Personally, Eden prefers staying in late to get extra work in. It's 3 in the morning, but considering how jacked up she is on her lactation-safe hot chocolate mixture, it may as well be 3 in the afternoon. She doesn't have to come in tomorrow, it being saturday, and seeing as Valentina is spending the day with Vince, she sees no need to be up at an ungodly hour of the morning. So getting all this paperwork in that she'd missed while on maternity leave is her priority, and for the most part, she's done an excellent job at tackling everything in her agenda for the week. The interim had done an excellent job at making sure she wouldn't fall behind so drastically. She'd have to send the woman flowers later on. But for now, Eden is content to make the journey to Eleni's office with a folder of importance that she needs the other woman to be in the loop on. It's a high-profile case being presented to Wizengamot, and the last thing she'd interested in is the Minister for Magic being cornered during a press conference regarding a case she knows nothing about. In her other hand, she has her third mug of the savory concoction, and she sips on it mindlessly as she makes her way down the floor towards the ministerial office. Soon enough, she finds herself at Eleni's office, and thinking it to be empty — not to mention already having her trust to just drop files off at her desk — she goes to unlock and open the door to head inside.

Eleni was in the office. She...was avoiding her house and wanted to feel...well, feel anything but torn. No, not torn. Confused? Distracted? Things were changing which was normal but...she wasn't sure. Guess she was just taken by surprise. Eleni hated surprises in her personal life. Work life she tolerated but personal surprises? No, she despises them. It's why her reaction to that surprise from Eden was less than enviable. So her way of recovering is hiding in her office and sleeping on the couch. Yes, she should be crashing with Kaia, Florian and Stephan but she has a feeling nothing in that house is anything less than chaotic. When Eden walked in, Eleni was lying on her back. She had a projector turned to the ceiling and was watching some romcom. Yeah, yeah, bad idea. Yes, she should get a television but the ceiling worked just as well. When Eden walked in, she peered over through the dark and her hand began to go for a wand, not really able to make out Eden beside her outline. "Lumos," she said and the tip of her wand lit up. "....Eden, why are you here? Go home, and sleep. You should be sleeping."

If Eden jumped out of her skin, that was absolutely none of your business. (She's never been so grateful for the darkness to be enveloping her and disguising her with the rest of the office, though.) It's taking everything in her power to not clutch at her chest like she's just been shot, and instead, she leans against the doorframe, trying to look cool and collected. Holy hell, she thinks, biting the inside of her cheek as her heart races in her chest. "You," she starts, heavily emphasizing the word as she glares eyes the other woman with a certain degree of irritation. Should've knocked. "Should also be at home sleeping. What are you even..." Eden trails off, her unfinished question answered as she peers up at the ceiling. Her eyebrows lift to her hairline and she purses her lips, nodding to herself like that explains everything. (It doesn't. She's stil confused. What is she doing here on a friday night?) "Nice movie," she says instead. "Came to drop by a case file. High-profile and will probably be leaked within the coming days. I thought you'd appreciate the heads up in the morning. I hadn't counted on you being here right now, but I digress."

Eden had some nerve being the one irritated. This was Eleni's office. But also-Eleni was well aware she wouldn't have knocked either so she didn't have much ground to stand on. Good thing it was Eden who didn't knock and so Eleni could ignore that little fact. "This...don't tell Kaia...is my home for the time being. I have the spare bedroom at home but I can't sleep," she confessed, "it's legally blonde. Wanna watch it?" Eleni paused before looking at the case. She could kill time now and going through it. With a sigh, she flicked her wand and the lights flicked on and the projector turned off. "Alright, alright, give it here. Will it be stressful? I do have a nice bottle of red to go through," she tsked as she got off the couch to walk over to her desk. She was wearing jeans and a white shirt but the jean button was popped open. Not that anyone saw anything, it was just more comfortable.

