1
Maxine, Jody and you are running to investigate a mysterious fair, the denizens of which are said to be invisible to zombies. The flyer was pushed through the gates of Abel, which Sam considers very suspicious...
2
Jody realises she knows Martin, the lion tamer in the flyer. He was a property developer, and she was sent by her finance company to take a look at his "biotecture" development.
3
In the past, Martin had shown Jody around the development, and she had found the place a hazard, with walls crumbling and windows exploding. He told her it was built on a place called "Galdr", which ancient peoples worshipped. It's why development went so quickly, but Jody thinks they must have cut corners as it was very unsafe!
4
Martin showed Jody the meditation glade, which including a water feature of a sabre-tooth tiger, because rumour has it they used to roam that part of Britain. There was a loud crack, and Jody realised the tiger's mouth had opened wider, just as a storm started, but Martin tried to pretend nothing was happening.
5
Martin took Jody to a showhome, which they had built in the design of the burial chamber they built it ontop of. But as loud thuds began, Jody realised the corridors had changed, and she didn't know the way out. Martin, suddenly terrified, ran away, leaving her lost as the floor came apart.
6
Jody found a door to the cellar, and heard Martin crying at the bottom. As she entered, the door slammed behind her, and the lightbulb popped, drenching them in darkness. She went down the stairs, and Martin told her to be quiet, or "they'll find us." Martin revealed that the tiger was real, and it was coming for him, so they needed to find the back entrance quickly to escape!

Jody found a door to the cellar, and heard Martin crying at the bottom. As she entered, the door slammed behind her, and pipes began to burst, pouring water into the room. The cellar filled up to Jody's shoulders. Martin was convinced the tiger was real, and coming for him. She convinced him to get it together so they could find the trapdoor out of the cellar...

Jody found a door to the cellar, and heard Martin crying at the bottom. As she entered, the door slammed behind her and Jody realised there were rats coming out of the walls. The rats started coming towards them, and Martin thought they were also trying to escape the tiger -- which he thought was real and coming for him. But there was a trapdoor out of the cellar, if only they could find it!
9
Jody found the trapdoor, but it slammed behind her, leaving Martin in the cellar. Eventually his banging stopped, and she never saw Martin again. As she finishes recounting the story, Maxine spots a Ferris wheel. There's still a bog and field to get through, but you're all nearly at the Fairground now!
