Fantasy Drabble #104 “Spelunking”

Men had never been in these caves, but with the dragon gone…

The deeper they went, the darker it seemed. That was an illusion, of course.They had found no treasure, so far, but it had to be here somewhere; the dragon couldn’t have taken it with him when he flew away. Possibly, the hoard could have been hidden with magic, but their sorcerer would detect that.

The deeper they went, though, the greater the danger. There were things in the dark that would run from a dragon but not a man. And some were probably looking for the treasure themselves.
