Last Words of Harod - Page 2
I had to pause in my exploration. I've lost track of time and the air here is thin. I found the driest place I could to lay down. I know not how long I slept, but I was awoken by large grubs spraying something viscous all over my clothes, almost like spiderwebs. Now my skin tingles where it was exposed.
I dread to think what would have happened if I had not awoken when I did. Would I have been devoured in my sleep, my senses dulled by the strange sludge? The horrid things retreated when I brandished my sword, but I know they are not far behind as I walk. They are in no rush to have their inevitable meal.

How do two people keep a secret? One kills the other.
