‘TENEBROUS TOWER’ #2 – NO LIGHT


Dark light

For Part 1 click here….

He was shaking terribly and kept repeating the same words…’This is a nightmare…This is a nightmare!’

Suddenly there was silence…

He lifted his head and looked around…it was too dark to see anything!

Maybe it was a dream…a very dark dream.

Slowly he tried to stand up when he felt a cold touch on his shoulder…his heart turned into stone and for a few seconds he felt there was no air to breath.

This would be his end…

…and many years from now, someone lost as him would find his body and assume he was a homeless who starved to death.

He turned and saw an old man holding on to a half-broken stick with great difficulty to breath:

There is no way out of here…if that’s what you’re thinking about”, said the old man.

Who are you and what’s happening?”

The wooden floors started moving…the walls were breaking all around them and the tower roof opened up to the dark sky with the full moon looking down into oblivion.

What’s happening?”, James was shouting as loud as possible trying to hold on to the window seal.

the old man raised his arms to the moon letting his broken stick drop between the floor cracks…

There is no light at the end…just darkness…”, said the old man.

All of a sudden the floor was back to its old self, the walls stopped moving and the hole in the roof closed slowly, leaving the room in total darkness. James was still holding on to the window seal with his whole body trembling.

The old man sat down on the floor and covered his body with a blanket.

You too belong to it, now”, he whispered.

Belong to who?”, asked James scared.

To the Tower…we will never leave…”, he said closing his eyes and resting his head on the rough wall.

‘Tenebrous Tower’ #1


Haunted

He looked down into nothing…

The night covered everything with a dark silk blanket, that seemed to look more like a prison than a shelter.

All he wanted was to close his eyes and rest his body after a long day of walking in the sun…the journey he has chosen wasn’t easy but the destination will be his fulfilment of a promise he made a long time ago.

He looked at the old ceiling…it could collapse on him any minute. It was broken and old, the walls around the room were a thing of the past, you could see the metal that was holding the building together, rusty and ready to give up…

He didn’t think this through…he could have walk until the next village.

He was too tired and his feet were full of bleeding blisters…

The old façade of the Tower made him stop and he felt somehow drawn to it…he spent too much time exploring the inside and now he had no choice than to spend the night here.

He placed his sleeping bag in the corner, turned off the flash light and slowly closed his eyes.

it was a full moon and the silence around captured him into a deep sleep, until a suave voice whispered in his ears…”You are mine!”

His heart stopped and he couldn’t move…he was afraid to open his eyes..

This could be a nightmare…but it wasn’t!

He raised his head as he felt a cold touch over his body…he saw no one.

Suddenly a massive shadow was climbing up the wall from the corner of the window…slowly getting closer and closer…

He couldn’t stand up from the panic…

He pulled his knee up, closed his eyes and buried his face, continuously repeating the same thing…

This is a nightmare….This is a nightmare…This is a nightmare”.

…TO BE CONTINUED

‘Rabbit hole’ Day #3


The rabbit hole
The rabbit hole

The sound of hefty steps above made him stop…

It must have been his imagination.

The heavy storm was bashing the windows,

Someone left it open…but no one else lived there.

Through the darkness of the night he saw a shadow…

followed by a bitter cold touch of his shoulders,

He turned, frightened to the bone.

The shade of a creature was swallowed by the ground…

Descending with great speed to the bottom of his feet,

He saw the old and broken past…

Looking down the rabbit hole!


This post it’s a response to Andy’s Dark | Side | Thursday

I hope you’ve enjoyed a few seconds of fright-night:)

‘Inspiration from across…’


Inspiration from across...
Inspiration from across…

This week two of my assignments for Blogging 101 were to visit and comment on other blogs and be inspired:) Easy, you might say…I agree…only if they weren’t so many amazing bloggers out there who inspire others:)

The assignment – Get Inspired By the Neighbours

Since joining the Blogosphere, I’ve discovered so many extraordinary people who amaze me every day with their talent and creativity…it feels like I embark every day on a journey of self discovery and I always end up with a great achievement…might that be a new way of writing…a new perspective of a landscape or a new challenge to follow!

Challenges…how I love them:)

I’ve always loved a good challenge…something that brings me out of my comfort zone and makes me look at the world from a different angle!

So, today I’ve decided to mention a few of the people who have been an inspiration and who keep me coming back for more:)

Lucile and her inspirational Photo101 Rehab challenge, from which I can’t stay away so I’ve become a happy patient of The Clinic…I definitely recommend it, if you present the following symptoms as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy,: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

Andy and his Dark | Side | Thursday…again a great writing or photo challenge that takes you across, to a different point of view. So, if you enjoy a writing challenge or if you’re just curious of what could be on the other side, join us:)

Jennifer and her amazing blog that it’s just a living proof of her talent and determination! She hosts a weekly photo challenge, One Word Photo Challenge, that I’ve recently joined because I am still developing my endless love for the beautiful visual that is life:) Take a peak and join the boat that sails away to the unknown…


Life is indeed beautiful…

…and every day can be your chance to discover the world…share what you love the most and be a better version of yourself!

As I seem to finish most of my posts with a quote, from this week I’ve added a new column to my blog, called Red Echo Date, where I will share weekly, one quote that describes an experience I’ve lived or just words that I can’t seem to shake away:)

The word is ‘Dry’


Once upon a time ‘dry’ was for autumn…

When leaves fall

…and trees hit rock bottom.
