Small one was sent back to rebel unit somewhere to the east in exchange for leader’s surrender. Hope local Killjoys give up soon, so can move on. Don’t like desert. Too dry, makes skin itchy.
Torture resumes on large one. Makes most amusing scream when jabbed in liver with knife. Is definitely a bleeder, though. Will have to lay down dropcloth if decide to continue with brute force. Switched to water for rest of session, makes less of a mess. Even remembered rubber glove this time, so did not short out left hand again. Korse will be pleased that am improving in torture technique.
