Coming Out Of The Earth

by C. M Saunders
Originally published by on 05/06/2018

In the mountains near our house, a company used explosives to carve out huge fissures in the ground on their quest for minerals.


My brother Paul and I went there one night looking for fossils. It was dark, but we took our torches. Still, we didn’t see the creatures until it was too late.

Fat, pale, eyeless worm-like things a metre or more long, coming at us out of the cracks. We tried to run, but they were everywhere. All around.

And they had teeth.

They say money is the root of all evil.

We can vouch for that.
