I need to know more. Is our journey worth The fear waiting. “Join us. Help us find the door.” Luke won’t let Nightmares stop him. He grins and nods. “Tell me more.” “Quick and dirty,” I begin, “There may be a way out of Hotel Hell.” His eyes light up. José shudders and I squeeze His hand. Luke let’s out a cough. “I got lost earlier and A snake warned me that something Is different about us. He Said this place is where people In comas go but he could Tell that I was dead. So I’m Thinking the experiment We were part of is keeping Our bodies alive even After death so we can see What happens here and report Our experience.” Luke laughs. “You got all that from a damn Talking snake?” I roll my eyes. “Like the talking goose you swear You saw during the study.” “I’m not sure that wasn’t part of This whole damn thing.” I giggle. “I’ve seen wild shit here, let’s get the fuck out.” I squeeze Luke’s neck and tell him all About the doors and the Eleven floors. “I can’t go,” Tommy cries. “Why not?” “Something tells me I’m not ready.” I frown. “This place ain’t as Scary as my old home.” One last hug for Tommy. Into the park.
