In a Secret Lair – Part Seventeen

In a Secret Lair is a story about a man who lives in cave below the surface of the Earth and what he encounters.

Part XVII:

It was within this sand-like texture of grit that covered the walls of the cave that life itself was able to propagate. From simple, stationary particles of matter, dead cells miraculously sprang to life. There was a simple caveat, that went particularly unnoticed.
