9:05 P.M.

There is a momentary break in the music coming from the ballroom.

You see a young woman dressed as Cleopatra appear at the top of the stairs behind Sgt. Duffy, then you run and dive down the laundry chute. Behind you, you hear Brother Sputum shout, "Salvatore, you idiot! You've ruined everything!"

There is a moment of giddy exhilaration as you plummet down the chute before landing in a pile of soft laundry. Suddenly, the wind is knocked from your lungs as Brother Sputum lands right on top of you.

As soon as you are able to untangle yourself from Brother Sputum, you see that you are in a small laundry room. A door in the south wall hangs open to reveal a large kitchen, filled with black smoke and the unpleasant smell of burning meat.  You notice drops of blood spattered on the floor and various bags of laundry at the bottom of the chute.

Chip and Brother Puris are standing in the doorway, gaping at you in disbelief. You notice that Chip is still clutching his gun, and the front of Brother Puris' Indian costume is soaked with blood.

If you stand up and say, "Chip...what happened?" (and if you're feeling a bad case of heartburn coming on), click here.
