You examine the cola machine. It seems fairly ordinary. You press the buttons, but nothing comes out. You check behind it, but it sits pretty tightly to the wall. You don't have any money to give it.

You check the lockers.

One of them contains a green jacket, red tinted sunglasses, a pack of cigarettes and a fancy lighter.

The other locker is locked. There's a keypad, which requires a four digit code to unlock. The locker is made of heavy, sturdy metal, so you don't think you could move it or chop into it with your axe.

take the fancy lighter, and the cigarettes just in case. it's slim but there is a chance we could run into some hospital horrors, and cigarette smoke is a strong smell that sticks to everything. the lighter isn't a great source of light for exploration, but it's better than nothing. check the pockets of the jacket for anything else.

I wonder if she feels guilty? His mementos are taking up space in a guarded part of her mind...

@Varil: I'm wondering that, too. The lockers could represent the days they worked together.

But given the lock on the other locker, I'm thinking there might be a rather sinister secret hiding here that might possibly reveal why Michelle was rather OK with killing him beyond just protecting her new friend Blondie.

I'm so torn between excitement of learning more, and dreading what's about to come out.

A 4 digit code, huh... there has to be a way to figure that out here. It may not even be numbers, though, given this is a dreamworld.

If we can't find any spare change to feed the soda machine, either give it some blood and control it that way (? not sure if our blood powers work in dreamspace) or axe it open. It's gotta be here for a reason, after all.

Oh, the blood thing is a good idea! It'd be good to know how that works in here.

I'm ambivalent about axing it open. I was hoping maybe we can find some money in the "toy store".

Oh yeah, we could try looking there for monies and possibly clues~

Even though it makes me cry to think of how Michelle thinks of herselkdfjsldkfjlo afwfufuwfufuf *sobs and squeeze-hugs one irreplaceable Michelle*
