the Cavern – Part 19

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

I was horrified at just what a state my pelt was in, being with the other group we hadn’t thought much on physical presentation. The mental images we had of each other was that of when we first met, back when I was putting the teams of volunteers together. Now with new people about I […]

The Cavern – Part 18

Tuesday, January 28th, 2014

We froze, someone hiccuped, the bang came again and again and then we heard the desperate voices. ‘Is there anybody there? Please, PLEASE?! Help!’ I was the first to move as I jumped over boxes to the door, my lecture was there moments after with a weapon, we opened the door with some difficulty due […]

The Cavern – Part 17

Monday, January 27th, 2014

I gestured for us all to huddle together, ‘we need to be quiet and I think they will go away,’ the medic nodded but I was so uncertain of my statement and yet I could see the need in their eyes to believe what I was saying. ‘We should sleep,’ I said, startled eyes scorned […]

The Cavern – Part 16

Monday, January 20th, 2014

My dreams were weird and chaotic, a hunger burned within me and shadows of memory stirred within but I could not catch. My dreams were not good, I stabbed my father with a chisel and buried all the small bodies who writhed and cried and called out to me. I was drenched in ice and […]

The Cavern – Part 15

Sunday, January 19th, 2014

The creatures fur was fully gone and in it’s stead a strange shiny scaliness. It was bigger and tougher looking. I didn’t have time to think as I dashed forward but my weapon just glanced off of the armour and I skittered wide, I turned back in time to see it closing in on the […]

The Cavern – Part 14

Monday, January 13th, 2014

We came eventually to the Cavern proper, sobs escaped more than half of us as we shone light with acrid flame upon the devastation. Retching was more prevalent. We were all tired and I wanted to set up somewhere safe for us to rest that was not the damn bubble. I found the freezers and […]

The Cavern – Part 13

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

I cracked the seals again, this time I had a climbing knife in my hand, just in case, what I had seen going past our little bubble, did not fill me with confidence. I did not mentioned it to the others. We were all awake now and huddled in a sorry little group, we had […]

The Cavern – Part 12

Friday, January 10th, 2014

Trembling I realised I was once again panting, and stood to break the seal on our little bubble. The water was down to just over half way but it was still a mighty river thundering past. Cracking the seals was nerve racking, they structures were still untested and no one had been really sure if […]

The Cavern – Part 11

Monday, January 6th, 2014

I slept fitfully, the cold of the bare stone floor partially moderated by my lecturers warmth eating into me. None of us three dared take the sedative as we would most likely come around after the group in general and that would be dangerous. Panicking people do not think properly. The medic had stimmed herself […]

The Cavern – Part 10

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

I was in the second inflatable airlock thinking about how I needed more Stim, I had set them all going and was about to head back to sort out a rota, one that would involve most people in some fashion, the big dig had started, we would get out! But then I heard it, a […]
