Part 132: Pressure Exchange Chamber
VLR OST: [Anxiousness]
Listen in: [English/Japanese]
No, this is the prep room.
There are two levels. The actual pressure exchange chamber is downstairs.
How do you know that?
Alice told me.
She was one of the people who investigated this room.
Did you talk to her when you were waiting for us back in the warehouse?
Seems like it.
Why do they have something like this here?
Well, this is just what Alice told me, but...
Apparently the pressure inside the facility was a lot higher than the pressure outside.
That was part of a system designed to keep the virus from getting in.
It did mean, however, that we'd need to go through a decompression process in order to get outside.
Those keep you from getting infected. We won't even be able to enter the pressure exchange chamber if we don't have them on.
Then that newspaper article was right?!
Unfortunately that seems pretty likely.
So the air out there is teeming with Radical-6...
What is it?
Aren't you saying that if we put on those suits, we can go into the pressure exchange chamber and go outside, right?
Oh, no, we can't do that.
Damnit... Just one door between us and freedom...
Well, if you look at it that way, it's the same as the number nine door.
Okay, yeah, but...
Quark needs it.
Yeah, you're right.
I'll go look around upstairs.
You two take this floor, all right?
[Music fades out]
We looked everywhere we could think of, but turned up nothing.
Eventually I couldn't keep my mouth shut any longer.
VLR OST: [Sinisterness]
A pandemic seems like it would make the news, but I don't remember hearing anything...
Wait a minute... You mentioned it, didn't you? Back when Dio was asking questions?
We were in the infirmary... It was right after Quark lost it.
And then Alice said...
So what's the rumor she was talking about?
I got the feeling you and Alice were talking about the same thing.
Clover... What do you know?
What are you and Alice anyway?
I heard you guys belong to some sort of organization, but what is it?
Clover was quiet for a long time.
She bit her thumbnail and looked down at the floor.
Then finally she lifted her head and met my eyes.
I think I can trust you.
Just... Don't tell Alice, okay?
Clover nodded and began to talk.
