4. Post the text of the next 3 sentences on your blog (Please include the book and author) along with these instructions.

6. Tag five people. Make sure to let the people you’re tagging know by leaving them a comment.

She was surrounded by whispers – was that really just the wind in the cave or an echo of her restless thoughts? Distracted by her surroundings, she found there was too much to take in, too many unknowns affecting her focus –did that move? Pitch-dark crevices brimmed with half-seen lettering, skittering out behind her when she looked away, climbing the broken walls and hiding in the shadows on the ceiling. In places the uneven floor curled up to meet the bulging walls behind a tide of dark slime, so that even the most basic reference points were blurred.

Is there anybody there?
Who’s there? it’s only the wind. Shhhhhhhh

Further in, the sand disappeared under a mass of rough pebbles and random blocks littering the floor – some eerily as big as a man. Progress was tricky on the sliding shingle with barely enough light to see and none at all behind the boulders. Something crunched underfoot. The space became increasingly disorganised, as if the stone had been touched by some unearthly cataclysm; and this wanton disarray only served to fuel her inner turmoil.

I can’t do it here- it’s too dark and…. unstable.
Not here, surrounded by this…
….Maybe I’ve come too far?

I’ve tagged Frankie (another bookworm), and Angie and run out of friends (how sad is that?) If you really want to be tagged plz let me know – all requests considered favourably.
