A/N – I’m incorporating two challenges into this
part of the story. @kittenofdoomage’s
Classic Movie Challenge and @winchesterprincessbride’s 800 Follower
Celebration. My prompt for Rhi’s
challenge was “I mean, funny, like I’m a clown? I amuse you?” from the movie
Goodfellas. My prompt from Jen’s
challenge was the lyric “Well I’ve never prayed, but tonight I’m on my knees,
yeah.” From The Verve, Bittersweet Symphony.
Thanks Rhi for doing your challenge, and congrats again to Jen for
hitting 800 well-deserved followers! You
all should go follow both of these lovely ladies if you’re not already!
As always, feedback is appreciated! Please let me know if you’d like added or removed from the tags list.

metal table, panting. He leaned forward
and pressed around the spot on your right shoulder where electrical tape was
keeping the end of a frayed wire tightly to your skin. Another wire was attached to your left ankle
in the same manner. Gently, his fingers
peeled back the tape, revealing angry red and blistered skin around the site of
the electrical burn.
