It was total humilation to be genuflecting before the woman who had raped my little sister and scooped out my best friend's eyes.
But I didn't want to die. While there is life, there is hope. My precious life is irreplaceable.
So I plastered on an obsequious smile on my face and meekly got down on my hands and knees.
"My, my, I didn't expect you to bow down so easily. You look like a puppy down there."
I gulped. Maybe I would walk away from this with my life after all.
"I don't have time for puppies, though. Someone should put you to sleep so you don't become a burden on anyone else."
Haruka Banchou then lifted one of her legs, and sent it hurtling towards my prostrated head.
Its heel sank into the back of my head with a disgusting crunch.
