Just take a step back and think for a moment. Really focus hard on the thoughts in your mind. Some of them will be pleasant, others quite terrifying. What I want you to do is pick one, any one, and hold on to it. Got it? Good. Now, please, step into this room.
Great, thank you. You should be able to hear my voice over the intercom. Are you still holding on to that thought? I hope it’s a pleasant one, otherwise you may have a rough go of things. I’m going to shut the lights off in five.
Ah, I hear you screaming even through this thick, protective glass. That’s a shame. You know, it’s funny. Nobody ever picks a pleasant memory. Don’t worry though, the agreement you signed before you came in today should guarantee that your loved ones are well taken care of in your absence. I’m going to turn the lights back on, and this will all be over in five.
