"Ah, I can't wait to get back to my Sundays, hey Freddy?"

"Yeah, better than digging up some old thing that's about to fall apart."

"Hmm, BBQs and footy. Who's your ace team, pal?"

But Fredrick Victoria wasn't listening to his partner. Both explorers were scouting a cave that was 4.6 miles away from the nearest town. They had received a call to check it out when worry had risen about a tomb of creatures being found at the back of the cave's main tunnel.


"Milo, come look at this."

Milo James stumbled over to his partner's side and gasped in awe. Just a couple of metres below them was a dark pit with another tunnel entrance, which was glowing bright gold.

"Let's go check it out!"

"Whoa, there Fred. We're not getting any signal down here, what happens if we have an accident?"

"Milo, I honestly don't care, man. I want to see this, stay up here if you want."


Fredrick set off trekking down the small cliff, Milo watched on in disappointment, he had a bad feeling about letting his partner go in there alone.

"Fred! God's sake, come back in one piece."

Milo stood and watched as Fredrick raced off into the bright cave's entrance.

"I will."

Fredrick waved it off as he took a couple of steps into the cave, the golden light burnt Fredrick's eyes but he still kept going. Fredrick reached the heart of the cave and stood looking all around him.

"Holy... Milo, man, you've got to see this!"

Fredrick called, but Milo didn't reply, Fredrick wondered if he even heard him.

All around the cave's walls were carvings of weird stuff, like Earth but mutated. There were about 18 tombs in total strewn across the cave. Fredrick walked up to one of them which had unusual wording above it. The tomb was slumped against the wall of the cave.

Fredrick pulled it open, the entire cave was gold, even the tombs and walls. Once the tomb was open, Fredrick stood there in complete stunned silence.

Before him, slouched a sleeping white creature. It was taller than the average human and its skin was pure white. It had short white hair and was wearing some sort of white battle suit. It had hands with four fingers, it didn't have toes or ears. A small mouth and eyebrows, along with a nostril less nose. The creature started to stir, Fredrick caught a glimpse of the deep red in its eyes.

"Shit, Milo! Its an albino!"

Milo strained to hear his partner's words but failed, all he caught was a scream and the cry of 'run'.


The creature shrieked and hooked its hands around Fredrick, it growled in satisfaction as it snapped and tore his head off completely.


Milo screamed as he heard a sickening snap, he stared in horror as the albino like creature stormed out of the cave and locked eyes with him. It had a broad chest with long legs and strong arms. But the one thing that caught Milo's eye was that this creature didn't have any pupils.

Its eyes were just red, nothing more, just blood red.

Milo screamed as he tried to get away, he lost the creature in the tunnels. But Milo himself had gotten lost, and with that creature around and no signal. All hope was lost.

Rebeccaseal: This was an almost perfect story that I would recommend to anyone. The only thing I would work on is painting a more realistic picture of Haiathiel. Somehow the environment seemed limited, and the land itself a bit unfinished. This can be solved simply by added descriptions to people and places. ...

PurpleInkling: Hippocrite is spelt hypocrite.Also it is an awesome story! A good one after so long. I was hoping someone would write a good fanficiton playing off what Ron said at the station. You are doing a remarkable job. It would have been interesting if Albus had also ended up in Ravenclaw though that mig...

neil101: The best story I have read online in quite some time. The casual violence is tamed down with easy going wit. It reads like a Joe Abercrombie novel .Looking forward to more. Thanks.

Ben Gauger: Kudos to Bryan Laesch, author of Remnants of Chaos:Chaotic Omens for his use of the Gothic style of writing and in addition the footnotes and endnotes at the end of each chapter, a welcome accompaniment to be sure, though his use of grammar could use a little improving, but his use of punctuation...

Warchief: The biggest problem with the Harry Potter series is that it's all from his point of view. So we never really get to see or understand events from other peoples perspective.
