Morgenstern
You give Fuse a brief overview of events while you struggle to get up. The stinger in your neck has briefly messed with the nerves running down your back--most of your muscles are not moving. You've seen it plenty of times in sports injuries. Fuse looks absolutely terrified as you rock back and forth, much like a turtle, to get yourself off of your back.

You pop your neck. Loudly. And then you start climbing the vent again.

Michelle has her gun drawn. A second cop also has his gun drawn. A third cop is on the floor with a bullet in the back of his head.

"You've already murdered one police officer," says the man, "how many more do you plan to go through?"

"I dunno," Michelle responds, "how many you got?"

"You can't just walk away from this. Drop the gun."

"Fuck you. You had no problem pullin' the sacrifice play with Fuse, why are you tryin' to fuckin' negotiate now? This your last cop?"

"I just feel that we can be civil about this--"

"YOU TOOK OVER MY BODY, YOU WANNA BE CIVIL?!" Michelle tightens her grip on the gun. It looks like they have each other at a standstill, both barrels pointed at the other.

The officer is so focused on Michelle that he doesn't notice you in the vent.

make your blood stained blankets pull a facehugger on the dirty cop, oh and mentally give Michelle a heads up so she can dodge when you do, cop's first instinct at sudden movement will likely be to shoot.

I really, really hope Fuse thinks to catch us this time if we happen to fall down the vent again. ;;; (If it doesn't occur to him, MAKE HIM THINK IT.)

Can we distract the other cop with the bloody sheet so that Michelle can pop him a new one?

"No problem pulling the sacrifice play with Fuse"? Hmmm.

she's talking about Queen controlling Fuse and how so long as Queen could use him to kill Jane, Michelle snapping Fuse's neck afterwards wouldn't bother it. Because Jane would be dead and there would be no one to oppose it.

Ohhhhh. Thank you for that, I was failing to make the connection XD; so all the cops are in cahoots as well, with the Queen? Or are these just dirty cops? Hmmmmmmm.

my money's on all the cops doing queen/have been forced to do queen are in cahoots with the Queen. whether they like it or not. Other than that, can't say. Sure as hell hope there's some we can pull to our side though.

Does Michelle count as one we've pulled to our side? XD;

But yeah, seriously. We need to get more guns. Michelle shouldn't be the only one with long range firepower.
Oh and after this, Michelle should probably check to see if their kevlar's a good fit. Probably need to doctor it a bit so it doesn't look like police issue but still, body armor's body armor.

Restrict specifically his arms and in particular the one holding the Gun with the bedsheets
