"Oh, this is just brilliant." Robert set down his suitcase, and rubbed the back of his head. It was fair to say that this wasn't what he was expecting. Sure, he knew that the farm was in a bad way, but he didn't think it would look as if sneezing too hard could cause it all to blow away. However, he was not one to be deterred from his work, merely by the prospect of tough challenges. He was an alchemist - his work was built on working to solve problems. And if he needed to roll his sleeves up and get dirty to do this, he would. The only problem was his farmer partner. Or, rather, his lack of one. He didn't wait around for her, though. He had things to work on - soil samples to collect, weeds to examine, things like that. He needed to examine just how the place worked, and he didn't intend to waste time just standing around. Various sample-gathering tools were take out of his suitcase, and he knelt on the ground, to take what he needed. He seemed engrossed in his work - to the point where one would need a sledgehammer to get him to notice them.
