"I admit, if you were trying to entice me into doing it with your 'challenge' comment earlier... it worked." he admitted.

"Granted, I would have probably accepted anyway, but... well, you've convinced me." he chuckled.

"By the way, feel free to keep everything in the bag." he told her.

"Consider it a little gift from Egypt." he laughed.

"There anything else we need to discuss?" he asked.

"If not, I might just head back home and lay down in bed with Nakia."

"Gifts from Egypt? You know I won't say no." lunet commented.

"And no, nothing else coming to mind. I'll mesage you if anything else, and you can reply whenever you see it." She continued.

"Go rest with Nakia. You don't need to hang around here."

Leo just smiled and nodded.

"All right." he replied.

He then leaned in close and gave her a one-armed hug from the side, before pulling away and gently emptying the cloth bag. And Lunet saw what was there. All drinks she liked, all sweets she liked, and all kinds of snacks.

"Anyway, gimme a call, text, or email when you know more." he told her.

"Enjoy the food." he chuckled.

Lunet just beamed.

"You know I will." She assured him.

"Go spend some time with Nakia, even if just by snuggling up with her in bed." She added.

"I'll contact you when I have any information."

Leo gave her a small wave, as sand swirled around him, and caused him to disappear before her eyes.

Once again, she was alone in the house.

However, she now had tasty snacks and drinks to consume.

And she knew for a fact that Leo was with her in this venture.

She just now needed a place to find to do the work in.

It took her about half a week to find a place. When she called Leo, and they checked it out, they found it was perfect.

After they'd managed to rent it (admittedly a six month lease) they got to work, hoping to finish it within that six months.

Lunet was often out late, and had Cain agree to say that she was with him if Hal was ever asking.

Sometime arounda month later, Erica made her way to Hal's office and waited as per the receptionists order. Once she was beckoned in, she made her way in with a sigh.

"I thought you'd like to know that interrogation is having some serious tech issues, and the IT deparmtnet isn't answering." She said after closing the door. She didn't think she'd ben there too long, but knew he tended to prefer the door closed for privacy reasons.

"..." Hal was silent for a moment, before cursing to himself.

"Damn it all." he said.

He then checked something on his computer, and his eyes widened.

"...where...?" he muttered.

"I... some of this files are corrupted to the point of being junk." he said.

"Agent Windsor... I think a virus finally got through."

Erica was silent.

"I suspected as much." She commented.

"The files I have for the current case I'm working on are gone." She added.

"Damn it." Hal cursed again.

"What the HELL is I.T. doing!?" he exclaimed.

"All right, we're going to have to take everything offline. We've been compromised." he told her, standing up.

"I have no idea what this is, but we need to expect the worst." he said further.

"For all we know, our existence is being leaked online at the very moment."

"If I can help at any point, let me know, hey?" Erica said.

"Because... this can't get out, and I know that." She added.

"Anyway... I'll lkeave you to what you need to do. I'm going to and make sure that I still have paper files of this."

"You do that." Hal responded.

When she left, he looked at his phone, and his computer, before leaving his office and marching down to the IT department, practically busting the door down.

"What's going on to stop this virus!?" he exclaimed.

"I need answers. NOW!" he demanded.

If nothing else, he would need to shut everything down in the next 10 seconds if he didn't receive an answer.

He was met with silence before someone approached him, looking panicked and frantic.

"We don't know." She answered simply, honestly.

"Neither of us have any sort of idea what happened, or even when it got in here." She continued, sounding ready to panic.

"Our security has been compromised!" Hal responded.

"And if nobody here can do anything to stop this, we're initiating 'Operation Blackout'!" he declared.

"If you have an alternate solution, tell me NOW." he told her.

"And I mean in the next 10 seconds." he stressed.

"If I hear none, initiate Operation Blackout!"

The one that had approached him before sighing.

"... We... .we can try." She said after a moment or two.

"What do you mean by 'try'?" Hal asked, sounding notably unimpressed

".... We've tried rebooting the systems... but we can't even power down. It seems to be of a supernatural variety." She told him honestly.

"When Jared went to do a hard shut down... he was shocked - and we don't know if he will survive."

Hal responded by slamming his fist into the closest wall.

"Damn it!" he cursed.

"Then overload it!" he told them.

"Shut down the main power!" he said.

"Losing all the data is preferable to it being leaked!" he reasoned.

"...or are you saying Jared tried to unplug it, and was shocked?" he then asked, sounding a bit worried now.

She just nodded.

"... Hard shut down involves unplugging it." She told him honestly.

"He was taken to the med wing, and I think Brooklyn is down there with him at the moment." She paused a moment. "More specifically, she's the one that carried him down there, and hasn't returned."

"Well, keep trying!" Hal responded.

"...but don't endanger yourselves." he added.

He then turned and hastily made his way down to the medical wing, to see if things were all right there.

However, one thing kept poking at his mind.

Was this it?

Was this the end of the Unit?

What about the safety of all that were there? Where would they go? Would they be hunted?

Were their identities being leaked?

When Hal reached the location in question, he found it eerily silent in there. At first, at least.

Until he heard a muffled, suppressed, cry from the left, followed by a door closing, and a heavy sigh.

He saw the blonde woman he knew was a stellar medic, making her way to a washing station, and removing the protective gear as she walked. She hadn't noticed him.

"..." he was silent for a moment, before approaching her.

"Angela." he addressed her.

"What's going on?" he asked.

"If everything all right?" he asked further.

He was almost afraid to learn the answer, but he had to know.

He needed to know what was happening here.

Angela just sighed before shaking her head.

"No." She answered honestly as she dumped the protective gear where it was meant to be.

"... Sadly, I can't save someone." She said, not knowing that he knew who was there, and that was why he'd come out.

"I mean, he's still alive for the moment, but the damage is extreme. From what I know, that plug shouldn't even have that much of a current running through it."
