head back and laughed. The hollow laugh again. This time, though, it had the peal of bells in it.
Who the hell gave birth to HER??
Oh, that bitch. I woud kill her, I would save Gerard and then......we'd run off into the night?? No way,get real. My fantasies were lost in the moment of Gerard actually waking up. He murmured like.....like.....a beast in pain....a drunk ape.Turning her evil towards him, she smiled and put her finger on his lips
"Shh" she whispered, crooning to him."It'll be over soon". My hooded captor said something, something I couldn't hear. She seemed to, and nodded."Youd did well. You did well".
In a savage movement, the evil without a name slid a dagger from out of her boot- which I hadn't noticed yet.
Kissing the blade, she picked up my arm and spoke to me. For the first time.
"You're mine now. Mine. Capich??"
Before I could react, she slid the dagger across my arm. Not once, but thrice. She held out the goblet and filled it with the beautiful crimson that was my life. I had never imagined something so beautiful ever coming out of me, a thought that was probably saved up for motherhood. She raised the glass to Gerard's lips.
"Drink honey, drink. You need it"
The room spun off in a haze of black, and went out of focus.
this ain't the end...
note: Capich is italian for understand.
