Somehow, through sheer panic and adrenalin, I manage to climb out of the well.
As I lay there exhausted, Weena finds me and is so happy. But her happiness soon turns to worry again. She's trying to warn me about the "dark nights" that are coming. I think I understand. Under a bright full moon, like there was when I arrived, the Morlocks seldom come out. But each month around the new moon, when the nights are darkest, that's when the Morlocks come out in big numbers to round up Eloi for their food!
Still, I have to find my time machine - or some way to get the tools to build another! Should I try to reach the big green palace? Or go back again to where I last saw the machine? Or do something else?
