The injury he caused to miss Bouchard watered her eyes and caused visible panic, but didn´t really have the expected effect on her friend. Did he misjudge the nature of their relationship or was this murderer so calloused he didn´t mind seeing his friend suffer?
Either way, it was too late to change his plans now. And as it turned out a moment later his strategy wasn´t without any effect as Theodore dropped the knife previously used by Nellie in her attempt for self-defense.
“But of course, prison, the magical land where everyone is innocent am I right?”
He asked with such a great amount of sarcasm in his voice that it seemed inevitable, that another harm will come in his hostage´s way, especially as the blade of his sword gently pressed against her neck again. But surprisingly this time, Michael didn´t cut mainly, because to his honest surprise it didn´t seem that the “murderer” was lying.
“Well, if that´s the case, I am sure you will be very interested in the fact that since your arrival to the capital city, two women were murdered.”
He continued in his questioning, looking for even the smallest hints of shock and surprise in his eyes, or any other emotional reaction to this statement.
“One died just the day after you arrived and another one a few days after that. Both killed the same way you murdered your first victim. Well, at least according to your file.”
He smiled, revealing the source of information he had about this man together with the reason behind them all being in this disgusting room together.
“Because you have to admit, if you are as innocent as you claim to be, it would be a very interesting coincidence. One, that I am inclined to not believe.”
