And I Must Scream

Title: And I Must Scream
Author: fullmetal_cute
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I own nothing
Characters/Pairings: Emplate/Penance
Table/Prompt: Table 1/12. Silence
Word Count: 159
Summary: He’s taken everything away from her, and she can’t do anything.
Warnings/Spoilers: At this point? This should HARDLY be a spoiler.

She wants to scream, but she can’t. He has taken even that from her. She claws at her skin as if that will free her, but the very sharpness that denies her the most basic human contact does not cut her loose.

She can hear him laughing in the silence that surrounds her. She can feel him on her skin, coating her skin like slime that won’t wash away.

She can’t even cry. He took that away, too.

And now she is even denied the brief oblivion his feeding granted her.

A line from a book kept coming back to her, over and over. I have no mouth, and I must scream.
