"Uhm, I'm not sure, I thought it was somewhere by the entrance of the cave but it could be my eyes playing tricks on me.
" Sable mumbled back, and a hand awkwardly came up to scratch the back of his neck. He felt the hairs stand up on end; the sudden chills he got when he thought
he had spotted something. Mayhaps it was the atmosphere of the night that was making him see things that weren't really there.
"We should get going honestly.
" He didn't want to sound like he was rushing anyone, but they've spent long enough time dawdling around with no one, in particular, wanting to take charge. Everyone's had their fill of hot cocoa or coffee or whatever the heck it was, so it was time to get a move on.
As if to prove his point and that he wasn't just all talk, Sable walked ahead of the group without another word. Which honestly, was a blessing for the time being — he was known to let loose a string of verbal abuse and insults most of the time, but he was already being particularly tame tonight. The Lancer support's boots crunched against the sandy ground, which comprised of damp rock and aquatic growth subsisting from the spray of ocean water nearby.
Upon entering the cave, the immediate thing Sable noticed was how much louder sound was amplified in an enclosed space as this. The sounds of his own breathing coupled with a few loud drips of water in the background filled his ears. It was dark, for sure, and squinting in the darkness, Sable would fumble around, feeling for the wall so he could have something to lean on in case he would lose his footing in this slippery, dark space.
His hands must've touched something strange, for the moment he placed weight on his palm, it sank into a sudden depression that was perhaps an inch deep, and a deep click sounded within the cavern walls. Immediately, torches scattered throughout the cavern that weren't known to him before, lit up in unison.
don't get in a post soon I'll replace them with new
