"... what about the nexus here at the council?" Vicki asked after a few seconds. She really didn't want to linger on THAT bit of information. It wasn't good, and she wasn't surprised at what she was told, at all.

"I want to guess that it's helping to power this place, but ... am I right? Is it doing more? Less? Like... what's the deal with that?" She asked.

"If... if you know, that is."

"The nexus is still here." Ash assured her.

"It's... well, yeah. It's here." he said.

"Again, just... WAY down." he mumbled. "Not many people know of it still." he warned.

"Most people think it's a special generator down there, but... it's the nexus." he said.

"And it's diminished. Considerably." he then said further.

"But it's still going. Shows no signs of giving up just yet."

"Good." Vicki said with a light sigh.

"Just... good." She added. "That's a relief. It naturally would protect itself as well, against the mana sucking creatures out there." She added after a few seconds.

"However, what I want to know, is if the pathways down there are still open, and if there is any way that I can get down there." She added.

".... I don't know if it would do any good, but... maybe? I know Aunt Hollie would go there when she was hitting a wall. The abundance of mana helped clear her mind."

"...I think so?" Ash responded, a bit unsure.

"I know a lot of access has been blocked off, but I don't think it's been filled in or destroyed." he told her.

"And is there any way YOU can get down there?" he asked.

"Uh... maybe..." he mumbled.

"People are STILL leery about you." he warned her. "However, I've heard a lot more people realising that you're not... well, you're not as bad as Vic was, so there IS talk of letting you have more free reign." he admitted.

"I'll see if I can't speed that along." he told her further.

"But just make sure nobody sees you disappear into a pathway to the nexus."

"I'd make sure to do it in the dead of night, when no one CAN see me." Vicki assured him.

"Beyond that, I will also make sure I'm not alone, if only just because of the fact that I realise people would prefer I wasn't wandering around alone. I do still get some side eyes and leers." She added.

"I also don't need access righ taway." She told him. "Just... in time. It might help."

Ash nodded.

"Right." he said.

"...when we're both out and about, I'll show you the door." he then told her.

"It's... sealed with mana, but it comes off as just being jammed to the point of being unopenable." he explained.

"Also, people think it led to an old janitorial closet, so... yeah, people leave it alone." he shrugged.

"Like I said, I'll see what I can do." he reasoned.

"Maybe, hopefully, it can help you."

Vicki nodded.

"Yeah. Thanks." She said simply.

"Just... thanks. I don't think there's much more that can be said here." She admitted.

"Sorry to keep you."

Ash shook his head.

"Don't apologise." he said.

"I've... I've been needing to say that for a while." he told her.

"...not everybody knows that. And if they were to, then they would probably lose ALL hope." he said, when she looked confused.

"Keeping that a secret was eating away at me." he sighed.

"I think it was good to just... get it out."

Vivki just chuckled lightly.

"I'm the same girl you used as your unofficial therapist." She reminded him.

"You put me through school for it, secretly, afterall. Just so I could help you and Alice." She added. "You can always dump whatever you need to on me. You know that." She paused slightly, looking out the window.

"... and it was good to hear that. It wasn't good information, but... I think I'm getting a better understanding of the world now."

"Right." Ash responded.

"And for the record, Vincent has decreed that anyone associated with Heaven cannot help this world in their capacity of Heaven." he told her. "I'm part of the Harmony, yes, but I am acting as a Fyrane, NOT as a Harmony member." he said further, a little venom in his tone.

"And Sydney has essentially done the same, but more for the protection of her demons, and so that the monsters up here don't gain any infernal mana." he informed her further.

"Which means Azazel and Cain are confined to... Hell." he said.

"Lilim is not, as she was essentially cast out of Hell so long ago, and that was not reversed. She acts as a scout for us." he finished, figuring she'd like to know THAT info, too.

Vicki paused a moment.

"Cain's inclusion there is odd, I admit." She commented.

":I know he's half demon, but ..I dunno. You'd think the not-demon part of him would make that tricky." She added.

"But, definitely good to know on Lilim's front. I don't know if it'll actually matter while I'm here, but it is good to know regardless."

"Normally he wouldn't be down there, but... well, he's half-undead. And they're pretty much immune to Hell. Well... their soul is resistant to it, and his soul status is..." he went on, but paused suddenly.

"That'll give me a headache." he growled.

"Suffice to say, he's down there." he said.

"And so is Anya. Forgot to mention her." he added, before pausing again.

"...also, I just realised you asked about the djinns a bit ago, and I never answered." he realised, smacking his forehead.

"As far as I know, they're out in the wasteland, acting as beacons for those monsters, constantly leading them away from civilisation. Keeping people safe." he answered her finally.

"Now, that may have changed recently. But that was the last I heard of it."

"Do they ever stop by here?" Vicki asked, regarding the djinns, her voice curious.

"And has anyone thought to make a wish...?" She then asked, realising that it was something likely already covered. However, if it was, maybe she would wish for some actual information, some sold information, instead of this speculation she had currently.

"And yes, I realise that it's likely something that has already been done."

Ash just sighed.

"I've thought of it." he said.

"...if we can ever find them." he told her.

"They don't stop by here for fear of bringing immense hordes to this place." he explained.

"Believe me, a wish would be fabulous." he continued.

"But... really... as it stands, doesn't seem to be an option." he lamented, shaking his head.

"If they ever DO come by here, then maybe?"

Vicki was silent for a moment before sighing, heavily.

"That... makes sense." She commented.

"They really would be beacons... since they're beings of pure mana." She added after a moment or two.

"Anyway. I... should probably get back to reading through all these notes. There is way more than I expected, like holy hell."

Ash nodded.

"Yeah, as I said, Vic was... a heavy note-taker." he said to her.

"You can probably ignore THAT pile, though." he then told her, gesturing to one in the corner. "That's full of theories and such that never went anywhere and were obvious duds." he lamented.

"I mean, if you want to, go ahead. But... don't expect to find anything." he reasoned.

"Anyway, I'm going to check the roof again." he told her.

"Good luck. I'll be back later to help with anything you might need."

Vicki nodded.

"I'll keep that in mind." She told him.

"However, I'll probably work my way through it over time. This isn't going to be quick, at all." She added with a bit of a sigh.

"get going. Let me research what's here." She added. "Thanks."

"Fair." Ash responded.

"Yeah, there's... it's... a lot." he said.

"Regardless, see you later." he told her.

"I'll be on the roof, so if you need me for anything, just shout my name out the window." he said further.

"I'll hear you and make my way down." he went on, before pausing.

"Or... or just call." he muttered.

"Vic has a short-range communications device in here. I have one, too." he remembered.

Vicki nodded.

"Yeah. All right. I'll keep that in mind." She commented.

"Definitely good to know." She added before looking around.

"What's it look like, anyway? Because I haven't come across anything like that, so far. At least I don't think I have"

Ash paused and raised an eyebrow... before smacking his forehead.

"Of course you wouldn't know where it is." he said.

"Memories. Vic's. Not yours." he recalled.

"Hang on." he told her, making his way to a smaller desk in the corner and digging through it. He then pulled out what she could only describe as an early 1990's cellular phone. It would fit in her pocket... and that would be all that would fit in said pocket.

"Here it is." he told her.

"It works... at about a mile radius." he recalled.

"They're mostly just over-complicated walkie-talkies for communication within this base."
