Short story:
One hot afternoon Emanuel was trekking through the rainforests of a South American rainforest. He was there on a a research grant to find a rare endangered species of snake called the Fuerte Verdium. After a long night on very small plane overwhelmed by flowery perfume of the old woman next to him, he was ready to be out in the fresh air.
Eventual afer hours of trekking he came to a small stream sourounded by a steep cliff wall with vines climbing up the towering rocks. Emanuel strolled along the rockwall feeling the rough edges with the tips of his fingers. He stared intently as he traced each rock looking for a loose rock that might give way and reveal the common hiding place of the Fuerte Verdium. Finally he came to a stop. His hands gripped a protruding rock and with a little bit of elbow grease Emanuel was able to free the rock from its once permanent lodging. To his surprise behind the rock was no green snake, but rather a green pole with a large red button secured to the middle.
Like any curious adventurer with three hours of sleep Emanuel pressed the button and the ground beneath his feet gave out. He fell into a deep black hole landing on the hard concrete bellow. Above him the trap door snapped shut. After a minute of adjusting to the darkness Emanuell was able to make out a strange square lights of a warehouse off in the distance.
