A bright flash of light welcomed me at the end of the portal. I winced and in reflex, used my hand to cover my eyes. When the bright light faded, I adjusted myself to the surroundings and saw where I was.

I was in a cave and the biggest I had been in my entire life. The stalagmites and stalactites were collosal. There was a narrow river a few paces behind me and the water was running into a darkened path. In front of me was an altar of some sort with lots of incense burning that my nostrils didn't particularly like.

"Look what we have here, " someone said nearby. It was from a man's, and I wouldn't have known him to be short and stout if he didn't step into the light with me.

I furrowed my brows, confused with what was happening. The environment itself made me nervous, but I tried to calm myself. It was the only way since I basically entered the portal without thinking of the consequences.

"Where am I? Who are you?" I asked the basic questions, hugging my shoulder bag as if it was my weapon ready for me to use should the man plan to hurt me.

I sensed an air of arrogance around him. Plus, he didn't look friendly at all. He was grinning like a bobcat. It gave me the chills.

"Ah, yes, the usual questions I get from a human, " he stated, looking at me like I was food.

My brow lifted.

"Let me explain your situation missy." He adjusted his jumper into position and then snorted. "I own you now. You took the bait, you fell into my trap. You'll fetch me a good sum if one of my customers like you."

I didn't exactly understand what the man said, but with him mentioning something about 'customers', I reckoned he was a shady businessman.

"What makes you think I'll stand by and let you own me? I have free will, mister. You can't just announce something that sensitive."

"Oh you don't exactly know what you just walked right in, " he countered, giving me a proud grin.

Just then, I felt my body go numb. My knees went weak and my hands turned clammy. Seconds later, my sense of balance disappeared. My head contacted the ground in a matter of seconds. A lightning pain shot through my head and then followed by my s

Aero. But really now? Blondie said this Manross guy uses the victim's innermost desire. How could Aero become my innermost desire?

This is absurd.

"In addition, once a victim is hooked, she won't be able to question the presence of the portal. She will be compelled to jump right into it without a second thought. This happened to all of us. I work as a professor in a nearby university in Fort Saint. Seeing a portal in an abandoned building would have been already a red flag for me, but I stepped inside anyway, strongly compelled by his power."

"I can't believe this is actually happening, " I replied, feeling a little bit guilty. I knew already the existence of other realms. I knew already that the portal could take me to one of these realms. I admit, maybe I was that naive to think it would put me back in Phanteon.

"Any idea what customers we are dealing with when we stand on top the platform?" I continued.

Blondie tipped her head up, gesturing to a group of women secretly conversing, "They are deliberating as of now which is the lesser evil: be purchased by one of his customers or be trapped in this routine like Mrs. Theresa."

"Why? What's wrong with this guy's customers?" I actually expected heads of gangsters or mafia bosses with trust issues and a heavy hand, but nothing prepared me to hear what's next.

"Oh dear, you don't know do you?" the second woman said, giving me sharp eyes. "They are vampires."
