Stories featuring Zero
My frustration was cut short as siologen turned in silence and began gesturing wildly. Looking over my shoulder I couldn't work out what he was trying to tell me. The giant Australian crept over and whispered in my ear, pointing to the corner behind him where a security guard sat reclined in a chair, fast asleep. We left, quickly.
The fence, the wasteland, and then in front of us the stadium itself. An unconventional triathlon, I agree, but it satisfied our thirst. Quietly we spirited up the stairs and out into the seating area, taking immediately to the steel stairs and walkways that would lead us up above this theatre of achievements.
There was no activity on site, no reason to suspect one should be caught other than that feeling that such a thing shouldn't be possible. I grasped the top of the board and hauled myself over. Two meters away, the reefdog was doing the same. We dropped onto the slippery wall below and edged towards the side of the building.
Loud and fast, always swamped with thousands of people. That's what initial memories of the Tube describe, jam packed into the round-topped cars as they careered through pitch black tunnels beneath the London streets. Faces of all kinds, of all walks, all staring into space, avoiding eye contact, avoiding interaction.
There's not enough room to stand up, so a half walk, half crawl is required, bag dragged along behind. I'm last, the others waiting round the corner. Reaching them comes with the realisation that my spare torch has detached itself from my belt, so back down the tunnel to find it... I've been underground for all of a minute, and I hate it.
