The door creaked open slowly, and loudly. The hinges were obviously less well-cared-for than the knob. The sound of the creaking echoed down the tunnel, making me officially freaked out. I was late for school, in pain and in a creepy tunnel, all because of some st--

The bird was gone. Quietly cursing myself and it, I wrenched the door open further, and a waft of cool air blew at me. On the other side of the door, a massive cave towered above me, I could see all the way to the ceiling, which must have been three hundred feet above me. I couldnt see where the light was coming from though. It was weird, like having no shadow.  The ground was dirt, crunchy under my sneakers as I stepped through the door.

It slammed behind me, I could see from this side that it was heavily carved. I stepped foward cautiously, I wasnt feeling dizzy anymore, so I took that to be a good sign. There was nothing in this cavern, a flat floor, and the walls curved up into a huge dome. I stood in the center and looked up. Next thing I knew, black dots were clouding my vision and I fell to the floor in a crumpled heap.

The End
