Orpheus – Trial by Fire (part 2)

Excerpts from the journal of Connor Galloway, an employee of Orpheus and member of Crucible 7.

 

Richmond Virginia, October 10, 2013.

On the way from the hospital to the office we once again passed the Church. We debated whether we were in a state to go in and properly check it out. Dahlia seemed to have recovered quite quickly and was pretty adamant we should. The debate left us a little ways past the actual building so I had to turn around to head back to their carpark.

Outside the front door a small group had gathered. A suited black man was speaking to a young woman who was the definition of white-trash, like someone you’d see on tv. Standing next to these two was a large guy in a shirt and dress-pants, his head was shaven bald.

PIGMENT POISON- RIchmond Times Dispatch

It’s been a couple of years now since the first murmurs of a new menace rose from the dark streets where pushers and addicts ply their foul trade. They called it “pigment”, a supposed heroin derivative – like crack is to cocaine – but thanks to various chemical additives is far more dangerous. Last week, however, the Drug Enforcement Administration testified before a congressional panel on drug abuse that pigment presents a greater danger than originally anticipated.

“Ghost Security Cameras” set to hit the market in the coming weeks. So called “Kirlian Cameras” (After Gustav Kirlian, the scientist who first theorized the technology) have been developed by an R&D division of Terrel & Squibb and are said to be able to extend far beyond the visible spectrum and detect “spooks”. Though the resolution is quite poor in the initial versions, Terrel & Squib representatives claim “More advanced versions are already under development.” The cameras are expected to carry a heavy pricetag, though initial response from investors has been positive.

So I’m sitting here in the hospital, figured I have some time to write while I wait.

When we got back to the Orpheus building last night a spook met us at the door. He said he needed to talk to Dan. It wasn’t until the morning that we would find out his body wasn’t coping well with the cryo-sleep.

Orpheus – Exposure

Excerpts from the journal of Connor Galloway, an employee of Orpheus and member of Crucible 7.

 

Richmond Virginia, October 9, 2013.

Warren was back on the door this morning when I arrived. He nodded at me and smiled as I swiped myself in. There were already a bunch of people working and the whole office area had a positive buzz to it. I started walking towards the elevator but stopped when I spotted a maintenance guy applying the last few letters to a conference room door. It read, “Crucible 7.” Turns out we’ve got our own little office now.
