PANEL 1
CHERYL AND JAY ARE IN THE FOREGROUND. CHERYL IS WATCHING JAY, AND FROWNING A BIT. JAY IS LOOKING TOWARD THE KIDS, WHO ARE IN THE BACKGROUND. SIRIUS IS TRYING TO CHEW ON HIS ACE BANDAGE. RIGEL IS PAYING ATTENTION TO JAY AND CHERYL, AND LOOKS HORRIFIED BY WHAT WAS SAID ON THE LAST PAGE. IRIS IS OFF-PANEL.
Jay: Um, w-we call them Xs, actually. I like "Lux" better too, "X" is just... leftover, familiar terminology from my... f-former boss.
Rigel: bodies...?

PANEL 2
Cheryl: Oh, wait a minute, you're the guy who got Dieter fired a few years back, aren't you?
SAME SHOT. JAY IS LOOKING AT CHERYL NOW, AND IS SURPRISED AT HER QUESTION. CHERYL IS POINTING AT HIM, ONE EYEBROW RAISED AND SMILING A BIT, AS IF SHE'S FINALLY FIGURED SOMETHING OUT. RIGEL IS PANICKING AND TRYING TO GET SIRIUS TO LOOK AT HIM. SIRIUS IS PAYING HIM NO ATTENTION, HAS MANAGED TO CHOMP INTO THE ACE BANDAGE, AND IS GIVING IT A HARD YANK WITH HIS TEETH, STRETCHING THE MATERIAL. HE IS GRINNING.
Jay: Uh...

PANEL 3
SAME SHOT. JAY IS SQUINTING A BIT, BOTH CONFUSED AND UNCOMFORTABLE. CHERYL HAS MADE A FIST WITH THE HAND SHE WAS ORIGINALLY POINTING WITH, AND ALMOST LOOKS EXCITED. RIGEL IS STARING AT SIRIUS, BROW FURROWED AND PANIC GONE FROM HIS FACE. SIRIUS, BANDAGE STILL IN HIS MOUTH, IS WATCHING IRIS APPROACH HIM. IRIS HAS NOW ENTERED THE PANEL. HER BACK IS TO THE READER. HER HANDS ARE RAISED TO SHOULDER HEIGHT, HER PALMS TO SIRIUS, AND SHE IS GESTURING AT HIM TO STOP CHEWING ON HIS BANDAGE.
Iris: Oh, honey, no...
Jay: M-more like a decade ago, but yeah. Why?
Cheryl: I knew I recognized your name! We've actually met before.

PANEL 4
JAY AND CHERYL ARE OFF-PANEL. IRIS IS FIXING SIRIUS' BANDAGE. SIRIUS IS GRINNING UP AT HER APOLOGETICALLY. RIGEL IS IN THE BACKGROUND, FRUSTRATED AND GESTURING ANGRILY AT SIRIUS DUE TO HIS INATTENTIVENESS. IRIS, SIRIUS, AND RIGEL HAVE NO DIALOGUE.
Cheryl: You go by Ejay, not Eric, right?
Jay: Erm... I used to, it's just Jay now.
Cheryl: I remember you had short hair and braces then, I thought you were a teenager.
Jay: Ahah, yeah, s-so did everybody.
