“Who are you?”

“Where am I?” An agitated Jason Collins shouts.

He’s blindfolded and tied down to a chair. His hands clammy and his wrists aching from the rope tightly gripping them together.

“I hear you, I can hear you breathing. I can hear your footsteps!” he shouts once more. Meanwhile struggling to get loose.

His heart beats increasingly rapid—there’s a knot in his throat that’s tough to swallow. He panics and turns his head left and right; his attempt to free himself is in vain.

He hears footsteps on what he assumes is a wooden old floor. Jason calms himself down—at least he tries to. He needs to hear the footsteps, he needs to hear his assailant approaching him slowly.

Jason hears someone chuckling. A woman! Is the only clue he manages to detect from this unknown individual. But who? He wonders. And what do they want?

“Listen, I don’t know what you want but please, take my wallet. You won’t find much in there but just take it. Okay?”, he says out of breath.

“And take my car!” he adds. But where is his car? The last thing he recalls is getting inside his car and passing out. He was on his way to Stacy’s house.

“You fool”, the mystery woman says. Jason can hear her pacing around him.

“What do you want from me?” he cries. He’s afraid and he should be.

“I want what you took from me”, she softly says.

“Carlin”? at last, he recognizes the voice. It’s coming from the girl he has been seeing for the past three months. The woman who he led to believe so many lies.

“Carlin, what are you doing?” he asks—worried and confused.

“You lied to me, Jason. You lied to me, when you shouldn’t have”, she replies.

“No, wait, what are you talking about?” Jason’s attempt at playing stupid backfires.

“I was fine before I met you. I believed your intentions were pure. I gave you my untouched body and I gave you my heart”, she continues.

“But I can only get one of those things back”, she concludes while letting out a laugh. A dark one, indeed.

“Carlin, wait, I’m sorry. Just let me loose and we’ll talk about it. Okay?” a paranoid Jason frets.

“No, I’m done listening to you. You should’ve known better than to cross me”, she says.

Carlin spreads her legs open and sits on Jason’s lap while facing him. He gets startled—still trying to swallow that knot in his throat.

She removes his blindfold and stares into his dark hazel eyes.

“Carlin, I’m sorry, Stacy means nothing to me. Please don’t hurt me”, Jason pleads. His face is smudged from fear.

“I’m assuming that is what you have told her, as well. But you see, baby, an eye for an eye and a heart for a heart!” Carlin’s ire is palpable. Jason witnesses her fiery red eyes—bright red and orangey eyes looking straight at him.

He is petrified and beyond frightened. What he feels now is the inevitable outcome of his fate.

“What are you?” he whispers. Deeply disturbed by the sight of her eyes.

“They say I am the devil itself. But I say I’m just a woman scorned!” Carlin screams and rips Jason’s beating heart out of him.

She holds this palpitating organ in her hand. Bloodied but now satisfied; she takes a bite out of it.

She stares at Jason’s lifeless corpse with a bloody mouth, and whispers: “Now we’re even”.
