( for Jay and I)
A mass of black hair sunk further into her office chair, tired eyes trying to focus on the report she was trying to type for her supervisor. However, it was made difficult by the teen sitting on the edge of her desk, talking amiably to the air, though the conversation, she supposed, was supposed to be directed at her She sighed, bringing the teen's attention; Theta Sigma, an alien menace to the lower ranked members of NYC UNIT for several months now; her coworkers, the younger ones anyways, seemed to find him easy to get along with and laid back, but she couldn't see this at all; he was no better at being quiet than her own 7 year old son back home.
"Theta, don't you have something better to do?"
The Timelord dropped the piece of ginger colored hair he was trying to braid (it was a tad short for braiding, yet), frowning and shugging in response. His answer came out in a distinct Australian accent, though as he talked it wavered between sounding a bit English or American.
"Not really; all the people I normally travel with are off doing school and work and the such, so I just... started hanging out here" he grinned "not that here is a bad place! You still remember the mock-Thresh Festival last month-?"
"Yes, I remember" more like, she remembered how the reports she'd been working on for a few days had been soaked by a water balloon, thrown by a coworker in a nearby cubicle.
"Look, why don't you do something productive, like a UNIT case?" she brought up some old UNIT archives on her computer, and clicked on one randomly; they were all dropped cases, but the teen didn't need to know that. She just needed to give him something to do so he'd go already and leave her to finish her work before her shift was over. The case highlighted something along the Miami river in Ohio, a sighting from several people of a young lizard or frog man; they'd originally thought it could have been an extraterrestrial, but after a year or so of no news from the area, even when they sent some agents out to investigate it, they'd concluded it was a false alarm.
"there was a possible extraterrestial spotted in ohio a few weeks ago, and we've been needing someone to go investigate it; think you could, since you're so lacking of things to do?" Theta frowned, glancing up at the folder the file was in; dropped cases. Never the less, he smiled reassuringly at the woman as if he actually believed it was an important, active case.
"Of course! See ya, er, Jessica was it?"
Jessica nodded, grabbing the phone by her computer and quickly punching in a number "Yeah? This is Jess. Who's the closest junior unit to Loveland, Ohio? ... okay, let him know that there's someone coming over to help work on an old case. It'll provide him with some field experience, anyhow. The scientific aids always seem to need more of that"
The risk I took was calculated, but man am I bad at math
