Her world died the moment his began and, in that bastard moment of creation, she knew exactly the fate that was to be hers and the toll it would also take upon his system as well. There was a grim satisfaction in it, a balance the like of which Yin and Yang were designed for.
Her stigmata poured red, visceral life onto the floor and she saw it lapped up eagerly by tongues of rock and stone, each smooth surface steadily drinking it in with no rush at all, no care as to the pain etched onto her face or the gentle tearing of her skin that happened each time she breathed.
She remembered the deliberate way in which he had chosen each stake and placed it almost lovingly in place on her body. He took the time to take in the sight, sliding the wooden phallus along her skin until it reached a pulse point, whereupon he hammered it home in a crimson burst of joy and agony. It was only the first one that was rushed and fumbled, trying as he was to subdue her before she could clear her eyes from the burst of sunlight he had reflected into them.
The rest? The rest he took his time over, bleeding her undead form as slowly as he possibly could, making her feel every death, every soul she had consumed in wet spurts of pain.
