Cracks appeared in the ground underneath my feet. I tried to walk away but found I was rooted to the spot. I'd just started wondering what in the world was happening and thinking that whatever was happening, it was probably Atlantis' doing, when suddenly the concrete crumbled and fell away, taking me with it. I screamed and tried to grab on to the side but I couldn't hold, the pulling force was too strong. Like in that Doctor Who episode The Hungry Earth, I thought.

My scream was cut off as my hand slipped and I lost my grip, shutting my mouth so I didn't choke on the loose dry soil.

Help! I wanted to scream. Somebody help!

No one would hear me if I did.

Please let the others find me.

I blacked out from lack of air.

Please don't let me be lost forever.

The End
