Fuse begins to search for the security office. It takes him a little while to find it, at which point he discovers there's no one there. He calls Michelle again.

"So, uh... security office. First floor. It's empty. Guard's gone."

"Not too crazy," Michelle says. "Small hospital, this late at night... prob'ly only got one guard makin' the rounds."

The door is locked, but that doesn't stop Fuse. After picking the lock, he checks the guard office's computer, which is wired into the other cameras in the hospital. Fuse starts checking the other floors, just to make sure nothing abnormal is happening. Nothing of note is happening on most floors... except the second floor, where three nurses are all collected around the nurse station. One is a male nurse, one is a short pink-haired nurse, and the third is the dark-haired nurse that was running the front desk earlier.

It's at this point that Fuse discovers the cameras have audio.

"I'm just saying," says the dark haired nurse, "if we're gonna start getting mosquitos like that on the reg, I'm transferring out. I'm not playing that game."

"I don't think it was a mosquito," says the male nurse. "That thing was huge, and... had skin."

"I agree," says the pink haired nurse. "It was like, some kind of government project. Trying to give us like... a disease."

The dark haired nurse rolls her eyes. "Giiirl, you need to stop listening to those podcasts. I'll bet it was just something from the looow low tiers... you ever see those pictures of the rats? They're bigger than people."

"Those pictures aren't real," replies the male nurse. "Right? They had to be digitally edited, or something. I'm sure the rats are big, but not... not that big."

"Whatever," says the dark haired nurse with a shrug. "If another one shows up, I'm outie. I need to get back to the front desk anyway, I've already been written up once this week for fraternizing."

"That's so dumb," says the pink haired nurse.

The dark haired nurse heads back to the elevator.

So yup, bioprinter shenanigans again it seems. Either look for the floor the bioprinter is on or see if Fuse can intercept that nurse and ask her.

Call Michelle, warn her of "huge, fleshy mosquitos," and ask what to look out for from her experience with this situation (Since Fuse didn't experience the first time this happened).

EDIT: Also see if Fuse can disable the security cameras. Not just at the security office, see if the cameras themself can be turned off. Last thing we need is coordinated bio-monster attacks.

High time to check for the bioprinter, yep. I'm worried about the possibility that Fuse may be up against a whole team of hackers now. Ugh.

Also the dialogue on this page is ace XD <3

2 bucks says that the "mosquito" is there to infect people with save the queen, or something similar (technically, all they need to inject is the fake blood, not necessarily a drug, after all). It might not be nice, but perhaps the staff currently in the hospital needs to be... inoculated. Quickly. Quietly.

I agree, entirely. Fuse has a tranquilizer gun, he should use it to his advantage.

As a side-note, just on behalf of MM for people who don't frequent the Discord (please do come hang out if you haven't already, btw :3):

We need something to use as a bug swatter. That bug Is probably dangerous and guns don't work incredibly well. Of course for Fuse he can just light it on fire.

stay aware of your surroundings, fuse. the last time we were sitting at a desk in a hospital we got ambushed by a spider with a human head.

And Fuse doesn't have the comfort or security of a cat magazine at his disposal. D:

Well then, he should probably check under the desk.

Security watch is hard work. I bet there's a cat magazine or two there.

Have Fuse backdoor the system to his phone, and shut off the bioprinters we don't need.
Madd 18th Dec 2017, 11:15 AM edit delete reply
Actually shut down all bio-printers pronto. Seal the hospital and keep new fucking "mosquitoes" out, just in case the bio-printers here aren't making them.

Fuse, smoke some level. You may need to use your firepower soon. Get some of Blondie's blood, and head over to the second floor to see the three nurses. Give them a brief explanation of what's happening, and whenever you can, blood them. Don't care about what they have to say on the matter, it's better they're on our side than Thale's, especially with us in such a vulnerable position.

When that's all said and done, Fuse, switch positions with Michelle. Michelle should go destroy the Bioprinter the moment Fuse gets there to cover her station.
