[Sir Prrcyvel]
"If what the man says is true," Sir Prrcyvel says, "then yes, there
was somebody with Lady Louissa."

Sir Prrcyvel leans down beside Oz. "Now, good man, you say a lizard
man was with her. Did she look in distress? How long ago was this?"
[/Sir Prrcyvel]

The guard struggles for words. He's still shaken up and suffering from
what was probably a good whack to the head.

"No, Sir Prrcyvel." he says finally. "Don't think so. She pulled me
in. Seemed like they were working together."

OOC: Kitsune wrote "window", but Vesper was actually looking at a
curtain. I fixed it.

OOC: That's correct

Alex can concur that someone looks to have gone through the curtain.
Clearly Louissa's radio gear is in this room.

Vesper, assured that Alex can take care of herself, moves through the
curtain to reveal a set of doors behind it. These open up on a large
kitchen. It looks to have been recently abandoned, likely due to the
attacks. At the other end of the kitchen are large garage-styled
doors, possibly for a loading bay, and there is another door that must
lead back into the main hallway.

Alex and Vesper notice some bread on the floor and looking up from it,
it looks like someone grabbed some bread and other supplies in a very
big hurry, leaving a mess of bread crumbs, crumbled bits of cheese and
the like. The trail leads to a small door by the garage doors.
