"Ma'am? You wished to be notified when Sierra returned from her treatment?"

"Yes, thank you." Adele dismissed her assistant with a brief gesture and rose, smoothing her crisp and severe suit skirt before heading out to stalk the catwalks over where the Dolls ate, played and went about their wiped existence between assignments.

Sierra had been troublesome as of late. Not as much as Echo, perhaps, but she seemed to have gotten herself into a sort of love triangle - an impossible thought as the Active's blank state should be incapable of such feelings.

And yet at every opportunity she rejected her client Nolan, or at least displeased him in some way that he complained heavily about, and returned to draw just a bit closer to Victor.

She watched the two of them, head down over a picture book, and was struck for a moment by the childlike adoration in their gazes. This was not adult lust, the kind many of her clients used her services to sate in what could euphemistically be called unusual ways, but a simple joyful reaction at the presence of another.

Something tugged at the corner of her icy heart. Miss Lonelyhearts was also in a love triangle of her own. As she gazed down at the two Dolls a piece of her felt jealous at the purity of affection there. In her world few experienced anything quite so pure and if they did they were sure to spoil it.

Nolan... That was his type. If he couldn't get he wanted on his own, he found a way to have it anyway. She'd been against him from the start; upper management had made sure his wishes in regards to Sierra were met.

It was her job to make sure Sierra was ready and willing whenever he wanted her and that meant no emotional ties to anyone else.

Watching Victor and Sierra turn the pages in the picture book, she made a mental note to inquire with Topher about improving her wiping procedure.

Just not right away. After what they'd done to her, Sierra - Priya - deserved a few quiet happy moments.

Not that she'd ever let anyone know that.

She had a reputation to uphold, a business to run and an appointment for Miss Lonelyhearts to cancel.
