    Because the hard drive Aren had found was unlocked by his friend, he had been pouring over the contents of it. Sadly there wasn’t much helpful information towards him in it, in fact it spoke very little of him much to his confusion. So eventually instead of looking for information directly from the hard drive, Aren searched for people that could give him answers. Aren had no clue where any of the scientists of the Foundation currently were so he hoped he could find someone who was merely an assest the Foundation counted on.

    Aren spent hours going through buisness transcripts trying to find something, anything that he could use to help him and after all the time spent he finally found something. The Foundation had occasionally relied on the assistance of someone named Sarah Evita for machinery that they would use in their containment procedures or during testing. After some reason Aren had learned that Ms. Evita actually resided in a mansion on the island. Excited, Aren quickly got dressed and rushed out the door to her address.

    The mansion was larger than Aren had expected it to be. In fact it was actually a little intimidating for him. Aren carefully walked to the gate that blocked the entrance to the mansion and buzzed in at the terminal. “M-Ms. Evita? Are you there? I-I-I wanted to ask you some questions...about a group called the Foundation?” Aren said meekly to the terminal in hopes of her letting him in.

    Sarah had been in the lab a lot more often again, working to upgrade some of her old designs to be more efficient and powerful, the natural course of any tech. The downside was that she had fallen back into her old routine, forgetting to take care of herself, only sleeping when she would pass out. However Belladonna had been keeping an eye on her, so that was partially why she had fallen back to routine. The terminal outside was wired to multiple sites on the house so that Sarah wouldn't miss anyone at the gate. It was an isolated system. With the terminal publicly available, she could not risk anyone hacking it to get to the defense system. That would just be a disaster. She stopped working when someone at the gate spoke, asking for her and then mentioned a Foundation. A group called the Foundation? There was silence for a few short moments as she powered her tools down. "I will be with you in a moment," she replied before activating some defensive measures just in case this went ugly.

    The door opened and a young-looking girl walked out and into the yard, walking along the pathway to the gate. As she approached, the gate opened automatically, sliding into the wall with a quiet hush. "Please, come in," she said, bowing politely. "My mother is currently getting dressed, and will meet you in the parlor. If you'll follow me." She turned and motioned to the mansion, and would start to accompany the stranger as soon as he starts to walk over. When they were half-way across, the gate would have already closed. "Would it be alright to ask you who you are?"

    Aren was relieved to hear Ms Evita over the terminal respond to him. He was completely unsure if she was even him so it was nice that she was and that she was willing to talk. Of course Aren was suprised however to not see Ms Evita greet him personally but instead a very cute girl. Aren’s face went bright red when he noticed her. “O-Oh o-o-Okay. That’s f-fine.” Aren would begin to follow the girl across the pathway into the mansion. When she asked for his name Aren tried best not to hesitate. “Oh i-it’s not a problem at all! M-m-my name is Aren Mulivic. I’m a junior at the academy.”

    "I'm a college freshman there," she replied after hearing that he went to the academy too. "My name is Belladonna Evita, it's a pleasure to meet you, Aren." Belladonna lead the guest inside and guided him to the parlor through a door at the right from the hall that featured a crystal chandelier and two massive sets of stairs to the second floor. The hall had a few doors on either side, with no indication of what lay beyond. "Please, have a seat," she motioned to the luxury furnishings in the center of the parlor surrounding a glass coffee table before taking a seat herself. "My mother should be here in a moment." She had a curious look on her face as she looked over the young man. He didn't seem like her mother's regular guests. "May I ask what your relationship with my mother is?"

    Aren merely smiled and nodded to what Belladona was saying, his mind currently racing with questions to ask Ms Evita when he finally did meet her. Aren barely even noticed the grandeur of the mansion itself as he was too lost in his own mind.

    Aren eventually snapped out of the trance that he was in when Belladona asked for him to sit down. Aren softly nodded to her and took a seat in one of the luxurious chairs in the center. The chair was very comfortable but it was obvious Aren was still unnerved by the entire meeting despite him being the one who sought her out. “M-My relationship with Ms Evita? The relationship...isn’t really anything. I’m just a nobody tied to the Foundation, and it’s her tie to it which brought me here in the first place....”

    Belladonna nodded, knowing that it was best not to dig too deep in her mother's affairs as it would negatively affect some of her guests. She could reliably get a much more fruitful answer from her mother once this visit was over. "Well, please excuse me, I'll prepare the tea for you and mother." Belladonna politely bowed to the guest before standing and heading to another room, using a different door from where they arrived in.
    A short while later, another door opened, and Sarah entered the room, keeping a jaded stare at her guest as she approached the coffee table and sitting at the far end from the door that lead to the hall. "I hope my daughter wasn't a bother. Please, make yourself at home." Sarah was wearing black slacks and a white dress shirt tucked in, with the sleeves rolled half way up her upper arm, exposing her sophisticated prosthetics. With her index and middle finger on one side of her glasses, she adjusted them so they'd sit perfectly balanced. "You seem to know who I am, but I can't say the same about you. I don't believe we have met before, have we?"

    Aren was very quick to notice the opening of another door, watching an older woman (whom he presumed to be Ms Evita) walk out into the parlor. He had only just met the woman but she had already unnerved him. If the Foundation listed her as an asset then she was certainly human but something about her made him uncomfortable. “O-O-Oh n-no your daughter was p-perfectly fine.” Aren said, shuffling uncomfortably in his chair. When she asked if they had met before Aren had simply shook his head. “No we have not. T-The Foundation wasn’t one to s-share secrets easily. M-May I ask what the Foundation told you about themselves when they h-hired you?” Aren knew very well that the Foundation wasn’t a group to let their inner workings leak easily. If Ms. Evita was told something it was probably lies or very vague.

    With her elbows firmly on the arm rests, Sarah touched her fingers against their counterparts and leaned slightly forwards, touching her lower lip to her index fingers. The boy was under heavy scrutiny. "You will need to be more specific than that, young man. There are a lot of foundations in this world, and while I never cared for their NDAs, there is an expansive divide between Pharmaceuticals, Electronic Companies and Farmers. Cybernetics itself has plenty of players, each with different needs." Belladonna returned, carrying a tray of cups and hot tea. She set one down for her mother and one for her guest, then left when nothing more was asked of her. "And where exactly did you hear my name?"

    Aren looked rather confused at Ms. Evita’s comment. Be more specific? How could be more specific? He understood how she might had misunderstood him but he was honestly still surprised. “The Foundation, thats their name. I can’t be more specific than that as they often weave stories to tend the people they hire.” Aren perked up at Ms Evita’s other question however, not paying much attention to Belladona. “O-Oh I have an old hard drive from them that contains information on all their assets, you were listed as one of them.”

    Sarah took a sip of her cup of tea and pondered the boy's claims. She honestly didn't remember anything as generic as just 'The Foundation', usually that would be something a client would say when she and them were already on the same page. She was beginning to think this boy was wasting her time. Perhaps this story was because he wanted to see her daughter? Though her interest with the conversation was somewhat retained by the claim that the boy found her information from an old hard drive. That was a serious claim, one that she would be worried about if she hadn't known of the pardons given to those who found their way to the islands. "And where did you find this hard drive?" That would narrow things down quite a bit, she felt, when she knew where this device was found geographically, but she didn't have high hopes as spare parts often get passed down and around.
