The following quote is taken from Dragonfly In Amber by Diana Gabaldon, chapter 29, To Grasp The Nettle, Copyright © 1992 by Diana Gabaldon, All Rights Reserved.

        “That was the entrance, once,” he said. “The rocks fell once before, and sealed this place.” He turned back and rested a hand on the rocky outcrop that shielded the lovers from the light.

       “They must have felt their way around the cave, hand in hand,” I said. “Looking for a way out, in the dust and the dark.”

       “Aye.” He rested his forehead against the stone, eyes closed. “And the light was gone, and the air failed them. And so they lay down in the dark to die.” The tears made wet tracks through the dust on his cheeks. I brushed a hand beneath my own eyes, and took his free hand, carefully weaving my fingers with his.
