H-h-h-help!  *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE* H-h-h-elp m-me!  *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*  I j-j-j-j-egh.  I just c-c-can’t t-take it.  *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*  I just can’t take it.  I can’t take it.  Anymore.  Not anymore.  *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*  They’re at the door.  They’ve been at it for hours.  I thought they would have given up by now.  *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*  The bulkhead’s held up so far but *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE* several more hours of this, and even I have my doubts.  I-I-I’ve still got my pistol.  I somehow doubt I’m going to stop whatever’s on the other side with this, hurling itself at the bulkhead door with the force of a battering ram *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*.
post-it_10 no ideaThe lights have been flickering in and out.  I don’t need to tell you I’m scared shitless *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*.  I’m just at my wit’s end.  I p-p-probably shouldn’t tell you this, or I probably should have mentioned at the beginning, but a few years ago I was diagnosed with *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*.  Took *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*, but when this position opened up, I couldn’t say no, but they wouldn’t have taken me either.  Dropped the *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*, pretended I’d never heard of a ph-ph-ph-*INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*, and I had my medical data falsified.  But I never had hallucinations before *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE*.  Do you hear that?  I can see it.

*INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE* OH GOD!  The lights went out.  Oh god oh god oh god.  They’re not coming on.  Hmm… please.  Just turn back on.  Please *INDETERMINATE LOUD NOISE* at least for me.

[Intervention of several minutes intermittent with continued loud noise of indeterminate source.]
