Drip Drip

I don't own House of Anubis

The darkness was unnerving. Nothing but pure darkness as far as the eye could see. I could hear nothing except for my racing heartbeat, my ragged breath and the constant drip of water. At least I hope it was water I was hearing.

Drip

Drip

Never ceasing

Always dripping

Drip

Drip

It might not have been water. It could have been blood. I leave one hand on the wall to guide me on my way. The other hand was clenched around my sword.

Drip

Drip

Drip

Oh gods! Was that a faint breathing I heard?! I could not possibly have come this close the to monster's lair already! My mind drifts to the fact that all of the others who have come before me on this quest never came back. I'll be next.

Drip

NO DON'T THINK LIKE THAT NINA MARIE MARTIN! YOU ARE THE CHOSEN ONE AND YOU WILL DEFEAT THE MONSTER! You have to. I mentally shout at myself. That breathing was probably just my own, but what if it wasn't? The sword starts to slip in my sweaty palm. I wipe my hand on my shirt and hold my sword in it again.

Drip

Drip

Drip

It feels like the damp walls are closing in on around me. The heavy air is making it hard to breath. I've broken out in a cold sweat ages ago.

Drip

Drip

Drip

The sound is unending

Never getting any softer or louder

Drip

Drip

Drip

Oh gods! I'm going to die down here! Away from everyone I love, Fabian, Gran, Amber, Patricia, Alfie and Eddie. Eddie, my Osirian. Not even he can save me now. I must conquer the deadly dragon, or die.

Drip

Drip

I'm not imagining it now. That is someone else's breathing.

Drip

Drip

Drip

The smell of rotting flesh attacks my nostrils.

Drip

Drip

A ball of fire appears. The sudden light blinds me momentarily. Then I see IT. The dragon I have come down here to kill. In the new light I can see that it was blood after all making the dripping sound.

Drip

Drip

My blood will soon be joining it, and my bones will soon be joining the massive amount of others that can be seen all around.

Gulp

"You are the first Chosen One they have sent against me!" The dragon booms. It is an even more terrible creature than I had imagined.

Drip

Drip

Gulp

"No matter you will still die as all the rest have done!"

"I-I w-will ki-kill y-you." I whisper out.

Drip

Drip

"I highly doubt it!"

It laughs. Its laughter is a sound that sent shivers down my spine. The tale of my death is being backdropped by the sound of the steady drip of blood.

Drip

Drip

"It is time for you to die Chosen One!" It bellows before shooting a ball of flames at me. I was too terrified to move, to save myself.

Drip

Drip

The last sounds I hear before the fire claims my life and the underworld my soul.

Drip

Drip

Elizabeth Robbins: 4.5 starsAs far as apocalypse stories go, this one took a new direction. I'm glad someone finally addressed the need for a vampire apocalypse! This is sort of a multi-genre festival of delights. With hints of forced societies, vamps, hunters, romance, apocalypse, government conspiracy, and thrill...

Shayleen Seiberg: See, I wasn't sure if I'd like this story. But it turned out extremely well. It kept me interested the whole entire time. The only thing wrong with it is there are multiple grammatical errors. Not punctuation wise, but spelling wise and word placement wise. But overall, I loved the book.

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

Schaelz: I was intrigued from the second I started reading, and it kept my interest the whole way through. Chelsea has a way with words that will enchant you until the very end. She is very poetic with the way she mixes genres and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The main character is also very relat...

JWalker: I loved this story from start to finish! It flows at a really nice pace and the story world feels so real. The fight sequences are a treat especially when Isanfyre is training to become a warrior. I found the names really cool and thankfully easy to pronounce. Personally I have always struggled w...

Yellow: If you are looking for something original try Evening Goddess. Karina takes you on an adventure filled with tragedy and dangerous situations. The mixture of a serious plot and sexual situations keep you reading to discover what challenges she will face next. The novel will make you laugh, cry...

catd69: Karim is a very talented writer. When I started reading his journey it took me into the book and I was in the story till the end. I've never felt this way with any other writers stories. If you want to read a gripping adventure, this will be the one book I would suggest you pick.

ga1984: I really enjoyed it! Characters were deep and plot was pretty complex. A bit on the violent side but it doesnt detract from the story. Very dark but situations make sense. Ends kinda abruptly and later chapters will need some editing work. I'm assuming there's more in the works?

Olivia N J Hamel: I want this book. I love it so much. It is so enjoyable to read and to have a copy of this always, I would be very happy, to always be able to come back and look at it again.
