We slowly Make our way through the dark garden. Only in leggings and a sweater with knifes and daggers covering every bare inch.
Mia steps in front as we slowly make our way through the tall hedges that make up the maze garden. Mia and me have both memorized it so we can try to find the center.
Mia has a grin lighting up her face as we walk slowly making our way into the center. The thing inside me has awoken and is pushing trying to get free.
I use all my mental strength to hold it down. The closer we come to the center the more the creature thrashes. Mia looks over at me like she's trying to look for something.
" you alright there Lyra?" She asks her black hair shinning in the moonlight. I nod " all good. Now let's find this thing" I say not even knowing what 'this thing' is.
The maze is thinning as we make our way to the center. I see a stone temple and we both rush to it thinking we found something.
We came here just for fun to find out what rider is hidding but now that I'm here I feel like something else brought me here. Something larger and something alive.
The stone temple is marble and has strong looking stone blocks making up the pullers holding the roof. The roof is marble too with splashes of black and grey in it.
Where the light hits it sparkles like its inlaid with diamonds. In the center is a well like thing. It's dark brown wood with carvings on it.
I make my way to it the thing inside me writhering and screaming. Begging to get out. I hold it down. I run my fingers lightly over the wood and the strange markings. Mia comes up beside me.
" some strange language from the past?" She whispers. The garden is so quiet that you feel the need to whisper. I nod "maybe" I push my thumbs into twin groves and something clicks.
I jump up as the ground starts to shake and the temple starts to vibrate. The wooden well shoots bright light and I take a step forward. Then another.
Mia is right beside me as I peer over the edge. Right into darkness. A hand shoves my back and I fall. Over and over down and down. Farther and farther. Till everything slows.
I open my eyes to find myself in a field of flowers. I gasp and in that moment I forget to hold the thing inside me down. It bursts up and out. It tears and rips and cuts. It pulls me open.
It fills me with flames. It's never ending pain. I can't think. I can't breath. All I can do is scream. I don't feel anything but the flames consuming me.
I grab at my throat trying to get it out but it just builds. And builds. I scream my throat broken and tired. I see black dots and slowly fade into oblivion.
I'm happy to run from the flames eating me.
When I wake I'm on a blanket with my sweater off and someone shouting the words don't process. I open my mouth and gasp my hands clutching the grass. I turn my head. The fields are on fire. Red.
Orange. Yellow. Blue. Flames are eating and consuming every bit of land they can. I'm in a circle of fire that's burning bright, hot and fast. I look up ready to bolt and find rider.
He's leaning over me tears in his eyes. " are you okay?" He asks I nod my eyes wanting to close.
He grabs me and pulls me to his chest and I grab at his neck holding him to me making sure he's okay. " it's okay. Your okay. " he murmurs and I sit up from his lap and turn his head.
He looks at me with those stunning grey sparkling eyes. But I'm not looking at those. I lean in capturing his lips with mine.
He presses me tight against him and one hand moves to the nape of my neck holding me still as he kisses me back. The world around us burns.
