The constant tapping sound was what woke him but he knew better than to open his eyes first off. Tensing muscles in his arms and legs, he discovered that he was strapped down, spread-eagled in fact. This was not a good sign.

As she rose up to look over him, he saw that she was human-shaped from the hips up and then it was all…insect.

“Milli Pedera, I presume?” Her smile was sharp rows of teeth revealed behind large, arthropod mandibles and she touched a hand to the centre of her chest. “Of kourse!” She replied, with pride. “And you will sssoon be dead.”
