Chapter One: All Wound Up
I watched the blood swirling through dark water and thought, is this it?
The noose creaked loudly as the chair scraped painfully, and I couldn't help from gasping.
The girl with black hair and piercing eyes moves swiftly through the crowd, throwing out keen glances at the pitiful specimens of humankind that cower in the background, ready to be eaten. A single more second and they would be. But it's okay, everything's all right – she passes on, and the world can breathe again. It's a mark, a gift, a brand, a scar. A stain as thick and spreading, meaningful and irrevocable as any skirt's parasite. She sways as she walks and moves as she talks, her hair falling softly around pale, slender shoulders. Big breasts move enticingly under the temptingly thin shirt. She looks up. Right at you. Then she's gone. And you know what to do.
