1. Prologue

What? Where am I? Why is it so dark? Why is it so cold?

 

I got up from the floor, which was covered in muck and filth. I nearly wobble back onto my backside but found my feet once I notice I was in black heels. Then I found a broken mirror. I nearly had a heart attack at the sight of my reflection. I had been dressed in expensive black lingerie underwear with suspenders and everything.

 

I don’t remember putting this on. Maybe it was that strange man who kidnapped me. What if he’s a rapist? Why me?

 

I stepped away from the mirror a looked at my surroundings. I’d be taken to an abandoned house. I heard something from upstairs. “Hello?” I called into the darkness as I walked up the stairs. No answer. “Is anyone there?” I shivered. Again no answer.

 

The landing was just a dirty as the bottom of the stairs. I walked a couple of steps then fell through the floor. I landed flat on my back. My felt ankle felt dislocated and broken. Then a hooded figure came out of the shadows. I started to whimper as the hooded man grabbed my left arm and tied it to a to a short pole that had been cemented into the ground.

 

The man also tied my right arm to another pole about the distance from my left middle finger to my right away from the first pole. He did the same with my legs but slightly apart. “Help! Help me!” I cried tears flooding from my eyes. “Tell me how to reverse the curse.” The man said with a deep voice.

 

“What are you talking about?” I wept. The man turned away, picked up a paving slab and put it on top of my body. A small amount of blood splattered from my mouth. “Don’t play stupid!” The man bellowed, “I know you’re a witch. And I know you know how to reverse the curse.”

 

“Please, just let me go!” I screeched. This angered the man so he kept picking up paving slabs and placing the one on top of the other onto my body. My rib cage felt as if it had been crushed. Blood came out of trickling out of my mouth like a red river.

 

Then the man shook his head. He started to take the slabs off. I could hardly breathe. The man then went upstairs and felt me in the dark room. I tried to struggle out of the ropes but I couldn’t. The man came back and untied me. He picked me put and carried me over his shoulder.

 

He carried me outside where a large heap of wood sat with a plank of wood in the middle of it. The man tied me to the plank. I kicked and screamed as the man tightened the knot holding me on to the plank. “One last time,” the man said, “How do you reverse the curse?”

 

“I don’t know!” I sobbed. “Liar!” he roared then he lit a match and threw it onto the pile of wood. I shriek and shrieked by nobody came. The man just sat there watching me burn. Then I heard police sirens. The heat from the fire got hotter and hotter. A couple of officers arrested the man while the fire brigade put out the fire.

 

Once they undid the ropes, my knees gave way and I blacked out.
