You reach for the necklace, hanging on the witches grave deep within the Dungeon.
As you reach out towards it, you feel a change in the air. Your vision begins to blur, you sense a presence in your mind creeping like a shadow in the night. You attempt to pull away, but the more you try the more the shadow consumes you. A voice you now hear, not within the dungeon but within your mind. A child's voice, innocent, but at the same time sinister and crule. The voice of the witch long buried within the grave you now stand before. She speaks to you now, her voice echoing in your mind, bouncing around inside your skull.
"good knight, though your intensions are good, should thou taketh thy necklace from thy grave, you should know one thing. This is no ordinary necklace your maidens heart would desire, it possesses power of an evil kind. A wicked curse once bestowed up thyself by the most wickedest of evil from the far reaches of bellow."
Your eyes are now fixed upon the gleeming jewel set within the necklace, shining like a star in the blackest of skies. A deep red glow, blood, swirling within, pulling you ever closer.
The echoing in your mind begins once more, the witch now sounding older but softer in tone.
"You may take this prize and bestow it upon the neck of your hearts desire, but should thou do this, know one thing. You shall enjoy many years of the sweetest love, you will live long and grow old together. You will bear three children, all of fair hair and full of grace. But know this will come at a price. The evil bestowed within thy necklace will spread throughout the land, the cruelest and most evil of demons from the depths below will rise and consume this earth. Many people will die and Kings and their kingdoms will fall."
The voice begins to fade now from your mind. You sense feeling in your limbs once more, as your senses return and your vision clears you look down at your hand. The necklace now held within your palm.
The witches voice returns once more, this time from the grave. A chill down your spine as she speaks her final words of head to your soul.
"Leave now, brave sir Knight, take your prize within your grasp. You may hold it within your possession and worry not. Only upon giving into your deepest desire, when you finish tying the necless around thous maidens neck, will the dark start to consume the light and the land you walk. Go now brave sir Knight, let your heart decide your fate and that of the world."
