Mole came aboveground.
"The air is fresh here," he remarked, "but I'm blind and need a guide."
Trickster Crooked Trail overheard.
"I'll guide you," said he. "Our path will be easy - all downhill."
"Very well, stranger," replied Mole.
Crooked Trail led Mole this way and that - all downhill. At length, they reached Rock Bottom.
Tired, hungry, and lost, Mole was helpless.
"Rest," said Crooked Trail. "I'll find food." But he snuck off, leaving poor Mole alone.
"My guide has tricked me and I can't even dig a tunnel out of Rock Bottom!" lamented Mole.
Mole was eaten by Owl.
