Winter was here, but as ever yet for snow to set foot in the Hidden Dune village on a cloudy early afternoon. Sayaka rested both of her feet on top of her desk, leaning back against her chair as both hands were behind her head. A blank expression, mostly out of boredom, took over her face as she stared out at the windows. She was set up for a more formal meeting, but her usual outfit would say otherwise. In the comforts of her own village and her own people, what other reason would she have for throwing on a dress? She'd automatically assume that it wouldn't cause too much problems since it was her default attire. It was what she was comfortable with, so she had no need to switch. Even when she did have a few dresses that screamed sophisticated, her usual outfit was best fit to her.
Just a few hours ago Sayaka requested an assistant to work closely with her and assist her with paperwork. To her surprise, there was already a couple applications submitted and she looked through all of them. Sure, their resumes were full of determination and confidence of obtaining such a position, but she had to be careful. She knew all too well of how people would use the opportunity to not only get closer to Sayaka, but also her disturbing past and trying to "expose" her dirtiest secrets that ranged from her murdering genin over a decade ago to her parents' businesses involved in illegal trading. Sayaka had no choice but to "silence" her previous assistants that attempted to get her impeached from a position she knew well she deserved. No doubt that the previous assistants' positions being "pulled" for them might've rose a few eyebrows, but she would only brush it off as a coincidence.
Why did Sayaka wanted yet another assistant after knowing that the pattern would continue for as long as she'd still be Sunakage? No clue. She couldn't do everything by herself. After all, someone had to tend to duties that would be best fit for someone else. At the same time, it was always entertaining to toy with someone that thought they had the upperhand in exposing Sayaka when she was above all else. Her only wish was that people would learn to stick to what their assigned with and not try to close the limits of what they can and can't do. All of her past assistants were professional, confidence, bold with their words and actions, and much more that she had minor admiration in.
But this applicant managed to catch the Sunakage's attention. Akuro Oka was her name. From what Sayaka has read from her application and has gathered, she was a sweetheart but can apparently get scary when she's angry. Now that was something she would look forward to and would be the judge of. She was also a genin, which was interesting since Sayaka would be expecting higher ranks to work side by side with her, but who was she to try and discriminate by rank? As long as anyone was up for the challenge of working with Sayaka, she couldn't see why she couldn't want to not hire anyone... weak, she'll put it. In fact, it got her excited to the point where a smile flashed across her face and lick her lips in anticipation.
Right now, the only thing she had to do was wait, but could only hope this Akuro child doesn't make Sayaka wait for too long. Things could get a little messy if such a scenario occurred.
