WARNINGS: GORE. VIOLENCE. DARK THEMES. SEXUAL VIOLENCE. CHILD DEATH. ALLUSIONS TO RAPE. DISMEMBERMENT. MURDER. TORTURE. THIS IS NOT A PRETTY LOG.


Sunsreach City, Inner Ward
Early Morning, Septebre 29, 1866

The body hangs in the intersection of two busy streets as the sun rises and shines. The body was a woman, once. Now she is barely recognizable, hanging by the throat from a rope outside one of the windows, displayed to the world.

She is nude, and blood-splattered. And she had been dead before the noose had looped around her neck. She is missing fingers and toes; and her entire left foot and part of her right hand.

From the bruising on her body, she had been abused and tortured for some time before her death. Bruising on her breasts, her sides, her throat, her thighs. Her face is mostly clear of damage— and perhaps it is so she is recognized. Besides her appendages, other, more intimate parts had been removed as well.

The body horrifies those wakening and beginning their day, first thing in the morning. The body draws so much attention that the other part of the gruesome display is almost missed.

A young girl, perhaps eight years old. In counterpoiint to the woman's nudity, the young girl's body has been dressed in a dress of green and golden yellow that would suit any little girl of that age. A paper crown has been dropped on her golden head.

And her hands and feet have been removed, ever so nicely, and stitched back neatly. And her throat slit, her eyes left open, staring at nothing. She sits primly on the ground underneath her mother's displayed corpse.

There is no note. There is no message.

The bodies are a message themselves.
