Oh, Hi there! I didn’t notice you there at first. Hellooo? Can you hear me? Is there something in the way? Oh, you must be paralyzed by my beauty! It seems as if you are trapped in that small black box. Come just a bit closer and let me see if I can assist you. Hello? Oh dear, it seems I’ll need someone else to help get you out of there! Wait! No, don’t leave! I’ll be here to assist you. Just give me a second to see if anyone else is around to help! You know, it’s like you are in a different dimension and all you need is someone else to help you, but you’re just like stuck in this goddamned place alone! Eh, story of my life! Anyways, just wait here, I’ll be right back. Just, watch out for those things coming up behind you... Oh… Too Late… [Lelia Pollett]
