You Explore Jessica's Condominium
ON THE BALCONY
There are plants everywhere, many of them bearing exotic
flowers. Each plant is carefully labeled with names like Cymbidium
Near the rail, a rack of young plants has been knocked
over. Terra cotta pot shards crunch underfoot. A rich smelly dirt covers
IN THE LIVING ROOM
Everything is neat as a pin. More of the exotic plants
adorn the coffee table. On a side table, a fat candle gutters, illuminating
an electric clock with hands frozen at 2:03. The front door is wide
open. There is no sign of Eric.
IN JESSICA'S BEDROOM
Everything is neat and clean. A business blouse and skirt,
neatly pressed, hang from the closet doorknob. You see jewelry and other
things arranged on the dresser.
There's a book face down upon the rumpled bed.
Above the bed, the windows are thrown wide open in hopes of a cooling
breeze. Outside, the entire city is dark, except for a tall building
all lit up in the distance. You recognize that building: Mercy Hospital.
IN THE KITCHEN
The kitchen is immaculate. On the refrigerator hangs a
pad that says "TO DO TODAY!" across the top. You open up the
refrigerator, and see it's completely empty.
