Mountain-The Dark Being
David stood in front of the cave wondering what he should do, walk in and find out what’s in it or turn around to face all his friend’s and admit he wanted to wuss out. He took a step forward and heard whispers of all the people behind him. He started to walk forward and thought about the reason for doing this. He thought about a huge mountain growing overnight and the dark almost familiar bellowing coming from this very cave “Hail to me, mortals and tremble for the million-year darkness has begun” and from that moment two months of no electricity. A week ago, they started sending people into the cave so that they could figure out what was in the cave it has now been six days and none of them have come back. As David walked, tentatively, towards the entrance of the cave the whispers from behind him started to become a yell. He smiled, turned around, and yelled “I’m gonna bring back the light!” and everyone started cheering as he ran towards the cave and sighed. He hoped he would be able to come back and not end up lost, trying to find a way to bring back the electricity. He closed his eyes and walked into the cave and immediately felt chills up his spine. He gulped and closed his eyes. This was not going to be fun.
A Week Later
David had been in the cave for too long, and he couldn’t even find his way back. It was a maze and he tried and tried to stay awake because whenever he did the maze changed and he was lost again but now he was closing in on the middle, the end, the evil…thing that was doing this. He knew because he kept hearing these noises, these voices as if someone or something was calling to him and now they were so loud, so close that he could feel them. As he walked closer to the center he kept seeing scratches on the walls and floors that looked like arrows which didn’t help him feel any better about whether he might die then he found it the center. He almost passed out from happiness and fatigue until he saw a creature with a human body, a spider like set of legs, and a head that he could only describe as a mixture of both. It turned towards him and said in an evil voice that chilled him to the bone “Mortal how dare you enter my sanctum without my permission! I AM A GOD OF DESTRUCTION AND YOU COME IN AS IF YOU OWN THIS PRECIOUS HOME!?” David could only reply with one word “N-No?” The beast’s eyes widen “HA YOU CAN’T EVEN SPEAK TO ME WITHOUT STUTTERING” he laughed and David had started to feel sick just standing in his presence but now he was close to vomiting. He bent over and barfed for a straight minute before the monster said, “I SHALL LET YOU GO TO TRY AND DEFEAT ME I’ve always loved the humans resilience BUT I ONLY GIVE YOU FIVE DAYS UNTIL I ATTACK THE HUMANS AND DESTROY THIS EARTH SO GO NOW AND TELL YOUR PEOPLE THAT I, THE DARK BEING OF DESTRUCTION, AM COMING TO DESTROY YOU ALL!” then he threw a map at David and he passed out.
When David woke up he was back in town surrounded by concerned people. When someone said, “He’s awake!” David’s head shot off the pillow “I have to follow this map and find a way to destroy the Dark Being that wants to destroy us.
