Nothing But a Game
A dreadful scream emanated from the basement. I lifted my head and let out a quiet squeak of excitement. I slowly got up from my seat and pushed my hands through my hair as I swayed around the room with a smile, the screaming from the basement continued. I started to lose my balance when suddenly, there was an arm around my stomach holding me up.
“Careful now pet” he whispered in my ear as he reached for my chin with his free hand and pulled my face around towards his.
“Is that my new toy?” I asked in a childlike tone.
“She is indeed poppet. Do you want to meet her?” William uttered as he spun me around and brushed my hair behind my ear. He took my hand and slowly led me towards the basement stairs.
“One step, two step, three step, four.” I sang through excited laughter as we descended. “Oh, the music stopped” I pouted as we reached the bottom of the stairs.
“It will start up again soon pet, you have my word.” William assured.
I slowly stepped around him and towards the girl with the long, messy sand coloured hair that had been tied to the only chair at the back of the room. I walked over and stood in front of her, cocking my head to the left. She whimpered and cowered as far into the chair as she could.
“She’s so pretty.” I grinned as I ran my hand over her face “so smooth. Like a dolly.”
“Only the best for you my love” William was now behind me with his hands on my shoulders.
“Please don’t hurt me” the girl pleaded through tears “what do you want?” I looked at her and smiled.
“I want to play.” I spun around in excitement and looked at William “Oh please William, can I play with her now?”
“Of course you can my dear” He replied with an evil grin.
I turned around and started loosening the girls’ restraints. William was quickly upon me.
“No pet. You don’t want to lose this one like you did the last one do you?”
“You broke my last toy.” I pouted.
“I had to, love.” He tightened the restraints again.
“I get bored quick when they can’t move.”
“It’s only for now pet.” He lightly kissed my forehead and ascended the stairs.
I stood in front of the girl, smiling sweetly and gently swaying from side to side.
“Please don’t hurt me” the girl sobbed.
“I’m not going to hurt you silly” I chuckled “as long as you don’t upset me. William hates it when I’m upset.”
“Do… do you always talk like that?” the girl stuttered “like a child”
I glared at her angrily and rushed towards her. I pulled a double edged hunting knife out of the back of my jeans and held it to her throat. She started breathing heavily and crying uncontrollably. I lent in close and placed my mouth near her ear.
“I can hear your heart beat” I sang softly with laughter.
“You’re crazy.” She said through her tears.
I sat on her lap, facing her and slowly moved the knife to her cheek and sliced into it. I watched in a trance like state as the blood slowly trickled down her face. I ran my tongue over the cut and lent back in ecstasy.
“Yummy.” I muttered as I closed my eyes.
“You’re disgusting” she shouted, pulling me out of my trance. I got up and glared at her with an evil glint in my eyes. I started swaying yet again from side to side, almost like I was dancing. I swiftly struck her across the face with the back of my hand and she let out a horrendous scream of pain. I heard William get up and thud his way back down the stairs with haste.
“Is everything ok pet?” he asked worried.
I wandered over to him and wrapped my arms around his neck.
“Dance with me while the music plays.” I whispered in his ear.
He wrapped his arms around my waist and we swayed together for a few seconds before the screaming stopped. I slowly turned towards the girl, tightly holding onto Williams hand. Her face had begun to welt.
“You’re boring me now.” I turned back towards William “I don’t like this one, it’s mean and doesn’t play like the last one did.” I said in an angry childlike tone “Take it back.”
William pulled me in close and reached for my belt buckle.
“Your wish is my command my love.”
I pressed my lips hard against his as he took my belt from me and slowly strode towards the helpless girl. He created a loop before slipping the belt over her head and pulling it tight around her neck. She struggled furiously for air as her eyes started to bulge. I giggled with excitement as she turned red and started to lose consciousness. Eventually, she stopped moving and the thrill had faded. William loosened his grip on the belt and allowed it to fall before panting a few times. He walked over to me and embraced me tightly, kissing me with passion that he hadn’t shown me before.
“I’ll find you a new toy in the morning” and with that he ascended the stairs, leaving me with the lifeless girl.
