Clarissa partially let go of Lucy, apologizing to her and Ophellia for touching the younger girl. But when she realized that Ophellia had meant Lucy was sick, she relaxed slightly and had gone try and explain that she was a carrier. Though before she could, soul started shouting.
Clarissa held Lucy tighter once more and hid her face in the little girl's hair, not sure if she was trying to comfort Lucy or herself. When he pointed her out and scolded her, Clarissa flinched and said nothing. She knew better than to talk back or disobey the white coats so she fell silent and took a deep breath, letting it out slowly as she tried to calm herself down. Suddenly the robot thing wasn't the only scary one. Soul. . . He . . . He might not be so different from the others like she thought.

As soon as Lucy was on the ground Clarissa fell to her knees and drew the smaller girl into her lap, running a hand through her hair as she held Lucy protectively, "are you alright?" She asked, still a bit frantic and shaken by what had just happened.

Clarissa sort of panicked when Lucy was pulled away from her. She stood up quickly, nearly falling as she did so and frantically repeated what soul had said earlier when the thing had tried to attack her as well.
"Um. . . 'Force primary directive Alex 1 1.'' she sputtered, having no clue what it meant or what it would do. She just hoped it would help and make the robot thing stop.

Clary jumped a bit not quite expecting the child to touch her. She hadn't even noticed the little girl until now. But she opened her eyes as Lucy put her head in her lap. Clarissa was hesitant to touch her. She wasn't acting like she was infected. . . She didn't want risk changing that. "I-I'm sorry " she murmured, "but you shouldn't touch me. You could get sick okay sweetie?" She murmured in a warm, gentle voice though she cringed as another desperate scream was heard from one of the test subjects locked up a few rows away from them. Clary smiled at the little girl and and covered her hand with the sleeve of the lab coat soul had put on her earlier. "We just be careful." She said softly.

Clary closed her eyes and covered her ears. It had been so nice to be away from here. Away from the cries and screams of the other subjects who were still alive. Not to mention the scent of rotting flesh and spoiled food that hung thick in the air, almost enough to make her gag after the small taste of fresh air she'd had earlier. The electricity was still up since the facility was powered by solar energy so at the very least there was light. But still, this room, this place. . . It made her skin crawl and her stomach twist into knots. . . She hated it. Hated how everyone was suffering. Hated that she couldn't do a single thing about it.
So she just sat, eyes tightly shut and her hands over her ears, dark hair falling to hide her face though surely she looked as upset as she felt. She didn't want to be here anymore.
