I finally woke up, after being knocked out for awhile. Rising to my feet I looked around. I was in an odd looking place, mist covered the ground, stone walls and ceiling and I think a stone floor. Sighing, I walked forward slowly, still looking around, getting used to my surroundings. You could hear odd noises from a far off distance like screams and yelps, groans, and moans. The faint smell of burning wood filled the whole place up, I still have no clue where I am. At the end of the hallway was a huge opening, pentagrams we're carved into the doorway all around the frame. I stepped in and got a cold chill running up my spine, the whole room was in mist of thick I could'nt see two feet infront of me. "Hello?!?", I said loudly, hoping someone could hear me and come to my aid. For what awaited ahead of me, I had no clue of.
"Welcome young one", a deep voice blasted out. I looked around, trying to find where the voice was coming from. The mist slowly started to clear, showing what looked to be something in a white, sitting in a stone chair. "W-w-w-what are you?!?", I was panicing as I slowly started to step back. The doorway quickly closed up, becoming just a wall.I bumped up against the wall, in utter shock, "What do you want from me!?", I yelled to him, panting from being so scared.
"It's not what I want from you, It's what you want from me."
"What do you mean? Where am I? What are you?", I asked quickly, looking around him to see for a way out, all that was there was a big carved pentagram above his chair, nothing more.
"You are in what we like to call the "good" side of hell, where all of the grim reapers, souls, and demons walk. I am the brains behind this side, I am the "head cheese" so to speak. The reason you are here is because you have been assigned to become a keeper of souls, also known as the grim reaper." He said it all like it was no big deal, like he's said it a million times, he probably has. "A grim reaper? You must be kidding, I can't be in hell, there is no such thing..", I said as my voice trailed off, looking around, then looking to him, I could'nt believe it..I was."You understand now? Of course you do. We have been tracking you through you're whole life, and today at 6:32 am you died in your sleep. You're actions in life has effected you to being here, understand?" I stood frozen, I just could not believe it, it was like one big nightmare I wanted to wake up from, but o one could wake me. I noded slowly, I understood it all now and I was ready to take on what I was given in the afterlife. "Good, Well now that you're here, let's get started."
