The Journey It was pitch black. Ben was just rousing after being knocked unconscious. How had he got here and, more to the point, where was here? Looking around him, Ben could see nothing. No lights or windows were visible through the darkness. Feeling terrible, Ben slowly got up on his feet and stumbled forward until he hit a wall. He searched the walls for a light switch or someway of escaping from this unknown and terrifying situation. He was unsuccessful. All he found were lumps of moss, and some sharp rocks protruding from the wall. Ben slumped onto the floor and thought about how he could have arrived in this enclosed, lightless room. It was a dismal morning. The weather was being kind to England for the middle of December, but it was a school day towards the end of term. It was quiet in the house. ...read more.

He was about to leave when he saw her. Lying underneath his upturned bed was his mum. Ben tried to pull her out but all of his junk from his desk had pinned her to the floor. Smoke had got into Ben's blood stream and was flowing around his body. He collapsed onto the floor. The room was spinning around. A pair of hands grabbed Ben's mum and hauled her out from beneath the bed. 'Mum!' Ben squeaked. He was weak and slipping into unconsciousness. A different pair of hands grabbed Ben and pulled him towards the door. 'Don't struggle,' a stern, evil voice said. 'You will only make it harder on yourself.' Ben passed out. ...read more.
