-Silver Wolf Guild Hall, Leona's room, thirty-five minutes later-
Thirty-five minutes later and two cups of coffee later Leona was still no closer to making a decision than she had been when she left her room to go to the guild cafe. The blonde supposed that she would need to give the matter a little more thought, but she was not sure how long Mr. Bank's offer would be good for before he rescinded it. That put pressure on her to decide and decide soon, but that could wait because she was a bit tired from all the traveling she had done. Leona decided to go to sleep and see if she could not make a decision tomorrow.
With that Leona took off her boots, set them under her bed, and walked over to her wardrobe. She opened it up, grabbed her green tank top, took off her green outfit top, and put on the tank top before closing the wardrobe. She then walked over to the bed and reclined on it. She began staring at the ceiling for a few minutes until she went to sleep, which was easier than she thought it would be despite having had two cups of coffee less than an hour ago. Leona was not complaining, though. Every once in awhile it was nice to have something go smoothly for a change.
-The next day, Leona's room, 9:00 A.M.-
Leona was not sure how many hours of sleep she had gotten because she did not keep track of how long she slept, but it was enough for her to wake up without any difficulty. Now that she was awake the first thing her mind went to was coffee. The second thing that was on her mind was Mr. Bank's offer.
Leona sat up on the bed, swung her feet around to the left side of it, and put her feet on the floor. She then stood up and faced her room door. She was pretty sure that she had quite a bit of paperwork to take care of, so she would need to handle that... after a few cups of coffee, of course. Leona decided to switch back to her green, white, and gold outfit top before heading to the guild cafe, so she walked over to the wardrobe and opened it, then retrieved the garment in question and started to put it on.
-The Guild Mistress' Office, thirty-three minutes later-
Once Leona had put her green, white, and gold outfit top on and looked lke a Guild Mistress she paid a visit to the guild cafe and consumed two cups of coffee there before heading to the office. After getting seated at her desk she stared at a medium-sized stack of papers that she estimated would take at least an hour to do, if not slightly longer. As the old saying went, there was no time like the present, so Leona started going over the papers slowly and carefully so that she did not make any mistakes. The last thing she wanted to do was make a mistake and have to start the stack of papers all over again.
-The Guild Mistress' Office, five hours later-
What had started as one medium-sized stack of papers had somehow multiplied into four medium-sized stacks that Leona somehow handled in one sitting. After taking care of the fifth and final stack of papers Leona quickly pushed her chair up to the desk and walked briskly towards the door before a sixth stack could appear. She opened the door and swiftly closed it, heading towards her room without anyone the wiser. If any more paperwork needed to be done she would take care of it later today... right now she needed to give Mr. Bank's offer some more thought and she could not do that if she was busy with administrative tasks.
-Leona's room, three minutes later-
Now that Leona was safely inside of her room without having been spotted by any guild staff members carrying armloads of papers, she took a quiet breath. She had a bit of time to herself before she would go back to the office and take care of any further paperwork that had been deposited on her desk. She walked over to her personal desk, pulled out the chair, and sat down in it before starting to stare at the wall in front of her and trying to think of an answer to the offer Mr. Bank had made yesterday.
She was likely going to be sitting here awhile.
