A Lady and A Freak

Chapter 2: The Temple

. Her black eyes followed the glow with fascination, even though it only lasted a few seconds since thats how long it takes for her to light up her candle.

One of her professors once told her than reactive runes are mostly used on vaults, more of a defensive spell than offensive spell.

”Ode to the fallen, ” Xiao channeled her magic into a poem she read in class. She didn remember the composer. ”Do you hear my woe? ”

The runes began glowing again, illuminating the corridor. If she turned right or left, shell end up in one of the towers, so her destination is to go straight ahead to the middle tower. Shes not sure why she wants the middle tower, but she doesn mind dying as long as its in here. Well, the middle tower is where all the important things are, right?

”Please take away my pain and my sorrows, ” She continued to chant as she walked deeper into the temple, her light footsteps echoed. ”And bestow me peace. ”

The runes are still glowing once she stopped singing, and without much thought, she reached out to touch a glowing letter. It doesn burn, so she gasped in realization. Glowing runes are usually warnings, and they
e hot to the touch to keep away the intruders.

Here, its just normal, stone cold as the stone its written into. So, the Silverin temple is designed to keep whatevers inside from going outside, going as far as to warn them to stay put?

The runes stopped glowing once more, and Xiao took in a deep breath to compose herself from being too excited about this place.

Then, she marches into the darkness with her little candle.

After a minute, she heard the sound of metal scratching on the ground, and its coming from the direction shes heading.

”Hello? ” Her voice echoed on the wall, but no answer came back.

She continued moving forward, but eventually, she found light at the end of the corridor. Its the middle tower where the roof is close to non-existent. The young witch placed the candles in a candelabra at the side of the rooms entrance, and she stepped into the golden sunlight. In front of her, a seemingly bottomless large hole that had fallen into the floor. She gazed down, and couldve sworn she could faintly see her death spiraling downward.

Falling to her death in a void of black seems nice.

Shivering a little, she marched onward towards the hole. Xiao stopped two steps away from the hole when she heard it again…

The cling clang of steel chains rattling as its owner dragged it through the temple.

Every inch of her body told her to run away, but shes too intrigued and too determined to back down now.

She took a look into the hole and saw shinny silver chains connected to a pair of thick arms of the monster as it slowly walked into the light. A pair of blood red eyes looked up at her, seemingly glow in dark while the face is still hidden in the shadows.

Hes a demon, her mind supplier her.

”Do you seek death, tiny human? ” The demon growled.

”Yes. ” Xiao answered without a pause.
