Ling Chi

The bulb flickered as he stood over his soon to be victim. The room stanched of blood but it didn’t bother him. He stared at the face of the naked man, tied to a chair in front of him in utter disgust. People like him made him sick to his stomach, which is why he got into this in the first place. To vent out all the hatred he felt. His fists clenched and his brows tightened.

“Wake the F*** up” he whispered into the ear of the man as his punch connected as hard as it could with the detainee.

There was a muffled scream as the man slowly opened his eyes but before his eyes could get used to the dark another punch connected with his nose. Blood seeped out of his nostrils; surely enough his nose bone had broken.

“Who are you?” the detainee asked in an agonized tone

“Me? Don’t you remember me Jim?” He said as he punched Jim in the abdomen again.

Jim looked up as he spat blood from his mouth. His eyes could see a silhouette in the dark, the shadow of a person he knew so well… “Ray!?” He muttered in surprise but was again silenced by a punch to the face.

“What are you doing? What have I done?” Jim moaned

“Oh nothing, I just hate you” Ray retorted as a sadistic smile ensued across his face.

“But we were friends…”

“Oh the best of friends…” Ray laughed as he took out a scalpel from his pocket.

“What are you doing?”

“Shh…” Ray said with a wicked smile as he pressed the scalpel against Jim’s lips.

Blood dripped drop by drop from Jim’s lips as Ray stared into his eyes. Apparently, he was enjoying the look of fear in the eyes of his victim.

“Tell me Jim, are you familiar with the Chinese “art” of Ling Chi?” Ray asked with a tint of jeer in his voice.

Jim stayed quiet as the scalpel still was pressed against his lips and it was better not to aggregate the pain further.

“Oh no? Well, you see it’s an ancient Chinese torture technique. What they do is take a sharp scalpel such as this” Ray brought the scalpel right in front of Jim’s pupil, “and then they start slowly and precisely cutting at the detained till he either talks or bleeds to a slow painful death. Since, I have no interest in hearing your self obsessed banter… I’m afraid that you’ll have to entertain me in another fashion.” Ray smiled like a maniac as he slowly ran the scalpel down Jim’s cheek, splitting it in two.

The cuts continued and with each scream, the smile on Ray’s face became broader. There was a tinge of happiness in Ray’s eyes similar to that of a child on Christmas day. With each scream his hands moved more artistically as if he was painting on a canvas…


“Hey Ray? Lost somewhere?” Jim snapped his fingers in front of Ray

“Huh? Oh yea…”

“Must have been a happy memory, right?”

“Oh totally… It’s what makes me go on.”

 “Hey guys…” a cheerful voice yelled

“Hey tina…” Ray replied with a broad smile as his mind imagined light from the flickering bulb flashing off the scalpel, as he stared at her tied to a chair…

  1. omg…this is ….utterly… bloody! :s …gave me creeps. Planning a murder lately?

  2. I don’t like blood and gore.., the only thing deep here is the scalpel slicing his cheek open… Yukhhhhhhh … You’ve been on andros blog haven’t you?

  3. This world mostly exploits the people which endure it…. what the world forgets is that there is a limit and it takes only a moment for the gun to fire.
    I have a rather similar desire of punishing “some people” I want to set them on fire and wait and watch them dying and rotting, their screams being silenced as they die ….
    cruel yes ! but I’m just doing it to them all at once which they slowly did to me….

    anyway back to earth 😀
