Danes: relaxed his muscles, progressively; feet, through legs, through torso, neck and head. Cleared mind.
DeStiy: remembered failing to summon the Utmost Evil in a church basement, later realising his mistake and scarring his chest with a knife as punishment for his own stupidity.
Reimnitz: felt her hands tremble, heard her grandmother's admonishing voice in her head.
Her: jumbled thoughts. Clang. Prison air, cabbage and sweat. Clang. No exit.
Lopez: looked around the room. Her grandmother had left. Didn't understand what this meant.
Ryland: denied his own fear. Maintained control, stating: "We should begin Mr Danes."