"Your home for the time being? Don't you have a place to live in with Hudson and Ralph?" Eden's confusion is palpable. She wonders for a moment if something has happened in her marriage, but the idea seems so unfathomable. Eleni's marriage to Hudson has always been one she's sort of idealized and seen as the perfect relationship to aspire for. Even with how she used to feel, she had to admit they made a wonderful match. Eden opens her mouth again to say yes, but Eleni's sigh gives her pause. Eden gives it a second, and when she starts moving towards the desk, purses her lips to suppress a smile. "You can leave it until the morning. It isn't urgent by any means. I just didn't want you to be blindsided in the morning on your way in, though apparently that should no longer be a point of concern." Eden shuts the door behind her quietly, as if there were anyone else in the vicinity she'd be disturbing, and ventures further into the office, eventually taking up one of the seats across her desk. She leans back, crossing one leg over the other instinctively. "One of Hamilton's aurors caught the individual that plotted and tried to assassinate the nymph ambassador. Unfortunately, it was a pure-blood with extremist ties. Do with that information what you like."

Eleni was aware that Eden was avoiding the question but Eleni decided she could make her own conclusions. Luka had...done something controversial, she'd broken up with Vince and Florence was a vampire now. Yeah, Eleni could see why Eden was at work. "Yes, but seeing as we're getting divorced, I decided sleeping in the same bed probably wasn't the best way to move forward," Eleni said before looking up sharply at Eden from where she was going through the file. "Don't laugh," she said, "but Hudson's gay so we decided it best to go our separate ways." Eleni was answering the why question before Eden asked. "Have they arrested them? I hear Azkaban is lovely this time of year. Is the ambassador safe? Kept up to date? How far along was this plot?"

It's for the best that Eleni reaches her own conclusion, because thinking about her personal life might just make her tear up. Seeing her ugly cry is a privilege only Aisha Okorie has. Eleni's sharp look makes her back straighten, brow furrowing a little. She's confused until Eleni talks again, because oh. "I'd never laugh!" she defends. She'd never even ask why! Actually, that one's a lie. She would ask. She'd try to be subtle at the very least, though, and with no ill will intended. "I'm... actually really sorry to hear that. How are you doing? Do you... need anything? A place to stay?" Eden pauses for a second. "She's safe. The aurors escorted her as close to her homeland as they could, but the nymphs are justifiably pissed. They're worried about what it might mean, given everything, but Hamilton has assured me it was an isolated event. He's in custody. They apprehended him this afternoon. Or, well, yesterday afternoon, hence why I'm here now." Eden relaxes again. "As it turns out, the media doesn't like assurances from anyone except the Minister herself, so I imagine you'll have some Prophet journalist knocking on the Ministry's doors soon enough."

Eleni would laugh so she isn't risking it. "I'm not saying you would, I'm just saying don't," Eleni responded and she hummed and her eyes slid back down to the paper. "No, no, I think it's fine. Everything's fine. It's for the best anyway. I wouldn't want to impose you and, plus, we'd probably get sick of each other two days in," she said, looking back up at Eden with a small smile, as if they were in on some secret joke. "Oh, really? They don't like assurances from blondie? Just little old me? I'm charmed. I'm glad people trust me more than anyone else. That'll do wonders for my ego." Kaia was going to need another bottle of wine when Eleni recounts this. "I hope it's the princess. Scarlett. She always brings food, I think she's bribing me with it but that's fine. I'll contact the nymphs, assure them that this was an isolated event. But I hope Hamilton is right and investigate any potential contact." Because that wouldn't be the best look if they got this wrong and there was something more serious brewing.

"I won't. Not now, anyways. I'll wait a few more years down the road, when it isn't so fresh anymore. You wouldn't kill me then. You'd probably be appreciative, even. Like a small — remember when my ex turned out to prefer sausages rather than salami? Yeah, haha, that's friendship goals for you, always finding new things to bond over! — you know?" Eden cracks a grin, but it's because of her own dumb little joke that isn't even that good. She shakes her head, mentally patting herself on the back before she lets her smile falter. When Eleni glances up at her, she does return the conspitorial smile, and it takes longer to fade when she looks back at her papers. "Not you saying that as if you hadn't been voted in by the majority of the citizens of the country." Eden stalls for a second. She could make a joke about Scarlett, but she doesn't think that'll go over very well, so instead she swallows it and opts for a different approach. "She's a nymph, too, isn't she? The duchess, I mean. Though Drew Hamilton as a nymph — that would definitely be interesting. But I think it'd do well to give her an excusive, politically speaking. I imagine everyone will feel more comfortable hearing it from one of their own, too."

