Pressed against the cold stone ground, the dark haired girl began to cough up blood. Slowly Sayomi raised to her hands and knees, still coughing out blood. She had been caught trying to escape again. With the crack of a whip, she fell to the stone once more. She did not cry out. She just let it happen, tears of pain rolling down her cheeks. She wasn't going to give up. She wanted to go home. She was pulled up by her hair, a man's face shoved into her's "Am I going to catch you trying to escape again? Well am I?" You held at her, spit hitting her smooth skin. "N-no sir." Sayomi studdered to the dungeon guard. "I find that hard to believe!" He yelled again as he threw her against the wall. "we have caught you trying to escape at least once every couple of weeks. I don't think right now is going to be any different!" He came over and hit her across her face, causing the young women to slide down the wall slightly, she could feel her cheek and eye begin to swell. "If it was up to me, girl, you would be dead. I would have just cut my losses and killed you." He picked her up by her hair again "If you get caught one more time, I might just kill you and say that it was an accident." He whispered in her ear. He threw her out of the room harshly, ordering her to go upstairs, clean up, and start breakfast. Sayomi ran out for the dungeon, and into the kitchen, holding back the tears of pain and sorrow. She wasn't going to let anyone see her cry. She went to the sink and began to wash herself up. Cleaning the blood from her face and body as best as she could. The men were watching as she took her dress off, and began to clean it, before the blood stained it. She felt a warm rag be pressed to her bloody back, causing her to jump. She looked back, only to see another one of the maids helping to clean her back. "Thank you Mia..." She said softly, an accent strong on her voice. The girl helped to clean the wounds, and stop the bleeding "Sai, you need to stop trying to run. It is not so bad here. It would be better if you didn't keep trying to escape, and the guards always watching you, and you always getting hurt. Please. Just accept your fate." The young girl told her as she stepped back, and Sayomi put her clothes back on, then without stopping, began to start making breakfast. "Mia, I cannot do that. I don't want to stay here. I have a family, a life. I cannot stay here. They need me. Somewhere you have a family too!" She said as she turned to look at the maid. She was not going to accept this has her fate.
