Herbert shrugged. He hadn't fed the fish for a while...

"Eh, I'll stick around. Got things to... do." He said, turning and walking towards the freezer.

She nodded. "That sounds good. We can probably finish a game of that before night. And-" she looked to the door. "...after those meetings, I'm not sure I want to be seen out in the halls after dark."

She took the game out of the rack. "Let's get started, then!"

Adda nodded and took the lid off of the game while she walked over to a table, sitting down.  She opened the board and grabbed the small green car, setting it down on "GO".

Eloise had managed to shove her meeting to the back of her mind and nodded enthusiastically. Me too, she thought.

She stepped out of the Nurse's office, a bit more slowly than was necessary. A few moments pause and she located the library. There were still a few books she had out, but surely there was no fine for that. The brief thought of having her eye taken out for misplacing a few books gave her a slight chill, though.

She took the blue car and put it down next to Adda's. "You move first, I guess?"

"Was Oscar really there?" she asked suddenly. "I couldn't tell at all. Could you really feel him there or something?"

Adda went through the motions of her turn.

"I definitely felt something, and it definitely felt the way I described.  I just have to trust that my general...feel, I guess, for him was what I felt there too.  There's a bit of faith mixed in with the occult, but in my opinion there's a little bit of it needed for everything."

"Your turn!"

"Er, you have fun with that, I guess." he said with a light shrug. "I'm gonna go head back to the pool or something. Just walk around, I guess. Message me if ya need me." he didn't have much better to do, in all honesty, and he wouldn't mind being messaged. At all.

"See ya then." he said with a wave, walking out of the kitchen and into the cafeteria.

The feeling of biting cold was familiar. Seeing his breath as a white mist was almost calming. He walked in further, taking out one of his knives. He tapped the frozen hunks of meat, hearing the familiar sound of ice against steel. Most were frozen to the core, with layers of ice accumulated from severe freezer burn. That wouldn't be nice to give to the fish...

He turned a corner, hoping that he could find something decent.

He dropped the knife and promptly screamed as loud as he could, falling backwards and scrabbling backwards.

Bodies. All lined up in a row. Alex, Oscar, Asher. All three of them hanging against the wall like a gruesome joke. Today wasn't his day at all.

Laura wheeled herself into the library behind Laura. "Weird to be in here without a group of nerds tagging along," she said aloud, hoping that Eloise would appreciate the joke. Laura had been meaning to get to the library anyway to grab the second book of A Song of Ice and Fire. She was really curious as to how it ended.

"...ah. No wonder I couldn't tell he was there, then." she said, moving her piece. "The only things that ever really makes me hopeful are...are, well." She looked down at her ring. "Silly childish things."

She passed Adda the dice. "Your turn."

Monobear strolled in behind Herbert, dragging a body along.  Jaden's body.  He brushed past Herbert.

" 'Scuse me, just needed to borrow this for a second."  He had a very matter-of-fact tone to his voice as he propped the body up in its spot.

Adda shook her head.

"I don't think it's childish at all.  People can make a memento out of anything, really.  Heck, my hair's a memento, in a way."  She finished moving her piece along.

"B-Borrow?" Herbert stammered, his voice raised. "D'hellya wanted it fer? Is this even real?" Herbert's voice sounded desperate as he tried to stagger to his feet, his eyes riveted in Alex's body.

Of course, it was real. How long did he have to try mask it?

"None of your business.  Now, if you'll excuse me."  Without the destruction that usually followed a Monobear visitation, he strolled out of the room as peaceful and neutral as he had entered.

Within the span of a second, David stopped walking forward, pivoted, and ran back to the freezer. "H-Herb?!" He walked into the freezer, leaving the door open, and walked over.

His face went white and he froze in place. He shook with a bit of terror as Monobear calmly walked past him, and walked over to Herbert. "Yo." he said, voice shaking. It was less of a 'Hey, sup man!' and more of a 'Hey, I'm still here, I heard you screaming I figured it was probably the good idea to come over. I dunno though, now I'm kind of terrified.'

Eloise gave a weak laugh at the joke, finding it slightly too morbid for her tastes. Recalling the fact the actual last murder had taken place in here she gave a more anxious laugh.

She took the paper back, adding a quick,
Well, I'll see you in a bit. I'm gonna see what I can find.


And with that she wandered off into the reference section.

"I suppose." she rolled the die, got snake eyes, and moved 2 spaces. "Er, I'm gonna buy this one," she muttered, doing it by herself. "I guess it feels childish to me because it's been a few years, and it's never changed," she shrugged and smiled a bit, "but if you don't think so, I'll believe you. Your turn, by the way."

Herbert picked the knife back up, his hand shaking as he pocketed it. he nearly cut himself, he was shaking so badly. If he didn't have a reason to tell him, then it was Important. Obviously he was trying to hide his intentions. But...

He walked over, standing at Alexander's body. It felt almost surreal to see the kickboxer again, or anyone on the wall. He reached out his bandaged hand to touch his frozen hair, pulling back when he did so. There was frost on his eyes and a slight smile on his lips, the blood on his body frozen and distorted by crystallization from the water freezing. His hand slowly reached down to flutter above Alex's eyelids, making a move to close them, but the skin wouldn't budge. It was frozen, after all. He shivered, not from the cold, but from something else.

He started to cry.

Adda drew a chance card and collected some money from the bank station.

"I just realized... we've shared our lives, but never talked about the little things.  What's your favorite book?"

Laura figured that her joke went over as well as she could hope for. She watched Eloise go then made her way to the fantasy section, where the next book in the series would be. 

Fortunately, Laura was able to remember where the first book was despite her concussion, so she didn't have to look far to find the second one. And it was at eye level too. Things were looking up for crippled Laura.

She laughed. "Asking a writer what their favorite book is like asking a artist what their painting is." she thought for a moment, stopping the game for a second. "I can't pick a favorite book, but I love tragedies and fantasies." She laughed. "Those are two totally different genres, huh?"

She finally got on with her turn - it was rather uneventful.

"So what's your favorite book?" she asked, returning the question.

It was easy to tell where Eloise left off, because there was a huge space in the shelf where an atlas used to be.

She knelt down and picked through the books, taking in their covers quickly before moving onto another. She found one that looked interesting and pulled it out.
Despite the book's size, Eloise didn't exactly have plans on doing any geographical research or anything too scholarly at all. But the brief glance at the maps and picture told her it had what she wanted.

She walked back to a chair at the center tables, wondering if Laura had any luck.

Adda followed the motions of her turn again.

"Hm... I always liked historical fiction, because I've met people from older time periods.  But to pick one, it's probably The Lovely Bones.  It makes me think about what my dad might be thinking about."  She rubbed the back of her head.

"And to think I thought I could lighten the mood with this topic."

"Your turn."

Laura tucked the book she got, "A Clash of Kings," into a small pouch on the back of her wheelchair and went back towards the entrance to the library. She saw Eloise by the center table on the way and wheeled over to her.

"Got what I came for," she said. "If you're done, I think it'd be best to catch up with the others," she continued. "I wanna make sure we don't have another hospitalization."

Eloise took a notebook page off of the table, a pile that had been gathered not too long ago.
Which of the others?
All I know is Herb and David were in the kitchen. Unless theyre real hungry I dont think theyre still there. We could always message Adda or Marci