Eleni scoffed at the joke. It was a terrible one. "I'll hold your word to that one," she remarked. "I didn't have a lot of competition, to be fair, but thank you for the reminder. I do like remembering about my landslide. Did you vote for me?" She asked with an innocent smile, even though the question was most definitely a trap. "Yes, I...I think she is? A fire one. I hear the palaces are all in a mess because the kids are coming into their powers. You're right. I really do hope it's the duchess now, she can be sympathetic when she writes it. I'm just glad the ambassador wasn't hurt." With that, she flicked the case shut. There wasn't much she could do with it at this point in time. "Thanks for bringing it over, though. Wine? It's 3 am and the night is young." Eleni slid the case into her drawer, making sure to lock it. "This place is almost scary without anyone, I keep thinking someone's going to jump me." Not that anyone would try. Not with Eleni. She'd throw them all the way to the auror department.

"No, actually. I wrote in Russell's name," she replies, maintaining a serious tone even though she's just barely pursing back another amused smile. "Oh, no, I can't. I'm still lactating. Thank you, though." Technically, she could so long as it's within the standard amount, but there are some lines Eden isn't willing to cross; especially as it relates to Valentina's safety and wellbeing. "Really? I find it peaceful. I get more stuff done during the night than I do during actual work hours."

Eleni stood up and clicked her fingers for the door to swing open. "Get out of my office," she said, her tone serious but then her lips cracked into another grin as she walked around her desk. "Please, I don't believe you. But yeah, fair enough. How is post labour going? Wait, should you still be on leave?" She asked as she brought out the bottle to drink from it directly. It was only her. She wasn't getting drunk. "Eden," she tsked, adopting Kaia's personality just for a moment and was acting if she had any grounds to stand on. "You'll exhaust your body."

Eden lowkey believes her at first, but she doesn't plan to pay her any mind, making a point to lean back on the chair and regard Eleni with a raised eyebrow. The grin throws her off, and when Eden finally realizes, she laughs and shakes her head. "You wouldn't kick out the only company you have at 3 in the morning," she objects, poking her tongue out like a petulant kid. "It's going well enough. It's been a while now. I didn't want to fall behind too much, and to be frank, it won't do me any favors to take a prolonged break. Not when the alternative is to sit on my bed, wallowing in self-pity about everything that's happened." To her credit, she does chuckle. "Okay, Madam I'm going to work as I pop this kid out."

"I never said that I was going to work as I popped that kid out, I was told very explicitly that that wasn't going to be an option," Eleni said as she made a face at the memory. "Why are we like this?" She asked before threw herself back onto her couch as she took another sip of the wine. "I thought I genuinely was going to become an athlete. When I was in Ilvermorny. A race car driver, to be specific, which yes I know....that stabbed, shot, me in the back. But I did not think I'd ever be in this position. Let alone in England. And you know, I do tremendously well when I'm alone. I love the company of myself. Being alone. Yeah, you can't leave or I will fire you." She couldn't do that but she will threaten it.

"First she says she loves being alone, and then she says to not leave," she tuts, lips curling upwards in amusement. "You say I can't, but it's becoming increasingly tempting. By the way, if you aren't a bit more careful, you're going to get wine all over your couch and I can assure you that's a stain ridiculously difficult to get rid of." Eden swivels in the chair, now facing Eleni where she's decided to drop roots on the sofa. It strikes her in that moment that this is the first time in years they're really interacting in a non-professional fashion in years. The realization is a bit unsettling, considering how close they used to be, but Eden can't find the fault in Eleni or her. They just... grew up to be wildly different people, she supposes; at least before finding they had similar political ambitions. Knowing how far they've come is heartwarming though, she has to admit. "You'd have had better luck as a professional quodpot player than a race car driver," she muses. Eleni in a dangerous contraption? No, she doesn't like the sound of that as the Chief Warlock. "We is a whole lot of people. I took a month before giving birth." Sure, only because she was put on bed rest because of high blood pressure, but still.

"I might have changed my mind," Eleni responded and took another sip of the wine before she put a stopper in it. "Why do you think I made sure my couch was a dark colour?" Eleni asked with a small laugh. "I don't trust myself with white. Never. I just know something is going to get on it." It didn't cross Eleni's mind that this was probably the most comfortable she'd been around Eden for years now. It felt natural and Eleni wouldn't pause to consider this until well after this night has resolved. "I could have! I like spectating. If I really wanted to cause some chaos I would have gotten into quidditch. Given Malia a run for her money." Again, this rivalry was just for fun. "Not that she has any proper competition," she said without thinking it through and paused, "besides Florence, of course." It was a slightly well known fact that Florence was a better player than coach. "A month? That's healthy of you." Eleni spends one day in bed and becomes stir crazy. No, she would not have done done well in isolation that does not need to be said. "You...You can sit down if you want. On the couch. There's more than enough room for two."

