Seok’s hand snapped out, catching me by the throat. His long fingers wrapped almost twice around my neck as he lifted me off my feet to stare into my face. “The Vivi Zant Human.” His grip tightened until I felt my heart punching beats inside my chest. My fingers pried at his boney hand as the pressure in my head mounted.
Yeah, I should have let him kill me right there, but in moments of mortality, the will to live usually overrides everything the brain reasons.
Yes, Vivi is in deep trouble. Perhaps a bit more serious than the routine day-to-day trouble she stumbles into. It will take a lot of effort for her to get out of this one!
