Twilight Chronicles V
The warrior's grip on his sword loosened, and he collapsed in the bloody dirt of the battlefield. He was still hearing the faint sound of the battle and cheers of triumph, and then everything became dark and silent.
The warrior opened his eyes. He was being carried by strong hands. They were flying. Her face was in the shadow, and her enormous wings eclipsed the sun with every movement. He realised that he was in the arms of a Valkyrie. There was shame and sadness - how could he have been beaten? But there was also joy and pride - his fate was fulfilled, he had been picked. The wounds from the battle still hurt, he closed his eyes and drifted off again.
He opened his eyes again, and he was in a dark forest. But he was alive!
"No, you are not," a croaky voice said. Someone lit a lantern with a strange shivering glow and the warrior saw a shadowy figure in front of him, holding a light.
"You are dead. You have to accept it. There is no way back to the world of the living. There’s only the way ahead," said the figure.
"Were are we?" asked the warrior.
"Welcome to the Underworld. You are among the living no more, and this is how your journey finally starts. You were chosen by someone, and now you are here. Come, don't hesitate, take this light, or you will fade away!"
The warrior took the lantern and felt a surge of power coursing through him. The ethereal and dreamy feleing fell from his eyes, his head cleared, and shadows crept back to reveal the hooded figure before him.
"Never lose it," the hooded figure said, "or you will become a shadow, and all of this would have been for nothing. Come now, I will show you around!"
The figure turned away and started walking down the path. The warrior looked around in the small clearing that was illuminated by his small lantern, and watched as the tiny light burned at the weaving shadows in the trees, holding the darkness at bay. He felt there were memories of the battlefield, a home and a family, but they were fading. It was a life that he was no longer a part of.
“Let’s go!” the warrior finally said, and followed the figure in the darkness.
