… a large laboratory.
“Well, this is unexpected…” Muttered Angel, rather bluntly to her companions.
In the laboratory, which the hyper Ally lead them further into, there were many cylinders of a clear bubbling liquid, taller than Angel (though that wasn’t saying very much as Angel was a naturally short woman, much like Zaccheus) and occupied by, what looked from a distance like, jellyfish creatures.
Ally ran over to one of the many tubes, and pointed at it, still laughing ever so manically. Maddy made her way over to the crazy friend and, identifying the objects in the tank, beckoned the last girl over.

Plodding was good enough for the humorous, ‘organists-can-be-sexy’, musician and actress.
“Now…” Maddy said to herself, examining the various objects clustered around the laboratory…
