Prolouge:

I have to get out of here. . .

I panted as I ran desperately; I ran as if my life depended on it. My heart thumped loudly against my ribcage, desperately pumping blood to my other body parts. It's beating fast and loud and aggressive. I winced at the chest pain. My footsteps sounded like series of gunshots on a battlefield, it was loud and fast.

And the tunnel; it was long and dark and cold. It was horrible; every time there was a breeze it made a cold whistling sound; every time the soles of my feet touch the cold tunnel floor adrenaline rushes through me. My chest hurts, my feet are sore, and my lungs are working so hard. I ran desperately, I was always reaching my hand out, I'm just waiting. I'm waiting for someone to grab my hand; someone who can pull me out of that dark and miserable tunnel. I don't want to stop, I will never stop until I reach the exit, the way out, the light. I don't want to stop and catch my breath, because I know, I know that something's there. Something's hunting me down. I could hear its heartbeat, I could hear its footsteps, and I could feel it's presence.

My entire body was tired. It ached everywhere. Beads of sweat streamed down my face, I wiped it with the back of my hand lazily. Unfortunately, I gave up. My stupid body gave up on me. \"Please, stop!\" Is what my whole body said, everything became blurry. The darkness surrounded me. And where was I? Nowhere. I had no one to rely on. The only thing I see is darkness, the only thing I could hear was my own demons, they were calling me, they wanted to take over me.

\"It hath begun,\" a voice hissed. It wasn't comforting, and it wasn't very friendly. \"Hazel, join us. And we will conquer the Heavenly Ruins. Together, you and I.\" A cold hand touched my shoulder and squeezed it slightly. A chill went up my spine.

\"W-who are you?\" I stammered, \"How do you know my name?\"

\"Hazel Haiselden,\" I could see nothing but icy blue eyes, staring right at me. But I could feel his menacing grin. \"We want you,\"

I felt more cold hands on me. They were grabbing me, pulling me deeper into the tunnel.

\"Let me go!\" I shouted. Their grip was so strong, it was impossible for a weak girl like me to break free. I surrendered and darkness surrounded me once more.

I feel like I'm dying. . .
