Oh. Oh god, oh god, oh god. They’re here!  There’s nowhere to escape now. No way. I can see and hear the monks muttering frantic prayers, sweat glistening on their brows. The doors rattles and the pace of their mutterings increase. The door crashes open – barely still hanging on its hinges. My legs scream, “Run!” But where too?

I was shaking with nerves as a lithe lunatic sauntered towards me, swinging his weapon in hand. Kill or be killed. It was obvious which one would happen to me.
