Eurydice, Don't Follow Me
Fritzie reaches the end of the long, dark tunnel she had fallen through after completing her ritual and leaving the world she'd known behind. The space in which she finds herself is only slightly less dark, but has the feel of a large cavern instead of a tunnel. Nearby, the sound of a raging river can be heard, running through the cavern and disappearing into nothingness.|
Apart from the river, the cavern is empty except for one other person - a tall, thin person in a black robe with a cowl, standing at the edge of the river with his back to Fritzie. He stands next to a black, flat-bottomed boat, and holds a long oar in one hand. Looking more closely, Fritzie can see that his hands are not so much human hands as a collection of bones, held together by some invisible force, grasping the oar tightly. So far, he has not moved or seemed to have noticed her presence.
I guess that now is the time to do what I came here to do.
