I needed her. She was all I needed in life. At first she was just leverage against that monster, Adrian, but I have grown attached.
I don't know how it happened. One second I was torturing her, and the next I was admiring her beauty. I marveled at how long she held in her screams of pain. She was so strong, and I knew I needed her to stand with me. I needed someone strong to rule with me, and I wanted that someone to be her.
I knew it would be hard to get her to agree, but I would do it eventually, even if I had to break her first. You know what they say:
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
