What on Earth happened?
Jadia opened her eyes. Her head pounded and her mouth tasted of vomit. She was lying between Kevin and Sapphire who were both asleep. She groaned as her stomach churched and rolled over and threw up a few metres away from the dark boulder.
Clutching her throat, Jadia stumbled across to the ruined flight of stairs. Some new guy eyed her a little disgustedly; he seemed to be the only one who hadn’t given in to the temptation.
“Having fun, are we?”
“Mmm? Who are you?”

“Um…yeah well I can’t be very helpful there…” Adam looked a bit sheepish.
Sapphire appeared, rubbing her forehead, “I’m parched J…we need to get out of here.”
“Hey…” Adam raised his eyebrows at her, “I might be able to help with that…”
“Why the hell didn’t you say so beforehand?”
“Well you lot were all getting tipsy, but I now have an idea. If somebody tells me what’s going on in this place…”
