Shenohl stopped the ground rover just outside the front entrance to the looming and impressive Terraforming Building. Though Starfleet had long ago handed over the reins to the civilian’s of OED, influences made still remained. The building reeked of Starfleet from every pore. Not just the building, but the entire city. Blue antennas flickered back and forth as his anxiety and ire grew just being near everything these people stood for and accountability they would never own. If it wasn’t for his concern for Rex, he wouldn’t be here, not now, not ever. Waiting patiently for his passenger to disembark, he counted being entering and leaving the office building. Once she cleared the vehicle, he pulled away slowly and cautiously. For this part, Jo was on her own.

Ferengi Jo as she was lovingly called by friends slid down the opening of the rovers door. The drop seemed like it went on for an hour before her tiny short legs finally landed on solid ground. Dressed, yes fully dressed, in denim coloured trousers, a long sleeved red and blue flannel shirt, brown leather looking boots with yellow sunflowers, brown belt with a silver coloured belt buckle as large as a dinner plate with a gold star with a white long brimmed hat decorated with a turquoise stone, Jo looked way up tilting her head taking in the building. After Shenohl moved the vehicle away, Jo, which much determination in every step, made her way to the front door and entered as soon as the doorway was clear.

Jo approached the front desk and tapped with a long fingernail, “I need to see the director. It’s urgent. Please.”

OOC: Thanks for the bump! :)

Dunn peeled his attention from the monitor to a flannel-adorned woman with a casual smile that faltered when he sensed the determination in her voice. His instinct was to direct her to Ra-Mhadreii’s office, no questions asked, but he hesitated. Dunn didn’t know this woman, nor had he been there long enough to know past relationships between the Terraforming Department and citizens. Were there quarrels? Partnerships? There wasn’t much to go on except her ‘urgent’ need to ‘see the director’. Had something happened outside the city? He wasn’t sure, but the scenarios his overactive imagination constructed encouraged him to tap the comms.

“Director Ra-Mhadreii…” he wavered until he heard their curt acknowledgement, “I have someone who claims to have an urgent matter to discuss with you. Do you want me to send her in?”

“Urgent, how?” Ra-Mhadreii asked before dismissing their question. “I will be right there, Mr. Dunn.”

“Understood,” Dunn answered, earning him a ‘thank you’ in return. He tugged his finger from the comm and turned to the woman, “Director Ra-Mhadreii will be with you shortly.”

An Efrosian soon appeared from the small corridor that connected the lobby to a row of offices. Their airy, patchwork tunic and wide-leg pants made them seem like they belonged in the library or studio. But, the uncompromising intelligence in their blue-white eyes detracted from the gentleness of their appearance and expression. Ra-Mhadreii approached the woman in steady stride, acknowledging Dunn with a light not, and turned fully to her. “Hir Ra-Mhadreii,” they skipped the pleasantries of a handshake and gestured for her to walk with them, “please introduce yourself and tell me about why you’re here.”

OOC: Sorry about that. My laptop (which is practically brand new) takes ages to get going, which makes me unmotivated to write. I am giving up and taking it to the shop, so might be awhile before I post again. Great post though! You are an incredibly talented writer and story teller –Ty

IC: Jo hooked her thumbs into her belt loops and stood with her boot covered feet spread several centimetres apart looking at the director from top to bottom. Maybe this was a mistake. Maybe she should have gone to the police. Or kept her mouth shut. The Ferengi woman hesitated for a few more seconds before dropping her shoulders and hands back to her side. Taking a few steps, she finally answered the questions put forth by the director. “Friends call me Jo. Let’s leave it at that. I work out at one of your Terraforming Camps. Way out. Took us nearly two days by ground transport to get here. One of the engineers, really our only engineer, has gone missing. We haven’t seen her in about two weeks now. I am really worried about her, but I think you should at least know. In case someone is looking for her, I guess.”
