Your Host Welcomes You

Come in! I’m glad you made it.

Take a seat – anywhere is fine. Here, I’ll take your coats. It’s very cold tonight, but it’s warm in here. I’ve been here for a while, so I’ve got the fire roaring, as you can see. No, no, you’re not late. I was early. I needed to get things… ready before we began.

Devices off, please. Oh, and the room’s on private mode so none of your biotech will function – but it’s nice to be offline sometimes, isn’t it?

Please, take a drink. I’m so glad you like it. You’ll need it for what comes next. It is an unusual flavour, isn’t it?

You’re tired, I can tell. So exhausted you can barely keep your eyes open! Don’t you worry. Rest your eyes awhile. Just sit back and relax.

Sleep. Let me take care of everything.
