What Lies Beneath, The Quest continued…

The Quest

The entrance was eventually sealed, and all accounts of such an existence erased from history.   To unearth such knowledge and awaken what is meant to remain dormant would bring forth the end.   Still it was only the suggestion of such a history that beckoned men to continue their search; a pursuit that eventually led us to this place.  I am fully aware of the silence; it is the quiet that gives me purpose.  So with only a light to guide my way I keep close to the cavern walls and make my descent into the unknown.  The etchings begin to tell a story, they are more detailed the further I advance.  As the hours pass, my thoughts begin to wander and I realize that I must find a place to rest.  Alone in the darkness with only my thoughts, I copy the symbols I committed to memory into a notebook.  Although the symbols themselves are unfamiliar, they begin to follow a pattern.  I will rest here for a while before continuing on.  I hope to be reunited with my colleagues; together we have the ability to unlock the mysteries that have remained hidden for centuries.

The Quest

For centuries men have tried to decipher the secret markings barely visible at the base of the Temple.  The etchings display symbols that are unrelated to any known.  The inscriptions are only mentioned two times throughout the entire Mayan history.   Still no man dare undermine the foundation of the Temple; to dig without cause could destroy centuries old treasures.  Throughout history men have discovered underground passages; built to intentionally fool thieves.  These empty tunnels lead the unsuspecting to a dead end.  Set in place with a purpose; for purpose is found in all things.  For thousands of years their secrets remained safe; when first the entrance to the mine was unearthed it was believed to be another hoax.   Men searched the caverns looking for hidden treasure; but it wasn’t fortune that these men would discover.  Instead something evil and deadly would find them.  Hidden beyond our reach, man would come to understand that we are not alone, there are others…

The Quest

My name is Tedesco and I am the sole survivor of an eight-man expedition. Should I reach the surface; my story will change the course of human kind.  However I do not believe that this is mine to share.  All those who came before me, have met the same fate, their shattered paths set before me, left behind to lend caution.  We as humans are taught never to surrender; to fight until our last breath.  I fear that alone I cannot escape this vast black underground, I am trapped within a maze of endless fractures; meant to confuse man and keep their secret concealed.  However I now know the truth, and what I have learned must never be exposed, for mankind can never know the truth!  When I first learned of this place; I focused upon the advances that could come from such a discovery.  Possibly the knowledge of a greater existence could bring forth unity among nations or cure our most deadly diseases, but there is no hope here, only death.   Alone there is little I can do to assure that this secret remains locked inside the earth, still I will do all that is humanly possible to protect mankind.

The Quest

Tedesco is part of an eight man scientific expedition; chosen to explore the mines beneath the Mayan Temples.  Each was made aware of the dangers that exist within the mines.  For this is no ordinary expedition, this particular quest would test mans ability to survive without the use of modern equipment.  Cell phones and tracking devices only complicate an already difficult passage, because the signals become scrambled and are lost once beneath the surface of the earth.  The mines were kept secret for centuries, sealed off and hidden from man to protect what only a handful of explorers have been privy too.  These were no ordinary passages; these deep caverns have been carved beneath the earth’s surface by a force much greater then man himself.  With only ancient artifacts and fragmented accounts to guide his way, Tedesco begins his decent into the unknown.  What man has awakened cannot be undone…
