I couldn't figure out where he went.
Usually Captain would explain the type of quest that Pilot was granted like that flying machine nonsense.
However, this time, Captain asked me where Pilot went and whether I've seen him and whether I can do Pilot's job instead if he's not coming back.
Then, I was handed a piece of paper that said:
(( DRESS SNIPPY UP FOR THE SUNSHINE PARADE WHILE HE SLEEPS. MAKE SURE TO TAPE A LARGE CANDLE TO HIS HEAD FOR MAXIMUM SYMBOLISM AND LIGHT IT UP. ))
"So, you want me to dress myself up while I sleep?"
"This isn't happening, you know."
"THINK OF THE SUNSHINE! DO YOU WANT TO MAKE ALL THE CHILDREN SAD?"
I slipped out, while Captain's attention then turned onto Engie with demands of building a "NEW MECHANICAL MINION".
I've scouted the surrounding territory all day, hoping to track down the usual trail of Pilot.
Dead Zone training made me into a pretty good tracker, besides Pilot usually left trails of crayons, glitter or paint.
There was nothing, as if he just evaporated right after he ran outside.
When I came back to the building in the evening, I overheard a conversation and thinking it was Captain and Engie I walked into the room.
It wasn't them at all. It was something else entirely...
