Ask about what Wen Mingde is troubling over

๐Ÿ“ Herta Space Station Base Zone

Wen Mingde, the leader of the Curio Collection Squad, is troubling over a runaway Curio โ€” the Xenohydro. He has a mission that requires the help of a junior assistant like you. He needs you to bring back the missing researcher, Abraham.
Mr. Wen, excuse me...
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
...Who? Who is interrupting me? If it is the Xenohydro, then show yourself at once!
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Ahem, so it's you, {NICKNAME}. You're also here to volunteer in the Curio Collection Squad... Wait, don't come over here!
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Just say one or two words.
Options
...
One.
Ahahaha.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
I'm not kidding. You have to say one and two.
Options
One.
One, two.
Ahahaha.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
You don't have to laugh like that.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
You don't have to laugh like that.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
... No abnormal watery sound in your pronunciation. Pupillary reflex normal, perspiration reaction normal.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Okay, now you can come over and let me touch your foreheadโ€”
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
The Xenohydro can't achieve this level of likeness... Alas, the lead was once again inconclusive. Even if the recollection of Curios is the top priority in the Declaration of Revival, it is proving to be a difficult task in practice.
Options
Xenohydro?
Curio Collection?
Declaration of Revival?
Well, you truly are a man of dedication, Mr. Wen.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
As you know, since the establishment of the Herta Space Station, five departments have been established to focus on the collection and study of Curios, including Ecology, Geopolitics, Mysticism, Geography, and Implement Arts.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
This monster invasion caused the loss of roughly half of the hundreds of collections held by each department.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
They come in all kinds of sizes and shapes. Some are inactive and harmless, some emit poison for no reason, not to mention some biological types of Curios that can plan their own escape, which is a real headache.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
There is a Curio called the Xenohydro that has the ability to replicate the appearance of other people at will. This allows it to wreak havoc and confusion wherever it goes, as it can easily assume various false identities.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
The Curio Collection Squad is an emergency team I put together. The team's mission is to support post-disaster reconstruction and ensure that all of its needs are met during this difficult time.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
As the name suggests, it is mainly responsible for collecting the Curios that have been displaced due to the recent monster invasion.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Surely, you must have heard of Mrs. Hinkel's famous Declaration of Revival, right?
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
"Our fellow researchers were slaughtered by monsters. Their lifeless forms were cold and woeful..."
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Woeful...
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Alas, I can't recall the exact wording. After all, Mrs. Hinkel's style is unique and not easily imitable.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
*sigh* It's all because of that Xenohydro's trickery. This has been tormenting me to no end! That's why we had to have that conversation earlier.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
The squad has been searching for the Xenohydro for some time, but to no avail. A member of the squad named Abraham has even gone missing... It is true what they say โ€” when it rains, it pours.
Options
Missing? I can help with this.
Is it the Abraham I know?
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
That's great. I was just getting worried that I can't spare anyone to go find him.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Abraham is easy to identify. He is thin, wearing glasses, and always mumbling about "Life is but a path to death."
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
You don't even pay attention to how he looks. You can just take a moment to listen to the words being said. He somehow always manages to drop this line at least once every five sentences.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
According to the squad members, Abraham was last seen in the storage zone.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
*sigh* Even though Abraham can be quite the downer, which has been a real torture for his colleagues...
Options
Still we can't just leave him.
I can't stand him either.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
But we can't just leave him.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
Oh, you know him? He was recently transferred to this squad from Mrs. Hinkel's, always mumbling about...
Options
Life is but a path to death.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
That's right! He says this at least once out of every five sentences.
Wen Mingde

Right now, all squad members are busy searching for missing Curios. And I'll also have to handle the whole Xenohydro situation. So it's all up to you to find Abraham.
Wen Mingde
Wen Mingde
If you bring him back safely, the Department of Implement Arts will reward you quite handsomely.

Ask about how Abraham went missing

Abraham
Abraham
Hey, did you notice that one of the monsters you just defeated had a different body build? Even the joint on its left leg looked different from the others.
Abraham
Abraham
I'm pretty sure that's what... what killed Alfred!
Abraham
Abraham
I did it! I finally did it! I finally avenged Alfred!
Abraham
Abraham
I had to gather up so much courage to come do Mr. Wen's errands, and who knew it would turn out to be an avenging trip? Is this fate? *sniff*
Options
Running errands for Mr. Wen?
Mr. Wen said you were missing.
You almost died!
Abraham
Abraham
Yep, Mr. Wen asked me to go to the Curio Sorting Room in the Storage Zone to pick up an item for him.
Abraham
Abraham
This makes no sense... Look, he also gave me this executive order.
๐Ÿ“–
Notice of Ad Hoc Transfer
Abraham
Abraham
See? This is the executive order that Mr. Wen personally gave me. It's a notice of an Ad Hoc Transfer. All written in black and white, clear as day.
Options
So even boxers can be Curio?
Your name is Aburgerham?
You actually believe that!?
Abraham
Abraham
Are they not!? If it's just an ordinary pair of boxers, why would Mr. Wen ask me to pick them up?
Abraham
Abraham
Maybe Mr. Wen was so busy with his chores and stuff that he made an honest mistake.
Abraham
Abraham
Mr. Wen said I was missing? But he was the one who sent me here to fetch stuff for him.

