Eric ran. He ran faster than he had run before. He ran away from the burning building. He ran deeper and deeper into the forest. He ran away from death, from the flames of chaos. He finaly came to a stop deep in the misty woods, and for once, he was lost.

Eric heard a noise, he pricked up his ears. "Hyperboreans," He wispered, "I didn't think I was this far north." He ducked behind a tree to avoid the icy stare of the northern giants. Luckly the giants walked straight past - walking off into the mist.

Eric came out from behind the tree and carried on walking.

Eric arived at the foot of a mountain, it's vast shape towering of into the sky. Eric put his hand firmly onto the rough icy surface, that was the face of the mountain, and started climbing.
