Dark

“Anybody there?”

The incessant dripping noises answered.  Charles was blind in the absolute darkness.  Laying on rough, grimy stone.  Bound with his own necktie.  Alone in the dark.  

The metallic scent of blood filled the vague space, saturating his panicked breaths.  Horrified, Charles listened closer to the dripping noise, hoping it was water.
