Osmond's second day off wasn't as chipper as his first. The mentioning of Mei-Ling from Ellie had uprooted some gloom and doom he had mentally repressed for some time due to his thoughts constantly on work. Now that he had a chance to think about her, though, it only churned a big, hazy raincloud over his head that seemed to only come about when he was alone. Since sleep and its wonderful effects were far passed him now, the dark-skinned male sat up in bed and stuffed the remnants of a sorrowful face in the crevasses of his hands. He hadn't sobbed, but thoughts of his marriage and eventual divorce did cause his eyes to tear up.

Osmond snorted awake at the sound of a high-pitched melody that echoed from the mobile on his bedside table. An arm shot out from the many layers of blankets and sheets, slapping around for the annoying device before it was caught within grip. Tugging it back down into the depths, he pressed it to his ear after jabbing the answer button.

There was a slight grumble as she replied, "Did you just wake up or something? Remember we agreed to have lunch today?"
Shit! "Aw, no, I didn't forget, Ellie... I... I was in the middle of getting dressed when you called," he replied.
"I don't believe you, dad," she said flatly.

The clicks and clacks of a keyboard ended when Osmond leaned back in his chair with a creak. He thumbed his temple and sighed miserably, flicking his eyes open as he placed a hand atop the mouse and clicked the word "save" on the document. "Done," he muttered to himself. "Took me long enough."
Suddenly, the weight on the back of his chair increased as a pair of arms propping up a chin looked down at the dark-skinned male. "Took you long enough," the man repeated airily. "Want me to take a look at it?"
Osmond shrugged a shoulder, glancing his grey eyes up to him. "It wouldn't really matter, John," he said. "Higher-ups are gonna bitch about it anyway."
John stepped back from the chair. "Touché," he replied with a snap of his fingers. "But at least we don't have to deal with that asshole Conne
