Victoria sat alone in a dark, soundproofed room, but she sensed others. It seemed as if she was in a cavern, everything sealed out in and nothing permitted in.
“Ah, Victorae, what do you know?” demanded an authoritative voice.
“I know everything,” Victoria smirked, “more than you’ll ever know, that is.” He turned her to face him. He slowly stroked her chin.
“Be wise Victorae, you will not last long here; I can have you dead in an instant.”
“You do nothing but threaten me Hendrik” she spat “You are far too weak to inflict any ‘harm.’” He slapped her. He walked out of the room taking one final glance before slamming the door.
