Part 14


Near the bottom of the pit, the mine spread into several tunnels. There was another guard before each entrance, and they were instructed to go inside the third. Whereas before they were hot, the surrounding air was now much cold, and there was no sun to keep them warm. The tunnel grew very dark very fast, and their eyes needed a while to adapt.

Several workers in front of them began lighting up their Lyterite by striking it against the wall to produce the sparks needed to ignite. Many of them also threw them into the wall in the hopes of igniting it so as to avoid scraping their nails against the rock wall. The ignited rocks were down simply dropped to the ground to illuminate the area. When their eyes finally adjusted to the lower brightness and they weren't as distracted anymore, they looked up and saw distinct veins inside the bedrock all around them. They were a deep shade of blue – near purple – and it appeared as if they emmitted light on their own. The two looked at the glowing veins and then back at each other several times before they were finally convinced that what they were seeing was in fact real, and not an illusion. They were afraid to touch it, but couldn't stop to get a good look of it because of the forward moving herd of workers. They were near the head of the group for that specific tunnel and so needed to advance near all the way to its end.
