Summary: Please note, this is currently a very rough draft. There will be spelling and grammatical errors afoot as well as flat out bad writing, info dumps, plot holes, flat out contradictions, and uneven characterization and pacing. (Content is also subject to constant change as I take an editing chainsaw to the story.)
There is A Hole In The Bottom of the Sea
They found the edges of the vast lakebed, demarked only by the bones of the fish that had lived there.
“Out there, huh?” Flame said, looking out across the musty gray dust. “Best to wait until dawn then, we will not get anywhere in the dark.”
“What are we looking for?” Asked Baron.
“Not sure,” said May, “let’s hope we know it when we see it.”
They found the mouth of a cave, tucked away in the off center of the lake. Pitch black and gaping at the sky. They landed, but only after testing the ground to make sure it would hold them. This was rock, solid and strong and there was a hole that went down further than they could see.
May tossed a burning stick down the hole and it fell until it was out of sight.
“Well that’s not good.”
They were not sure what to do next.
“People would come to the oracle and ask questions, right?” Said Baron. “So ask a question?”
“Anyone awake down there?” May yelled, but there was no answer.
