Act 2, Scene 5: In like Lambs
Before you is a long chamber with a raised dias at the far end. Upon the dias is an altar stained with blood. Tascela, Princess-Witch of the Tecuhltli stands beside it as a young woman is chained to the altar by a pair of handmaidens. She cries out, "Please! Don't I have served you well, don't kill me!" But her pleas do not move the Witch, it has been many decades since much has.
