Cautiously, you step into the center cave. You plan to take only a few steps in, and see if you can spot any signs of habitation. However, as soon as you enter the rock tunnel, the floor collapses beneath you! You fall down into the inky blackness...

After what feels like an eternity (but is probably less than a second), you land on something hard. You cautiously stand up and check yourself over, but you don’t appear to be seriously hurt. You are at the bottom of a pit at least twelve feet deep, and the walls are smooth. You don’t think you can get out on your own.

A small, wide head pokes over the lip of the pit, its large mouth split in a wicked-looking grin. “So, the stupid little pony came to visit, eh? So sorry, but we don’t want any visitors right now. You wait down there, yes? Here, I’ll cover the pit again. I saw some other stupid ponies out prowling aroundmaybe if you’re lucky, we’ll get two in the same snare, and then you can have a friend!”

As the boggie blocks off the top of the pit once more, you scream as loud as you can. You try threatening, you try begging, you even try to appeal to his vanity, but the little demon just whistles to himself and plugs the last holes of light above you. Left in total darkness, you have no choice but to sit tight and hope that somepony finds you and Applebloom soon. With a little luck, maybe they won’t make the same mistake you did.

The End
