Something has just happened at our Design offices. Our staff is a little shooken up but nobody is harmed. It occurred while i was briefing Hosey, one of our most qualified tailors, on Fabuleux’s design plans. We only had a few more orders from clients left to fulfill before our backlog was cleared up. Hosey has been working non-stop since Fabuleux’s capture to ensure that our deadlines are met.
I was pacing back and forth while reading off what the client liked, what kind of cultural influence they wanted, and some personal notes Fabuleux made. We’ve reached a bit of a roadblock as we were waiting on a delayed delivery of gemstones. Normally our supplier is never this late but there was a considerable length of time before the package showed up. An hour late, one of our interns finally brings in a jewelry box. This is standard packaging. Our supplier is very high-end.
The intern attempts to mention something but Hosey hushes her and tells her to leave. The man hasn’t slept for two days at this point. He rushes over to the table to place the box down. I turned around just as he opens it and I hear this slam noise right behind me. I snap back around and see Hosey just standing there, frozen. He turns around to me and he is noticeably pale. As if he seen a ghost. He opens his mouth to speak, chokes and rushes out of the room.
I approach the table and get a closer look at the jewelry box. It looks normal on the surface. But, i notice it’s “shaking” like something was inside. I felt compelled to open it. I had to know what gave Hosey that kind of reaction. I figured something was in there that could be linked to Fabuleux. It was my job to be on top of that. So i had to open it. I had to know.
I place my hand on the lid and felt a “pulse”. I had to be brave to face what was inside, so I took a deep breath and tossed the lid up. I was horrified by the sight… It was a beating heart! With tubes and wires coming out of it into some machinery that made up the bedding of the box. I screamed and stepped back as far as I could. Then I saw that symbol again. Etched under the lid was that same Winged skull staring back at me. Underneath it were the words “Life beyond death”.
A intern came rushing in. I tell them to call the police. We’ve currently evacuated the upper levels in case that it’s a explosive. The situation is currently in the hands of the authorities.
