Gripping the carving knife tightly, Ciona descended the stairs. After a few steps, she turned and looked behind her, unsurprised at seeing the staircase going up into the distance. Turning around to look forward, she found herself at the base of the steps. She glanced over her shoulder and gave a humourless laugh when a wall was the only thing behind her. She started heading through the mass of pipes, cogs and handles, carefully avoiding the ones ejecting steam.

The scream filled the air again, and Ciona took an involuntary step backwards and caught her foot on something. Looking down, she found a train track on stones and rocks. She tried to run away when it started vibrating and felt her right foot catch under the track. She tried pulling it free, and felt her left foot sink into the stones. The train rounded the corner and Ciona tried twisting her ankle to ease it out, but her hands would not come off the stones. Frantically, she tried wiggling her foot to free it, but the rail kept tightening its hold on her.

Hands gripped her under the arms and yanked her out just as the train roared past.

  1. Oh that was gripping (no pun intended). You had me interested straightaway and kept me there. This is some really strong writing, Al.I loved the details in the description too. It made the atmosphere real to me. I could easily visualize it.

    • Thanks Vishal. It was one of many that I took a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to get down onto the tracks but that wouldn’t have been a good idea hehe

    • Oh yes. I’ll still be here for now. I am paid up to next year. We’ll see what happens between now and then. Thank you for your support Emily, I appreciate it
