Dancing With Death's Daughter

The Beginning

A Needle in a Haystack

A cold breeze made woke me in the dark.
It wasn’t completely dark, I could see my surroundings, but, my entire body felt sore.
Oooops, I noticed I was tied to the chair.
What the hell was going on? I couldn’t remember anything.
Something terrible thing must have happened to me.

I was slowly getting used to being in the dark and torch light was helping me see a little.
The rope that tied me down to the chair was of pretty poor quality.

I tried to break the rope with my arms.
Just as I was about to give up, the rope broke with a dull noise.

(I flexed as hard as I could, and just as I thought I couldn’t push any harder, I heard a dull snap, and was able to get free.)

I was free!
I grabbed the torch and looked around carefully.
I was in a cave that smelled nasty and there was something that looked like blood on the ground next to a large pile of hay.

In the hay stack, I could see something shiny.
I went there and found a small iron dagger, it was literally a needle in a hay stack.
But actually, It’s not so difficult to find a dagger.

Not the best of weapons, but it should be better than my bare knuckles.

There was only one way out of the room, a wooden door, and it was locked.

Again, the door was of poor quality.

I could break it by slamming into it with my shoulder, but that would be a bad idea.

I don’t want to make a noise because I sitll didn’t know whether my situation is safe or not.
It probably wasn’t.

I took a rock from the ground and hit the lock twice.
Damn it! It’s still made quite a big noise.
Oh well, either way, the door was open.
I left the room that I was tied up in, and went down a cave tunnel.
After a minute or so, it split into two paths.
There was light coming from the right path, but the left path was dark.
