The guard stationed at the door was indifferent to Seid's approach, merely looking up and grunting to acknowledge that Seid was there. He recognized the boy well enough.
Nariko was in the middle of a large amount of paperwork, and heard a knock at the door. Standing up, she formed the seals for a Shadow Clone, which sat down and continued to work on the stack of papers while she answered the door herself. She had on her usual Jounin outfit, and she pushed past Seid, motioning for him to follow her. "We're going for a walk, I'm getting a little stir crazy." her quick comment came to explain.
As they walked back down the hallway, she looked back at him briefly. "I wasn't expecting you back so quickly. Something the matter, or did you complete your mission so fast that you've already returned?" Of course, she remembered her earlier conversation with him, as she remembered most of her interactions with people. That was another part of her job, having to remember what she said to one person or another, which would usually be fine, but she commanded hundreds and thousands of troops and civilians as well, in addition to having tons of paperwork.
