It was four in the morning, the rain fell hard. The hunt was over. It had come to this.
Luna was trapped. Asa closed in from behind. She begged for mercy. He didn't listen. He was angry.
He had horrible plans for her. The rain dripped from his chin. He tortured her with a smile then took her by the throat. She couldn't stop him.
He tightened his grip.
He told her to forfeit.
She woke up instead.
With eyes wide open, Luna took a deep breath. She felt her neck. It was bare except for a chain Asa bought her.
She took it off and set it aside, then Luna went back to sleep.
