*meanwhile, at the abandoned NEU headquarters*
So this place is really abandoned now?
*looks around the area* Yeah, I'd say so. With President NEU gone, there is nothing left.
Well, there are still a lot of documents here... and neat gadgets.
Don't touch anything.
*picks up a seringe* Hey look at me *pretends to draw blood from his arm* I'm donating blood.
Dude! Put that down! That's an enima seringe!
... *looks at it and then drops it* Eeeeeeeeew!!! Where's the nearest sink?
*looks around* I don't know if they have a sink.
They have to, this place is spotless. Everything is so organized.
What floor are we on? This place has so many basement levels.
Well... according to the number 9 over there, I'd think we're in the 9th basement.
*continues looking* You see any more sets of stairs leading downward?
Nope. *looks by a bookshelf* Hey, what's this? *picks up a piece of paper*
*walks over to Crys* What did you find?
A piece of paper.
Does it have anything written on it?
A-N-J-E-M-A. What does that mean?
Crys... look by that bookcase where you just found that paper.
What about it?
It is a bit away from the wall. Perhaps it moves.
I'll find out. *starts pushing on the bookshelf, which then slides, revealing a locked door and a keypad* Wow!
A locked door. But... the keypad. It's alphabetic.
Crys... I have a funny feeling. Usually only things of the highest security require a alphabetic keypad.
You've really got to stop watching those investigating shows.
What was the writing on that paper again?
*reads it* A-N-J-E-M-A.
*punches in A-N-J-E-M-A into the keypad*
*the door slides open, revealing a stairwell leading down*
Crystal! Good job! You just found a hidden staircase! *starts going down it*
Crys, wait for me to turn on the...
*falls down the stairs* Aaaaaaaaaaaaaah
... light. I swear, you're becoming more like Orakio every day.
