Gunthor crawled around the cavern, his usual haunt when he wasn’t further up with the “intelligent” ones. He heard something that sounded like a huge intake of breath, and he froze. Looking around, he called out to his friend, “Raquel? Are you there?” A muffled sound came from the cavern nearby. As he started to head towards her, he heard what appeared to be another breath, and he started crawling faster. “Raquel!” he shouted. “Hold on!” Suddenly a huge whoosh blew through the cavern and Gunthor lost his grip, flying backwards and out of the cavern. He landed on the ground with Raquel beside him. “Did we just get sneezed out of our human’s nose?” he asked her.
