“Find a janitor’s supply closet,” Victor said. “Find some towels, soak them in something flammable, wrap them around something, and make some torches.”
“We’re not going in a dungeon, Uncle Victor!”
“Ben, I love you like a nephew, but shut-up. BIU’s are designed to survive in temps as low as -200 Fahrenheit. That slime-covering protects them.” Victor chuckled. “The downside is it’s highly flammable. Wave those flames and they won’t come near you.”

Not a chain letter or even a chain of fools, but the Chain Writing Game! The brainchild of Kerrie Salsac, a bunch of writers get together every week to create a story in 100-word chunks. Join in the fun, but hurry. We’re going to thirty then it gets capped off!
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
