Sebille sighed.


The day hadn't really been to her liking.


She'd had a day off but Fenrir nor Null had been around and she'd been bored. She still was.


Very bored.


And tomorrow would be another busy day at the agency. Not pleasant at all.

"How nice to hear how much thought you put into giving it to me then"
