What you know so far
It was rare for the famous journalist and university professor Alejandro Altarriba to miss his classes.
It was even stranger for him to skip his 5pm ballet class, and forget his tutu in his locker.
But it was somewhat unheard of that Don Alejandro didn’t show up at the meeting of the university newspaper to decide whether to stop using the term “more better” and use “much better”, because, of course, it sounds more better.
You and your team arrive at Alejandro’s office, but no one is there, everything is in disarray, there is no trace of the professor. He’s not answering at home, on his mobile, on Tinder or TikTok… strange, strange thing.
He’s left you a note, which, seeing that it’s not election propaganda or an electricity bill, you decide to open in case it contains a cheque to the bearer.
Inside, a handwritten note reads:
“I need my best journalism students to help me with this… but they are all busy and that’s why I called you.
You must go to a house hidden in a small basement, at Calle Luis Vives 6, in Madrid. It’s not a palace, but it’s not a dive either… like the one you go to for drinks on weekends, there, pim pam trucu trucu trucu. The door has a subtle shade of “punchy purple” (you can see that the owner wants to go unnoticed). Bruno, the butler, will be your contact there, or Sinforosa, the cook, I hope it will be one of them who will attend to you.
Things are happening in the house that can’t be explained, well, they can, but if I tell you, I’m making you a spoiler…
Sincerely yours: Alejandro Altarriba”
Without thinking for a minute, you set off in the direction indicated, because as in the best mystery films, calling the police is silly.
Who knows what you’ll find when you get there…! Mystery? Treason? …or an escape room?
