Cave of Hatred

Nora, Lindsay, and R.J. are trapped in a cave on the outskirts of Llanview.

"I am trapped down here because of you two!" Nora shouted.

Would you stop complaining and relax so we can find a way out of here?" Lindsay said irritated.


HEY!" Lindsay and R.J. yelled in unison.

"Nora do you really think we want to be stuck down here with you?" R.J. growled.

"I really don't care what you think R.J. I just want to go home to my family. The people whom love me and that I love so dearly." Nora said through gritted teeth.

"Why don't you get off your high horse and try to help find a way out of here? Despite what you think, you are not queen of the cave, so shut your mouth and help. "Lindsay said.

(Nora was speechless)

"Why don't we gather all our supplies together and then come up with a plan?" R.J. suggested.

"The only 'supplies' that we have are a half-eaten granola bar, a tube of lipstick, and three cell phones with no reception. What do you suppose we do with that MacGyver?" Lindsay said sarcastically.

"I don't see you coming up with a better plan; at least I'm trying to get us out." R.J. Said.

"As much as I have to admit it, R.J. is right. So what do we know?" Nora asked defeated.

"The only way out is up." Lindsay said looking up.

"So we should move rocks, big rocks, and position them as stairs to climb our way out." Nora suggested.

(The three began moving the rocks and were almost finished when a rock slipped causing a rock avalanche, crushing Nora underneath the rubble. Lindsay & R.J. looked on in horror.)

"We have to save her, don't we?" Lindsay groaned.

"Yes." R.J. sighed.

(The two pulled away the rocks and rebuilt the rock stairs simultaneously.)

"She's still has a pulse." Lindsay said.

"Nora, come on wake up." R.J. whispered.

(Two hours later)

They made sure the stairs were fortified before they tried leaving again. R.J. went for help and left Lindsay and Nora alone, together.

"Out of all the people I could be trapped with it's you. I wish R.J. would just hurry up and find help and get us back to civilization". Lindsay said to a still unconscious Nora.

"You think I'm happy waking up and seeing your face. And what do you know about being civil. I didn't think that word was in your vocabulary." Nora whispered as she began to stir and open her eyes.

"Civil? I am the one who saved your life and I can't get a little thank you. You know, if it weren't R.J. and me, you would still be trapped under all these rocks. You should be thanking me, not insulting me." Lindsay said.

"Thank you Lindsay for saving my life." Nora said genuinely.

"Don't mention it. You would've done the same." Lindsay admitted.

Sure, of course I wouldn't let you die even if I really wanted you to." Nora said.

"Aren't you sweet?" Lindsay sneered at Nora.

About an hour later, R.J. came with help and they were rescued. They all went their separate ways never discussing the cave again even when they ran into each other and shared choice words with each other. They would never admit it but they all didn't hate each other as much as they thought.

The End
