The Story – Chapter 62

March 26, 2014

The front hall of the tower was somewhere I had not explored before. The upper tower sure, but I had run through so fast on my way out last time I had not really had a chance to look around. Having slammed the heavy wooden door behind me, okay I couldn’t actually slam it, but I did lean against it and push it closed with my shoulder. I looked around. The main floor was very large–the entire width of the tower. Stairs hugged the wall circling up until they disappeared into the floor above. The floor was cobbled with large stones. I could vaguely hear the sound of voices but as I moved away from the door, they faded into silence. On the other side of the empty room there was a dark shadow. As I walked, I realized it was a void in the floor.

I crept forward. There were dirt steps cut into the void.

Standing over the steps, I peered into the darkness.

Then I heard it.

A voice, faint in the distance, singing.

Curious. I was alone in the tower. At least as far as my friends outside were concerned.

Well–I had been.

I headed down into the darkness.

    You never ever go down into the darkness alone!!! Bad things happen when you do that…

    Great tension in this chapter 🙂
