It’s a wet day and extremely cold, but you are in your bedroom safe and warm under the covers. You are dreaming about becoming somebody who creates video games. You are dreaming that you are going to come out with something one hundred percent original. You’re just getting to the good part (the getting famous part) when all of a sudden something wakes you. Thunder is crackling outside and the lightning is so bad that it lights up the entire house. You aren’t sure what woke you up so you get out of bed and grab a flashlight and a small pistol for your bedroom nightstand. Slowly you walk around the house making sure that there are no intruders or anything dangerous. Suddenly you realize what woke you up. Somewhere in your subconscious while you were sleeping you heard a loud crashing sound. You walk downstairs into the kitchen and then to the living room and you realize with horror that a lantern was somehow knocked down and your entire living room is on fire. You race back up the stairs to wake up the rest of your family. You grab your younger sister first and then your mom and finally your dad. You tell them whats going on and together you all hurry downstairs to try and get out of the house, but the fire has spread to the kitchen, bathroom, and hallway. You notice that the only place not burning is the family sitting room. You rush over to the sliding glass doors and you just barely manage to get everyone out except for yourself and just as you try to get out the door bursts into flames. It was like it came out of nowhere. You know you don’t have much chance of getting out. You say a prayers to go to protect your family and watch over them. The house continues to burn but you end up passing out. When you wake up the entire house is in ashes yet you are still alive. In fact there isn’t a single mark on you. How is this possible?

So as I said you wake up unharmed and completely okay, (well as okay as you can be) You look around at your surroundings. Your family is nowhere in sight and the entire street that you live on is stripped bare and now turned into nothing but dirt. The trees, the houses, the grass, everything is gone. You take a few steps forward and a big pile of ash lands on you, but it’s weird. The ash is white. Isn’t ash supposed to be black? You take a few more steps and before you even realize you are falling down but you don’t hit the dirt. Instead you keep falling. A hole has opened up and you are heading straight for it. Just as you are about to touch the ground you stop falling in midair. You are hovering over the ground but you can’t touch your feet to it. You try to move and are surprised to see a clear glass step appear. Finally you are on something solid. By this point you are so confused and have no idea what’s going on. All you know is that you are hoping against hope that this is all just a terrible nightmare, but is it?

Still unsure whether it’s a nightmare or reality you take one step forward then another. For each step you take another glass step appears. You walk for awhile not really knowing what else to do. Suddenly the steps turn to the right and start to slightly slant upwards. You have come this far might as well go on. The steps go on forever or at least it feels that way. Finally they stop. Now what? It’s dead quiet. Other than the steps everything is completely dark. You feel like you are in an endless void. Then there is a buzzing sound and as you look there slowly another hole starts to spiral open and form in the wall right in front of you. Do you go inside?

So you are staring at this black hole in the wall right in front of you. It gives you a really creepy feeling, but at the same time you are really curious where it will lead to, besides you only have two choices. You either go through the hole or you go back the way you came. You turn around to face the way you came thinking you probably shouldn’t risk it but the glass stairs have disappeared. Okay well looks like you have no choice. Into the black hole you go. At first as you enter the hole nothing happens, but then slowly the hole starts getting wider and wider until finally you can’t even see where it began. In fact there doesn’t seem to be an end either. You stop for a moment to catch your breath. You didn’t realize that you had been breathing so hard. All around you different things start appearing. You have no idea what they are. They are all things you have never seen before or at least not that you can remember. You see one thing off to your left that makes a shiver run down your spine. It reminds you of the headless horseman. It looks small but as you walk up to it you realize it’s actually really big. In fact it’s even bigger than you. Red eyes stare out at you and the figure starts to shake. It’s slow at first but as time ticks on it becomes faster and increasingly violent. You realize that it looks nothing like the headless horseman like you initially thought. I mean the thing has eyes and they are staring straight at you. It opens it’s mouth and hisses at you. It has a tongue that looks like a snake and eyes that look like an angry bull, but whats even weirder is the shape of it’s body. It’s shape reminds you of a jack in the box. It’s coiled and ready to spring. What the hell is this you wonder. The figure has stopped shaking now and it’s just staring at you. You feel like it can see right through you. It’s looking at you so severely that you fear it will spring on you and eat your insides out… time to run.

Time to run. You try and move but to your horror you can’t. Not this again. The thing still staring at you starts to speak. You have to run it says. I was made this way and I will kill you without a thought and I won’t regret it either. I have no soul, no humanity nothing. It’s a curse, but that’s the just how it is. I release you. Run or die! And in that instant you are no longer paralyzed and frozen in place. You turn around and run like you have never ran before. The things that began appearing when you first entered the void begin to blur. You have no time to try and look at any of them. Frankly you don’t really want to. You run and run until finally you reach a forked turn. Left or right. You choose. The left looks like it could go on forever, but the right doesn’t look too much better. The left is completely black but the right has a tiny sliver of light at the end, except to get there you have to go over a huge rocky looking mountain
