The older woman approached Azriel with a full cup while the kindly younger one remained with Nikos. Then he listened to Azriel gulping and slurping down his wine while he steadilly gazed into her calm eyes.Drink, she said -- and he drank.And as he drank, he couldnt figure out if that moment of wellbeing was coming from the wine or from her presence. In either case, Nikos wasnt taking any chances: his good eye never left hers and he didnt stop drinking even after his cup was empty.Azriels request for more wine finally broke the spell, however, causing some of the executioners to escort the women to a safer distance away while the other seized him and Nikos.Both of them were forced to their knees, then guided to the ground and onto their backs like pieces of unwieldy merchandise. They both knew that their preceding torture had been a mere prelude for what was in store for them now.And they knew it would continue without respite until they met their death.
