Chasing the light at the end of a tunnel created by the oppressive foliage, pressing deeper into the belly of this forest in search of somewhere to turn around at? Neither appealing nor a choice, since there’s no one, no signal – no way to find out where he was. Edgy, he daren’t leave the car, not even when the next turn revealed gates padlocked with chains.
Beyond, a stone driveway led up to a looming castle guarded by three.
His eyes widened.
He knew this place.
A lifetime ago, he’s been here, lost, in a world going down in flames.
