Ave was in the building, climbing down a staircase. She was heading to the basement, so she could cut the powr and set off security lockdown. If there was no way of getting in, than a serious chunk of problem had been taken out. She was nearing the bottem when footsteps were heard above her. She ran to the bottem of the stairs and hid under the stairs. Pushing herself against the wall, she held her breath and hid. "Hello?" Yelled a male voice, "Anybody in here?? Hellooooooo???" She remained silent as the footsteps drew closer. Finally the footsteps stopped right above here, and a knock was heard. "Hmm..." Ave though, "Where is that knocking comin fro--" She didn't have time to finish her thought, because everything went black.
"A few times in my life I've had moments of absolute clarity. When for a few brief seconds, the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I've lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be."
