Behind The Gate

A gate. A padlock. No key. No one knows what is behind the gate. Do they want to find out? Who knows. What will happen if they find out? Who knows. But one girl decided to see for herself. And then everything in the world changed.

Prologue

Legend has it behind the ancient, rusty forgotten gate lies many secrets. Secrets which the village people should never unveil. For many years people attempted to unlock the gate, but nothing would give. Only a key would open the padlock, which helped bind the silver chains around the steel bars. It was unbeknown to the village people of the gate ever to be opened. All they know is that it is hidden deep in the forest and its key is lost, and never to be found.

 Rumours spread that dragons, witches, pirates and dinosaurs roamed the forest, but no one had dared go that far too actually find out. People went in groups to jump the gate, however they did not return. Some people said they were used as sacrifices and forced to watch others being burned alive. Some people said fear got the better of them and hung themselves from tree branches, leaving their shoes underneath them to mark territory. Some even said they were crucified and their bodies were fed to vultures.

 Although all these different stories flew around one girl decided to go in alone. No one knew what she was planning, they all thought she was joking on and being sarcastic about it. But when the moment she jumped the gate everything changed…
