Going gently

Despite its drab, dusty appearance, the tendrils of this big plant in the middle of the forest pulsated invitingly, drawing me into its center.

Where I am now, waiting to be digested.

Thank God I had with me my Android smartphone and good reception, allowing me to post this for posterity.

What number do I call in this godforsaken country where no-one knows me?

Written around drab, pulsate and tendril from 3WW CCCXIV.

I expanded the story slightly based on a logical flaw revealed by a comment, “You can use a smartphone to call for help, you know…”. Thank you, J. Cosmo Newbery!
