Paperwork. Decidedly Karon's least favorite part of his job, but one he had to do every time he returned from the mortal worlds. He was required to log every ghost he slayed: the details of their identity, their location, the events of their slaying, and any mortal interference in his operation. That last part was one he usually left out of his reports. More often than not, the mortals were helping him, not interfering. Most people didn't want ghosts hanging around, after all. So he wrote them out of his reports when he could manage it, to spare him the extra paperwork of logging the mortals down, and to save the mortals the trouble of being interviewed by another ogre from Otherworld. That second part didn't usually happen, only in special cases, but it was a big headache when it did, so Karon tried to avoid it.All in all, it was soul-sucking work (pun somewhat intended.) The ogre was hunched over his desk in his cramped office, for hours, filing away logs from a month afield. He needed a break, badly. Stretching, he went over to the single window and swung it open. He was still on the clock, but he didn't expect anyone to come looking for him today. He could get away with playing a little hooky. With one swift movement, he leapt out the window and onto the grass below. His office was only on the second floor, and he landed easily with a roll, and was right back up on his feet and walking without losing momentum.Maybe he could find something more interesting out in the fields of the Upper Worlds than in his stuffy office.
