- Prequel to Light -
The uncomfortable dampness of this cave made my skin crawl.
Three reasons for it.
First of all, I was having constant illusions of flashing shadows.
Second of all, I kept hearing faint screams in the distance. Perhaps they were simply part of my hallucinations.
I couldn't be sure.
I was down on my all fours, eyes searching the narrow, dry path ahead of me. Besides the path, everything else was wet.
Even in the darkness, I could see tiny bugs scrambling up the rocks, antennae twitching every so often.
I hate bugs.
I hate getting lost.
I hate darkness.
