I run back. For hours and hours. And finally.... hit a dead end.
All this time, I thought I was running toward my friends. But I was lost. I don't know where I am. Or what direction I was going in. I don't know where I took a wrong turn, or how often. I have never felt so alone. I begin sobbing.
After a whole I notice something else. My wind-up light was damaged when I hit the wall. It's growing darker. Should I carefully feel my way along the tunnel wall? But the others could be countless miles way. Should I just run into the darkness and keep running. Anything is better than waiting to die. What else can I do?
