The Holder of Trust

In any city, in any country, go to any mental institution or halfway house you can get yourself to. When you reach the front desk, ask to visit someone who calls himself "The Holder of Trust". A wave of terror should flow over the worker's face. They will stand and open a steel panel at the end of a hallway. Go down the ladder slowly. You will begin to hear two children laughing. If the girl stops, get back to the top of the ladder as fast as you can, lest you find what has been waiting for you. If the boy stops, continue down. Should you reach the bottom, there will be a door. Open it slowly and close it behind you.

A man will stand before you with no face and in all white clothing. You will notice a necklace that seems to be broken in half. It is made of bone, and will draw you toward it. Be resilient and hold your place. If you get too close, he will break every bone in your body before he will kill you. Ask him this question, "Who will help me find them?" His "face" will not move, but in the most horrific voice that will ever befall your ears, he will tell you your answer. He will walk behind you. Open your arms in a "T" shape. He will say, "Am I the one you shall trust?" Do not fall into his arms, lest you be thrown into a fate worse than death. Close your eyes, quickly turn around, and fall. You will feel wind passing your head as you fall for what seems like forever. Do not open your eyes, or there may be a bottom of this fall.

If you keep your eyes closed and your arms spread, you will stop. Open your eyes and you will be back in the institution entrance. Reach into your pocket and you will reveal the other half of the man's necklace.

This necklace is Object 236 of 2538. Is there no one that I can trust?
