Sussura stumbled about in complete darkness, after she had regained consciousness.
If only I had a bit of light I could find my way back to my friends.
"Fireflies... fireflies," she called out to them to ask for assistance.
"Pity!" Came a creaky voice, "fireflies cant hear you here." It was rather large wolf spider, seemingly amused at his little rhyme, "can't hear
you here," he repeated, chuckling.
“They cant hear me here? Where's here?”
It was even more amusing to hear her repeat it.
"Pity, pity, your in a... pit!” This time laughing out loud at his own wittiness.
“Yes. A very deep pit. Pity, Pity!” chuckling more.
"Well at least I'm not alone. Will you climb out and and find someone to help?"
"Ha ha ha ha pity pity your in a pit!" he was rolling on the ground howling, by now,
"I need light. I'll never find my way out in this darkness. Please go and tell the fireflies."
Off he scrambled, repeating his cleaver line as he went “Pity, pity, your in a pit” cackling along the way. “Don’t worry”, calling back.
“I'll be back in two shakes of a lambs tail!”
“Thank you!” she called back, and then sat down to wait for help, in complete darkness and silence. Before very long, Sussura saw the faintest
glow a beautiful yellow- green firefly glow! It was so faint but it would not be much longer now. The glow grew more brilliant and its size immense.
It began to spiral, spinning faster, making Sussura dizzy to look at it, and widening into a massive, blazing, spiraling passageway. Drawing closer,
Sussura could hear voices. It was.... Night Star! and Eron!
She called out to them, "Night Star! Night Star! Eron! Eron!"
But there was no reply, and the voices began to fade... The light was losing energy, and the aperture was narrowing. Sussurra knew she had to hurry-
no time to ponder the danger, she stepped through the coiling beacon.
