(Awesomley Amazing Challenge 09)

Darkness. No light, just complete, terrifying darkness. Emptiness. I could feel my heart beat smashing against my ribcage- i could hear the desperate pounding of my pulse. Stumbling. Falling. Falling down and down into into nothing but damp musty darkness. I had never felt more alone. Earth. Coating my hands, seeping into my fingernails. Blood. The bitter taste of blood in my mouth. A horrible taste.

My stomach lurched. I hear ragged breathing behind me. Spinning, I see nothing but a never ending veil of darkness. I see my tomb. A hand reaches out, cold and filthy. I cant scream- i open my mouth but nothing comes out. The grasp is hard, tight. There is no face to this person, just hands, filthy and terrible against my bare shoulders.

" Who are you? " Comes from my mouth as more of a whisper than what i had hoped to be a bold question.

" Me? " The mocking reply comes, " I , dearest, am your very worst nightmare."

(My ending for Awesomley Amazing Challenge 09)

Lost within my worst nightmare. Fighting. Fighting against a mighty force, the force of darkness. I find myself kneeling upon a grave. My grave. I grieve, but why? I'm not dead. " Am I? " Suddenly I feel her pesence, an eerie presence. An eerie and evil feeling takes my hand.

" Come! " Her voice harshly spoke. There was a face in the darkness now. Hidden behind an empty mask. Black. Blackness in her eyes, but still a slight reflection, a reflection of me. " It cant be! " I screamed.

Release me! " I yelled. But through the veil of darkness was only my voice. My screams. I realized the eerie and evil hand was my own. My own face, my darkness. A Nightmare of my own making.

I have grown to know her, this nightmare of darkness. I have grown to need her strength. My strength. As evil as she may be, she will always be a part of me.
