Will you never learn?

This is a story with no beginning and no end. It’s also a bit gruesome and not for the faint hearted. I don't what it says about the author! You have been warned!
.


They stood across the room from each other. The things he'd just said had stunned her into an angry silence. He just stood there glaring at her, his eyes wide and piercing. The only sound she could hear was the tic-toc of the clock, the cur-thump cur-thump of her heart.


She cowered against the wall shaking violently, beads of sweat trickling down her tanned face. She narrowed her eyes and fixed her gaze on him.


He lurched towards her.
.
‘Stop right there’ she yelled but still he came closer and closer.
.
‘Come one more step’ she shouted, her voice trembling ‘and it will be your last so help me God’
He stopped a few inches from her, raised a finger and pressed it hard against her heaving chest.
.
She leapt forward catching him off guard and pushed him with incredible force across the room and into the wall opposite.
.
‘Will you never learn?’ she hissed, leaning against him.
.
In an instant his eyes bulged. He tried to speak but all he could manage was a choking sound. She took a step back and a satisfied smile broke out on her face.
.
She turned to walk towards the door. Before she left she glanced over her shoulder and stood for a moment watching him slowly slide down the wall and onto his knees, leaving behind a smear of blood as he sank.
.
She threw the knife onto the floor.
.
With a one shaking hand he managed to reach the blade and with the other he grabbed her ankle.
.
‘It’s not over yet’ he groaned.
