The darkness surrounds you...

You cannot see an inch in front of your face. Mud squelches underneath your feet, an owl hoots overhead. Frantically, you lurch through the darkness. Then, defeated, you sink to the ground. Looking up, you see a tiny blue light, skipping lightly across the ground. Seeing nothing else to do, you follow it. For a long time, you follow your silent guide, until suddenly it disappears and you bump into hard rock. Feeling around, you stumble across the entrance of a cave. Undecided, you stare back into the forest from which you came, feeling it's eyes upon you. Then you peek into the cave. All is pitch black, and the crickets from the forest have quieted, making all quiet. Will you dare the noiselessness?
