"Yeah, probably, but I've still got some things I need to get done,"
Captain of the Second Division
Midori explained and began piling a few things up on her desk to make it look more organized, "I'm taking a break for now though. If you want to head outside to talk, we can."
If Erika was coming to her, there was a reason for it. The two weren't exactly close, so Erika probably needed someone to talk to, which was fine with Midori. How else do you get to know someone? Midori set her glasses on the table and turned back to Erika, motioning toward the door so she'd step out first. "Come on. Let's go."
she said before closing up her office and heading outside of the building toward some outside lounge areas.
Midori led Erika to a garden like area. It was mostly for those in recovery to walk around and get some exercise and sun, but it was a nice place to relax. The decorative stone paths weaved through perfectly green grass, each path leading in and out of areas with stone tables for people to relax at. Midori sat down at one of these empty tables, waving to one of her subordinates as they passed by. "So, what's going on?"
she said, starting up the conversation. To her surprise, a pleasant one, Erika just asked about something more personal. Was this just a regular casual meeting? "How did she and I meet?"
Midori repeated and thought on it. Her face dulled and then she chuckled."That... That's a story."
Midori shook her head, a light blush of embarrassment on her cheeks as the memory replayed in her head, "Some guy was asking me out and your Mother liked him and I could tell, so I said somethin' like... 'We aren't ever happening; she's hotter anyway, so go for her' and he did, which pretty much screwed his chances with either of us. What a jerk..."
Midori shook her head again, chuckling more at the memory.
