I was alone, stranded in the dark and silence that accompanied it. Limbs reached out to caress me wherever I was, I had no choice but to keep moving. Hours had passed of mindless walking and torment by the entities that accompanied me, I grew more accustomed to the shear nothingness and traversed through what I was yet to identify. I mentaly was yet to tire but my body had deteriorated to the point where the entities where snapping my bones like hardend wax. In the distance I noticed a light, the only visual change I had found in what had seemed like years and the only shred of hope I could ever remember, I began to run at the light and even when my lungs felt like they where going to fail me, even when my body had been mangled, cut, torn of limbs and even burrned I stayed in motion. The light in the distance was all that occupied my thoughts it began to come closer, only a minuscule change was enough to charge my will to continue on. I was knocked to the ground by a unseen entity and when I arose I had lost sight of the light. I fell to my knees as I had my first moment of clarity. I should have died holding a flashlight.
