From tattered, filthy garments… miasma of her diseased body exudes… dried blood and remnants of past meals a diorama on corpulent, greyish-pink breasts more exposed than concealed.
Scabrous-nailed… greasy fingers clamp ‘round the furred creature’s quivering limbs.
Rabbit… its tiny, beating heart… terror echoes across the dank bedchamber.
“Wouldst thou have me languish from hunger, Monsieur Lapin?” Rotting, half-toothed maw gapes… grinning evil.
Blood-curdling squeals of the dying creature… sound of bones snapping… muscle and sinew tearing as the bitch-mother… sadistic vivisector… separates limbs from torso… freshets of blood spraying the soiled bedclothes.
Crimson drips… gristle hangs from lips…
