Nothingness. You struggle to hold on to your life but your attempt feels all but futile. The pain of a thousand needles fills your body, from the depths of your gut outwards to every appendage, overpowering you. As all feels lost you begin to make out the sounds of a man. Faint at first it grows louder as your vision begins to clear up. Splash!
“Do it again, more water! GET THEM UP!”. You barley make out the deep voice as your vision begins to blur again. You try to move but you feel restrained, as if you are being held up from both sides. SPLASH! “WHERE IS THE TOME!?”.
