Nothing but stairs.
“Hope you like stairs,” said @Jonononathan Riggs
. He was a pretty scrawny kid back at school, but the middle aged millionaire body he was in was in good shape.
So we kept going up. Nobody knew exactly how to get to Mr. Sterne’s office. School lore just always called it “upstairs.” And being stuck in the access shafts between realities, it began to make a certain sense.
“Maybe we could... take a… short break,” said @old noah new samuel
. He was in the oldest body of us all, and the relentless stair climbing was taking its toll. He panted on the landing.
“When we pause on a landing too long,” said @Field Marshal Olivia
, “is when the other paths open up. Like that!”
Now there were two staircases going up, and two going down.
“We’re best off if we can keep a steady pace,” Olivia continued. “But really it’s all about intention.”
“Theese one. Theese is the way to Mr. Sterne,” @Sabrina Duncan
“Okay people — you heard the man” said Olivia. “But that Russian accent is totally fake. How did you even convince anybody back on the front, Sabrina-Alexy?”
