Prologue - Last Hope

A child that had been kidnapped by a deranged man -ten years of being blindfolded, chained, and tortured later, is rescued by the determination of one man, and a squat team. Now, the teenager is forced to adapt to society, not knowing anything about the modern world or the people in it. Though, once they think they've finally gotten the hang of things, they fear that their deranged captor has returned to plunge them once more into darkness and pain, but this time --from beyond the grave.

I'm lost...
Stuck in this dreadful place..
How long has it been?
I couldn't tell you...
I've been here far too long, 
I've lost track of time...

As days turned to weeks... Weeks turned to months...
..I've tried hard to keep my sanity.

Maybe I'm delusional.
Maybe everyone are just things of my imagination...
Maybe my life isn't real...
... Are you even real?

I've been stuck here, in this dreadful place for as long as I can remember.. though, I can hardly remember why I'm here anymore.. that was so long ago..

Sometimes, I think I might die here.. laying on this cold, hard ground... Stone, I think..

Everything is dark all the time; there's never any light..
Not even when "they" come...
"They" hurt me.. They beat me, cut me and sometimes.. I get poked with things; but I don't dare whimper or cry, because if I make any noise.. I get hit harder.

If I ignore the pain, it isn't so bad..
If I think of something else.. sometimes it doesn't hurt as bad.
Sometimes.. I like to think of things like, if there is something outside of this place... outside of this pain.. this empty life.. this misery...

I bet it's beautiful, whatever it is.. and I wonder if someday.. 
- if someday I'll get to see it..! 
..I hope so..


Oh.. I-I'm sorry.. I forgot to introduce myself..

I'm just someone.. who doesn't remember who they are.

I've been here for, I don't know.. maybe 10 years.. maybe more.. 
So I guess.. that'd make me.. 16 years old.

I don't know if you're listening.. Or if you can even hear me.. but then again, why would you want to?
I'm nobody.. I'm just a shadow.. forgotten long ago.

I just hope you're real, whoever you are..
It feels nice.. 
It feels nice to talk to somebody.. other than myself...
I just wish I could see you.. maybe someday... 

This is the first time I've ever admitted this.. 
...but..


I'm afraid...


I don't want to die.. at least..... not here.. anywhere but in this place..!!
Please.. 
Please! 
..Help me...

You're my only hope...
..the only one that can save me...
Please...
Don't let me die here.. 
Not here.. not in this place... 


Oh.. 
...Oh, no.. I can hear them.
I hear their feet - light tapping sounds...
..and the chains they use to restrain me..

Please..If you're there..
...Please.. 
Help a lost soul.. find it's way home...


....Amen.

The End
