Ori nodded and opened his mouth, but before he could say anything Blair spoke up. He stood and leaned over the table, pointing at the monitor. “Look at the time stamp in the lower right corner. This was recorded almost two days before the first security feed we saw.”
A door swung open and one of the women wearing a mask moved forward. She stopped, leaned up on her toes, pulled down the mask and kissed the air.
“That’s two vampires for sure,” Ori pointed out.
“Look at her hair, she’s got curly black hair. I think that’s the same woman who was…” Blair faltered for a second. “Eaten by a vampire in the first bit of footage.”
“I wonder if it was the same vampire,” Forge said, his voice just above a whisper.
No one seemed alarmed or hurried until one of the Mayo stands crashed to the floor. Part of the exam table was blocked from the camera’s view by a man standing beside it. He jumped and spun to one side. There was no sound, but it was clear what happened next caused sheer pandemonium. The woman with the curly black hair was hustled out of the room by someone unseen, leaving the doors swinging a few times in their wake.
The other two people in the room scrambled away from the metal tables. One who appeared to be a man under his surgical garb grabbed up a scalpel from the tray that remained standing.
