The 2 boys and 2 girls must travel halfway around the world and look for the price of their lives. Will she be able to find what matters most? Or will they all die in the end?

Im terribly bad at this, but please give it a chance?


27. Explanations

When i woke up everything was blurry. Things started to get into focus slowly and i gasped. This was not my room. I was on a big cave sort-of-thing, lying on a metal bed on a corner. There was a metal table in the middle, and in it was the blasted ring with a big knife next to it. A high roof let in some natural light, since the door at the other side only led to a dark corridor. I sat up confused, the last thing i remembered was going to bed. Hmm. Caspar came in and leaned against the table regarding me with pity. -Caspar! Whats going on?! Where are we?- i asked him standing up. The floor was cold against my bare feet. -I'm so sorry Anto, believe me. I would've done it differently if i could- now he looked embarrassed. -what? Can you please explain whats going on?!- he did.

The valkokulta sormus, as it turns out, is a magical ring. Not the Lord-of-the-Rings kind, of course. It's like a time travel machine, only that it woks with lives instead on electricity. Someone must die for it to work, and of course that someone was me. Now the quote on the coffin made sense, is it really worth it? Does power matter most than a human life? What matters most? My knees gave out from underneath me and i fell to the floor crying. Caspar was still talking. -I'm terribly sorry Anto, i am your friend! But Dani found out in the letter and she was going to tell you.. And i couldn't allow it. My life's on the line too! You wouldn't want to give it up if you knew how dangerous it could be so..- he trailed off. -i.. I.. If i.. Die? Will the others be free?- he nodded and dropped to his knees next to me. -of course! This doesn't have to be any harder than it needs to- who was this boy in front of me? He wasn't my Caspar anymore.

Looking over his shoulder i saw something catch the light. A blond bob? Caspar turned around and was tackled to the floor by Finn. They started struggling an throwing punches, i couldn't believe my eyes. Dani came running over to me and helped me to stand. -Anto! We have to go!- pulling me along, she ran for the door. Jack was by the table grabbing the ring and knife, before turning and yelling at us. -GET OUT OF HERE NOW!- we were crossing the door and Jack went in again to help his brother. A few feet ahead i saw the entrance, so close. But Dani suddenly stopped and went back inside. -what the?!- i yelled after her. Dammit. Running too, i got in just in time to witness the worst thing ever. Finn was lying unconscious on the ground, Jack kneeling at his side and Caspar lying there too. The knife was on the floor next to his hand and everything happened in slow motion after that. He got up, grabbed the knife and tried to stab Jack. He would've died, thats as much as i knew from seeing the trajectory and Jack's obliviousness to it. Dani was way ahead of me, so she got in the way. She got her body in the way.
