Can it be.. undone?

Ilias was on his way out while she was saying this, before freezing at the end.

"I... what?" he asked.

"Your...?" he started to ask further, before raising an eyebrow.

"I see..." he said.

"Is this... unwanted, or burdensome?" he asked her.

"Should something be done about this?"

"Eh? Nahh. I just smack him when he gets a bit handsy at home." Alicja answered with a light shrug, and wince.

"He tends to be pretty good with keeping his hands off me while at work, which is definitely good." She continued.

"And when he does get a bit too handsy, I just add a bunch of citric acid to his food and he stops for a bit."

She now saw a bit of a horrified look in Ilias' eyes.

"Excuse me?" he asked.

"This... this does not sound like appropriate behaviour." he told her.

"This definitely sounds like something that should be reported." he added sternly.

It seemed like he'd missed the 'at home' part, which would cause him to make the natural inference... however, it seemed like he honestly was starting to think that Nate was... well... harassing her.

Alicja looked outright confused.

"I.... what?" She asked after a moment.

"Why would I report it?" She asked.

"Don't you and Kiah have a similar relationship?"

"Well... I mean, yes, but-" Ilias started to respond, but then stopped.

And thought.

And the gears started to slowly turn and grind... until the gerbil in the wheel was running full tilt.

"Wait." he said.

"Are... you saying that Nate and yourself are... together?" he asked her.

"In an official capacity?" he asked further.

Alicja nodded.

"Yeah. We are. Which is why when he's here, I'm here. We managed to have Angela agree to have us work at the same time, for transportation purposes. We only have one car betwen the two of us." She told him with a light chuckle.

"I... admit, I'm surprised there's anyone who doesn't know. We're not exactly private about it."

Ilias just sighed.

"I... I'm one of those 'out of the loop' people." he admitted.

"I mean... really?" he went on, before pausing and looking around.

"...admittedly, I found out about Jake and Anya last month." he told her.

"Yes. Last month. It was news to me, then." he revealed.

"So... forgive me for... well, it's unintentional, but I'm kinda like a mushroom. Kept in the dark, but I do it to myself." he muttered further.

"Perhaps I should socialise outside of the lab more..."

Alicja just shrugged.

"All good." She commented.

"Anyway, might be worthwhile to let Nat know I'm up again. And yes, the headache is better. Still there, still ow, but not as bad."

"Got it." Ilias responded.

He then opened the door and turned, only to stop abruptly.

"...be warned, she has a headache." was all he said.

Then, after he left, Nate (expectedly) poked his head in and started making his way to Alicja.

Meanwhile, Ilias made his way to the closed door to Angela's office, and knocked on it.

"Dr. Edwards?" he called in.

"It's Ilias." he said.

"Hey there Nate." She greeted.

angela sighed lightly before making her way over to the door and opening it.

"Yes?" She asked as she stepped out of the way for him to enter if he so desired.

Ilias entered and Angela shut the door. The two then made their way to her desk, with him sitting in front and her sitting behind, before clearing his throat.

"Dr. Edwards, I will skip all the formalities and get to the point." he told her.

He reached into his pocket and pulled out the container of serum he had, handing it over towards her.

"See that?" he asked, as she accepted it.

"We used that on Alicja, with her consent, and it brought Ebony back." he told her.

"So this can be used to bring back everyone else afflicted with this soul separation nonsense." he finished.

Angela was silent for a moment before letting out a breath of relief.

"well, if nothing else, that is definitely good." She commented after a few seconds.

"What's the dosage?" She asked after a moment. When Ilias answered, she nodded before getting to her feet.

"I'll make sure this is handled. Along with that, I'll make sure alicja is all right, as well." She was silent here, not sure what to say, before just sighing, heavily.

"Thank you, Ilias. We needed this."

Ilias nodded in response.

"You're welcome." he responded.

"Alicja woke up with a borderline migraine, after about half an hour of being passed out." he told her.

"During that time, and for about 7 minutes prior, she was in significant physical distress." he warned. "However, that should merely be because reuniting a soul with a body is... well, I'm sure it's traumatic." he mumbled.

"Regardless, it should be normal for the patient to exhibit signs of great pain."

Angela was silent as Ilias said all he did, making notes.

"Duly noted." She commented, and he could hear the relief in her voice.

".... Are you doing all right?" She asked after a moment or two. "I know this can't have been easy to find."

"...I'm fine." Ilias responded.

"Robyn and I were banging our heads against the wall, so to speak for the longest while." he told her. "...and then we got some serious help." he went on.

"And it's FAR too complicated to explain right now." he added with a heavy sigh.

"Just know we got some help, and it was... needed. Very much so." he said further.

"Regardless, you can start administering the serum, and let us know when you run out." he went on.

"...or, rather, we should have more already made in the lab, so I'll go and bring the rest here." he changed his statement.

Angela nodded.

"I'll keepo that in mind."[/] She said.

[b]"Thank you. So much."
She then said with a light sigh, that one breath filled with relief.

"I'm going to get to work with this on the few that remain. You? Go do what you need to. Thank you again."

Ilias nodded in response.

"Of course." he said.

He then excused himself, left, and made his way back to the lab. When he arrived, Robyn and Chloe were still there.

"Worked like a charm." he told them, but more specifically, Robyn.

"Ebony is back, and the med wing's gonna need more serum." he continued.

"So someone's gonna need to run it there, whether it be me, or someone else."

Chloe merely nodded.

"Of course." She said simply as she finished making sure that the serum was properly contained.

"I will run this up now. Unless you need me here?" She asked.

---

She was silent as she stepped into the house, to find it empty.

"Huh..." She muttered, looking around. With a yawn, she just kicked her shoes off, dropped her back off on the couch, and headed up to her bedroom. She entirely intended to die for a few hours, as she felt like she hadn't slept in weeks, which she thought was odd since she'd been working with an Order Member.

"May as well make yourself known to the medical wing." Nate shrugged.

"...try not to make people's headaches worse." he then muttered.

As she made her way to her bedroom, not only did she notice that the house was empty... it seemed like it hadn't been lived in for... months. Literally.

Everything was as she remembered it, down to minute details. Including the fact that her father's bedroom looks as it had last time.

For all intents and purposes, it was like she had never been gone.

...except for a noticeable layer of dust covering everything.

"The hell...?" She wondered before pulling her phone out of her pocket and tring to unlock it... only to find that the device was dead. With a sigh, she made her way to her room and plugged it inbto the wall before heading out to find the cordless phone. Which she found, but it was in her dad's room.

She grabbed it and sat on his bed before calling him, wondering where he was, and how long it'd been since he'd been home. The place was actually pretty hot now that she thought of it, as if no one turned on the AC or orpened a window in ages.

"Hey, Dad." She greeted when he'd answered
