Gage hadn't told the rest of his team, but he'd planned to meet up with Lorelei after their team disbanded. A little one-on-one time was needed to see if all the sparks they'd felt over the last few years were the real thing. He'd deliberately avoided getting involved with anyone he worked with, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. Until all the team is decimated ...
Lorelei was in Manchester, hoping to run into Gage, but after a car accident that sent her to hospital with an injured leg, she had no idea what had happened to the others, until Terk contacted her. Once he realized what had befallen her, he figured out that her accident was likely no accident and probably the same potential annihilation that his team had experienced. Terk coaxes Lorelei to live in their temporary new headquarters, where she finds out Gage hadn't contacted her by choice but because he couldn't.
Now on the mend, Gage is determined to keep her safe, only that's much easier said than done, as the attacks turn on her and just ... won't ... stop.
