Magenta drags her feet into the office as her body wears the usual Monday morning tiredness from the weekend. She's usually on time but today she's running a little late. That's apparent by the fact Colby beat her and is already sitting at his desk.

"Someone needs a tardy slip," Jux teases taking a sip from his coffee mug.

"Good morning to you too," she grumbles.

"I would ask if it was a long weekend, but I know it was. I'm still recovering from your brother's wedding. Between the alcohol, edibles, blunts..."

"And Pandora?" she pokes fun grabbing a portfolio from him.

Jux laughs under his breath and shakes his head. "I could ask the same about Gee," he shoots back knowing he's got her with that one.

"To my desk I go," Gen whisks away before he can ask any questions or make any jokes. She goes into her office closing her door behind her. Removing her jacket she throws it and her purse on armchair in the corner.

Before Magenta's mind could drift to the conversation or the kiss she shared with Gee at her brother's wedding, she notices something on her desk. Seeing a bouquet of roses Gen sits on the edge of her desk. Before even reading the card she knows exactly who they're from.

"All these years and he's still trying to make roses my favorite flower even though I told him a million times they're sunflowers." She looks at the card indicating they're from Noah. Rolling her eyes to herself she flicks the card across the room watching it fall to the floor.

Before she can take her place at her desk there's a knock at the door. At her behest the door is opened by the intern who greets her with a smile. "You're here, finally. Your sister would like to speak with you in her office."

"Can it wait? I would like to login and check some things first?" she asks sitting down. She'd rather not speak to or see her sister unless there's an apology. It's hard to avoid Felicity when they work together.

"She said it's important."

Gen sighs. "I'll be there." She shoots a short smile to the intern as she closes the door behind her. Gen takes that moment to prepare herself with deep breaths before making her way to Felicity's office. Walking in she looks at her sister who's on a phone call. Felicity holds up her finger and Magenta rolls her eyes closing the door behind herself.
