Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 111: Floor B

Note that the path through the red door sends us around in a massive circle.

Forty-five minutes remain until Ambidex Game polling closes.

One of the other teams must have done it...

But the rest of us aren't even back yet...

Well, we can fix that! C'mon, let's get moving!

Just then--

Did you two just get back?

Yes, we did but--!

Then the team that opened the AB Gate must have been the ones who went through the blue door.

That would be Luna, Phi, and Dio.

Huh? Wait...
You guys went through the green door, didn't you?
Then why the hell did you come out of the blue one?!

There's an explanation for that, I promise.

Quark? No, we haven't seen him. Did something happen?

He's gone!


On the other side of the green door we found a room called the "Treatment Center".
We found our key cards and left, but on our way out he just... disappeared.

So you went through the blue door to see if he'd gone in there?

No, that's not it. Look at this map.

Oooh... So you go through the green door and the treatment center...
And eventually you end up at the blue door.

It looks like there's a pretty big room in the middle there. What is it?

A warehouse similar to the one on floor A.

Huh... Well, maybe he went back to the other floor already?

That is a possibility. I will return and see.

I'm going back through the blue door.
Figure I'll take a look at the area Luna and her team were searching.

I'll come with you, then. We've got a better chance at finding him with two pairs of eyes.

Right. Thanks. Sorry about all this.

I'll help look for him.

Me too!

Then we'll leave floor A to you guys.

Right. Let's go. C'mon, Clover.

Right behind you!

Tenmyouji and I headed through the blue door while Alice, Clover and K climbed into the elevator.

Looks like a bunch of hazmat suits, probably for protection against viral or chemical agents.

So these things keep you from getting sick?

Yeah, that's the idea.
We should ask Luna's group about 'em. They investigated this room first.

Let's have a look then.

Oh Quark...
Where the hell did you go...?
I should have kept a closer eye on him! If I'd just been watching...

Don't worry about it. I'm sure we'll find him.


C'mon, let's go try somewhere else.

I put a gentle hand on his shoulder and guided him toward the exit.

It looks just like the other one.

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

It's pretty close, I'll give you that. Couple differences, though... Have a look over there.

Are these... Chromatic Doors?

Yeah, seems like it.

I guess they're all white doors this time...
We should go tell the--

No. First we look for Quark.



What do you say we head back to floor A for now?
Maybe somebody else has already found him...

All right. Let's go...

We proceed through the usual array of beeping maps and elevator animations. But just for a change, we are interrupted along the way, as we step out of the elevator onto floor A...

Listen in (recommendation factor: above average): [English/Japanese]


Oh, it's just you.
I'm guessing you haven't found Quark?
I ran into Clover and Alice in the warehouse up on floor A.
They told me about Quark and how you're all looking for him.

So he hasn't come back to the warehouse?

Nope. Maybe he just went off to ruminate on a solution to this game.
Chewing his cud, so to speak.


Hey! This is no time for jokes! You should be out there looking for him too!

Uh... Why would I do that? Sounds so boring...

Aren't you worried about him?!

Why the hell would I be worried about some kid I've never even seen before?


For all I know, he's Zero Sr.
He could be hiding in some swank little cubby-hole, swirling a glass of brandy and gloating.

That's insane!

Yeah, there's--

What, there's no way? Are you sure?
Nobody knows what Zero looks like. He could totally be a kid.
I warned you, Tenmyouji. I told you it was a bad idea to just swallow everything that little bastard told you.

I trust Quark!

Heh. Suit yourself. Just don't come crying to me when it bites you in the ass.


The air grew thick with tension, but before their tempers managed to set it alight, Phi burst into the room.

[Music fades out]

We found something! C'mon, all of you!

Did something happen?

Just... You'll understand when you get there, all right? Now come on!

Uh, where are we going?

The crew quarters!

Not again...
