You turn to Eric. "We should find the stairs."

Maribel wipes her mouth and gets shakily to her feet. "Tony's right."

Eric nods. "Yeah, I don't want to walk past any more of those windows."

The three of you look around, searching for any sign of a stairwell. Maribel points at the ceiling on the opposite side of the expansive space, in the far corner where a green "Exit" sign glows.

"Okay," you say. "Let's do it."

You lead the way. The other two keep their distance. They're letting you go first in case there's another bomb.

You're the canary, going into the gold mine.
