The footsteps continued past the door and down the hall. They stopped, and then there was an insistent knocking on the door at the end of the hall from which Victoria had emerged originally. "Miss Victoria?" called a woman's voice. "Are you all right?"

'Great' Elliot thinks. 'Do they have ESP as well?' He motions for Valarie to keep quiet and Elliot will continue to listen for if the new voice opens her door or if she returns to her room.

The knocking got louder. "Miss Victoria?!" called the woman. Then she opened Victoria's door and walked into the other room.

Elliot is trying to remember the layout of the top floor. is the Stairs down the hall away from Victoria's room?
.
If so, I'm going to wave Valarie over and we are going to make a sneak towards it.
open the door quietly, exit the room, close the door quietly, then sneak down to the stairs and go down, before the person searching the room comes out.

That is the plan.

"The main stairs are in the center of the mansion and heavily trafficked," whispered Valerie, "but there should be servants' stairs nearby." She followed Elliot out the door and down the hall, away from Victoria's room. She tried to be quiet, but even in slippers her footsteps still made some noise. Fortunately, nobody seemed to hear. The two of them hurried around the corner to the left, where the corridor continued for a short distance before turning right. At the end of the corridor was the entrance to a wooden stairway leading up and down. Valerie nodded.

Spoiler:
Part of the problem is that you don't know much of the mansion's layout, but you do know that Victoria's door is in a dead end, so the stairs have to be the other direction. I'll make all rolls for Valerie as needed. Her Sneak skill isn't very good, though I did give her a bonus because she's wearing slippers.

Spoiler:
yea I figured a lot of that, but I couldn't see hanging around there. Do we have cell phones? Or a way for me to contact the other Valarie? That will determine our next move.

.
Elliot puts his gun away, but to where he can get it quickly, and we hide the chain as best we can.
Elliot checks the servant stairs, is anyone on them?

Elliot looked up and down the stairs, and they seemed clear in both directions.

Spoiler:
Cell phones are not very common in 1985, and you don't have them. Walkie-talkies would have been more likely, but nobody requested them during the briefing when they were issuing equipment.

Spoiler:
no problem, I wasn't sure the date.


Elliot goes down the stairs a section at a time with the doctor close by his side. We are going to try and get back to the 1st floor. He is trying to make his way back to the kitchen? But if he sees an exit when he gets to the bottom of the stairs we are taking it. Getting the doctor out is primary mission 1.

Valerie followed Elliot down two flights of stairs to the ground floor. Just outside the stairway, a hallway stretched off to the left and also went straight ahead a short distance, where it turned a corner to the right. Elliot knew that that direction had to lead back to the kitchen, since it was that way towards where the dumbwaiter shaft was located.

Spoiler:
Elliot, please roll Listen.

Elliot nods to Valarie in the direction of the kitchen. "I think its that way, we will need to hurry, they will discover our captive soon," Elliot whispers.
.
Then motions his finger to his lips while he listens up ahead at the path they must take.

Valerie also heard nothing. She stood ready to follow Elliot.

Not hearing anything Elliot creeps up and looks down the hall towards where the kitchen is. If the coast looks clear he'll start heading down that way with the doctor.

Elliot and Valerie proceeded ahead to the corner and looked around it. The hallway in that direction was clear. There were doors lining either side, and another door at the very end, which was closed, led to where the kitchens had to be.

We will head down the hall in a quick manner. Does Elliot recognize this hall from before when they first came in?

Elliot hadn't been in this hall before, but it was the same shape and in the same position as the halls upstairs, though not as elegant. The door at the end of it was in the right place to be the interior door that led out from the kitchen, and it looked like it could be the same one.

Elliot stops for a second to listen for any sounds of alarm or pursuit.

Then he checks that his firearm is still close at hand and heads down to the kitchen door with the doctor in tow. "Hopefully, Valarie will be in here. If I haven't gotten turned around." Elliot then opens the door and checks inside.

Before Elliot opened the door, he heard the murmur of conversation on the other side. One of the voices he recognized as belonging to Valerie Soames, and the other two were unfamiliar female voices.

"Crap" Elliot thinks to himself. It doesn't sound violent, she's probably made friends knowing her.
.
We open the door and walk in like we belonged there. "Oh there you are. Time to get going." and we start to walk towards the original door we came in that should lead us back to the servants entry.

Valerie Kirby followed Elliot into the kitchens, where they saw Valerie Soames chatting with two women, a cook and a kitchen maid from their uniforms. The maid was a pretty girl in her late teens with blonde hair, but the cook was in her thirties and heavyset.

Elliot, you are moving to the thread linked below.
