Mei went so red at that implication that she promptly put tomatoes to shame. M...M...Married? To the dumbass...? She clutched her ears and bent over nearly double in the chair, whimpering and wishing she were dead. Horrific! Utterly, totally, incomprehensibly horrific! And yet, a guilty corner of her mind relished the fantasy of being Mrs Shirogane Ren, waiting for him to come home from work in a house with a white picket fence and a dog named-

"No! No, no, no, no!"

It took Mei a little while to realise that she had, in fact, said this out loud, and the sheer embarrassment of it all brought tears to her eyes. While Mei was not a shy girl, everyone's attention being centered on her in conjunction with her successions of little slip-ups caused her to have a panic attack, prompting her to flee the room in terror, crying tears of shame the entire way.

She ran from the building, not knowing where she was going and only stopping once she ran out of breath.
