My eyes flickered open to reveal a tiny room, painted white, surrounding me. I examined my unfamiliar environment, wondering how I ended up in this place. I felt a cold, stuff object pressing up against the side my face. Sitting up, I realized that the coldness was a white marble floor. How did I get on the floor in a mysterious room? Gazing across the place, I noticed a door lacking a lock on the far wall. At least I knew I wasn't trapped. Behind me, on the other side of this room, was a white table. I pulled my weak body off of the ground. There appeared to be three objects resting on the table: a book, a pair of binoculars, and a cellular device. Were these items meant for me? Should I just leave and forget all of this nonsense, or study the objects and search for some sort of instruction?
Allowing my curiosity to get the best of me, I chose the second option. The binoculars and cell phone did not interest me much, but the book could reveal some type of guidance. It was rather thick but, holding it in my hands, the book was extremely light. Maybe the pages are just for show?, I wondered. I flipped open the cover, revealing a square cut out in the paper. A key was hidden in the secret compartment, and it appeared to be to a vehicle. Without windows, there was no way of checking outside to see if there was any form of transportation. I could only hope. As I began to place the keys in my jacket pocket, I noticed an attached metal key chain with some sort of message inscribed. It read, "Great job, ma'am, but the adventure has just begun." I sighed.
I picked up the book and binoculars, since I would obviously need them, and headed towards the exit. As I had expected, the door was not locked and allowed for a leisurely exit. Before me was a hallway that was, of course, white. At the end of it was yet another door, which I followed into the unknown outdoors. I saw nothing but foliage, so I used my handy binoculars to explore the landscape. In the distance, atop a small hill surrounded by forest, was a blue Volvo. Walking towards it, I remembered the final object I'd discovered on the table: the cell phone. I scrolled through it as I strode towards my destination. I discovered that there was but one contact in the address book, and it was named Leader. I pressed the Send button and listened to the rapid ringing. I head a click, followed by a man's voice. "Here are your instructions..." he said. I listened intently and prepared myself for the task ahead...
