"What's 'Project Zero?'" Daniel wondered aloud.
"There's only one way to find out," Pammy laughed as she pushed open the doors and walked into the room beyond. Gassan and David followed at her heels. Jake and Dan hesitated for a moment, then went in.
As soon as the five were all in the room, the door slammed shut behind them. It was a small room, featureless except for the vents along the floor, the doors they had come in by, and another door at the room's far end. Pammy immediately walked to the far door.
"It's locked," she grumbled, trying to force the door open.
Jake tried the other door. It didn't move. He tried again, harder, but the door stayed shut. "We're...trapped," he whimpered. There was a metallic click from somewhere within the ventilation system, followed by a low, steady hum. "I can't open this," he screamed, shoving all his weight against the doors.
At that moment, a bluish vapour began pouring out of the vents. It quickly filled the room, enveloping its five unfortunate occupants. Their panic at being locked in a gas-filled room quickly subsided as, one by one, they dropped to the floor, unconscious.
