    Sophie is wandering around, carrying a bag with assorted odds and ends she bought. Nicolas is sitting on her shoulders, looking around curiously.

    Also in MagMart is Missy Halifax, pushing a cart full of children's clothes. Jefferies is not with her, as trying to get shopping done with her along takes longer, costs more, and accomplishes less of the needed purchasing.

    "Sophie! Hi, how are you doing? I see Nicholas is doing well?"

    "Oh, hi Missy. Nicholas is doing well. I was actually doing some shopping for him." The cat turns his head towards Missy and meows. "How're you and Jefferies?"

    Missy smiles broadly, with the happiness radiating off of her. "Oh, it's wonderful! The adoption was finalized and... Jyarl proposed to me. Jefferies wants me to be her mommy."

    Sophie first raises her eyebrows then smiles widely as well. Of course, it was clear during their visit to GLoG that Missy was already Jefferies' mother for all intents and purposes, but sometimes this sort of thing isn't as obvious to those involved...
    "That's wonderful. I'm sure you're all very happy. I think I have everything I need, so maybe I could help you out with the rest of your shopping and you can tell me all about it."

    Missy says, looking at her list. "Oh right. A new soccer ball. Gorgutz and Jefferies go through them like crazy. Gorgutz is our pug." She starts pushing the cart towards the toy department.

    "Well, she's definetly at the age where children grow fast. And I think orcs grow taller than humans too," Sophie says as she follows Missy. Nicholas settles comfortably on her shoulders once more. "Let me guess... teeth and claws and soccer balls aren't a good combination."

    Missy picks up the sturdiest ball. "Maybe. But those two play rough. Well you wanted to know about the adoption. One of the social workers recommended against the adoption, but then he was... murdered. During the investigation, it was found out he had ties to the Human Supremacists, so the other two social workers chose to disregard his report entirely and approve the adoption."

    "That's..." Sophie pauses, feeling conflicted. "I hesitate to call it lucky, you know? He didn't deserve to die even if he was a specieist. But he shouldn't have been allowed to be a social worker either."

    "It's possible the adoption still would have been approved even if the murder hadn't happened. One of the social workers was in our favour, and the third... well, we'll never know how she would have decided if this hadn't happened."
    Missy says. "I want to think she wouldn't have removed Jefferies from a home where she was happy. But she had concerns about Jyarl's past. I don't want to be grateful for a murder happening..." Especially since it was Cassius who did it... "...but I can't really grieve overmuch for it either."

    "I guess I haven't,"
    Missy says. "Jyarl is from a universe that's always at war with numerous interstellar factions. Then on his homeworld, his family is at war with other families in a constant jockeying for position. Then there are issues within his family..." She decides not to mention Javert and Druscilla killing Jyarl's parents. She doubts Jyarl would want that made public. "... He had to renounce his claim to the family because of adopting a non-human. It's a xenophobic culture. He changed his surname to Jefferies' even." Missy smiles. "I'm going to be Missy Hellstomper."

    Missy realizes as she approaches the registers and sees the Magbots that she really shouldn't be here. Magtok asked her to stay away from him after the whole Cassius thing, and she couldn't blame him for that.

    And she'd forgotten, because MagMart had a sale on children's clothes. >.<

    "Sophie, could you do me a favour and take this through the checkout? I just remembered something important. I'll meet you by the fountain." She takes out her wallet and hands Sophie the right amount of cash and looks around furtively.

    The Magbot at the counter charges for the goods, bags the items, writes something on the receipt, and then drops it into the bag, before sending Sophie off on her way.

    Sophie arrives with the bags and sets them on the ground near Missy.
    "Here I am. What happened?" Missy obviously isn't occupied with anything important, so there has to be some other reason.
    Nicholas becomes distracted with shiny, color-changing coins flying into the fountain and stares at them.

    "Hi Missy.

    I'm sorry, for a lot of things. This wall of silence is one of them. We can do away with that, if you want. However, I've been in a very dark place lately, and it's very likely to get even worse as time goes on. I've nobody to turn to, and everything to answer for. If you want to end this silence thing, I'd be all for it, but I figured I should warn you in advance: I am a goddamned mess right now, the exhausted aftermath of a sea of questionable decisions and backroom dealings and the like, fighting for control of AMEN, plotting the downfall of human supremacists, and failing spectacularly at both. Staying away would be better for you, as I'm probably in greater need of a therapist than a friend. You've clearly got enough on your plate looking out for Hellstomper anyways.

    Nicholas hops off Missy's lap and peers at the coins in the water. They're shiny, but in icky wet water. The cat bats at the water uncertainly.
    "I had a cat when I was a teenager. But she hated water too." Sophie goes silent when Missy starts reading... what the MagBot wrote on the receipt, apparently.
