Those underground felt the final heave and knew that something sinister had happened. Such a large quake could only be accompanied by catastrophe. Tremors continued to rattle through the maze of tunnels, causing some to collapse and others to fill with rocks and earth.
Regan and the family of assassins barely escaped permanent entombment as the routes behind them began to cave in. It took all of their lagging strength to stay ahead of the disaster. Stumbling, falling and gasping they pushed on. In the end all were safe, though there were several who would have turned back if they'd still had the option.
When they finally came to a quiet place the men gathered their wits, caught their breath and looked around. It was bad. They had lost their path. There was no way to tell where they were, or which way led to freedom. The girls could be anywhere. Maybe they were miles ahead, or on some other course entirely. Worse yet, and an option Regan was not prepared to consider, they could be lying crushed in a collapsed tunnel under a pile of stones.
Thar ya go! Hope you enjoyed! I also hope you have a fabulous Friday and a wonderful weekend. :) Thanks for stopping by.
