"That was amazing Rosa! Let's go crack open that locked room now."

EVENTS:

After congratulating her pet shark, Eigla leads Rosa to the locked room. The key is rather rusty and fits badly on the lock, but you eventually manage to get it to turn.

Slowly, the two of them walk in. Unlike the rest of the house, this room doesn't seem to have been prepared for the owners' absence, so it stands as a strange, moldy snapshot of long, long ago.

A bed, disheveled and covered with the dust of ages. Floral wallpaper, a few colorful photographs and landscapes, yellowed idol band posters. A broken mirror hanging on a wall, a red, fist-shaped stain dead in its center.

Walking in, they see an open wardrobe, cutesy clothes and school uniforms waiting patiently for their owner to return. A cellphone, its battery puffed up and leaky. Plush toys, a single, long-expired can of foundation. A letter, half-started on a piece of light green paper then angrily scrawled over.

Rosa feels something under her tail, and realises she's stepped on a fallen portrait, face-down onto the carpet.

EVENTS:

Eigla checks the letter. The handwriting starts neat, but quickly devolves into a scrawled mess.



My one and eternal love,

I am so sorr

Wherever you are -
NO NO NO

I wanted to tell you

I don't know why I'm writing this.

It should have been me.


I love you.




Rosa picks up the portrait. It's an old photograph of, Eigla? Seems like her, and- Rosa? She, doesn't remember ever posing for a picture, but she looks very nice in this one. Very uh, bold, too. Hugging Eigla, both of them doing V-signs, looking so... Young, and happy, and alive.

Eigla might want to see this.

EVENTS:

Eigla looks around the room, searching for things of interest. There's teen magazines, old schoolwork, all unknown but vaguely familiar... She turns to check the wardrobe, when suddenly Rosa presents her with a photo.

Oh. It's from, that last K-pop concert you went to. Took a lot of convincing to get you to wear casual clothes instead of your preferred formal school uniform, but you ended up looking nice. It was right after the first act, when you were getting in line to get autographs. You looked so nice. So did-

H-her.

Eigla falls to her knees, eyes losing focus. The world spins around, and goes dark.


FRAGMENT OF MEMORY: Death.

EVENTS:

Rosa looks confusedly at Eigla as the latter begins to cry desperately, bawling her eyes out like there was no tomorrow. A strong smell of ammonia begins to overtake the room, and Eigla falls onto her side, shivering and curling into a ball.

Eigla gains 1 Madness!

"Curie... could this patterned mold ever be supported outside of the body? In a machine, or a cold room with nutrient flow?

If the consciousness is nothing but a pattern, such an interfacer could make for a lovely cloning device. Maybe there is a technical constraint I don't understand."


>Be blissfully aware of the horrible memories and emotional damage coming up several rooms away. Assume they just want some quiet time.
