    It was lunch time for many students, and the cafeteria was packed. Minikuiko found herself overwhelmed by the crowd and curled up at one of the small corner tables in the dining area. She was by herself and struggling to come to terms with her deformity. Afraid of letting people see what her face looked like underneath, she found herself unable to eat any food. Staring longingly at the lunch before her. Was there anywhere she could hide? Maybe she should eat outside. Maybe she could take this to her dorm room?

    Her mind recalled the few friends she made by hanging out in the M3C. Mini found herself missing them, especially Riley. He was probably too busy for her though....she sighed gently. Would he even accept her if he saw what was underneath the bandages? Her gut said yes, but her mind told her no. Her mother's cruel remarks rang in her head. Leading her to a path further plagued by anxiety.

    Mini sat alone during her silent panic attack, secretly begging for escape.

    The amount of time Aren had spent trying to delve into the secrets that the hard drive around his neck had made it quite hard to find time to actually make many friends. Of course this wasn’t helped by the fact that he was already an extremely submissive person so he wasn’t the type often approach anyone at all. There were always those very rare exceptions however.

    As Aren got his food in the crowded lunch line, he looked for an empty table he could just plop down and eat quietly to himself. As he was looking around he saw a lonely girl sitting all by herself at one of the corner tables. Normally Aren would have just paid no attention and continued where he normally sat but something about this girl called to him. He thought it was like she was dealing with things rather similar to his own issues.

    Aren carefully walked over to the table as best he could and tried to muster up a good smile. “I-U-Um excuse me...would you...mind if I sat here with you?”

    With that, a guy appearing to be around Mini's age approached. She looked up at him and shook her head. "You may sit here...." She wasn't sure why someone would want to sit with her, but she accepted it.

    The girl picked at her food. Now really afraid of showing her scarred face, she concluded it was best she ate later. Her mind thought of ways to preserve the meal. The rokurokubi's singular eye wandered back onto Aren. "Um...what's your name....?"

    Aren was filled with more joy than he probably should had gotten from the girl saying that he could sit down with her. Aren took a seat, close to the girl but not close enough for it to be awkward. Aren watched a little as the girl picked at her food, not knowing if it would be rude to eat if she was not eating. When she asked who she was he suddenly got his smile again to try and be friendly. “O-Oh! My name is Aren Mulivic, it’s a pleasure to meet you~”

    "I'm...Mini...nice to meet you." The girl bowed her head politely. She noticed that he was not touching his food. Her head tilted in confusion at the sight. "Are you...not hungry...?" It didn't occur to her that he was trying not to be rude. She was not used to such attentiveness over her actions and well-being.

    Aren smiled softly towards the girl Mini. While he noticed her bandages he didn’t seem bothered at all by them. “M-Mini huh? That’s a..very nice name.” Aren said, trying to be polite as well to the girl. When she pointed out he was not eating his food he jumped a little in his seat, attempting to find the words to explain his train of thought. “O-Oh! I u-um...I-I thought that if you weren’t eating that...it would be p-polite for me to eat infront of you....”

    It was then she realized why he wasn't eating. He was trying to respect her? How odd. The girl shook her head. "No, go on. I'm just...a-a little shy about showing my face..." She had to outright admit it. She didn't want to make anyone lose their appetite looking at her. Sure this would seem odd to most, but she was convinced of her hideousness thanks to her mother. Her awful adoptive mother.

    Her hand rubbed against the bandaged side of her face. She could feel her stomach grumble.. It felt a bit painful, but nothing she couldn't handle. "If you knew my full name and what it meant, you...probably wouldn't..." The girl cut off and frowned; she was unsure if she should explain that after having been vehemently told not to say her name. It was odd having someone else reject her mean-spirited name when she had long grown used to it. Perhaps that was a bad thing.

    Aren froze for a moment not sure what to do with his food. Mini had said it was alright but Aren still didn’t know if he should eat in front of her. In the end Aren’s hunger had gotten the best of him and he took a bite out of his meal. “Why are you shy of showing your face?” Aren asked, genuinely curious. Now he knew why Mini had bandages wrapped around her face but he still didn’t know what was so bad under them. Aren frowned more when Mini started to talk bad about her name. He didn’t know how to make her feel better, so he took a deep breath and let his words come out before he could think. “N-Names are only important to those that give power to them. I have another name..one that is a symbol of bad things but it doesn’t matter. A name shouldn’t be something you loathe, a name by itself means nothing.”

    Mini lowered her head. "I'm ugly, just like my name..." Her hand reached up to touch her bandages. "Mother burned my face. I wouldn't want to make you lose your appetite..." The girl was convinced of her hideousness. He wouldn't be interested in seeing her. He probably wouldn't want to even sit with her anymore if he saw it. As unrealistic as her thoughts truly were, she was convinced by her maltreatment of her deformity. So much she couldn't bring herself to eat in front of him, even as her stomach loudly grumbled. "You're very nice, Aren....." was her response to his mini speech about names. It might've been more elaborate if she wasn't in mild pain from hunger.

    Aren stopped eating once Mini started to beat herself up again. How could he eat while she was so depressed? Aren placed a comforting hand on Mini’s shoulder in an attempt to help. “Mini I have watched myself be mutilated or have other terrible actions performed on me multiple times. A few burns won’t disturb me. Besides I care about what’s on the inside, your a nice person Mini and what ever your face looks like isn’t going to change that.” Aren smiled in hopes that Mini would also start smiling. “I’ve experienced real despair and I can’t stand others feeling sad. I’m nice so others can have something to be happy about.”