"That's a radical change in such short notice. I have to say, Yaxley, I'm feeling happy now that you've stroked my ego a little," she teases, grinning. "White has its advantages sometimes. Dark colors don't cover it all, you know. But at risk of sounding overly opinionated, I think the dark color looks more modern and sophisticated. You throw some white into the mix and it's just overdone. Light blues are good, too — they make you look professional. Pink, purples, yellows, and oranges aren't so much so, but if you know how to mix and match..." Eden trails off, shrugging. She's pointedly aware she just broke off into this weird little ramble about office colors, but in her defense, this is something she's thought about extensively for her own office. Seeing as her terms are now longer than the Minister's, it's important to her that she maintains a similar level of professionalism and sophistication as her executive counterpart. "I think you're a very skilled person, but I don't think you have what it takes for quidditch," she admits, "You'd find it too boring to play and get banned for breaking the rules the first hour into the game. But if it helps you sleep at night, then sure — you would give a world cup champion a run for her money." Eden nods. As serious as her voice is, she still retains that happy look on her face, smiling even if a little toned down now that the conversation has changed. "You could argue it just stressed me out more." Eden pauses for a second, considering the offer, but after a second, she shakes her head. "I'm good, but thank you, darling. These chairs are more comfortable than I thought they would be." The couch would probably be more comfortable, but Eden doesn't really want to put herself in a position that makes all her progress in recent times deteriorate and fall apart. "How is baby Ralph doing?"

Eleni was lost in the rant. She wasn't anywhere close to being a good interior designer. She buys her houses already fully furnished and hires someone else to do her office. She had no idea what colour went with what. Except, like, the Hogwarts colours. "Breaking the rules is fun, it keeps everyone on their toes," Eleni responded. Yeah, she definitely would get banned from it. "But thank you, I really appreciate you stroking my own ego. It balances my words. "But hey, if you're ever in need some extra cash, I can hire you as a designer. I really just kept Hudson's design, I didn't put a lot of thought into it," she confessed. "Ha! There it is, I knew it. You got bored. That's why I came back early. The we still stands strong." Eden was right-the chairs were more comfortable than one might think. Eleni was rather proud of her find. "Good, he's a very quiet baby. Some might say too quiet but I'm counting my blessings."

"Condoning rule-breaking as Minister. Nice," she tsks, shaking her head in faux disappointment. Eden wants to make a joke about Eleni splitting off from everything Hudson, but because she wouldn't appreciate it if it were made to her, she once again bites her tongue. Instead, she shakes her head again. "Heaven knows the government's salary isn't all that good," she mutters. "I didn't get bored, I got stressed out knowing how behind I'd be getting, even with Collister riding my desk for the time being. And that's good! Quiet babies are good babies. Val loves to cry. I love her, but she has quite a set of pipes on her." She definitely got them from Vinnie, because Eden was a saint growing up. Still is.

"I've decided the next few months will be a dictatorship, just for fun," Eleni said with a grin, clearly joking. "Excuse me! Aren't you living in a penthouse with enough funds to support, like, two parasites? Three including Luka's girlfriend." Eleni couldn't even blame Eden for that. She was stressed about not being around for five minutes. "Do you think we're going to turn into helicopter parents?" She asked. "We can barely leave our jobs alone without becoming stressed and-wait really? I can't believe you've given birth to a crier." Then she began to laugh and covered her mouth. "Sorry, that's totally not funny at all."

Eden's jaw drops, looking positively offended by Eleni's laughter. "Oh, screw you! Criers aren't that bad! Now any kid you have in the future is going to be a screamer. It'll be the universe defending me and laughing at you," she remarks, huffing. "And no, that's what I get for losing my parents. Not for the hard work into my political career." Eden quirks an eyebrow, trying to look a little bit bothered by her poor defense, but she again isn't successful. She purses her lips, but the slight uptick is unmistakeable. "Just two parasites now that Florence is - has moved out." She refuses to say she's gone, even though she feels it's a little bit true. "You know, I don't think we will. You know well enough that helicoptering gets parents nowhere, and I raised Luka long enough to know what to do when the ball really starts rolling." Eden shrugs, "I really think we'll turn out okay. Besides, it's easier raising kids as single moms, right? No husband being a headache or as petulant as the child." Okay, so maybe she's just trying to ressure herself now, but she really does think they'll end up okay.

