Blue Hemridge

[Voice Memo 1 (3/16/54)]

“The house cleaner was found dead today in the guest room. The law enforcement came and examined
the body. Her heart gave way, or, at least that’s what they told me. It was natural causes. Something seems a bit odd    however, which is why I’m recording my thoughts. I’m positive it is nothing, though.

What a horrible tragedy to fall upon the Hemridge estate.”

[Voice Memo 2 (4/18/54)]

“Today the butcher was found in his workplace. He had apparently fallen onto the buzzsaw while
slicing meat. Two deaths in two months? Unlikely coincidence, or otherwise? I’m beginning to get
a tad… worried.”

[Voice Memo 3 (6/7/54)]

“Jeeves, my dearest butler, rushed into my quarters as pale as a
ghost. He informed me that Matilda, my finest server, had perished. She leapt from the roof of
the estate. The police officers arrived once more, and I requested that one stay at the
mansion, for the safety of myself and my staff.”

[Voice Memo 4 (7/23/54)]

“Now my maid. I… I can’t believe this. All of these damned deaths!
Most of my staff are dead, and the others quit; Fearing their own lives. Cowards…”

[End Recording]

[Voice Memo 5 (9/19/54)]

“This time it was the chef. He was sitting in the kitchen, lifeless.
The police suggested that I leave, and go as far as I possibly can from this wretched place. I’m
taking their suggestion. My bags are all packed, and I’m leaving after I finish this recording.”

“Master Blue?”

“Yes Jeeves? Oh dear… No, No! NO-”

*A loud, piercing noise, similar to a gunshot can be heard, followed
by a distinct thump.*

[End Recording]
