    It was a roadway to darkness. I was surrounded by its cold and bleakness. The hallway stopped abruptedly. I put my hand on the doorknob and was shocked by its touch.

    “You have disgraced the arts with your presence! Leave at once!” Said the stage director. “How dare you!” Iyelled in a apalled tone.
