#Location: Mayor's Office

Yesterday we announced a combined $200,000 donation to strengthen behavioral health services in Puerto Rico thanks to the Mayor’s Fund to Advance New York City and our partner, the Hispanic Federation. When people walk into a health center, we want them to get ALL the care for mind and body that they need.

Meetings with the Mayor were one of the few things Mallory didn’t mind taking a break in her work for. The woman actually seemed to possess a brain and had used it to make a success of herself, something she could approve of, even respect. On top of that she didn’t start to shake with nerves the moment Mallory entered the room, again something she encountered all to often.

So she made her way to the Mayor’s office right on time, cradling a bottle of wine in her hand, after all she wasn’t about to come empty handed, and knocked on the door. After a moment she was called to enter and walked inside, smiling at the woman. 

“Madame Mayor, a pleasure as always. I’m here as requested but before we settle down to business, a gift.” she put the bottle on the desk, “Argentinian Malbec, some of the finest produced.”

News clip on Aore Nagaoka, my translation of Yuzu-parts:

Yuzu: “The audience is very near and we can feel ‘at home’.  I am really looking forward to it.  I want to express fully my emotions and I am not just focused on jumps, spins, steps, but on the performance as a whole and I can enjoy skating it.”

At the mayor’s office, when he sat on the chair, Oda teased him by calling him “Mayor Hanyu”.  Then Miki said, “Be serious, Mayor!  Have a serious face.”  And Yuzu covered his face. ^^ 

(At the rink) Yuzu: “I think I will be able to see each person’s face.  So I want to enjoy it.”
