The misshapen cave walls gave way to orderly piles of cleared rubble as Gregor led him deeper toward the site.

“Amazing they didn’t come back after you left,” Malden said as they entered the remnants of the worker's camp.

“The trick is employing idiots. Trust me, no one but Gregor could find this again.”

Gregor’s torchlight danced on the walls, and Jacob was sure someone watched from the shadows. He kept his holster unlatched.

“Come here.”

After years of traveling through Egypt, Persia, India, and Africa, Jacob Malden laid eyes on the most amazing sight he had yet to behold.


Author’s Note

Welcome to A Microdose of Fiction, a series of genre fiction micro-stories that offer you an exclusive glimpse into expansive worlds. Every week, new installments and stand-alone adventures, all under 101 words, will transport you to far-flung worlds. I hope that these stories will provide entertainment while you eat your toast, and start your day on an adventurous note.

Make sure to check out the most recent releases of the current series, The Final Expedition and the Twilight of Ares, which will be pinned to my profile, and prepare to embark on a journey of imagination in bite-sized portions. Stay tuned for more exciting adventures to come!

The next episode of The Final Expedition will drop on 8/11. Subscribe to get it delivered directly to your feed and enjoy a quick read over your next cup of coffee.

I’ll be keeping these stories in the fiction community for now, but am already working on the next series which will be in the ~200 word range per post. I’m debating moving over to Chapters. More to come.
