A short story.

As John stepped into the cave with curiosity,his sense of vision seemed to blur more and the scenery around him where the cave was supposed to be,started to distort into a swirling motion.And as John decided to get out of the cave,the entrance became farther and farther away and seemingly out of nowhere the cave entrance shut with rock with a speed that should not have been possible for mere stones.Then at the exact moment the cave shut John's vision turned black and John passed out.When John woke up the cave entrance was open again.still tired from his passing out earlier,John decided to slowly walk out but as he walked out he felt something wrong that he couldn't quite describe.But he still decided to walk out against his better judgment and as he walked out of the cave.But as he walked out the landscape was different from when John came in the cave.Instinctively John looked back,only to find that the cave was gone.At that moment John then decided to explore out in this new strange landscape.As John walked out to explore he noticed something like a liquid in the distance.Realising how thirsty he was John decided to walk towards the liquid like substance hoping it to be water.As John walked towards the liquid like substance and got closer and closer John saw that the liquid like substance was not at all water and looked like something melting.But John still walked closer simply as there was nothing else to do in the strange landscape and curiosity.As John came closer he realised the melting object was infact a clock and there were many more melting clocks all around him.But as soon as John realised that the melting objects were clocks time slowed,and at that moment like the clocks the land started to slowly melt and eventually the land-with John in it froze seemingly in time and John realised that he would stay in this moment forever,all alone with only the company of the melting clocks.
