The Mineshaft

Walking down an old abandoned gravel path, every step I took, I was one step closer to possibly finding gold. Suddenly, I was there, the entrance to the mineshaft before me. My friend Viola was there waiting for me. ‘Are you sure it’s safe?’ she asked timidly. Even I wasn’t sure. Slowly and cautiously we entered the mine, covered in cobwebs we searched the cave for over an hour. I spotted something glistening,  I pelted over to it. It seemed to be an ancient bar of gold. I shouted with disbelief, it was in my grasp. Without warning, I heard cracks and pops throughout the mine. I knew I had just caused a cave in. All hope was lost, this was the end of the road.
