You tell Fuse what happened.

"No. That doesn't make any sense, we... she was fine on the way over here, right? Like, she could've flipped the truck, or shot us in the back of the head, or... or whatever if she was already infected."

Fuse begins to furiously pace the small hallway.

"Somebody could have broken in while we were down here, but... n-nobody in the upper tiers should be doing Queen! It's underground as all hell, nobody from the upper tiers is going anywhere near the bottom! The only people that ever cross tiers like that are--"

He stops. He turns, driving his fist straight into the wall.

"FUCK! COPS! DIRTY COPS!," he shouts at the wall. "I'm such an idiot! There's dirty cops that come down from the upper tiers, MOSTLY TO DO DRUGS! I didn't even think about it!"

He punches the wall again, shouting another obscenity.

"Cops probably showed up to your house doing a routine check, we heard this house was supposed to be abandoned or some HORSE shit and then they stuck her with Queen! AGH!"

You check your first aid kit. There is a single syringe inside.

Well, time to draw some blood to inject into Michelle... we really should have done this sooner than being forced into it. Fucking hindsight.

If you check this page out, you'll notice Dr. Finch has a stripe of white hair that didn't exist when we first met him. I'm a little concerned that it's because we transfused our blood into him and his body is struggling to keep up somehow. We've already stuck our blood in Fuse and I'm pretty sure this is the only way we'll be able to keep Michelle from killing us, so I'm not saying we shouldn't shoot Michelle up with our wonder-blood, but I'm definitely starting to think there may be hidden consequences to this. I hope there's some way to stabilise whatever our blood causes. :'D

At this point, queen immunity is more important. Side effects can be addressed down the road.

.... we need more guns. sooner than later the Queen's gonna be sending a mob army at us.... hell depending on how far spread it's been administered in secret it may send an ACTUAL army, trained soldiers and what not.
Though from Fuse's perspective training might not be entirely necessary for its troops so long as it can move them properly like fps video game characters.

..................................... Gotta admit, that makes Queen only slightly less scary than The Zerg and The Vord. Vord's slightly more scary than The Zerg because the Vord's far more mobile and it's "mind control" stuff is actually sending things into your body to more or less eat your brain and make your corpse a flesh puppet/organic mech suit.

Vord's from Codex Alera. Nice book series by Jim Butcher. For those who don't know what the Zerg are from.... uh... use google. Those guys are so wide spread even non gamers should know where they're from or what they are.

W.. what?
The Vord and Zerg... are literally the same thing. There is no real difference between them in anything they are or do.
It feels like he changed the name to avoid copyright stuff. I mean he even renamed the Psionics to be "Furies", when you take a step back.

Overminds aren't Vord queens... also their troops are different. They're similar when you take enough steps back but that's more looking at hiveminds as a whole when you're that far back.

This is going to be weird but is it possible to somehow control the bedsheets soaked in blood from our bedroom? Because if it is, I'd like to attempt to control it and bring it over to the parents' room, and use it to kind of constrict Michelle like a straitjacket so it'll be easier to stick her with the needle. Is that possible?

EDIT: Also, uhm, check Fuse's fists? :'D I hope he didn't hurt himself punching the wall like that. If so, uh, bandaids.

Tears and making weird faces - Michelle is fighting it the best she can.
Remote control the bloody bedsheets right into Michelle to blind and/or trip her and create an opportunity to inject her with Jane's blood.

Btw, the bedsheets' blood didn't dry because coagulation is a normal human thing. Jane is obviously way beyond needing that, so her blood never clots - unless she wants it to, probably.
You can't even make it clot on purpose with specific antibodies (which is how current blood tests work).

Now with that military grade door, I'm thinking Jane's the successful result of an experiment in advanced biotech. Cure-all production ? Ultimate universal donor ? Nanomachine resistance ? Black-ops infiltration ? So many possibilities.

Also, I assume we readers will never hear real name ?
Usually those end up related to the big bad or something...
