I was starting to sweat now. Like REALLY sweat! Like under arm itching, dripping through one and only Kansas shirt.(Probably wasn't wise to wear one on an expedition)
Five percent battery life left! I had to pick one more song to motivate me to get to the top of the stairs. I knew exactly which one. "Eye of the tiger" by Survivor.
I turned off the flashlight on my phone and trudged up the stairs.
After repeating the song three more times, I finally made it to the top. I lay my back on the metal platform and was about to open the door when it swung open and Reece shined a light in my face.
"Tim, you ok man?" she asked.
"I'm a survivor!" I answered wheezing.
