An Unexpected Entrance
As I look around reluctantly at the topic I had been shoved into, I wasn't sure if I should feel annoyed, scared or just confused. Sure, in my group we'd had some crazy times, but I'd never been locked in a birthday topic by my usually rational and collected leader!
There are cats here, but I can't see them. I like cats. I like when they purr and rub against you. I don't like cats when it's dark out and they're slinking around invisible to me.
They're doing that now.
I stumble forward to where a guestbook awaits next to the door out of this dank vestibule: inside I can sense there is noise and, more importantly, light. A thin shaft of brightness peeks through the door, shedding a dim light on the book which I hastily sign. Hands trembling I open the door, close my eyes and step in.
It's a moment in my currently hyperventilative state where I'm glad I can control sound. I float in a soundless and dark void with nothing to bother m-
Darn that cat! Did it just bite me?
I have to do something, but escape is all I can think of. Still blind I turn around, fleeing through the door. The words 'happy birthday' must have escaped my mouth before I slam the door. I feel in the dark for the handle to the topic and, mercifully finding it unlocked, flee outside into the freedom of COT.
A writerly happy birthday to my fellow Ambager Katie! And yes, Velox made me do this.
Well, the story part was my innovation.
