Man… I was drooling… This is not very comfortable.
Not that sleeping against a hard surface has ever been comfortable…

“Wait, what?”
I open up my eyes suddenly and get up as quickly as I can, as if I hadn’t been complaining about sleeping face first in a pool of my own drool for at least ten minutes. My whole body feels just as expected from having slept for who-knows-how-long on the floor and I have to blink for a few seconds before I become aware of my surroundings…
If we can actually call that “surroundings”.
In front of me? A long corridor that looks like it has no end.
Behind me? A wall.
“Where the fuck am I?” is the only thing I can ask myself, and you can at least give me this, it is a rather logical train of thought in that situation. I could look around myself like an idiot for hours, nothing would change – it’s just the emptiest corridor I’ve ever seen and I can bet it’s the longest too.
“What am I supposed to do now?” I ask myself, and I don’t know if I can give myself credit for it being a logical question, since I seemingly have no other choice than to walk forwards. So I quickly stretch, put my hair back where it should be and remove the absolutely gross drool from my cheek, and I start walking.
And I continue walking.
I… don’t even know if I’m more scared or bored, by this point. I certainly feel lost – I have no idea how I got here and I don’t even remember what I was doing before I fell asleep. And now I’m just walking towards I don’t even know where through the longest corridor I have ever seen! This is the most bizarre situation I have ever been in and the worst thing about it is that it does not even feel like a dream. I know it is real life. I just can’t believe it.
Will you believe me though, when I tell you I have been walking for so long I need to take a break right now?
I just stop walking and sit on the floor, because of course there is nothing else to sit on. There is just that long white empty corridor, and me. “Am I really inside a building?” I wonder, but there is no use asking questions right now, is there? Nothing can possibly be answered. I am all alone. There is not even an insect or a creepy painting to reassure me.
I almost feel like I should give up… I just… I don’t even understand what I’m doing, I don’t know where I am going! Should I be walking? Is there an exit? Should I not just wait here until someone picks me up?
But who would pick me up..? Does anyone know where I am? I sure don’t!

I am not going to die here. I can complain as much as I want, I can’t just stay here doing nothing.
I get up and start walking right away because I don’t see what else could happen – but that is when I realize I have not even tried to call for help. I mean, it had not even crossed my mind, since I’m in a corridor of all places, but who knows? I start yelling.
“Is someone here?”
Of course, no one answers.
Because of course if I say “please” the person who had been ignoring my calls is going to run to my help.
Hmpf indeed. I’m not even surprised or disappointed. I’m so surrounded by nothingness I feel like it is starting to enter me, and soon I will feel and be nothing too.
And I walk, and I walk, and I walk. And my feet start to hurt. But I still walk, because I really want to get out of this stupid empty corridor, and I don’t know what else I could do.
And I walk, and I walk, and I walk.
And suddenly I see… a door!
“Oh thank god!” I think, as I start running towards it, you know, just in case it decides to disappear on me. It’s a pitch black door in the whitest of corridors, and that cannot have been made on accident, but I do not really care. When I’m finally in front of it, I immediately try to open it and frankly… I’m surprised it does.
Reassured for no real reason given I still don’t know where the hell I am, I smile like an idiot as I push it and step outside.
