She was silent as she stepped up to the front desk.

"Hey." She greeted the one there.

"want to let me through? I'm here to see the BossMan." She then said, her voice curious, but also knowing that he could ask her questions. More questions than she rightly wanted to answer at the moment.

Granted, that was largely because she wasn't entirely sure how to word any of it, anyway.

Can it be.. undone?

The one behind the desk raised an eyebrow, before darting his serpentine tongue out a few times in rapid succession.

"...all righty then." he said.

"Dunno what this is about, but at this point, considering who you are, if I don't know, it's none of my business." he reasoned.

"You're trustworthy. That's enough." he went on.

"Need an escort to get there?" he asked.

"I think I'm good." the woman replied. The male just nodded and pressed a button, causing a small buzzing sound to echo through the area, and a distinct 'click' to be heard as well.

"In ya go."

"Thanks, Jake." She said.

"I'll see you on my way out, most likely." With that, she headed off. As she reached the door though, she paused and looked back.

"Thanks for not asking questions." She said before vanishing through the doro to the hall.

After a bit of walking, she arrived where she wanted to be, the office of the one in charge. After waiting for a little bit, she was beckoned to enter, to which she did.

"Hey, Sharp." she said, walking in and closing the door.

"I have a couple of things to talk to you about, and yes they are all pertaining to Jenkins."

Sharp raised an eyebrow when Kalin said what she did.

"Oh?" he asked.

"Very well." he said.

"Ask away." he told her.

"I do hope he's not causing any trouble." he then said further.

"...though I suppose I would have heard if he was." he added at the end.

Kalin shook her head.

"Don'tw orry, there aren't any issues or trouble." She commented after a moment or two.

"I've invited Lindsay to come with me... he fell behind due to needing a drink, so he stopped at the store a block or so away from here." She then said.

"Once he arrives, we can sort out him getting involved with Chris."

"Lindsay?" Hal asked.

"Ah, Dr. Fyrane." he remembered, snapping his fingers.

It was at that point, there was a buzz from his receptionist.

"Agent Sharp, there's a Dr. Fyrane here to see you." she said.

"Send him in." Hal replied.

With that, the door opened and Lindsay stepped inside.

"My apologies about the delay." he said.

"Do not worry about it." Hal replied. "Have a seat." he said, to which Lindsay promptly did.

"Now... what's this all about?" Lindsay asked, causing Hal to look at Kalin curiously, with a cocked eyebrow.

Kalin was silent before sighing lightly.

"I brought this up with you before, Sharp." She started before looking toward Lindsay

"I want you to take someone here on as a patient." She continued "Although, I know you will have initial and probably immediate misgivings."

"There is one caveat though... every meeting has to be when my sister is not home."

"......" Lindsay was silent for a moment, before sighing heavily.

"Such warnings." he said.

"But you know my vow." he told her.

"I will do my best to help anyone that needs it, and is willing to let me help them." he said further.

"....hm." Hal responded.

"Very noble." he commented.

"I know, and I'm sorry to be putting you into this position." Kalin said with a light sigh

"The man in question is Christopher Jenkins." She continued, not hesitation to her voice as she sounded much like she was delivering information to a client. She knew that she couldn't be too emotional here, mostly because she'd be one who would likely surprise Lindsay.

"Which... is why I said that casey can't be home whenever, if ever, He's there.

"She will not take it well. AT all."

Hal didn't know Lindsay that well, but Kalin did.

And instantly, beneath the calm and professional exterior that Lindsay was showing, she saw a typhoon of conflicting emotions happen in his eyes, over the span of a silent 5 seconds.

"...I see." Lindsay replied.

"You are correct. Casey will NOT take this well in the slightest." he agreed.

"However... does he really want my help?" he asked.

"He wants help. If it comes from you, it would really benefit him, I believe." Hal responded.

"Very well." Lindsay said, looking at Kalin next.

"And you trust Christopher?" he asked her.

Kalin just sighed.

"I don't know if it's because of the fact that he used his mana on me, butyes." She told him.

"I'm not going to say I trust him implicitly, but I do trust him enough to say that once he gets the clear from both of you, I'm willing to let him stay with me for a bit until he gets his feet on the ground, properly." She added.

