Future Alexand’s Guild Master has arranged for her alter ego, Creya Johal to have lodgings onboard the Kyuunansen. Future Alexand had to pretend not to care about Katherine, and they both reluctantly parted from each other, Kat returning to her laboratory and Alexand chaperoning her ward, Anya Ranyevzsky.
Alexand materialises along with Inajda and the captured Haernyara, outside Jochi’s burnt out studio.
Whilst Anya was unconscious, Inajda had retrieved all that she needed from her ex hideout, aware that she could never use it again, and that the Amanojuko should not have access to it or know it existed. She had planted a series of invisible bombs around the edges of her old apartment complex and she, Alexand and their rescued ex Haernyara, retreat to the safety of the adjacent street.
Anya wakes up in her parents’ bed, with her hands tied up, and two women sitting, arguing with each other about her (in a dead language, Russian.)
Inajda has placed a recorder inside Alexand’s contact lens and will return to Abouna Panak with the incriminating evidence implicating high up members of the world’s government, including the American President and Mongolian Vice President in the abduction, torture and murder of children.
