Thousands of years in the future the world has been transformed. The ruthless System rule the planet. At age sixteen you are chosen for heaven or for hell. To make a perfect society, those chosen for Hell are killed and banished there, far away from the rest of the world. Once in Hell, you must fight to keep your humanity, although Hell has a way of turning you into a monster. But what if everyone there isn't evil. My name is Marina, and I was chosen to become a monster and stripped of my humanity. But what if I refuse.


6. Fugitives

       I groaned. My head was pounding. I opened my eyes to see Jayce standing over me.

"Marina!" he exclaimed in delight. "I really thought you were gone, your eyes had gone black and everything, and you were shooting fire from your hands."

"Wait," I said suddenly. "My eyes are black?"

"No,"he replied. "They're gold again thankfully."

        I sighed in relief. Then a thought occurred to me. I raised my hand, and a beam of flame burst from my hand, turning a tree to ashes. Jayce jumped in fright.

"You could have warned me," he said. I laughed, and I took his outstretched hand, and we started walking again.

"Jayce," I whispered. "Do you really believe there is a way out of this place?"

"There has to be," he replied. "There's a way out of everything."

        After hours we arrived at something we had never seen before. It was some kind of castle, so dark and sinister, that the sight of it chilled me to the bone.


         I tightened my grip on Jayce's hand as we walked towards it. Once we reached the entrance, I had started to shake slightly. Jayce squeezed my hand reassuringly.

"It's going to be OK," he said. "There could be a way out here."

       Jayce reached out his hand and twisted the knob. It was locked. I raised my hand, and blasted a hole through the door. I smiled slightly. Jayce cambered through the hole and I followed. We were standing in a wide hall. The floor was a polished marble and the walls appeared to be on fire. The roof was covered in giant curved black talons with red tips. And there, sitting on a throne at the other end of the room was the Devil himself.

              I gasped and felt Jayce tense up beside me. The Devil then turned towards us.

"What are you doing here?" he said, in a low, husky whisper.

Neither of us replied, we were simply staring at him in horror. The devil then muttered something under his breath, and two vicious dogs hurtled themselves in our direction. Hell hounds, I thought, panicked. In the nick of time I fired flame at them and they were noting more than a pile of ashes. The Devil looked at me and snarled. His eyes flashed in anger, and he raised his hand and shot a jet of flame towards me. I flung myself out of the way, slamming into Jayce as I hit the floor. I rolled over and jumped to my feet, Jayce was now standing at my side, sword in hand. The devil raised his hand once more and a pillar to my left, smashed and hurtled towards us. Jayce was hit by it's full force, and he crumpled to the floor unconscious. I was hit in the side, and I could feel blood soaking my t-shirt. With my last ounce of strength, I gathered a ball of flame in my hand, and fired.

        The shot missed the Devil by centimeters, hitting the wall beside him. It was then I realized that I hadn't really missed. The behind the Devil evaporated, revealing a flaming gate. And written across the gate in dark writing was The Gates of Hell. I was on the brink of consciousness, so I barely noticed when the Devil fired a beam of flame at me. Luckily it missed, singing the edges of my clothes. But I did notice Jayce, who was back on his feet, as he plunged his blade into the Devil's chest. The devil cried in agony, and disappeared, leaving a cloud of ash.

     Jayce stumbled towards me, he was covered in blood and his clothes were mere rags. I guessed I probably was just as bad. He took my hand in his and we walked towards the gates. They opened as we neared, and I almost collapsed. Before us was Earth, our home. Just as we stepped across the threshold I felt something in my chest. It was my heartbeat.
