Best Eaten Cold

Post by 3trew » Tue Apr 28, 2015 7:17 am

8,263 vertical feet. Nine miles horizontally. Ten dives through tight sumps. Friends had died in this cave. At 52 it would be the last expedition for Kennedy Weeks underground. They were spent. It would be worth it. This was the deepest cave on earth, and he would be the first to see the final chamber.

Five minutes before they arrived the wizard teleported into the chamber. He emptied the satchel. Cigarette butts, a used condom, empty beer cans. "Ten years ago, Kennedy. Pity you'll never know why."

If you scratch someone's car in a parking lot, leave a note.

Most excellent, 3trew. The Bible says "Some people entertain angels without knowing it... "
It fails to mention that some angels are employed by the Lord of Darkness.
Never judge anyone until you have biopsied their brain.
