The Beginning To A New Start

By Afc0413

Action / Adventure

Only Day One

I was startled awake by a flashing light. The shaft that I was contained in jolted and then started to move upward. Looking around at my surroundings, fear started to take over my thoughts.

For a split second, the light blinded me, but I quickly got use to it. My feet scrambled from underneath me and I was standing immediately.

There was still a cage-like door holding me inside, but I opened it with ease. Outside was all dirt except for a few grass splotches here and there.

The whole place was surrounded by gigantic walls, reaching the height of probably around three hundred feet high. They were made of stone and had ivy tendrils growing on them.

Just a few yards away was something that looked like a tall, worn-down house. It was made of wood and the roof caved in slightly. The door was creaked open, it had no handle to turn to open or to close it. Windows scattered the building, some of which had the glass broken. It was all just scary.. where am I?
