"No," Epimetheus agrees. "I expect it is not."

"I should figure out how to get back," she says uncertainly.

"We will see what we can do to help if that is what you wish," Epimetheus' tone is carefully neutral. "But you are welcome here."

Permalink

"I would not have suggested if I was not. There will likely be some logistics to work out, but we can sort that out."

Permalink

"I think I'd like that."

"Then we will make it happen," Epimetheus assures her. "Although you may rethink your decision when you meet my siblings. They can be... A bit much."

Permalink

"It's okay. I know how siblings are."

Epimetheus hums. "Well. You will meet them soon enough. For now, we need to go and debrief, for some reason our CO requires me to do this in person."

Permalink

"Oh, apologies. Commanding officer."

Epimetheus has picked Vanya up again - provided Vanya does not object to this - and started walking.

She doesn't object.

"What is your CO like?"

Epimetheus thinks about the answer for a moment. "She is a good woman, and she cares about those under her command, but she has a lot to consider, and can appear brusque."

Permalink

"She may have some questions for you, but she will not be too forceful, and if you do not wish to answer you are not required to."

They come to a building, which Vickers is just coming out of.

"She's ready for you, Epime," he says with a nod. "Said to send you right in."

"That was quick?"

"What can I say? Ms Vanya's more interesting than what I have to say."

He strides off, leaving Epimetheus and Vanya.

"Ready?" Epimetheus checks.

Epimetheus nods, and steps forward, tapping on the door, and pushing it open at exactly the same time as a woman's voice calls for them to enter.

"Ma'am," Epimetheus greets, not quite coming to attention in front of the desk.

Permalink

"Epimetheus," the woman behind the desk says, folding her hands in front of her. "And you must be Vanya Hargreeves?"

Permalink

"Vickers said Epimetheus found you in the woods, do you have any idea how you got there?"

Permalink

"A monster attacked me, ma'am."

Permalink

"...A monster? Epimetheus, you made no mention of such a beast?"
