[IC - MEXICO] Estudio del Mañana

A decade ago, a band of occult investigators battled against the summoning of an ancient and monstrous evil. They failed. Now you must piece together the puzzle and finish what they could not. The stakes are high, and so is the price to pay. Can you do it?

"I don't think so, Cam has proven that he is a force to be reckoned with. Plus he has Clarence to help back him up... I suspect that whoever is taking refuge inside will be swiftly subdued." Christopher pulls a face of distaste as he draws out his automatic pistol and steps back a little to have a better angle on the doorway. "But... one should always try and expect the unexpected ..."

Cameron puts the gun in his pocket and calls out to Clarence.

“It’s okay now Clarence. Ask the others to come in.”

He turns back to the man, keeping his pistol on him all the time.

“Well, it’s very simple. Talk to us and you live. Lie to us and you die. Do you understand?”

The man looks terrified as he pleads: "Did Konovalov send you? Please, tell him I'll do anything they want. Just don't kill me. Please".

Meanwhile, Clarence heads outside and gestures the others in: "All clear".

"I'll ask the questions."

Cameron indicates a chair with the barrel of his pistol.

"Sit down. Now, what's your name?"

"Well, ain't that good news for us, then. How great." Huang Yan said, bored.

Before Chrisopher could reply to Huang Yan he spied Clarence beckoning for them to come in.

"Looks like we don't need to stand guard any more.. you go inside, I'll appraise Holly that Cam and Clarence have cleared the way."

Christopher pockets his pistol and walks back around to the front of the building and approaches the car. "Clarence says it's 'all clear', do you want to go inside?" he asks Holly.

Spoiler:
Christopher will stay outside, whoever Cam has captured might have friends coming - so he will stay on lookout.

Holly nods and gets out of the car, letting Christopher replace her in the driver's seat if he wishes. She follows the others inside.

The man casts a scared glance at the newcomers, then sits on the chair as instructed. "Victor. My name is Victor Cortéz".

"Hello, my name is Andrew Huang, an antique store owner coming to check on a few things, senõr. I hope I'm not being too rude." Huang Yan said, smiling good-naturedly.

"Huang Yan, go and check Victor's belongings, and see if he has any ID. And do it now".

He addresses Victor. "Why are you hiding here, Victor?"

Huang Yan sighed, he had originally intended to lie and disguise his identity. He followed Cameron's instructions and proceeded to check Victor's belongings.

OOC:   Alright, I use evidence collection.

Holly approaches the frightened man. "We're not your enemies, Victor," she says with a smile in a soothing tone. "In fact, we can protect you. But to do that effectively, we need to know what you know."

"Please trust that we don't mean any harm. We're just concerned 'bout a few things. After all, we're all neighbours here in Mexico." Huang Yan said, with gusto.

The man speaks a decent English and seems somewhat encouraged from not having been shot yet. He starts talking slowly, looking down: "I'm staying here, because it's safer. I did business with some dangerous people. I didn't know they were dangerous then, although I should have suspected it, I think. Like Jorge did. He told me 'Victor, I'm not doing business with them anymore. Those songs are evil', he told me", now that he has started talking, he just speaks faster and faster, throwing out a river of words with an anguished voice: "And then he told them. Brooks and Leticia. And a couple of days later they burned down his shop. And Konovalov came and he told me that work had to keep going as usual, and I was scared, but I had no other choice, and we recorded more songs, but then I couldn't take it anymore, and the next time Brooks came, I locked the door, and he kept banging on the door but I did not let him in, and now I can't even go back home, it's not safe there, Konovalov and his men came there, and I ran away from the back, and now... and now...", he finally stops, and starts crying.

Spoiler:
You find an old safe hidden behind a painting on a wall. Apart from that, there is nothing worthwhile to be found here.

"And what do you know about Konovalov?" asks Holly. "Is he the boss, or is there someone above him giving him orders?"

"There's a safe hidden behind the painting. Do anyone want to go and have a crack at it?" Huang Yan shouted.

"I'm no cracksman," says Holly, "but someone could borrow my stethoscope to listen to the tumblers. I saw it in a movie once."
