Stephen glanced at Keir and James as they spoke, respectively, before nodding silently and turning to the apartment building.
"Don't hesitate to enter.. if you should need us." The dragonoid informed Intemera.. before stepping towards the front door, opening it, and leading the others inward.
Well, the door didn't quite 'open' so much as 'fall off of its hinges'. A slight sigh and Stephen led them into what one may describe as the 'lobby'.
Said lobby was a dank, dark room. Sure, one could see various decals* about the room that were most likely intended to give the room a comfortable image: a plush red rug that covered the entirety of the room, engraved wooden walls and ceiling, a delicately refined chandelier hanging from the ceiling, and various furniture of sorts set here and there, for comfort of any potential visitors.
Well, all of these items were now covered with a fair coating of grime and dirt. The rug was oddly.. squishy to step on. The walls and ceiling were filled with various small holes. Several of these holes could presumably have been bullet holes. Others were larger..
The chandelier appeared to be silently shedding glass on each passing moment. The furniture.. well, it looked dirty, but it looked fine beyond that.
There was a flight of stairs leading upward at the very back of the room. Next to this flight of stairs was a counter on which a humanoid of some sort had its head slumped. Behind this humanoid was a series of compartments, most closed, a few opened. Presumably for mail. All covered in the same layer of grime.
Next to the counter, finally, was a closed door. It, oddly, had none of the dirtiness of the rest of the room -it was very clean. Almost sparkling, in spite of the rest of the room.
Stephen hmmed and looked around the room briefly. "Feel free to explore around here for a moment." He seemed to be looking towards the compartments behind the humanoid. "I have something to check on."
And so he walked towards said counter, leaving Enlil, Griff, Argus, James, and Keir room to explore and get into shenanigans!
