The terror beyond

Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.

Dangerous territory, where even the most divine of beings wouldn't dare venture.

They know what's coming. What lies ahead.

Maybe so do you. But you take a leap of faith, anyway.

But it's one too far.

An act of trust, too fast.

A line crossed, beyond the point of no return.

It's too little, too late.

The fearful pause.

The tense moments where you can hear your heart thumping furiously against your chest.

The sudden, overwhelming silence amidst the cacophony.

The cries of despair as the world falls in around you.

Where time slows to a halt.

Where it's too late to stop what's coming.
