1. Unsteady Beginnings
Shaking I blink trying to wake myself up. The world around me is igniting into a pure white flame burning and twirling across my vision. I cry out and stumble trying to cover my eyes. After so long in the pitch-darkness the sudden appearance of light overpowers me –even through the palms of my hands. Rapidly, I blink trying to re-focus and see my surroundings. I am thankful that they have finally give me some light. My head is throbbing painfully. It’s like I have been hit over my head.
I peer around. The rooms, as I had suspected, was almost certainly underground-more of a dungeon than a room. There was a bleak and forbidding air about the place; there were no pictures, no decorations at all; just grey walls that looked like nothing more than painted concrete. I know that this wasn’t somewhere I wanted to be by choice. If I hadn’t chosen to come here how had I got here? I wondered curiously and starting to feel slightly worried.
Then I saw it .My way out.
I push myself up with all my remaining strength and stagger over to the door, spots dancing across my vision until I reached it. I try the door handle. It’s locked. I definitely didn’t want to be here.
Suddenly, a voice boomed across the room startling me.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you. You’re going to need your energy Kane”
