good intentions paved with gold
The driver pulled the hover-limousine in front of the gaming company building, then he jogged to open the door for his client.
"Thank you so much!" she smiled like it was the first time he did such thing and like it was out of the kindness of his heart. "You can take a break. You too, Raas, you can stay behind" The last part was addressed to her Grey guardian, which was still in the car. The young woman then stepped towards the building, ignoring the Grey’s protests and effectively ending any possible conversation.
The automatic doors opened and she stepped inside and looked around. The sunglasses she was wearing turned from dark tinted to clear at the change of light and now looked like regular glasses to correct eyesight.
30 minutes later it turned out that she didn’t figure anything out, but she did find a cool vending machine that asked for coins. Coins! She had to ask for a passer-by to change her a bill and then picked some fish-shaped jelly. The guy didn’t say anything, maybe he thought she was working there? Looking in retrospective, she could’ve asked him for directions too, but an open door got her attention and she followed her instinct. She winded up in a room with a group of people that were currently watching some videos or something, so she stuck around, silently munching in the background.

"Uh, excuse me?"
A voice, not soft (though it was admittedly quieter than both the video audio and the hmms and hahs of the people viewing them) but definitely unassuming, issued from somewhere behind Lorelei. Had the Gold turned around at that moment, they would have seen a person, an inch or two shorter than them, of indeterminate sex but for their (his?) too-flat chest. From his decently made but somewhat well-worn flannel shirt and vest--a loose thread here, a faded patch there--the slightly bulkier datapad secured on his wrist, and the fact that he was here in this room without a tray of refreshments in hand, it was obvious that he was middle-caste; from his youth, perhaps he was one of the children of the suited older folks currently engrossed.
"Are you..." he continued, trailing off for a moment. "...well, are you here to watch as well, miss?"
(And so it begins... :3)

Though she got engrossed by the animation playing on the screen, she was still aware of her surroundings. In fact, while watching silently, sometimes her attention diverged towards the people and a thought occured to her, that when the video will end, they’ll probably notice her.
Right then a voice from behind caught her attention and she turned around with a little jump. ”I...” she stopped to look back at the people in the room to see if they noticed yet. Then she turned back to the young person and stepped outside the room, close to the doorway but just aside enough to not disturb them if she kept a low voice.
”To be honest, not really, no, but please, don’t let me interrupt” she continued, all signs of her earlier awkwardness gone now, a bright smile on her face. She took another step aside to let them pass through the door if they wanted to. As if she meant to stay and continue to watch.
She blinked a few times, realizing that this was such a basic Gold move. Their default settings were to feel like they belonged everywhere, like they owned everything. And she DID drop there unannounced at the company. With a sigh, she reconsidered.
”Wait, actually” she stopped them once again and gathered her words. ”Could I take a minute of your time? I was on my way to the animators’ department. Do you know which way it is? I’m looking for a Mr. Park”
