We climb through the narrow passage. The screams of the creature vanish behind us, but I still don't have the heart to turn around or to utter a peep.

In this darkness I cannot make out a single feature of the tunnel and only because of the creaking of its metal plates, I know , that the girl is still in front of me.

I try crawling faster to catch up with the girl. She winces, when I tap her back.
"We have to move faster. The floor is sinking." I whisper, when suddenly something rips through the steel.
Something was trying to break apart the ducts and now after it has heared me, it's putting forth a lot more effort.

As I try to move away, the passage begins to fall apart. I can't keep my balance, when the wall I am leaning against breaks and together we begin a long fall into the darkness.

As I hold the sobbing girl in my arms, I glance around. Nothing appears to have changed since our departure a few hours ago. I think i can see some kind of electrical device in the darkness behind the smashed window. It appears to be broken. Maybe we hit it when we fell down here.
I can't hear our pursuer. Maybe it has lost our tracks or cannot find a way down here.

It only likes to hide in dark places, where no good man can dare to step without fearing for his live.

The rat gone I can finally inspect my bag.

I currently have two keys, both of which don't fit the locker around my neck. I also have a couple of paperclips, a name tag, a big kitchen knife, a needle, a reel of thread, two coins and two packs of liquid foods, one of which has been bitten open and emptied. I can only suspect that this is the start of a war of attrition. The demon, unable to attack us directly, decided to disrupt our supply line.

How is your knitting ability?
Knit her some new clothes.
Also give her food.
She's the strongest of your group members, alas, even stronger than us!
No. 238469 ID: 2ebda1

Be a gentleman and offer her the food pack either way. Dont pick up the knife just yet, we don't want her to turn around and see you about to stab yourself with it. Warn her before you do anything at all with the knife. Maybe you should offer it to her as well? To show you aren't dangerous, and that she has protection? Your manly strength should be enough for you, anyway.

That is a pretty damn good idea. Let's just hope you really aren't full of bugs or snakes or rats or aren't disfigured or something.

Most likely you're an amazingly hansom dog-thing with a fancy mustache, and you and your new girlfriend can run off into the sunset. ;D

I can't cut through all my cloths. I would be naked. But removing the mask would be great. I'll try that.
I offer Isabel the last food pouch. After a moment of consideration she whips it out of my hand and starts gulping it down. I guess she can eat it. The package didn't write anything about dogs.

"Hey, I'll try to get rid of my mask. If it's ok with you I'll try cutting it with my knife. Just don't be scared."

She looks up from her meal and nods. It seems as if she doesn't fear me that much any more.

I stab the mask lightly with the blade but the knife is too stumb to penetrate the fabric around it. I stab harder and acute pain runs through my face. The fabric still isn't damaged. I'm afraid this tool isn't good enough with the mask fitting so tightly.
No. 238491 ID: 40cb26

What about the collar? I bet if you can get that off the rest should get loose enough to free your face. Does that lock hold it closed? You or puppy girl can try to pick it or break it with the knife.
No. 238492 ID: a9bea6

dang, was worth a shot though. hmm, maybe ask her to try paper clip lock picking the lock.
No. 238505 ID: 2ebda1

Pain? What do you mean by that? Do you mean that by stabbing the fabric you felt pain, or that you stabbed so hard it hit your skin? Dont want to hurt yourself.
No. 238508 ID: a594b9

The fabric isn't damaged, but you hurt yourself anyway? Hmm. Strange...

Alright let's not worry about that. Let's just get moving. Up the dumbwaiter again!

I stabbed so hard I hit something beneath the fabric. The material itself doesn't convey any pain.

The collar is made out of metal so i can't cut through it. It is also somehow embedded into the suits fabric.
I try breaking the lock that is holding the collar closed, but the material is to hard and sadly lockpicking isn't one of my many abilities. I ask the girl whether she is able to do it, but she shakes her head.

Looks like I have to find the key if I want to get rid of the mask.

Is that a hole in your hood? Ah well, as the others said. Stop worrying about your mask until it gets to be a real problem. At least we know it can break, thanks to the last guy we wearing one's untimely end (if Im remembering correctly). If Izzy's done with her meal and is feeling ok, I suggest you get moving.

Loud cracking noises can be heared from the door. I don't think it'll hold much longer. We are seperated from the only other exit by a huge gap.

Simple emotions like fear, pain, hunger could be easily generated.

They started to insert organic materials, brain parts from corpses or geneticaly designed neurological parts. They created new live in tubes and found things they never intended to study. I dont know what exactly but it was more profitable than their first project. So in the end they kind of cancelled Alpha. They send down all the useless experiments and creatures they considered death ends. Professor Schwarz used them one last time in his ambition to finish Alpha. The company gave him the trash they didn't need anymore and the personal they thought would be expenable. The things he did where terrible, but we stayed. He said as soon as he'd succeed, we would all be rewarded."

You're right. We can't waste any more time down here. "We should get going as long as there's any chance to find my friend."

I can barely follow the figure with my wounded knee, as we march through the darkness. A winding staircase leads out of the chasm.

"So why did they put me into this suit?" I break the silence.

>"I've no idea. Some of you arrived in those. Maybe your body is an abomination so terrible the scientists didn't want to look at it all the time."

That doesn't sound right. My original theory must be closer to the truth in the end.

"And what do you want me to do?"

>"Oh it's easy. There is an old escape hatch down in the machine areas, but nobody down here has the authorizy level to open it. Nobody but Professor Schwarz. You're small enough to fit through the ventilation shafts, so just climb to the experimantation lab and search his body for the keys. With those we'll also be able to get to the main security room to search for your friend."

