Morgenstern
You start to look around your house.

Just in case.

You look in, and around, all the closets. Nothing out of the ordinary.

You boot up your computer to see if anyone's messed with it. Looks like it hasn't been on since... well, since you turned it on last.

You mess with the sheets. Yup, that's definitely your blood. You can move the sheets just like you could your bandages.

You check your bookshelves for hidden levers, prompting a sigh from Michelle. "It hurts my heart to see you lookin' for hidden stuff in your own house. Like... I get it. I'd prob'ly do it, too. It just sucks that this is what it's come to."

You walk into your parents' bedroom, but Fuse is already there. "Do you have a basement?" It's... an abrupt question, but the distant way he says it gives you goosebumps. He already knows the answer, and you already know why he's asking.

No. You tell him... you don't have a basement.

He solemnly nods.

"It goes down. The vent... behind the bed. It goes straight down. I'm sorry, I... the way this day's been, I had to check."

There's a longer pause. A tense silence before he speaks again, just repeating.

"I'm sorry."

.... IT's always the vents isn't it? Ah well. Time to go down the rabbit hole Alice.

This city is just full-a vents people can crawl through, huh? Unless you're a dimi hulk like Michelle.

Aw, Fuse. Pat him on the shoulder to let him know it's okay, he doesn't have to apologise so much. It's a day that's been weird and is only about to get weirder, after all.

Go down the vent with Fuse - carefully. If there's a mutated rat down there that's alive this time, we don't want to get caught off-guard.

I like how all these vents are mysteriously human-fit sized.
