Sokar the Destroyer: Due to... er, persuasions by my brothers, I must--

Broli the Destroyah: Oh, to hell with ya! -whack-

BtD: It's about damn time I got control! Now, what should I-- -crack-

StD: I get you later. Now, the fic!

Dez Guardius: ...Stupid brothers.

Misato, Kozo, and Ritsuko stood in the hallway outside the cafeteria. Misato spoke up.

"So you're saying that the Shinji with us now is a clone?"

Kozo nodded. "But he is essentially the same as Rei."

"How so?"

It was Ritsuko's turn. "You remember what I told you happened to the Commander."

Misato shivered. "Yeah."

"Well, when I checked his remains, apparantely the he had the First Angel embedded in his hand. But, it disappeared before I had a chance to blink."

A memory struck Misato. A gigantic being, covered in light, surrounded by swirling water. "You mean that all this time, we had two angels in NERV!?"

"Yeah, pretty much."

"And you're guessing that Adam, the First Angel, fused with the Shinji here?"

"And Lilith fused with the Rei Fuyutsuki found."

Kozo grinned. "I had the clone made so Rei wouldn't be lonely. Outside, I show nothing. But inside, I care about her well-being more than you know."

He pointed into the cafeteria through a window, and they saw Rei and Shinji at a table. Shinji said something in her ear, and she giggled at what he said.

"Whoa. Now I wish I was in there. I've never heard her giggle, let alone seen her smile."

"We don't have anything to worry about, right? I mean--"

"They can't jumpstart Third Impact. Unless you want to separate them. Which is a bad idea."

"Speaking of which..." Misato ran in. Kozo and Ritsuko looked overto see Rei and Shinji right in the middle of a deep frenchie.



Ritsuko shook her head. "Those kids and that woman..."

Kozo nodded, then looked at her seriously. "About those Aliens..."

"They're dead. I know so because I took them out of Rei III and Shinji I before they (the 2 former children) were cremated, then checked for any life signs. They are locked in a metal crate, due to be dumped in Mt. Fuji in 1 hour."


The 2 guards sat in chairs beside the crate, one clearly angry. "Lousy, damned NERV bastards. Too damn lazy to do their own work..."

"Shut up."

The one was about to make a remark, when he felt a burning sensation in his back. He leapt off his chair screaming, while the other patted his back at the burn.

They looked back at the crate, to so a nice-sized hole sizzzling away. Nothing being said, they crept up. One looked into to the hole, and heard an eerie chittering noise...

BtD: ...Owwwww...

StD: Like I said, my brother pushed me to this.

DG: ...Sokar...

StD: And the ever loyal readers. I hope this clears thing up. Ja ne!

THE END... or is it?
