As Zora races to save herself and those precious to her, will she survive and win against the evil that threatens to swallow her up?

The man watched the young woman’s eyes open and then widen in shock as she looked down at herself lying on an operating table with sterile drapes covering her lower body.

Her attempts to speak were futile against the duct tape that sealed her lips, and clink-clank sounds rent the air as she struggled against the soldered metal restraints that held her down.

His eyes gleamed at the sight, and his breath quickened.

She looked ethereal with her skin glistening with sweat, a delectable artwork in an otherwise sterile white room, even as the recessed ceiling light washed over her and yet cast shadows over where he stood.

The man sniffed the air, and the aroma of fear, confusion, and dread that radiated from the woman filled his nostrils and tingled his senses.

The corners of his lips twitched upward. Just the right combination, which meant she was ready for him. Yet he lingered for a moment on the scene before him, enjoying it for a few minutes before stepping out from the shadows.

“Shh, relax,” he said as he picked up a syringe filled with clear liquid from an open sterile pack that lay on a nearby instrument table. “You want to be free, right?”

The young woman managed a nod, the bouffant cap that covered her head slipping backward to expose her blonde bangs.

The woman’s face turned ashen at his words. Her chin trembled, and she struggled to pull her arm away from him. But the restraint held it in place and instead left red marks around her wrist.

He brushed his fingers against the marks as if to smooth them. It wouldn’t do to mar his masterpiece. “You read the fine print, didn’t you?” he continued.

The woman’s eyes bulged, and her whole body trembled as understanding of what would happen next dawned on her.

This was the moment he loved the most: when they realized they were now at his mercy, and that they’d brought it upon themselves. How could they have believed he wouldn’t enforce the terms of the contract? He chuckled at the thought.

Then he patted her arm as if calming a fussy child. “Shh, now relax,” he said. “I’ll take care of you nice, quick, and easy.”
