An itch that needed scratching

It's a little-known fact that the act of scratching releases dopamine into your system.

This means that every time you scratch an itch, you're not just relieving a discomfort: you're making yourself feel better. It's no surprise, then, that some people can take it a little too far.

 

Craig had an awful itch that needed to be scratched. His short fingernails desperately dug along flesh, hoping to alleviate the horrid sensation tinkling inside of him.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

Aaaah, it felt so good.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

He broke the skin. Blood began to trickle out, but his fingers had not yet reached the spot nagging him.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

Dopamine seeped into his system, filling him with a pleasant sense of relief, though not enough to stop him quite yet.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

No, he couldn't stop, not even after he made it through all the layers of skin, and to the muscle tissue: the itch ran deeper.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

He could see something white just outside of his reach. There was no going back now. The itch was so strong. He needed to scratch that white form hiding under the muscles.

 

*Scratch scratch scratch.*

 

His fingertips finally reached the femur's bony surface. The itch was gone, and Craig let out a sigh of relief. It felt so good.

He had all the pleasure of scratching an itch, without any of the pain.

 

Just as Craig thought he was finally done, he felt another itch right behind the eye. His bound victim thrashed and screamed in panic as Craig's bloody finger approached his face.

He couldn't help it: it was an itch he needed scratching.
