Konoe didn't expect any; Tsuzuki only listened to the briefing with polite disinterest.
"He won't be coming with you."
"Ah... okay" Tsuzuki's frown was instant, then gone. "It's an easy one, anyway. Tell him I'll see him next time--"
"He won't be joining you the next time, or the one after that--"
"I see. I'm okay--" Tsuzuki stood before Konoe could explain further. "I'm used to it."
After Tsuzuki left, Konoe started looking at applications. Tatsumi had been a good worker; it was a pity the only transfer Konoe could offer was reincarnation.
