START OF TRANSMISSION
SPECIAL AGENT ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬: You there, ▬▬?
UNIDENTIFIED: I'm here, ▬▬.
SA: ▬▬, ▬▬. Really?
U: Just in case. (pause) You never know.
SA: Whatever you say. You're the brains. (loud thump) Anyway, I'm in.
U: Good. Now, you should be in a long corridor.
SA: Let me just.. (clicking sound) Right. Sure long corridor, one room to my left, one on my right.
U: We don't need those. Keep going forward. (sound of keyboard typing) About 300 yards.
SA: 300 yards. Got it.
U: The rooms to either side were labs mainly, according to the blueprints here.
SA: Shouldn't we..?
U: Believe me, I want to. I can only imagine what lies on the other side of those doors.
U: But you haven't got a lot of time. And the target is priority.
U: Everything OK?
U: That sound.
SA: No sound this end, ▬▬.
U: Interference of some kind perhaps. I'll run a quick diagnostic. (pause) Keep going.
SA: This flashlight is useless. Still hard to see. (pause) It's so dark.
U: I told you, I can't-
SA: I know, I know. You can't remote start the generators as it would draw too much attention. I get it.
U: Remember, we have no ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ whatsoever.
SA: I get it.
U: If ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬. So be careful. Tread soft.
U: ▬▬▬▬▬▬ and ▬▬▬.
SA: Roger that.
U: GPS tells me you've almost reached 300 yards.
SA: 296, 297, 298..
U: Take the next left, then through the first door on your right.
SA: Left, then right. Got it.
U: There it is again.
SA: The noise?
U: Yes. Diagnostic showing a clear signal. You're not hearing it?
SA: All quiet here. ▬▬▬▬▬▬ maybe. You're getting spooked at your old age.
U: Just keep your eyes peeled. (pause) Remember where you are.
SA: Sure thing, Mum. (laugh)
SA: OK. I'm at the stairs.
U: Go down.. (sound of keyboard typing) four levels.
SA: Four levels. Got it.
U: You OK?
SA: Yeah (interference) It's hot down here.
U: Stay focused.
SA: (loud metal clang) Always. (pause) Level four.
U: Now, you should be in another corridor.
SA: I am.
U: Rooms on either side stretching down around.. (sound of keyboard typing) I make it 208 metres.
SA: Let me guess.
U: You want the room at the end.
SA: Course I do.
U: Can you (interference)
U: Can you (interference)
SA: I'm not hearing you, ▬▬▬. Proceeding down corridor.
U: Damn static on the line again.
U: What was that?
SA: Something just moved down here.
U: Don't be paranoid. This place has been closed for years.
SA: Trust me, ▬▬▬. Something moved.
U: ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬.
SA: (heavy breathing) ▬▬▬.
U: Situation report.
SA: It's too dark, I can't see. (pause) Damn flashlight is (interference)
SA: I'm here. Room 815, right?
U: 815, confirm.
SA: What the (interference)
U: ▬▬▬, what the hell's going on?
(loud scuffling sound)
(loud metal clang)
SA: Holy fuck. (heavy breathing) There's something in here with me.
SA: Where the fuck have you sent me?
U: Just relax, remember your (interference)
SA: ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬.
U: Just fucking concentrate. Remember ▬▬▬▬▬▬, they won't ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬.
SA: Fuck all that. This thing, it ain't-
SA: Wait, there's something-
SA: It's a ▬▬▬.
U: Shit. ▬▬▬, get outta there.
SA: Just wait a second.
U: ▬▬▬! Trust me, get (interference)
SA: Hey there ▬▬▬▬▬▬. What on earth are you-
SA: What the-
U: Get outta there!
U: ▬▬▬, report.
U: ▬▬▬, report.
At this point it is noted that the voice on Special Agent ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ comm has drastically changed. This office's analysts best describe it as that of a male child.
U: Who is this?
SA: Thank you for waking me.
U: I repeat, who is this?
SA: My name is Xero, what's yours?
U: Where is Agent ▬▬▬?
SA: I know not of Agent ▬▬▬. Who is this?
U: This is ▬▬▬ of the ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬ ▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬.
SA: Hello there, ▬▬▬ of the ▬▬▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬ ▬▬▬ ▬ ▬▬▬▬▬▬.
