It was dark there were no souls about. I seemed to be in some sort of cave. Then suddenly there was a bright flash which illuminated the cave. I heard a deep drowning voice it sounded like ‘MOOOOOO.’ I heard it again this time it sounded as if it was coming from deep inside the cave. Then something startled me it came from the mouth of the cave which was right behind me. It sounded as if the cave had just closed, so there was no escape for me. I was contemplating what to do. Should I go deeper into the cave? I then suddenly remembered the sound that came from deep inside the cave; I had made a decision to go down the cave. As I was merrily trotting down the cave I noticed a book which lay near a skeleton.
It looked like a diary. I slowly crept towards the skeleton which was rotting and looked very old. The book was held tightly round the chest of the decomposing skeleton. I lifted one arm which turned into dust, ‘ACHOO’ I sneezed the entire skeleton turned into rubble. The skull ricocheted off the wall and onto the floor, the skull turned the eye sockets were facing me then I noticed something lodged into the eye it was a diamond the size of my fist. I picked it up I could see my reflection a thousand times. I put the diamond in my pocket.
I then remembered the diary I kneeled down onto one knee picked up the diary. The first page was ripped out so I opened to the second page it had the date ’30 July 1945′ and the initials ‘A.S.’ I was mystified to see what was written on it. ‘The demon pushed us in to the labyrinth and said we must get out in 5 days or our fates will be inevitable.’ Reading this passage lead me to believe I am in a labyrinth. I wearily turned the page terrified for what I may find. Half of the page was ripped out.
At the bottom of the page the date was ’34 August 1945′ there was a small passage written ‘it is our last day and my friend Ghufran had decided to turn to cannibalism. He bit me on the neck as I slept. I manage to escape with just a bleeding neck.’ I turned the page now eager to read on. But there was just one sentence which said ‘my inevitable fate has arrived.’ I dropped the book. I decided to find my way through this labyrinth. As I went down I noticed a torch on the floor. I examined it closely and saw that there was no bulb. Then I remembered the flash when I first arrived in the labyrinth could this have been it? If it is then it must mean there is someone else in the cave with me. Could it be Ghufran?
Also what was that strange ‘MOOOOOO’ sound earlier on? There were so many unanswered questions. I then saw a small shadow. ‘WOOF WOOF’ barked a dog. I ran up to see it. There was a left or right turn I decided to go left. I walked up five metres then I saw a vague shadow. I called out ‘who’s there’ there was no answer. I called out again ‘hello anyone there.’ Then the shadow seemed to come closer. I looked at the shadow mystified. Then I saw a chain dangling down attached to the neck of a deformed dog. It didn’t look happy to see me. The dog growled. I took a couple of steps backwards and then turned around at the speed of lightning. I ran back. The dog was chasing me. There was a right or left turn or I could go straight. I decided to go straight. There was a jump ahead of me. I took in a deep breath.
Then I made a leap over the hole in the ground. The dog fell in to the spikes which were at the bottom of the hole. I then realised this place was not as deserted as I first thought. I ran my hand through my hair thinking what to do next. Then I felt something wet on my hair. It felt wet. Then there was another drop on my hand. I looked up. There was a leak coming from the top. I put my hand up to see if I could make a bigger hole. Then the top started to cave in. I stepped back.
The roof came down blocking the path, so this meant there was no turning back. Now I was starting to get scared almost terrified. I started to make my way down the labyrinth, now I more worried because I must think which way to go. Then there was a slight rumbling sound. I thought it may be an earthquake. Then the rumbling stopped. I ran forward there was the deformed dog with the chain in front of me. I was terrified. I knew the dog was going to catch me and kill me, so I did what my father always told me to do ‘be a man son be a man.’ So I stood there waiting for my horrific death, but as I stood there I noticed something. The dog had a smaller head next to it connected to its neck which looked like cows head. This explained the ‘MOOOOOO’ sound. Then suddenly the dog took once slash at me and ‘URGH.’
‘ARGH!’ I woke up screaming in my bed. ‘It was a dream just a dream’ I shouted. The rest of the night I could not get any sleep. Then I realised the time, its time for school. My mate John walked me up to school. I did not tell him about my dream he will think I’m crazy. My first lesson was history. I sat down on my chair. The teacher spoke softly and said ‘students we are going on an expedition to a cave which they discovered newly. It is compulsory that you all go.’ I thought to myself ‘NO’ this can’t just be a coincidence. Then I remembered the diamond. I put my hand in my pocket and found the diamond ‘NOOOO…
