Bezel: "Oh."


She sits down on the bed beside you, thinking.

Her expression changes, from concentration to worry.


Bezel: "Is there any way I can help?"

"Probably.
Not with the team. They're right, we shouldn't look for them ourselves. I'll move in remotely once I actually find them and we can do a hot extraction. But that's later.

The other thing... Well. Honestly I have no damn idea how to get into the pillar. That's my biggest problem. I can, well... hopefully wing it, once I get in. But step one is getting there. I'm gonna scout more. Maybe I missed something. Maybe I have to climb through a sewer pipe.
One thought, I'm assuming my goal is in the Second's fortress-monastery. I'd feel real damn stupid if it was in some dingy warehouse on the edge of town. Would be a lot easier for us though. If you can identify any soft targets to check like those, that'd be both helpful and safe."

You pull her in close, the smell of homecooking still lightly clinging to her clothes.

Hopefully I'm not too suspicious walking around..."

"Hey, Ingret counts.

I'd say take Aphelia on jaunts, but I don't think you can actually contact me through her egg or use it at all, so that doesn't help much.
And, please don't end up on the lamb too."

After washing up, you lie in bed and concentrate.

Bringing out Observer, you begin scouring the docks for any other signs of the expedition team, building-by-building.

~

A couple hours pass, and you've just about searched every building along the dock without finding anyone from the expedition team. You're starting to feel sleepy at this point, might have to call it a night...

We'll keep searching tomorrow. We have to.
For now, sleep.

You open your eyes to Friday morning.

Ellen said she wasn't cooking breakfast this morning, since there's plenty of food leftover from yesterday.

Just you and Bezel in the condo, you think.
