Bound for Trouble (Zero/Iris)Morning came again, and Iris was in a good mood. Her sleep was restful and free of dreams, and Zero wasn’t around to bother her. Not only that, Ciel would be well enough to go back to work today if she was lucky. Iris hummed happily as she got herself ready. She could feel that today was going to be a good day.
When she opened her door to leave, her attitude did an about-face. Standing in her way was Zero. Iris tried very hard not to groan.
“What is it, Zero?” she asked through clenched teeth. “If you have business with me, you’d best finish it soon, because I do not have the time or patience to deal with you.”
“Fine. This will only take a second,” he replied. Before Iris could even think, Zero snatched her right hand and clamped a metal object around her wrist, just below her wristband. There was a resounding click as the object locked securely into place. Iris’s eyes grew to the size of saucers.
“No,” she began.
Kidnapped (Zero/Iris)It was a well-known fact in the Resistance base that Ciel was incredibly strong-willed. Despite her young age, she had bravely faced and overcome more challenges than most people would in their entire lives. That strong will came along with stubbornness, and Ciel would continuously push herself to the limit even though doing so was detrimental to her health.

The scientist had caught a bad case of stomach flu and was vomiting to the point where she couldn’t keep anything down, but she still insisted on trying to run her operation. It was a wonder Ciel could even move given how ill she was.
“Dr. Ciel, for the last time: You. Need. Rest,” said Iris.
“Can’t…rest…” Ciel moaned deliriously. “Got to--Urk!”
Iris grimaced as Ciel leaned over the bucket beside her bed and puked for the umpteenth time. There was almost nothing in her stomach left to expel,
The Hypocrite and the Jerk (Zero/Iris)One evening, as Iris enjoyed a small meal of E-crystals in her room, she heard a knock at her door.
“Come in,” she beckoned. The door opened, revealing the visitor. “Z-Zero? What are you doing here?”
“I wanted to talk to you,” Zero replied.
“Oh. Um, have a seat then.” Zero sat beside Iris on her bed. The female Reploid gave him a questioning look. “What did you want to talk to me about?”
“I want to know why you spend so much of your time working,” Zero responded.
“It’s not just me. Everyone’s been busier since you showed up, Zero.”
“That’s not what I meant and you know it. The only reason you’re not working now is because your energy levels dropped so low that you nearly shut down on the spot.”
