August 18 - 8.00 AM - The meet with Father Colby

Portland, Maine
August, 1928.
Steven Gilbert is a wealthy businessman, a leading exponent of the bourgeoisie of the roaring twenties. He sees his heritage project going up in smoke, when Timothy, his only six-year-old son, disappears.
A group of investigators will try to find his missing son. The group may include:

1) Police detectives
2) Private detective hired by Gilbert
3) Relatives or friends strongly motivated to find the missing kid

But Timothy´s disappearance is not the only gloomy burden weighing on the Gilbert family. Alyssa, Timothy's mother, committed suicide one year ago, and the reason for such an extreme action is still obscure.

As Emma mentions about the Wellington cave, the poor priest stands all spaced out, interrupting his twisted and confused accounts. His troubled mind tries to remember something. His lips trying to say something,

"The... the Wellington cave...."

and eventually they fail.
Suddenly... something throws his whole body into a state of alarm. His eyes seems to see something scary in the investigators presence...

He screrams:
"Who are you? Why did you come here? What do you want from me...? Go away from here. Leave me alone! Leave me alone!"

He tries to throw everybody out of the church.

"Father Colby! Control yourself! What in God's name has gotten into you man?"

Ivy hopes that her directness will snap the priest out of his strange behaviour.

"We don't mean anyone any harm," says Kathryn, her voice flowing with innocence. "We'll leave if you insist, but we only want to help."

As the investigators move a few steps away from him, the priest calms down. He stares at their faces, contamplating their disbelief, still with fear in his eyes. His forehead begins to sweat. He looks around, as if he were not sure about the place he is in. As if his mind had just awakened from a kind of hallucination.

Seconds pass, and the man breathes deeply. The muscles of his face relax. Whatever it was that threatened his mind now seems to vanish, as his breath backs to normality.
He speaks with embarassement, almost wispering... pausing after every single word

"I apologize ..don´t know what's gotten into me... I told you everything I know ... I hope you find the missing kid... now I need to rest and stand alone...
please.....
"

The man is really lost and confused. The investigators have enought knowledge about psychology to hazard hypothesis. The conversation must have awakened a repressed memory. Something that his mind has experienced and then removed. Only something extremely scary and terrifyring could have led his mind to apply such a process of forgetfulness, as a desperate mean of psychological protection.

"Maybe we can help you," says Kathryn. "It can't be easy trying to deal with everything yourself."

As Father Colby collects himself, Ivy whispers to the others.

"Something abut those caves clearly disturbs him. I think perhaps we should leave the poor guy alone and do some more investigating. I vote we speak to Martin's girlfriend and then head down the docks to talk to the captain. If those caves are as terrible as Father Colby clearly thinks they are, it'd help to arm ourselves with some more information."
