Nôl folded her legs under herself, making the dark, polished, and antique wood of the chair creak alarmingly. It just always had to speak up about the job she was doing didn't it? She wasn't the first Community Section typist there had been and didn't it just love to remind her of that? Lot of history in that chair, and probably more tears of frustration than blood and sweat honestly...

"Nôl Nôl Nôl baby...where's the passion?!"

How was she suppose to 'spice up' the biweekly 'Mrs. King's dog is missing again, please report any missing limbs via her mailbox and don't stare if you see it headed home' ad?


"How about, hmm, doodles? You've got that sketch pad!"

"Last time that started a scavenger hunt and half her dog was reassembled by the girl scouts as a party game." The limbs changed after all, no one knew what to expect...except when some did.

"Right, right and then they wanted prizes, scratch that idea. Hmmmm. How about you add a bit? Someone has to have sent a few more announcements!"

"Gilly will kill me." For stealing the lead 'reporters' thunder with the dramatic announcement she'd slid into the woman's to do box

"Oh? Then you should absolutely write it! Gilly has the flu!"

"If she does kill me please turn in my assignments I can't afford to fail since you don't pay death benefits to work study," she chuckled.

"Damn right, and make it interesting! Engaging!"

"Sure." Yup.

Ahem.

'The Local honeybee Foundation will be accepting donations during tomorrow's fair. Please attend.

Donate.

We realize the Girl Scouts have been out in force recently and cookie reserves are claiming funds but the honeybees are perilously close to disappearing this year after the cold snap.

We all would miss them.

All blood drive, toy drive, and game booths will be diverted to honeybee wellness benefits. Please attend all events. Win honeybee prizes and crystal tickets for your efforts.

We are not accepting home bottled blood donations this year due to lack of canning quality control and pectin content(we all know whose fault that is).

Guest appearance by the Drones, everyone's favorite twenty part harmony band! Children's tickets are fourteen crystal tickets, adults, twenty.

Dream Honey and Mead available in the beer garden, ticket prices vary.

Remember the honorable service honeybees provide our community!

And what happens when the honey stops flowing.
'

"See, now that will get them buzzing!"

Nôl groaned, obligingly, and carefully took her name off the column, yes, back page community news or no, best not to risk that particular threat to life and limb hmmm? "See you at the fair?"

"Count me out," Teitur leaned back and stretched slightly from his desk. "But if you are going, I wouldn't say no to some Mead. My medicine cabinet is getting low." He gestured slightly and one of his service cats hopped down from her perch on his shoulders to grab the marker that had fallen from the desk.

"I mailed in my donation this morning." Specifically so he could beg off. His crutches did terribly at the fairgrounds and he wasn't about to attempt to get a wheelchair through there. Not after last year. The cat dropped the pen on his lap.

"I can set her up with one of those earworms. It'll be like an episode of Unchecked Gun-Toting Thugs of a Tyrannical Government." He grinned at Nol. "And I get to be Stacy. She's the coolest in that show."

"You knew that sensory organs are under lease to us while you're here almost-intern," he grinned, making a few notes to his own story on the recent renovations to the library. Honestly, he was not pleased with the removal of the bear spray dispensers, and he made sure everyone knew it. Though, to be fair, the new expansion of the unknowable sections had been badly needed...

"Hate will help you win those fair games too."

The secretary didn't glance up from her crystal spire. "After the election debacle, accounting recommends guinea pigs."

Teitur glanced back at her. "Got a date in mind?"

The secretary speaks up again. "Accounting says that if you bring them three-quarters of a dozen tobacco cookies and 8 pints of the house blend, they can work out a better deal on companion tickets."

"There you go then!" Teitur pointed a finger at her. "You get a discount for your date and the coffee shop gets a rousing endorsement from Accounting. Win-Win for everyone."

Teitur held up a few bills. "I'll take a 16 ounce catmint coffee." The secretary tapped the side of the spire. "Paprika muffin please."

He blew her a sarcastic kiss before going back to his own work. Sometimes the work study interns just had no sense of fun.

Ryley looked up at her as she came in and grinned. "Nope! We've still got pretty much everything in stock. Did you get stuck on coffee duty again?"

"You're going to the fair?" He picked up the list and looked it over, going through the motions to put together the order.

"I didn't think you were into that kind of thing?"

"You always tell me these horror stories about him, but he can't be that terrible," he offered, tucking the cookies into a corner of the purple baked-goods box. "And maybe he knows a lot about those games so you can win something!" Always looking on the bright side.

"I think I'll just have to do my mandated donation though the usual method," he said thoughtfully. "I always get annoyed

"Oh! If you need someone, I can go with you. I mostly just get annoyed because I can't ever really participate. Having someone there that people can look at when they can't look at me would help."

He placed the drinks into one of those carriers and tilted his head slightly.

"Or, you could ask Surya. They can't do the rides," what with being between 9 and 15 feet tall depending on the day, "but I know they like that kind of thing?"
