The Hidden Ruins
Everyday Drabbles #822
We found the ruins by accident. We were exploring the coast and stumbled into a hidden cove.
The buildings were exquisite, cyclopean-scale structures carved directly into the rock, with mossy steps as tall as we were, now only visited by wheeling shorebirds.
We explored with care while debating how humans could have navigated the strange buildings.
We finally found our way inside, to a central chamber filled with statues. The figures must have been sixty feet tall, and the carvings were so marvelously detailed they seemed to be only sleeping.
At least until one of them began to roll over.
