- Subject has reached part 2 of stage 3: A Single Request
- Subject has been asleep for 9 hours. Is roused awake at 12:00 hours.
- Subject receives first meal. Eats the fruit, drinks the coffee. Prods the porridge but does not taste it. Consumes the accompanying honey with the spoon.
- Subject is collected at 13:00 hours and taken to the bathroom. Steps have been taken to avoid the mishap of Observation 131. Subject is shown into private shower facility where she is the sole occupant.
- According to guards, Subject finds the new procedure funny. Laughs for a full minute and jokes that we have ‘got her’.
- Subject asks again for branded shampoo. Claims that the ‘cheap stuff’ is ‘bad for the environment’ and that her hair ‘needs extra special care’. When asked what brand she prefers, Subject states ‘Surprise me’.
- Subject’s tone remains conversational. Has not appeared hostile since altercation in Observation 119D (See Appendix titled ‘2321 Uniform Incident’)
- Subject returns to room at 13:45. At which point, Supervisor enters. He makes small talk with Subject, who is pleasant, almost flirtatious.
- Supervisor tells Subject she can request one thing to pass the afternoon.
- Subject takes approximately 3 minutes to think this proposition over.
- Subject asks for a manicure/pedicure set. Her exact words ‘Nothing fancy. Just a nail set that you could get in Poundland.’
- Subject’s focus on her physical appearance is intriguing given her abilities.
- Could human desire and the condition be linked?
- Subject receives nail kit at 14:30.
- Subject carefully cuts toenails, buffs them with the file. Pays close attention to matching the lengths. Almost files them down to the quick as a result.
- Subject paints toenails. When she makes a mistake she starts again, even if the mistake is minute.
- All in all the process takes 45 minutes. Roughly the same amount of time it took her to shower. Significance?
- N.B. A study of Subject’s past would be useful here. But we continue to struggle to get a single shred of information from her that is true. Clearance to take DNA sample by force is still pending. Until then Subject 2321 remains Unit’s biggest mystery.
