Mai walked down the Coral dorm hallways and breathed in a deep sigh, "What am I going to do..." she spoke to herself. Very recently, a message from Zipang came for her about her brother and their dire need of a meister. "It's not like I can speed up the process of me becoming a great otome... These things take time." Needless to say, she was very stressed and worried sick about her brother and her region's situations. Echoes in the hallway which sounded like nervous laughter broke her concentration. She raised her eyes to a pair of girls that were entering a dorm room across from her own.
"Honestly, Carla-chan, we don't need to do this! I'm over Na-", the pink haired girl caught sight of Mai and seemed to become stiff. The shorter girl, assumed to be Carla, turned in the direction of her as well, "Oh! Hello, Tokiha-oneesama. Beautiful day today, isn't it?", she smiled very politely and bowed towards Mai, then quickly turned and pushed her friend into the dorm room. "Please, excuse us!"
