My heart beat wildly in my chest, I could feel the air around me go stale. The taste of metal on my tongue alerted me to a static charge in the air. A burst of lighting shot through the dark, followed by a thunderous boom. I didn’t move. Death stared at me, his dark skin matching his black cloak in the shadows.
“Why are you here?” I asked bravely.
His eyes grew even darker as he stared at me. “You already know why I am here.” He walked closer, the air growing colder with his every step.I could see my breath in the air now. The lighting streaked the sky above me, lighting the darkness, outlining the figure of the dark man. He reached for me, his cold fingers traced down the bare skin on my arm. The icy touch froze my blood, and my breathing became labored. He was going to kill me.
