She pulled out the scoop from her other pocket, hand shaking slightly. Akeldama had done this to Theo, the one who had tried to stand up to her. It shouldn’t be so hard to do it to this man.
The raven haired girl had to do it if she was going to make any headway in this new group she was in. Ambrosia was a neglectful master that did not take much effort to watch her… And this was a good thing. It gave her chances such as this to get in better with other members of this guild.
Her treatment did not have to solely rely on her true master’s mood if she got in good enough with the other people. She had to impress him. Slowly Akeldama padded towards the man. “Remember me?” She asked softly, attempting to almost growl the word but failing utterly at it. Instead she sounded like some shy school girl who was mad at a bully, but afraid to really show it.
Iris was so calm about all this. Not only that, he was smiling. Could he really be so excited to see this? Was he just as sadistic as Veve? Maybe… Maybe she ought try putting on a show for him.
The old man looked at the three Iris’ and then Akeldama. “I… How did you get here?”
Akeldama shrugged. “Doesn’t matter… What does matter is that those eyes of yours would look a lot better if they weren’t in your skull.” The raven haired girl glanced at Iris for a moment, trying to glean whether or not he had found her joke amusing. Which one was the real one?
“Hold still now… Lest we take more than your eyes.” Akeldama purred darkly. She would see if she had questions once she actually got in there. Akeldama pulled his tightly clenched eyelids open, slowly bringing the rusted eye scooper towards his orange orbs. Really milking it. He was frantic, begging. But since when did begging matter to him? “If you think that’d change anything… Funny. It didn’t change anything for me… Why should it for you?”
All dregs of mercy drained from her as she moved forward, scooping out the first eye…. It was a bit messy of course. The cord was harder to sever than she knew how to deal with, so the nerve was a bit frayed.
Akedama wiped away some of the blood from her face, only succeeding in smearing it onto the thin layer of dirt that was already there. “H-how was that?” There was still one more to go, but she didn't want to continue until she got Iris' input. If she was going to do this and try and impress him by it, she might as well get it right.
