Iconoclast

Reason for stopping: I got a late start, and by the time I hit 1k, it was bed time.
Today's Darling: Back home, dry and above ground, wrapped in a blanket and relating this to Samyazaz, I would probably speak of the sounds of trickling water and the way the wind occasionally swept over the mouth of the well at such an angle that it howled, preternatural and eerie. I would probably mention the way air from the cavern might leech up into any homes built above it and lend the space a chill that seemed to come from nowhere, and I would surely tell Samyazaz about the rumors of hauntings and curses that clung to this place, and laugh at how it was all explained by the unknown presence of the cistern beneath the men's feet.

But in this place, wet and cold and frightened, I was not laughing and I could not help but believe, just a little bit, that at least some of the men's tales might be true.
