He woke up in a start, sweat clinging to his body. The mask covering his face afforded him a hazy look into his surroundings. He saw a dark laboratory, disheveled and decrepit with mounds of scrap metal surrounding him. In front of him was a table with a speaker on it. He felt a thin cord around his neck and his chest.  He tried to move his arms and his legs, desperately trying to escape. But he couldn’t move his arms or legs. Nor did he seem to have them anymore. Suddenly, hundreds of glowing eyes flashed around him. They emanated from the pieces of scrap metal he has seen earlier. Then, a single voice spoke from the speaker. “He tried to release you. He tried to release us. But I won’t let him. I will hold you here. I will keep you here. We will burn forevermore here.” At that the pieces of scrap metal caught fire, as if struck by lightning. Simultaneously, they started to move towards him.
