“Okay, uh. Little girl, the top class Hunter Marks are reserved for only the highest rank members. I can’t even show Further here any of them since she just started.

He is met with a giggle, “Oh! Well I shouldn’t need to register to be a Hunter.”
“Wh-WHAT? This is the Hunters’ main office. Our jobs are just for Hunters. This isn’t a game, okay. Please I am trying to work here,” Maluo seems to be getting more frustrated as time goes on. He isn’t quite prepared to deal with children, they don’t really come into the building.
