Industrial Nightmare - part 5

'A Narrow Escape'

Leaping blindly from the conveyors above, Skinner finds himself falling toward moving cogs, chains, and wheels below. His feet strike a spinning flywheel which in turn sends him sideways slamming into a metal wall ... his breath is knocked from his chest as he plunges into yet another part of the machinery. A heavy chain pulls his arm into the fray and as he jerks frantically to pull it out he slides down an impossibly narrow gap between the whirring cogs and flywheels. The chain snags his shirt this time... as his head is pulled toward a sprocket, he embraces his certain death ... the shortest of moments becomes an eternity...

...and then it stops.

The machines and moving parts around him come to a complete halt and the deafening hydraulic and mechanical cacaphony ceases with one final hiss of compressed air escaping. Skinner doesn't breath for almost ten seconds as he realizes he is still alive. A scream of terror involuntarily escapes him and he struggles violently to free himself. After thrashing about he slides free of the confined space and finds himself dropping yet again into the darkness below where he lands with an awkward thud on a dirty concrete floor.

Skinner lays still for a few seconds until his breath returns and then surveys his situation. Somehow he has escaped serious injury! He lays for awhile longer shaking and breathing erratically until he can muster the nerve to start moving again. He crawls under pipes and the rusty underbelly of some vast machine toward a thin strand of light. Insane laughter and squeaking wheels can be heard fading off into the distance.


more to come! ... thanks for your interest and support my friends! :wave:

This image is one of those that makes you cringe when you first glance at it. Something that defies the ordinary but does it in an amazing way. Great work!

En este mundo moderno, solo miramos alrededor y todo ahora es una pesadilla industrial, con las maquinas y tecnologías altamente avanzadas.
Muy buena Foto.

Wow, you're inspiring a story I want to write as well. While a big story series still in the making proceeds safely, I can write one "What If?" about the opposite effect.
An older but nonexistent version of me is given the offer to work for a British competitor against his own company, to spare his friends' life. Here, he did sign up, so the new factory this competitor made used my alter-ego to design machines that would enable total world domination by owning all the world's technology....but worse still, the factory itself contains a horrible secret: Within its maintenance areas is a passage to an alternate dimension, the very Hell of all Machines. The evil seeping from there changes the mass-produced machines that would change every human that used them.

Sound interesting?
