"When the linen sack was taken off her head, she saw nothing but the intense glare of a light fixed directly on her face. So bright was its shine that her eyelids barely offered respite from its brilliance.
She felt the cord being wrapped around her neck, once and then twice, fear growing inside her with every passing second. A few minutes later the clacking of many slow-moving gears began, and the horror of her fate was revealed.
The cord tightened at an almost unnoticeably slow rate, it sometimes taking days or weeks for her to feel any increase it its tautness. At first she spent her hours trying to escape, but made no headway at all in discovering a weakness in her restraints. She then became angry and focused her energy on condemning her captors, but their lack of response left her empty and unfulfilled. Finally, in demented desperation, her untethered mind told her comforting stories of a beautiful paradise that lay just beyond the horizon of her life, and at last she found a semblance of peace." -M.D. Walter
