肩をがっしりと掴まれたまま少しばかり歩かされた。おそらくは戸口までのことだったのだろう。立ち止まると誰かがアクセスコードを口にした。1-2-8 だった。扉が開かれると不穏な気配で出迎えられた。天井から不気味垂れているのは、裸電球だった。

Some time later, I couldn't be sure how long, we finally came to a stop. I had put the flashlight away to keep some element of surprise on whoever had grabbed me, so my eyes were fully primed for the darkness. Which made it quite a shock when the trunk opened in the bright glare of ... Well, I couldn't tell.

The trunk quickly slammed shut again as I heard a voice shouting. "What am I paying you guys for? Why isn't he blindfolded already? FIX IT." I knew what was coming now, but still couldn't put up much of a fight as three men grabbed me immediately on opening the trunk, a bag thrust over my head as my feet hit the pavement. Looks like they might be earning their pay after all.

I was firmly led by the shoulders for some distance, until we presumably reached a door. We stopped there while someone recited off a code to gain access: one-two-eight. The door opened, and an unwelcome chill greeted me from the other side. Hanging from the ceiling ominously was a naked lightbulb.
