Gas masks, Duct tape

When did you last see her father?

While scarlatti was taking her trip through the see-inside-you machine earlier today, I had a long conversation with her father. As she's commented elsewhere, he's a little odd.

He quizzed me closely about the size of my house, whether or not I had a basement, and the design of my central heating system. He asked me about the quality of the rail service through my local station. He inquired as to the number of people who worked at my office, and the nature of my work.

He didn't quite ask if my intentions toward his daughter were honourable.
