Return to Craiss Caverns

Escaping the Caverns (Self)

Postby Sarah » 04/28/2016 9:36 PM

"You will never escape this place!" Zahhak roared. The cavern was dark and empty. His daughter, Qynn, was headed to the surface. Zahhak wouldn't allow it. She was not going to leave him in this cold stony place alone. Her traitorous mother had tricked him into this prison and so he had taken Qynn for himself. He had replaced her egg with a clever looking stone. Zahhak still didn't know if his past mate knew, and he had learned not to care.

Qynn was breathing too heavily. Her fear was strong, and she knew it was leaving a trail as she climbed out of the caverns. Her father, the demon of the caverns, would do anything in his power to stop her. He had been successful before, but that wasn't going to stop Qynn from trying. For years her mother had been meeting her in private. The woman taught her to fight and how to trick the demon into letting her go.

Unfortunately for her trick to work she had to let go of her fear. She would also need to get control of her breathing so she didn't pass out in one of the tunnels. Any moment now his face would jump out at her from the shadows. She would be scared so badly that she would pass out. Then she would wake up in a place darker than anything else, locked in a cave at the bottom of some cavern. If she was caught it would be over twenty times that she would spend time in that dark place.

Qynn struggled with her fear. She knew that her father would use it against her. Ever since she was young he had ingrained fear into her being. Somehow he had let her be free, but also have an iron grip on her. She had, after all, had private meetings with her mom. Yet every time she tried to escape or strayed to close to the surface he was there to guide her back to the depths.

Zahhak had always been so desperate to keep her, yet they were not close. He barely talked to her, and she found him to terrifying to approach most times. Qynn did not want to cower in front of him, but she did. She knew that he didn't want her to cower either, but he had decided to use her fear of him to keep her in the caverns. If it weren't for her mother guiding her ever since she was a hatching Qynn knew she would be absolutely insane.

Qynn wound her way up and down through the tunnels. Her father knew her objective and so Qynn did not have the luxury to stop or go back. If she stopped he would find her and punish her for trying to escape. If she went back then he might forgive her easier, but she would still be punished. Qynn knew at least where she was going. Having grown up in the tunnels she knew which would lead her to a dead end and which would wind their way into many other paths.

As long as she kept moving then her trick was more likely to work. Qynn hesitated to go on paths that she had already gone down. Her mother had assured her that her father would not find her if she went back through a stretch of tunnel. Nothing terrified Qynn more than the thought of running into her father while in the darkness. Qynn had done her best to cover her flaming tail so that her father could not use its light in order to track her. She wasn't exactly glowing but the scent of her fear was still ruining her plans.

Suddenly she could smell fresh air. It wasn't like the cool vents that sometimes came through the caverns. The air she was breathing was new and sun-touched. She knew it was too early to be this close to the surface. The risk of her father stopping her was too great. Qynn steeled herself again her fear. She had to leave and she had to leave now.

She could feel her father. His dark aura was slithering up towards her in a rage that could not be matched. Qynn picked up her pace and wiggled her tail violently in hopes that her coverings would come off. If her father met her here then she was going to fight him. Qynn vowed to keep fighting until one of them was dead. She wasn't fighting yet so she made sure she didn't slow her pace. All she had to do was exit the caverns and she would be free of him.

As Qynn raced higher she could see the tunnel illuminating. It wasn't the vibrant blue/green glow of the caverns. It look similar to her own yellow tail flame, but the color was muted. Qynn felt like she was flying through the tunnel although she knew she wasn't. Her fathers presence was terribly close to her. Just she she felt he was going to sink his jaws into her leg she emerged from the tunnel. The blast of cold fresh air shocked her lungs. As soon as she had open air around her wings she took flight. Her father couldn't fly, so her mother had taught her how.
