The next few days Chloe trained Tenchi while Michael sites back and watches and he can’t help himself but laugh when he sees Tenchi getting beat up by Chloe.  When training was over for the day Chloe walks out as Tenchi laid on the floor moaning in pain (pathetically) and Michael said, “Was he even a challenge?”, Chloe said, “He’s good to begin with, but he knows jack when it comes to defending himself.”, Michael said, “I guess I will carry him back.”, and he lifted Tenchi and threw him over his shoulder as they walked back.  When they reached Ryoko and Tenchi’s home Ryoko watched as Michael dropped Tenchi down like a sack of potatoes and Ryoko laughed and said, “Seems you had loads of fun Tenchi!”, Tenchi replied (sarcastically), “Ha, ha.”, and they sat down to eat and they noticed Carrie and Arsenal were eating silently and Michael said, “So Carrie, how is your day going?”, Carrie replied (shyly), “Okay.”, there was a short silence and Michael said, “Okay, that’s it?”, and Carrie shrugged as she continued to eat and Michael leaned close to Arsenal and whispered, “Is she really okay?”, Arsenal grunted with acknowledgement but Michael knows that he is faking it.  Carrie suddenly left the table and went to her room and at first Arsenal looked confused (as did everyone else) but when he saw Michael nod towards Carrie he got up and followed.


    When he entered her room he saw Carrie was sitting on the bed (balled up) and Arsenal said, “Okay?”, Carrie cried silently and said, “I can’t help it.  I still keep thinking of those people that I killed,” Arsenal sat next to her and held her closely and she said, “I can’t forget about them.  I’m responsible for their deaths.  I shouldn’t even be alive for what I’ve done.”, and she began to sob and Arsenal held her in his arms and he kissed the top of her head and comforted her when he said, “Can’t lose you.”, and Carrie looked up at him with her face wet with tears and Arsenal whipped her face with his left hand and Carrie held his hand and looked up to see he looked both worried and sad and Carrie said, “Arne”,and Arsenal said, “Carrie” and Carrie kissed him as she embraced him.  They came back to the table (as everyone looked like they were waiting) and they continued to eat.  Michael said, “So everything is better now?”, Carrie replied, “For now, just some problems I still have to deal with,” Arsenal said, “not problem.  Just have to get over it,” Carrie’s plate flies off the table and smashes onto the wall across from her and Carrie yells, “how many times I have to tell you!  I just can’t forget about killing over 30 people for no reason!  I am responsible for their deaths and I have to live with that for the rest of my life!” Arsenal looked a little surprised and said, “But Carrie...” Carrie yells, “No Arsenal, you don’t understand!  You are a machine and you truly do not have any feelings!  You only loved me because I have something that you lacked and I do not blend in with others which makes it easier for you to love me!”, Arsenal said, “Carrie, I do care, I...” his face flew and hit his face with food still on it and Carrie said, “Arsenal why don’t you just do me a favor and leave, now!” Arsenal was then throw out of his seat as the door slid open and was thrown outside.  He tried to stumble back but the door slid shut on his face.  Inside, the house is all quiet as Chloe wrapped her arm around Carrie as she cried in her shoulder while outside Arsenal rested his hand and forehead to the door as he grimaced (as if in pain).  He eventually stood up, turned and walked away into the woods but when Michael came out to see him it was too late and Arsenal was gone.  When Michael came back in (as Chloe escorted Carrie to her room) Ryoko said, “Where is Arsenal?”, and Michael said, “He’s gone,” Tenchi said, “should we go and find him?” Michael replied, “No, he will be fine.  If something happens he knows how to find his way back or call for me,” then they all sat down and continued to finish the rest of their dinner.
