ThE cOrRiDoR pArT 2

Her heart raced, pounding in her chest
She felt that she couldn’t take the trauma any longer
She gathered all her courage and
Without a moment’s hesitation she jumped up like a frog in a pot
She raced down the corridor panic stricken and pale
Her frail body fighting with all its might to keep going
Every ounce of strength she channeled into a crazed determination to continue
All she could think was “I must escape”
“Louiseeee” The voice echoed
Her heart nearly burst inside of her little body
She let out a scream of her own
So loud it sounded almost too big to come out of her
At last, the neverending corridor seemed to twist
It wasn’t an even corner
It was crooked and deteriorating
It appeared as a thousand year old puzzle was falling apart
She dashed breathlessly around the corner just to find
A door!  It was at the bottom of a staircase to the left
It looked like it led to a dungeon
Could it be a trap?
She was weary but had no time to think and no other options
Without a moments pause she raced for the staircase eyes desperate for an escape
She ran down the cold damp staircase and half way down she lost her balance and carelessly tumbled the rest of the way down
The moment she reached the bottom she grasped the door knob and twisted
Only to find that it was locked
Just then… the power went out
Sheer darkness
Then came the blood curdling scream again
Followed was the monstrous chuckle
The girl terrified curled up her head over her knees and began to shiver and cry
Just then she heard “Louise” in a whisper repeated over and over
Then it got louder “LOUISE LOUISE!”
It began shouting, 
Then she felt her body begin to shake
“No!” she cried  “No!”
‘It’s alright Sarah… it’s only a nightmare darling” came the voice of her mother
“Shhhh” said her father “It’s alright, we’re here now.”  He smiled down at her.
Her tense muscles relaxed…
She smiled up at them feeling safe and shut her eyes again
Just to wake up back against the door to the dungeon cold and dark
“It’s only a dream she whispered” to herself
She was right… It was only just a dream
What she didn’t know was… which dream was the reality
The lights flickered on and there was the beast
She felt she couldn’t breathe
“It’s only a dream” she repeated
Somehow this proved to be of no comfort to her
Something was wrong
She felt an uneasy sinking feeling
“My name is not Sarah….”
She was trapped with no way out
Cornered up against the door helpless
She screamed a dreadful scream
And the beast devoured her
