Chapter 2

A Chapter by Isemay

The black mist drove him forward. The agony of not being able to breathe and not being able to die was more than he could bear. Olthon would pay for this. Vezar stumbled. The elf knew he could feel pain and exhaustion. This agony and indignity was planned.

The prison he’d been driven into was like a maze, the corridor twisted and wound inside the mountain. When he reached the center they were waiting for him. His crown was held in the hands of a dwarf and he snarled at the stumpy creature. An open coffin of steel and glass stood open on a raised platform, as if he would be on display.

“I will not allow this,” Vezar growled. “I am a King. I am not some-” The black mist pressed against him from behind smothering his words.

“The coffin is the only safe place for you Vezar Edra, King Undying.” Olthon lifted his chin proudly.

The mist drove him forward and when he tumbled into the coffin he could breathe. But the mist solidified forming a mask over his face which a dwarf promptly affixed to the bottom of the coffin. Olthon leaned in tying an amulet around his neck that made his thoughts hazy and muddled.

“He will not be able to escape this place.”

“Close it, seal him in. Let us be done with it.”

Vezar couldn’t tell who of the men, elves, and dwarves were speaking, but when the lid closed he began to beat on it. The horror of knowing he would be sealed in alone lent him strength, he tried with all his might to break the thick glass as they warded it. Heavy suffocating sleep began to steal over him.

“Place the crown on the pedestal to raise the stone and seal it.”

Darkness closed over him. He resisted sleep for as long as he could, the fury and bitterness fueling him. But in the darkness, as exhausted as he was, he could not resist for long.

omg, that is a huge fear of mine, being buried alive. This chapter is an intriguing hook, with so many unanswered questions.
