Author's Note: An Alternate bit To a Fic I'm working on. Character Death. I'm trying to wiggle my way out of writer's block so bare with me.
Prompt: #2 Death

She couldn't move.

Strangely enough, that was the only discomfort she felt.

She wasn't in pain, she wasn't scared, she just couldn't move.

JJ's mind was fuzzy from whatever drugs her attacker had injected her with. She was in the tub in her apartment and then she was being carried into the back of the old abandoned church near her building. She should have fought him harder.

Her muscles cried out in pain and shock as he stretched her out on the altar, all the while whispering words to her that she couldn't make out. He tied ropes around her wrists and ankles, anchoring her to the rough wooden plank, like the other girls. She'd burn just like them.

She could feel herself slipping away, the lights dimming as her body was raised up.

"Cut her down."

They had been too late to save her. One of their own left to be strung up like a modern day Joan Of Arc, saved only from the flames by them finally arriving. Too late to keep her alive but in time to save her more pain.

"Cut her down NOW!"

Gideon stood frozen in place as Morgan carefully cut JJ down and laid her gently on the altar. He would have to tell the others, he would have to call her parents. He would have relied on her help if it had been someone else.

Tragic and sad. I don't like JJ dying- but nicely done just the same :)
