“Next!” He shouted as he went to the sink and washed his hands sullenly and steadily, mesmirized into observing the red that was all over them, dissapearing.

The next one was brought into the room. He didnt even see her face before he straped her to the chair and resumed his experiments. Cuts on the arms, and then electrocution. Her agonizing screams of pure despair and horror were as normal a sound to him as the birds chirping outside, and he couldnt tell the difference between the two if you asked him.

“God punish me.” he whispered to himself.

It was over earlier than he had imagined. Fifteen minutes she had endured the pain. Well, he thought, she hadnt been fed for a few days, maybe that was reason.

“Next!” The next one was a kid. Nothing unusual. Strap him to the chair as he had done with the others and then electrocution followed. During that time, he thought about how many experiments he could perform before the deadline. He had to produce substancial evidences, or else...

He cried out in pain. Holding his deformed hand and looking up at the ceiling. “And what’s taking you so long?” he howled at the roof, an observation someone looking at him would make, but his eyes, were searching for something beyond it.
