@ownagepants: Still struggling with the enormous hell-hound on top of her Slattern mockingly remarked to Aaron,“Well when you put it like that it sounds so simple.” Every moment she wrestled with the demonic hound used up her strength until she would no longer be able to fend it off.
Within her inner monologue Slattern assessed her dire situation, “Okay, okay got to focus or else I'm dog-food. I need to control this thing now.” Although Slattern was more than experienced at manipulating the minds of men and even some women she had never exerted her will upon anything like the hell-hound she faced.
While she fought with the hell-hound trying to keep it from devouring her by holding its jaws open Slattern received numerous lacerations to hands causing blood to flow from her wounds. Though blissfully ignorant to her magic potential Slattern's blood itself had highly potent magical properties provided by her demonic background.
As she bleed from her cuts into the mouth of the hell-hound it allowed her to exert a sort of mind control she had never used before, “STOP!” Slattern shouted at the top of her voice. With the simple utterance from Slattern reinforced by her blood magic the hell-hound seemingly froze in place like a statue, obeying her command.