The order was handed to me by Mr. Wen Mingde himself. It can't be a mistake.
Abraham
Abraham
I still remember that his pupils were dilated, head covered in sweat, hands cold, and even his throat made a faint gurgling sound.
Abraham
Abraham
He must've been really eager to get the Curio, so I have to get this done for him...
Options
This smells fishy!
Let's go back and check this with Mr. Wen.
Then go and fetch your thing.
Abraham
Abraham
Why are you so weird about this? You aren't freaked out by the monsters like I was before, are you?
Abraham
Abraham
I don't think this is a good idea. Mr. Wen Mingde personally gave me the task, and I can't just go back without completing it first...
Abraham
Abraham
Why the change? Weird... You aren't freaked out by the monsters like I was before?
Abraham
Abraham
Anyway, it's safe here. I'll go and get the Curio soon.
Abraham
Abraham
If you have any doubts, just take this transfer order. Go back and ask Mr. Wen Mingde about it...

Life is but a path to death... Besides, I'm still pretty alive now.

The way you care so much about me reminds me of Alfred... Now, my wish is finally fulfilled.

I know it's you. You've been pretending to be me, deceiving everyone with your shenanigans. And now you have the audacity to stand here in front of me.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Excuse me, but who are you calling a fake? I was standing right here the whole time. You're the one who just appeared out of nowhere. I have witnesses who can confirm that. So tell me, who do you think looks suspicious here? You or me?
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Now, everyone, the situation is clear as day. It's already well-known that Xenohydro has been on the loose for a long time. Xenohydro can change its form and mimic others' appearances so perfectly that it's virtually impossible to tell the difference...
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
But I never would have thought that this creature would be so bold, approaching us like this and trying to take my place.

Don't try to steal my words. You accused me of being fake, but do you have any proof to back up your claim?

I might have a way to solve this.

Retrieve the Boxer with Colored Tortoiseshell Pattern... You cheeky Xenohydro! How dare you use my identity to steal such a valuable Curio!
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Now that the evidence is all clear, it's time to end this. I suggest {NICKNAME} make the call.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
I agree. {NICKNAME}, what do you say?
Options
We should check the vital signs.
Check the signature.
We should check the boxers!
That's it for now.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
We've done that already. The team here has checked our pupils, sweat glands, voice, and body temperature.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
But perhaps the tension was simply too high to act normally. Our pupils were both dilated, we were both sweating profusely, our voices were trembling, and our bodies were cold to the touch.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Ugh! Wish I wasn't so worked up, otherwise we would've been able to tell by now.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Don't waste your time. The note signed "Wen Mingy" was obviously a blatant mockery of me by the Xenohydro.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
He can imitate my looks and personality really well, so I don't think that handwriting will be too difficult for him either.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
I noticed both of us are carrying the written orders for the team's daily attendance, which you can review at will.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip

Those boxers are a Curio and are not to be worn! Not to mention that they are not my personal property. What's there to check!
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
...
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
These boxers are clearly planted by the Xenohydro! I, Wen Mingde, the dignified leader of the Department of Implement Arts and head of the Curio Collection Squad, will not allow the Xenohydro to mock me like this!

{NICKNAME}, what do you think?

(Wait and see)

Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip

Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
What do you mean?
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
At this point, I must stop the Xenohydro from further harming the space station. To protect the whole team, I am willing to sacrifice my own freedom.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Don't act so holier-than-thou...
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
I also think that, if we're locked up long enough, the Xenohydro will get bored eventually and show its true colors.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out
I see. So you are just trying to drag me into the same miserable situation as you.
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Even if I get locked up in the containment chamber, I can still lead the Curio retrieval efforts.

I only wanted to tease you a bit. Never expected to catch so much attention.
Wen Mingde With Hands Spread out

Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
Don't be a sore loser.

Hee, hee hee, you made the right choice. Hurry up and lock up the fake on the opposite side, *gurgle*...

Wen Mingde With Hand on Hip
I'm not the Xenohydro! Wait a minute, did anyone hear him make that weird noise?

Don't waste your time, *gurgle*. Even {NICKNAME} says you're a fake, *gurgle*...

That's the watery, guttural sound unique to the Xenohydro!
