All four of you walk two blocks south until you find a Quality Inn
. The prices aren't exactly cheap at just under $100 a night, but it is close and while walking, three more cop cars passed by, as well as an ambulance and a fire truck, too.
The outside is nice and clean:
The clerk at the front doesn't give you a second glance, gives you a room. Guess you really do look like college kids now. I assume you grab a set of double beds instead of one queen? Turns out there is a sporting event taking place, this hotel is a little busy. People in the hallways decked out in Coker colors, folks in the lobby watching TV (not a news report), it's lively. You pass a family while walking along the outside walkway to your room, they don't give you a second glance. But the young girl, maybe twelve, she's asking her dad about all the sirens.
The inside of your new room (344) is adorable and clean, a good place for a shower, too.
Unfortunately the free breakfast is the only meal they serve, other than room service. I'll assume whoever wanted a shower took one. Now you can hole up for a couple days at least.
Except for, you know, food.
And like, what the hell is going on.
Otherwise, things are peachy! So, what do you do?
