As I neared the corner, I could see a wooly mammoth of a man crouching on his knees, as if praying to god, behind the box which was emitting all this racket. In front of his face on the floor was a small square mirror. He seemed to be spying on what the actual cause of all this noise was.

His hand slowly, carefully, surrounded this bulbous thing and began to apply pressure equally to all sides. With the swiftness of a viper, he yanked it out and the room that once seemed to be vibrating suddenly came to an immediate halt.
