Week 92: Dragging mud through your shiny HQ

Post  Cassidy Appelo on Tue May 12, 2015 12:03 am

Cassidy Appelo arrived at Oracle HQ tired and still filthy from the trip. Still, it was nice to see buildings again. And PEOPLE. And TECHNOLOGY.
She dragged herself into the lobby and looked about, blinking. She wanted a million showers, to start with. She wanted food. And sleep. The light was still too harsh for her, and she was painfully concious of how disgusting she looked right now; other people might judge that kind of thing. People liked cleanliness, right? She stood in the lobby and sighed for a moment before moving further in.

Beats bloody Australia though.

Amets stepped out of the lift which descended into the bowels of the Earth, as well as the main area of Oracle HQ, moving a cart with a large computer work station strapped to it. She was finally moving out of her office, and frankly was glad to have somewhere else to go. Just before she rounded the corner towards the front doors, her nose twitched as a wave of...old smells rushed over her. She sighed, and stepped out from around the corner, confident as to who she was going to meet from the smell.

"Ah, agent Tsukuda, could I get you to give me a ha..." she stopped when she saw that the individual was not Silvia. "Ah, my apologies, I was expecting someone else. Are you a new agent?" she asked. Amets was fairly thin and average looking for an agent; in fact she looked more like a normal human.

Cassidy looked her up and down, taking in the fact that someone was SPEAKING to her, a new colleague perhaps? How exciting. After a while she realised she'd probably been staring slightly longer than was comfortable and forced her mouth into action.
"Yes. I think. Probably... Yes. I work here now. Hello. I'm Cassidy. Who're you?"
She tilted her head slightly, ready to process conversation. As she spoke she fiddled with her shirt, trying to make it look more... Something. It didn't do much.

Amets' eyes were drawn to the shirt fiddling before returning to the taller woman's face. She noted the bags around the eyes, the somewhat sorry clothes, and the underfed look of Cassidy. "Amets Basamortu." she said simply as she put her hand out for the other agent to shake. "You appear to have had an interesting time reaching here." She said, sounding sympathetic.

"Hah. Yes, you could say that. Cassidy Appelo... No wait I said that already."
She wiped her hand on her trousers before reaching out to accept the offered handshake, and flashed a brief smile. "I'm fresh out of Australia, it was a long trip... I think here will be a lot more fun." She hesitated before gesturing at the cart; "Moving huh? I'm just moving in myself."

Amets noted that the wiping motion actually resulted in more grime covering the other agent's hand, but still shook hands without any glimpse of disgust. "Australia? Being more fun that can't be too hard." She sounded slightly curious. "And yes. One enters, one leaves, apparently."

She shifted the cart around slightly so it wasn't in between the two agents.

Cassidy blinked as the cart moved, watching it's motion. "Anything is more fun than wandering around a cave. How is living, uh, here?"
She had begun doing a nervous little dance with her feet as she spoke, obviously not used to this length of conversation, but loathe to cut short this human interaction she had so missed.

Amets gave a very slight shrug. "It will almost certainly be like nowhere else you've ever worked. There's no team, just a disparate group, the wages are practically obscene and a few weeks ago a rank 1 agent swore at the CEO and walked out his office without a scratch. It is a bizarre work place."

Her eyes briefly swept over the other agent's mud covered frame. "Likely more luxurious than a Free State cave, but quite possibly more dangerous, particularly on missions. Just by joining you've pissed off pretty much every major group in the world."

She paused for a moment. "Welcome to Oracle, by the way."

Cassidy grinned again. "Thanks. It sounds entertaining at least, I never did like to stay safe too long. Field work was always my thing, even if it does end up... messy"
Her face fell for a moment, and she looked away quickly. "I'm looking forward to something new. And I don't care a bit about pissing people off. But first I should clean up. Um. I'm not too familiar with this place yet..."
Her sentence trailed off and ended with a questioning look at the more experienced agent as Cassidy gestured widely to try and indicate the whole country.

Amets nodded. "The offices here have en-suite bathrooms, since they double as living areas. I'm not sure about the overall availability of offices, but I am currently in the process of moving out of mine. You can use my shower while I continue removing my possessions." Her eyes briefly scanned Cassidy's body. "You can finish with the toiletries in there. It'll be less things to move."
