Between The Shadows: Chapter Eleven

“Man, this place is kinda small, and dark..” Aaron says as Caelia leads him down a dark corridor hewn into the cliff side.  Caelia snickers a little as she pushes a rough wooden door open, entering into a large room.  The entire room is made of stone, corridors leading to other places littered in the walls.  Alcoves in the rock hold sconces ablaze with fire, and wooden scaffolding spanning the room as it goes up and up.  Caelia turns and looks at Aaron saying “Big enough for you?”.  Aaron nods in amazement as she leads him up a flight of stairs, heading toward one of the doors.
