Chapter 4 – Something Awakens continued…

 Something Awakens

A misty haze overshadows the room and although the experience is surreal, I remain very much aware of my surroundings.  An electrical current continues to surge through my body and is pulling me back toward the portal that remains open just beyond my reach.  If I could escape this nightmare I would turn and exit through the portal, never to seek the unknown again.  However a pair of dark olive colored hands maintains a tight hold of my shoulders.  I stand face to face with a supernatural creature with whom I am unable to communicate with.  I am frozen in fear and far removed from my colleagues and the underground fortress that led me to this place.  Terrified that once I leave this room I will have no way of finding my way back.  I only pray that my colleagues do not try and follow me.  Whatever happens, I know that I am on my own!  I stand silent, trying not to utter a sound.  I continue to focus on my breathing and refuse to show the fear that now envelopes my entire being; instead I wait for my captors to initiate the first move…

As the others try to make sense of the complex computer system, I make my way over to the fixed panel where the creature disappeared.  First I run my hand along the edges, then across the inside portion of this massive fixed plate.  As I do so, my hand pushes through disappearing before my own eyes. I immediately pull my hand back, only to repeat this action several times.  I ask myself if what I am witnessing is real, or is it an illusion put in place to ward of any unsuspecting visitors?  Still I must know, I did not come this far to run away; besides chances are none of us are leaving this place.  All that is left now is too peer into this void or to retreat, never to know what awaits on the other side.  Dr. Lutz catches sight of me as I challenge my fears and finally muster the courage to see our inevitable fate. Realizing what I am about to do the doctor shrieks “No”, but it is too late!  I place my head beyond the room that exists beneath our world and as I do so I am pulled into another realm, thus finding myself in another room; one that is beyond the grips of reality.

Something Awakens 

The presence of the creature was made real by the hold he had on Dr. Lutz, still he was somehow able to cross beyond a fixed panel.  His body dissipated beyond our grasp.  Samuel and I take account of the room, while Josef attends to Dr. Lutz.  The Doctor is battered and bruised but he is no worse for ware.  Samuel concerns have become a reality for all of us; we fear that we will never leave this vast underground cavern.  Here lies something greater then ourselves and what we uncovered is not of our world.  The computers are so technologically advanced, that they are way beyond the working knowledge of the four of us.  We dare not touch anything, as our actions may initiate something we cannot stop…

The hand reached down from steel rafters that support a massive vaulted ceiling.  This is not the same beast we encountered earlier. This creature has limbs and can stand erect and has taken hold of another member of our exploration team.  Samuel readies his weapon and raises it slowly trying not to alert the attention of the creature.  The Creature looks into the eyes of Dr.Lutz before tossing him to the ground like a rag doll, he then jumps onto the floor and takes account of the room.  This creature is large and stands well over seven feet tall and fixes his gaze upon Samuel.  I whisper to Samuel to wait, “your single action will be certain death to all!”  Samuel keeps his weapon pointed at the creature; his blackened eyes pierce though us and then he slowly turns and walks toward a  fixed panel on the wall before disappearing from our sight?
