The scorpion is cleaning up there! I hope he leaves some people alive to clean up the mess, would be a shame of the hotel otherwise
So, ancient Chinese mausoleum eh. Hmmmm, interesting.
A nasty mess is a small price to pay for the hotel owner and the employees if they could avoid a massive invasion of the Fourth Reich . As for the mausoleum, we still have a bit more ground to cover before we get there.

Xue excused herself from her group so she could answer her phone in private. The others were discussing plans about exploring the mausoleum and she was caught up as well before the phone call. At first, she thought about not answering but, when he saw the number, she knew she must pick up. Xue made her way to the bedroom closing the door behind her.
"Hello, this is Hacker 3."
"It's good to hear from you," the other person said cheerfully, "Hacker 3."
"Just get straight to business," Xue said with a hint of impatience, "Hacker 7."
"You never checked on me after the surprise attack," Hacker 7 said with disappointment.
"You're as resilient as cockroaches."
"You might be right. Anyways, we've found Hacker 2."
Xue felt her heart stop for a beat. She took a few deep breaths. "When? Where? How?"
"Slow down with the questions." Hacker 7 paused for a moment. "We've found his corpse along with Chukchov."
"It couldn't be an coincidence."
"I agree. Hacker 2 also left something behind for you."
"This isn't the time to kid around." Xue felt herself blush.
"I'm not kidding around. His last message is to deliver this to you."
"Alright," said Xue with a more serious tone, "when can you get it to me?"
"I'm sending it right this moment. It must be important so I think it's best you go through it before you go anywhere."
"Yet you don't know what it is?"
"It's been locked and apparently you're the only one with the key. Nice talking to you."
Hacker 7 ended the call leaving Xue sitting on her bed. She waited a few seconds before there was an indication of an attachment to her mail. She opened the attachment which asked for a password. She looked at the hint and smiled. Entering the correct password, Xue began reading through the text.
