Title : No more shining armour
Word count : 167

Schuldig whimpered as yet another whip stroke lashed across his back. He’d lost count as to how many he had received by now and he thought that maybe he was better off not knowing as well. He could only wish that he would pass out soon enough. Rosenkreuz didn’t take betrayal lightly and that was exactly what he had done.

“What were you thinking Schuldig? Did you honestly think that someone would come and save you? There’s no such thing as a knight in shining armour.”

Schuldig closed his eyes. He had been sure that someone would come to get him out of here, would give him as much freedom as he could ever have. He had acted on that belief, yet nobody had come. And now he was paying for it.

He didn’t notice that after he passed out, his executioner went to his office and signed the papers to get the body of Brad Crawford shipped to the last of his relatives in the US.
