    Re: Horizon Research and Treatment Center - Admin Building and Dormitory

    When Bell glanced back at the old man, he seemed amused at something he was reading... Or he'd noticed the sprite and Bell's reaction. Still, he'd not reacted overly.

    The book only tipped slightly, before a small click was heard. Should Bell release it, the book would slide back into place, before the bookshelf swung quietly back against the wall of a revealed hallway, short in length before turning to the left. The room the hallway opened to on the other end was obviously lit up.

      The drow seemed quite surprised by the development, heading down the revealed corridor slowly. When she reached the end, she‘d peek into the lit room, staying in the hall. “Mr. Cross? Are you in there?“

        When Bell looked in the room, it might surprise her. Then again, with everything else happening recently, maybe not.

        Immediately inside were banks of wall displays, showing what initially seemed to be a variety of information about the Center itself. Although the first about half of the room's floor was clear, a holographic map of the Center, with certain pieces of information displayed about each building, was currently being projected into the open area. Behind that were two massive, nearly floor-to-ceiling hardware housing rigs, likely for the room's systems. Somewhat in between the two "racks" was a workstation of sorts, this showing a number of flat holographic display panels up.

        These panels were "pushed" aside, almost like someone opening curtains, as Cross, who was behind them, spoke. "Yeah, something come up, Bell?"

        Either he'd guessed that she would have been able to find it herself, or he'd forgotten he'd not told her about opening the door.

          The most surprising thing Bell found about the setuf was how much like her own it looked like, albeit Cross' had a fair bit more apparent power behind it. Realtime holographic interfaces tended to be drow in nature, or at least more common for them. "Yeah, you said to mention when anything else wierd showed up. Was on the grass outside when a fott tall human woman with insectile wings told me not to forget, then zoomed off into one of the upper windows here. I think it was the one outside, cause it appeared again when I was trying to find my way in here. Don't know if the old man out there saw it or not." She explained, her tone becoming increasingly exasperated.

            Cross seemed to frown slightly at her description of the creature that had appeared. "Huh. Sounds like it was a Pixie. They're usually rather harmless most of the time, and in fact they're ofte... Wait, an old man?" He sighed slightly. "Shiraishi, probably. I was kind of hoping he'd have been here before you this morning. He's far better at explaining this mess than I am. Which would also explain the Pixie. He likely figured things out, and sent his around to test you slightly. Not the easiest of methods to deal with, though."

              "He knows too?" She asked, her aye starting to twitch a little. "What was he testing me for? Resistance to heart attacks?"

                Nate gave a nervous chuckle. "Had that thought myself, when he was teaching me. Yes, he knows as well. And as you might have guessed, he's actually the one who taught me when I learned, so he's probably better at explaining the whole mess than I am."

                  Bell sighed, glancing back the way she had come. "You want me to go talk to him, don't you?" She asked, exasperated. "Something about him just feels off to me. I just wanna forget this all happened..."

                    Nate let out a sigh of his own. "I think I might be able to explain a bit as to why he seems a little off. As near as I can tell, he was born with the ability to see them. Not like me, where I learned. Not like you, where there's just glimpses of them. From the get-go, as near as I can tell, he's seen them."

                    Another sigh, then, "If you don't want to speak with him, I can't force you to. I would suggest it, though. If there's a way to block this, he might know of it, or how to find it. But I'm not going to sit here and say that there is a way, because I don't know.

                    If the need arises in that situation, I'll ask him to write up a message containing the specifics, both what I told you earlier as well as any clarifications or things that I missed."

                    Nate stopped long enough to fiddle with one of the screens briefly, then added another comment. "In either case, I've sent an additional set of coding to the holo-bracer I gave you yesterday. What it will do is project a field of sorts around the wearer that will significantly protect against attacks from them. At this point, it's the best I know how to do for your situation."
