...The blob's screams rose and fell with each droplet, and the whisky rain took it's devastating toll as the massive blob melted before
his eyes and dissolved into one single dirty puddle on the floor.
"Hehe! Noo who wid have thought it??
Whisky of aw the things!!
But, Ah cannie believe ah wasted ma last drop o' the guid stuff on that cratur!
Now, how the hell dae ah get oot o' here and find Sporky??"
The Big fella slipped his Sword back into it's scabbard, stepped over the "muddy puddle" left by the mysterious Blob, and made his way
around the plinths and back over to the smooth wall.
This was where he had managed to find a raised lump in the wall's surface, which seemed to control the lights and weird noises from earlier.
He closely examined the lump on the wall, but it was completely featureless. Smooth surfaced, the same material as.... everything in the room
He placed his hand on it, and immediately the "mwahhaaaooo" sound started again... he pressed hard, but it made no difference, so he twisted his wrist
to the left.... and.... The sound stopped!
But the lights went out and he was once more plunged into total darkness.
He quickly jerked his wrist around to the right and, not only did the lights come back on, but the further right he went, the more white and less blue
Next, he tried tapping the lump - once at first, then twice.. and WHOOSH! A door swiftly slid open right next to the lump!
He peered out into the dimly lit corridor, then tried turning his hand on the lump again.... and he somehow managed to dim the lights in the room down
to a dull, dark blue this time.
Now, it was much easier to see into the area outside the room. It looked like a corridor of sorts, again made of the same smooth metallic material
which covered the room.
The walls were featureless, apart from the same kind of "lumps" as he'd just used, which were evenly spaced along the length of the corridor, maybe 20
Gordi stepped out into the corridor and decided to head down to the right... after about 80 feet or so, the corridor made a sharp left turn, and on
looking around the corner he could see that the same featureless passage continued on into the distance there.
A curious smell met his nose, something that he'd never encountered before... like... turpentine or creosote, tar and raw alcoholic spirits? and there
was the faintest whisper of a bubbling sound farther ahead...
He eased himself quietly down towards the noise and the smells grew stronger, more pungent... and suddenly WHOOSH!
Right beside him a door slid open and a tiny ball of green fur no bigger than a rabbit, came rolling out and passed between his legs! before trundling
off down the way he had just come.
Gordi took a deep breath and stepped forward to look into the open chamber by his side... it too was dimly lit... and it took a second for his eyes to
properly adjust, but there... on a larger version of the plinth he had just found himself on... was his old pal Sporky!
