I frown. "You're a mess. Lily, help me get these two into the bath. All girls together, I'd say. Liam, you want first or seconds?"
Always the gentleman, Liam sends we girls into the bath first. It's a quick affair; stripping, scrubbing off blood and less pleasant fluids, and dry off, slip into clean clothes, address wounds, which are surprisingly few and far between.
Finally, we all settle in the living room, Lily stilll staring at us, amazed. I give her a wry grin. "Welcome home."
Amazement and something like joy flit through her mind. I don't need to see her thoughts to understand.
We fought for her. For some reason, that still amazes her.

Kiou managed to get to her room and begin changing into decent attire. However part way through it, everything went black and she fell to the floor with a heavy thud. All of it had simply been too much for her.

I give her a wry look. "You may be healed, but the rest of us are not so lucky. My muscles are stiff as sinew after that mess." A thud makes me jump, then leap to my feet. "Shit. Kiou."
With the others clustered at the door, I work to stop yet another seizure. Finally, I sit back, exhausted.
"What's wrong with 'er?" Lily asks, her cockney accent more pronnounced in her fear. I gaze up wearily. "You'd know better than I, my girl."

i sit next to her and do nothing, it feels terrible being so powerless to be able to move mountains yet being unable to do anything about this.

Kiou groaned as she flopped over onto her back; head lolling to one side as she looked at Liv. "You're in my room again... Why?" He speech was slow as she got her control back.

"I'll give you a guess." I state mildly, and nod as her eyes widen.

"Oh..." It's soft as it slips from her. "Well... I'm better now... So... So get out..." It holds none of the strength she had had previously. If anything, it almost sounded like a request.

I sigh wearily. "We remain calm, and we think. Both of you, quiet down." I turn to Lily, who's frowning. "Something has gone wrong inside her." She snorts. "Understatement of the year, that." I give her a slight smile. "I do believe it's in your area of expertise, this illness. It is surely not in mine."
She gives me a look as sharp as glass, and I repay her with a smile, encouraging, hopeful. "What say you? Give it a look?"
"This the reason you went to all the trouble to bring me back?" she remarks, her voice brittle again. I shrug. "It was a reason. One of many."
She frowns, then looks away, studying Kiou, who glares at her with the promise of bloodshed in her eyes.

Lily frowns. "I'm no bloody psychic. I got to get in there to find out what's up 'fore I'll know anything at all."

Kiou glared daggers at Lily as she approached. "Touch me and I will end you." Though some of her really did want the help that Lily would provide, the whole situation was utterly terrifying for her. She felt like a dog backed into a corner. And that fear only served to fuel her anger further. She needed to prove to herself that she was neither weak nor scared; hence the resulting anger.

Lily knelt softly beside her and she was honestly surprised to find that the other girl's hand was surprising soft and almost delicate as it wrapped around her wrist. Moments later, she could feel the telltale pressure of another mind within her that she had felt so long ago.

~~~~~

Within her mind, the other Kiou laid out on a futon in her wooden prison that was deep within the dark temple. From what she could gather, it was nearing night. Ever since her other self had began tampering with her, the seasons and even the day cycle had begun to appear here. Night would come soon though and then she would return. Idly, she ran a hand over the tattoo on her chest that her other self had forced upon her and wondered if she would return again tonight. Though, with all the earthquakes that had happened recently, she wondered if she would.

I set up two glasses and place the bottle on the table "So in the last great war, what division were you in before the super soldier division?" I tilt my head to the side "we both fought I am wondering if we ever fought each other"

"I was in the R&D from day one, only let out to test what ever tweeks they did to my necromantically preserved body" I shrug "Floiran Greyer was an interesting unit to deal with though, part way through I went into a reset and was found and utilized by the allies, another reset back to the Nazi's. It really gets confusing to think back on to be honest." I take my shot "But no I never had the luxury of facing you."

I shrug. "I did several stints, mostly coastal work." I take another shot the answer is vague because after so many battles they begin to run together " who re-did your sword?"
