Next thing I remembered was waking up. It felt like years. There´s been nothing in the place that I woke up in. There were walls, which were rising up to nowhere. The floor was cold made from marble just like the stairs in the chateau. I called for Oli and Elis. No reply. There was only darkness and silence. Was I dead?
