Vestige of Credence: Chapter 2
Love Fantasy Book Series, Part 9: The Abyss
Thankfully they were still wearing their dark thermal suits or they would have surely frozen to death. Though their temperatures had remained stable, they were tossed about on their way down, leaving them disoriented. The land quake not only sucked them down, but it pulled them so far there was no sign of an easy way out. Being ocean creatures, the Basalt were decent swimmers, but never had the endurance for extremely long distances. As they were pulled farther down, the walls around them were smooth, showing few signs of holes or climbing aids at all.
Debris crackled beneath Kadden as he slowly shook his head for clarity. Lying on his stomach he began to push himself off the ground. “Curse Terryl!” he muttered as a broken seashell poking out of the sand sliced his hand.
“You know I don’t like it when you say that,” Ellara rolled her eyes. “I always said if it weren’t for your cursing, you could be the perfect gentleman.” She reached out and plucked some debris from a green streak in his brown hair.
“Eh, if it weren’t for your nagging, you would be the perfect lady,” he defended in his normal teasing manner.
After regaining full awareness and assessing the situation, they decided making camp for the night would be best. Tired from an exhausting long day, Kadden surveyed the area around them. There was debris-like seaweed, coral, shells, and some crabs, strewn about from the same quake that sucked him and Ellara down. The rock walls were dazzling and smooth. As he was drifting to sleep he also noticed some abnormally large holes scattered in the rock wall, but his mind escaped to rest before he could think more of it.
