Exodus 22:18, “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.”
Candice knew it was going to be bad. Her sisters having already fallen into the torturous clutches of these vile witch hunters, she was the last surviving member of her coven.
When they’d finally caught her, as the coven’s high priestess, Candice’s interrogation was utterly ruthless. No torture considered too extreme to compel her confession. Now, sentenced to die in the morning, she’s destined share the horrifying fate of her sisters and burn at the stake.
However, tonight is a different matter. Tonight, having finally gained Candice’s confession, they plan to continue brutally torturing her merely for their sadistic enjoyment, and should she die during her obscenely painful ordeal, they’ll still burn her corpse at the stake in the morning.
