Janna’s pace quickened as she made her way over to him, breaking into a jog. Her green eyes held so much of the worry that had flooded her body and as she reached him, she immediately reached out gently rested the tips of her fingers on his chest, careful not to touch the wound. Tipping her head up at him, her vision blurred and she wiped away an errant tear. “What happened?” she asked him, her voice barely above a whisper. All of it was strangely intimate, and yet given their interactions before, and the strange sort of ease between them, it also felt perfectly natural.
“Kivon,” he said tiredly as he put a hand on Janna for support. “He is trying to get to the two of you. He wants to use you to get to me, but I won’t let him. He’s distracted for now, but you must leave here. You must leave the Nexus.” He was confident in this, and he knew full well that he could not leave now.
Stark stood on silently in sentry mode a few respectful steps back. He kept Guinan in his eye sweep as well trying to read everything and anything in this crazy upside-down place where thoughts made fiction into fact.
Stark Nightstalker CIO
“I’m not leaving without you, so forget it. Let’s go,” Janna said. “Let Kivon stay here if he likes. We can leave. You just have to want to, apparently.” Would he see reason? Would he come with her and Stark. She knew the CIO had too much sense to stay here too long, intrigued though he may be.
Meanwhile Guinan stepped closer, her eyes never leaving the storm moving in.

Eyes upward, Kingston frowned. “Come on, Orvos, let’s stop playing his game and just go home. To the Athena,” she added for emphasis.
