Haidee actually yelped when she fell back down this time “shit!” she cursed when she hit the ground, angrily picking up a rock and throwing it against the wall of dirt opposite her. She threw a few rocks, needing to release frustration about more than simply being stuck here. Her heart still ached at the loss of her fiance. She couldn’t move on, even four years later she wasn’t even close to moving on. Everyone told her he’d want her to be happy but she didn’t know how to be happy without Autry. The only way she could keep herself out of depression was thrill seeking and that might have now lead her to starving to death. Nothing lived down here and she wouldn’t for much longer having already been down here two days without anything to drink or eat and whatever bit her a few hours ago was obviously going to cause something. The place where it had sank its tiny teeth into was only looking worse with time.
She sighed, leaning against the wall of dirt she was nearest too. Maybe starving to death wouldnt be so bad. Maybe, if there was an after life she’d see Autry again. She shook the thoughts away, no, she wasn’t a quitter, she wouldn’t surrender her life to this stupid ravine she had fallen into. She decided to stop trying to go back up and try walking forward awhile. The village elders had always told her this ravine just went in a humongous circle but if she walked forward instead of trying to go up maybe, just maybe somebody would see her that could help her out.
Autry hid in a bush, it stabbing into his open wounds but not bothering him. He was determined, he was going to get away from these monsters this time and he was going to get revenge on his so called friend who had drugged him and given him to these things. Most importantly, he was going to get back to Haidee and hopefully still marry her if she hadn’t moved on. He wouldn’t blame her, but he desperately hoped she hadn’t forgotten him.
“Auuuutrrryy” The goosebumps inducing, creepy voice taunted. All these beings had these otherworldly voices that were hard to describe beyond creepy. Autry clutched the dagger he had stolen, ready to fight. It wasn’t taking him back, he was more determined than ever and ready to do anything to finally get back to Haidee.
