Across the court yard I dashed, evading my persuaders by jumping into a sewer gate, they dared not to chase after me, as they knew that the creature lived in the sewer, they were afraid but I was not! I dared tread where they didn't, I calmed my sprint to a gentle jog. I found an old head lamp from the resurrection era, I placed it on, it seemed almost more unnerving now then it had before, as if all my existence depended on my light, I didn't like it.
I gripped the package tightly, holding on to it, it would change everything, and I couldn't wait to release it to the public. But a new feeling gripped me, fear. I felt small in this claustrophobic sewer, whos water had dried, only housing the creature, I was sure that the creature knew I was in its domain, but it did not know where. I felt as if I should have been sprinting, but I kept my pace low, if I did meet the creature I may have been able to out run it, for a while.
There were no more exits, I had come around to the place where I had picked up the helmet, there was no manhole above, no ladder, no escape. I grew paranoid, "Does it know I am here? Is it playing with me?". Questions such as these were trivial I still had the package, I still had a purpose.
I had been in the sewers for about twelve hours, I knew I needed to sleep, I found a small alcove, I huddled, if I was still alive in the morning, I might be able to escape, if I died during the night, it would be quick. I bit the tip of my thumb, a small wound appeared, on the wall I scrawled "To whoever finds this package, know that it contains the secret, it is vital that it is released to the public." I fell asleep.
The next morning, I noticed a rip in the package, I tore it open. Sand. Only sand, the creature had been here, I now knew my fate, it was just a matter of time. I turned the corner, a room full of electric steam, eroding the essence of my soul. But I had found something people had only dreamed of discovering, the control room. I pulled the single lever, the water began to flow again, but I was still trapped. With this video camera, I tell you, discoverer, my story, that clanking you hear is the creature, my fate is sealed, and so is yours, the creature cannot be stopped by a single human, but the water flows, we have won.
