THE GRAY KING

A SHORT STORY



He opened one eye, slowly and inert. Then, after many hours he opened the other, just as indolently as the first and gazed with his stone-gray eyes motionless into the darkness of the cavern surrounding him. The stalactites had grown longer, the stalagmites had grown taller and some of them had already merged into monumental pillars circling a massive natural stone table. Some more hours passed as he observed the cavernous hall (or rather the hall-like cavern) with a lazy stare. Occasionally there was some movement between the rocks and flowstones, a slow yet determined movement of small creatures shuffling from pillar to pillar.
