“Are you sure? I’m pretty handy with filing,” she giggled a little. “If we’re not sent to the field getting attacked by monsters, we’re stuck in the note room, getting attacked by papercuts.”
Furrowing her brows in curiosity, she just nodded. “Hmm, I-I guess that’s possible. I’ve met a this group of kids who have the ability to turn into animals, and they say that sometimes the mind of the animal they’ve turned into would take over their own. Sometimes it’s a good thing, but there were times that they feared they might not turn back anymore…”
He raised an eyebrow a bit. “Your boss works you guys hard, huh? But doesn’t your work uniform have gloves?” He thought for a second. “If you really want to help with the filing, I guess you can help…..I need to get around to reinforcing that sign anyways…..and fix a few leaks we have here and there before storm season hits…..”
He tipped his fedora a bit. “I guess that makes sense……..Philip says there are cases of witches turning into birds and not turning back because of the small brain capacity….although I’m doubting that fact since witches aren’t real….”
“No pain, no gain, yes?” she offered with a cheeky grin. “And yes,” holding out her hands to show Shoutarou, she nodded, “but it’s very hard to manage papers with these things on, and though we’d love to have their protection, we need to take them off to be able to organize the papers and all. Oh, I can help with those too, if you’d like!”
Xion tilted her head, musing to herself silently. It seems like that fedora’s already a part of the man; she’s never seen him not wearing it. He’d tip it here and there once in a while, and Xion just found it… cool, for lack of better word. She didn’t know why though.
“Oh!” she blinked as she was brought back to attention at what Shoutarou had said. “But witches are real, Mr. Shoutarou.”
