I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X: the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

For a month I have listened to the beeping of the machine keeping me alive. The constant sound is a painful reminder that I’m still here in this world. That everything they’ve done to me was real. That I’m really in a hospital, lying in a stone-cold bed, watching the world pass me by. I’m constantly in pain. My face burns and itches, but I can’t scratch. A bandage covers everything. I’ll never get used to this.
I’d prefer death over this place, because if there’s a hell on earth, it’s right here.

The doctors tell me it could take years to recover, but I don’t allow myself that much time. Even with only one eye I will make it work, somehow. I will recover quickly and reclaim what’s been taken from me: my dignity.
Today is the day they take off my bandage. The careful unwrapping makes me furious, because I’d much rather rip it off and be done with it. I want to see what’s happened. I want to see what those fuckers did to my face. When he’s finally done, I pick up the mirror on my cabinet and hold it in front of me. Terror flows through me, an inferno of rage setting my veins on fire. My eye is gone, my face destroyed. What’s left is a vicious remnant of their attack. Loose skin and horrid scars running all the way up to my skull. My hair is split in half as it no longer grows on the burned skin. All that’s left is ruin and misery.
I’ve become a monster.
I was burned to ashes, along with my soul, but I will rise and make them pay.

It’ll take some time to get used to the fake eye they just installed. I keep looking at it in the mirror. Somehow it looks like I’m staring at a completely different person. Not just physically, but mentally too. I’ve changed. Not for the better.
I got into contact with an old partner of mine, who I know through my family: Antonio. He told me he could introduce me to the organization he works for. I’ll be an assassin for hire with them. I’ve already said I’ll do it. I want them to train me, teach me how to kill an assassin just like me. They’ll train me for years to come and I’ll earn some good money working for them. But I won’t stop until I’m the fastest, most skillful killer alive. And then I’ll murder them all.

I smash the mirror to bits.
Over and over again until there is nothing left and blood seeps from my pores. I don’t feel any pain, just anger. I am wasting valuable time here. After I interrogated Al, I thought about killing the one who’s behind all this. However, I decided not to. Instead, I want to make his life miserable. And I just happen to have the perfect idea …
“What’s happening in there?” Jay yells.
I grab the trashcan and shove the pieces of the mirror inside. Then I walk out the door and show her my bloody hands. Her eyes widen.
“See this? It’s because you took the tape off the mirror,” I say.
She makes a face, riddled with guilt. Good. Guilt is the first step toward pleasing someone, and I want to be pleased badly.
“It’s quite despicable to make a man see his own scars.”
“It’s also quite despicable for you to keep me tied up.”
I smile. “Touché.”
“Even though you said I would gain more freedom if I did what you asked.”
I walk back into the bathroom and rinse my hands under the water. I think about it for a second. If I give her a reason to be more grateful and content, she might be easier to handle, which is a plus considering what I’m going to do when I have my plan ready.
I step out of the bathroom and stand in front of the bed. “All right. If you will behave I will take you to lunch.”
She tempts me with those daring eyes of hers. Crawling onto the bed, I move on top of her. Her breath falters as my lips touch her belly. My tongue darts out to trace a line all the way up to her chest. Her chest rises but doesn’t fall as I reach her tits. She’s wearing nothing but panties, and although I would love to ravage her right now, a promise is a promise. Besides, I’m getting quite hungry myself.
I raise my head to her eyelevel and lean in, licking my lip. Her eyes follow my tongue desperately. I wait, tentatively moving closer and closer, until my lips are on top of hers. My kiss is greedy, because I need to taste her. Her mouth is open, ready to receive me. Not long ago she refused to give me what was mine, but now … now she is ready. She lets my tongue in as I probe her mouth with eagerness. I lick the roof of her mouth and kiss her harder, my cock growing equally as hard.
A growling stomach interrupts us. I take my lips off hers and look into her eyes, which fill with confusion. Her desires are showing, and she hates it. A cocky smile forms on my face. I love to see it all. But then another growl follows. I’m not sure which of us it was, but it’s definitely time to grab something to eat.
Oh well, I’ll fill up her pussy some other time.
