Kai slowly opened her eyes whilst coming out of the darkness. Her brownish-yellow eyes immediately coming across a giant white door in front of her. Its golden handles sparkled brightly, causing Kai's eyes to squint. Her head craned higher as the doubled doors seemed to grow and tower over her, making her even smaller than she felt before. A soft glow radiating from the doors.
She stared and examined it from afar before Kai heard muffled sounds, compelling her to look around her surroundings to locate the source.
The floor beneath her bare feet were checkered and polished with black and white tiles. The black reminded Kai of obsidian and the white reminding her of white marble. Her eyes slowly moved from observing the floors to examine the figures that stood before her. They all stood away from each other but surrounded Kai, a unique tapestry above each of them.
There were 8 that Kai had counted. Each with their own unique symbol and colours that corresponded with them.
Returning her attention to the white doors, she felt compelled to walk forward to open it. She didn't remember walking to it and almost as if she teleported to it.
Or did it teleport to her?
Raising her thin arms to open it, her small hands hovered over the doors' handles. The golden handles were very intricately done with laurel leaves and grooves, it's overall size much larger than Kai's own hands.
Before Kai grasped the door handles, Kai heard whispering behind her.
Turning around, Kai saw a door that was similar to the white door. Instead of white, however, it was black with silver polished handles. Instead of a soft light glowing over it, Kai noted the shadow that overhanging it.
Kai turned her body's attention towards it then, the doors opening themselves as she did. Black mist spilled out of the door, leaking through the cracks of the door.
Through the darkness of the door in front of Kai, she saw a faint figure. She widened her eyes as the figure wasn't there before.
It grinned maliciously before it disappeared into the darkness when Kai blinked.
At the same time, the door opened itself fully with a loud BAM! causing Kai to flinch at the sound as the sound rang through the entire room. It then sent a bellow of black mist out. Harsh, quick whispers followed that went through Kai's entire body, overwhelming her.
With her mind clouded and being lured by the whispering, Kai's body moved forwards and towards the black door. The whispering continued and grew in intensity, persuading her to join them.
Her arm slowly raised up and her fingers went to reach as if it to grab the extending mist.
Peering through the darkness within the doors, Kai could see an outline of a figure. Was it the same figure as before, she wasn't sure. The form reminded Kai of a small child and as she got closer she could make out the figure's features. It had short blond hair with the brightest blue eyes and a grin.
Before she could get any further, Kai heard a muffled cry behind her. She turned around when her arm was grabbed firmly in desperation, pulling her away from the door.
A boy with long raven hair stood before her. His violet eyes standing out from his pale complexation. His mouth moved but there was no sound. He tugged her more towards him and the white door behind him.
Kai let him pull her until....she remembered the figure standing by the black doors.
Kai turned in order to see the child once more but when she did, there was no child.
In the child's place, there was a taller figure with the same features as the child.
Except the bright blue eyes were no long there. Instead, the eyes were replaced with a murky blue that made Kai remember the darkest depths of the sea; the fine line where the colour could be mistaken for the darkest blue that appeared black.
The grin the child had, Kai compared, was playful. The one in front of her was a much more sinister and wicked grin.
Her body turned cold and she shivered to her bone. The tugging on her arm became more and more desperate to the point Kai thought her arm was going to be dislocated.
Turning towards the violet-eyed boy, Kai jolted when she felt something cold grab her other arm.
Her head snapped to the other side and she saw the shadows from the door infecting the room and had grabbed her arm, wrapping their tendrils around her. Looking at her hand that was being swallowed by the darkness, Kai looked at the boy and the white door, noticing it was open.
The violet-eyed boy and several others called out to her and tried to pull her back. The arm that the boy held was ripped away when the darkness yanked her away towards the shadows.
Reaching out to the group, Kai could feel the shadows creeping onto her...infecting her.
Her hand that had reached out to her friend became infected from the darkness; turning it black. Kai pulled her arm away at the last second, afraid the darkness would affect her friends and the violet eyed boy.
Then at that moment, Kai felt the floor beneath her dip and then break.
Falling through the hole in the ground, everything started to get smaller and disappear. Kai's brown eyes looked away from boy and the other figures screaming and reaching out to her, before she stared at the ceiling with a daze.
The ceiling was nothing but darkness as far as the eyes could see. It was as if she was staring into a deep void.
Feeling numb, Kai closed her eyes while the darkness consumed her...
