She’s been pushing so hard on the ties that got her hands bleeding. Her throats is aching from the long and heavy cries. The hard platform of stone pushes against her bare back. The cold water that she was washed with still burns her flesh. They have covered her with a blanket of cloth. Too shocked to see the many grooves all over her body that she gave herself with a sewing needle. The third sister was never sane, but she wasn’t too mad to commit such a terrible act. She suffers with the pain of her sister's deaths. They never did her wrong. She loved them as they cared for her until she witnessed their degeneration. The man who always visited their home, the one who poured the holy water down on her, his prayers to get her sanity back was nothing but a trick to cover a dirty job. He romanced her sisters in the basement of their house, where it no more smells with the odor of their nasty job. She made sure that they felt but a quick pain. A stab right inside the heart. She imagined every stab that she would give the father for his sins when she was cutting through their flesh. People found the bodies in the basement of their house and they had no faces, only a bunch of bones and split flesh that looked like someone has used a big hammer to break them into pieces. A brutal murder, act of an unsound mind. People described it as a never-seen. Pieces were everywhere. Smashed and ripped as hard as they couldn’t put them back together for burial. Elle is a mad girl no doubt. She suffers mental disorder since her birth. She'd be crazy enough to cut herself on purpose, but never mad as a wolf to murder her own sisters in the worst possible way. The only excuse that they thought of was evil possession. Even the father knew nothing about her motives until he got alone with her. And Elle yelled out everything she saw with him and her sisters. The moment when the father, the trustworthy man of the town who everyone goes to for almost all of their problems, realized how terrible his act of fantasies over the two gentle sisters has turned out, he had to think of a new trick to cover it up. If Elle spewed a word about him, the people would burn him at a stake. Even excusing her unstable mind and manners wouldn’t help much. He had to think something up in the meantime. As evil had nothing to do with Elle, another attempt to expel the evil from her would fail again. He is not in a state to request help from the god he worships only when it is most needed. So he makes up his mind and walks among the people with a troubled look. People ask him about the poor girl of their village. He lifts his sad frown and gives a low moan of despair. "We failed to expel the demon from her. The means of god were always able to save the soul that was possessed by the evil spirit. But at this point we failed. Which only means one thing." He said with regret. People looked and gave their ears to know from the holy man. "Good people of the Grey village, I fear that the problem with Elle is beyond our abilities to deal with. We all knew these sisters for a long time. I warned her sisters that evil has took a liking to this girl. The two but too kindly insisted to take care of her. Today we see the outcome of their carelessness, which was a mistake of their kind hearts that Elle savagely ripped apart. You saw with your eyes that evil appeared himself in this girl. Now there’s left but one choice." He said and let the people go on with their opinions. Voices rise and all of them have the same say, to burn her and the evil inside her away. The father joys as they come up with the decision of his desire. He frowns back and makes an upset tone to speak. "It pains me to remember this day. But evil must leave this village and people! Prepare the stake." He said.
