But it left... Sign in to see full entry.

They started to see further and further ahead, until the spotlight beam actually disappeared before it reflected back from the walls.

“Keep your spotlight down. I’ve found a hole and you’re coming right up on it, Dan. It looks like it’s only eight feet deep. There’s a ladder going down the side. I can’t see from here, but there may be tunnels taking off from it,” said Blake. Stark shuffled along slowly in the direction of Blake’s... Sign in to see full entry.
