I know its name!
I have seen signs of a spectral abomination lurking in these caves.
I have survived long enough to know it is not a creature of flesh.
It is bone, yet it feeds on blood.
I dare not return to the surface before I know the truth.
I dare not speak above a whisper, lest it hear me.
My footfalls would summon it.
Running would summon it.
Screaming would summon it.
Sleeping would make me a victim.
I am not going back until I know the truth ... or until it feasts on my blood.
It will not! I will prevail!
I will stay awake.
I must not sleep.
I know its name, and I will destroy it.
