Although I knew sometime before this there must have been good times, bad times were all I could remember right now.  My stay in this room was an eight day hell so far, and I didn’t expect it to get much better.  Every time I tried to move toward the door, the ropes would gouge away at my skin.  I had downgraded my goal from getting home to trying to find a way out of this place.   Straining against the ropes, I could feel my skin start to burn. Outside, he approached the door.  Upon entering, his first movement was to hastily cover his face and the angry birthmark on his cheek.  With that, his jacket lifted to reveal the cattle prod in its holster on his hip, an angry buzz came from its electric head: the agony suggested by that instrument made it hard to look away from it.   He stood behind me, and asked me the same unanswerable question he had asked every time he came here.  “What is fight club?
