The fog temporarily lifted from my mind. I could think clearly once more. Anna and I made our way down the dark tunnel carefully.
Then the Noise started up again.
Anna abandoned all caution and took off at a dead run. I tried to follow but tripped over something and fell flat on my face. Something compelled me to stop and look for what I had tripped over. I felt around on the floor, my fingers brushed a rectangular object. It glowed slightly as I picked it up.
It was The Book!
The Noise grew louder and jolted me back to reality. I tucked The Book under my arm and ran. It was pitch black and I couldn’t see anything.
“ ANNA !!”