"I will not. My genes will and always will be dominating," Eleni said, poking out her tongue. "And I was referring to Vinnie, Florence's career took enough that she made a nice buck. Is Vinnie moving out as well? But yes, I suppose you're right. And I hear it's the opposite and that raising a kid alone can be a little stressful. But...you know what, yeah, it'll be so much easier. We don't have to listen to anyone but ourselves." Eleni realised Eden was making herself feel better and changed her tone. Honestly, Eleni hadn't even considered that aspect yet. It'll be fine. Eden was right-everything will turn out okay, she knew it will.

"Oh, so you've never been much of a screamer? Okay, sure," she laughs, shaking her head. "Yes, he is. He doesn't want to go too far, but with the pregnancy over, and having agreed to just stay friends... there's no real need for him to live with me, I guess. I don't really mind. What I do mind is that Avery let it slip that Luka wants to share a place with him to make herself more independent. The logic behind that? I don't know. But hey, she can make all the mistakes she wants as long as she learns from them." Eden looks a bit miffed and sounds embittered, but she's really trying not to; she doesn't want to resent any of them. It's just a bit shitty that they're all leaving her in the moment she feels she needs them most. "It's... whatever. I'll be fine. We both will be."

Considering she was the oldest, she had no one to dispute the next sentence. "I was an angelic child. Florian was the screamer," she said and then she smiled, despite looking how miffed Eden was. "Eden, I've known you all for decades. On and off. But Luka will be running back to you. She's always been the type to try and appear more independent than she actually is. So guess we're both...you know," she said. "Maybe I will take you up on that offer. Your couch is probably more comfortable than this one." Eleni was doing it so Eden would have company. That's the only reason.

"I find that hard to believe. Florian's always been too quiet, too in-his-mind. You, on the other hand? Cases could be made against you, but I digress." Eden tries not to smile at the comment about Luka, because she still really is hurt and frustrated with her, but caves when she sees Eleni's smile. It's kind of infectious. "She will, but it's not the same when she finally moves out, you know? Because then it's real. Then she's really grown up and left, and I just — I don't really know if I'm ready for that." Eleni's sudden backtrack confuses Eden, but listen: she isn't going to think about it too hard. All she knows is she'll be grateful for the company. "I own a full blown penthouse funded by my dead family and you think you're sleeping on the couch? I have guest bedrooms," she scoffs, "To think you think so little of me, Yaxley. You're kind of hurting me here. I'd make room for you in the master bedroom, but..." she tsks, unable to stop herself from making the small joke. "Thinking it wouldn't be a good idea considering my track record. Might confess more undying love for you."

"Florian learnt to be far to quiet after everyone got ear plugs for his screaming," Eleni said. No one can know otherwise. Is it true? Is it false? No one will know. Kaia might know but hush. "Well, Eden, at least you have one aspecting of parenting down packed. By the time Val wants to move out, you'd have already gone through the motions," Eleni said with a small laugh, "time doesn't really let you be ready for anything. What time has shown is that you did raise Luka pretty well. So I think you have Val down packed." Eden was going to be fine, she always landed on her feet. Like a cat. "More undying love for me? How much more is there to confess?" Eleni asked, though the comment slightly threw her off. Why? She wasn't sure. "And it's probably for the best I have my own room. Don't tell anyone, but I've been told I kick people in my sleep. I don't want you to wake up with bruises. Or, god forbid, on the floor. But hey, I'll take a guest bedroom over a couch any day."

"No, don't say that. Don't remind me. I'd like to just roll her up in her blanket and store her away forever. Nothing can happen and she can't leave if I lock her up and away, like Mother Gothel." Eden is only half serious, don't worry. "Not much, just a speck. It might be a small little cell from last time. Could also be a precursor to more. It really depends on whether you're willing to cook dinner as a guest, because I'm 31 and I still can't cook award-winning food." Decent, sure, and edible, but simple at best. "Oh, so you're a screamer and kicker? What a combo. Now I feel bad for everyone who knew little baby Eleni."

