Chapter 40 Spoiler Chapter 40 They are on a Highway to Hell The set-up was the same as the one located in Sin City, but this one was a bit wider. Cells with wooden doors lined up on both sides of the underground hallway. Hans opened them one by one and put a girl in each cell. The girls were whimpering and curled themselves up when they entered their respective ‘rooms’. Hans did not care and led Eznho at the end of the hallway, unlike before, this one had two doors. It was obviously for the father and son. Hans knocked the door on the right and waited for a response. “Come in,” Butchog’s voice came from inside filled with excitement. He opened the door showing a dimly lit room, an incense was producing smoke bringing a strong aroma that was too strong making him wrinkle his nose. A bed was located at the center covered with thin curtains. Butchog’s silhouette was inside holding a cup of wine. Eznho was not moved but from the corner of his eyes, he saw an unmoving naked young girl laying down on the cold floor. It was undetermined if she was dead or alive, this added to Eznho’s anger. This perverted bastard! “Bring her here and tie her up, I want to see how long can she last,” Butchog instructed. Hans brought a rope from the side and tied Eznho’s feet and hands. He then carried ‘her’ and put him down on the bed, it was soft but it smelled weird, a combination of all sorts of smell. If one has a weak stomach, he would vomit. “Good, now bring out that girl and dispose of her, she’s too boring,” He gulped down his wine then threw the cup on the floor. Hans was used to this scene so he was not disturbed at all, carrying the girl, he closed the door and left the two in inside the room. “Let’s start the party shall we,” Butchog spoke with great enthusiasm and showed a disgusting face. He rolled over with his fat body and sat on top of Eznho’s stomach. Sweat and oily secretions were coming out of his body fold giving him a sickening look. “Yehahaha, who’s your daddy now?” Pak! He maniacally laughed then slapped Eznho’s face and put his hand all over Eznho’s body making him tremble in humiliation. “Come on, show me more! Show me that feisty attitude of yours, hahaha.” He continued to do the same things and kept on slapping Eznho. Eznho, on the other hand, was trying his best to suppress his rage. He was waiting for time to pass by and estimated when Hans would exit the basement. His eyes were already becoming red. “Yehahaha, that’s more I like it, what I want most is taming wild little girls like you,” Butchog seemed to be in a trance and his face looked like he was in ecstasy, he even started to drool. Damn it all! Eznho could not contain it any longer and circulated his energy in full force breaking the formation immediately, revealing his true appearance. “Eh?” Butchog who was having the time of his life was jolted back to reality. The girl he was intoxicated with suddenly became a boy. “What the hell? Who are-“ Before he could finish his question, Eznho snapped the ropes and moved his body making Butchog roll on the other side of the bed. He jumped and sat on top of the fat man while making him tremble in fear. “You sick bastard! You are a disease that needs to be irradicated!” “Wai-“ Butchog clung to life but it was no use. Eznho let out his fury then using his left hand he reached out for the jade hairpin holding his hair. Butchog knew what Eznho wanted to do and started to struggle but it was no use. “Burn in hell!” Eznho spoke hoarsely and stabbed the space between Butchog’s clavicle. Blood spurted out when he retracted the hairpin. Butchog’s eyes widened and tried to stop the bleeding with his hands. “Glurrggg!” He wanted to speak but instead of a voice, blood came out of his mouth. Eznho was not yet satisfied, he was still seething with anger so he stabbed the fat man’s body multiple times making blood splash on him. “Haaa, Haaa,” After stabbing the man for more than twenty times, he stopped and looked around. Blood stained the curtains while the bed was soaked with it. Butchog’s wounds were still oozing with blood when he finally calmed down after a while. “Damn, I forgot to ask about the girl,” His mind became clear again and finally remembered his mission. Wait, there is another door on the left. He was feeling frustrated when he remembered that there were two doors. He looked at Butchog’s body again and even spat on it, he was really disgusted. “Serves you right,” He spoke with disdain. A basin of water was on the table so he washed his bloody face, after that, he slowly walked towards the door and tried to listen. He could faintly hear the whimper of the girls but aside from that, there was nothing. He silently opened the door and only saw the dim hallway. Confirming that there was no guard, he walked out the door then closed it again. He then turned and went in front of the other door and slowly opened it. ..... “Hey, Blue? Yohoo! Your knight has come back, are you ready for another round?” Taba was happily walking towards a naked young girl who was tied up on the bedside. Her back and several parts of her body were riddled with scars due to knife wounds, one could only imagine the pain and suffering she felt. “Come on now, don’t be rude and greet your knight in shining armor,” Taba spoke as if he was a husband coming home to his wife, he walked towards the girl and held her chin up. “Look at you, you are more beautiful than ever,” He spoke with sarcasm as he laughed in delight. The face of the young girl was also filled with scars with different sizes. Her face now was far from the young cheerful girl Eznho met a couple of years ago. Her eyes now were lifeless, it was like her soul left her fleshly body. She has been suffering from Taba’s hands ever since they came to Red Sparrow City. Never in her imagination that they would do something like this. At first, she was stubborn and showed resistance, she was hopeful that her father would rescue her. But as time went by, the suffering became unbearable, she could not take it