The door opened...

Jyll looked down at corby, wondering what happened. She did not think what was left of the soup would help, but she set the bowl near corby just incase.  She was starting to dread the living room, because the aftermath of everthing seemed to end up here, and it made her so sad. As no one seemed to notice her, she sliped out of the room, ignoring the warning flamara had given her the night of the knife incedent. Thinking about all that had happened since she had arrived at the hideout, she started up the starcase,  and found her self on the seacond floor. She sat down on the hard floor and tryed to distract her self with a math problem she etched in the dust. Fealing a slight movement, she turend around and saw a door opening, as if inviteing her in. the door had a strange, changing picture of some sort on it. It opend a bit wider, as if insiting she came into the room. Even though alarm bells were ringing thruoghout her, she stood up and started for the door. It looked like a good place to escape worries.

        Jyll steped inside and looked around the room as the door softly closed behind her with a quiet but menicing click. It was was completely empty except for a glowing cloud of golden dust. a voice, apparently comeing from the cloud, asked her "what she most desired" A bit unesey, jyll hesitated, then replyed with her speach bubble. "i wish for my rabbit." jyll thought for a moment. "and i wish to have something to help coby."  Her rabbit and a small vial of light drifted out from the colud and into her hands. dumfounded, jyll looked at the objects in her hand and started for the door. it would not open. turning, she looked back at the cloud. It seemed to be expecting something. A voice said "the payment?" Confused, jyll looked up at it.  Again, the voice reapetd "do you have the payment?"  still confused, jyll slowly shoke her head no.           "Then so be it" the voice boomed.  A cold laughter filled the room and the cloud swirlled around her, getting faster and faster, turning a deadly shade of red. Jyll fealt so weak and helples as the cloud engulfed her . Just as jyll was sure the cloud was going to destroy her, she fealt her self being pulled back by something. Jyll then sliped into the darkness of uncontioness.

 

When she awoke, jyll found herself in one of the many halways.  It was dark, yet something even darker loomed in the distance.  She tryed to sit up, but her head buzzed with the suden movment. she flinched as a bright light flooded the hall. at the far end of the hall a living, a living shadow paced back and fourth. fritghtend, jyll looked down at her hands, hopeing the small bit of extra light from her fire fingers would keep the shadow thing away. Starteled, she saw her hand were a thick darkness. With a horror struck look on her face, jyll realised she was a, she was a shadow!...............
