Part 65: Reminiscing while Looking Through the Window

Music: Razzle Dazzle

Remember when we sold the wax to Tony for his audition? The novel revealed that he didn't pass

Music stops

I'm woken up by the sound coming from the TV.

You can't ask that when you just said it's from the TV.

I'm too lazy to make a sprite for Kyle waking up

"Now for today's special feature. We take a look at the jewellery robberies that rocked LA two decades ago.

market, but the group itself vanished from the face of the earth some 13 years ago.

and considering the possibility that they may be connected to these past robberies. This is Robert Harrison for 5 News, signing off."

We now can interact with the TV as normal, but we've seen all the other channels (Cool Pop commercial, sitcom, Pinkie Rabbit), so let's just turn it off and move on with our lives.

Music: Mulling It Over

It all comes back to me, I remember talking to Dylan, then being invited to the bar by Tony for a few drinks. As I try to get my thoughts from the day before in order, I make my way over to the window and open the blinds.

As I gradually open them, I see the familiar backdrop come into focus before me.

Now that I think about it, my mom must have seen a similar sight... After my dad was killed, on the morning Mom and I planned to leave this town, she stood in front of the window in the room she'd once shared with Dad. She said nothing, just stared into the distance.

Music: Heating Up

(Damn, my throat's so dry... Can't believe I got drunk on a Monday night. I'm such a bum. There's only one remedy for this - a trip to the café.)

Music: Overstepped Memory
That's our cue to go to the...

*Machine sounds*


Wasn't that elevator broken? Why would they bother fixing it this close to demolition?

Music: Blue Lady
Well hello there, Mr Hyde.
Looks like the elevator's working again.
mags2: After all the inconvenience, it has finally been repaired.
You and the other residents will be able to make use of it from today onwards. It's a shame that it got repaired so close to when we will have to vacate, though.
Even so, this should make it more convenient for everyone when they move their things.
I'm sure it will.

Yeah, that makes sense.

However, every silver lining has its cloud.

But what will happen to the drinks?

I see. That's a shame...
I can't tell you how often I made use of the old thing.
You were a frequent customer, were you?
Mrs Patrice, could you delay removing the machine until the last day instead? I love the Cool Pop from that machine. I think I'm addicted to the stuff.
Much as I'd love to do so, Mr Hyde, I'm afraid I can't.
I fully appreciate that all the tenants are under a lot of stress and strain,
but please don't forget that I am as well. I have so many things to do before then.
I wouldn't want there to be any last-minute trouble before I hand the place over.

By trouble, do you mean threats?

By trouble, do you mean threats?

Mrs Patrice...
What made you come out with something like that?

I heard from Dylan

I can see nothing wrong with doing this

I heard from Dylan.

He told me that you're only selling this place because you're being threatened.
That's a ridiculous thing to say, Mr Hyde!
I think there's been some sort of misunderstanding on Dylan's part.
So he got his facts wrong?
He has indeed!
Why on earth would anyone be threatening me?

Aside from the secret you obviously have? No reason.

Mr Hyde, I really thought you'd be the last person to buy into gossip of that sort!
I must be going now!

Mrs Patrice heads back to her room.

Yep. Nothing is wrong here

(So it looks like our beloved vending machine's going to disappear tomorrow.)

Music: Overstepped Memory
Now that the distraction's over, let's actually go get some food po...

...oh. That's a shame.

Knock No point knocking on the door of a closed café.

(Looks like I'm too early. The café's not open yet.)
(No sense in wasting a trip though. I'll just grab something from the trusty machine.)

Yes, this is what I meant when I said it's mandatory for us to buy a drink. Whichever drink we buy here will give us the winning bottle cap (if we didn't have it already).

I open the bottle and glug the whole thing down.

Now, did I pick a winner?
This bottle cap...

*beeping sound*

It's my pager.

I'm sure you guys are itching to try out the elevator now that it's fixed. I'm sad to tell you that the elevator is not a shortcut since it actually takes a longer time than just going up the stairs. So we won't be looking at it right now.

Instead, we'll just go up the stairs and go back to...

I probably should've made a count of the number of times Kyle said "Huh?". It probably could've rivaled Ceodore (although this game has much more dialogue, so it's not a fair comparison).

Music: Ace of Diamonds

Mr Hyde! Did you say something to Mrs Patrice?
Like what?
Like about the threats!

Music: Joke's On You
I asked you to keep what I said a secret! Why would you go and ask her directly like that?
Listen, Dylan...
You're a real piece of work, you know that?!
I should never have trusted you!


Goddammit Dylan! I thought you were better than that!

Music: Dream's End
(Damn, that actually hurt! Dylan packs quite a punch.)

Sorry, it just kind of slipped out.

Tony: 7
Dylan: 4
Frank: 3
Mags: 2
Charles: 2
Rex: 1
Marie: 1
Betty: 1
Punch: 5

Yes, I'm blaming Dylan for this. He should've known the risks of being an informant
