Evelyn found herself in a dark slimy pit.
She looked around wildly but knew she was alone. She stood up; trying to feel her way around, then heard a low rumbling sound.
Evelyn screamed and it echoed. The sound reverberated and seemed to bounce back on the thin walls. Sobs racked through her body at her desolation. Wherever she was, her destiny was worse than before. She felt a tremor, looked down at her feet, and saw a big opening on the floor. There was a cracking sound and the ground slowly divided into two. She found herself flying to the other side of the pit and when she looked up; the sun was streaming down into the pit.
Surprisingly, a chain materialized from nowhere spinning towards her direction. She grinded her teeth in anticipation as she grabbed the chain but it was so hot it burnt her palms and she screamed out in pain and released it. The gaping hole on the ground was now closing together, Evelyn knelt down and peered inside it as flames of fire spurted out and suddenly, a creature came out of the flames.
He was a very good-looking man.
His hair was dark and curly; his eyes brown and his skin was a bronze like colour, a white robe covered his body.
”Come and I will lead you out of this place but there will be a covenant between us.”
Evelyn stared at the creature and at her surroundings, she had no recollection of how she got into the pit but she did remember her daughter, Caroline. She wanted to get back to her as soon as possible.
”I will do anything, please just get me out of here.” She said desperately; hope lighting up her entire being.