"Jenkins might be able to use mana on Miss Calder, but NOT on me." Hal then interjected.

"And I trust him as well. Not implicitly, much like Miss Calder, but I can tell he wants to move on. He wants to discover who he could have been, had he not been controlled his whole life." he told Lindsay.

"...." Lindsay was silent, before nodding.

"Very well." he said.

"I have my misgivings, but if Christopher is truly as much a victim as we are... then I will do all I can to help him."

"Thank you, Lindsay." Kalin said before sighing.

"Just... be careful with Casey. We both know that she will not take it well." She then said. "But! Beyond that, should we talk with him first? Or make an appointment and just make sure he's present fo rit? or what?" she paused a moment.

"Admittedly, I'm not sure what the best way to go about this is." She added.

Lindsay shook his head.

"That depends on what you two think." he responded.

"I can make an appointment for him, and if he wants help, then I will help." he told them.

"No good comes from forcing a person to better themselves. At least, not mentally and emotionally." he continued.

"...fair point." Hal replied.

"But if he truly wishes to better himself and move on, he'll do it. This will be another test for him, in a sense." he reasoned.

Kalin just sighed lightly, debating what it was that she thought might be best.

It took about five minutes before she met Lindsay's gaze.

"Silence." She said simply.

"I mean... don't tell him who he's going to meet." She looked to Hal.

"Lindsay knows this, but I doubt he'd.... be interested in going to where the Fyrane boys are." she informed the Djinn

Hal nodded.

"I understand." he replied.

"We ask him if he is truly ready and willing to move on, he answers in the affirmative, we give him the details for where and when the appointment is... except for the name of the doctor, and the name of the place." he said.

"Indeed." Lindsay agreed.

"One second while I pull up my schedule, and Casey's, to find that sweet spot of a date for the appointment." he added, taking his cell phone out of his pocket.

-Some time later-

Chris nervously approached the door to the manor that loomed over him, his mouth feeling dry suddenly.

"......" he was silent, before nervously raising his hand, forming a light fist.

'...now or never, Chris. Show them you can commit to something. Show them you want to improve.' he thought. '...get your life together, Chris. Find out WHO YOU ARE!' he then mentally shouted.

With that, he knocked on the door as loudly as he could, gulping audibly when it slowly started to open

When she opened the door, she was about to greet with the offhanded casual 'hey?', before freezing as she fully realised who was standing there. She couldn't decide what she was going to do. How should she react?

After a couple seconds she quickly looked around, almost paranoid of someone finding him there.

"I've helped you avoid being caught before, Chris, I doubt I can do so here. Get lost before you're spot by one of the Fyranes." She hissed, trying to keep her voice low and urgent. She didn't realise he was Lindsay's upcoming appointment, after all.

Chris looked dejected and scared for a moment, and was about to say something, before they both heard Lindsay from behind her.

"Ashley?" he asked.

"Who is it?" he asked her.

Chris was silent, still, before swallowing hard again.

"Ah... I..." he stammered.

"It's Christopher Jenkins!" he then called out.

"Ah, please! Come in!" Lindsay called back.

Ashley was completely silent before stepping out of the way to let him in.

". . . . Ireally hope this isn't because of you forcing it." She commented with a sigh. There was no distrust or anything in her voice. She was more confused than anything, and she knew what kind of person Chris had developed to be while with her sister. What she didn't know, was who he was now, nor did she know that he was completely free of her sister. Then again, she had not idea that her sister was dead and gone. That piece of time was completely gone, and it wasn't something that people had found as a crucial thing to fill her in on.

Yet, despite knowing it was possible that her sister had her hand in this, or that Chris had ulterior motives, she still wasn't going to argue that. Granted, it was because of her current state, but it was still a bit odd.

Chris shook his head.

"It... it's not." he said.

"I promise. Though that probably doesn't mean anything..." he added quietly, before entering.

When he did, and he and Lindsay regarded each other, they both were silent for an awkward few seconds, before Lindsay coughed lightly.

"Welcome, Christopher." he greeted him.

"Hello, Dr. Fyrane." Chris responded meekly.

"Chris... come on. Let me help you find who you are. Who you were meant to be." Lindsay then said kindly, with a warm smile.

"...heh. That'd be really nice." Chris replied with a VERY slight smile in return.