anymore so she just shut her senses and let Taba do whatever he wanted. Every time she was cut, Taba would apply medicine to her wound and the cycle repeated for days. “You’re giving up already? Where is that stubborn attitude of yours? You think you can just reject me? Hmph!” Taba looked at her and shook his head. “Nobody will love you now except me, sigh, too bad, you can’t see how awesome I am. Blue, oh, Blue, if you only accepted my feelings from the start, this would not have happened,” He started walking towards one of the tables and took the knife on top of it. “Are you ready Blue? It’s time for you to feel my love again,” He was walking towards the girl when the door slowly opened. Creak! “Who is it? I told you not to disturb me during my-“ He was dissatisfied with the disturbance but stopped speaking when he saw who opened the door. “Who are-“ Shock and fear overwhelmed him, a boy was standing by the door but he was wearing a pink dress, it was rather comical if not for the blood and the scary look on his face. His eyes were so cold, Taba could feel his body shivering. He could not even recognize Eznho due to panic and pointed his knife towards him. Shouting would do nothing either, the basement was isolated by a formation for privacy reasons. Never could he imagine that this place would be infiltrated. After all, a mid-stage Halo cultivator was guarding outside. “Do-don’t come near me or I-I will kill you!” Despite his cowardice, he tried to show courage when Eznho started walking towards him while he slowly backed-up. “Damn you!” His body was shivering non-stop but he forced himself and actually rushed forward and slashed his knife. Of course, it was no use, Eznho easily dodged sideways and lifted his foot then hit Taba’s stomach with his knee. “Blerggghh!” Taba vomited fluids due to the impact, he let go of his knife while he fell down the floor. His body curled like a shrimp and both his hands were holding his stomach. Eznho just looked at him apathetically then kicked him hard making Taba crash on the table. Bones were broken and his head was bleeding, he was barely hanging onto his consciousness. Eznho shifted his attention to the naked young girl and felt pity, she walked towards her while feeling sorrowful for her. Sigh! “I am here to rescue you, don’t worry you are safe now,” Eznho tried to speak with her and untied the rope, he could see the scar-filled body and face. He could still remember the energetic girl he met years ago, compared to that, the girl in front of him was a puppet. He looked around and saw a fur coat and used it to cover her. “Let’s go, can you walk?” He still tried to initiate communication, to his surprise, the girl slightly nodded. “Okay, let us go,” The girl weakly walked while Eznho assisted her, but a while later she stopped in front of the knife that had fallen earlier and slowly picked it up. Eznho was surprised but did not stop her, he had an idea what she wanted to do. In fact, deep inside he wanted her to do it, it would be a form of release for her. Few people would move on with their lives without obtaining revenge. “Wha-what do you think you’re doing?” Taba weakly spoke while dragging himself away from the girl, she even stumbled in front of him. While down on the floor, she raised her hand and stabbed the knife of Taba’s foot. “Eeyaahh!” Taba squealed like a dying pig. “Huff, huff, you think you can get away with this? You and your families are both dead!” His consciousness was fully awakened due to the pain and even had the time to threaten. To his disappointment, the two people in front of him did not even show a reaction. Blue slowly stood up and moved closer to Taba. “Stay away from me, you bitch!” Taba was scared stiff and he started to sob while snot came out of his nose mixing with his tears and blood. Blue ignored him and sat on top of him, he could not shake her off due to his previous injuries so he was easily subdued by her. A creepy smile formed on Blue’s face and stabbed his shoulder joint and twisted it making him scream in agony. “Pleasssh, stop, I’m sorry, pleassshh stop,” Taba was begging with a pitiful appearance and was still trying to cling to life despite his hopeless situation. Blue ignored his pleadings and pulled out the knife then pointed it at his chest and slowly pushed it making blood flow. She then started to slice Taba’s chest. “Eaahhhh!” Taba could not handle the pain and wailed with great intensity. He continued to cry as more and more wounds were being cut into his skin and face. His cries became hoarse after minutes of screaming. “You miserable pig, no, pigs are even better than you. You are simply a demon in a human form,” Blue started to sob and with all her strength she started to stab Taba’s chest and even his face. It was a gory scene, Eznho who was watching from the side sighed and held the girl’s hand to stop her. “He’s already dead, no need to waste any more effort on him,” He could not deny the fact that the fat kid deserved what he got but stabbing a dead body would only be a waste of energy. She already vented enough and this would at least alleviate the burden she feels. “Please kill me,” Blue continued to sob and looked at Eznho with eyes full of shame and sorrow. One could only imagine what she feels right now, she was tortured and humiliated for days. Eznho’s heart twitched but did not let his emotion get the better out of him. “No, you decide what to do with yourself after we get out of here. I understand how you feel but you still have a family right? I am sure they are waiting for you to come home. No matter what happened to you, they will welcome with open arms, that I am sure,” He tried to console her and got the knife out of her hand while the girl continued to cry. “Let’s go, we don’t have much time,” Blue slowly got up then wobbled and fell down uncontrollably but Eznho caught her in time. She had lost consciousness due to exhaustion, mind and body. He just shook his head and carried her while she was covered with a fur coat.
