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

ernbelle: When I first started this story I was a little unsettled by all of the information that appears in the prologue, and wasn't sure if I would continue. However, I am very glad I did. The plot was very well thought out and really interesting. There were not any page breaks or markers to acknowledge ...

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Oru Manna: Within this tale is a cast of characters with intensely unique voices and personas; each one radiating their own desires so clearly, you would think they were all written by different people. Their behaviors, their speech patterns, even their thoughts are so independent of one another, it really ...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

Lauren Suzmeyan-Raine: I'm so glad you found a place to post your stories. I was horrified when I saw yours had been taken down, they are definitely the best 'reading' stories I've ever read. And I've made it my business to read every one I can. Well done.Lauren

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

Alexis Dredd Zarcal: Overall, it's a rather thrilling piece, merging superstition, psychology, slice of life, and the usual Japanese risque fare.
