Having snapped out his transfixion, Aiden continued up the stairs, but then took a glance back behind him. There was a faint light...and it was getting closer. But as he focused, he noticed something about it. And then he noticed how far off it was. But as it came he could see more details.
It was a fiery figure, burning in the form of a large skeleton, although not a human one, and it was carrying a large flaming weapon of some sort. It began to speed up.
Then Aiden felt Ryan's hand grab him and he started running up the stairs again.
