[This has gone on long enough. Stein has a map showing the location of Kid, but no way to get there right at the moment. He's got to try other avenues before he puts his own people in danger.

And so he's knocking on the door of Birkin's lab, the one Stein gave him for his own exclusive use when they moved in at Stein's place, then opening the door.]

Can I ask you something?

[Birkin glances up from his desk, which is strewn with papers as usual. It looks a little like he was in the middle of attempting to organize his stuff, but he just sighs and figures it's not worth the effort right now.]

I'm a little tempted to say "I don't know, can you?" but I have a sinking feeling this is serious. Go ahead.

[Birkin was quiet for a minute. He wasn't a hundred percent sure of that answer either.]

Define "relationship".

I really don't know, maybe? It would probably depend on what I was asking him for and whether he'd care if I started crying.

And I'm guessing this is where I come in. Yeah, okay, I can try, but it's a toss-up on whether or not he'll actually go for my amazing fake crying.

[He snorts.] Think you could manage to convince Marie to let him screw her?

Eh, she'd probably still be pretty pissed at me if I used her as a bargaining chip, though. I'll see what I can't come up with instead, but Marie could always be my fallback.

And just so we're clear, I'm trying to get him to kidnap Kid away from the original kidnapper and bring him back here?

We could always pull a bait and switch with her? But no, I'll try and figure something else out first.

Now if you'll excuse me, [Birkin pulls his phone out of his pocket with a smirk] it's time for the master to get to work. I'll come find you when I'm done.

[Not too long after he gets off the phone with Giriko, Birkin finds Stein in one of the other labs.]

And the Oscar for Best Leading Actor goes to...

I was just on the phone. [Shrug] I didn't really have to. I-I... [He sobs, slightly over-dramatic about it] I'm convincing enough on my own.

But hook, line, and sinker he's more than willing to help out poor little defenseless me. On, uh, one condition that you need to take care of.

He wants a job here. And I told him you'd be happy to help facilitate that.

...Must've slipped his mind. Not that I blame him, that's not exactly the easiest bit of information to grapple with.

Why the hell did he tell you though?

That makes more sense... Good thing you and Henry are getting all buddy-buddy. [He rolls his eyes a bit]

Maybe that's why he was so reluctant to accept the offer when you made it. I wouldn't exactly be thrilled about the guy who was supposed to kill me offering be anything either.

I was friends with Wesker; if there's one thing on this earth that I know about, it's revenge and how people get insanely hung up about it. And yeah, I bet if he knew about the volcano thing ahead of time, he would have pulled back.

[Though Wesker probably would have tried again later, but Birkin can't quite bring himself to say that. He's done so well making Giriko seem like a nice guy, and he's just not ready to deal with being wrong if that really is Giriko's plan of action.]

So yeah, that's a reasonable assumption to make.

What a martyr you are, trusting so many dangerous criminals like this. [Birkin gives Stein a quick hug and fishes his phone out of his pocket.] Thanks. Gimme a second and this'll be all taken care of.
