5. Firey surroundings

A blaze of bright light roused me and I looked up. I wasn't in the blackness any more.

I was in a wide corridor carved into rock that glowed with a red light illuminating from spheres of fire hanging in mid-air just above the ground next to the walls. The ground itself was like dried lava, only a dark red instead of greying black. I couldn't see where the tunnel ended in front of me but behind me it went back a few metres before being cut off by a wall of red rock. I had no choice but to walk on.

Ahead the rock opened out into a large chamber, empty apart from more of the glowing spheres and a large door. It was made of wood, carved with intricate patterns that looked not unlike the bones of humans. Near the top, the shape of a skull had been carved, but the eyes were not made out of wood, more like a black glass that I could just see my tiny figure reflected in from below the great door, like the eyes were focused on me, like they were watching me. I shivered.

At either side of the door stood two massive pillars, decorated with the same pattern as the door, so they looked like they were part of it from a certain angle. On top and inside of the pillars, although they were also made of wood, fires were burning which lit the door with an eerie amber glow.

The Gates of Hell.
