Not sure if anyone else is following this but just in case, just in case they do, This is a followup of the Secret(hidden for now) topics:
IC-1.3 Night 3-  A Window to the South.
And
IC- 1.3 Night 3 - Shepard and Sheep.

(The Titles are mostly random).




Motel Room 10 , 3rd floor 21:00PM...

Gwen and Burke enter the messy room, followed by Gary who enters shortly after talking to Burke about showers.
The room is still dusty, lit by the faint light of the ceiling's 60w lamp that needs replacing and there is a large amount of spilled blood soaked into the indigo colored carpet floor at the center of the room near the foot of the double bed where Tomaz lies, he looks unconsious and somewhat more pale looking than Gary or Gwen remember.

Tomaz seems to be tied up using a cable to what appears to be a cut off long aluminium shower rod that runs behind his back, restraining his arms and legs awkwardly like a pig on a spit., the Blanket sheets removed from the bed are torn, tying the shower pole between the front legs of the bed, hopefully restraining the soon to be awakened dead man.

The Two Red Maple leaf stamped Pillows thrown about and the bloodstaining the carpet and blanket as well as what looks like a pile of ash and bone fragments imply of the struggle that went in there

Abigail Stands next to Tomaz, towering above him, looking at her cellphone.

Gary , Gwen and Burke may notice that Adrian is no where in sight.

As Gary enters the hotel room the first thing his eyes fix on is the door leading to what has to be the bathroom. Gary eagerly rubs his hands together (unintenionally causing some of the skin on his hands to peel off and fall to the ground) and begins walking towards the door. Right before he puts his hand on the doorknob however, he sees Abigail. "Ah, you must be...argh" Gary rubs his forehead with finger and thumb like he just realised something, before continiouing, "A cat came up to me and told me you need to meet up at the "machine making place" tommorow at nightfall. Dont ask." He waves his hand dismissively before quickly heading into the bathroom.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Gary would've been an elderly man in life, though at this point it's extremely hard to tell exacly how old. He's wearing an old, tattered business suit that's been through just as much as the guy wearing it with fake leather shoes. His hair's black, though he's obviously balding. Most of his skin is red , covered in bumbs or sores and peeling. Especially his arms show signs of him having been scratching immensely. His eyes are sunken, the white of his eyes have begun to take a yellow sheen. His walking shows his back is somewhat hunched over.

Spoiler for Hiden:
For the benefit of Gary and Gwen, who haven't seen Abigail yet: As you come into the room you see a young woman in a faded but otherwise clean-cut leather jacket. Her blonde hair falls down to her shoulders in golden curls, and despite the bloodstains on her clothes and in her hair, you are well aware of her beauty (Appearance 4).

Abigail stands nonchalantly above Tomaz's hogtied corpse with a cheap flip-phone in her hand, a black dangling cord connecting it to the wall somewhere behind the nightstand of the bed. When she hears the door opening, she coils reflexively to place her left side forward, dropping her right arm to her waist, a hidden fist clenched and ready.

When she sees Gabriel step into the room she relaxes for just a second, and almost shoots him a grin, thinking about her handiwork with his little pet. But he is followed. Abigail tenses again as Burke emerges into the room to reveal some hipster chick, and a...a - what the fuck was that? She furrows her brow in confusion as the pair enters the room. Jesus, that is one fucked up suit. Are these the others Burke and Adrian had talked about? Or was this some new shit, to deal with what had happened...

The fucked-up suit walks past her toward the bathroom, just-as-he-please, before turning around to give her a message. Startled, the confusion drops from her face like a mask. She looks at the man appraisingly - into his dead, piss-stained eyes; a hint of what could almost be compassion were it not surrounded by dried blood smears and deep red stains. She nods at the man.

The moment passes though, and Abigail turns again toward Burke - an impatient, imploring look on her face.

