On the hill, a temple, very old and what seems abandoned, I look to it and I stare endlessly, then I see something happening which I can't explain, a shrouded figure points his finger at me, almost wanting me to come to him. I don't want to, but I have to, due to some dark forces surrounding this curious case.. I walk towards the temple, the shrouded figure suddenly gone, then I look into the temple.
As I walk in, I take a good look around, seeing charred, mutilated bodies and ripped-off body parts, I get freaked out by this but decide to walk in further as I am too curious for my sake. While I walk in, the door slams shut behind me, startling me. Yet I refuse to give up.. Dark thoughts come into my mind with every step I take deeper into this god forsaken place. While I am too busy with placing the thoughts, I stumble upon something unusual, a survivor, a woman with big wounds on her legs, appearing to be made by a claw of some sort.
The woman begins to talk to me, slowly, very lightly: " Don't let it get to you.. it's the worst thing I ever saw in my life, it.." -The woman begins to bleed more heavily with the moment- " has a dark armour, yet the being itself... is nothing.. and everything. But it has a weakness.. the only weapon that can be used against it is-.." The woman passes out, then to realise she has fallen to her wounds, and begins to rot immedeatly. Something very strange is happening here, but I decide to walk further. I stumble upon another thing.. a hide, from the thing, and a half-decayed man with a knife in his hand. I touch the hide from this.. thing, feeling vaguely unnatural, yet familiar. I decide to keep it and walk further, then to stumble upon a cellar door. I open it and a foul scent of death, rot, decay and ashes comes out of it. I slowly decend to the inner part of the temple, just to look around me, seeing bodies of fallen priests, yet you can only see that from a necklace with a cross attached to it and the priestly gowns, the rest is beyond recognition. The meat ripped from the bone, big bites in the flesh, alot of blood on the cold stones below me. I get freaked out, yet I walk on.. and in the inner sanctum, I see it, the thing, feasting upon the high priest. I think that this has gone completely out of hand, and try to walk away sneakingly, yet the thing turns around and speaks with a dark, hollow voice: "Your curiosity appears to be your biggest problem, and your mortal life will soon come to an end." I turn around and look at the thing, the room filled with the fallen spirits, the woman that spoke to me earlier stands beside me. The only thing I hear.. "Hope.. Hope..." I try to realise what they mean, as the thing comes towards me and spreads it's wings, the beak further open than normal, the claws ready to attack and the black eyes filled with but one thing, the scent of another dead to give him powers. I suddenly come to the conclusion.. The weapon, it is faith! Have faith in everything that is good, to have faith.. that the forces of evil will be vanquished. So I fall to my knees, I begin to pray, beginning to have faith in the end of this god forsaken thing. The spirits begin to affect whatever that thing's soul has left inside it, ripping it even more apart. The thing begins to take a peg back or two.. then stops and falls to the ground, screaming in agony. Then it lets out a loud roar before lying down, utterly defeaten. I make a sigh of relief, but the roar has maken the temple trembling, seeing the current state, I would have but two minutes to get out... I quickly run out, ascending the cellar to the, where used to be charred and mutilated bodies, are now gone, and the door is open, I run towards it, going out the temple and fall to the ground, heavily breathing and look behind me, the temple collapsing. I stand up and want to begin walking, but something taps me on my shoulder. I look over it scared and see the woman. "We can now rest in peace.. yet your job is not yet done.." The woman disappears and I stand there.. wondering.
