Storyboard Text

  • When arousing, I got up and proceeded with extreme caution, for the floor although seemingly solid material, was treacherous with slime. I had advanced some ten or twelve places in this manner, when remnant of the torn hem on my pants became entangled between my legs. I stepped on it, and fell violently on my face.
  • in the confusion i laid down attending my fall, I did not immediately apprehend a startling circumstance. My forehead bathed in a clammy vapour, and the peculiar smell of decayed fungus arose to my nostrils. There came a sound resembling the quick opening and as a raping closing of a door overhead, while a faint gleam of light flashed suddenly through the gloom, and as suddenly faded away. I saw clearly the doom which had been prepared for me, and congratulated myself upon the timely accident by which i had escaped. Another step before my fall and the world had seen me no more.
  • Upon arousing, I found my side, as before a loaf and a pitcher of water. A burning thirst consumed me, and I emptied the vessel at a draught. It must have been drugged- for scarely had i drunk before i became irresistebly drousy. A deep sleep fell upon me a sleep like that of death.
