Morgenstern
You and Fuse pull the bed back from the wall. He uses his toolbox to undo the vent cover, and you both head down the ventilation shaft.

You find yourself in a short hallway. There's a door at the end... a big, metal door, with some kind of device next to it. Fuse stares at it for what feels like an eternity before running a hand through his hair.

"This... this is some serious shit, Blondie."

You realize that you never introduced yourself properly. The only name he's heard is the one Michelle calls you. He breathes out, slowly, then continues.

"Okay, this is like... this is cop tech. Like, this is the kind of lock police have on their armories. This is the kind of lock you see in prisons. I'm shooting from the hip here, but I'll bet your dad WASN'T a prison warden."

You confirm. Your dad mostly made his money trading stocks. He had nothing to do with police work.

"Cool. Great. This is... this isn't even cheap cop, this is military grade. There's usually automated turrets or, or laser beams attached to something like this. I could get a decrypter key for it, but I'd have to talk to some ugly people to do it.

Even with that trick you did at Howler's place... I know computers, and this is a computer I guess, but a max security lock is new ground for me. I don't know enough about police technology for a mind sync to get you anywhere."

He grits his teeth.

"Even if we could get it open... dude, I don't know what's behind this. I don't have the slightest clue. Your dad could be keeping a tank back there. You dad could have somebody locked up back there. The ACTUAL DEVIL might be behind this door for all we know."

Police technology, he says? Well, it might be high time you gave Michelle some of your own blood. But hand her the syringe. Have it be her choice.

Dad, or Mom, were into some deep stuff. Hopefully, you can find a clue as to what is up with your blood.

WELL. Holy smokes.

1) I guess we can tell Fuse our real name? He can keep calling us Blondie, or Jane though, if he wants. If it's safer that way.
2) Would Michelle know anything about military grade tech?
3) Is there anything else in this hallway?
4) When we listen at the door do we hear or detect anything?
5) What is the stuff on the door? Seeing some kind of pattern there. Does it say something?
