The sun slowly moved past its zenith and started making headway into the afternoon. A curtain hung drifting in and out of an open window in one of the third floor offices to help cool the room. Inside was a modern furnishing office with a padded desk chair, two desks, rows of filing drawers along the wall. The two large differences between the desks was that one had a spring themed ikebana arrangement brightening up the room while the other had a mound of paperwork hiding a desk phone underneath it. Two piles of papers sat of similar height with a filing tray of letters. Binders stacked by month and divided by day within them had their spines facing the lone office worker staring at two papers before one; one formally written and the other a drafted script sheet."Does it work like this?"
Suishoku rubbed the metal extender part of her pen into her forehead while trying to decipher the penmanship of a student in a stack of reports. She sat working in just her blouse and skirt while the jacket of her Elite uniform rested folded up on one of the cabinets. Among teacher assignments sent to her were also mission reviews written by students. Judging from this paper, this person wasn't exactly through nor even descriptive of the events that happened. These were the tells of ones who value strategy or have taken the time to scout out their surroundings a little. No matter how ill the page looked of making sense, she still took the time to record what key things did take place. What helped in this handicap was the reports from the ninjas that keep tabs on students. She would know after getting a few letters or so before about her mission performances. It's thanks to these more official reports would she be able to perform this part in a system of checks in the validity of students. To think that this
is how the paperwork was really handled behind the scenes."So...proof that light smuggling was found. Combative action taken. Officials arrived shortly after."
The summary picked apart from imaginary bullet points. Having coming to that conclusion, Suishoku wrote down her thoughts toward the student in how to improve his mission debrief reports. Unknown to her if the person has suffered any injuries from the skirmish or if the person was lazy, she wrote down a suggestion of keeping the notes given to accurate moments. A report has more value in the details it provides than the length of personal achievements. "Hopefully they'll learn to put a bit more effort when striving for minimalist entries."
The pen clicked shut as she wrote her response to be delivered later in a pile next to the Bugei school seal stamp. A stack of letters that had to be signed, sealed, and delivered to each one. This part was thankfully taken care off with staffed teachers who mix it in the students mail. After finishing her last of twelve letters that needed delivery, Suishoku sighed in her desk chair and opened the side drawers to take out another letter. Her mouth twisted to a frown that her current work pile has been dragging its delivery longer than needed. "I should resort to calling him,"
she groaned when thinking on the last few times it got failed to deliver. One of which was forgetting the damn thing in the office after closing up and the office key was back in her dorm.
With the deadline drawing nearer, she had to settle for a some inelegant options. Taking her phone from her skirt pocket, she set it out on the desk and dialed out in speaker so she won't lose pacing with her own paperwork. If the desk work wasn't done then it'll grow twice as high the next time around.
The dial tone rolled for a few turns before she could hear a familiar voice on the other end. She smiled weakly at this bad attempt and tried to act cheerful under the circumstances. "Hi! Am I catching you at a bad training time?"
She laughed a bit as training may as well could have been grinding exp in a game. "I'm a bit tied up at the office to do lunch since leaving this morning's lectures. If you aren't doing anything, think stopping by here wouldn't be too much trouble? I'd like your thoughts on a few things."Nobuyumi
