Ch1-9 St Agatha’s

Postby ghill » Sat Nov 26, 2011 12:03 am

St Mark's in Hounslow was built by the Church of England in the 1920’s, was abandoned and fell into disrepair, and is now the home of the Greek Orthodox church in Hounslow. Renamed St Agatha’s it is still clearly being renovated with scaffolding shrouding much of the outside.

The Church itself is set slightly off a busy main road with a small arcade of shops across the road the rest of the street being mixed residential.

"Let's go inside," says Liz. "No sense wasting any time."

"Sounds good to me." Clayton says as he get out of the carriage. "Maybe I'll poke around the back while you go in the front."

Liz gets out of the car too. "Don't do anything I wouldn't do," she says.

Greg says, "I'll go with Clayton... safety in numbers." He looks to Clayton and asks, "If you don't mind. If you'd rather go alone, that's cool too."

Clayton and Greg walk down a path by the side of the church. At the rear is a concreted area littered with out door toys there is a small porch and a backdoor.

At the front Liz pushes open the door the church, inside the church is quite to her left a young woman is dusting one of the church icons.

Spoiler:
Royya you can attach Jacob to Greg/Clayton, Liz or Jason or take another courseof action if you wish.

Can I have a spot hidden for Jason please. I assume he's just waiting in his car or is he getting out.

Jacob will join Liz.

Jason rolls down the window on the driver´s side and lets some smoke out. Doing that he notices something about the church and the surroundings.

Spoiler:
As Jason waves the smoke outside with his hand he notices a short old(er) woman walking across the road from the shops towards the church. Her clothes and looks match the description of Odetta which Greg gave.

"Pardon me," says Liz. "Is Father Marakis here?"

Jason stubs out the stick and exits the car. He approaches the woman and starts up a conversation as he´s a few steps away from her. "Scuse me, I´m Jason Taverner from Second Chance. I´m here to help the little girl from the airport incident. He extends his business card. "I believe you may be in danger, do you accept help?"

Spoiler:
As soon as Jason opens his mouth the woman puts her head down hiding her face and picks up her pace, she almost drops her shopping bags as she struggles through the low gates at the front of the church.
Then in a very thick accent "I don't know anything about the girl...please just leave me alone, I've done nothing."

Inside, the young girl looks up at Liz and Jacob from what she is doing, tucking some errant hair behind her ear with one hand she says something unintelligable while point towards a door at the rear of the church. Liz and Jacob both pick out the words "Father Marakis"

Jason will follow the woman at a distance, not trying to spook her any further. He will stay outside the front doors of the church so he´ll be able to stop anyone trying to leave. He lights the cigarette again.

Clayton looks around to see if there are any cars around the back. He then continues onto the far side of the church to see if there is a door there as well.

"Thank you," says Liz, guessing that the woman probably doesn't speak English, or at least not much. She proceeds to the door at the rear and knocks on it.

Spoiler:
No, there are no cars around the back. Imagine a walled playground about 20' wide and the length of the church (approx 120') the wall surrounding it is about 4' high and has a small ornate cast iron gate at the far end. The gate opens onto a footpath running between the houses which back onto the church.
Spoiler:
Liz & Jacob are both halfway to the doorway, when the door they came in opens with a crash, looking behind them they see a short woman burdened with shopping and clearly in some distress. She glances at Liz and Jacob and then starts making her way around the outside of the church as far away from Liz and Jacob as she can. Idea rolls please
