^ Go Right.

You take a deep breath before turning to the right, gripping your bar tightly. The faded light seems to seep in and out of sight as if it is mocking your intent.

The floor is drier here, but even using your pipe to search the floor ahead of you for obstacles you still step on an object. 

You pick up the object.

It feels cold to the touch, possibly leather, and has a long strap. It is likely a bag. You sling it over your shoulder, and unfasten the pin to put it inside. Your fingers bump smooth glass as it drops in, clinking gingerly against the objects inside.

As you reach the furthest end of the hall a breeze rustles the bottom of your garment. The door is slightly ajar, and the air sways inside through it. You see black through the crack, but smell pine needles.

*What action do you take?

^Go towards the light and examine what can be seen.

The air is cold outside your room. You assume it must be yours, or you would not have been inside it. There is a plate on the front of the door, but it is too dark to read.

Your fingers trace the edges.

1057.

This is not a name, you decide.

The floor is smooth tile, just as your room had, but the tile is slippery under your feet. Sticky and wet. You use your trusty metal rod to test the ground in front of you, avoiding an overturned metal bed with wheels and a squishy mass to your right.

You reach the flickering light, catching scarce glimpses in the dark of shapes. Geometric, everything is straight angles and edges. There are more rooms.

There are halls stretching in three directions from you. Right, Left and Straight. The last two are unlit, but the right hallway bears a faded red sign glowing dimly at it’s end. It smells strongly. The wall nearest you has a strange, smeared handprint in red.

You awake in a strange room.

All walls and linens are sterile and white. There are no windows. A bed with slatted metal bars for a frame is tucked in the corner, and a small metal lapel pin rests on the meagre side table.

You have no lapel, you have only a knee-length white garment. It is airy.

There are no noises coming from outside.
