Ghouls Galore Challenge Week 2: Transported

15 Oct

The prompts for Week Two of the Ghouls Galore Challenge were:




“Now where are we?” Michael sighed, glancing nervously around the small dark space.

“It looks like a cave.” Ben suggested, heaving himself up from the floor and rubbing his buttocks, which had taken the brunt of the impact.

Sarah was silent, her gaze fixated on a small flickering red light in the distance. She swallowed; the sound echoing ominously around them. “I have a hunch. But I don’t think you’re going to like it.”

“I have a hunch too.” Michael groaned. “A hunch that we shouldn’t do anything that Crazy Meg’s books tell us to from now on! So where exactly do you think we’ve ended up?”

Sarah took a deep breath, then spoke so quickly and quietly that her words were almost incomprehensible. “The Underworld.”

“The Underworld?” Ben repeated, nodding to himself as he tried to process the information. “And those, I suppose, are the fires of Hell?”

Sarah’s eyes followed his gaze back to the flickering red light and she nodded jerkily, looking faintly sick. Beside her, Ben buried his face in his hands, trying to block out his surroundings.

“And who do you think that is?” Michael asked worriedly, motioning to the shadow which had just fallen on the wall opposite them.

“Well.” Sarah licked her dry lips, almost forcing the words out. “I would say that it’s probably Lucifer. Otherwise known as Satan…or the devil.”

    Possible minor point of contention, it seems your setting was Cthonic but you didn’t actually use the word?
    Much stronger feeling that I love how this continues what you started with your first post, and I’m liking Crazy Meg more and more. Leaves me curious what’s going to happen with Michael, Ben and Sarah next, and what the creature of your choice for the final entry will be.
    Very fun characters.
