Over the course of a dozen or so decades, man has done many a stupid things. This day was no different when, suddenly, against all odds, the floor caved in and they all plummeted into the darkness.
A dozen screams tore through the darkness, a shrill sound that was swallowed by howling wind and roaring tunnels. It was almost as if they were on a slide, the sharp turns making her stomach lurch and a silent cry slip between hushed lips.
She prayed, hoping someone, or something, would answer her stream of silent pleas. In the darkness, nothing could be seen save a glimmer of light far above and a thousand twinkling stars below.
Into darkness would she fall, her future fragmented and destiny fortold.
