The Touring Party

Surprisingly, it didn’t feel cold here.
In fact, it was like being in the rosy glow of a welcoming fire, although technically they
were in the bowels of the earth.
The Guide had warned them to keep up, but something had attracted their attention, thus they had lingered too long and too far behind.
Stalactites and stalagmites surrounded them, some floor to ceiling like pillars holding up the roof in erratic sizes.
The lumps and bumps in the floor were equally solid, but their shape unusually rounded.
Their footsteps echoed round the chamber as they climbed the steps towards what they thought was the exit and daylight.
Then the lights went out and the rosy glow disappeared.
In the pitch blackness, each felt a hand tug on their ankle and pull them screaming into the undulating floor.
The Beast was awake, and needed some new disciples.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
