Next, a young girl jogs to catch up, a grin on her face and holding a strange alien-like purple plushy.

  2. What is the reason they are in the laundromat?
  3. Why is the teenager so annoyed?

  1. Who is Sarah?
  2. Why did she leave the house?
  3. Where is she heading?
  4. What kind of place is this? A farm?

An empty room, barely any light other than a thin vertical strip where the slightly uneven steel door meets up awkwardly with its frame. As your eyes adjust, you can see that the walls are simple panels and the floors a standard linoleum faux tile look of a federal office building. Suddenly a harsh overhead light flashes on, casting you in a dynamic shadows.

  1. Why are you here?
  2. Who is the person who turned on the light?
  3. What kind of building is this?
  4. What is the purpose of this room?
