Stairway

I feel on the edge of death, and now have to climb a staircase to get to this house. Which could have the answers. This time, the only way is up. So, I start walking. 

The night is darker. It's nearly pitch black. I keep tripping on the steps as I walk up. But I see the white building, the light at the end. I hope. I pray that this place has the answers. I feel 99% sure that it does. The feeling of hope surges me forward a little quicker. 

I stop, turn around and look down. Darkness. It makes me feel numb. I turn back and walk as quickly as my legs can take me. 

Finally, I reach the house. A massive white house with black doors and silver handles. I grab a handle, and push into the house, I shut the door behind me. I feel instantly warm inside and don't really care for much now. I'm inside, in the warmth. 

I lie on my left side and fall instantly into a deep sleep. 

The End
