Captain of the Second Division
It was in the afternoon when Shio Mora's appointment was going to come up. Midori had prepared for this in one way, by making sure she went to lunch first. She was going to need energy to deal with this one, especially if his behavior hadn't changed since the last time they talked. Hopefully, however, he had time to think and decided to give their sessions a chance.
It is because of this that Midori didn't come from the usual hallway to call Shio. She instead came from the back entrance and walked into the waiting room from the opposite direction. Seeing Shio sitting there, she waved, smiled, and motioned for him to follow. "Good afternoon, Shio. How have you been since our last talk?"
she asked as they walked down the hallway and into her office. She closed the door behind him like usual and then sat behind her desk, allowing him to choose wherever he wanted to sit. There was a nice comfortable chair or a long leather bed that he could lay on.
"So, this is the first of our sessions. As you know, I did not pull you from duty. I do not want to interrupt your normal life. I am also very glad you decided to talk to me and I am hoping I can help you feel more calm as time goes on. I do ask that you keep an open mind and try to open up to me as well." With that, she watched him for a moment to gauge his mood. She wanted to know what she'd be dealing with this time and had to figure out a way to make him feel at ease. There was no reason for him to be tense, but how to show him that? Telling wouldn't work. He had to see it, to feel it. "So, anything new?"
