[Posted for Kay's Genre Shorties. Prompt: While walking near a stream, you fall into a secret chamber. Tell me what you see there. -- Use one/more of the following -- doubloon / pudding / buckshot / dingo / Indiana Jones.]
OOF! I landed with a thud. I wasn’t face down in gravel, but rather standing in a room lined with photos of dogs, dingos, and doubloons.
“YES!” someone shouted happily from an alcove. I sensed no danger, and crept closer in the canine-scented gloom to see.
A man sat at a computer, gleefully tapping at the keys. “It’s there! And there! And now there! YES! The mound stories are fully interconnected! I cannot be stopped!” He drank deep from a 32-ounce MegaZap coffee. “MUAHAHAHA! Another mound story complete! YESSSS!!!!!”
I clawed my way back to safety, fast.
