Mother Always Told Me No

“My mother always told me I could be anything, so I told her I wanted to be a princess.”

He paced back and forth in front of his captive as her eyes followed. His hands trembled as he knelt in front of her, breath warming her face as she leaned back in disgust. “She told me I couldn’t. That it wasn’t right for me to do something like that.”

The girl scrambled against the wall as the blade came closer, the coppery stench of soured blood wafting into her nose.
