As I hear Lex scoff, my brow arches slightly, but I decide to hold my tongue, now was not the time for us to bicker amongst ourselves, we needed to know if this place was safe - if it would be a suitable place to set up ‘home’ for at least a few days while we began exploring further afield.
“Well it certainly appears to be an old government building. As far as what was made here? I suppose the only way we’d know for sure is if we got into the filing system and have a read, that’s not of great importance right now though. Lets carry on checking.” I comment as I peer into some of the rooms, trying some of the closed doors as we pass by them, most were locked, others seemed to be conference rooms and there appeared to be a lab; which was also locked. Perhaps this had been one of the testing facilities or maybe Lex actually was correct and nuclear items had been built here.
As we reach the end of the corridor I glance around, we only had one torch so splitting up would be a rather irresponsible option, although it would make this a lot faster. Trying the door to the right I push it open as it clicks and peer into the room, the entire wall facing the door was covered with a map, stepping into the room I glance around for a moment before my eyes return to the wall, at first I’d thought it was just a layout of the building we were currently inside, at a closer glance though it seemed to be a map of the Island, with buildings marked clearly, along with other key features - such as storage warehouses, food sheds and even portable toilets; whatever this place had been used for before the virus it had clearly been something big.
Turning my head I look at Lex and Trudy, then watch Gel for a moment “If these buildings haven’t been looted, we may have got lucky finding this.” I say motioning my head towards the map, but I had a feeling we wouldn’t be quite as lucky as I hoped we might.
