You tell Michelle about the door downstairs, and why you need her help.

"Will that work? Like... can you sync with me up here while you're down there?"

You nod. You're... pretty sure you can.

You roll your neck a little more, trying to get everything straightened back out. You tend to the gunshot wound on Michelle's arm. It's bleeding, but it's not as bad as it could have been. You take the syringe that you used to stick Michelle and refill it with your blood, giving it to Fuse. Just in case.

On a whim, you try to pull the blood out of the sheet. You can move the sheet, but not remove the blood from it. It seems like the blood requires a container, or vessel, of some sort to be manipulated.

Fuse looks at you, then to Michelle. "What are the odds more cops are coming?"

Michelle shakes her head a little. "He-- or... she, or whoever... they were playin' that last cop too close to their chest. They shouldn't have had a problem losin' that standoff if they thought they could get more guys out here. Hell, they shoulda sent more than two... but they tryin' to be tactical, not tryin' to strongarm us. I wouldn't bet money on it, but I'm hopin' we got some time."

The three of you look at each other. Everyone breathes... very deeply.

"If we don't do this now, we might not get to," says Michelle. "No tellin' what we might come back to if we leave. That, and Fuse is about to take the truck, so..."

Fuse nods. "Yeah. Sync, and bypass the lock, then?"

Whew. Nice, deep breaths. Yeah, I vote for do it now. Real sharp and quick, mind, but yeah - if there's anything behind that locked door we can actually take back with us, then I think we should probably try it now.

That's what they want you to think, Michelle. Excellent deduction, but not enough paranoia.
... Oh well. Back down the vent and sync up.
Let's see if bloody sesame opens that thing.

... In the realm of crazy ideas, there's a bioprinter in there. One that works off Jane's blood and builds valiant, cute little minions. That would help so damn much.
Fingers crossed !
