    “Don’t fucking do this,” he pleads with her, straight-backed, head high, the glow strange against the cherry stitching on the torn-up rags hanging form his shoulders. “Don’t.”

    “Do you think you’re the first to beg for your life?” she asks him, rolls her eyes. She doesn’t laugh at him, at this red-eyed man who doesn’t so much as duck his head, never mind bow. “How silly.”

    “Not for my life, you bucket-headed bitch,” he snaps, tugging against his chains towards her. The crowd below squeaks in horror. “You’re going to regret this for the rest of your life, don’t you understand? This is your chance, you could change all this asslicking beastshit, you could be –”

    “You dare!” She raises her hand; the guard’s slap echoes louder than either of their voices. He shakes his head, dizzy, straightens to stare at her. The seconds pass. One, two, three. “Why would I?” she spits. “Why are you stupid enough to think I might?”

    “Because you could be different!” he snarls, craning forwards. “You don’t do all this without ever fucking thinking twice about it, you aren’t heartless, you could be so much more!”

    “I know you.” The word he uses, one of a dozen words for know, is an ancient one, ancient and absolute – it means knowing down to the bone, down to the details of a slimeless nightmare, down to fears and embarrassments and pathetic absurd wishes. It’s pale as pale. The gasping of the crowd is starting to sound like the sea.

    The empress gapes.

    “I know you,” he repeats.
