The day stretched ahead of him in the form of a long list of things he needed to do and tasks he needed to complete. It was a list that was too long to even take in at once, so he'd chosen a job off of it at random, hoping it was easy.
He needed to go to speak to Obliviator named Lyre - a man he'd seen in passing a few times, recognizable by a shock of red hair upon his head. That shouldn't be too hard. Apparently he had some sort of documentation from a previous incident that Ani needed a copy of. This seemed oddly like busy work....
With a shrug, Anakin made his way down to the somewhat dim, and always slightly creepy, department. He wandered around a bit before finding the appropriate desk, having to ask a couple of people along the way. Finally, he arrived at his destination.
However, when he rounded the corner, he was not faced by the red-headed man, but, instead, by a red-haired woman, not much younger than he. Immediately, he became a little confused. "I'm looking for...Lyre? I thought this was his desk?" He asked, gesturing towards the desk the girl was sitting so casually on. He couldn't have possibly screwed up such an easy task.

If his head wasn’t attached, Haddie was pretty sure her great grandpa would leave it behind. He had forgotten his wallet on the table again, and as she was pretty sure that was kind of important she showed up at the ministry to give it to him. Only, he wasn’t at his desk at the moment which meant she was going to have to wait there until he got back so that she could tell him she was bringing his wallet to him. As much as she trusted wizard cops to not steal from one another, she wanted to make sure he saw it so she wasn’t going to just leave it on his desk and skip back off. Thus, she plopped herself on his desk and decided to wait. She hadn’t been there for too terribly long when a boy around her age showed up looking for him and seemed very perplexed by her presence on her grandpa’s desk. He also seemed to think that he might have the wrong desk all together because of that.
“Oh, no, this is his desk. He forgot his wallet at home again so I’m bringing it to him, but I don’t want to just leave it on his desk in case he doesn’t notice it,” she said with a shrug. “I’m Haddie Ponce, we’re related,” she said with a smile. Which certainly would explain her red hair, and probably as to why she had his wallet and was sitting on his desk waiting for him. At least she didn’t have work today, as otherwise she might be late if she had to wait for grandpa to come back. Perhaps she should have asked someone whether he was simply away running errands or if he actually had to go out on a mission. Would they know? She was pretty sure half his coworkers paid him no mind because they thought he was a smidge on the odd side. “Did you need him for something?” she asked curiously.
Ani was a bit distracted that the person in front of him was a girl, let alone such a pretty girl. He found the red hair on top of her hair very interesting, he'd always kind of been drawn to the color. He realized he was staring at her and quickly diverted his eyes. He didn't want to be rude. He scratched the back of his head nervously, his eyes darting around the area surrounding them, trying desperately not to appear as awkward as he felt.
He shrugged a little when the girl asked if he needed something, as didn't think it was all that pressing, just busy work. Still, it needed to get done. "I'm um, Anakin Harlow. I'm supposed to be picking up some papers from him. But, er, if he's not h-here I guess I can come back later." He shrugged again, nervously stuttering through the sentence. If the girl knew Lyre's filing system, she may actually be able to help him find the paper.

He was staring at her, and the way he was staring made her wonder if he was really just perplexed as to why she was on Lyre’s desk or something else. She wasn’t the best at picking up on things like that, so she just blinked at him until he ended up looking away and scratching the back of his neck. Oh, had she made it awkward or something? Oops, she didn’t mean to. Oh well, there was no fixing it now so she just introduced herself and asked what he needed her great grandpa for. Though, she didn’t outright call him that, as this boy would actually run into Lyre and then be real suspicious as to how he was her great grandpa. He said his name and she tilted her head. “Harlow? Are you related to Avery?” she asked curiously.
“Well, if you tell me what you’re looking for I can probably find it. His work is about the only thing about him that is organized,” she said with a slight smile. Maybe that was a tad harsh, but it wasn’t wrong. Her grandpa really was a disaster sometimes with how forgetful he was with all of his objects. Yet his work was always perfect as far as she knew, and his desk was completely organized as if it wasn’t then she wouldn’t really have been able to be sitting on it in the first place.
His train of thought was interrupted by the pretty red-head asking him a question. For this, he was grateful, because it brought him back to this current moment in time and sort of shook some of his awkwardness. "Oh, yeah, I know Avery. She's my twin sister, actually. Why? Do you know her?" Avery was the sort of person who seemed to make friends so easily, he wouldn't be surprised if this was one of them.
The blonde looked around, then back down at the slip he had been given. He wasn't sure if this girl was even a Minsitry employee and was technically allowed to handle the report in question. Even still, he needed to get it. "Ummm I'm looking for a report from June 3rd, 2012. Do you think you could find that? If you could, that'd be really helpful." Considering this was his only task so far and he was already failing it it. But, hey, it wasn't technically his fault.

His last name was familiar, so she was going to go ahead and ask if he knew her coworker. Oh, when he explained she smiled a bit. “Your twin? That’s neat, I work with her. Well, okay, we’re in different departments, but I see her in the break room sometimes,” she said with a smile. So yes, she did know Avery and they saw one another at work regularly, but they didn’t technically work together as they were in different departments. It was close enough though that she probably didn’t have to really explain. So her twin brother worked in the Ministry? Didn’t her cousin also work here? Maybe she was the odd one out with working at a hospital instead of the Ministry? Or maybe it was just three of them or something?
Anyway, he asked for a report from a date and she hopped off Lyre’s desk and skipped over to his filing cabinet. “Well, these are all organized by year, soooo this one should be twenty twelve, anddddd here is June third,” she said with a smile before pulling the file out and handing it over. “Here you are sir,” she said with a smile at the boy. Like she had said, Lyre’s work was about the only thing about him that was really all that organized. Thus, it was easy to find reports because they were always in date order. Though, that was more because he’d been working at the ministry for close to seventy years and if he didn’t order them by date then he’d never be able to find anything ever if she thought about it.
