Breakfast and a meeting

Tomoki ate breakfast in front of the computer. She reviewed the surveys that had been taken of the planet. She made several notes and then had the computer play some music while she finished her breakfast.

After she finished, she gathered up her notes. She shut down the computer and withdrew her disk. She put the disk back in her suitcase and then locked the suitcase. She left the suite and locked the door behind her. She retraced her steps from yesterday evening until she stood before the doors to the Governor's office.

She was just about to know on the door when it opened in front of her. The Governor stood in the doorway looking a bit surprised.

"I did not expect you to be so prompt for this meeting," he uttered in shock.

"I said I would be here at this time and I am here at this time. Is that a rarity on New Shiran?" Tomoki replied coolly. "I trust you are ready," she continued.

"Of course, go right in. I'll be back in a moment," the Governor said, before darting down the corridor.

Tomoki entered the office and sat down on one of the couches off to the side of the office. She withdrew a dark metallic triangular device from a pocket inside her coat and placed it on the table. She then leant back and relaxed while she waited for the Governor to return.

A few minutes later the Governor returned and sat down across from Tomoki.
