The reply on the radio came back to Vella.
"Yeah. We're alive. We got turned around and ended up in the bar. We're hiding here with another survivor until we're sure we aren't being chased anymore. What about you guys? Meet your friends in Athletics yet?"

They could hear Alyx move about on the other end.

"We might be trying to head back out soon. After we're done talking. I don't want to draw anything's attention by chatting out in the open"

Experience, huh? Oz's face scrunched up at the thought of experience. Frankly he took no pride in what he did. It was simply a necessity. Where Anduruna failed him and others, he picked up the pieces. Nothing more.

All the same, it wasn't time to dwell on the past. Much as he hated it Leon was right, his "abilities" were going to come in handy here soon. He certainly didn't trust this woman or Leon near as far as he could throw either of them, but he figured if he could gain THEIR trust, make them think he's on THEIR side, he might have a better shot at figuring what in the world is going on. And, more importantly, what it will take to end it all.

"So..." Oz started, quickly clearing his throat. "Can we at least get a name, Miss...?"

A positive response, that was a good thing, right? "We found another survivor too, but haven't made it to athletics. Some are going to the bridge. Good to know you're alright, we'll keep contact." Vella hopped off the bed and walked out of the infirmary, frowning as she looked out the window.

"Alyx and Habato found another survivor and they're hiding out at the bar for now until they feel like they can make it out." She turned her attention to Escal, noting the gauze on his wrist. "You want to follow them to the bridge or hope we run into those other three at athletics?"

A raised eyebrow was all that Soren could be bothered to muster as the newcomer walked out of the infirmary. This was partly because he looked pretty normal - albeit with a hangover - and also because his mind was too full of questions to give a physical response. How had he survived when those others, well...hadn't? How did he not get woken up by the racket of people dying a presumably horrible, drawn-out death? 

What had he been drinking? That was, really, the question that outweighed all other questions. If he got out of this alive, he'd be ordering that mystery drink straight away! No holds barred. Hell, he'd buy everyone else a drink if they all got out alive! Getting to the bridge was a good start, and he overheard Cyprus taking with the guy about that very thing. It had all turned immensely quiet and every sound in the hallway was amplified hugely.

"Yeah, Cyprus here's right." Soren put his free hand into one of his trouser pockets and simply let the arm with the knife hang loosely by his side. He proceeded to make his way over to the stranger. "And hey, if we can get a message out then at least they know what happened if we do all die." Soren shrugged, not making too much fuss about that proposition. 

"I didn't quite catch your name before..." The Geologist trailed off and, after staring down into the inky darkness outside the window for a few seconds, turned his attention back to the 'Keeper now sporting a nice energy drink. "...And where are you all getting these drinks from?" Soren muttered under his breath, not specifically aiming it at anyone. He glanced over his shoulder and noticed Escal with one, too. He guessed Vella had nabbed one as well. He could definitely do with something to quench his thirst and an energy drink was just the ticket. "Escal! Can you throw me one of those drinks?"

He took a deep breath, turning to the new guy. "Name's Soren, by the way. Hope you're here to stay."

Escal was still fidgeting with the data terminals as Soren talked with the newcomer, who walked back into the infirmary and tossed him a bottle of fruit flavored sports drink, “Name's Rick. I'll likely forget everyone's name in three minutes or so. So don't worry about it, I'll catch on sooner or later.”

Escal's hunt for clues around the computer terminal came up empty as he searched for a password. He huffed and tapped the screen again, the blinking cursor taunting him, but showing that the password was six characters long.

For the time being, the observation deck was a little area of calm.

"Sure thing." Escal threw Soren the bottle he had in his hand. Turning his attention to the terminal, the screen now showed he needed to enter 6 characters. He looked at the card he picked up earlier. It seemed to be a kind of keycard, but there wasn't anything on it that might be the password. Perhaps 'Queen'? No. That was only 5 characters. 'Queens'? It was a long shot and he needed to keep this fairly simple. His best bet was that keepers wanted things they could easily remember and she hadn't written anything down. Two attemps left... Looking through the notes, he checked for a name that had 6 characters. In case he wanted to try combinations later, he also took a pencil and notepad.

Not seeing a name there, he looked around. The 'Queen of the Sapphire Waters'. 5, 8 and 6 long. Waters? Maybe. Continuing to look around there wasn't anything that stood out with 6 characters. Clock, 5. Scroll, 6? Desk, 4. Lamp, 4. Password, 8. There wasn't anything conclusive.

"Here goes nothing." He typed in 'Queens' and pressed Enter. Hopefully this would work.

”So..." Oz started, quickly clearing his throat. "Can we at least get a name, Miss...?"

“Terri. Now...” she sighed and looked over her shoulder as she jogged down towards the passenger deck, peeking out into the long hallway. The lights were starting to flicker a little. And she adjusted the duffel on her shoulder, “...how did you guys get over here? Were you down? Up? What was your approach. I haven't been down here yet and I don't know if anything weird is on the radar.”

The lights buzzed for a moment like they were about to shut off, then snapped back to normal.

"We ah..." Oz paused a moment, waiting for the lights to finish interrupting them. "We came from the Town. There were some... black gargoyle things? That attacked us about midway through. Took off with our third."

He intentionally didn't mention the sacrifice or ramshackle living quarters they stumbled upon during their stroll, curious to see if Leon would bring it up. Oz was absolutely certain that this woman had been the one living in the hut, and if she and Leon were really working together, there obviously wouldn't be much point in telling her about it, cause she would have already known what Leon had done.

It makes total sense Oz mused to himself.

"We came from the Town. There were some... black gargoyle things? That attacked us about midway through. Took off with our third." Oz said.

"Parallax. Those things took away a keeper named Parallax that was with us. Had the other saber too." He mentioned, eying the one Oz had taken from him.

"I came from two deck below the main. The halls are totally empty down there. Or at least, they were when I wandered through them briefly. Other than that, the gargoyles...those are the only things we've run into so far." He thought for a moment.

"We also came across a shop in the town...it had been turned into some kind of sacrificial chamber...dead body mutilated on a table, blood strew about in intricate patterns...and the place was obviously set up to accommodate someone. There was a makeshift bed, clothes, food...a booby trap system to alert whoever was there about us opening the door to the place.

"That...wasn't you...was it?" Leon carefully asked Terri.

Escal punched in, -QUEENS-, and hesitantly punched the enter key.

He was rather instantly greeted with, “Invalid Password.” Which blinked a few times before reverting back to the password screen yet again.
