Once upon a time in the Hollows...

Postby Rvanbergen » Fri Dec 14, 2012 9:56 pm

A spider screeched. The young boy jumped up, frightened, and looked around, but there was no sign of the monster. With a sigh of relief, he sat back against the wall. It had been 42 days now. 42 days since his father had led them into the Hollows. 42 days that they’d been trapped here. 42 days since the carnage…
With a shiver, the boy clutched his knees and crawled up to the wall. The wall that sealed them in these caves, the wall that had appeared when the bird died. His mother had told him that the bird had done a great thing, how he had saved them, but the boy hadn’t understood what she tried to tell him.
The child looked at the dark and listened for any sign of the spider he’d heard. It was quiet. A zombie moaned, somewhere in the distance, but that was nothing unusual…

Wait. It was unusual. Not the zombie, obviously, but there was something that didn’t make sense.
Only after he thought about it for a while did the kid realize what was wrong; it was too quiet.
He had heard his father talking to the other men, about how there was a giant noise coming from outside the walls, and he himself had heard the pounding. Everyone had heard the pounding.
The kid sat up and listened. Silence. No noise, no pounding. Only the wind that blew through the caverns and–

*KNOCK*
..... *KNOCK*

With a scream, the boy jumped away from the wall. This wasn’t the pounding. It sounded almost like…

*KNOCK*
..... ......*KNOCK
....*KNOCK*

But that was impossible… No one could be alive out there…
The boy pressed his ear against the wall and listened-
“-going to be dark soon! What are you doing that’s so damn important?”
“I thought I heard something over here.”
“It’s just a rock! You probably heard a zombie or something!”
“No, it didn’t sound like that… It sounded more like-“
“Look, if you want to stand there staring at a rock wall all night, that’s fine by me. I’m going back to the camp!”
“No… No, you’re right. It was probably-“


“HEY!” the kid yelled. “WE’RE IN HERE! HELP US!”
He pressed his ear against the rock again, listening for any sounds, but he only heard silence. As if the voices had only been a dream…
With amazement, the boy stepped back from the wall. He could barely believe what had just happened. Voices, from the outside.
He turned around and started running. He had to tell his father. He had to tell everyone! There were people outside the walls! Maybe this meant they could leave!

Sadly for the boy, at that moment, a spider jumped down from the ledge it had used to observe it’s afternoon snack from for the past few minutes. The news about the voices never reached the town.

I sorta asumed that, with the Hollows being as big as they are, they developed their own internal weather systems. :cool:

they were big, but not big enough to create wind. by far.
