Thirty four words

for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt where the given word is Cave and the limit just 34 words.






I’m in a cave. My footsteps echo.


I sing, ‘lalala’. 


I sidle through a gap. It’s dark.

I shout ‘hello’. I hear an echo.


I shiver. I turn. Where’s the gap?

    Wow! At least he lived to tell the tale 😉
    All that clanking at the end…was that the sound of the “echo” sharpening a knife? Can’t be. My imagination’s getting carried away.

    Oooh, creepy! I don’t suppose google maps would work down there, Keith. Rather macabre the way you put the writing prompt box into what looks like a gravestone. Or was it meant to be the mouth of a cave?

    Hi Keith – should be a/n Halloween post … not as we emerge into the daylight of Spring – glad I don’t remember these ‘horror’ tales! Cheers Hilary

    Oh, where indeed?
    Great little story well read and played. Keith, star of blog radio searching for the gap. You are such a clever man.
