Al I could do now was cry. I lay on a stone paved floor, surrounded by grey brick walls. I was held captive in a jail cell. It was underground so there was a window like object shining light in. Other than that, everything was completely dark. I was terrified, I didn’t mean for things to turn out this way.
I start singing;
Lost in the darkness
Hoping for sign
Instead there’s only silence
Can’t you hear my screams?
Never stop hoping
Need to know where you are
But one things for sure
You’re always in my heart
Suddenly, a dark figure enters through a small door in the corner. All I could see was that her hair was in a bun with a dagger stuck in the center. She grabbed my arm and lifted me up. Her strong grasp put a shock of pain through my arm. I squealed a little as she squeezed harder. She finally let me go and threw me back into the wall.
Up in my face she whispered, “I will kill you now if you make another noise” she slapped me and chained me up.
I shook my head in pain as she dragged me out of the dark prison. Now I wished I were still in there. I felt numb; my arms were now bleeding as the chains rubbed on them. I saw soldiers dressed in armor speed by as I was pulled. There were red and black paintings hanging that seemed to tell a story. The first one was a black figure with tons of cheering red figures crowding it. The second one showed the black one in a forest opening a door. Then there was another black one who watched him leave, it held a red flower in its hand. It went to save the other figure, but the figure turned out to be dead.
All of the sudden, I was thrown into a chair. I looked around and saw that I was now in a room full of windows. Tons of armored soldiers surrounded me, and the girl who had captured me was Ally. My eyes widened in shock, “Ally! It’s me, Sally!”
Ally disregarded me and gave orders to the soldiers, “Tie her up!”
The soldiers did what she said and put more chains around me.
“Do you really think I’m this strong?” I yelled.
“No, I need more chains to do what I want them to do.” She grinned and looked at the ceiling. It was tall with a point at the top. I could barely make out a long line of chains lowering with a loop at the end. I felt my neck tighten as I imagined being hung. She laughed like a maniac and left the room.
I was breathing in a, soon to be, Soulless body. I felt the loop tighten around my throat. It felt so real, even though it was just my mind. I began to cry and softly sing to calm myself.
I’ll find you somewhere
I’ll keep on trying
Until my dying day
I just need to know
Whatever has happened
The truth will free my soul
I sighed as I heard the clanking of the chains getting closer. I sure hope Jack is okay, wherever he is
The song Sally was singing is called Somewhere by Within Temptation. All credit to them. I know Sally is made of leaves not blood. Please bear with me, I thought it seemed dramatic. I also wanted to add: those red and black pictures have a true meaning to them. I hope you can figure them out.
