++ Concealed Void, Rathmore Chaos, Europa

** The Guardian enters the Concealed Void lost sector and clears the area of House Salvation Fallen. The Guardian rendezvous with the Exo Stranger and Ana Bray.

Ana Bray: I knew Clovis was bad, but all this… I’m feeling a little ashamed of being a Bray right now.

Exo Stranger: Welcome to my world.

Ana Bray: Elsie… Clovis, you… This is all I wanted. All I searched for. But you’ve been around this whole time, and I never heard from you —

** Ana turns to face the Guardian.

Ana Bray: Guardian? What are you doing here?

Exo Stranger: This is actually why I brought you here, Ana.

** The Guardian uses the Skeleton Key.

Exo Stranger: Perfect. This is exactly what we need to decrypt the journal and find that Stasis research.

Ana Bray: Stasis? You mean Darkness power?

Exo Stranger: Ana… what we’re doing here is extremely important. Stasis is just a tool. We’ve used it for good —

Ana Bray: You’re using Darkness?

Ghost: I was skeptical at first too, Ana —

Ana Bray: Both of you? After everything it’s done to us?

Exo Stranger: Ana. Our past — I thought that keeping it from you was the best way to protect you.

Ana Bray: Protect me? I’ve been protecting myself just fine without your help, thanks. And this? Using the Darkness? That can’t end well.

Exo Stranger: And it didn’t before. But this time —

Ana Bray: Hold on. Before?

Exo Stranger: In another timeline, Ana, you were… too obsessed with your past for your own good. And I was… too selfish for my own good. The truth is… I’m not from this timeline. Where I come from, the Darkness won. And I tried to shield you from it, but all I did was… Drive you to it. I’m sorry for keeping so much from you. I think the best way to help you now… is just to be there for you.

Ana Bray: Look… I don’t mean to be ungrateful, and it’s incredible that you’re alive. Really. But I… don’t know how to handle this. I’m sorry.

Exo Stranger: Ana, wait —

** Ana transmats away from the area.

Ghost: Being honest with her was the right thing to do.

Exo Stranger: Time will tell. For now, I’ll keep working to find the location of Clovis’s Stasis research. We’ll talk again soon.
