Do Not PressWhen Chell entered the next test chamber, she looked around in confusion. The only object inside was a red button of the sort that was pressed by hand rather than by a cube, but it was significantly larger than the normal ones. She wondered if that was relevant in any fashion. It probably wasn’t.

She hefted the portal gun to one arm as she approached it, reaching out for the button with her now free hand.
The intercom clicked on. “Do not press.”
Chell hesitated and glanced around the room for another option. She didn’t see one, so she braced herself and pressed the button.
“…You pressed it,” the AI said, sounding rather put out. “Okay, lunatic, press it again. Yes, like that. One more time. Again. Do it.”
As far as the human could see, nothing was happening, but this was the most GLaDOS had spoken to her since she’d thrown her back into testing, so she pressed it again.
There was a tired sigh.
