Stopping, as he requests, Kassim swings himself onto his side inspecting one
of the blades protruding from one corner of the shaft.
Taking a pre-prepared damp cloth from his pocket he carefully wraps it around
the blade. Sliding down its length he wipes away Brian’s blood. Looking
down he can make out a spiral of blades jutting out from the four-corners in
the square shaft.
It is impressive but repulsive, as bits of flesh seem to be hanging from them.
Unfortunately his flash-light is not all that strong and he’s frightened
to the point of thinking his imagination may well be playing tricks on him.
