It was risky but there was this overwhelming desire to just do it. What if something went wrong? She was being silly. Nothing could go wrong. She made her way through the path, toward the ivy covered towers, and through to the castle doors. Pushing hard against them, she entered the chamber, cautiously looking about, hoping to find nothing or no one that would put a stop to her quest. As she turned again, there he stood. Her heart stopped, as a sinister sneer crept across his face. She encountered the one thing she never gave a second thought. Death.
