My footsteps echo throughout the empty halls. Flickering lights left on illuminate the pathway just enough to see by. Water drips somewhere, creating a hollow plinking noise that is impossible to ignore. I keep walking, not getting anywhere. The walls shift and creak and the looming emptiness of the building is unavoidable. The barrenness of the whole thing sits on my back, an unnecessary pressure. I shudder with the overhanging dampness and press forward through the murky hall.
