Elizabeth swiftly ducked into the decrepit building and gratefully shut the door behind her. She breathed an immense sigh of relief when she saw that there wasn’t a single soul in sight, not even the barkeep. The unsavory Graveyard Shift bar wasn’t exactly the ideal place to avoid the violent rioting in the streets, but it was a far better alternative than remaining out in the open. She’d be relatively safe for the night if she hid herself well. At least that was the plan. It was unfortunate that the door didn’t lock, but perhaps if she searched around there would be a spare key of some kind.
Preston E. Downs is a unique character in that you only get to know him through voxophones (like McDonagh in the original Bioshock), but his story is really powerful and legitimately moving and I absolutely love it.
