The giant drill, now primed and ready, began to bore into the bedrock. Sparks flew out as the giant behemoth scraped and wore away at it, making minimal progress. Lord knows, no one could afford to replace the machine if it broke down, but the risk was worth the reward. If the maps were right, there was something valuable… no, priceless buried under here. Everyone just hoped that whatever it was didn’t get destroyed by the drill.
Days went by as the machine continued to bore through the mantel.
