The leader lifted his neck with the front edge of his shoe, but Estern couldn’t do anything; the pain was getting unbearable. “Your wife will be very pleased to watch you beg for her life in front of me, won’t she?”
Estern was on his feet now, his head slightly bent downward forcefully. “You just have to get some information for me, not a tough task in exchange of your wife, isn’t it? I will give you company for that, personally I may come with you to get that information.”
“If you…” Estern was taking short breaths, “are so powerful, why don’t you… get it yourself? What do… we have to do with all this!?
“Interesting question, I must say” The leader said, stroking his thin black beard. “I can do anything, even burn you to ashes after this question, but am I doing it? No, because it won’t gain me anything. You have to get it for me, because I decide it!
“I need to ask you one thing?” The leader looked in Estern’s eyes. “You know any man that was called by the name of ‘Psycho Prophet’? Well, he was killed two decades ago. Do you want to know how he was killed?”
But Estern didn’t respond. Only if he could get out this unbreakable magic, he would be able to able to beat this bastard!
“Too bad you aren’t interested. But you ought to know. He was just a philosopher, with an aim to enlighten the world, and when he illuminated the world, the darkness in the world swallowed him. He was an Idiot!
“People named him “Psycho Prophet”, for he said that there was a way to get closer to God, but people’s stomach couldn’t digest it. Other than chanting his name, and doing those rubbish rituals, they found his idea complete nonsense. He was humiliated in the public, and beaten on the roads. He was just a pile of garbage who kept ranting about his philosophy. His child was bullied at school, he had to sit on the ground, and classmates tore his notebook. You know what they called him ‘Psycho’s son’
“His wife couldn’t take it, you know, being treated like a jinx, so she abandoned him. You know what he did that night? He killed himself in front of his son’s eyes”
Estern gathered the strength to look him in the eyes, “What the heck does this have to do with me and my wife? What have we done to you!?”
But the leader seemed to ignore his screams, and went on without another look at him. “His grave is still there, under his house, and I want you to dig out his body.” Estern looked at him in disgust. The leader’s eyesbrows were arched as he curled his lips and continued with the same horrible smirk. “You know one thing he said correct, that there was another way to get closer to god, but he forgot to mention that the only way was to be GOD himself!”
