Anya has become overwhelmed with the memories of her childhood, and what she expected to be a nostalgic visit, has triggered deep emotions, and she remembers the atrocities that occurred inside her apartment before she was taken and made a Haernyara.
Inajda and Alexand have followed Inajda’s childhood friend to the old apartment building which used to be their home. Alexand wants to hold back until the Haernyara leaves, but Inajda has accepted that her hideout has been compromised, and insists on following Anya inside, to whatever end. (See Issue # 300: The Unbound Box Part 5, with reference to an optical shield in Longsheng)
Anya’s memories have been triggered by her return to Moscow. She has been awarded two hours leave, by Helga Ritter, for presenting the American president with the Bad Thing Box. Fully aware that there is a tracking device in her wrist, she is compelled to visit her parent’s old home, to return to a place full of good memories.
Future Alexand has some loopholes she needs to fix from an incident which happened to a past version of herself. She takes Katherine with her to Moscow, 3992, where they both are witnesses to the brutal rituals of the fledgling Amanojuko empire.
Katherine had taken Aamiina and Jamila to Samira Ganesh, who showed them to their new apartment. Katherine decided to avoid work for the day and return to her own apartment as the events of the afternoon have made her think about her own future on this ship.
