“So you have no idea who it was that came at you from behind?” he asked, though he had asked before and knew the answer.

“No,” she repeated. “I don’t. I have nothing to tell them.”

“Hmm perhaps it would have been better,” he murmured in her ear. “It could have saved you.”

Confused, she looked up at him, trying to unravel his words, when he produced a small knife, his eyes glimmering with a dangerous edge.
