The Tunnel by Wayne C. Rogers
Corporal Ben Freeman didn’t know what was behind him in the tunnel near the Cambodian border. Whatever it was had killed the other two men in his team and was now after him.
He could see a glimmer of light ahead and crawled faster.
Freeman reached the bottom of the shaft and made his way swiftly up the rickety ladder. He was within a few feet of sunlight when he unexpectedly felt a grip around his left ankle. It jerked him off the ladder and dragged him back into the long tunnel.
All he had time for was one scream.
