I Know It's Late

Work Text:

“I know it’s late, but better late than never, right?” Ellana attempted with a shrug as she slid a stack of documents across Josie’s desk. Some letters she’d needed to pen, and many treaties she needed to review and sign.

It therefore took thrice as long to decipher the words on the pages. Who had the time?

Josie couldn’t help but sigh. “Not necessarily, Your Worship.”