You're making me nervous. As I crawl into the tunnel I turn my head, expecting some kind of new monstrosity, but it's just her staring at my back. "Why are you trusting me?" I ask.

> "What could something like you possibly do to make my situation even worse? I couldn't get the key without trusting some stranger anyway. And what could you gain from stabbing my back? The key alone won't do you any good as long as you don't know where the hatch and the main security room are. You'll have to come back."

I guess I have no other choice. I climb through the seemingly endless tunnel. Maybe it's just because my broken leg is making me stop every few steps, but it seems to take forever until I finally reach the second junction. Fearing to drain the batterie of the flashlight I decide to turn it off until I reach my destination. In the darkness I crawl slower, but at least I'll have light when I arrive.

Finally the passage ends, leading into a dark room. Two entrances open to well lit areas, yet this room is absolutely dark. I flip on the flashlight.

I wonder if test 6.35 is you? It sounds like 6.36 created the Monster due to someone doing the... whatever on THEMSELVES. Crazy fucker.

Inspect the trash can then see if you can find out what the lady's doing with those keys.

I can't see exactly what she's doing. It seems as if she's gathering some stuff she's stored back there.

Just in case something strange happens you should have an eye on her.

I examine the trashcan. It's filled with a lot of other documents. All of them have been torn to shreds, but I doubt I would have understood what was written on them anyway.

The old cellotape breaks away from the wall almost instantly as I touch the poster, revealing what's behind it.

Get the knife out, turn around and find out what she's doing.

I think this is more a case of her being inherently bad, not being taken over by something! Sheesh. If you had just said not to trust her I might've been a little more cooperative.

I spin around grabbing my knife. But my hands stay empty. Damned, now I remember. I've lost the knife when I fell and broke my leg. Now my manliness is the only reliable defense left.

"Just a moment."

I grab you and sneak to the door. I press against it as hard as I can, but it doesn't move.

>"Where are you going? I've closed the door. We don't want any monster to come in here, do we. Now come here. Your bandage needs to be fixed or you'll bleed to death before we can reach the exit. I can help you. I'm a doctor after all."

>"All I want to do is to treat your wounds. I have the proper materials right here. Also your leg appears to be working fine. You can't really sneak if your splint clicks with every step. Is there something wrong?"

"Well I'm just a little nervous in this dark room. Can't we turn on a brighter light?"

>"I'm sorry."
she says
>"I'm afraid I damaged the cables when I broke open the doors electric lock. But there's no reason to be nervous. I trusted you earlier, can't you trust me now? We don't have time for mutual mistrust, we have to treat your wounds and then head straight for the exit."

Also, if you want the truth, some of them are shape-shifters, so I can't tell if you are you or an impostor wearing your skin. There are other things that turn me suspicious. Where did the blood come from for example?"

>"Listen! The blood was already here when I entered this room. I worked down here and I know that there are no such things as shapeshifters. That's something they didn't invent yet. But I can understand that you don't want to believe me. I can understand that this place drives you mad and paranoid."
She stocks for a moment and I can see her shivering.
>"This whole place makes you see monster everywhere you look, but you can't give in to this fear. The monster down here don't have to betray you. They're faster and stronger. If they want to kill you they'll just do it. You can't face them alone. Currently I am your only friend down here. I only want to help you because I might need your help to escape again. PLEASE! TRUST ME!"

Grab us and try the door behind the bookcase.

Ask her to come into the light if all she wants to do is fix the bandage. She doesn't need us to come to her.

Tell her if your leg needs bandaging, her legs work fine, can't she come to you so you don't lose more blood?
No. 249529 ID: fd6d7e

OK you're considering distrusting her while trapped in a room by her design and otherwise helpless to her devilish machinations. There was a dire warning left not to trust her, but the one who left it has given you no more reason to trust him than this lab assistant has given you to trust her. Notice they both said they're your only friend. I say trust her, with your knife out. You can't take much more betrayal since you're nearly as un-ambulatory as we are. Tell her we're all scared right now and the best thing to do is just calm down and take things carefully.

"Well, we're all a bit scared. Why don't you come over to me. It's brighter here and you don't have trouble walking."

She stands there a moment before she answers.

>"Ok... I was just a bit grossed out by the blood there. I'll come to you, just wait a moment while I gather the things I've prepared."

There's a moment of silnce before she carries on.

" There's one thing I'm wondering about though. Why are you asking me all this stuff the whole time? You're much more intelligent than the others. A bit too intelligent. You should just be a dumb little puppet with a memory span of some hours. What makes you ask all those questions?"
No. 249637 ID: e9f6d1

well, those are separate. when we met you you showed you were already intelligent. just we are helping give direction to you.
so tell her "i don't know, was just self aware one day i guess, and remember waiting in my cell for many days. but the one asking he questions is my friend here."

"I have vague impressions of the past.

My memory contains indeed far more than the last two hours and my intellect was always far above standard. I strain my thoughts to see how far into the past i can see. I remember growing up in the french monastery as an orphan with a mysterious past ostracised by the other children, who were afraid of my superhuman intelligence and strenght. I remember how I went out into a world full of adventure and learned about my royal heritage. And I remember the hate in the eyes of my evil brother when he threw me into his dungeon, where I had to battle terrible monster to save both you and Isabel many a time.

But it would be the best not to tell her too much and not to tell her about you. I don't want to put you into danger.

"I have vague impressions of the past.
I used to be... something. A person, I think. I don't know why, but I have been this way as long as I can remember."

She turns around and steps closer.
