Untold Secrets - Part 6

Your eyes blur; you can no longer fight the sleep.  “But why?”

The creature chuckles.  “They are afraid of you, warm-blooded, but do not fear.  I have endeavored to help you.”

His words drift away as a strange vision comes.  There is a cave with a jewel glowing at its center.  The throbbing in your palm pulls you back from sleep.

The creature is gone, but assorted fruit is placed on a small tray beside you.  The hunger in your stomach jumps to the forefront, and without waiting a moment longer, you begin to eat.

It is delicious.  A combination of flavors unlike any you have tasted.  It is not until it is all gone that you wonder exactly what it was.

The shaking has stopped; the drowsiness has evaporated.  If what the creature said was true, you may have reached normal body temperature, and if that is true, it is time to get out.

Looking around, the room is empty of any other being.  If they are so concerned about you being here, where is the guard?

As you push up with your arms, a wave of dizziness hits you.  It takes a moment of holding on for your head to clear.  Slipping from the tub, you are forced to grab onto the side, fighting against an unseen force.  Your eyes catch sight of a sparkling ruby hanging from a chain around your neck.  You can’t remember where it came from, but when you attempt to touch it, the dizziness gets worse.

The words of the creature echo back through your mind, ‘They are afraid of you’.  The necklace is the guard.
