A short story about two boys who discover a hidden beach and the evil deadly secrets that lie within its soft white grains of sand.
When they reached the cave, they stopped.
Junior turned on his dad’s flashlight, which pushed out a light that was almost worthy of spotlight status. This light was somewhat soothing to the boys even though their heart rate didn’t agree. They were now beyond timid. They had now moved on to full-blown scared, but they weren’t about to turn around now.
They made their way into the cave with caution and ease, as the darkness wrapped around their small little bodies. It was a suffocating darkness, and Seth could swear he couldn’t breathe once they were inside. He wondered if Junior was feeling the same effect.
Seth looked behind him, and it was disheartening to see the full moon light was now gone none of its beams could penetrate this darkness.
They moved on, deeper into the cave, Junior’s beam of light doing its best to cut through the black. Seth thought it looked like it was struggling to do its job, but it gave them enough light to see by.
In every corner there stood a ghost or goblin, or some fiend ready to snuff out their young life, vague objects picked up by the struggling light. The coolness of the cave helped to add to this and so did the wind. Its voice inside the cave (stronger than the last time they were here) was one of a ghost like howl.
Somehow they found the entrance that led to the abandoned beach, found it or were guided to it – something to ponder upon.
“Are you sure about this?” Seth didn’t care if he was called a baby or not. He was on shaky knees, and he wasn’t afraid to admit it.
Junior surprised him with this answer. “We can turn back now if you want.”
Seth thought about it for a moment. “We’ve come this far. Why turn back now?”
The boys gave one more pause, and then they stepped through the hole and onto the abandoned beach . . .
