They can't find us in the dark.
My eyes once full of life now empty and emotionless, the only sounds are the harsh ragged breathing of my lungs. A sticky liquid drips down my chest, forming a sea of red at my feet. Peering nervously from my hiding place, so close, I'm almost there. Soon. I tell myself. Very Soon.
Willing myself to gain the hearing skills of a bat, I listen closely. Only Silence, perfect.
Taking a weary step forward, onto the softly illuminated tiles a pale neon green glow bathes my body as I approach the portal.
