UVN - Chapter 4 UNFINISHEDChapter Five
I could hear the soft patter of rain on a roof top somewhere. The sound was soothing, but not enough to deal with the painful headache throbbing in the space behind my eye sockets. Even with my eyes closed and the soft rain, it still felt like someone was inside my head driving nails into that single spot.
I could hear voices somewhere outside the door, a few males mixed with the voice of a female. I suppose they were talking quietly, but every sound hurt my head at that time. I gave a small groan and the voices stopped suddenly. The sound of chairs scraping back and a loud rustling replaced the talking.
After a few moments the door creaked open somewhere to my left. I groaned again as the noise made the headache throb again. A strong hand lifted me up to prop me against the pillows and placed something steaming in my hands.
"Good to know you're finally awake. You've been sleeping for a long time now..." The voice trailed off but I was in slight shock. Opening
UVN - Chapter 3[Escape]
The stale air burned my lungs as I propelled myself up yet another flight of stairs, passing several more doors. I continued running, pushing myself, afraid to open any of them for fear that I would run into more of whatever those creatures were. The primal scream echoed through the stairwell as I ran faster, chest screaming for fresh air, muscles begging for rest as I tried to put as much space between myself and whatever was behind me.
A few more minutes and the stair case ended in another small landing. The only way out was a large wooden door similar to the ones in the rest of the house, but made from a darker, heavier wood. I struggled to pull it open, my bruised arms screaming in protest, raw hands burning as they touched the iron handle. I mustered the last of my strength and gave one last pull.
The door swung open with a groan and I ran outside, another animalistic scream echoing in the night around me. I stopped running,
UVN - chapter 2[Trapped]
There's a dream that just died Outside these walls -
Special and lovely, Tauntingly perfect.
Though your choice was made,
And mine was made for me,
The worst part of it is,
I can see it all.
A rush of ice cold water rushed over my body and I convulsed involuntarily, my back arching up to meet the source of the wave, a piercing scream escaping my lips. I shivered, my body slowly lowering itself back to the stone wall, which seemed warmer now compared to the water. My kimono clung to my body, the loose strands of my soaked hair sticking to my face as I tried to opened my eyes.
The light of the candles was blocked by a figure hovering over me. As my hazy vision cleared I could make out Daedalus, a large bucket hanging from one hand and what looked like a collar with a leash attached, draped around the other.
"Adonai wishes to speak with you."
He grunted as he stooped over, pulling a key ring from his pocket.
UVN - Chapter 1[Madness]
Hey Mr. Ringleader, Let us start the show.
The tent is all set up, and All is ready to go.
Lets watch the acrobats,Perform their crazy tricks.
And hope that the lion tamer,Will get eaten just for kicks.
Watch all of the clowns, Stuff themselves inside that car.
And watch ten elephants altogether, stand on one slim bar.
And look at the jugglers,With their pins and plates and balls
Spinning clockwise around their heads, And hope and pray one falls
And see the daring trapeze artists Swing round, high up in the air
Tempting fate and certain death, Just so we'll all clap and stare
So Mr. Ringleader, Let us start this show
To inspire awe and joy in people
And other things we'll never know.

The alcohol hit my system in a fiery wave, blurring everything around me into oblivion. I didn't feel drunk at first, then suddenly the flame I was watching the Fire Artist create transformed from an amazing cloud of hot fire to the preternatural Phoenix of myths, th
