A large hallway running north-south along the second floor of Kuttner Hall. The second floor of the building holds mostly smaller classrooms and the staff offices. The archaeology department stores it’s collection here on the second floor as well, in a locked room on the south end of the building.

((Assuming it is alright to post here based on your post in the previous thread.))

Regina stops when she reaches the hallway of the second floor, long enough to see, possibly, where the other woman was going. She was hoping she wasn't going where she was heading for, but if she was then she would be polite to her, just it would make avoiding detection a tiny bit harder.

Once she had looked around, she again resumed her pace, making her way towards the Archaeology Room.

(With an OK from Janna...)

Hanners looks over her shoulder at the woman following her and takes a small breath of relief as she notices that they are heading in opposite directions. "Good good. Keep on walking", she quietly says to herself as much as to the girl. She heads for Dr. Phillip's office, now and then checking over her shoulder. "Bothersome, thought I'd be alone", she murmurs.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Regina watches Hannelore, noticing the blonde girl glance over her shoulder as she moves north down the hall. She doesn't seem to be headed for the archaeology room, so after a moment, Regina turns and moves to the locked door at the southern end of the hall. Using the key she received from Dr. Kirkner, Regina opens the door and slips inside the crowded room. She thinks the clay tablets would be on one of the shelves here, still in a shipping crate from Kuwait.

Hannelore walks down the hall to Dr. Phillips' office, trying the door. It seems like her fears were correct and the door is locked. She remembers that a Professor Price ended up taking over most of Dr. Phillips's classes and thinks that maybe Price would have a key in his office. On the other hand, she thinks, it might be possible to pick the lock on the door since nobody is around.

Hanners bites her lower lip as she stares at the defiant lock. She reaches into a pocket of her jacket and pulls out a jacknife. "Worth a shot" she murmurs as she starts to poke around the lock with the blade.

Alexis rushes up the stairs, taking no effort to hide her presence (since she has an actual reason to be here after hours), heading for Professor Price's room. Her footsteps on the stairs are easily heard by Hannelore, crouching in front of the door working at it with her switchblade.

It is also overheard by Regina, just before she shuts the door to the Archaeology Storage room behind her.

Hannelore struggles with the lock, but after a few moments work, is rewarded with a click as she succeeds in picking the lock. Unfortunately, it's possible this running girl might have seen what she is doing.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Alexis keeps running down the hall, but slows down when she notices the other girl crouched in front of the door, raising an eyebrow. "Excuse me," she said, "but Dr. Phillips isn't in right now... I mean... he's dead." She kept walking towards Price's office, and said, "Professor Price took over his classes, if you need to talk to someone."

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hanners shoots into a straight position. "I know he's dead. I'm just - think, Hanners - saying goodbye." She waves it off and keeps on watching the girl. As soon as she's far enough away she reaches backwards, opens the door and slips inside.

(I'll wait for Alexis to react, if she wants to, before updating again)

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Alexis looks back at the strange girl as she disappears into Dr. Phillips office, wondering if she should do something, but decides she really needs to get her paper to Professor Price instead. She hurries down the hall to Price's office and knocks before walking in while saying, "Professor Price, I have my paper for you!"

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hannelore moves into Dr. Phillip's office, closing the door behind her.

There is no response to Alexis' knock. It's possible that Proffessor Price has gone home for the day. Looking at the door, Alexis notices that there are apparently no lights on inside the room.

Alexis sighs as she sees the dark room. She walks in and tries to find a light switch or a lamp. Even if Price wasn't here now, she'd better leave the paper in his inbox.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hannelore races back out into the hallway, and notices the door to Professor Price's office is wide open. It sounds like there is some kind of fight going on inside.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Regina exits the room she was in, and closes it behind her, not bothering to turn the knob again. She moves a bit into the hall way, to make it seem as if maybe she had come from another room, listening for the repeats of the sounds, looking for anything out of the ordinary.

((Not sure if she can see Hannelore from her vantage point or not, so leaving that open))

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hannelore doesn't seem to notice Regina, preoccupied with something going on inside the office at the north end of the hall. When Regina enters the hallway, she can more clearly hear some kind of struggle and a woman screaming from inside that room.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

((Still not clear if Regina can see Hannelore or not, however...))

The sounds of the scuffle and scream are enough to tell her that something more than just a simple argument is going on. She had brought her weapon with her, but she didn't want to use it in here if she could avoid it. However, she did move towards the office where the scream and scuffle was seeming to come from.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hannelore walks up to Price's office, one hand in her pocket and closed around the jackknife. She tries to see something inside the dark office.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Regina sees the blonde girl approach the office, slipping her hand into her pocket.

Hannelore looks into the office and sees another student, wrestling around in the dark with something crawling on her. Is she being attacked by rats? The light is a little too dim to make it out from this distance.

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Hannelore steps into the room, the hand still in her pocket. "Is... everything alright? Don't let it be rats, I don't trust these outside of a cage."

Re: Kuttner Hall, Second Floor Hallway

Regina doesn't waste much time, something was obviously up. She crosses the remaining distance quickly, peering into the room, ready to enter if she needed to. "What the hell is going on?"
