into an intersecting hall.
This hall, too, is empty. The school is a frightening
labyrinth of hallways and corridors and classrooms and so

She moves on.

BUT JUST AS SHE IS ABOUT TO MAKE IMPACT
Her mind goes berserk and she is jerked about
in mid air,

A moment or two, and Laurie struggles her way

down the first hall she sees.
