Noah was running to the no visible exit when he started to feel severe pains in his chest it was as if someone was stubbing him with sharp objectthe pain was unbearably strong.He clutched his chest as he started to feel like his heart has been ripped off.He then passed out not sure for how long

he tried to open his eyes they felt so heavy.He heard the sweetest voice calling out his name and warning him of danger but he still couldn't open his eyes then suddenly he felt something poking him painfully he then opened his eyespeciallyhe looked at his surroundings and realised he's no longer in the passage way.when his eyes got accustomed to his surroundings he realised he was at some old scary graveyard. Noah :"Oh dear Lord how did I get here?"he asked himselfshocked. He then noticed the phoenix standing over his backpack the one with the wooden box his granny gave him. Noah :"Oh I must open it"he opened it there was a bible and a small old looking folder and a pendant with Jesus in a cross.The phoenix bit the pendant twice then looked at Noah took and put it on then the phoenix stood over the bible then stepped aside then poked itit opened to the book of Psalms 23.Noah took it then started reading it loudly when he was done he then closed the bag packthe phoenix flew away. Seconds later a strong dusty wind started blowingit was so strong and cold he couldn't see a then it subsided a bit. It was then that the sorceress appeared laughing so hardshe was floating on air as if she was flying. Sorceress :"Son of king Raphael we finally meet " Noah :"Who are you and what do you want from me? "he asked her scared as hell although he was trying so hard to hide it Sorceress :"Come join me....together you and i we'll be unstoppable.Your great powers when combined with minewe can rule the whole universe " Noah :"I want nothing to do with you and your evil powers " Sorceress :"Ncncncc I tried "then she laughed and raised her arms and shouted her incantations then her hands engulfed in fire she threw the fire at Noah he ducked and shielded himself with the bible.The fire hit the bible then went back to the sorceress and it hit her on the chestShe cried out in pain as she was pulling herself together the phoenix appeared again and circled the graveyard. The sorceress got up and through something at the phoenix and it hit the phoenix's right wing.Noah was watching not knowing what to do then he heard a melodious voice whispering to him telling him to pray.He started prayinghe prayed and worshiped the Lord. Shouting Jesus's name loudlyhe prayed for what felt like a long time although it was just few minuteswhen he shouted Amen he noticed that the sorceress has fallen down and she was wincing in pain. He then ran to help the phoenixhe quickly ripped off his shirt and wrapped it around the phoenix's wing.The phoenix fixed her eyes on the sorceressNoah also directed his eyes at her.He noticed she was staggering up.He got scared the phoenix flew and stood on his head and opened her wings as if she wants to fly then turned around in circles three times still on Noah's head.then a great light circled them and they disappeared.
