For the Rainbow challenge – ‘Yellow'. 'When first we practice to deceive...'

‘Ah, good,’ thought the goblin foot-soldier, ‘this is a nice dark spot, away from the main paths. A good place to sit quietly and avoid work.’

There was so much work these days; patrols that took a week or more, heavy lifting and carrying when not on patrol, with not much by way of rations, either.

This tunnel was dry, quiet, not the slightest draught stirred the drifting spider webs. He rested his head back on his pack, his eyelids heavy; and didn’t notice around him, as if someone had thrown a switch, hundreds of yellow eyes flick open.
