The Unexplored Places

AE: What time did you notice that the item was missing from the vault? 

JN: When Praetor Zeal used her pass to open the vault.

AE: And what time was that?

JN: She called you right after, I mean, [garbled]

AE: It’s for the record, Naismith. I need you to say it, for the record. 

JN: It was around four.

AE: And prior to Zeal entering the vault and seeing that it was missing, when did you last see the item?

JN: When did I last see it? I don’t think I ever saw it. I wasn’t on shift when you guys put it in the vault, I don’t have access to the vault—

AE: [overlapping] There’s no need to raise your voice, Naismith. It’s just a formality.

JN: I just stand where you people tell me to stand and make sure no one tries to go in who isn’t supposed to go in! And no one did, while I was on shift! The Praetor was the only person I saw, the entire time I was guarding the vault, and I told you that already so I don’t understand why you had to bring me into an interrogation room—

AE: This isn’t an interrogation. 

JN: Well it feels like one! I got the nervous sweats over here, and I didn’t even do anything wrong. Are you always this scary? 

AE: Did anyone else attempt to enter into or come out of the vault during your shift, prior to Praetor Zeal’s arrival? 

JN: Of course not, I would have said something if—

AE: For the record. 

[a pause]

JN: No. No one attempted to enter or exit the vault during my shift. 

AE: And did you hear anything, from inside the vault?

JN: Inside the vault? What the fuck, is that thing alive?
