An Eventful Day - Part 2: No Way Out

After dinner Cat was going to meet her friend Diane, who'd just been to see Internal and needed a drink.
Only she couldn't get out of the front door. She came to ask me how to open the door, and I thought she was being a complete idiot not being able to open the door. Sasha came with me and explained to me how to do it, but I couldn't get it open.

We asked Kjell if we needed a key to open the door, and he in turn gave us both the idiot look. He didn't manage to open it either.

Then David tried. No luck.

The Alex and Kjell tried together. No luck.

After about 15 minutes of trying to open the door, we started to discuss how long we'd last without going insane - all of NIE in a three bedroom flat. There were 15 of us in there.

Cat phoned Diane asking her to come to the flat so we could throw her the key in the hope that the door could be opened from the outside. In the middle of the conversation Diane's phone ran out of battery.

Everyone started to sing 'We're all going to die'. Even the kids joined in.
Slowly some people started to get slightly nervous.

But then Cat's phone rang. Diane had found a phone box and miraculously knew Cat's phone number. So Cat gave her directions.

As we saw her coming down the road, some of us lent out the window to make it clear where we were.

Just to make things clear: we were on the second floor with no fire escapes.

And then Diane opened the front door. We made sure we didn't accidentally close it behind her, as then we would have been 16 locked inside a flat.

We've always like Diane, but now she is our hero.
