After a very long day signing mountains of paperwork, Misokura decided to walk to her dorm room and study for her annual welcome speech. She walked down the stairs-- entranced within the paper of the well written words she would be saying in front of the new cadets joining the task force. "Welcome!" she shouted. She placed her index finger lightly against her lips and pursed them slightly, "No, no." she grumbled to herself, "That doesn't sound right at all." she continued to chant to herself, but suddenly stumbled into Saruske who was walking in the hall also. "Oof!" he grunted as they both collapsed to the floor-- papers scattering about. Misokura quickly jumped to her feet and hastily picked up the pages. "I'm so sorry, I was reading this book and--" he lost his words as he gazed upon the flustered Misokura. Her eyes suddenly gazed into his and they sat there for what seemed like an eternity. They both began to blush as she tucked away the papers into her coat pocket and helped him to his feet. He scratched the back of his head-- a bit embarrassed, but managed a smile. "Where are you headed?" he asked curiously. She looked away from his eyes, trying to fight her face from tinting red. "I was headed towards my dorm room." she said. He nodded then brushed back the bangs of her hair. "Your hair is getting longer, Misoku." he chuckled. She pulled away from him and quickly clutched at her hair. "I need to cut it again..." she muttered. "But you look so cute." he snickered. Her face was tainted with a bright pink as she looked at him. "Oh!" Saruske reached in his pocket and handed her a small bag. "This is for you." he chuckled. She took the bag and smiled, "What's this for?" "Well, I never got a chance to thank you for saving me, so I made you some cookies." he explained. She nodded and smiled at him. He began to blush then walked with her to the edge of the stairs. "I got to head back to Headquarters." he said "Commander Mao has been having a fit lately." he grumbled. He walked down the stairs, then turned to her and smiled, "I'll see you later, k?" he then turned his back to her and disappeared into the evening light. Misokura smiled also once more and walked back to the dorms.
