Christie was in chains. And she was in trouble.

"She's a witch! A witch!"

Specifically, she was chained to a podium, in front of a seated crowd of very angry people. The red-head was wearing a short strapless black dress and a small pair of panties. Her shoes had been confiscated for the trial, and the floor tiles felt cold to her bare feet. She was quite pretty, with a very shapely body, fiery red hair, and sharp green eyes. Obviously, that meant she was a witch, because no normal woman could possibly have such alluring features without having used terrible witchcraft.

Beside her, raised high up on a very imposing desk, was the High Inquisitor. He was a dark and scary man, known to be very ruthless. Before her, he had already tried and broken a great number of "witches". In fact, it was probably odd how it had taken this long for her to be accused. But the day had finally come.

"Christie Sallings, hereby known as the defendant. You have hereby been officially accused of having partaken in the act of devilry known as witchcraft. How do you plead?"

His voice was cold and authoritarian. Not a trace of warmth or emotion could be found in the speech of the man known as High Inquisitor. Christie swallowed her fears, and pleaded,

"...Not guilty."

The crowd booed and jeered. It was always the same. They didn't care whether she was really a witch or not. They just wanted a show, wanted to be entertained by watching her struggle and be humiliated. And for her, it really didn't matter what she had pleaded. Since she had pleaded "not guilty", she would now be put through several trials which would determine whether she was a witch or not. But if she had pleaded "guilty", she would still be put through those trials to cleanse her. It was a completely unfair setup that automatically sentenced the accused to a night of erotic tortures, with absolutely no way out.
