As Padparadscha stepped down the hall, her strides became longer, her heels hit the floor with increased vigor, and the shadows of her expression lengthened. Even as she fled the scene that had opened a scarred pride, she knew there was only more to come; she fidgeted with the communication's line clasped in her hands. Pink Pearl hurried after the sapphire, until they arrived in the judicial court corridor where Padparadscha's office was. The pearl scrambled to open the door, so that the aristocratic investigator wouldn't break stride as she swept into the room, and went to her desk.
Shortly after Pink Pearl entered the room behind her, Padparadscha activated the communicator, and allowed it to ascend gracefully into the air. The yellow-hued light clashed against the all-pink decor and walls of her office, and soon with a ping, the line was received, and a yellow pearl stood to receive it,"Ah, Madam 8QE, I shall alert my mistress. We have anticipated your report for quite some time," The pearl moved off of the scene, the communicator's view turned through a bright yellow room held up by ornate pillars that branched into the ceiling. It was essentially barren, but for two conspicuous pieces of furniture.
There was a desk, and lounge chair that sat empty, until a short gem shuffled into view. Her gemstone was set where her eye would be, complexion of sparkling yellow and gold. A huge stack of ornately fashioned hair sat precariously atop her head, sharp shoulder-pads jutted up from her tight corset, and her billowing dress was so inflated it seemed to restrict her movement as she languished across the lounge chair. The yellow sapphire tapped her gemstone and brought forth a feathery fan as the communication window narrowed in on her. While she languidly fanned herself, the corners of her lips curled up, coerced into a smile. She spoke in a rich, low tone that echoed off of the walls and pillars,"Ah, my dear, it is so good to speak with you. I've been restless about our precious undertaking, have you called to update me on the Lotus?"
Of course, the yellow sapphire was already lying, but Padparadscha pretended to not notice,"Greetings, 9AT. I wish to be updated on the status of my sisterhood before I speak on that matter," Padparadscha stated in a businesslike tone, clasping her hands over the desk as her intense glare struck into the gem on the other side.
Yellow Sapphire's head canted forward, and she pulled up the fan to cover her mouth and nose; only her vivid yellow gemstone glared over the pale feathers as she spoke on,"Oh," she gave a disappointed sigh,"Your sisters are doing fine, as always. Speak up already, I must know everything,"
