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.


5. Into darkness

               I felt as if my body is being burnt alive. My eyes were closed, and I tossed and turned in a dreamless sleep. I saw fire and destruction, it made me feel a strange sense of joy. I heared screams, like music to my ears and I could smell the scent of fear. Then I opened my eyes.

            I sat up and felt a strange hunger, a hunger for blood. I stood up from the rock and slammed my fist into it's surface. It shattered into a million pieces. My lips curved upwards and I raised my palm and shot a jet of flame at an already burnt tree. I grinned, and felt my fangs pierce my lower lip. A drop of black liquid rolled down my chin. I then heard a noise to my right, and my head snapped in it's direction. It was a boy with blonde hair and blue eyes. He was staring at me in horror and confusion, but there was no fear in his eyes. I let out a mighty roar and lunged at him, but he had already disappeared, and I had no need to pursue him.

        Instead I walked in the opposite direction, following the scent of another human. I soon reached her. She stood alone, unaware of my presence, with fiery hair tied back. She smelt of blood.

       I flung myself at her, before she had time to move, and sunk my fangs into her throat. She screamed, blindly trying to fend me off, but to no avail. She turned her head towards me, and I saw as her eyes turned black empty. She then crumpled to the floor. Satisfied, I left her and went in search of the boy I had seen earlier. It didn't take me long to find him. He was sitting by a tree, looking lost. He smiled weakly at me as I approached.

     "Marina," he whispered, desperation in his voice. "Marina, are you still in their?"

Marina. That word means something, I can feel it. Then, I remember everything. It all starts to come back to me.

"Jayce," I whisper. And then the wave of memories hit and I fall unconscious, but instead of being drowned in darkness, I'm drowned in light.
