Little does Tanya know that a dark secret is being held back, but was it really her family holding it back or Tanya herself?


21. Bottles

Dom crawled quickly out of his hiding place once he heard no more footsteps nearby. The young boy looked down the long rusting winding staircase and he grabbed a bottle off the shelf at the top of the steps. It read 'to be used only in dramatic circumstances'. Another set of footsteps were heard nearby. Dom strained his ears to see which direction they were coming from. This time, they were coming from the direction of the never ending abyss of stairs. A small skinny shadow started slinking slowly up the stairs, growing larger and larger as they got nearer. In a state of panic, Dom dropped the bottle holding the shiny blue liquid and it shattered into thousands of sharp glittery pieces. He ran as quickly as he could behind the towering wooden cabinet and hid behind the long lines of bottles and glasses. A tall built-up man stood alone at the top of the staircase, bending down cautiously to pick up the broken pieces. He looked around, and Dom hid his head even further down behind the shelves. His heart was thumping even faster than he had felt before, and he didn't know what was going to happen to him if he ever got caught. A single heavy black shoe with a foot inside was placed in front of the cabinet, the man's hands grabbing at another bottle on the middle shelf. The shattered pieces stay lying by themselves on the dust-layered floor, unoccupied and looking as if they had never been touched after being dropped. Heavy breathing took over the strange man's body, a grunting noise escaping his thick hairy lips. Dom looked up through a minute crack in the wooden planks that made the shelves, and looked straight into the man's eyes. The man's evil eyes were a deep inky abyss of black water, a small shine glazing over the surfaces of his eyeballs. His eyelashes were thin and spidery, wet and out of place severely. Then he saw him. The man saw Dom...
