Here's mine:

After all this time, there it was.  "Look Shen, on the wall." Nakyte saw a small opening between two carved panels.  She passed through this hall every day but had never noticed the gap in the carvings.   Maybe there was a latch.  She handed the torch to Shen.
"Be careful, it might be rigged," he whispered.
"So you do care?" She asked.
"Hey, if you set off a trap I'm going to be stuck too."  He hoped she couldn't detect his true feelings for her.  It would never work between them.  It couldn't.  Their worlds were too different.  It was much easier if she didn't know. 
"Hey, I think I got it!"  Nakyte whispered.  There was a loud click and the wall opened to a dark passageway.  Nakyte and Shen peered into blackness.  Shen stepped in and held the torch high to illuminate their way.   A rush of cold moist air filled the space around them. 
"Come on," Shen motioned.  A maze of passages appeared before them.
"Which one do we take?"  Nakyte asked.
"It's the propehcy…we must choose the 'glowing path in the darkness to find answer which lies in the inner chamber.'  Shen remembered the prophecy that old Lorian had taught him so long ago. 
"That doesn't help Shen, I don't see a glowing path.  And doesn't the rest of the propehcy say we die if we pick the wrong one?"
"Yeah, well I have a good feeling about this one, for now that will have to do."

Hope you enjoyed it!  And check out the other entries.
