She was trying to mumble something but her words were not audible enough. Everyone’s attention turned to Sasha and for the first time, no one was thinking that they may end up dying from suffocation but were rather more interested in learning what was going on with this twenty something lady. She composed herself and then stared across the elevator before coughing to clear her throat. She looked right into Adrienne’s eyes and asked if it is wrong for a human being to want to die. Adrienne was puzzled by this question and confusion was clearly written over her face. She then looked around the room and asked everyone if they were ready to join their maker in the current state they had left their different lives. Everyone was quiet and they were just looking around to see who would actually answer this particular question. Sasha then went into her handbag and pulled out a handkerchief.

Sasha was really getting through to the other people while Lloyd and Gert could be seen trying to fight back tears. The emotional roller coaster that was in the elevator was something that most of the individuals there had not planned on experiencing that night. Everyone was there on a different mission but for some reason they all ended up stuck in the elevator together. Sasha seemed at peace after confessing her troubles and anybody could see that there was a renewed woman in her who was determined to not let the world dull her spark. Her captivating words were definitely not falling on deaf ears because everyone there was lost in deep thought after Sasha went silent.
