snoozing

(Something's not right... thought Mina, frowning at the wall scratches. She had been following that tunnel for a loong time - in a straight line! - and it was now the second time she encountered them... They looked like something her brother had doodlingscribbled, but made no sense. Knock... knock, knock! - A few pickaxe hits and something like... plaster fell off. Behind was... (she approached to see better -) a rune! Which she didn't know how to read... But it must have meant something, something magical! Of course, why someone would bother to place such a potent symbol at child height never crossed her mind. So she touched it - not with the pickaxe. And what do you know!? The rock wall began to shake - pebbles and dust fell - Mina covered her eyes, seeing nothing for a while - and then... She peeked, and there stood a door open. She stepped past its threshold, made another step, and - her third never reaching floor - she suddenly felt cannon-balled back to the tunnel. THAT HURT! Something kept pushing her, struggling to free itself. What, it was a... little pig? with two feet in her pockets. "Thief!" came out of her - when she realized, and she grabbed the porkling, and they wrestled, and... In the middle of all that, the piggy - who got over being scared and thought the girl is playing - oinked and met her cheek with the snout. ?! Mina stopped, puzzled, and pushed herself at arm distance to see better. The thing had gave in and smiled. Oh... She stood and dusted her clothes off a bit, then sneezed - and the piglet sneezed at the same time. Hey... she thought, this pig is alright. "You are no thief, are you? she asked, leaning her head with a tinge of doubt - Court knights have to be careful of reputation! The porkling shook its head and oinked again. Oh, good! her mind shined, dispelling awkwardness. "Friends? came along with a hand to shake. The oinker reached with its hoof, gladly, and that sealed it. No - There was more. The piglet checked all its pockets hurriedly, and eventually found and presented her: a little coil of thread. For me? she asked. But... surprise took over her - it's filigreemade of gold! Doubt shadow. Pig smile. "So... where did you find this?" came the question. The porkling put on a serious frown, as if trying hard to remember, but eventually its eyebrows rose and the shoulders soon followed. Ookay... thought Mina, and took the piggy's hoof in her hand. "We'll go down the way you came from and find out," she said, and they started along the mysterious path stretching forth from the runed door.)

awakened

(They have been walking for a while, when suddenly the piglet yanked her hand, almost throwing her down. "What?! What is it?" she asked, stubbornly holding her ground. But the pig kept pulling, and... trembling? Why... it was scared! she thought - Too scared even to oink... "Calm down, calm down!" she cried, and - pulling hard on her turn - ended up wrestling with it again. That, however, didn't last long - the piggy half starved as it was. Feet in her pockets, just some trembling left of the struggle, it gave in. Looking into those wide eyes, she scratched him gently on the forehead, wondering what might have frightened it so. She turned, piglet in arms, and gazed forward... but could see nothing unusual. Just walls and supporting beams all the way. So she again started walking, but with a wary step. The pickaxe hung at her belt, and she could hardly have freed a hand to fight... A couple of yards later, a feeling made her stop, abruptly. What... the air... the air was heavy with something! She stepped back. The air grew heavier and... rhythmical?! The porkling let out a desperate squeal. Mina needed no more to turn and run. Behind, she heard a sound as if the tunnel collapsed, then a deep, skin crawling groan. She turned her head and spotted with a side glance large chunks of the broken ceiling which rose. As if... Since nothing followed her, she stopped and looked back. Even made a few steps in the danger's direction. Then came the groan again, and she had the odd notion it was the tunnel's. "Hey!" she shouted, startling the pig - "Are you trying to eat us?!" / "Aaarrgghh..." the groan voice returned. "What do you mean, aarrgh? We're not food, we're people!" she replied. A faded argh was then heard after some seconds, yet it sounded more like an "ooow". The pig had stopped shaking - the situation seemingly under the Dwarf's control - so Mina put it down and they both approached the... tunnel mouth more. "What's the matter with you?" she asked - "Earth and stone need no food..." / "Errr... uhm... no..." came the rough, yet pained sounding answer. "Not eat... I... oow, it hurts..." it said, and then - "I just... needed a soft thing to byte on..." Mina dared to looked closer, and the mouth let itself be inspected. "There, up there..." it said, and the Dwarf's eyes landed on gingivala big hole flanked by two hefty boulders. "It hurts..." Now, Mina never heard of awakened earth, but she knew plenty of digging - and it just looked like someone's pickaxe did a hasty job on that spot, extracting something. Could it have been... "My brother!" she exclaimed suddenly, and both the pig and the earth mouth cringed slightly before the angry vision. "He and that... partner in crime of his, the villains! she continued - "Oooh... They will pay! They'll be brought to justice!" - "You!" she turned towards the mouth, waving the pickaxe - "You shall testify!" she cried, and then turned towards an imagined royal court, where she would litigateprosecute. Gesturing, at times loudly agreeing with herself, she started walking forward - lost in her mind game. The piglet, followed some feet behind, a new kind of worry on his little face. "Uhm... okay?! Oow..." sounded from behind. The mouth - not sure as to why it needed the girl's agreement to byte them - let them pass, turning to the pain it alone seemed to care about...)

