Valeska felt the prison closing in on her as her skin turned black and cracked, something that should cause immense pain if she had felt any at all anymore. Though the truth was, she had lost all feeling even before she crawled her way back into the palace, the moment the saber crossed into her core she knew that was to be it for this body, all hope of saving it was gone.
As the moments continued on he could sense her fear, her need for urgency. She had the power to save herself, but she was entirely powerless in this state, nothing she could do this was would make any difference, and her life was in his hands, she had waited too long. Please, don't take too long.
