The Brick Room

This is a room in the Mansion.  The entrance to this room is in the sub-basement.

This is a small room.  Its ceiling is low and easily reached without extending your arm overmuch.  The walls, floor, and ceiling of this room are concrete except for the wall to the left as you pass the entrance.  That wall is made of brick.

The mortar between the bricks is a stiff putty, moist and throbbing.  The bricks twitch and fidget in their nooks.  Removing a brick leaves a hole in the putty which will grow a new brick within a day.  The orphaned bricks are attentive, apt to receive instruction on how to gird and form each room of this mansion.
