Well, that sounds good. Reasonably assured that she won't be melting into a little puddle today, Curiosity blinks out of the text even as it continues to scroll and returns most of her attention to her conversation, pondering Ollie's words. "I see what you mean. After all, that's kind of how androids work, so I guess it could also apply to places. Huh. I never thought about it that way." It would be nice to talk to places, but Curiosity doesn't feel too bitter about it. She would much rather talk to people.
Finally, the doorway is open, the slab of metal falling inward to reveal a room. Curiosity lowers his pistol and looks into the room, taking in the lines of welding and the hot lump of metal in the center. Is that what's been giving off so much heat?
"Yeah, they kind of do." It's a little weird that the welding isn't just... you know, holding two pieces of metal together. Curiosity is pretty sure that this isn't how welding is supposed to act. Again, the organic appearance and behavior intrigues them. Is the lump the core of this place? Is that what's making everything move? They can't quite shake the feeling that, whatever it is, it's going to spontaneously decide that it doesn't want them there. That would be a fun twist, if it jumped up and started hassling them. Is it moving?
Before she goes to get a closer look, though, Curiosity looks up at the closest welding line, the one Ollie pointed to. "I don't see why not. If you do cut it down, could I have some to study?" It doesn't look like the lines are supporting anything, after all. Surely just taking a little couldn't hurt. She's sure Brendan would want some, even if she isn't able to figure it out herself.
"Are we supposed to be waiting for the others before we investigate?" Curiosity thinks to ask, glancing back down the hallway at the door they came through. Then at the lump in the room they've opened. The heat should go back to normal soon enough, but they itch to investigate now.
