"Thank you," she said to Sara, before pouring the entire contents into Cassie's mouth and making sure she swallowed it.

The bespectacled Agent came round a few seconds later, looking far more sober. "What?" Her brain was trying to catch up, however, so she didn't sound all that coherent.

Kelvin looked nervously at the giant green... person... that had joined the minor scene of chaos. "I think she'll be all right now. Thanks for offering to help."

Nat waited until Cassie stopped blinking stupidly and focused on her, and then smacked her round the face. "You bloody-" smack "-stupid-" smack "-idiot!"

"Careful," said one of the others whom Nat didn't know yet. "You'll knock her out again."

"Oh, believe me, I'm just getting started," she gritted back. Cassie scrambled away.

"Hey, hey, I didn't hurt anyone, right?" She rubbed her cheek ruefully. "Okay, I probably deserved that, but still. Perspective."

"I'll give you bloody perspective." Nat hauled her upright. "Do you have any idea what you've been up to these past few minutes?"

Cassie paused, then reddened, then looked at the people surrounding her and turned a rather vivid shade of beetroot. "Oh no... please tell me I didn't... God, I am so, so sorry..." She buried her face in her hands, trying to hide the fact that she resembled an explosion in a red paint factory.

Kelvin edged away a little and decided to look to one of the others to reply first.
