The bonds were painfully wound tightly around his upper arms and chest, holding him upright, while another set of ropes bound his wrists behind the chair and ankles to the legs of the chair. He groaned behind the bandana tied tightly around his mouth, silencing his voice.

“Good news, boy. We’ve decided to give you someone to keep you company.” He gestured behind him and the young boy’s eyes widened in fear of who had been brought in.
