THE VORTEX



Copyright – Danny Bowman

“It’s not a mountain, it’s a vortex! Don’t go anywhere near it. It’s cursed! People don’t come back alive after they’ve climbed it,” Diana, the tour guide, warned her group of tourists.

“It’s just a myth,” Henry pulled a face. He wanted to see it for himself. The view from the top would be incredible; he was unable to resist the temptation. Breaking away from the group, he headed out on his own.

The air felt strange as soon as he stepped on the rocks. Weird faces appeared, faces of the dead. Sucked in, Henry never came back!

  6. Well written. I guess that's what can happen if you don't listen to the tour guide. That's why they're there.

  7. There are always those people who can't take anyone's word for it. Of course, in situations like this, finding out for yourself is kind of a big deal. :)
