Default warehouse 13 (IC)

Ted Barlowe had had an almost normal day that day. Classes had gone well, his assistants handling most things, and for once had absolutely nothing on his schedule.

As he enteres his office this fine fall afternoon, he finds a middle aged woman standing looking at his bookshelf rather intently. She stands about 5 feet 6 inches tall, dressed impeccably in a tailored well fitting skirt suit in muted earth tones, her hair styled simply but professionally.

"hello Mr Barlowe"

she speaks with a refined voice but does not turn around as he enters.

He was used to having students drop in at odd hours, as he had an open door policy. They did come in all ages and walks of life as well, so this did not seem too odd to him. "Just give me a second to get oriented, and I will be right with you." He puts all his material neatly on his desk, sits in his chair and finally addresses the person. "Now..how may I help you?"

She finally turns to face him and presents herself as an older woman, maybe in her late 40s, and speaks.

"We have been watching you for a while Mr Barlowe. I'm here to tell you that you are being transfer to another department for a while..."

She produces a manilla envelope from under her arm hand places it on the desk.

If he glances down at it then back up, she will have vanished.

inside the envelope is a picture, a plane ticket, and a letter.

The picture is of what appears to be a gold coin, closely resembling something from south america.

the letter states simply that if he'd like to expand upon his research beyond anything he could ever imagine, to use the plane ticket and someone will be there to meet him.

The plane ticket is to somewhere in South Dakota, and is for tomorrow afternoon (friday)

He informs the university he is going on sabbatical, and prepares for his trip. He will make the flight.

the flight is uneventful, and arrives early, upon heading to the baggage claim he sees a young woman dressed in slacks and a loose t-shirt, holding a sign (upside down ironically) with his name on it looking around rather distractedly.

He approaches her "I guess you are looking for me?"

Ted thinks a bit. "Well, if I start on a lecture I can talk until the students beg for mercy, I just still have to figure out what exactly is going on. Still, your explanation has helped a bit. I think I must see what you are talking about first hand. It would help me tremendously." he orders a decent meal. "All this sounds intriguing at least. I think you might be delusional, but I will at least give you a chance to prove what you say is true."

"Naw my last psych exam cleared me of being insane or delusional. I was actually due to leave for a case tomorrow, so you might get a taste of it sooner then you think, but i left all my gear back at the warehouse, Artie needed my tesla for an upgrade or something."

She digs into her food with a healthy appitite as she continues speaking, "Listen I was as skeptical as you are, but a few to many weird things have happened since i joined but I've had alot of fun with some of the less dangerous things in the warehouse....like the bottomless cookie jar, or the freezing snowglobe or the silly string."

He chuckles "You make it sound interesting, I am starting to look forward to it. I have no idea what to expect, but sometimes life is more interesting that way. I look forward to examining all these objects you speak of."

"Lets see if I can remember them all.... Warehouse 1 was in Greece, sometime by alexander the great. Warehouse 2 was in Egypt, Warehouse 3 was in Italy, Warehouse 4 was created by the Huns, Warehouse 5 was in Byzantine, Warehouse 6 was in Cambodia, Warehouse 7 was in Mongolia, Warehouse 8 was in Germany, Warehouse 9 was in Turkey, Warehouse 10 was in India, Warehouse 11 was in Russia, Warehouse 12 was in Britain, Warehouse 13 was in America and currently is here, obviously. Theres a manual with all this information that I can let you read my copy at some point. They've been all over the world since before the burning of Alexandria, the great library the history books say exsist there? That was the warehouse."
