Neville looked down at the black hole in his allotment.

Black, totally black. So black that you could not see a thing in it.

Was it deep? Was it shallow? There was no way of knowing, none whatsoever.

He couldn’t see the bottom, only blackness.

Tentatively, and holding on to a convenient post, he put one foot into the hole. Right into it.

The foot disappeared completely. He could not feel a thing - but the foot was gone!

Carefully he bent his knee and pulled his foot out.

It was glowing a bright luminous green!

“Hello,” he thought, “something’s afoot!”
