It's a painting, nicely preserved by a dusty but otherwise unmarred clear cover, of a guy in 22nd century British fatigues. He's shooting a huge gun at a red dragon, and the dragon is like "ahhhh you shot me with a huge gun." Or so you extrapolate from its expression.\n\nA plaque prominently displays the title of the painting: "Sir Church Slays the Great Wyrm Khazyll."\n\nMight be worth something if you make it out of here alive, but you should probably [[get back to surviving.|little nook]]\n\nOr ... hey, are there [[hinges]] on the edge of the painting?\n\n
"What, afraid of some Pre-Snowfall junk?" Moosk sneers.\n\n"No, it's just," Amara stammers. "They say a grue got in after the store closed."\n\n"That's just to scare babies. Grues don't come up to the surface. Go in. And no taking your handshell for light, I'll hold it."\n\n"Why are you asking me?" Amara backs away from the door. "You got me in trouble //last// time.

With a tremendous clang, the industrial plastic door tears free of its hinges and slams to the floor.\n\nYour heart lifts in relief as daylight spills into the shop, and you squint against the sudden brightness. You hear a hiss from somewhere behind you, and the clicking steps fade away into some forgotten tunnel from the shop.\n\nYou blink and your vision clears. Moosk's mother fills the doorframe, clutching her flat-headed maul in both hands.\n\n"Zee?" She squints, looking right at you but not seeing you. She raises one muscular arm to shield her eyes from the sun.\n\n"I'm here, Mrs. Urza!" I shout. "I'm ok! You saved me from the grue!"\n\n"Oh thank the heavens," she says with a sigh of relief. "Get over here."\n\n[[You comply.|The End]]
Amara squints and stops walking. "Hey, it's not closed."\n\nShe goes up to the decrepit door, a heavy slab of weathered industrial plastic. It's that kind that they stopped making twenty years ago, scuff marks and graffiti all over the front.\n\nAnd Amara's right. The door to the abandoned storefront isn't closed like usual. Amara pushes on it and it moves a little with a loud groan. She jumps back.\n\nMoosk gets that grin that he does when he's got a bad idea. "Somebody should go in."\n\n"I dunno," says Amara.

Now completely blind, you spin toward the entrance and throw yourself against it. You can hear Moosk and Amara laughing on the other side.\n\n"Let me out!" You scream, struggling with the door handle. "You didn't say you'd shut the door! You let me out or I'm telling!"\n\n"Calm down, ya baby," Moosk says. "I just wanted to scare you. But fine, I'll let you out if you stop crying."\n\nThere's a rattling sound.\n\n"Uh-oh," Moosk says.\n\nYour throat suddenly seems very dry. "Whaddya mean, [[uh-oh]]?"
The plastic bag holding the box crinkles loudly as you fumble it open, and you can hear the grue's breathing and clicking claws speed up.\n\nYour hands shake as you pull open the fiber box and fumble out a thick, sturdy stick. Squeezing your eyes shut, you [[strike the match]] against the side of the box --
You walk up to the door and push it again. It lets out a loud groan as it swings open, the light from the street forming a widening band that stretches into the store.\n\nWhat little you can see is a dusty, cobwebbed museum of worthless antiques scattered carelessly over low shelves and tables. Your street urchin instincts kick in as you scan the area for anything useful. A clear plastic baggie with a small box catches your eye on a nearby shelf.\n\nMoosk shoves you. "C'mon, get in there. And don't take no little steps. Regular size."\n\nYou take a deep breath and let it out. You get your toes as close to the edge of the door as you can\n\n<<timedinsert 2s>>and take [[five measured steps|Counting]].<<endtimedinsert>>

"You baby."\n\nMoosk grabs you in a bear hug and you wrestle him for a moment, but he's the oldest and strongest of the neighborhood kids. When he pushes you toward the door, he's dangling your handshell in front of his face.\n\n"You can have this back once you've gone in there. You gotta stay there for, um ... fifteen seconds. You don't know no light spells, do you?"\n\nYou shake your head 'no'. Kids aren't supposed to learn real magic until Secondary.\n\n"Good." Moosk makes a turn-around gesture with his finger. "Five steps in, fifteen seconds. Do it and I'll buy you ice cream."\n\n[[You turn around.|The Walk]]
This little blister pack contains four little cylindrical batteries. They've got some stuff caked on them, but it's possible that they've still got a bit of charge.\n\nYou pocket the batteries and return your attention to [[the store|Electronics Graveyard]].
"Um, nothin', it's just ... stuck." Moosk's trademark confidence wavers in his voice.\n\n"It's locked, dummy," Amara says. "You forgot to check it an' now Zee's locked in."\n\nYou hear a noise from somewhere behind you, a kind of whistling hiss like the air being let out of a punctured bicycle tire. Something taps against the floor of the store.\n\n"Guys I hear somethin'," you say, panic rising in your voice. "Open the door, will ya?"\n\n"Um," Moosk mutters. The doorknob rattles again, but the door doesn't budge.\n\n[[The noise gets closer.|Panic]]