complain

("That was the last rock candy..." said Mina, looking back at her companion. The piglet nodded slowly, without raising the eyes. It was barely dragging its legs now, a pitiful image if she ever saw one. But she was growing weak herself, in spite of belonging to sturdy Dwarf stock. And they don't just eat rock, as some think! "Try to keep up," she encouraged it, seeing they were about to enter a dark passage. Soon she was using her hands to guide herself. There was a turn. And then she thought she saw this pale, flickering light. A room maybe... But as she approached it, the light did not grow much in size. Something else did though, a sound - which initially seemed to be usual mountain tremor - but now ringed more and more like snoring. The pickaxe in her hand, Mina stepped forth boldly. But... "Why, this wasn't a monster!" It was a little firefly... "Wait - Fireflies don't snore! ...Well, maybe this one did." In any case, the firefly was now giving its all to draw attention. "Oh... Was it signalling me?!" she thought, and raised her hand to touch it. "What? This felt like... Spiderweb!" The little Dwarf hated spiders. Seeing red, or perhaps infrared - given how dark it still was, she started waving her arms and hacking, and... When she stopped, there was no sign of the spider - that probably ran away, the snoring could not be heard anymore - okay, some spiders snore, and the firefly was free! It circled Mina a few times, landed on her knob-nose for a short tickle, then flew away - it alone knew where to... A proud smile bloomed on the little Dwarf's face - Oh, I beg your pardon: Knight Mina... the Brave! who just saved a fair princess from tragic fate. "Mm-mm..." - She now swaggered forward, her gaze lost in another day dream. "Oink!" / "Mm... Hm? What?! ...Oh, yes, a door, let's open it!" They must have reached the tunnel's end. Hand on the doorknob, she pulled hard. On the other side... "Goblins!" A dozen or so of them, their arms full with stuff they were just stealing, most likely. When the door opened they froze. "Aaaaaa!" shouted Mina and charged. The intruders ran, each wherever it could. But one she did catch! And Dwarfs don't let go easily. The room had quickly cleared, some holes no doubt being hidden in its dark corners. "Ha!" puffed MIna, "some friends you got!" The goblin she had caught gave her an oblique glance, then suddenly stopped struggling and said: "Ahem... dey no frienz." And, taking on an aloof pose, continued: "Me waz... kinnappd. Dey forzes me doez diz!" / "Oh..." went the Dwarf, loosening her grip, "Oh, are you like... a princess too?" she asked. The goblin fluttered its eyelashes and replied: "U speakz tru! Me grin madein, me imported perzn! U, u savez me!" / "Ooh..." Mina let out, and - taking a couple of steps back - knelt and bowed, saying: "Knight Mina the Brave, at your se..." "What? Where is it?! Why... It ran away!" Not quite sure what went on, she turned to look for the porkling. But her companion couldn't care less the goblin had disappeared. It was now happily gulping on all the good stuff the greenskins were carrying: "Oink, oink!" / "Yes, i guess it's alright..." the Dwarf said, her previous mind catching up with her. This must have been her brother's lair - so all the food was probably snatched from the pantries, in the first place. For herself, she found a sound looking cheese lump and some apples. Then, nipping slowly, she walked around, studying the room's contents. There were all sorts of things there: toys, toy parts, tools, pieces of pipe and gear, and some stuff she knew nothing of... Suddenly, noise: She kicked something, a... waste bucket. "Eww" - It looked like it hadn't been emptied in ages. Some things rolled out of it, and one kept rolling, going... all the way towards a dark corner, and soon after - she heard, somewhere below, a thump. Approaching, she found it indeed was one of the holes the goblins got through. Large enough for them both to pass, "though..." Mina looked back, wondering how much the piglet could take up in volume at one such meal... Well, it might just make it, she figured - "But they had to move now!" "Pig, piggy!" she called. There was still so much food... "PIG! I'm going, Now!" she emphasized, and let herself in through the hole. Her feet reached a ladder of sorts, though it soon broke under her weight. Rickety goblin work, no doubt... Well, at least the floor was near enough, she thought and, looking back up, clapped her hands and called "Pig!" once more. Her pink friend soon appeared in the opening - first the face, then the head, then a foot, then the other foot, then... Mina jumped and grabbed both its feet - then pulled hard. The cave wall groaned, let dust and pebbles fell - some into Mina's face, but eventually granted the fat thing passage: suddenly, unexpectedly, making the two fall and hit hard rock... No much use in complaining, they picked themselves up, dusted clothes and skins off, and - rubbing bruises, headed in one direction. No signs told which way the goblins went, or gave any clue as to this new tunnel's purpose. But that hole must have been large enough for Monse, if not for her brother, Mina figured - "and he probably thought it was secret too!" So they went on. Straight forward, then left, then left again, then right - and they reached another dark passage. And, funny thing... a turn revealed a small pale light again, flickering on in the distance - complete with spider snore. "Oh," Mina thought, hastening her pace - "The little fly got caught again..." This time, as she approached, the light sort of grew more and stopped flickering - as if... it recognized her, and the fly again gave its all, signalling to its rescuer. But... a few steps to the light, she suddenly realized that... the firefly looked more like an eye, and... the snoring... the snoring now sounded like a growl now... Suddenly, more lights appeared, a large one in their center - Why, this was no spider's web, that - no firefly! The little Dwarf had unfortunately ran into far more serious misadventure: a fully grown and obviously upset beholder!)
