My bare knees clacked hard against the floor, their bony knots sore and chaffed. I winced in slight pain, imagining them to be red and raw. Time feels slow here as I keep crawling, how can it feel like hours when I've only gone a short ways?
My breath shallows as I sit still, my back arched up now in attempt at hearing anything new.
whomph a faint noise makes me tremble, a heavy noise that struck my right ear. Something was moving around besides me, striking a worse fear than being alone.
My hands tremble as I grasp my elbows in each one, feeling the goose pimples rise against my forearms. "sit still.." I think to myself, but my body is fearful.
A small ting in my left ear kept going in and out. Every other second the ting would sound and I'd just listen hoping it would move further away. The noise wasn't moving away, it hovered and the more I listened the more distinct it sounded.
My gulping was loud as I finally swallowed what little moisture was in my mouth. A whispered breath escapes as I try to muster up the courage to move somewhere and figure out my plan. The tinging was the same, but as I decided to move my right ear twitched.
"What...?" The feeling left right as I questioned it, and I went back to move towards my right.
A silence accompanies me once more as the tinging became quieter with moving on. As another moment passes a sudden prick on my ear makes me cringe and stop moving, my right ear itching in pain. "Ow!" I painfully moaned, what was that?
A frustrated head snap in the direction of the 'attack' did nothing for me, it was silent and eerily vacant. I didn't want that to happen again, something was telling me no. I sat still rubbing my ear, wondering my last question. As I did that a faint scratching was heard towards my left, my ears twitching in my mind as I pictured them picking up the sounds.
I began to head towards the direction of the sound, slowly my knees knocked against the floor.
