This was my entry for Cracked Flash Fiction Competition on the 13th of May.

The Frozen Cave

By Ronel Janse van Vuuren

24 tales of Speculative Fiction (ranging from science-fiction to fantasy to magical realism) with a Dark Fantasy undertone running from outer space, strange advancements in technology to the subtle things that make characters tick in a supposedly normal world.

I wrote this on a chilly – I mean freezing – Saturday morning with lots of rain and an ice wind. The setting just came to me and the ending was quite a surprise.
