"Oh! Before you leave..." Vicki started.

"If... if I do find Alice, or anything about her... how can I let you know?" She asked, her voice curious.

"Because, I swear. I will find her, or find records of her death, or something."

Taylor paused for a moment, thinking about that.

"Well, Jo knows where I usually hang out." he said.

"You can tell him and he'll tell me." he told her.

"Oh, and now that I know that it's... well, I know you're YOU, I will be volunteering to bring you meals more often. At the very least, I'll be bringing you breakfast." he then said further.

"So you'll see me at least once a day." he assured her.

"Vic insisted it be rotating, just in case people got uneasy around her, but I know a lot of people will gladly let me do it so they have more free time."

Vicki nodded.

"I appreciate it." She said simply before pausing.

"And I don't doubt that others would get uneasy with ... who I .. become, I suppose." She added.

"Anyway, I suppose I should get to studying all the notes in here." She added. "There's... a lot."

"...yeah, Vic kept a LOTTA notes." Taylor agreed.

"Hope they help." he said.

"Anyway, see you later." he finished, before leaving the room, and she heard his footsteps diminish as he walked away.

Once they were silent, she found herself alone once more, surrounded by the notes the previous her had made, in a world that was a living hell.

And she could HEAR unearthly and unnerving noises outside. They alone told her the horror this world was.

Vicki just sighed, heavily, before takinga seat somewhere that she could. She didn't pay much attention to where, but she sat and grabbed a notebook... and started reading. She hoped she'd find something actually useful for the information, but she realised that she'd likely not. There were low chances, she figured.

But even then, that was better than zero chances at all, right?

All she could do for the moment, was hunker down and try to find any tidbit of information that would help.

The best source of information, was her sister though. However, she didn't know where the woman was, or even if she was alive anymore.

After about 15 minutes of her searching and sifting through notes, Ash returned with some snacks and bottled beverages for her.

"Hey." he greeted her.

"Brought some supplies." he said, setting them down on a small table nearby.

"Everything all right?" he asked.

"Anyone bother you or anything?" he asked further.

"I know a few people that would throw insults and stabs at you." he growled, venom in his tone.

Vicki paused a moment, her brain catching up to the fact that Ash had returned.

"Huh? Oh. No." She answered.

"I tried to leave." She added. "Didn't expect to be literally thrown back."

"...ah, yes." Ash muttered.

"Should have warned you about that..." he mumbled. "Sorry." he apologised.

"Yeah, that was set up so... well... mostly for everyone else's piece of mind." he admitted.

"Still. Are you hurt?" he asked.

"I know that rebound can be nasty if you land somewhere bad." he reasoned.

"But I also know it's dependent on how hard or fast you try to exit." he then remembered.

"Well, it was a tentative step, so it wasn't too bad." Vicki answered honestly.

"I'm good." She added. "Don't like being trapped, but I understand it."

"Also... found out Taylor is still alive."

Ash paused for a moment, thinking about the person she mentioned... before snapping his fingers.

"Ah! Him!" he remembered.

"Yeah, he's a decent sort. Poor guy lost his parents and sister to those horrors out there." he lamented.

"Watched it happen, too." he told her further.

"He still tries to keep his spirits high, though." he then went on, setting out what he'd gotten her and organising it.

"I assume he stopped by earlier?" he asked.

"He did." Vicki confirmed with a nod.

"And all but admitted that he wants my sister. But I already knew that, I think I'm the only person who ever did... well... back when I know." She added.

"So, since no one knows if my sister is alive or dead, I'm going to try and use the Fyrane connection I have, being her twin, to find her." She didn't even seem to register that he'd brought food or whatever. She wasn't hungry, and if she had noticed, she'd probably chalk it up to the fact that she was thrust into this world unexpectedly. However, if she really sat and thought about it, it wouldn't be hard for her to realise that it was likely due to what was happening to the body, as well.

Ash just sighed.

"All right." he said.

"You can try." he told her. "Maybe you'll succeed, maybe not." he mumbled.

"And I don't know what to say about him wanting Alice." he then admitted. "I didn't know that was a thing, but... well, you're more perceptive about that kinda stuff than I am." he went on.

"A shame." he said further.

"I get the sense that he and Alice would have made a cute couple." he chuckled.

"Whenever I get my ass home, I'm dragging HIS ass to Alice's bedroom door and shoving him through. Obviously he keeps it quiet for centuries. I ain't letting that stand." Vicki told her brother simply, plainly.

"Because I know Alice has a crush on him too. She's just been too hesitant to do anything because since she got control of her empathy, she hasn't gotten a feel for the fact that he wants her." She added.

"So I'll get 'em together."

"...." Ash was silent as he heard all that.

"Right..." he said.

"That's... that's almost romantic comedy material." he told her.

"But... right, anyway." he then said.

"If you feel like eating, I brought snacks and drinks." he said further.

"Feel free to have whenever you want."

Vicki paused a moment, blinking before looking to what he'd brought.

"I... didn't even realise you brought anything." She told him.

"Anyway, What's the last you heard of our sister?" She asked.

"I get the feeling her or Kiah would be the best source of information. Maybe Lindsay, but doubtful. "

Ash just shrugged.

"Last I heard, she went into hiding." he told her.

"Or... well, she said she didn't want to cause any more pain and agony and grief." he went on.

"Said she didn't need to be overwhelmed by it all." he continued.

"And Lindsay... well... um..." he stammered, biting his lip.

"Lindsay's not an option." he admitted.

"He's... we're pretty sure he's gone."

"You've hit demi-god levels?" Vicki asked, point blank.

"Because we suspected that was what would happen when, or if, Lindsay ever died." She added.

"As for Alice... Any idea where?" She asked. "I know you said into hiding, but if I could get even a region or whatever, to possibly try and find her..... I don't know how it could help, but... maybe I'm just hopeful."

He just sighed again.

"I have not." he said.

"...but for all we know, those abominations out there absorbed the mana before it could come to me." he told her. "We know nothing about it. We just know he stayed behind to fend off a horde of those things to help us escape." he went on. "...we haven't seen or heard from him since." he lamented.

"And I don't know where Alice is. Or Kiah." he stressed.

"Kiah just disappeared." he shrugged.

"However, I recall Alice was saying something about wanting to study mana more closely. But... I don't know what she meant by that."

Vicki was silent for a moment.

".... well.... Lindsay's regeneration was both mana and not. So it is actually possible he's still out there, somewhere." She then said. "What about Zeria?" Her voice was curious as she asked her question, curious, and a bit concerned. Depending on what would say, would help either drive home that this world was absolute shit, or lift her spirits a bit.

"She's a scout for us." Ash answered. "I ... don't think she's in the building at the moment though."

"As long as she's still alive. With that in mind though.... Lindsay has a better chance."

"...hadn't thought about that." Ash admitted.

"True. Greater chance he IS alive." he agreed.

"So yeah, decent chance he's still out there." he said, his spirits a little higher.

"When Zeria gets back from wherever she went off to, I'll let her know you're here." he then said further.

"Let her know what I had to do... and had to bring you here..."
