Interview of Inmate 37

Regarding the Incident of January 8, 1963

Interviewer:
Would you please state for the record your name, and designation.

Inmate 37:
Brian Heart, Inmate 37.

Interviewer:
Let it be herein noted that Inmate 37, Brian Heart, has, of his own free will, agreed to this interview. Would you please tell us, Brian, what happened on the evening of the 8th of January, 1963, in section D, the gym?

Inmate 37:
They came toward us—

Interviewer:
Who?

Inmate 37:
Those damn blasted Crypts. They came towards us, their fangs dripping with venom. They were about to attack us when he showed up.

Interviewer:
He?

Inmate 37:
You know who, fool.

Interviewer:
For the records, please state who.

Inmate 37:
That freaky human you got locked up in here with us. They call him Ben.

Interviewer:
Benedict Hume?

Inmate 37:
I remember the lights all flashed suddenly, like someone was playing with the switch, and the doorway was still lit with his shadow stretching out over those Crypts. That was when I first noticed him, his shadow. It was Ben, in the doorway.

(The inmate pauses)

Interviewer:
Then what happened?

Inmate 37:
Then what happened? He started speaking to them in their own tongue. You know, he was making them clicks and growls them Crypts do. They were all aflutter, like scared pigeons, flapping their leather wings about. Then one of the Crypts started talking with him, trying to look real big with his bat-wings all stretched out. He said something though, scared that lizard so bad he started molting, he did.

Interviewer:
Just so we’re clear: Inmate 30, known as Ben, spoke to the Cryptids in their own language. An unspecified Cryptid then approached Inmate 30 in a threatening way, but was himself intimidated by something Inmate 30 said.

Inmate 37:
Yeah. Real scared he was, and the others weren’t looking to hot neither. They all were sort of shaken, probably never heard a human talking to them in their own language.
(Inmate 37 asks for water)
Then he looked at us—

End of Interview.
