I reach my hand into darkness. I touch soft fur!

The suddenly the creature leaps out, and rushes past me! It all happens so fast, but the sun is up now. and for a split second I get a good look! It's some sort of white ape! It jumps into the bushes, near one of those strange wells!

Should I go and have a look? Or should I stop and think what this all means? Or do something else?
