Voice Mail: Love "Cassandra" Goodchild to Quintin Vale; February 23, 2009

[Cassandra's voice sounds very small and uncertain. She tries to sound optimistic though, at least at the start.]

"Hey Quintin... er... Mr. Vale. This is Cassandra. Prince Wright gave me your contact info... so I assume it's okay if I call.

"I'm... uh... I don't really know how to convey my personal sympathetic upsetness with what happened to Jennifer and everything. I can't even begin... I mean... I s'pose I'll start with an I'm sorry.

"Not a "This is all my fault" sorry...just a "I feel sorrow" sorry. I also want to tell you that even if you probably feel like... feel like I do that there's blood on our hands... well... GOD I'm awful at this.

I just wanted to call and ask if you're okay to start with, but I think I've messed it up. Give me a moment.

Voice Mail: Love "Cassandra" Goodchild to Quintin Vale; February 23, 2009

[Second voice mail. Half an hour after the first. Cassandra sounds a little more confident, but she still wavers here and there.]

"Quintin. Cassandra again. I wrote out what I was thinking of saying this time if it went to voice mail. Sorry if it's kind of stilted and all...

"I don't think I need to go further into how upset I am or how upset you are. I will say that this wasn't right. I don't think it can be made right. Jennifer can't be brought back. I think, though, that even if I'm not going to get very far that I have to try to make it as right as I can.

[emphatically]

"This isn't about revenge. Nobody should get hurt. Even if they deserve it.

"This is about stating simply that murder isn't acceptable and that people need to be reminded of this until they understand. I use the word people for a reason.

[pause]

"If this isn't something you want to get wrapped up in, I can take that. I know I'm insane, and that everyone in my shoes is a danger to everyone in yours. I'm going to find out what happened on that bridge though. It's important... important for a lot of reasons...

"If you don't want to...

[Third voice mail. A few minutes after the second. Cassandra sounds childlike and calm.]

"Man. I babble a lot on voicemails. I'm sorry.

"What I meant to say, Quintin. I meant to say that I can be okay if you don't call back or if you don't want involvement, but I thought you might.

Don't do anything you don't want to, but let me know... if you can... I mean.. could you get me the footage from that night when Jenny caught the cab? Just... nothing confidential, but you offered.

"I can sometimes... I can see things people miss.

"I hope... yeah... I mean... I just hope. Period. What else can I... I guess that's all.

Voice Mail: Quintin Vale to Love "Cassandra" Goodchild; February 23, 2009

[The next night Cassandra will find a voice mail left for her. The time stamp on it is from early afternoon, and it has been left by Quintin. He is talking slowly and obviously choosing his words carefully.]

"Hi, Cassandra. It's Quintin calling back. So... I know it's kind of rude for me to be leaving a message while you're sleeping, but I don't really feel up to talking this through right now. I hope you can understand.

"I guess I keep thinking about what happened to Jennifer... and it still feels really... well, it feels fucked up. I want to blame Clarke, hating him for this would be easy but I don't know if that's right. I keep wondering what if he was right, what if someone messed with her to hurt him. Brody, err... Prince Wright seems to think he might have been right on that.

I guess I want...

[The next voice mail is from a few minutes later. Quintin's voice is faster and slightly louder now.]

"Sorry, guess the message was too long.

"So, I was saying I need some closure on this, and I need to know if she did this on her own or not. So, ya, I'll get you the security tapes. I was going to try to talk to Marcus about this, I mean he's a police officer and might have some ideas. And, I dunno, he's Giovanni and they... can deal with stuff like this, right?

"This coming Elysium I'm going to take care of some personal business, so I won't be there. I'll try to have the tapes delivered to you. I don't know if you want to give out your address or not, if not I can have them set aside this Friday.

"Anyway, call me back and let me know what to do with the tapes.

Voice Mail: Quintin Vale to Love "Cassandra" Goodchild; February 24, 2009

[Cassandra receives a voice mail from Quintin the next day, this time he is speaking in a rushed and obviously nervous voice.]

"Cassandra. It's Quinn. I uh, watched the tapes for myself, and ya there's something fucked up when she leaves. I don't wanna to tell you what I think it is 'cause I'd like to see if you think the same. I think you should see this before Elysium. I'm going to have to show this to Brody, too. Ya. Call me.

[Cassandra sounds frantic and a little bit on the ecstatic side of things. She is obviously rather emotionally invested in the stream of words that fall from her lips.]

"Quinn? Sorryaboutnotcallingbacksooner! I got distracted and sort of ended up... I mean... wow... this is a weird time to get this sort of call. I just got back from... um things. If you... good God, I've been wracking what's left of my brain over this one for so long. Glossy passed out again.... anyhow, just please, I'll look it over. You can get it to us at:

"PO Box 4327! Care of Doris Cleanfellow (It's Pansy. Don't ask.)

"PO Box Four. Three. Two. Seven. Doris. Cleanfellow.

"Thankyousomuch. Seriously though. If you want to I'll jump in MG Joe and drive to wherever you're calling from.

"I could kiss you right now... except well... that might be weird...

"THANKSAGAIN!"

Note: Quintin Vale to Love "Cassandra" Goodchild; February 26, 2009

[A DVD will be delivered to the PO Box with a handwritten note inside the case.]

"This is the only copy of the footage besides the original and what I'm sending to Prince Wright. I'm doing some research into it and will gladly keep you up to date on that. I feel that it's best we try to keep this fairly quiet until we know more.

"- Quintin"

Voice Mail: Love "Cassandra" Goodchild to Quintin Vale; February 26, 2009

[Cassandra sounds quietly depressed and her words seem extremely carefully chosen.]

"Quintin. I got somewhere, I think.

"Barnaby Boxer, the cab driver was effected by some power of the blood I cannot quite pinpoint. Nobody actually touched Jenny. I'm guessing it was hypnotic. I'm guessing it was in the parking lot and took about fifteen minutes.

"This... this information does not have associated facts. It's known only by the part of my brain that carries my Clan's curse. I'm relatively certain, I'm right though... not 100%, but an even 85 at least. I'll find more out by the end of the night. I touched... I touched base with Brody. Don't worry. You aren't in trouble.

"I have some other people digging still. I'm... I'm sorry I wasn't stronger with things. I saw it... I sort of knew... not in a magic way or anything... I just knew. I shouldn't have left.

"Thank you again.

[pause]

"I'll fix this."
