Author’s Note: It was quite short
Chapter 5 – Along the Way to ××
Presently, I have slipped down the stairs, fallen into a pitch black hole-like something, and dropped straight down that pitch black hole-like something.
I feel like I’ve been falling for quite a long time.
It feels like I’ve been falling for a few minutes now, but was it actually only a few seconds? Dozens of seconds? I am not very sure.
I can see something like a light where I’m falling towards.
That light-like something is steadily getting close and closer.
…No, I suppose it’s me that’s getting closer.
I get the feeling that it is something like an exit.
I feel that at this rate, I will fall head first. It’s dangerous. My sensors are ringing with alarm bells.
I don’t know how strong the impact will be, but at present I’m falling at quite a considerable speed.
If that’s an exit, then I feel that falling headfirst will be dangerous.
So I somehow manage a spin, and bring my head up.
This is not the time to be shrieking. I’m in a pinch.
However, I continue to shriek. It is not something you can stop just because you think that you should.
Just before my body was enveloped by that thing that seems like a light, somehow or other I managed to get upright. However, I couldn’t get as far as fixing my posture, and just fell into the light like that, buttocks first.
