Darkness Incarnate - prologue

<br />The darkness was suffocating.<br /><br /><br />Hajaar clumsily stepped into another room, as pitch<br />black as the others he had entered, yet something<br />in this chamber seemed to gnaw at his mind.<br /><br /><br />He couldn't stop trembling. Tears ran down his<br />eyes, and he used his last vestiges of will to stop <br />himself urinating. The dimming flame in his hand <br />shook as he tossed it from side to side, wary of<br />what might burst from the darkness.<br /><br /><br />Why the hell did he have to come to this place?<br />Why did he and his companions allow themselves <br />to come to this place, lured by the prospect of gold?<br /><br /><br />Now they were dead, and Hajaar knew he was next.<br /><br /><br />Something scratched the wall behind him. Hajaar <br />turned instantly, eyes wde with fear.<br /><br /><br />He heard chains rattle to the left. He spun so quickly<br />his torch burned out. <br /><br /><br />&quot;GODS CURSE THIS PLACE!&quot; <br /><br /><br />Hajaar's cry of frustration and fear echoed inside the<br />ancient ziggurat as he threw the still warm wood to <br />the floor.<br /><br /><br />There was a faint moan that seemed to come from<br />every direction. <br /><br /><br />Hajaar dropped to the floor, holding himself and crying<br />insanely. He didn't even notice his bladder finally break.<br /><br /><br />More rattles of chains sounded - but this time they were<br />closer.<br /><br /><br />With a terror and timidity never performed by man <br />before, Hajaar looked up, and knew It was there.<br /><br /><br />All he could see in the darkness was the glint of a <br />scythe end, and as the life drained from Hajaar the<br />faint whisper of a long forgotten language echoed through<br />the ziggurat.<br /><br /><br />The darkness was suffocating.<br /><br /><br /><br /><br />
