Stimulus: “There is a sound like a pebble dropped down a well.” (from All The Truth That’s In me)
There is a sound like a pebble dropped down a well.
Mostly because a pebble was dropped down a well.
However, this pebble is a very important pebble.
It isn’t a smartwatch, if you’re wondering. Just an ordinary, small stone.
Who dropped it down the well? What pebble is this?
Why is it so special?
That is what I must find out.
The first step? Drop down the well after it.
Which, er, turns out to be a very stupid idea.
There is a sound like a boulder dropped down a well. This is followed by a momentary scream, and then nothing.
I peer down the well. I can’t see anything – it’s so dark.
I hear a familiar laugh behind me. Oh great. It’s Will.
“Whatcha doin’, looking down a well?”
“Shove off,” I reply.
“I will shove off.”
He shoves me off down the well.
There is a sound like a, I don’t know, something dropped down the well.
The well has no guard.
