Those days, it wasn't commonplace for someone to request Diana's attention much at all. Outside of Olivia's antics with May (and what a mess that turned out to be, truly), Diana had pulled away from most people, mostly Kyle and Amalea; it allowed her to greatly focus on work, and it was because of it that she managed to finally get out of that dead end position in the newspaper. Of course, that meant more hours, more erratic schedules, more exhaustion. Good thing she loved what she did.

That was one of her odd days off, however (on a Thursday!) and knew a long time friend of hers, Yunseo, was looking for some advice. She had hear through the grapevine - Olivia and Gideon, of course, were her actual sources - that little Jinwon had gotten into some trouble at school, but she didn't recall the specifics. Instead, she did the next best thing - she called up the oldest of the Park brothers for a light post-school snack in her company, as well as Brownie's. The half-Kneazle occupied the chair she wanted to sit on as she carefully served some tea for the two, as well as some biscuits.

"How have you been?" She spoke with a smile, having not seen the man in a while. That was mostly her fault - for all the visits she paid to the school, she surely could afford to swing by his classroom! It was something she noted at the back of her mind before proceeding. "Outside the obvious, of course. Unless you'd rather tackle that straight away?"

Yunseo was almost at his wits' end for many reasons, not just including work stuff, the pressures from his overly strict grandparents, and all the shit that Jiwon was putting him through. All in all, it had him a little worn out and his life felt like it was heading for disaster. Yun was almost ready for some sort of breakdown, though he really wished that his personality and upbringing didn't lead to this sort of goddamned thing. For this very reason he often found it impossible to go and talk things out with a friend or family member, he usually preferred talking stuff out with an unbiased professional. Though the fight that Jiwon had gotten himself into seemed like it needed a bit more advice from someone more familiar. Yun didn't think that he'd been as off the rails as his younger brother was now. 

Since it was a Thursday Yunseo had had to pretend that he had some work business to take care of so that he could get out of the usual family dinner. If he had told the truth about it, then he would have faced a lot of questions and he didn't fancy that. The twenty-four year old took a deep breath as he raised a shaking hand to Diana's door and knocked lightly. He waited there until he was invited in. Yunseo returned his friend's smile, but held himself kind of awkwardly, especially since he hadn't seen Diana in a good while. 

"Good for the most part, but I probably could be better." Yun guessed that things would likely become more open and his explanation would make a small bit more sense. "It's been pretty good, just the normal stressing grandparents as usual and having no idea what's happening, but it seems like that stuff will probably settle down soon enough." In all fairness, it was true. Yunseo hadn't been teaching all that long, so it was going to take him a bit of time to get used to everything that went into it. As for his grandparents, well they'd probably always be the same. These weren't the concerning parts of his life right now.

It seemed that Yunseo had opted to beat around the bush for a while and catch up instead of tackling whatever matter that was ailing him right off the bat. Diana certainly didn't mind that choice as she very much enjoyed spending time with her friend and would tackle on any little excuse she possibly could to do so - within reason, of course. At least she had the afternoon to spare for that little detour.

She set the tea pot down and slipped Yunseo's preferred amount of sugar into the beverage, stirring it before doing the same with her own. Brownie was showing some resistance to leaving the chair, finding it all too comfortable, something Diana couldn't help smiling a bit at. "I suppose it could be worse." She idly commented as she picked up the half-Kneazle with both arms. Despite Brownie's initial protests, it soon settled down once Diana sat on that same chair and let it rest upon her lap.

"How's Tallygarunga treating you?" It was unfortunate that she couldn't ask Yunseo about how Gideon was doing, as her little brother wasn't in his class from what she could remember. Perhaps she should ask Olivia to keep an eye on both Yunseo and Gideon - she was a good source, at least, and the nurses always heard of everything that was going on at the school, if only because they always had to deal with the aftermath of any issue that could arise. "I hear things have been getting... Lively, in a way, at least in Narragyambie."

As a journalist, she'd heard all about the gruesome murder in the area, as well as the fact the victim's child was a Tallygarunga student. She could only hope this kid was hanging in there.
