He turned away. What now? Get out! This looks damning – what if somebody saw me here? Wipe my prints off the door, the bottle, the key pad – my gods! The key code! The computer logs all their uses! It'll identify me! What now? But I've done nothing wrong! …But who did this?'

Lofflin forcibly calmed himself, as his thoughts became angry. Who did this?

Then he went over to the intercom panel by the door. As an afterthought, he pushed the door closed. It shut again with a gentle click. A frown crossed his face as he remembered the music.
