As Levon steps forward, she steps back keeping the pain the line of video... and hits the button to start uploading the feed to the Cloud, making sure to get what was already recorded as well as what might come next uploaded as it happens.

Although the speaker is projecting himself as calm, there is a tension about his body, like a coled spring, which Levon and Skye would recognise easier than the others. THe 'brother' behind is subdued.

Levon

Looking away from the speaker and directly at the silent one, he says "Yo. I never heard that language before. You ain't a Brit. I can tell that. Where're you from?"

{Skye}

She moved forward to join Levon. He was escalating this too quickly. "Ah, C'mon, Levon. We need to win this silly pub crawl so I can have a real drink." Yet, she eyed the two men down the arcade corridor looking for telltale signs of weapons.

"Yeah. Right. Anyway, it was nice catching up with you."

He backed up towards Skye and then turned to leave.

He will quietly leave as well, walking back to where Miranda is and says to her, "Well, nothing too exciting which is probably a good thing...", and agreeing with Skye's adds, "Yes, let's hope we can win."

On Levon asking his question, he glances at his 'brother' but then Skye intervenes and the guy looks relieved as the group move away. The speaker signals they should move too and heads away in the opposite direction.

The Clue team head back towards the campus.

Emma

Emma backed away as well, and finished uploading that brief exchange to the cloud... and sending a copy of the video to the phones of those around her. Safety in numbers, or at least in evidence handling?

Most people's pockets or bags beeped as phones receive Emma's message.

Miranda opens her phone and looks at the content.

"That was strange wasn't it? Anyone any theories?"

Emma

Em pauses for a moment, considering. "Well aren't they medical students? Possibly drug trade, or stealing identities from the recently deceased to sell on the black market, if they have access to hospital records." Then she grins, "I would say that it was all about communism, but as we all know, communism is a red herring."

The line about communism was from the movie they were dressed as characters from.

If there was a joke it seems it has gone over his head when Miranda giggles at Emma. As to Miranda's question about what the fight might have been over, he has none and shrugs his shoulders, "The fight could have been over anything. But since you recorded it, I think there's an app to transcribe video if we could figure out what language they are speaking."

The two doctors could have been speaking Japanese, Chinese, Mandarin, or any other east asian dialect.

{Skye}

She'd recognized the line from the movie, but while it was funny - especially to witty college age kids - her military family's experience of living across the DMZ from a autocratic communist regime gave her a twitch. Then again - she was living in England a longways away from her parent's sometimes overbearing views.

"Wait up." She giggled and joined arms with the other women. "Let's just go find those drinks and dates now."

"I think they were arguing about which one of them would score with one of you first," he said towards the women.

The light hearted banter continues as they make their way back to campus where they all assemble in the student bar. Not every team has returned yet but as they hand inb their card and grab a table and drinks, there are other arrivals. Seemingly all the teams must have reported in as the cards are being examined by the officials.

Hilary stands on a table as there is a call for quiet.

"I have the results. I don't know if this is a fore-telling of things to come in the competition but two of the York teams are in first and second place, separated by only one point!"

The York teams all look at each other.

"In first place are the Pirates, second place Clue and in third place the Hippies from Newcastle!"

Everyone seems to be in a good mood and there is applause and cheering. And someone shouts out. "Let's hear it for the organisers!" And the cheering continues.

Hilary shouts out above the cheering.

"Thank you. Now there is no competition tomorrow. It starts the day after but the gym and the swimming pool are available all day. So rest, recover, practice and above all.. HAVE FUN!"

Overall it was a fun time, even though the lack of being able to pop a balloon might have cost them the one point needed to get a tie for first place. He will join in the applause and cheers and once Hilary finishes her announcement Henri will lean closer to Miranda and ask over the noise of the crowd, "Hey! Can I get you another drink then since your fights aren't starting yet?"

She smiles at him.

"Thank you but can I have a lemonade or something as I'm really thirsty. And fancy getting beaten by Mr Harding's team!"

Unlike him she is not analysing why that might be.

"It was fun though, wasn't it?"

"Yes! Definitely."

He was hoping more booze would help lower inhibitions for both of them to have some fun later on their own, but he will relent, flash a smile to Miranda, and say in a slightly subdued tone, "D'accord. One lemon water coming up."

Henri will excuse himself from their table to get the drinks.

{Skye}

It was a fun and silly time, despite the lingering bad feeling from seeing the two guys arguing on the way back. Skye was happy though to be reminded that this first night was about fun - and she had the time to recover from some extra fun. And hopefully not too many bad decisions. Skye headed to the bar.

"Red Breast whisky on the rocks." She ordered. "And with some water." Skye scanned the room for the cuties she saw earlier. Henri is getting drinks for the rest the table and she leans in while waiting, "You and Miranda are a cute couple. I'm so happy for you.

Emma

Emma thought about it, and about her costume. What would Mrs. Peacock order? Or at least what might fit for the time period of the movie? "I will have an Aviation, please." It was different, something fun and mysterious, at least it seemed that way to her.

The guy behind the bar shakes his head. "No red breast, can do Famous Grouse or Johnny Walker or if you want a malt we have Glenmorangie?"

Turning his attention to Emma whilst Skye is talking to Henri.

"I think that's a gin, how about Bombay and tonic? Or maybe a gin cocktail - Ruby Cooler with ginger ale and cranberry juice; or Gin Fizz with lemon and Prosecco?"

Levon

"A pint for me," he says bellying up to the bar near his friends. "That was fun, but I'm wondering about that little mini-skirmish we saw before."

He scans the venue trying to see if he can spot the pair.

Henri

He turns to talk to Skye after ordering a beer for himself and a lemonade for Miranda. "Ahh, thanks Skye, yet its still early to say we're a couple I think. Night's young though. Never know what might happen." He looks around and says with a grin, "Has anyone caught your eye yet?"

Over time he hopes his relationship with Miranda will improve to the point where he can confidently say they are a couple, yet he has in the past been known to say something stupid and mess things up.

Levon looks around the bar but cannot spot the two guys, although he does see one of their team.
