“What’s that you’ve got there, then?”

“Go away, it’s mine.”

“Alright! I just wondered what it was. And why you keep on staring at it.”

“Its what they call a mirror.”

“Never heard of such a thing. What does it do?”

“It doesn’t do anything –“

“Oh, yawn, yawn! So dull –“

“If you’ll just listen! Ladies have them, to make themselves beautiful.”

“Oh, well, that’s different then! Give it to me! Perseus will just die if I’m even more pretty!”

No, no, don’t look at your reflection! What about -?!”

Damn. Silly Medusa. Vanity had the last laugh there then. Or rather…

– Blowout –

You’ll damage your eyesight, watching TV in the dark.

That’s what Mum used to say. She would turn the living room light on and destroy my fantasy hideaway.

Mum’s gone now, they all are. I am forced to make a choice. Should I use what little power I have managed to conserve on light, or on connecting with the outside world?

Candles it is.

I shiver, pulling my blanket close, cold fingers rasping against the harsh fibres. The gales are nearing hurricane force again tonight, the wind turbines have been shut down for weeks.

So much for a cozy hideaway.

“Does that look alright? Is it realistic?”

I stare at Alex, astonished at his artwork. “Ermm, yes, I guess so.”

“Yes, but I don’t know if the mist looks OK, or not. Would it really roll in like that, up top? We’re nowhere near a river, or a valley, or…”

“Alex, mate! The important thing is that we have a view, something natural to stick on the walls – something instead of, well, metal.”

We both turn to look at the metal walls, behind which lie tons of rocks and earth hemming us in on all sides. Above ground, the air is poison. We’ll be OK down here – unless we go insane first.
