Harrison watches Henry attempt to pick the lock and offers a try himself with the same results. As Alice heads to the bathroom, he notices that Isadora is not with them.

"Ladies? Is everything okay?" He says as he follows Alice into the bathroom.

Harrison follows Alice to the bathroom, while Henry tries gamely to get the drawer open again.

Spoiler:
Try and force it, roll Strength.


Alice and Harrison enter the bathroom. Isadora is laying fully clothed in the bath, which is almost overflowing. Her eyes are wide open and she stares up at the ceiling. She does not respond to Alice’s shouts.

Spoiler:
Roll SAN! If you fail, lose 1 point.


Spoiler:
Isadora will have no memory of why she did this – it just seems to have happened. When she comes back to her senses and realizes what has happened, she will need to roll SAN. If she passes, lose 1 SAN – if she fails, roll 1d3 for loss.

Isadora Carmichael

When an unknown hand reaches for her, Isadora first reaction is to defend herself - almost dragging Harrison into the bathtub. Then her face breaks the surface of the water, and she screams - or she tries to, but her throat and lungs are filled with water... So she coughs, and gasps, and her limp body falls out of the tub, splashing everybody around with water.

"Goodness!" cries Alice, shutting off the water. When Isdaora falls out of the tub, Alice quickly tries to pump the water out of her lungs.

Isadora responds to Alice’s administrations and she is soon sitting up, breathing in ragged gasps. She is soaking wet of course, as are Alice and Harrison.

"Isadora, what happened? Whatever possessed you to do that? From now on, nobody goes anywhere alone in this house." She looks around. "Where's Henry?"

Isadora Carmichael

Isadora sits there, trembling.

"I... I don't know. I don't remember. The last thing I recall is entering the bathroom."

Alice hands her the towel. "Let's dry off and then get back to Henry," she says.

Isadora will need a change of clothes. Some of Margaret's will still be in her room. She has a turquoise sweater.

"Let me go get some clothes for you," says Alice. "You look to be about Margaret's size. Besides, someone has to check on Henry." She heads back to Margaret's room.

Isadora follows Alice in complete silence. She is still in a sort of catatonic state and shock. The house is... terrible. To take over her body, to push out her soul, with such ease...

Spoiler:
Inside the drawer is a small notebook. Picking it up and flicking through, Henry can see short handwritten entries under dates. It is obviously a diary.
