Straining against your chains, you did just that…stare at me while our captors left us for the night. I knew what would come next. The feeding. And the choices we would make. The choice you would make. Only together would we survive. I knew this, but you did not. I did not yet know if you would tend to me with the same passion and possession as your predecessor.
“What is this ‘rut’ they speak of?” Your voice rumbled about our cell, echoing off the rough-hewn walls of my prison and your temporary home.
I had no illusions which of us would be here the longest. None of those chained to your side of the wall had yet to survive five moon-tides, although your predecessor had nearly come close.
Battling for supremacy in the pit battered a body, rending flesh and bone, each successive battle piling on injury after injury. The victor by definition was the strongest opponent, but every battle left him broken and a little weaker than before. The sole reason I had yet to face the ultimate degradation of rape was because your warrior bodies sustained injury upon injury over the string of battles to win me.
Ranckor and Icknor didn’t really want anyone claiming me. Not yet. Not when the power of my fear remained such potent nourishment for them. Someday soon, the flavor I put off would fade and they would rig the fights and let someone win. Then, my usefulness to them would fade and I would die. Not yet though, because I remained terrified a warrior would rise out of that pit, like Him, the one You killed moments before. Maybe one even like you?
What manner of beast are you? Intelligent. Obviously. We’re more alike than our captors. Ranckor and Icknor are a mix between serpents and insects, disgusting creatures, although they’re incapable of fucking me. I should be grateful for that.
“Are you mute?” Your golden eyes fix on me, widening as you glance up and down my body. “Explain ‘rut’ to me.”
That is the last thing I wanted to explain to the man, creature, beast, chained to the cell wall across from me. I curled away from you and sobbed.
