She asked fearfully. I had no idea. I let go of the door and stumbled back ward still holding onto her tightly. Right in front of us the ground began to split open. The shaking had intensified and Delilah fell out of my arms. I scrambled quickly and jumped to my feet. People were running down the crowded sidewalk screaming out in terror.

The concrete where she was standing gave way underneath her. She was falling, falling downward into the fiery pits of hell.

I jumped, closed my eyes, and landed.
