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

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

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.

The End
