"Higher Standards - 21"
As she moves through the quiet halls of the maze, Ashley looks and listens for any sign of an exit from these hallowed halls. She makes her way through one of the hallways and is surprised by a slight reverberation coming from down the hall. Ashley freezes dead in her tracks, curious, yet fearful of what might have made the noise. She leans against a wall and tries to bring her arm to the corner of the adjacent hallway, but forgets that her arms are tightly secured by the leather restraints of her Siltex suit. Ashley sighs in frustration as she creeps closer to the corner of the hall. She turns around and peeks out to the unexplored hall.
“Hwewwo?” Ashley murmurs from behind the rubber ball in her mouth. Her muffled voice reverberates down the long hallway, but there is no response. Ashley’s wide, doe-like eyes dart back and forth as she tries to find some sort of clue as to where or from what the sound she heard came from.
