> Reassure Norton that you've been on hundreds of trips like these and you won't let anything hurt him.
You turn back toward Norton. He's looking right at you, and you can tell by the way he has his jaw set that he knows exactly what conclusion you've arrived at. He shakes his head slightly, his lengthy brown hair bouncing with the motion.
"No," he says, "absolutely no bloody way
You meet his hazel eyes, feeling every bit as determined as he seems to be. "Norton," you say, "you know me. I've been on hundreds of trips like this - sometimes you've been with me and you've seen it. Chances are pretty good that this whole 'Frozen Triangle' mess is just a bunch of posh. It's a creepy place, sure, but nothing is going to hurt you. I swear."
> Check the stairs for traps.
"Why don't I," you add, "check the stairs? If they're safe we can go down into this together. We'll be fine
Norton draws in a deep breath and lets it out. "All right, Hans. Fine." He turns back and locks gazes fearfully with the head.
You, meanwhile, walk toward the stairs. You've disarmed so many traps that checking for them is nearly effortless, and you can allow your mind to wander.
My gosh, Norton's a coward,
you wince at the thought as soon as it hits. You know that Norton is just as courageous as the average guy; more so, seeing as how you're not sure how many people would come on such a trip as this. However... you just wish that perhaps he would be a bit more bold
You smile wryly to yourself as you scan the shadows. Not everybody's as brave as Hans, I guess,
You step back. The stairs are trap-free - and if you're not wrong it's time to see the truth of this mystery for yourself.
(Just found out that the 'Twilight Zone' is officially the Frozen Triangle. DX)
