My whole body hurt. My head felt like it was going to pound it's way through my skull. My arms ached from the angle I was tied up in to this chair, which in turn was tied to a pole.
I hate the fact that right now, I feel powerless. I couldn't bring myself to open my eyes, because I knew what would be on the other side.
The monster I tried to protect.
The monster they tried to warn me about.
The monster I thought couldn't hurt me.
She did this to me.
She fucked me up pretty bad.
"Who's going to save you now Hawaii? Where's your little girlfriend when you need her? It's just you and me. It always has been, and always will be." Her voice, once sweet and innocent, now spat knives at me.
"Open your eyes Keo. I want you to watch what I'm about to do to you."
No. Don't do it. Don't open them.
"I said open your fucking eyes!" She slapped my face as hard as she could. My head whipped sideways and the smack echoed through the room. I felt blood gush through a new cut on my cheek because of the ring she wore on her hand. She grabbed my hair roughly and yanked my head back.
"I want you to watch me tear this knife into your skin. I want you to watch yourself bleed for what you did to me and my family."
She let go of my hair but I still didn't open my eyes. I couldn't.
"I want you to feel everything you did to me. Your girlfriend can't save you now."
Against my will, she forced one of my eyes open. I started back up at her. Her bloodthirsty eyes. Thirsty for my blood. I saw the knife in her other hand, raised in the air and poised to strike.
And I'm powerless to stop it.
