Apr. 20th, 2005 @ 05:06 pm Meeting with Eskevar
Arica knocked on the door to the office that the new counselor had occupied. Jack had told her that he came highly recommended and that he seemed to be pleasant enough, which was about as high a compliment as the man could get from Jack.

Eric had offered to be there with her, and Jack would have let him, but she needed to do this herself.

Eskevar had just finished changing his shirt and slacks with a spare he had brought when there was the knock at the door. The filth of the room had astonded him, and almost ruined his nice green shirt. His blue long sleeved dress shirt was loosely rolled to the elbows and the top button was unbuttoned, showing his white undershirt. The blue of his eyes held a look deepness that he used when doing a face-to-face counseling session.

Eskevar walked the short distance to the door and opened it, revealing the lady standing outside. He motioned her in, holding the door open for her. "Good afternoon, come inside and have a seat. I'm still rearanging the furniture, but it's almost done." He almost paused, but continued. "I'm Eskevar."

Arica studied him for a long moment before moving inside or even introducing herself. He seemed nice enough. "Hi, I'm Arica. Jack said I could come see you," she said softly as she stepped inside.

"A pleasure to meet you." He pulled a chair out for her. "I haven't had a chance to meet all of the agents yet, Jack just gave me a brief name list but not much else." Eskevar sat down and leaned slightly back.

"I think everyone's just getting settled in and used to the place. I'm not really an agent though," she added, sitting down and looking around warily.

"Ah yes, Arica Weiss, I remember the name now." He leaned forward slightly. "Since most people who normally come to my office do so out of need, I must try your patience and ask you if you are here out of need." His voice softened and lowered slightly out of deference to the partially open door behind Arica.

She nodded. "You've read the reports about what happened to me." Half statement, half-question.

"There was something about panic attacks, but that's about it. Bouts of panic or anxiety that are very intense are fairly common among the public at large. In this setting, with the company and all, they can be very bad." He returned from the slight discourse to her semi-question. "Do these panic attacks seem to happen at certain times of stress?"

She nodded. "And I have insomnia pretty bad... and flashbacks." She didn't mean to be so curt but she wasn't terribly comfortable with him yet. "It's gotten a lot more frequent since I got pregnant again."

Eric knocked on the counselor's office door. Jack had asked him to come visit the man. A few years ago, he would have fought it, but he knew it was likely about Arica and her needs. Nothing else was more important to him. "You wanted to see me?" Eric asked, looking around the office.

Welcome Eric!

Eskevar stood and motioned him into the room. "Yes, I was wanting to meet with all of the agents over the course of the next week or so and get to know all of you."

Eric stepped inside and took a seat. "Yeah, that's probably smart. I'm sure Jack will be thrilled with that idea." He paused. "Arica said she met with you yesterday."

"Yes, she did." He paused for a moment, "I, obviously, can't say anything about what we talked about. However, I do think you are in a position to help me with her mental and emotional states." He grinned, his pale yellow eyes glowing. "Or, I'm in a position to help you if you will."

"As for what you talked about, that's between you and her. I tried to interfere once and I won't do it again. And I think we can help each other. What do you need from me?"

"Well first off I would say that we need to explore your feelings and thoughts." Eskevar motioned for him to sit and then sat behind the desk. "Beyond that we need to work through any negative emotional responses that you may have regarding her. What I personally, off-the-record, think is that one of the underlying problems is her sense of insecurity. Mainly centered around you and your job."

"Okay," Eric replied, taking a seat. "I do what I can," he said. "I know she's not thrilled with my job, especially since moving to CTU... but I'm away from that now. And what do you mean by my 'negative emotional responses'?"
