And to do it we’d need some equipment, otherwise sooner or later we’d all take a fall, plummet

Whatever the light was, it didn’t look strong enough to be coming from any of the rooms in Furnace, and even as I watched, it seemed to flicker like a cinema projector. “Let’s take it slow,” I said. “And keep it quiet.” We did, easing up the wall together, too nervous of drawing attention to ourselves by hammering in the pins.
