Perequin reached for the scalpel. With trembling hands she brought it to her side. The blade skittered across her stitches. Maybe she could wipe it off. Nothing else was in reach of her.
That sound filled her with dread. She screamed and drove the blade into her side, nicking it on the key. A wave of dizziness washed over her, the corrosive poison gnawed at her side. Blood poured over her hand, her grasp becoming slick.
Her fingers slipped on the blood-soaked key but she drew it out carefully. Her fingers, now numb from the poison, fumbled and the key slipped from her grasp. Desperately she felt around with her toe, trying to grip the key and bring it back to her lock. She caught the key on her big toe and started to lift it to her hand. The toe and hand met. She clutched at the key, but it slipped through her fingers, falling to the floor again.
She clenched her teeth. The wound bled freely, dripping down her thigh. She struggled and reached for the key again.
The room shuddered once more. A door appeared before her eyes. Screaming for her goddess’s forgiveness, she struggled, and, with a click, the iron maiden slammed closed.
“Game over,” the voice echoed in the stillness of the room.
