Something's in the Sewers

Imagine you've been hired at the water treatment plant in Eastbourne, East Sussex in the United Kingdom. Your job requires descending into the city sewers each day. The tunnels below the streets are dark and dangerous, and it's easy to lose your way.

Now imagine that you're going about your business one evening when you begin to sense that you're being followed. As far as you know, you're alone down there. But you hear the distinct sound of footsteps splashing through the water that trickles through the tunnels. You catch a glimpse of a figure slipping around a corner. You may even hear the sound of voices echoing in the distance.

This isn't fiction. Many of the water treatment plant's workers claim they're being "stalked" by a "humanoid figure" that follows them through the tunnels. They've even called in an expert in the paranormal to investigate. Until he comes up with a logical explanation, I think I'd take a little time off.

Hmm, maybe it's the local teenagers trying to freak out the workers, so they're sneaking around down there.

Or maybe a criminal mastermind is using the tunnels as a hideout and all her minions are down there too.

What a great plot for a novel to center on. ^^ That's really awesome, though, and at the same time undeniably creepy. Which is always a good combination. (:

It could be a hungry ghost. I hope it's a hungry ghost... xD

no, it's just the echo of your own footsteps.

I've been in a pitch black cave without a flash light before (with a tour guide and a group, of course). I nearly screamed to death. >.>;;
