Part of being in charge of the entire education system on the colony was there were a lot of educational needs that had to be met. It wasn’t just the children but adults entering college for the first time or wanting to take classes just for the pure joy of learning or maybe for their job. Also Karina was determined to get her apprenticeship program up and running before the new building was finalized. Oed V was changing and evolving on a daily basis, due in majority part to the terraforming team. She’d made an appointment with the Director of Terraforming and now she was headed to the Science and Terraforming wing of the Rabbitus Memorial School building where she worked. Stepping into the office she smiled at the officer in the lobby and introduced herself. “Good Morning. My name is Karina Enger. I’m the Education Director. I have a meeting with Mirembe M’Ahar.”

Shortly before Karina waltzed into their humble Terraforming abode, a pair of bright-eyed office assistants sat bickering about the latest episode of the primetime drama, Space Tyranny.

“I’m convinced that mystery man is Siazun’s father,” asserted a stout ginger man, whose crooked smile cast an impish glint about his features. “Why else would he be lurking around her shop * doing ‘small favours’? Besides, he’s way too interested in her family to be some stranger.”

“He can’t be!” Scowled his Andorian friend. “Siazun’s father died of Xenopolycythemia, like, ages ago.”

“Maybe he faked his death,” the ginger shrugged. “Don’t you think his ‘death’ was a little too convenient, Ivare? I mean… right before Hasu was going to expose him as a CEREBUS spy, really?”

“That’s not…” Ivare’s lips parted in protest, but their coworker’s frantic thumb jabs at the door silenced them.

“Hello!” He greeted Karina, a broad grin playing across his lips. “Let’s check…” he typed in a few commands, searching the schedule for her name. “There you are! I’ll let Mirembe know you’re here. Feel free to head back.”

Ivare, trying to recover from their close brush with embarrassment, gestured to the open door just a few metres down the hall.

Karina nodded her thanks with a smile and headed down the hallway, but right before she was out of sight she turned back. “Mystery man is not her father. That is the gardener. The man who died was his twin.” With a chuckle she headed down the corridor. She had absolutely no idea for sure. She never watched such things until she came to Oed and Jodar and Rondara had left. She’d had time on her hands and had found herself watching out of curiosity. The other teachers loved it. However, Karina did know plot and great literature. It was also fun to throw a monkey wrench in the works. Reaching the door she knocked and upon being admitted she walked over to the woman in the office and held out her hand. “Thank you for seeing me, Director.”

A collective gasp and a slow descend into further bickering echoed behind Karina.

Mirembe peeled her gaze from a biodome schematic perched on the adjacent display. As soon as Karina stepped in, a smile warped any semblance of concentration that plagued her freckled features. “Director Enger!” M’Ahar rose, her moniker gesture mimicking an open book, apropos for the director’s role. Alas, her companion’s synthetic drawl didn’t quite catch her enthusiasm. “Welcome. Please,” she grasped Karina’s hand in a brief, hearty shake and jabbed her head at an empty chair, “have a seat and tell me what brings you to this side of campus.”

Karina smiled and touched the tips of her finger to her chin and moved the hand outward toward M’Ahar. “Thank You.” Karina took a seat. She knew some FSL as her people didn’t have their own spoken language and the use of sign helped as they learned. She was not, however, fluent. “The governor was tasked me with restructuring the entire education system of the colony. From our youngest children through university and beyond. So I have come to ask for your input. My first question being what continuing education or enrichment courses would you like to see offered to help your department?”
