Cruelty's Father

My heart was frozen in time; frozen in her soul, in her mind, and in her heart. I was forever hers, and she had left me. I stood staring at the mirror, resenting it for revealing all my flaws to me. Only when I looked upon myself did I regret the things I’d done in her absence. Only then did I feel a stab of guilt. It didn’t last long.

With the hilt of my knife I spun and smashed the mirror, a cry on my lips. Suddenly I felt better… back to normal.

I turned and grinned at the small girl lying naked and helpless on the floor. She stared at me with fear in her eyes. I laughed and spit in her face. She squirmed away but I fell upon her, pinning her to the floor.

I didn’t care anymore. Nothing mattered but destroying everything. Destroying this girl forever.

I tried to cause as much pain as possible as I entered her, and she screamed bloody murder. Laughing, I pushed harder and she slumped down unconscious. I scowled and pulled out.

She was no longer important, so I shoved my blade down her throat.
