Eliza shivered slightly, as she returned to the old Chapel. At night, the ruin looked far more intimidating, and the fact that it was Halloween, didn’t make it any better. “What a stupid place for a test of courage – I just hope the girls know what they are doing”
As she went through the tall archway, she noticed that the place had already been decorated in a spooky way: A bunch of candles and carved pumpkins had been placed all around a small fountain in the middle of the chapel and Eliza saw some of Vivian’s old “magic” books lying around in the corner.
“Hm... strange” The air inside the chapel was wet and warm, even if the roof was missing – the further Eliza walked towards the weird fountain in the center, the more she felt like she was standing in some kind of tropical greenhouse.
She threw her jacket away and looked around. “Viv? Cloe?! Sam? Are you here? - I... I got this book you mentioned... you know that other dusty one from the collection Viv got from that weird old lady...”
Just in that moment, Eliza realized, that the water inside the fountain seemed to slightly glow in a pulsing light. “Girls?! Have you tried one of these creepy recipes without me already?”
“Come to the fountain Eliza...” Vivian’s voice echoed from the walls of the chapel “S-Stop playing tricks on me Viv... that´s not funny anymore!”
“Join us Eliza... the fountain of joy is calling for you!” Carefully, Eliza approached the glowing substance, as she suddenly heard an unnatural creaking of wood above her.
