I Can Feel You. Chapter 7Following her companion through the facility, Riley’s thoughts fought with each other for space in her mind. Now was the moment when she truly wished she could see at least something, but, on the other hand, the other part of her told her that ignorance is bliss. This psychological friction inside her sometimes felt almost unbearable. Most of all she wanted to know where exactly she was and where to go, but the wish to know what her mysterious companion looked like was stronger. But the knowledge about the other monsters lurking around spoke the contrary. If she saw any of them she sure would have freaked out and fallen into a state of panic. So she concluded that there is never anything bad without good. The same could be said about her being chosen as a test subject for experiments with monsters, but she ended up finding a true friend among them. So life is not always unfair, isn’t it?

She felt him caring about her.
“Strange,” she mumbled more to herself. “I can hear my footsteps only but can’t hear yours. It’s like you’re floating instead of walking. And what is that sound of someone crying for help? I know now that it’s not you. Is there anyone else alive here?”
