Against the stone wall of the cave, a scraping talon sounds...
As Jake entered the cave there were no noises. It was dark except a light that shone through an unknown hole in the ceiling of the cave that shone a singular island in the middle of a lake. He had been walking for a little while to get up to the cave.
He wore jeans, a brown t-shirt, a flannel, and a jacket. His back-pack lay on his back, full of tools, food, water, and clothes.
He finally found ...
I go back to a cave in the Kingdom of Shadows, and I camp there in a fortress of cold stone. I am a fool returning from enlightenment just to seek shelter.
“Uri, come join us by the fire,” Blima, an old friend, invites. “Did you find what you were looking for?”
“I found the source of all the world’s light, I think.” I sit down beside her, noticing her wide, skeptical glance.
“We make the light...
Against the stone of the cave wall, the screech of a talon scraping against its side sounded. Aster sucked in a panicky breath. She tried to silently scramble further into the cave.
“Where is it?”
Aster froze as another of her pursuers spat out an answer. She shouldn’t have wandered off. She knew better.
Aster backed even further into the recesses of the cave. She tried to ignore the large crac...
Granator could smell them. Could smell their distinctive scent, different from that of every other animal in the kingdom. Although the scent of fear was almost universal among prey animals, a stronger stench overpowered it with these beings. It was almost predator-like; a strong, meaty aroma that wafted through the air and assaulted your senses.
He slowly crept along the dark tunnel, breathing s...
“Do we have to go through this cave?”
Nova gives the dark opening an uneasy expression, shifting from one foot to the other. There are many elements of life that she can take on head first, but the unknown in the shadows is one of the only things she’ll admit to being scared of.
“No, but it is the quickest way,” Ward answers, something in his eyes that isn’t quite pity, a bit more harsh than t...

In my cave I sit, alone and tired.
Darkness hugs me, blanketing.
Anger rises, slowly building.
The pain buried deep.
Crack the door with several locks,
Blade indents on the old wood
as I walk out, jar in hand.
Kneeling, grabbing the shovel.
I peel the flesh back, unearthing-
A deep, dark hole full of feelings I hide.
Sitting the jar in, I stand.
I’ll cover it up and pat it down.
No one will see...
I sit there as silent as one of the stones on the wall of the cave. The only sound I can hear is my heart beating like a thousand drummers banging against my rib cage. If this creature can smell fear like they say, it will certainly find me within moments. As I sit, I think about my last few days- running. I have been running from this wild beast for nearly a month, and I think today may be the da...
Kaida scanned the tattered map and looked up at the looming cave mouth in front of her. The darkness inside laid a striking contrast to the bright, sunny day around her. She furrowed her brows, and exhaled.
“Well... This is it. This is where Idris is supposed to be.”
She folded the map up, hands shaking slightly, and shoved it into her pouch attached to her belt.
Come on. You got this.
Against the stone wall of the cave, a scraping talon sounds, and Haggrmyr freezes, his blood turning to ice in his veins. The sound echoes around the stone walls, magnifying the shriek of keratin against rock, and making it difficult for Haggrmyr to pinpoint its origin. He curses Loki and Thor and the priestess of his home village for measure, and finally curses himself. His hair stands on end as ...
