The House

So, we've arrived here at the House, as of a few hours ago. It's... interesting. I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this. It's... fucking huge, for one thing. And it feels very... I dunno, empty. Maybe it's because the wing they've got me in is almost completely empty, but it just feels too quiet for a house with seven people living in it.

In any event, we arrived... late this morning, after getting horribly lost. I wish I remembered more of the approach but I fell asleep in the car. I woke up inside, in a bed. Took me a minute to figure out what had happened, but Spence was waiting for me outside.
He showed me around, got me some food, told me a bit more about the House. It all felt so... I dunno, peaceful. Nice to have something so domestic and comfortable in the middle of this. It's... I dunno, it's looking like I may honestly have some time to sit back and digest and plan my next move.

Also. Spencer gave me a key. He says he doesn't know what it opens, and I certainly don't, but he's given me free reign to find out. Which is in fact why I am cutting this post short. I've got exploring to do. And hopefully meeting at least some of the rest of the couriers in the process. It feels strange being in their House without having ever met them.


  1. hm. I wish.
    There's rooms I haven't been in. Rooms that I looked at once, locked, and threw away the key. I'm not sure where it leads; too busy to find out myself.

    And hey; maybe she'll find a good story to tell.

  2. Elaine, if you're exploring the madhouse you're braver than I.

    I salute you.

  3. Glad to hear you found the place, Elaine. The House is kind of.... elusive, haha. I'm sure you've found that out the hard way.

    And as for the key? Start on the third floor. Stay away from the glass doors in the living room.

  4. Dia, I wish.

    Spence, thank you. Seriously.

    And Nemo, it's really not that scary.

  5. August, that we did. I'll try the third floor-I think I know what those doors are and I'm well aware Spence wouldn't just give me the key for that.

  6. Exploration. A wonderful way to pass the hours. Usually, anyway.
    I hope that you find something useful.

  7. Detoxing in the madhouse? Elaine, you're a brave woman.

  8. Zia, it's an adventure.

    Lexi, I promise it's really the best place I could imagine for this.
