"'Please!' they cry. 'There is danger ahead!'
The danger is behind! I scream back in my mind. But I see what they mean. A feeble stream of light, coming from who knows where, shines on the end of the hall. It is not the flat wall or the locked door, the dead end I feared and expected. It is a black hole.
An elevator shaft. Abandoned, empty, and condemned, like this building. Once a hiding place, now a tomb.
[...] I don't even pause at the end of the floor. The hole rises up to meet me mistride.
[...] I hear the thud before I feel it....
The wind is gone....
And then pain is everywhere.... Pain is everything.
Make it stop.
Not high enough, I whisper to myself through the pain.
When will the pain end? When ...?"
This is the beginning of a love story.
