"None such present at the site, ma'am."

"I see. Could you describe it Miss Hargreeves?"

Permalink

"I didn't tell her about it because I thought I was dreaming. It looked like a mirror with a snake's tail."

Permalink

"I rather expect most of us would believe we were dreaming if confronted with such. Do you wish to return home?"

Permalink

"I will take her," Epimetheus says before the base commander can say anything else.

Permalink

"And I expect that Epimetheus has already checked that you are amenable to that, Ms Hargreeves?"

Permalink

"Alright then. I suppose having another child around the base will be good for some of the older hands. I'll have someone put together the appropriate paperwork."

Permalink

She doesn't ever have to go back!

"Thank you, ma'am."

Permalink

"Alright then. Dismissed."

Permalink

Epimetheus salutes smartly, heels tapping together, and then turns sharply and leaves the office.

"I will take you back to our house? You can either rest, or meet the rest of the family, depending on whether they are around?"

Permalink

"Are they as nice as you are?"

Permalink

"I think most people would say that they were nicer."

Permalink

"Then I want to meet them."

Permalink

"Then we'll do that."

Epimetheus takes them into the residential area of the base, and to a house, that doesn't look all that different to the others around it.

Except there's a teenager on the drive, throwing a basketball into the hoop attached above the garage door.

It takes him a moment, and then he notices Epimetheus. "Epime! Hey, sis! How'd it go? -Wait, who's this?" He doesn't really give Epime or Vanya a chance to answer, barrelling on. "I'm Theo, Epime's younger- well. Technically youngest brother."

Permalink

"If we're being technical," Epimetheus corrects with a faint smile, "'Metheus is the youngest. AGI minds just develop quicker."

Permalink

"Details, details," Theo brushes off, bouncing on the spot. "Nice to meet you, Vanya! Are you staying with us?"

Permalink

She looks to Epimetheus for confirmation.

Permalink

Epimetheus smiles and nods. "Yes, she is staying with us."

Permalink

Theo grins happily. "Yay! Little sister! C'mon, I'll show you the house!"

He holds out his hand.
