Plot Edit

Some time after the mysterious disapperance of Todd and Travis, Jon is discussing where he is going to meet somebody on the phone, informing his acquaintance that he can't drive anywhere because he has lost his wallet which has his driving licence in it. They arrange a nearby meeting area before he leaves his apartment.

With Jon gone, the toys are able to move again. Cortana offers Arbiter a coffee. Master Chief asks Cortana for a sandwhich, but Cortana refuses to make him one. Annoyed, Chief responds by throwing a bottle at Cortana, and misses. Chief then takes out Jon's wallet, which Arbiter and Cortana notice, and demand that he put it back where it was.

The next morning, Chief returns to the apartment, having previously left to collect change. When Chief notices that nobody gave him any change, he is upset greatly, revealing to Arbiter that he just wants to be able to afford Cold Storage, a Halo 3 map. He is quickly cheered up when Arbiter tells him that the map is free. They download the map and begin a game on it. Chief wonders why Bungie made the map free believing he would just ask for money if he was them. Arbiter believes that Bungie probably wanted the fans to enjoy a new map for memories than just force them to pay a few bucks for new content everytime.

The next morning, Chief turns on the Xbox 360 and starts playing Halo 3. He notices that Cold Storage has been deleted from the hard disk of Jon's Xbox 360. Initially, he blames Arbiter, and when Arbiter denies involvement, blames Cortana. However, Arbiter denies this too, commenting that something very strange is going on after both the disappearance of Todd and Travis and now this.
