Catacombs: Occupied!

(Read the story so far here!)

As the light hit the corners of the alcove, an albino rat the size of a house cat hissed at her intrusion. Lydia scowled and hissed back at the creature. She stepped forward. The rat retreated to the edge of the lamp’s glow and glared at her with its beady red eyes. Lydia settled down with her back against the corners of the nook. She sifted through the various jars in her apron pockets and settled on some walnuts.

The rat sniffed from its spot, hesitating to move forward. Lydia grinned at the creature and tossed it a few nuts.
