_______________________________________________________________________________________ Shouting is heard as several women are being marched through a village. They are convicted of using witch craft or being possessed by the devil. As they walk, people began to throw food and other objects at them and to shout curse words at them. Their faces are covered with a blindfold so that who ever is sentencing their fate will not see their expressions. They are soon taking to an old stone bridge. Their blind folds are taken off and a rope is placed around each one of their necks. A crowd begins to form around the bridge, some of them are crying while other people in the crowd are shouting and yelling. All of the women except one are crying, for they know they are innocent, but there is no way of convincing them that they are. "Before they ceromony begins, would any of you like to confess of your sins? To be spared of your fate?"A priest asks. All of the women begin to nod except one. "Yes! Yes! I made a contract with the devil!" One says as tears continue to flow down her face. "I made an ointment from boar's fat and nothing more to give to my sick grandfather!"Another says as she sniffs. "I also made a contract with the devil! Please! Please spare me!" Another says with tears in her eyes. "And I too! But please please spare me!"The fourth women says as tears well up. The last women is quiet, she had no clue why they were convicting her of being possessed. What they had said she had done, she had no recollections of such things. The priest then nods and then looks at the heavily armored men. "Do it, procede with the ceromony," He says. The men nod and go to grab one of the girls. "Wait! I thought you were going to spare us! No!" The girl that was grabbed says. "Your soul will be spared, but god has to make judgement on your body," he says as he signals the men. The men then throw her over the side of the bridge and she is hung. They then grab another girl and throw her over the side of the bridge, her fate the same. Then the second, third and fourth and their fates are all the same. Then they go to grab the last women. She begins fight them and pushes the men off of her. "You priest, you're going to burn in hell along with all the rest of these women." She says "Grab her! Grab her now!"The priest orders. The men go to grab her and she grabs their swords and stabs both men and then looks at the priest. "You'll pay for what you've done, priest!" She snaps. It had seemed as if she was a different person. She plunges the one sword through the priest's body. Then she bows her head as if she was praying and then gasps as she looks around. "What did I do?" She says. Then she runs away. ____________________________________________________________________________ That was several months ago, Selena wasn't a witch or possessed by the devil, she simply had a split persona. She did feel pitty for those who were tried and were innocent. But she did began to hate all of mankind because they had captured and tried her mother and killed her for she had the same mental disorder. She had been on the run from every other village because they kept trying her as being possessed. The village she was in now, she tried to keep to herself. She has been in this village for three days now and nothing has happened yet. She didn't plan on staying in this village too long either. As she was walking toward an inn that she was staying in, a man comes up to her. "Hey pretty girl wanna have some fun?" he asks with a up to no good smirk on his face. He gets closer and begins to touch her every where. Men can be such pigs! She thinks. She tries her best to stop him and continue on her way. But the man wouldn't give up. She tried once more to stop him, so that she could go on her way, but it was no use. Finally she gave up trying and tried to run away. The man grabs her by the wrist and tries to begin to force himself on her. "I said you want to have fun?" He snaps. Selena bows her head and goes limp and then gets a smirk on her face. "Sure, we can have some fun." She says as she punches the guy in the face and then kicks him in the stomach. And then stabbs him with a dagger, she wanted to make sure that he wouldn't hurt another woman ever again. She then goes limp again and goes back to being her normal self. Of course many people saw this. They began to scream and shout that she was either possessed or curse. She then took off running, trying to get away. But it was no use, she was the scooped up by two strong men. A preist came up to her. "So youre the one who had been causing these murders." he says. Selena then spits in his face. She despised all people, but men who called themselves "holy men"even more. The priest frowned, "Take her to the dungeon! Later on we will decide her fate." He says. The men nod and drag her off to a large dark dangy and dank dungeon. They shove her in a cell and lock the door. That was several days ago, now. She is sitting in the back of the cell they put her in. She was glad that they didn't bother her any more, before today they would come in and abuse her. Just then the door to the dungeon opened and two figures walked in.
