her flashlight ontop of the stone, then placed her hands on the edge of the lid, ready to push it back. Meiya paused. She should probably call her father. Meiya bit her lip,looking back up to the stair case. She breathed in quietly then pushed at the lid. At first itdidn't even move an inch. She pushed harder, feeling the strain in her wrists and arms asshe heaved. Suddenly with an ear deafening screech it moved. Meiya froze and looked back to the stair case, expecting to hear her father yell at her for touching something. Butwhen silence echoed back she pushed again. This time the stone moved more freely.When the lid was moved just a foot she quickly grabbed her flashlight and aimed it in thetomb. Her breath stopped in her lungs. It was a man. But it wasn't a decomposed body of a man. It was a perfect man. His hair was long and grown out, deep rich and brown. Hisskin looked like stone, smooth and impossibly pale. His shoulders broad and powerful.Her eyes shot back up to his face as her eyes caught a glimpse of movement.
She thought as her eyes studied his face for that glimmer of movement. Shehad to be mistaken, her eyes playing tricks on her. Suddenly his eyes shot open.Meiya jumped and screamed. She dropped the flashlight. She heard the sickening soundof plastic breaking then darkness. Meiya had never known darkness like that before. Buteven in the darkness the image of his bright blue eyes was still very vivid in her mind.She heard him grown, then heard the scrap of stone against stone."Oh God."Meiya could hear her own heart thudding in her ears. She scrambled back on her handsand knees."Who are you?" Meiya froze when she heard his silk voice. "I said who are you." He saidagain when she didn't answer."M-…" Meiya tried to still her quivering voice. "Meiya." She said clearly."What year is it?" Meiya frowned, her mind racing."What year do you think it is?""You're not the one to ask questions! Now answer me." His voice was harsh and Meiyascampered back even further."2008.""2000!""And 8." She said quietly. She heard him sigh."Why have you woken me?""Woken you?" Meiya breathed in heavily, then let it out shakily. "I didn't 'woken' anyone!
