5.2 Captivity is a State of Mind

Man on the Ceiling ~ Christopher Gibbs

Atom operated the door mechanism, it swung open smoothly; No.3 smiled: I told you so. NOM’s 1 & 2 remained on their bench, arguing.
“Who died and made you King of the World”
“Who died and gave you the right to question my authority”
“Authority? Authority? You couldn’t author your way out of this cell – too busy lording it over me.”
“Lording? That’s not even a word Mr Atom-come-lately; I didn’t notice you engineering an escape plan.”
No.3 shrugged and followed Atom down the corridor.
