Prologue

Bloodand Sweat!
ThatswhatIsmelled, mostly.
Blood everywhere around me and then the scent of mint filling my nostrils. I finally open my eyes afraid of what I mightfind. Anarrow-faced man with worried eyes. A search fulllook, the kind filled with pity. I was in shockand attempted to scream but my throat was to dry from the lackof water.
"Its gonna be okay, honey"
Thats all I heard until two rough arms grabbed me from behind , pulling me away fromthe black basement. My home for the past twelve years.
My home no longer.
