move in the direction of the sound while crying, knowing that the water will hide your tears.

Use the splinters like kunai from Naruto in the direction of any potential attacker

>You begin pathetically crawling on the ground, sobbing audibly.
>You hear someone speak from the direction of the door.
>"Oh fuck."
>Aha, the voice sounds somewhat sympathetic.
>Your totally fake and completely not real crying has caused them to let their guard down.
>You begin running towards them while wildly flailing your arms in the hopes that the splinters sticking out of them might slice them.
>"What the hell's your problem, you freakin' psycho!?"
>The voice sounds masculine, but not that masculine.
>There's a hint of a Brooklyn accent, too.
>You hear the person retreating back through the door.
>Success, you guess.
>If you can call a stubbed toe, drenched clothing, and arms full of splinters a success.
>You did ward off a potential attacker though, so that's cool.

Run to the door and pound on it demanding to be let either out or in, whichever it is.

>You quickly run in the direction of the door.
>Before you even get close, you trip because your toe hurts so much.
>You tumble into the door, knocking it open.
>Or... Was it even fully closed in the first place?
>You aren't sure.
>The new room you're in is also incredibly dark.
>The power in this entire building must be out, you think.
>You think you're in a hallway of sorts.
>To your left you can hear what sounds like a microwave.
>To your right you smell a foul stench.
>Directly behind you is the room you just came from.

>Of course, how could you have been so stupid?
>You reach up and take off your blindfold.
>However, this does not help you since the building around you is still completely dark.
>Whatever.
>You tie the blindfold around your forehead.
>You probably look like a cool ninja right now or something.
>The blindfold is most likely just all lopsided and messing up your hair, though.

Fuck it this darkness is inescapable. Accept your fate and start wandering towards the microwave sound.
