He gave a choice.

 Door one would take me back to the world I’d left behind. To my family and friends. I would be a normal boy once again. No more falling through time, no more chasing shadows, no more death and destruction…

 Door two, he told me, would mean darkness and pain. It would take me to the end of my wits and throw me far beyond. I would enter a world far more evil than the one I had just left. How was that even possible, I asked?

 Evil does not lessen, he said. It breeds. It multiplies.

 And then he said this:

 Door two will mean almost certain death.

 So I waited a moment, and I watched his ruby eyes glow beneath his hood.

 And then I pushed open the door.

 Door number two…

As soon as I stepped inside, a savage hand clutched my shirt and yanked me.  I heard a high-pitched screech, turned for the door, but realised it had vanished.  The scarred hand continued dragging me with relentless force down a long tunnel.  The scent of sewage and fresh blood triggered my memories of what I called home.  As I was carried into a …

mysterious no, BIZARRE, dirty dungeon. It was flooded with shattered bones and stock-piled dead bodies. I was thrown onto the ground and landed with a thump. As I rose I turned and saw a colossal mutated hydra  with muscular 32-pack abs and feet as monstrous as Big Foot. The hydra hissed . It had realised that I was conscious. It scuttled towards me as it tried to attack me. I just managed to dodge in time. There was a sword-like piece of metal on the ground. I grabbed it and slashed one head off the hydra. It was like a stand off. “The trouble with Hydras is that they always have more...

Trying to run through the gloomy and cold atmosphere away from the brutal beast, suddenly it rose, a mass of tangled limbs, each one armour plated with a paralyzing goo seeping from black pores. The monster clicked its mandibles and followed me with its enormous compound eye. Towering above me, as tall as a double decker bus, it began to emit a series of squeaks and clicks. The rustling noises that came from all directions told me that it was not alone…

A sense of fear struck me, but for some reason I didn’t regret my choice of going through door 2. As I’m running I see the shining light of the sun disappear as the door violently shuts. I’m stuck there with only the light of a torch. The sound of creaking wood boards on the walls and rattling chains seem to surround me. Just then I hear footsteps and I quickly turn around only to find a child crying and looking at me, the floor full of blood and dead bodies. While I can’t move I sense the smell of rotting corpses, but know I need to help this child. As I get closer and closer, the puddle of blood started vibrating, a figure climbed out of it. This creature is a nightmare that I feared would always come true. The figure is just short of the roof scraping its head. In one swift motion it takes the life of the poor girl, the head rolling only for my feet to stop it. As I look down, the innocent head’s last words tell me, “RUN!” The wall in front of me starts to crumble and a beam of sunlight blinds me. This is the only chance I have…

It was like the world was crashing down on me, collapsing in a heartbeat. My life flashed before my eyes. The deafening sound of the rocks crumbling down. My heart said one thing but my mind said another. The only choice I had was to run! The more I ran, the more I wanted to stop. I was fighting for breath. I jumped. All the energy left in me was pushed towards this goal. I knew only then I would be safe. After the relentless battle I was set free. I stopped. Hearing a noise echoing through my head. The noise got louder each time. This time I could have sworn I heard my name. I was going insane. Thoughts were running through my head. “Can I ever get back home?” Starting to regret my decision, I was missing my family the more I thought about them. My eyes started to prickle. Crying wouldn’t get me anywhere. There had to be a way back…

What was happening? What was going on? It felt as though millions of questions were racing through my mind! Suddenly the bright beam of light disappeared. It was pitch black. I heard a voice behind me it said ‘THERES NO ESCAPE’! By now I was crying with the tears flooding my face like I had a blue blanket over me. As I stood still like a statue I caught a small glimpse of a light shining towards me. I rapidly ran towards the light it was another door but it read ‘the only way home’…

Surely it couldn’t be true, how could he do so much to keep me here and yet offer my way home. I couldn’t believe it but I badly want to. Surely, this was another trick, another level in his nightmarish game of confusion but if I don’t I’ll be trapped and it won’t be long before another one of his demons comes after me and I don’t know if I have the strength to fight another one. So I’m decided, a voice in my head is screaming at me not to, but I have to if I don’t, I’m trapped. Slowly step by step trying not to awaken whatever may be sleeping behind the door I reach for the handle, the door creaks as I push it open... Something is not right; there is nothing but darkness surrounding me, no noise or creatures, nothing, I don’t even know where I am. Then I see her, the girl that convinced me to run, the girl that the monster so cruelly killed. She looks different, she no longer looks innocent. She looks like one of them, but before I can say anything she vanishes. I must be seeing things I have to be. Then it hit me like a car against a wall, that sudden impact of realisation. there is only one way out and that’s not by running from creatures through door after door. To escape the evil I must destroy the evil , but how ? ......

Then a light bulb flashed on in my head. To defeat the evil you must destroy the source. The only problem with that is where is the source located. Looks like I have a long night ahead of me. As I checked my watch it seemed to be 6:00, but I arrived in the dark world at 7:00. Either my watch was malfunctioning or it had been a whole day. Suddenly I realized it was neither. I finally had the nerve to connect the dots... time was going backwards. I remember someone telling me I had 24 hours to live, but maybe it was negative 24 hours. Out of nowhere I saw a movement in the shadows. I could tell whatever it was it was going somewhere. I started to follow it. After hours and hours of walking it came to a halt. We were standing in front of a square building. Maybe this was the answer to all my questions. I went inside to find my fate. As I stepped in I saw that the monsters' creator was standing right in front of me. I was about to charge at it when the lights went out.
