With the exception of the door you first came out of, all of the doors thus far have been locked. You are starting to enter the part of the hall where the lights are wigging out.
>Give yourself a comforting hug.
You do so before continuing on to open doors as per your previous plan.
You feel surprisingly comforted.
>Pull those splinters out LIKE A MAN and it’s time to start opening doors!
Yeah, okay, you can do that.
>Can you shift any of the rubble at the caved-in end of the hall? Or can you see anything through the cracks? It might not lead to outside, it might just lead to another, bigger, brighter room. Maybe sniff at the air that’s coming through? The outdoors tends to smell different than inside does.
The debris is not shiftable, in fact you get a handful of splinters while trying. Lame.
Most of the cracks are a little too small or located in places that you can’t quite get to, but eventually you’re able to make out what looks like the big, bright outdoor world. And it smells like the outdoors too, maybe a little like… pine trees?
To your left, the hallway extends. There is a great deal of less light this way. There are a few more closed doors and what looks like an entry way to another room, hallway, or staircase at the end.
You decide it officially looks creepy as balls.
You also have the sinking feeling that you’re going to end up going this way.
Anything you need to do before you leave this area?
>Carefully look out into the hall and hope that if there’s anything with malicious intentions out there that you see it before it sees you.
You carefully look out into the hall, to the right of the door where you heard the footsteps fade. Much to your surprise, the hallway here is collapsed. You’re not sure if anything could have gotten through there, no less something of the size of… whatever that was, and you didn’t hear any doors open or closed.
Light flickers out of a few of the top cracks and holes. It appears to be daytime outside.
>This would be a good time to learn how to blend in with the wallpaper.
Your sweater, despite being the epitome of style and comfort, does not lend much to stealth. And although you try, it’s apparent after a moment or two that your wallpaper-blending-abilities are very much lacking.
