No voice told me what to do. My curiosity had turned into a feeling of repulsion.

I aimed my glock, randomly. I did not know what my bullets could do against this aural entity I was dealing with. However, I was not going to go down without a fight. I heard the voice sigh.

“You do realise, that your puny weapon is going to do you no good, right? Be a good boy a drink up the milk. You walked in here uninvited. This is the least you could do.”

I waved the gun around, vacillating between pseudo targets to shoot at.

“No, I will not. I came here uninvited. So, I am not going to ask for your permission to leave.”

This time, as the voice replied, I could sense a tone of amusement in it.

“Looks like we will do this the hard way, after all.”

The cold voice continued speaking to me.

“You heard me right, young man. I offer you an adventure of a lifetime.”

I snorted.

“And what is this adventure you speak of? And before that. Who are you? What the hell are you?”

The voice grew harsher.

“Just know me as your host. As for what I am. I am simply someone who is offering you a chance to get away from the mundane boring work, dreadful traffic jams, and a dull existence. I am simply supplying you with a scintillating experience. All you have to do, is drink milk from that carton over there.”

I never trusted the voice, but after looking at the carton appear from nowhere, I trusted it even less. I replied back.

“And what if I refuse?”

My question was met with chilling laughter.

I walked through the eerily silent pillared pathway.

The pathway ended at a black door. I silently opened the door and peered inside. I could see a well-furnished room. At the center was a table, placed upon which were a host of cups and three flasks. Suddenly, an invisible force pushed me inside. The door shut behind me. A cold voice filled the room.

“Welcome, uninvited guest.”

Before I could reply, the voice continued.

“You seek adventure. I can offer you one.”

I was intrigued. However, I thought it best to keep my guard up and glock drawn.
