“Please No. I beg you. Don’t”
“Don’t worry baby. I’m not gonna hurt you. You’ll feel so good. I promise” he said while unzipping his pants.
The hunting knife in his hand and the expressions on his face made the promise sound hollow to Meg’s ears. She looked towards the sky with her tear filled eyes and said a silent prayer.
“Please God. Help me. Kill me if you can’t save me but just save me from this horror”
But all she saw was an eagle soaring in the dusky sky.
The nightmare which had begun 2 hours ago when he had forcibly picked her up on her way back home flashed in front of her eyes. The groping, the threats…everything screamed in the confines of her head. Meg felt so contaminated. So helpless. She shut her eyes in the desperate hope of fading out the scene from her mind.
“Don’t cry baby. You’ll feel heaven between… AArggghhhh”
Meg opened her eyes and saw in amazement a half dead, wounded snake wrapped around his neck. Before Meg could understand what is happening, the snake bared its fangs and bit him on his face.
A blood curdling scream filled the empty sky and the man dropped to his knees clutching the wound at his face.
The snake coiled in front of Meg and hissed aggressively. Just then the eagle dived in at lightning speed and took it away towards the sky.
