“The more AB and Missy got to know these people, the more disturbed the couple became with the strained interaction between Ina, the leader of the System Guards, and her followers. I don’t recall who it was that broke the news, whether a friend or Ina herself, but this socialite with the slightly increasing obsessive behavior had her violent story told, once and for all. You see, with their AB not present when Ina met Cici, the two conversed about their horrible genetic tampering at the hands of the SG elite of the universe, and this had both girls bitter. Ina then researched their masters to learn more about them. She hated them, but she knew this was wrong and wanted to understand their reasonings so she could be a better SG. Cici felt the same. Both girls wanted to do right, regardless of their feelings. However, the more they learned about their masters, the sicker they became as reality tore the morals right out of them. You see, the SGs of their universe were as corrupt as the ones who were over AB after Medley quit. But rather than wait for the management to change, Ina and Cici were left with the ethical dilemma of being recruited to specifically destroy evil thoughts when the very people who made them were all very wicked. Should they turn a blind eye and ignore what they’re compelled to do or risk their lives fighting the good guys? And, if the good guys are just like the bad guys…why does anything matter?
“So, after much thought and discussion, Cici and Ina, along with their friends, made the difficult choice to rid the imagination of these bad thoughts, slaughtering them all. With the leaders out of the way, Ina was put in charge, but the guilt of what she’d done consumed her to the point that she became an obsessive, paranoid control freak. Most of the time, she wasn’t necessarily abusive, but she was constantly, very visibly in an emotionally unstable state that terrified all of her friends into obeying her like scared little…sorry, buddy…puppies.
“Now, you’d think coming clean of all this would make Ina feel better, but it did the opposite. As soon as she told AB all of this, she instantly hated him, knowing that he would try to reach out to her, and she felt this was stupid. ‘Time means nothing to you. Why can’t you go back and help me in the past? You think you can just be nice to me and fix it all?’ I won’t bother repeating all her rants, but the gist was a mix between self-loathing and hating AB. Despite some accusations, most of her distaste for AB wasn’t necessarily about blaming him for what happened, but rather it was about her disbelief in his efforts to help her. In her mind, he was just doing his job. He wasn’t really her friend. The concepts of love, grace, truth, compassion and morality were all cruel jokes to her and she no longer had the heart to bear this anymore. She was just going to stay in her storyboard with her pawns and live out the rest of her days away from the nonsense. However, Ina’s one security was stolen as her best friend and sister Cici was the one to point out to the rest of their teammates what a controlling, abusive jerk Ina had become, and they weren’t going to live in fear of her with their help being so close to them. In a rage, Ina disowned everyone and angrily demanded in cruel sarcasm to receive her stupid life sentence. Not only did she want to show everyone that AB was lying through his teeth, but, as you can imagine, she couldn’t bear hearing her best friend turning on her, especially over things Ina knew were true, causing the girl to hate herself even more.”
The girls almost tell Ti Chi to stop as all these sad stories are a lot to endure, but of course, they keep listening.
“AB and Missy were politely honest, and sometimes acted like strict parents to the childish Ina, but they gave her what she wanted, locking her in a cell for seventy years. There, Ina had the agonizing torture of AB and Missy sharing with her the same companionship he had shown me. At this point in the duo’s Infinite training, sparing a century of their life wasn’t that big a deal, so they didn’t mind. That meant for the next seventy years, every waking moment was spent with these two. Of course, most of the time, this was them sitting by in silence so Ina wouldn’t have to worry about being pestered with constant Bible verses and encouraging advice. In fact, as you might imagine, most of the conversations were started by the cynical prisoner, with most of these chats going absolutely nowhere.
