You Move To The Ventilator

Looking up, it is too far out of reach and you don’t even bother jumping.

Your eyes search the smooth walls for a foothold but find none.

The man’s coughing becomes more strained. You glance back and notice him holding his bloodied stomach.

…decide that you can’t think very well with all the coughing and decide to beat the man’s skull in?
…pull the table across, using it as a step to the duct?
