DARLAH 2

Antoine raised his hands to his throat, fumbling to find the fastener on his helmet.

“Let me help you. One second.” Coleman came over to him and helped him undo the fastener. “There.”

Antoine pulled the helmet off and took a breath.

There was something about the air. He noticed it as soon as they emerged from the decompression chamber into the first of the old modules. The air seemed old, stuffy, like it had given up on the thought of anyone ever breathing it. Nothing besides time had been moving around in here. The egg-white walls were covered with equipment and electronics that were clearly from the 1970s. Big LEDs in various colors and patterns blinked as they moved farther in toward module two. Outmoded computers were rattling off numeric codes and strips of information none of them could interpret.

Beyond that, it was disconcertingly quiet; only their footsteps on the steel grating on the floor made booming echoes with every step they took. It made Antoine feel like he was in a church, that he should be respectful and reverent. But then that thought was interrupted by another, darker one that he couldn’t explain.
