2, 4, 6 , 8 beep  – 7, 4, 5, 6 beep – 3, 4, 9, 7 beep. Ella has tried all the possible combinations, how could she forget it? She doesn’t have much time, the walls are closing on her.  5, 6, 7, 8 beep. Her breath is shallow, her strength is fading away. Help me, help me!

Wake up darling, it’s only a nightmare!
