-Inside Parts N' More-
Leona walked into the store and found that it was surprisingly empty at this time of day. The Wizard Saint wondered where all the customers were but soon dropped the line of thought to carry out her work for Dr. Reid. The Wizard Saint slowly walked to the counter at the back of the store, where Dr. Jacobson was looking at her every step of the way. Dr. Jacobson was wearing a gray long-sleeved shirt and black knee-length skirt. When Leona reached the halfway point the brunette raised a hand in greeting.
"Hello, Wizard Saint! What brings you here today?" Dr. Jacobson asked Leona as the blonde approached the counter. Leona said nothing until she reached the counter, then handed the paper to the doctor.
"I'm here to order a part on behalf of Dr. Reid. She says that everything you need to know is on the paper that I just gave you." Leona replied in a businesslike tone. The bespectacled brunette held the paper in both hands and began to read over it. A minute later she lowered it and smiled at Leona.
"I can order this part for Loretta. Let me go do that now." Dr. Jacobson said to Leona. The Wizard Saint nodded and watched Dr. Jacobson walk towards the door behind her, then enter the room. While she waited Leona turned around and faced the front of the store because her attention was drawn towards all the products on the shelves. She saw various advertisements for various computer brands, various computer parts like processors and graphics cards, and other computer-related items she did not fully understand the purpose of.
"OK, I've ordered the part for Loretta. Go and tell her that it should be here in a week or so. The key word is should." Dr. Jacobson told Leona after emerging from the back of the store roughly four minutes later. The Wizard Saint turned around and blinked when she heard the estimate of how long it would take the part to get here.
A week or so for just one part?
Leona was not sure why it would take that long, but that was not her concern now. She had delivered the message to Dr. Jacobson and the part Dr. Reid needed had been ordered. Now Leona's concern was going back to Motor City and letting Dr. Reid know that her friend had ordered the part she needed.
"All right, I'll go tell Dr. Reid that the part's been ordered and should be here in a week or so." Leona repeated back to the doctor.
"All right then, Wizard Saint. I won't hold you up any longer. Have a good day!" Dr. Jacobson bade her. Leona waved goodbye with her right hand, then turned to leave the store. Now she had to report her success to Dr. Reid.

"So, how did it go? Was Bridgette able to order the part?" Dr. Reid asked Leona while holding a mug of coffee and standing in front of the table. Leona stood in front of the counter next to the door and nodded.
"Yes, Dr. Reid. Dr. Jacobson ordered the part and it should arrive at Parts N' More in a week or so." Leona reported. Dr. Reid nodded in approval.
"Great. I've got plenty of other projects to keep me busy in the meantime, so waiting a week to resume repairing the Atlas isn't gonna bother me." Dr. Reid informed Leona that time was no issue for her. Leona was glad to hear that. If the doctor was not worried about how long it would take for the part to get to Parts N' More, then Leona was not worried either.
"That's all I needed your help for today, Leona. If anything else comes up, I'll let you know!" Dr. Reid informed the Wizard Saint that her work for today was finished. Leona nodded.
"I'll head back to Silver Wolf Guild Hall then. See you later, Doctor!" Leona said. The doctor nodded and Leona saw herself out of the doctor's laboratory. This job had not taken as long as she thought it would, but she was not complaining. It was easy work and today she liked easy work.
-Silver Wolf Guild Hall, Leona's Room, four hours later-
Leona entered her room and had just sat down on the edge of her bed to take off her boots when she saw another manila envelope slide under her door. Curious as to who had sent it, Leona stood up and walked over to the envelope, then picked it up and walked over to her desk. She carefully pulled Ses Revanche from her right boot, used it to open the envelope, set the dagger on the desk, and carefully pulled out the letter contained within the envelope. She wondered who the letter was from and what they needed from her.
