31 Days Of Flash Fiction - Day 10

Before you read today's flash fiction I just wanted to mention that Lineage, my first novel, is on sale for $.99 for a limited time. If you have the chance to check it out that would be great!

Now, on to today's piece...

From Below
We’ve been trapped in the mine for five days.
Four hundred feet down.
Don died yesterday morning. I’m the last one left.
But I awoke last night to noises in the small opening we’re trapped in.
Furtive, quiet, but there.
I would say it was the rescue crew, boring in, getting closer, the sounds belonging to their equipment, that freedom is not far away.
And there is light illuminating my little space where I’m crouched, which would add to my hope.
If it weren’t coming from below.
