The Primrose Files


As much as Connor tries to keep his desk in order, paper work keeps piling up. We unearthed these internal memos from the bottom drawer of his desk.

From: R. Holloway – Research

Subject: Magical earrings?


Attached you’ll find a copy of my report on the magical earrings team Alpha found last week. Memo P111051509S1537 / 15-05-2011.

The research was...interesting to say the least. Many of our female researchers eagerly offered to test them out. Unfortunately, we had to destroy the earrings to find out what caused the headless look. I’ve boxed the pieces and sent them to Archives, along with the report.

Subject: Glowing rocks


Remember that A-watch alert I told you about yesterday? Where we found those fluorescent rocks? Anyway, Jimenez forgot to put gloves on before he touched them, and apparently the rocks give off some sort of residue. No idea what it is, I haven’t had the results from Research back yet, but it’s STILL on his hands.

He’s tried to wash it off several times already, but every time we turned off the lights in the locker room, his hands would light up like crazy. And not just his hands. Everything he touches lights up in the dark. He won’t be forgetting his gloves anytime soon.

Maintenance is none too happy about it either.



PS: I’m gagging for ice cream. Want to hit the park during lunch?
