She stopped to look at the wall on her right. There were strange engravings in it. She blew on it and ran her hand over it to try and clear some of the dust. It was…[Read more]
Cathy was looking into the pit with dread, remembering all of her nightmares about it, when a rustling noise in the bush behind her made her jump. She, along with the rest of her friends, turned around to face whatever was about to jump out and kill them.

Riley pinched her nose. WHY in the name of FIDDLYPUMPKINS did she agree to journey through a SEWER?!? It was all GROSS in in there. Full of foul-smelling dross and who knows what else.

Riley was practically jumping with joy. Cathy had just told them about how two days before she came to school she went to a fortune teller who told her that “a great secret awaits you in the depths of the pit.” Cathy had also been having the same nightmare for the past month. In it Cathy was running from a dark fog and then fell into…[Read more]

The whole class nodded as one.

Cathy sat with Riley in the dining hall picking at her breakfast of roasted ham and a cheese omelet. She had gotten barely any sleep last night. After Riley’s almost abduction, she couldn’t get back to sleep for awhile. And once she did, it was a fitful sleep with her waking up a thousand times.

Cathy was running.
She was running for her life.
