It’s two o’clock in the morning and I’ve been at this for hours.
There is a chair, and I am sitting in it.
There is a small off-white colored room, and I am sitting on a chair inside of the room.
There is a door, and it is locked.
There are dim flourescent light, and they are on.
There is a chair, inside of a dimly lit, small, off-white colored room that has a light switch with the door locked, and I am sitting in it.
I am facing the light switch.
One more try.
Focus on the light switch. Feel the connection from across the room.
As the lights shut off, you hear the flicking off of the light switch magnified like a gunshot in the now dark silence.
“Ok,” I say. “I did it. Now let me out.”
The speaker on the wall says: “You will remain in testing until further notice.”
“If I can turn the lights off, I can unlock the door.” I warn.
The speaker disconnects, leaving only the sound of static behind.
They leave me no choice…..
Click Goes the lock, and off I go.
