Laund, looked up the stairs and , rolled her eyes, as she thought to herself "Why do these stairs always seem endless?" as she started the long climb up the white marbled stairs truding one by one upwards like a mountain climber, till finally she reached the summit, smiling to herself she grasped one of the gilded doors and swung it open carefully so as not to make any loud racket as it moved and she walked into the open lobby of the academy,
She closed closed the door slowly behind her as she walked up to the attendant, and presented her Identification/ personnel card, which the attendant gladly looked over and compared to a small index in her sign-in book, smiling graciously she said "Sign Here Ms Laund"
She signed her name and looking up asked the attendant "Is there any mail for me today, or any sent to my office?"
The attendant said "One Moment, Ms Launde I will check" she riffled threw some papers and opened a drawer or two.
A moment later she said with a slightly sour face "Yes & No" ...."A parcel was sent to your residence in care of a Dr. Kouse from the Alberian Peninsula, but it was marked to be sent to either you a Ms Laund or Sir, Longier your Father" so ......."It seems the parcel when to your residence instead of your desk for some odd reason, perhaps because of the double postmark with you and your father's name it was decided best sent there" she shook her head a bit confused and befuddled.
"Its okay,": she smiled back at the attendant "You couldnt have done anything about where it was headed any more than I could have in this situation" she nodded and said "If there isnt any more mail then I will head to my office and do some reasearch in case anymore mail comes , please let me know, okay?"
"Thank You Ms Laund for being kind and not being angry with me" and she nods her reply agreeing to tell her if any more mail comes for her while she is doing research.
Walking down the corridor she looks at the many pictures of past and recent Doctors and Associates of the Academy, The Wall Of Fame as it is jokingly called.
So many people have walked these halls and been both Directors and even a few have been Head or Deen of the Academy at different points in its long History, including the present Director and Master of Records, Daddy , her father Sir Longier Mcnally.
Her picture as well is along the Hall Of Fame, be it an old picture now, with a dated hairstyle and her older glasses she wore, even still she was proud to be among the few and proud Dr's and Associates of The Del Rosa. Academy.
She smiled proudly and held her head high, as she finally came around a corner to her office, standing at her office door, DR. LAUND A.P.A ( Ancient / Paleo Archaeology.
Nodding at the reading of her credentials she took the door handle and opened the dark finished oak door and stepped inside, walking to her desk and started to look and pour threw her papers and also her ancient and rather large book she had carried this whole way without much thought of it till now,
More coming soon, when I come back............
