Alarmed, shocked, worried. My heart was a speedy cheetah leaping swiftly for its prey. Where was I? What vile villain led me here to this abandoned warehouse? Artful rats, determined to besiege boxes stacked like sturdy towers, nibbled their way into the goods. Every instinct in my body was urging me to leave, but curiosity grew like a flower inside me. The sprinting wind howled deliberately as rain poured down on the coarse metal roof. Suddenly, the door slammed shut! I was trapped, I saw a flicker of miniscule light travelling towards me, creating my worst nightmare.
