At least being tied to the St. Andrew’s Cross wasn’t as hard as being tortured by bastinado. Of that, Alex was absolutely sure trying to make himself ready for the next part of his punishment. His master hadn’t yet told him what that would be, but he was sure it was going to test him to his very core.
“Let’s get started with the final two parts of your punishment.”
“Two parts?” Alex asked, narrowing his eyes.
“Well, it can be one part, but I like to give a little bonus for something truly… painful. It keeps things interesting,” the man said and started to torture Alex by electricity in the most sensitive body parts.
When the man finished, he asked Alex for more.
“I like to offer a little bonus to guys who do such a good job. So if you want to earn thirty percent more, you’ll have that opportunity.”
“What do I have to do?”
“It’s not torture this time. More humiliation.”
