Climbing down first, Lixa landed on the cold platformic steps. "Woah, sweet."
As everyone else followed downward, the same reaction was had.
"This is pretty nifty..." said Bill, who peeked inside one of the many boxes scattered around.
"I don't know." Ewan said, "Something about this place feels really weird..."
"Yeah," Cee said, "I don't like it."
"Oh come on!" Yelled Lixa, "It's not like Sasha Nein is gonna walk in and kill us all."
"...but then again, what if he did?"
"Point taken." Lixa shivered a little, the lab was quite cold... "Maybe we should go do something else."
"Like what?" Hunter asked
"...I like it."
"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."
