Prompt: #61 - Mouth (for [community profile] fiction_drabbles)

When confronted with the reality of having to go into the gaping mouth of the cave to rescue our friend, I wasn't surprised to see Simon balk. He wasn't one to take kindly to anything that resembled actual work, unless it benefited him personally in some way.

"If you don't want to go, you don't have to," I said.

"Well, hurry up then," he said. "You've got ten minutes."

I left him behind and stepped into the darkness alone. My voice quieted, betraying the nervousness I was feeling. "Someone's got to be the hero. Guess it's going to be me."
