Kioku and the girls arrived at the office of Nara Kotaza, an old friend of Kioku. It had been some time since he saw her last, and while the meeting was scheduled, the old coot kept his name off the record so that it would be a surprise. But there was a greater purpose that day. The girls were interested in the academy and the best person he knew to answer their questions was the headmistress herself.
"Don't worry you two. The decision is always up to you, I'm not going to force you into this life like most who join the academy. This is your choice. " he comforted, his large hands rested on both their heads before ruffling their hair. Setsuna was visibly perturbed as she yanked herself away from him to reach up and straighten the mess he made. A hearty laugh followed before the secretary let him know it was all right to go inside.
Kioku nodded his head with a smile and held up a finger towards the girls. "Just give me one moment, I'll call for you in a moment." he said before moving inside.
Whatever reactions there were, it was obviously jovial. Though, most encounters with Kio-papa were often that way. He didn't really know how to make or even keep enemies. "...to see you again! Yes yes! Tea would be lovely. But first, I have an introduction to make. Girls! Would you please come in?" he called.
Setsuna quickly shuffled in with a small smile on that cute little face. She remembered her lessons about manners taught to her by Kioku and gave a bow that was far more respectable than most people even dared to attempt in the village. "Good to meet you!" chimed the young lady.
Kioku watched them enter with pride on his face, at least when Setsuna bowed. Masaoko on the other hand no doubt had to work on her manners here in a place that was much different where they were from. It was clear the pair still had to work on their english. Kioku figured now was not good a time to educate them on their mistakes, it would be embarrassing for them. Instead, he nodded his head in approval when Setsuna looked to him to make sure she did all right.
"These are the Sanageyama sisters. Setsuna and Masaoko. They are here because they have some questions about the academy." he said, gesturing to each of them as he said their names.
