It was many moments later. Twenty or so minutes after Tilyhn cut his penis. Cede was barely alive and still lying motionless in bed where she left him.
Where are the fucking bodyguards? He asked himself.
It had been a very long time since Tilyhn left.
They should have caught her already and rushed to his quarters to alert him that she tried to escape as usual. What was delaying them? Or had she managed to actually escape?
If his guards didn’t find him in time he would surely die. There wasn’t much time left. He had lost a lot of blood already.
Everything was slowly becoming blurry and distant in his eyes. He was slowly drifting away into darkness.

Everything went black.
He didn’t hear the shouts of his bodyguards as they entered into his bedroom breathless and found him motionless in a pool of blood. He didn’t hear them carrying him as fast as they could across to the far side of his ship to the fully equipped and operational first class clinic aboard the Lilzaint staffed with ten very skilled alien doctors of different races money could buy.
An hour later Cede had regained consciousness. His back was hurting though – he had been lying on it for a while and it was complaining. He shifted a little trying to ease the ache on his back. Unimaginable pain seared throughout his entire body.
He shouted an...
