“Book idea”

Posted: November 20, 2012 in Uncategorized

I awaken with a start. My mind is racing trying to figure out how I got here. Speaking of, where is here? I look around, squinting, trying to see anything. The only source of light is a candle on the other side of the room. I try to sit up, but my efforts are quickly subdued. I try to move my arms but can’t, I have been bound, but to what I am uncertain. Suddenly I hear footsteps echoing throughout the room.

            “Hello?” I call out into the abyss. Silence.

My heart starts beating; quickly scanning the room desperately searching for anything recognizable in this darkness.

            “Is anyone there?” I shout, knowing there will be no response.

            Suddenly it hits me. I am not lying down. I am vertical. The footsteps draw nearer; as they do the bindings along my wrist tighten. My heart is pounding against my chest. I can’t see anything. I can only hear the footsteps….
