Signy’s eyes bored into Suiyo as he made his way out of the bar due to all the sudden activity. An uneasy tightness blossomed in her chest. Though the feeling didn’t last long as Zhou responded to her.
“I will deliver these to him.”
She smiled as Zhou took the candy for Asahi. She’d always intended to extend and invitation to the candy making member of 3rd division for them to meet and discuss their shared passion. Now was her chance to get to know them and maybe add another confidante to her already small list of those she trusts. She could feel her husband’s eyes on her even if it'd been for but a moment, questioning how she was aware that he was a member of 3rd. The fact of the matter had been that she hadn’t been, at least she wasn’t certain when she asked. She’d heard whispers of a former member of 2nd transferring to the academy, and if he’d looked at her like she was crazy when she’d asked, she could have just brushed it off as being mistaken identity.
Her eyes flicked over to Honoka. She wanted to say something, offer her condolences for the fate of her clan, but she didn’t. Now was not the time for that, Signy could tell she was in a foul mood. However, as she rose to leave, Signy bowed her head. Though Honoka was now disgraced and even a criminal, she had still been the head lieutenant and it only felt right to show her the respect she’d earned.
Once alone with her husband, she merely stared down into the cup of sake before her. He’d been so sure that things went better than expected, but for her it only seemed worse. She would rather get this mysterious favor out of the way sooner than later. Her fingers gingerly cupped the small glass of alcohol for a moment.
”You should have known. Once a criminal, always a criminal. He’ll be the ruin of this family.”
Signy’s fingers clench, shattering the glass in an instance, sake soaking into the small cuts that now covered her fingers and palm. She hadn’t paid any mind to what elk had said to her. Instead, she rose from her chair and glanced down at him.
”Let’s just go. There’s no point in sticking around in here.”
As she made her way to the door, she picked the small shards of ceramics out of the cuts. Though she wanted to stay mad at her husband, she couldn’t bring herself to remain angry.
