Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

by Fedule

Part 92: Infirmary

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Forty-five minutes remain until Ambidex Game polling closes.

VLR OST: [Strain]

Maybe someone from another team opened one of them.
They must have found a moon card...

Well why the hell would they just go and open one of the doors on their own?!

We should get back upstairs.
Whoever jumped the gun is probably in the warehouse.

Right! Okay, let's go!

The red door is weird in that it doesn't actually lead into Warehouse B. Not that this matters in the greater scheme of things but hey.

Why'd you open one of the AB Rooms before the rest of us got back?!

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Clover and I haven't done anything.

Dio didn't feel like waiting, I guess.

Yes! Yes I do have a problem!

I don't remember saying anything about waiting until everyone got back to open the AB Rooms.

Are you kidding me? We didn't talk about it because we thought it was common sense!

Sigma's right.
We were able to get back quickly, but...
The others could still be stuck somewhere!
What if they can't get back in time?!

Did something happen...?

Yes... It's Quark, you see. He...

What happened to Quark?!

He collapsed.
It happened so suddenly. We were just searching our room...

Please, you must hurry to the infirmary!
His condition could change at any moment.
You should go...

Oh no...

And thus we once again end up with Quark hospitalized.

VLR OST: [Divulgation]

This whole bit happens, and Tenmyouji demands to know if anyone found any Axelavir. Since we all went to different rooms this time:

I don't think anybody would put medicine there...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Was there any medicine in your room?!

I'm terribly sorry. There was nothing of the sort in the archives.
Books and so on in abundance, but... no medicine.

Oh God...
Then he's... he's going to... Oh God no...

Look, just to be sure...
Where did the three of you go?

It was kinda like a park, with trees and stuff.


Yeah... No medicine.
Maybe some medicinal plants...?

From there we move on...

...through this whole episode...

this whole episode...

...and we begin the search for Alice.

VLR OST: [Consternation]

Damn! Where did she go?!

K, Quark and Alice searched this room...

Damn... Nothing here either!
We need to find her quick, or she's gonna do something bad.
If she loses it like Quark did, and nobody's around to stop her...

Shit, I need to hurry!

[Music fades out]

Just like Clover said...
Plants and stuff everywhere.

I walked slowly down the path, still slightly stunned.
Most of the facility had been cold, dull metal, but this room was positively... verdant.

Man... Hard to believe there's something like this here...
What the hell is this even for?

As strange as the garden was, Alice needed to be my priority.
I reined my thoughts back in, and continued down off the path and into the grass.

I'd only gone a few steps when I stopped short.

999 OST: [Trepidation]


Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Oh, there you are. Good. I'm glad you showed up.
I just got here a minute ago.
She was like this when I found her.
When you showed up, I was getting ready to take her to the infirmary.

Then she's... uh... alive?

Yeah. Her breathing and pulse seem normal.
She doesn't appear to have any obvious external wounds.

So she's just unconscious.

Looks like it.

What about the scalpel?

Doesn't look like she has it. I figure she probably dropped it on the way here.
Anyway, we need to get her to the infirmary.
Gimmie a hand here.

There's... something I need to tell you.
Just stay calm.


Look to the right...

My right or your right?

...Your right.

This... this is a bomb!

I'm pretty sure someone didn't move it here from the crew quarters.
In fact, I'm pretty sure it's an entirely different bomb.
Look at the number on the side.

It says "01".

Shit! Then there's no question, huh?

I've got more good news.
Just think about the numbers for a moment...

You're saying there's a "02" bomb out there somewhere!

I can't be sure, but it does seem pretty likely.

That means we're talking about an explosion the size of three tons of TNT.


Clover, Tenmyouji and Dio investigated the garden.
There's also a chance someone else set it.
Anyone could have come here after they left, and before we showed up.


Anyway, we need to move Alice.
Help me out here.

[Music fades out]

And so Alice is bought back to the Infirmary. Since nobody went to the Laboratory on this route, we have no Axelavir and we don't know about the IG Replicator.

VLR OST: [Desperation]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Oh, Alice...
I don't want you to die!

Please... Please don't die!
I don't want to be alone... Don't diieeeeeeee!
