“Liam! Liam, wake up!” The voice—Keith’s, he recognized—whispered nearby.
His tongue was thick and stuck to his teeth. He fought to sit up. Metal creaked loudly in the pitch black.
“Lie still! Just listen!” Tension pulled at Keith’s voice, making it thin and reedy “You can’t get out of here by resisting. The only way out is through the ritual.”
Ritual? What sort of shit had Keith gotten him into?
Cautiously he felt about. He was back on the cot. His clothes had been removed—he was oddly thankful not to be wearing piss-soaked jeans—and replaced by some sort of loose fabric that covered him from neck to foot.
“Don’t move!” Keith paused, his breathing fast and shallow. “Oh, crap—he’s coming back! I’m not supposed to be here! Don’t take the easy answer! Remember—don’t take the easy one!”
Easy answer? Any answer—hard or easy—would have been good!
This was getting worse by the minute.
