It was a deep fall, so long it feels like eternity.
When you touch the ground you know that this was not a simple gaping hole you found in the heart of the jungle.
Was it a lava tube you were in? It seems like one and its well lit, and you see faces. They weren't normal, they seemed native. Of course, humans that live in the forest, but why behind iron bars? They all seemed to be minding their own business,as if you did not fall from the hole. There was no bed or anything, there were even some children there too.
You take a step forward and immediately the ground gives way to your first step. Luckily you had not put much force, thus you quickly move back. It was a trapdoor; in front of the iron bars, filled with lava. So they could not leave even if they manage to get through the bars. You feel a draft and you turn around.
The tunnel goes deeper and you see more iron bars, this time, sealing only one per cell. You walk deeper into the tunnel, seeing more faces behind iron bars. Were they criminals? What are they doing? Where is their village? Is this an execution ground for the villagers?
You take a turn and another turn before you stop ahead of you. It was a fall, a long drop. The 'cliff' you were standing on, was made on purpose. It was to prevent the village to leave. the village was trapped in front of you.
They moved about as if they lived here all their life. They seemed happy and normal. Glowstones were dotted around and children were squealing and chasing around adults. The adults moved about and traded with their neighbours. They moved in and out of their rooms that they dug into the cave wall. The tunnel continues deeper and you can see more village doors.
Did they not know that they were trapped?
