"What..?" I look between them at a loss as it starts to seep in, my stomach churning with panic as I sit up to breathe easier. 

"I'm not choosing anything. Wha- Marnin, what did I agree to..?"

"No, no," I repeat it again, the chant leaving me hollow and sick as I try to deny the question. "I'll do it. I'll do it. Ljuba doesn't have to do it."

"Alright then," Richard smiles. "You'll fuck Ljuba."

"NO!" I say quickly, my eyes widening as I shake my head fiercely. "That's not what - no!"

"Make up your minds before I make it up for you," Richard says impatiently, his spoon tapping against his plate as he sits back in his chair in annoyance. "Ljuba. Choose."

"You."

The word leaves me before I even realize I've said it, a sick heave deflating my chest as I look at him through tear-filled eyes.

"NO!" I want to cry as I hit my hand against the table again, the sensation of pain shooting up my arm in a dull kind of way.

"Those are the options, Marnin!" Richard says, clearly taking a sick pleasure in the whole thing. "Either you fuck her or she fucks me."

"No," I whine past the tears, fumbling with my silverware as I try to scoop up a mouthful of the food on my plate, the urge to vomit making me gag before I've even raised it toward my lips. "I'll eat, just-"

"You can eat all you want," Richard sighs. "But Ljuba is still going to lie with one of us tonight. You're welcome to try to convince her to pick you instead."

"Marnin," I frown, a reluctant calm falling over me as I submit to the reality of the situation. It's going to happen. Richard will win, because there's no other option. Just trying to defy him has left us both beaten and bloodied. "Marnin, stop. I'll do it, I- Just stop."

I try once more to raise the spoon to my lips, the bile rising in my throat before I drop the spoon and shake my head bitterly. I can only imagine how ugly my expression must be as I drop my forehead on the edge of the table for a moment before pushing back in my chair roughly.

"I don't want to be there then," I breathe, my insides clenching with guilt at even thinking of leaving her alone with him, but I can't stand the idea of hearing them together.

"Oh, you'll be there," Richard laughs. "We'll all be there. That's non-negotiable. Who knows, maybe I'll even let you participate, if I'm feeling charitable."

"No," I shake my head roughly, looking at Richard with a pleading frown. "You said I got to choose, I didn't choose him!"

"Fair enough," Richard smirks as he takes a sip of his wine and then gets up, taking care to button his suit jacket as he does. "There's plenty of fun to be had later. And frankly I'm afraid he'll bleed on the sheets if we let him on the bed with us."

My heart races painfully as I look up at Richard, Marnin's frantic state quashing any urge I may have had to be disobedient. Instead, I wait, with my head down, for Richard to ask me to stand, unable to even look at Marnin as I hear the faint sound of his sniffling.

Richard straightens his suit carefully before he holds an arm out to Ljuba, helping her to her feet in a show of courtesy. The illusion doesn't last long, of course, when he glances at me and makes a disgusted face before waving her over toward me.

"Help him," he says with a tedious sigh. "Try not to let him bleed on you. The nurse can patch him up once we're back in the room... speaking of, where is she??" He glances at his phone impatiently and then pauses as he looks back at the table. My heart sinks as he lets out a laugh. "Oh, right. I forgot. No matter, I'll get another one."

I cringe at his realization, limping hesitantly around the table as I come to Marnin's side. He rises on his own, and I'm unable to look at him as I loop my arm around his. 

"Are you okay?" I ask quietly.

"Are you sure you want to do this?" I ask as I put my hand on hers in the crook of my elbow. "With him?"

"He's already a monster," I whisper up to him, turning my head towards him to ensure Richard doesn't overhear. "I won't let him turn you into one, too."

"I hate this," I breathe as I squeeze her hand anxiously while we walk. "The only devils we were supposed to face out here was Gatz. I never meant for you to ever get tangled up with Richard."

"It's not your fault," I frown up to him, my fingers lacing in his as we follow Richard up towards his suite.

"Isn't it?" I breathe, trying not to stall as Richard stops at the bedroom door to wait for us to catch up. "I should have put an end to this years ago."

"No," I frown more harshly, "You couldn't have known this would happen, stop blaming yourself."

"Enough talking," Richard scowls, gesturing impatiently for us to hurry up.

I grimace at Richard's scolding, Marnin and I managing to somehow brace ourselves against each other as we make it to the door into Richard's bedroom.

"We weren't." I scowl lightly.

I flinch even before Richard lashes out to slap her across the face, his hand going to grab her hair as he jerks her from me. I stumble, my grip on her arm tightening as he drags her into the room behind him.

"Richard," I yelp as he throws Ljuba against the edge of the bed, my failure to let go dragging me along behind her.

The pain in my leg burns as I skid into my knees, gripping the edge of the bed as I come out of my shoes.

"You know something-" I start, easing myself into the floor as I rub at my leg gingerly, "You're not scary anymore, Richard. You're a monster, a vile human, but you're not scaring me anymore."

"Ljuba, don't!" I hiss fearfully as I cringe at her side. Richard only laughs at her as he nods toward me.

"I think Marnin is plenty afraid for you," he smiles before he reaches down to pull me away from her. "Go sit - and don't interfere!"

I watch as Marnin is pulled away from me, tensing as Richard shoves him off towards the couch near the window.

"Find a nurse for his arms," I plead, "They need attention."

"Do they?" Richard asks as he raises an eyebrow toward me. "Hm, guess he shouldn't have sliced himself up."

"Will you please-" I whine, shrinking against the foot of the bed.
