"I'd like it please!" I called up.
This crate was much more cramped them my metal crate home. However, I'm rather short for my age, so the crate was manageable enough. Eerie climbed into the cot with a grimace and pulled the blanket over her head. Soon, her gentle snoring met my ears.
I, however, couldn't sleep. I adjusted to a sitting position in the crate and watched Eerie sleep soundly. As I watched her, I wondered if that cot was ment for Hyde, after his long day of work. I cringed at the thought of steeling his cot for who know how long.
I stepped out of the crate and paced silently around the room, wondering whether or not I should wake Eerie and tell her.
If she did have to move, where else would she go? However, we shouldn't simply kick Hyde out of his living quarters
Suddenly, I saw a figure descending the ladder. I scrambled for a hiding place as the fellow reached the end if the ladder, glanced about him, and crept off as silently as a cat.
I stared blankly ahead of me, mysteries tying my mind in knots. The man who left was none other then Edward Hyde.
How in Aethasia could he have come from up there?
I narrowed my eyes and stood up from my position behind a trash can. There was more to be done tonight. I scaled the rope ladder and investigated the lab, searching for some way Hyde could have come from.
I ran my hand along each of the shelves, feeling for any hidden button or leaver.
"He- he's out for the day. He usually returns by dusk... To watch over things... While I rest."
I stared curiously at the neat rows of test tubes and chemical compounds. Selecting one, I held it to eye level before returning it. The desk full of papers next caught my eye. I walked over to the desk and read the title page of a small spread of papers.
'Man's Internal Duality' how strange . . .
