[Short Story] The Land Underground

source

Gentle folk, children, come gather round. I’ll tell you the tale of the land underground.
“What? A land underground? Do you know how you sound?” No doubt like the crazy old man of the town!

Yet it’s real as the eyebrows you raise at me now, as real as the dubious look on your face. It isn’t a vision, a myth or a ruse, but by my own blood, it’s an actual place.
