What do you see #53 – The Cavern

He approached the cavern, again

Unsure why

The artifact was already in his possession

But, something drew him back

A whispure on the wind

A yank to his gut

Standing at the mouth, he asked,

“Why did you call me back?”

The cavern answered with a pull of his staff’s flame

His feet followed

Soft steps

Slow, cautious

The moment he entered

The flame was extinguished

He could no longer see, but heard a small whimper 

The cry of something…a child, an animal?

Into the cavern, he tread

Sightlessly searching for what wept

Then, he stumbled

Tripping over something small

It cried louder

A whoosh!

Something flew overhead

Something large, snarling

A magnanimous screech followed

The man instinctively fell over the small being

Shielding it with his body

A few minutes later, the little one exited the cavern

The man did not 

Thank you for the challenge, https://lifeafter50forwomen.com/2020/10/26/what-do-you-see-53-26-october20/
