The blonde girl sitting next to me was getting impatient. A few more minutes passed before she spoke in a shaky voice.
“I don’t mean to question you, but something is off here. We’ve been up and down, around and around and in a circle more times than I can count and still I’m looking at the same landscape each time.”
“And that’s not all, I haven’t even mentioned the people who keep getting on and off … while we sit here.”
“The people who don’t look like our people. “
“I’m going to guess this isn’t our ship.”
“AM I RIGHT ? ”
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
“I’m sorry but I’m not climbing that high. I’m staying here. I’m not risking no broken bones or nothing just because you dared me to.”
”Sam. Answer me when I’m talking to you.”
”Hey, I guess I am just wondering why we are following the others when you’re the boss.”
”Sam… Hey, it’s a bit early for that. I’m confused about… Ehh. Sam? you are sure screwy acting like you ain’t right in the head.”
”What’s got hold of you Sam?”
”Sam, where did you go? I can’t see you anymore. Are you there?”
Finally, Sam answered ”I’m headed back down the path to get some help. Stay put and I’ll be back .”
Like I could go nowhere Sam, I’m stuck in here and you know it .”
The redheaded girl yelled one more time “Sam! ” before she went silent at the sound of his footsteps walking away.
The next thing Tobi heard were men talking.
“Imagine being in there with this one! She’d never shut up.”
The deep voices then gave way to laughter, coming from outside of the cave. Tobi angrily said, “it ain’t funny, I’m stuck in the dark and I’m hungry and it’s cold and smelly and I hate you, damn it, Sam “.
”Be quiet and you’ll get yours, I promise. ”
The voice wasn’t familiar to her either but she was sure it wasn’t Sam…She was still screaming for him even while he was shoved inside the cave.
The knowing eyes glowed red.
