I only then realized that all of this was on camera. Which is fine, I guess, considering that the first trail already had plenty of lawbreaking going on, so I didn't really fear any legal ramifications. The thing that bothered me was that someone might be getting some sick pleasure out of all this.
I then remembered that I hadn't decided about whether or not I should let Nick rape her. Checking my watch, there was still about twenty minutes left. If I just kept this door locked, I would eliminate him from these trials. He seemed smart, and was capable of at least tasering a person with the intent to rape them, so he was definitely not an opponent I wanted to continue facing. If it was only me, Jill, Mike, and Emma, I think I could basically come out on top of whatever trial would come next.
However, Nick was a wild card. He threatened my chances for the five million, and right now I had more than sealed my conviction in getting it. But, despite all that, I realized that I felt somewhat indebted to him for inadvertantly helping me in the first trial. I almost felt like I should at least give him the choice, to believe that he would make the "right" one, and he'd be able to go home, knowing that even if he doesn't have five million dollars, he at least has his integrity.
Realizing how dumb that would be, I started to barricade the door.