Gwendolyn walks in hanging off Burke's arm as if they were almost a couple, almost but not quite. As they enter the room, she pushes off and heads for the window, staring out of it for awhile. She doesn't pay the blonde much heed nor the other man; more concerned to keep looking outside for the time being. Shes relatively attractive [Appearance 3] with a tomboyish haircut, that has been mussed and half ass attempted to be fixed recently. Unlike the others her clothes are in much better shape except for her shoes; sneakers that have seen better days, are scuffed and some what dirty.

Gary walks into the bathroom and locks the door behind him. Soon afterwards, the sound of rushing water can be heard.

Burke walks in the door with gwen on his arm, and cannot help but grin when he sees Tomaz hog-tied on the floor.
His eyes sparkle with mirth as he looks over at Abigail, releasing Gwen's arm as she heads over to the window.


"A T.V. cable, huh? Very creative. I take it he hasn't... Woken up yet?"

Burke's eyes go from smiling to being laced with concern.
"I don't think it's supposed to take this long... In any case, thanks very much for watching him for me. I wanted to make sure we all got back together, as something or someone clearly wants us dead."
Burke watches Gary go into the bathroom with a slight raise of his eyebrow. When he hears the water running, he scrunches up his face in disgust a little.
"Something tells me he's going to leave as much of himself in that shower as he takes out. I was contemplating having one... But now, no go. I think I'm going to take a cab back home at some point, get a change of clothes and a shower or something."

Gwendolyn turns for a moment, just to interject.

"Er. Dead-er."

Then goes back to glaring out the window grinning to herself.

Burke concedes the point with a conciliatory incline of his head.

"Dead-er."

Abigail glances down to her phone. 25% battery remaining. That would have to do for now. She unplugs the cord, and gathers it from behind the nightstand, shoving it into the satchel hanging by her hip.

She walks over to Burke and slides in beside him, holding her phone out in front of them to display the text message she had received. She scans the message again, peering over his shoulder.

Burke nods grimly and holds up his own phone to show her, saying nothing: This one is the same as yours but with a request to ensure the others attend as well.

"Do you have a car, Abigail?"

Burke pauses for a moment, awaiting her reply, and then rubs his eyes as though they are causing him great discomfort.

"Also, I'm being very rude. Abigail, this is Gwen, an associate of mine. The one who just went into the shower to molt is Gary. Gwen, this is Abigail."

Gwendolyn slowly turns, with a twitch, then a smile.

"Hi."

"Nice to meet you."

"Don't say much do you?"

"Really into that phone are you?"

"I never really understood the whole appeal of the smart phones myself."

She then glares awhile, smiling, quite creepily, waiting for a reply that will no doubtedly never come.

Burke blinks, obviously trying his best not to seem unnerved by the interaction going on in front of him. The dichotomy of a MASSIVE amount of words coupled with so much silence sends a chill up his spine for reasons he can't fully comprehend.

Burke lets the silence linger a moment longer, trying to figure out if Abigail would consider it rude for him to answer a question so clearly posed to her.

Abigail stands there beside Burke, blinking. This woman must be off her meds. Not that being on them would do anything, she wonders, remembering Burke's conversation with Tomaz. God help us all, she sarcastically prays to her sanity, and her patience.

Hesitantly, as if reaching out to touch a burn victim or petting a great white shark, Abigail raises her hand into a terse wave, letting it linger in the air a moment along with the silence it symbolized.

Returning her attention to her phone, her fingers flash across the keypad and she raises it so Burke can see.

No car. Sry.

"Oh."

"You can't talk?"

"Do you know sign language?"

"What was it again?"

"Hmm.."

She starts making a variety of signs, some half right, some way off base and senseless, others that seem like they should be from baseball or in a gang. Afterwards, she stands there expecting to have done a good job, smiling and waiting.

Burke rubs the bridge of his nose, as though he is used to there being glasses there, but is distracted by his burning eyes- so he rubs those instead. The look on his face as he turns to look at the two is one of weariness.
