I had no idea why they put the chain where it was. Obviously it was anchored too far away to keep the door from opening. It’s only purpose appeared to be piquing my curiosity.
I climbed over the chain and paused in front of the door. When I touched it, the door moved. It wasn’t locked!
I held my breath as I cautiously opened one side of the door. Something moved. Too late, I realized the chain wasn’t there to hold anything inside. It was there to keep me out of the room – for my safety.
