Some of the branches moved around in the mud at the edges.Ben suddenly looked up at her. “Move,” he said, quietly, but firmly.She looked back at him. “What?”“Move. Get off the branches. Quick!”As she started to lift her foot there was a slight crack and the branches shifted in the mud again. Suddenly, there was more shifting and the ground seemed to give way beneath them. She glanced round at Ben who was still crouching. Her heart stopped as she saw the terrified expression on his face.As they started to fall through, she saw him twist awkwardly. She turned to grab hold of something. The branches were no good, so she dug her fingers into the side of the ever-deepening pit. All she got were handfuls of mud. She fell faster, losing grip of the side and falling with the branches. She twisted as well, as one crashed into her legs throwing her over. The sides of the pit shot past. Down she fell. Still further. It seemed ages before the ground arrived, but arrive it did. With full force! She landed on her back, the wind knocked out of her, and she was finally covered in mud and branches...While she is on holiday with her family, Anne Downes storms off in a huff. Followed by her brother, Ben, they enter a cave where they examine a curious array of branches on the floor. Suddenly the ground gives way from beneath them and they tumble ten metres down into a tunnel. Anne drags her unconscious brother further up, as another cave-in blocks them in. Ben has suffered a broken leg, but to make matters worse, Anne is a diabetic, and without food, she will only survive a matter of hours.