"I can cook a few things," Eleni said after a moment. "I'm a bit rusty, but I have a few dishes under my belt. Just don't ask for chicken and waffles. Worse comes to worse, we can hire a personal chef for us. Or just order in every night, that works too. And...Eden, I better be getting the biggest guest room, you are not threatening to put me in a jail cell." Eleni is low maintenance, she stands by that, but she also has standards. "And I am not a screamer, I am a kicker. Just a kicker. Would it be more believable to say Kaia was the screamer out of us? And considering both parents are dead, you don't have to feel bad for anyone. No one knows how I was as a baby. Except me."

"Chicken and waffles? Merlin, I get that it's an American thing — I've lived there, I certainly get it — but it's so disgusting. Who uses waffles as bread?" Eden tries not to grimace, but fails. "Says the woman who was willing to settle for the couch. Make a decision and stick to it, woman. Are you going to settle for simple or go big?" Eden tuts, shaking her head teasingly. "You know, I'd be inclined to believe that about Kaia, yeah." She shifts in her seat, kicking her heels off so she can lift them onto the chair and sit criss-cross. "Okay, so personal chef it is." Eden is trying hard not to dwell on how domestic it seems. Living together, having their own chef, doing dinner every night after work, and — okay, she swears she's over Eleni up and down, but after having a thing for her for over a decade, you can hardly blame her for the butterflies she feels erupt in her stomach. "Finally, some good food. I've been living off takeout ever since Florence dipped."

"I have decided America is redundant. We were all born in Canada," Eleni said before scrunching up her nose. "I'm going to settle for whatever I want in that particular moment, consistency is not my strong part I will admit. And we don't need the cook quite yet. I think I can pull it off with amazing results." Eleni was digging herself a hole here. "Quality over quantity." Kaia was going to laugh at her if she ever heard about this. "You're kidding? Every night? Doesn't Luka know how to cook?" Florence being the one to cook wasn't at all that surprising if Eleni was honest. Florence seemed like the one to cook out of the three of them. Shame her cooking was a bit redundant now.

"Canada O Canada, my sweet Canada! Happy to be Canadian!" Eden chortles, leaning forward slightly as her shoulders shake from her laughter. "Don't know. I was always too afraid to ask her. I think she'd just treat it like a potion, and that wouldn't be the best approach, I don't think. I tried it and ended up without eyebrows somehow. If not for magic, that would've been awkward first day as the Head of IMC."

Eleni briefly tried to visualise Eden as eyebrowless but came up short. "Maybe awkward, but it definitely would have been amusing. A good icebreaker, even," Eleni said to try and give some consolation. Yes....Eleni can see why Eden was living on take out. "Maybe I can sign you up for some cooking classes. When's your birthday? We can learn together! Become functioning adults in society." Oh, the irony. The minister of magic and chief warlock learning how to cook.

"I thought you just said you could cook a few things?" Eden quizzes, quirking an eyebrow as a wry smile draws her lips upwards. It hits her with a pang that Eleni doesn't even know her birthday. Fair, but it's an unfortunate reminder of the distance grown in recent years. "In any case, I would like that. Maybe Luka will get off my ass about the statistics of annual deaths because of food poisoning." Eden rolls her eyes, shaking her head. She can't with Luka sometimes. "We'll probably get shat on by a cluster of white old men claiming we should stick to the kitchen, but you know what?" She points at Eleni to emphasize her point. "I get to pull the modern successful bisexual, single mom card and give them a good old fuck you. So count me in."

In Eleni's defence...the only person she knew for certain was Kaia, and Hudson. She kept getting him wrong by a week. Birthday's weren't her strong point. She made sure her assistant reminded her more often than not. It didn't matter with Stephan. She once said happy birthday two weeks early and he stood there before believing it was his birthday and questioned why everyone else had forgotten about it. "In the muggle world or magical? Surely we have automatic fixes with potions for food poisoning," she said. Luka would be the one to know the muggle statistics on top of wix statistics. "And you're very bold we'll be showcasing to the world what we're doing. We can use polyjuice potions so no one takes any photos of us. And I do! More than you, apparently. I'm just doing it so you're not alone." A lie.
